Smashbox | Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner Violetta | Review

I used to always be an avid eyeliner girl. From the age of about 14 I really got into black coal liner (didn't we all?!) and wore it religiously everyday. Don't get me wrong, I was never in the emo/goth stage, I only ever wore it under and above my lash line and would occasionally dabble in wearing it in my water line. Lately however (and by lately I mean the past year or so) I have be wearing a dark brown eyeshadow above and below my lash lines. I find that it gives a softer look and is a bit more natural as both my eyes and lashes are a very dark shade of brown.
I was fairly happy with this method of lining my eyes but was given, (as a present) a Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner. I have to say, I really love this product. It is so easy to apply and because of the twist and sharpen lid you're guaranteed a precise application every time. I love this way of sharpening a pencil liner because I like having a larger product to hold whilst applying, when I use a regular pencil I end up throwing it away once it is sharpened down to a certain size. It is very smooth and easily blended and is a soft natural brown with hints of purple and red. Don't be put off, these are only very subtle hints which help to draw out the natural flecks of colour within the iris. I do really like this liner however, I don't think I will wear it for everyday use. Mainly because it is a lovely present that is also quite expensive so I will probably buy a cheaper alternative, or stick to my eyeshadow and save my new Smashbox beauty for when I'm dressing up and going out.
What products do you use as eye liner? Have you tried any of the Smashbox liner products?
