I can't believe how nervous I was about posting this!. ....prppygrl...can you believe I finally did it??!!!

There are different thicknesses but I use the brush thickness of '0000' (being the thinnest) there is also '000' and '00'. So you can see which sorta thickness you prefer. Not only do they do a thin line, or a thick line (depending on what you want) but in UK they only cost something like £2 - which is much cheaper than the 209 which is £12 - bargain! So even if you ruin it practicing and practicing its not the end of the world!
I was going to buy a fluidline and the 209 but I bought rimmel liquid eyeliner. Armed with my artist brush '0000' I practiced and practised and found that its pretty much fool proof. I apply little pressure in the inner part of the eye and slightly more pressure towards the outside to get a line that starts v thin and get gradually thicker towards the outside. But the key, as mentioned above, is practice makes perfect! And try out the artists brushes - you will never look back!
