I've done it both ways with the same results but to be safe you might as well paint it on. The best thing I've found for spreading is those cheap paint brushes with nylon bristles. They don't absorb any at all.

Now you do need to clear over the caps. On Haswell the die is very close to the row of caps and the LM spreads out over time.
