I'll be quite honest, I do not have a lot of experience with eye markers. It seems they take a lot of practice, especially with this formula. It is very "wet" upon application and take a few minutes to dry. I'm not quite getting a nice straight line with this product but that is certainly user error. I do like that you can wait a couple minutes and then smudge it out. I'm having a bit of a time trying to wing it out, it might be a tad runny but if I had my blowdryer handy, that could have done the trick.
After smudging, I love it. It gets close to the lash line and looks great.
I literally got this eye marker for pennies because of the infamous Rite Aid sale and with 2 separate coupons. I'm glad I picked it up!
