My Thoughts: This is a really fantastic felt tip liner! It's tapered to be thicker at the bottoms so you can adjust the width of your line by how you lay it against the skin, which I think is fantastic. We all know how it can go sometimes, when you start with a thin line and think you'll just add another swipe to build up the width and suddenly it's either too thick or the sides don't match so you have to go back and forth.... until you look like a raccoon. It's ok. Even us pros have those days. It takes a little getting used to, but you can adjust how you lay this against the skin (the more flush/parallel to the eyelid the thicker the line) to get a different thickness for different looks with one swipe.
It can get a bit bogged down with eyeshadow (a definite drawback of using felt tips to begin with), so make sure that you wipe it off on a tissue or paper towel between eyes so that you're getting the most liquid into the tip and onto the skin for a clean densely pigmented line. I also hold it with the tip pointing down for a few seconds in between swipes so that gravity can help pull the liquid into the tip evenly.
The one downside I have with this eyeliner is that it doesn't wear as long as some others I've used. Don't get me wrong, you aren't going to be looking in the mirror an hour from now and wonder where the heck your eyeliner went, but I personally have pretty stringent guidelines on how long I like to have lasting power to my products before they require a touch up. I guess it's from working primarily in the bridal industry for the past five years, where I needed the makeup I applied to clients to literally last 18 hours through sweat and tears or on myself for 12+ hours with absolutely no time to grab a bite of food let alone worry about how my makeup looked. (It's amazing how many photos you end up in the background of when you're a makeup artist on the wedding day. When representing as a pro makeup artist, you need to always looks perfectly pulled together, even if you're starting at 6 am two hours from home and going until 6 pm on wedding number three!)
Final Verdict: Great liner for short(er) periods of time, like an average work day. You'll need to touch it up if you want to last past dinner though.
