MAC's Penultimate Eyeliner, was by far the most intimidating eyeliner I've ever tried to use. Today I decided to try this out again, and I didnt fail miserably!! The application is very precise and the pigment is true black. The tip is very "marker like" so if you dont mind a tad bit of tugging on your lid, this may be worth trying out. Any little miss-haps can be fixed with a pointed Q-Tip and make up remover. Retailing at $17.50, you will definitely get your money's worth. This is going to be a great tool for me on the go!
