I absolutely love this Eyeliner!! I also have a problem with not capping the pens correctly and therefore dries out... but when you only spend $2 I CAN do this all the time if I need to!! For only $2 I have recently went and bought the whole stack from the store just as a back up!! This goes on so smoothly and without eye irritation which I have found with other liquid eye liners! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
