Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner is a waterproof eyeliner pencil that maintains a precise tip by automatically self-sharpening with every twist of the cap.

Benefits:
  • Built-in self-sharpener ensures a precise tip with every twist of the cap
  • Hyper-pigmented kohl for color-rich results
  • Long-wearing, waterproof and non-flaking formula
  • Can be used on waterline
  • Cruelty-free

This time-saving liner can also be used on the inner rim or as shadow. Just build up product on lid and blend out with a powder shadow. Don't forget to let it set!

Formulated without Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Phthalates, Oil, Fragrance, Talc & Alcohol.

To sharpen, simply twist the cap closed. If you hear a click, stop twisting. Line the waterline of the eye for major definition. Let set to maximize wear time.

        Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

        Love this eyeliner. Goes on easily, great color (penny lane - rich brown w/a bit of shimmer), lasts (I have oily lids and I still had some on after sleeping with it), and it's always sharp. There are no instructions so hopefully this review helps someone else...twisting the cap off, automatically moves more product out and sharpens at the same time.

                      How do you get this eyeliner to twist up? So expensive and not easy to use. The mechanics need work, it should be that difficult to figure out.

                        Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump the tip) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get a few months use out of this product.

                      Hello, so I got this eyeliner and i have used it down but when I try to push it down it's like it's been locked and it won't push up more eyeliner. And I can see the liner in there it just won't come up! So do I need to return it or is there a way to fix it?

                      Most brown eyeliners make my eyes look red. I have green eyes and very pale skin. Can you suggest a Kohl pencil shade that will not look reddish on me. Thank you

                        We suggest Sumatra or Penny Lane. They won't pull red and will look flattering next to green eyes and pale skin.
