This eyeliner is pretty good -- As long as I have it relatively sharp, it goes on really smoothly, and I can create a pretty continuous solid line the way I want. It's a bit of a waste sometimes though because I constantly have to sharpen and resharpen and I feel like a lot of the product is wasting away with the shavings. I don't know, maybe just the visual of me throwing away the shavings with all that black makeup left on it makes the impression on me worse. But I would still repurchase, since I haven't tried many "non-drugstore" ones, and this is a good starter for me. Not my HG, but good enough for now. BTW, I have this in a black.
