I mean if it's uncomfortable, I would say get a new one. I find that the ultra fine doesn't last that long. That's saying a lot since it cost like over 25 bucks for something so small. I bought my ultra fine over 2 years ago and a year into it's life the wood started buckeling. So if I would try to line with it, it would wiggle. Now I use it as a lip brush just to make it useful.
