Sharp Sharp! Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl liner

Sharp Sharp! Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl liner

Yikes, how many of you have had use a blunt eyeliner pencil because you misplaced your sharpener or worse still your sharpener was blunt. It’s happened to me and using blunt eyeliner will give you smokey eyes you didn’t want in the first place.

Enter the retractable eyeliner pencil, no sharpening needed but no pointy tip either after first use. That said, with a little bit of elbow grease and you can still define your eyes and do all sorts to create different looks.

If you have been following me on BB or my website, you know I love gadgety make up that bends and twist and grinds  . . .  (eeerrr)

Enter the Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl liner, which has a sharpener built right into the cap for a perfect tip-so you'll always get a precise line. Now, that’s impressive. The Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl liner is an amazing product once you get the hang of using it.

I bought one in the shade Raven, a classic noir, black as midnight… wait midnight’s got a bit of blue in it right? Ok, but you get my point.


When I first used it, it was sharpened already, so it glided on easily, no pulling or tugging on my eyelid and had an intense colour pay off. Then I decided to twist the cap and watch the this baby do it’s magic . . . so I twisted away and when I opened the cap, a piece of the liner broke off . . . ooooooh I saw red, I was so hyped about the self-sharpening ‘what-what’ and now it was broken? 


While fake crying, I looked at the liner and staring at me was an arrow with the words ‘Twist’ written above it and guess what, I had twisted the eyeliner the wrong way. First-class idiot. But trooper that I am, I dusted myself off and tried again . . . and the pencil was sharp and pointed again.


With the technical malfunction sorted out, I decided to test its smudgebility (it’s wasn’t a word until right now) I swatched in on my hand, then drew another line beside it and rubbed it with my fingertip and it didn’t blend out as much as I thought it would. But it did smudge.



Another great pro of this product of the Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl liner, is that it pushes out the right amount of product upwards, so you don’t waste the liner. Use to create a baby wings, albatross wing, Arabic-styled eyeliner liner and sultry smokey your water line and even tight-line, (this guy is safe to use in those areas). There are several colours in the range . . . pick your shade and play away. The possibilities are endless and its totes fun! The staying power is amazing and it wore well for me for a good 10 hours (long days at work) with no fading or moving. This baby didn’t go anywhere. Very well behaved.

If you love getting creative with eyeliner or love good solid black kohl, this product is for you.

Just remember to twist it the right way J
