Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liner in 3D Pacific

Today I'm back with a beautiful shimmery eyeliner to share with you! Mondays can be hard, but hopefully Smashbox's Always Sharp 3D Liner in 3D Pacific* ($23 CAD/0.01 oz) can ease your way back into the work week!

"Ditch your sharpener-but stay sharp and shimmer on! A liner with reflective, 3D pearls that glides on and self-sharpens every time you twist the cap off. Inspired by Smashbox pros who sharpen before every use on set, this first-of-its-kind pencil has a sharpener built right into the cap for a perfect tip-so you'll always get a precise line.
To maximize the shimmer factor and really make eyes sparkle, first line with a dark hue, then layer a lighter shade over it!" - Smashbox

I absolutely love the packaging of Smashbox's Always Sharp 3D Liners! How genius - a sharpener built in to the cap! To remove the cap, simply twist off, and your pencil is sharpened at the same time. I also love that the packaging is colour-coded to the actual shade of the liner. This makes finding the right shade in the morning so much easier! As promised, the tip has been sharp each time I've used this liner, and I love that I don't lose any product like I would with a traditional liner while sharpening. I do find that the point of this liner creates a very thin line, but it can be built up of course to a thicker line. I've used this on my lid and lower lash line. I have to say that I prefer this on my lower lash line, just because I love wearing black on my lid. Thankfully, there is a black shade in this range!

3D Pacific is a beautiful shimmer emerald shade. I love how shimmery and metallic this shade is, but I do wish that it was just a bit more pigmented. The colour can be built up with a second swipe, but it still isn't a highly pigmented, bold colour. Nevertheless, I do love the shade 3D Pacific, especially on my lower lash line. I think that this green would look gorgeous on brown eyes!
Do be aware that Sephora's website is displaying 3D Pacific as a "seafoam mint green", which I definitely don't agree with. This colour is a light emerald, and it's a few shades darker than a traditional mint green colour.

Worn on my lower lash line, this liner lasts all day long, and takes a good makeup remover to get every last trace off. You have about 15 seconds to smudge out the colour, but once it sets, it's on for good. I love this, because I tend to rub my eyes throughout the day due to pesky allergies. The last thing I want is for my green liner to get all over my face, which thankfully never happens when I'm wearing 3D Pacific!

Smashbox's Always Sharp packaging is truly innovative, and it's definitely something that I hope more brands start to do. I would be more than happy to never have to use a pencil sharpener ever again! I do wish that 3D Pacific were a bit more bold & pigmented, but I still do love this colour. Have you tried any of Smashbox's Always Sharp 3D Liners? Would a products packaging sway you to buy the product?

  5. The fact that this actually sharpens each time you use it is so cool. Most liners say they are self sharpening but it really just means it's a twist up lol
