Your morning is going well—you worked out, made your lunch, and, gasp, liked the first outfit you put on—but then, your eyeliner point breaks with no sharpener in sight. This waterproof kohl pencil comes with a self-sharpener, so your smooth a.m. routine can continue without a hitch. It glides on easily and with the precision of a liquid liner and can safely be applied on the eye’s inner rim (aka the waterline).

Good Eyeliner

How it works: In order to extend the liner out of the pencil you tug down on the part of the pencil. Once you extend the liner out, you can't retract it (put it back in the pencil), so it just ends up getting sharpened away inside the cap that you twist on. Inside the tip of the cap is a little conical space (I'm assuming) that shapes the eyeliner to be a perfect point every time you use it.
The eyeliner is good quality. Very pigmented, nice texture. However, I felt like there wasn't a lot of product in the pencil since I used it all up in 3 weeks max. I was really surprised! The liner broke off a few times, wasting a lot of the 1 inch (or 0.01oz) of liner that comes in the pencil. If you have serious issues with eyeliner sharpeners, then I say this product is for you! I would rather buy Smashbox's normal pencil and spend the same amount for 4 times the product (0.04oz).

long lasting

The twist mechanism on these pencils are great and they last for ages. But, it isn't always possible to get the tip quite as sharp as you might like.

great for beginners
Purchased

I bought this eyeliner pencil for my 13 year old daughter. What I love about it is that the pencil is soft enough that she can apply it without it dragging on her eye yet hard enough that it does not crumble when sharpened. The self-sharpener makes the task a cinch.

Eyeliner goes on smooth, but not a great color
Purchased

When I saw this eyeliner on the Birchbox website, I really loooked like it was black....not so much. It's a strange grey color. It goes on great, but the color is much lighter than I normally use. It's getting returned.

Okay

I just started wearing eyeliner and I found this kinda hard to apply because the tip breaks off easily. Other than that it was okay and it lasts all day!

Only eyeliner I use

Found this a couple years ago and it's the only eyeliner I use now.. the tip is thin so it's easy to make the lines thin or as thick as you'd like with extra layers. Great price as well, love it!

Amazing!

This mascara is perfect for a day at the pool. It makes my lashes long, without clumping. It gives them so much volume and looks great after a long day.

My fave so far
Purchased

I am no expert at eye liner so I'm constantly trying new ones. My lines are always crooked or come out awful! This is the first eyeliner that I really enjoy. It is perfect for amateurs such as myself especially since it really does always stay sharp!

My one complaint and only reason I gave it one star less is cuz I've had it easily break off, even after just a couple issues. Then it's kind of annoying to attempt to get it full and sharp again.

Favorite Liner

I love a dark eye liner, I wear it everyday. This is the best one for a long wear. It doesn't smudge and it stays on throughout the day. Perfect!
