Are you sure there's more liner in the pencil? It could be that you're just out of the product. Sometimes holding the pencil upside down will get the liner to come out, but it sounds like a mechanical malfunction.

Personally, its okay for the first hour or two, but runs and settles below the waterline soon after. Usually left me with a more "racoon eye" look. It tended to accentuate my dark circles too.

answer 4
Make sure your skin is dry when you apply it, but it looks great on bottom lashes as well. I just put it on lighter than the top lashes. Depending on how oily your skin is you may have to reapply but not often. Twice max (if you wear it all day)

I've had no problems applying on the bottom half of my lower lid. (P.S. I actually stopped applying to the entire lower lid because a makeup artist told me doing that makes your eyes look smaller).

answer 6
Yes, it works well for the lid/ lash line in that it's really long lasting, especially if you have oily skin. I would go easy on lining your inner rim with this though, as it's waterproof. Just a little near the lash base and not all over the rim works well.

Yes, you can sharpen this eyeliner even though it is retractable. Pull out the smudge tip to reveal the sharpener. Place the eyeliner tip inside and twist-- you will have a like-new point again!

Twist up to use it as a medium pencil. You can remove the smudge-tip and stick the pencil part into the sharpener that is under the smudge tip to make a very fine point for a thinner line.

it a twists up but at the bottom (under the smudge tip) there is a sharpener that can be used to make the point sharper. When you first get it the point is sharp so you can do a thin line. After you use it once the tip becomes round and kinda fat, Harder to do a thin line, but the sharpener just kinda reshapes it into a point. Hope this helps.

Pull the sharpener out by the smudger on the back and use it to sharpen what you've twisted out of the lined pen. You can get a very fine line.

Does this eyeliner come in a matte navy??
I LOVE this eyeliner. I normally use the dark brown/black or classic black, but I am trying to use navy more for my brown eyes. I tried the Shimmer Navy, but the shimmer seems to detract from the boldness of the pigment. Is there a Matte Navy of this liner somewhere out there??

There does not appear to be a Matte Navy-- but they do have a Matte Charcoal and a Matte Brown Black. I like the Matte Moss and the Matte Deep Plum (my eyes are hazel) and I used an eyeshadow of a similar color that I usually blend into the eyeliner. I think you might like going a little lighter with your eyeliner-- will give you a more subtle, less "made-up" look-- more natural.

The slate color is a matte blue that is very flattering to brown eyes. It's not quite navy but it's also not grayish blue per it's description. I guess I would say closer to a denim blue. Hope this helps!

I just bought the silver color and it looks like white with a hint of grey.(If that makes sense) I have a light olive skin tone and it shows up on me nicely. I'm almost positive you don't have to worry about it not being noticeable on you. I actually think it would look pretty with your green eyes if not worn heavily.
