I really like the “tight line” look of eyeliner I learned back in high school. I was on a search for a tool to achieve this look in pencil form. An artist confidently pointed me to EmphasEYES as something that would have staying power when you apply the “tight line” close to your lashes. But this failed in almost every respect. The applicator delivered a very wide line after just one use. There was zero staying power. No matter what look you are trying to achieve, the delicate and thin pencil makes it hard to apply. So far I have yet to find a pencil to get this look so I am sticking with my gel liner or wet powder.
