Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner

makeup review nude liner

High praise for the Always Sharp waterproof liners from Smashbox: there’s a sharpener built into the lid that goes to work on the point every time you screw it shut. Great idea. They really are always sharp! The nude shade is particularly good for lining the waterline to make your eyes look brighter and more awake – for me, nude is always preferable to white. White next to the whites of your eyes always just looks dirty. It does on me, at least.

These waterproof liners stay on pretty well – I have been using the ‘smoke grey’ one quite regularly and it lasts a good few hours without touching up. The formula is nice, too – no eye watering from this one.
