Im going to go against the grain here and say I use it and I get a straight line with it, I twist the first bit out and then put it on a makeup wipe then twist again and use little strokes to apply, it takes forever but the end result is eye makeup that never transfers and is hard to wash off!
So maybe a bit of practice for me Lemon. I tried last night, putting the first bit on my hand thinking I could pick it up from there as I needed it but it dried too quickly! I'm not used to an upper lash line so anything looks heavy to me just now but will persevere before I call it quits! Thanks.
It's terrible. Get a gel liner in a pot and a brush. Shu Uemura painting liner is my all time fave, MAC and Bobbi Brown are good - but having said that the high street gel liners have pretty much caught up now, Top Shop's is really great.
I'm a heavy black liner user and I struggled with it. As a pp said, try a gel liner. I use the maybelline one that comes in a little jar and you get a brush with it. Still takes practise but doesn't budge once it's on!
Tried it again today. I did get a straight line but it came out in lumps and was very gloopy so there was quite a lot on the back of my hand by the time I was finished. Will probably use it up and then try something else. Have tried Bobbi Brown gel liner but it just blots straight onto my upper lid when I open my eyes.
I get the dreaded imprinted line as well (from Bobbi Brown and MAC gel liners). I bought the Urban Decay Razor Sharp liquid one a few months back and absolutely no imprints now. Just stays put all day. The brush is really thin, which I like as well. Have heard good things about the Kat Von D ones as pps said.
