So tiny and cute! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a liquid liner tip as teeny as the one atop the new Hourglass Script Precision Liquid Liner pen ($32).
The pen’s extra fine 0.5mm nib would make drafting pens jealous. New for summer, it’s built for the ultimate in line drawing precision and lays down fine, thin lines along my lash line with very little skipping. It did, though, take me a couple of minutes of fiddling to find a good position to hold the pen, as the tip is shorter than most liquid liners and feels a little awkward in my hand.
Jett, the single color available, looks like a shiny grayish black with blue undertones on me.

If you and Jett hit it off, hang on to your receipt until you’re able to make sure your pen works because the first one I tried had problems. The tip had dried up and wouldn’t work at all. It might’ve been a fluke, but for $32 (expensive!), you definitely want one that works.
I’m nit-picky about my liquid liners and don’t change favorites very often. LORAC Front of the Line Pro has been my jam for the past few years. It’s about $10 less than the Script and probably remains my favorite overall (creates a mean cat eye flick at the end), but Script does have the upper hand when it comes to precision with super thin lines. It’s downright expensive, but Script might be worth it if you like the look and don’t mind a splurge.
