I purchased this because I want to return to cream/gel eyeliner, and I prefer a little assistance in achieving my "wing". This brush is perfect! It's not too wide or large. My eyes are almond shaped and "slant" straight out on one eye and "slant" up on the other (we all got something). This brush makes my wing look more uniform. You can control the amount of eyeliner applied - I prefer a thin line with a tiny flick, though sometimes I feel like mimicking Adele. I've been able to achieve both methods without losing control of the brush or applying too much liner.
