Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Wanted to love it, but...
Bought the new style of BE eyeliner when my Bright Eyes ran out. I assumed I would love it because I love everything else from BE, but unfortunately not this. The color is pretty, and it stays on like you won't believe. However, it goes on so dark and thick that is doesn't look at all natural. I tried to blend it with my fingers, and with my old Bright Eyes foam tip, but it got flaky and came off completely. There is potential, but this product needs more work.
I have loved all the BE products for over 5 years. This is a big disappointment. The colors are too intense and dark, the product has to be sharpened too frequetly just to get some product, and cannot be corrected easily if the line gets too thick which happens if you don't sharpen it every time. Loved the old liner but won't be buyng anymore of this new liner. Buxom eyeliners will be my new liner. Glad I have a couple of the old liners left.
Jury is out -
I went into a boutique to replace my dark brown Big & Bright Liner. I was told the formulas had been updated and purchased the 9pm. Initially I loved it. This liner applies like butter! It is smooth, silky and it does not move once it is on. The only draw back I have found is that I cannot get a sharp point for a thinner line.
I'm back to using the powder formula for a thin line. Do I love it? Yes. Is it an all around liner? Well it needs some fine tuning.
Keep working on this one BE!
It's good but not great
It stays on really well and doesn't smudge, but on the other hand it does go on very dark, so it isn't great for everyday use. I liked other eyeliners by bare escentuals much better.
Great color, stays put all day!
I have been looking for an eyeliner that stays put all day and doesn't give me racoon eyes by the end of the day. This stuff is great! I will be purchasing many more colors!
Beautiful Color, but no sharpener??
I put this eyeliner on for the first time today and I fell in love with this color! It's a gray-green and looks great with my green eyes! I love how it has stayed put all day long without smearing or fading like my other non-waterproof eyeliners do. I sweat easily and have oily skin so usually my eyeliner fades by the end of the day. It doesn't happen with this waterproof eyeliner! I love the product itself.
Having said that, I'm extremely disappointed that it is not retractable like their regular eyeliners. I can already tell that I'll only get a few more uses of this before it will need sharpening and from what I've already read in reviews, it doesn't sharpen well. So in the end, it's not going to be worth the price I paid since I can't get full use out of the product. Very unfortunate - especially with it being a high quality liner!
Very smooth and rich- need to buy sharpener to use
This has got to be the smoothest, richest eyeliner -short of an actual liquid liner- I've ever used.
I was completely confused about how to use the liner at first because I am so used to the Big & Bright Eyeliner that twists up and has an end attachment with a sharpener and smudger.
I quickly realized that this eyeliner is just your run-of-the-mill, need to purchase a cosmetic sharpener to continue using it.
That is disappointing, considering the price of the product, and having been accustomed to the previous type of BE liner with its accessories built into it.
Getting past all of that, the liner is very nice: extremely smooth and shockingly rich to apply. With the Big & Bright Eyeliner, I sometimes had to draw and redraw over the line to make it bolder and richer. So I'm very satisfied with this product and happy to adjust!
Bring back the old eyeliner
Very unhappy to get this in my order. It does not go on as nice, there is no sharpener with it, no smudge tip. I went with another brand and everything else on my face is Bare Escentuals.
OK but not Awesome!
After having used the Big & Bright eyeliner in Intense Black for so long I was very disappointed in this new version! My old one ran out and I went to repurchase but it was no where to be found locally. This version replaced it, while it is doable you have to be careful applying as it smears quite easily. I can't speak yet on longevity but I know I could put on the old version in one easy swipe and it would last all day till bed!!
Pleeeeaassee Leslie, bring back the original.....as the saying goes....."IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT"!!!
BE has gone totally backwards with this product. I was so excited when you came out with the retractible eyeliner pencils. 2 things horribly wrong,
1. It has to be sharpened!
2. It is waterproof. I react to ANYTHING waterproof.
I was using another brand of eyeliner until you came out with the other. I guess I will have to go back to them.
