I got both liquid with a one-time use syringe and a paste.

The liquid ate away at they syringe and started to eat away at the
plastic, making it leak, then drying out, indeed making it one-time use.

I still have the liquid bottle with no applicator, but also have the
paste, so I now mostly use the paste.

Make sure you get a flux paste rather than an acid paste.  This
shouldn't be difficult because I think the acid paste is deprecated or
only used in heavy duty applications.

As far as brands go, I don't remember any other than Kester...
