I am in two minds about this product. It is affordable and you get two different tips which is great for doing different looks. Usually the colour pay-off of any Essence product is awesome. After trying both sides I felt like I did not get the intense black that I wanted. The felt tip was firm but the ink would run out mid-stroke and I do not have the patience to keep going over the line three or four times. I find their gel liner to be way better and after a bit of practice I can do my eyeliner in 5 minutes.
