      How many times have you been halfway through putting on yoru makeup when you realize your liner needs sharpening? Or you sharpen it and the end isnt as smooth as you'd like it? This "Always Sharp" self sharpening liner is so convenient. Everytime you open the cap it is ready for easy application. Plus, the liner itself is amazing. It glides on so smoothly, that I can line my top lid with one or two strokes. Normally, some liners are great for big, dramatic winged eyeliner but they are too thick for everyday use. The tip is small enough I can gently line, but it manages to be perfect for all types of looks. I don't think I will ever buy a different type of liner again.

      This product would have been given the best score possible if the tip hadn't broken off 3 weeks after purchasing it I only used it to rim my upper lashes along the waterline..It's a delicate area that takes a bit of precision so it's not like you can apply a lot of pressure there!
      Now there is no product left! The tip! that's all you get!. so although it was perfect for me-the colour I purchased was 'Violetta' (which I don't see listed in the colour samples) was beautiful on my brown eyes and I love that it's long lasting waterproof .it really stays in place and doesn't transfer to my lower rim- like most eye-liners,.I can't justify spending close to $25 for a 'tip' of product! disappointing for such a beautiful product :(

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      Because I have hooded eyes I apply my eyeliner on my top waterline and I've been trying to find a pencil eyeliner that lasts long for watery and oily eyes. This one lasts probably only 5 minutes. After I applied my mascara, my eyeliner had already disappeared. I recently purchased Tarte Double Take and it lasts throughout the night.

      Too sharp and tip breaks

      By 

      from Boston

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I have owned this for three months and the tip has been breaking off countless times. It happens when the tip gets too sharp and the mechanism just chops the tip off because it can't sharpen anymore. Every time you screw the lid onto the pen and unscrew the lid the sharpen mechanism takes action. It is VERY FRUSTRATING that it doesn't know when to stop.

      Great product - lousy packaging

      By 

      from Norway

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I bought two of these, and loved them, until the tip broke after a few weeks. I managed to push out more liner by inserting a needle in the back, which took a lot of hard work. However,the sharpening mechanism won't work, I have to push it out manually every time.
      What I don't understand, is why Smashbox won't fix this design flaw. You could easily add an option to twist the bottom to get more product out in case of breakage.

      Until then, I'll stick to other products.

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I love this eyeliner because it stays out all day and glides on so easily. BUT, it is difficult to twist new product to use. It does not always reveal more kohl liner when you twist, which is frustrating.

      Love the pigment, but the product lacks.

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I bought the beautiful "penny lane" colored eyeliner. Color goes on smoothly on both eyelids and waterline, which I was happy about. Like most users, I had trouble learning how to get more product to pop up from the pen. I researched online and discovered that you actually have to press down the pen feature in a downward motion to get more eyeliner product. I didn't like that I had to research to figure this out--they should provide better instructions! Make it easier for consumers! Also, I felt that I used my eyeliner six times before the eyeliner ran out. What a bummer..!

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      Love the copper penny shade for my blue eyes, but like many other reviewers, am sick and tired of wasting money when tips break off after a few weeks at best and cannot get more product to come up. Very disappointing that years of reviews indicate this problem with no design fix.

      Great liner, mechanism needs work

      By 

      from Gardner, KS

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I have purchased this product twice. I love it, until it stops working. :( Both Times this liner has stopped twisting up more product after I've only had it for a short time. Since I liked this liner so much, I gave it a second try. I'm not sure if I can bring myself to spend the money a third time.

      Great product and breakage is a minimal problem

      By 

      from CT

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I have purchased about six of these, and just ordered more today! I love the colors and just like to have extras on hand in case I misplace one. As for breakage, it did happen to me only once. To fix it, I just put the cap all the way on and off a few times. When you twist the cap on, it automatically advances the pencil and sharpens it. So, by doing this a few times, I got enough product to advance, and it had a nice new point. It was only the tiniest bit that I lost when it broke off. Other reviews have mentioned something about advancing the pencil as part of regular use, but I never find that necessary since it's so automatic. Sometimes I will line just one eye, then put the cap back on and off, so I have a nice sharp point for the other eye. Anyway, love, love these eyeliners!

      Waste of money, tip breaks,no action brings up more product

      By 

      from midwest

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      This was my second one with a tip that broke. I've tried to pinch and push and twist, to no avail. I broke the first liner in half in frustration with a snarky salesperson, which showed there was lots of product left. A rip-off, there are plenty of other good liners out there to buy instead. Shame on you, Smashbox.

      Comments about smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I love this eyeliner, but I would highly suggest either providing neon printed instructions on how to get the eyeliner to extend or change the design ASAP! Pushing the tip up is not a standard way to get the eyeliner to extend! I threw two of these eyeliners away in the past because I thought what I saw and used must be what I got!
