I love, love, love this liner. It goes on so smoothly and is workable for several seconds before it sets. After it sets, it doesn't smudge. My holy grail eye liner... except for the problem sharpening it. Standard pencil sharpener and makeup-specific sharpeners do not work. I finally found a blog that said you must use a DOUBLE BLADE sharpener. OMG. She was right!!! Don't throw your liner out. Just get a double blade sharpener.
