Definitely not my favorite liner brush. I have many and this one is too fine and too flimsy. With most of my brushes it takes 2 dips into the gel liner pot to line one eye: one for the eye and another dip for the wing. With this brush I have to dip repeatedly and the result is more splotchy and less even. Therefore the texture of the liner in some places is a bit clumpy from filling in and it has more of a tendency to flake. I thought this would be HG for doing my wing, but it's not.

I only recommend this for doing precise lining on the inner corner (as in if you're going to line around your tear duct) or doing very fine detailed artistic pieces. Even then I'm not sure it will be the best choice.

I prefer, and actually adore, Sephora liner brushes. I recommend the black ferrule/handle point tip liner (similar to 210) and the silver Professional angled brush.

It's not the best thing ever but not the worse either. Good quality but costs much. I didn't have any fine point brushes so this filled the spot in my brush case...

it is the best brush for using with gel eyeliner!! i have used many like the mac 266, mac 231, smashbox #21 bent eyeliner brush and the bobbi brown ultra fine liner brush... none of them can compete with this one!! it has the finest tip and therefore is perfect for drawing closest to the lash line!! it is perfect for my asian eyes! but it does take several goes to make the perfect line... as it does takes up a little bit of gel liner product only!! but overall love~~ it also makes the most amazing flick at the end... and im in total control of the whole thing!! it takes a few days practice and it will be a keeper for all gel eyeliner users!! highly recommend!

Pro: Good for drawing a thin line.
Con: Not for cat eyes! I'm not really interested in a thin line. If it weren't too cute of a brush I would have returned it by now...

This works perfectly with my other eyeline staple: Mac Blacktrax liner. This creates a perfect line with gel gives good steady control and I can make the line as thin or thick as I need.

I LOVE this brush! Best. Eyeliner. Brush. Ever. I use it with MAC fluidline eyeliners and it creates a perfect thin line. You could also use it to create a thicker thin if you wanted. Sometimes I use a dark eyeshadow to line my eye instead of liner for a softer look and this brush is great for that too. I also love that it is one of the MAC brushes that is made of synthetic hair (I would not have bought it otherwise). I have had this brush for over a year now and it's like brand new, but if it evers wears out I would buy another one for sure!

I have come to realize that when it comes to lining your eyes with brushes, it really comes down to personal choice. I personally didn't care for this brush since I found it to be to flimsy of a brush. I know most woman prefer a thin over a thick eyeliner line on the eye, but I felt this brush was not sturdy enough for me to line my eye. I have much better control with the angled eye lining brushes. I did just order the 209 brush, and hope to fair better with that one, I believe I will have more control with that brush while varying from thick to thin lines, and everything in between.

$17.50 for one brush (15 cm).
I loved using this product with gel liners. It doesn't get any more love from me only because my HG eyeliner is Blinc's black eyeliner. It's a very precise, good quality brush overall.

My latest brush purchase, and quite a good one. This brush is tiny, dense and pointy, and just begs you to get into gel liner even if you're sceptical about it. So I did, and it works wonders. It can create from the thinnest, sharpest lines possible to the boldest, most dramatic wings. Wonderful performance, no complaints about it whatsoever. Would repurchase.
