MY THOUGHTS:

While, I liked this liner during swatching, I did not like it when using it for real. I know, I know… not what you were expecting, right? Well, see, what had happened was… it started-off working really well, but halfway through me drawing a line on the eye, the felt tip went dry! I don’t know if I received a bad pen or not, but the experience was horrible. I get halfway across the lid, everything is going great, then…

… it just stops working. I’m not holding the pen upside down or anything, either. I’m holding it paralel to the floor (as I do all felt-tip liners) and it quit working. I then proceeded to hold it tip-side down for a few seconds, went back up to the eye, and it worked for 2 seconds then quit again. It was the end of a love affair.

So, although I loved the pigmentation of the pen, I can’t deal with having to continuously pause to let liquid saturate the tip of the pen every few seconds. I don’t know if this was just a fluke of one pen, but I didn’t much enjoy dealing with it. Have any of you had a different experience? Let me know in the comments!
