I wanted this to be better since I was comparing it to the Urban Decay 24/7 pencil, but it's pretty good. Glides on well, super dark pigment (I have the black shade), but it transferred too much to my lower lashline. I didn't even apply any to the lower lashline, but I think it migrated because I apply eye cream during the day, which might have caused some shifting. Doesn't last all day, but while it does, it's a crisp, dark line that I love. Go for the UD version if you're looking for a truly life-changing liner.

Not a big fan of this product. Did not stay on, and constantly have to do touch-ups.

I've had this product in a few of the colours. I really like the variety of colours and the ease of use. I have found that small liners I've got from subscribtion boxes or palettes tend to be on the drier side, compared to the larger size.

I bought this eyeliner at Shopper's Drug Mart recently, when my usual eyeliner was not in stock, and I was completely out of alternatives. The sales associate recommended it to me, but I was not too crazy about the price (I think I paid about $24 for it). The salesgirl was wearing it and it did look quite lovely, so I decided to go for it, since I was having an eyeliner emergency, and am I ever glad that I did!

The colour is highly-pigmented and intense. I bought it in the "Onyx" shade and it really brightens up my murky green eyes. It's waterproof, but not hard to wash off, and it doesn't smudge. My job involves a lot of physical activity, and this eyeliner stays put throughout an 8-9 hour shift. At the end of the day, it looks just as fresh as it had in the morning.

The sharpener is handy, but it does not give you a super-sharp point. It took me a while to get used to applying it, but now that I know what I'm doing, it looks fantastic. Since it is so highly-pigmented, I don't find myself going through it as quickly as I did with other pencil liners. I bought it at the beginning of January, and I am not even halfway through it (it's mid-February now).

I am so in love with this eyeliner that I will continue to cough out $24 bucks for it every couple of months for it.

I was looking for a new pencil liner and was feeling indecisive. It happens, a lot. So I threw a bunch of brands (MAC, Smashbox, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, and Lancome) into a bowl (I have a pretty glass bowl for such occasions).

I pulled out Smashbox and then went and bought their Limitless Eye Liner. I liked how the name just rolled off my tongue.

It's not the sharpest point, and the colour didn't seem rich, but I gave it a go.

After 16 hours. I desperately need sleep.

It glides on and stays put.

Like it.

I got this recently in a Smashbox kit from Shoppers Drug Mart in the shade Golden Ivy. This is my first experience with a Smashbox liner and I was actually surprised at how much I like it. The sharpener at the end of the lid is really good for me because I am ALWAYS losing my sharpeners. But it's also a bit of a pain because every time I go to open the liner it, I wind up opening the sharpener and not removing the lid of the pencil. DOH!

The shade is a highly-pigmented, beautiful, dark earthy-green, with just a *slight* shimmer of gold. A hardly even noticeable shimmer, but it gives the color some life and depth, rather than being a flat muddy tone. It works well alone or even under my loose mineral powders, of which I have a gazillion.....I've tried it with a darker brown (from NARS), a dark shimmery green, as well as a lighter green AND gold-green. It's quite versatile. All look great with this pencil. It also looks good under natural lighting conditions, as well as incandescent and fluorescent light. Many types of makeup - I've found - don't. It also works great as a base under darker shadows on larger areas of the lid. Because it's creamy, the powders stick to it very well and don't wind up under your eyes.

The quality of the pencil itself is very good. It glides on very smoothly, doesn't tug or pull at the skin on your eyes, and can easily be applied in a thin or thick line. I don't believe it's waterproof, but it definitely is water-resistant. I ran it under water and it didn't run at all. Bonus. It also sharpens very easily and cleanly, not wasting much in the process like some other sharpener/liner combos do. Extra bonus :-)

Would I buy it again? Maybe. It's a bit pricey if buying on it's own. Then again, most decent brands' liners are around this price now. I actually prefer the Makeup Forever Aqua liners as they are completely waterproof and have a lot of beautiful shades, as well as being very creamy. That being said, this shade from Smashbox is not one I've seen done this well by other brands before, and I love anything which is earth-toned. I'm usually not a big pencil-user as I normally wet-line or buy cream & gel liners due to their easy spread-ability, but the quality is definitely there with this one. Definitely not a waste of money (although the kit I got in in WAS).

I was originally shopping for Benefit's BADgal liner but unfortunately the store I was at did not have it in stock. The sales associate recommended this Smashbox eyeliner and raved that it had great staying power. It has pretty good staying power but my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner stays on longer. I bought this in the color Onyx. What's great about this product though is that it has a built-in sharpener which is convenient. I don't regret buying this but there are better eyeliners out there.
