Is this the same as Trish McEvoy's Finish Line?
I have some Finish Line I used to love for a clear-coat eye-makeup setting lotion type of thing, but now that I'm using higher-end makeup, I don't need it (over YSL and Guerlain eye shadows, etc.). I just ordered the Mercier Tightline kit from Sephora, before reading that this activator is "needed" - wondered if the Finish Line would do the same job. Looks identical, similar pricing & size. Thanks.

on Tightline Activator
I've never used the product you mention, but I'm sure it will work well, too. The activator is used to wet the product as you apply instead of water, and it looks like yours is applied over the lid after application.
No, you can still use just water (preferably filtered or distilled) with the cake eyeliner / tightliner.
However, once you use this activator, or any other activator, you can't go back to water. It somehow stays on the brush, and affects the surface of the cake eyeliner.
I would only recommend the activator if you need something really waterprooof, and don't have a problem with sensitive eyes. It is a type of plastic after all.
