This eyeliner is interesting in his it's actually a gel liner in pencil form. Because of its formula, it glides on easily during application which is a huge plus. I honestly thought liquid was harder to control, but I guess there is less precision since the tip is bigger on this liner. I recommend that you close your eyes and carefully line your eyelid. Do shorter strokes for more precision and build until you like the eyeliner look that you've done.
