Smashbox Always On Waterproof 24-hour Liquid Liner Review

So I meant to write this review a little earlier but the first liner I received was super dried out and could barely make a thin line. So I called Smashbox and they sent me one that’s a lot fresher and works.Well kind of.

As you can see it’s got an interesting shape, but the liner tip is very sharp and makes some nice lines. The cap is a little strange to me as it’s angled. The ink inside is very dark and a matte black. The big drawback for me is ,even with the second liner, the ink was kind of dry. It takes a few swipes on my eyes to really get a nice line. doing short lines were okay but to do a nice longer wing , this liner kind of was a let down.

For this review I tried to do a bit more a fancier graphic liner look to really test out how well this eyeliner works. I will actually write a separate post showing off more of the batwing liner plus my inspiration behind it . But for now I will include a second look too that’s a bit more basic that kind of show’s how this liner works.

Look number 1. Batwing eyes.

I have done this look before but with the Nyx Epic liner and it definitely looked better.

It looks better from far away. Although you can’t really see the details of the wings very well. oh well.

Next look is a simple Cat Eye.

It’s dark , but still looks very messy somehow and not as crisp or sharp as my normal Nyx liner.

IMG_6178 (3)My liner was pretty patchy here even though I was just doing a simple eye look and my lash lines were still patchy. I’m not the happiest with this liner look. although face on it did look a bit better.

So far I’m still not a fan of Smashbox’s liner. I also used it on my eyes without eye makeup and it still seemed to be very dry. I just don’t think this liner is worth the price. Well that’s all for now. Let me know in the comment’s section of what you think. Maybe this is just a dry formula or not the best fit for me. Oh and for those curious the liner is water proof , and doesn’t smudge . But it’s still a pain to work with 😂

  1. I have Smashbox Always Sharp pencil liner and I like it pretty well. I’ve not tried the liquid one. But I have tried other liquid ones that are dry and as a rule, I prefer pencil liner.
