When I first tried it out, I completely hated it. It dragged along my lashes resulting in a blobby uneven line, the thickness was impossible to control and my flick looked awful. The only good thing was the pigmentation - it is very black. Not wanting to have wasted my money I persevered with it and now I finally see what all the fuss was about. I think there's a bit of a learning curve with this product but once you get used to it, it's actually quite good. The liquid is instantly opaque and comes out smooth if you hold it at the right angle. I find using the very tip of the pen results in a better application & the thickness is easier to control. The nib of this eyeliner pen is very thick and hard. It's like drawing on your eyes with a felt tip pen. It's easy to get into your lashes so there's no visible gap left. One area where I think it is better than my other fave eyeliners is that the actual product is housed within one pen so you don't have to keep dipping the applicator into the inkwell. I still don't like that it transfers onto my upper eyelid but that might be more to do with the shape of my eyes than the quality of the product. I never had that problem with Superliner or Artliner though. It does the same thing whether I wear primer or not. Sometimes it also transfers to the inner corner of my bottom lash line but otherwise the staying power is impressive. Despite this, it is also easy to remove so you don't have to tug at your eyes to get it off.
Personally I still prefer the flimsier pointed sponge tip applicator found in the likes of Artliner & Superliner but this thicker felt tip style isn't too difficult to master either. I'm sure there's many people out there who find it even easier to use. It's probably a better choice for your handbag if you need to touch up on the go too. At just £6 it is brilliant value for money. Once you figure out how to get it to work for your eye shape, it's a piece of cake.
