Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
I do not like giving BE a bad rating but this eyeliner is terrible. It does not stay on for very long and I was so happy to finally find an eyeliner that actually will go on my inner lid and have an awesome color. I love the color but the eyeliner came off shortly after I put it on, it did not stay for very long. My eyes were not even watering so I have no idea why it didn't stay longer. Though I have to admit BE does make some good eyeliner that glides on very well. Please bring back the big and bright eyeliners!!

"Thank you for the great liners in my kits and I've received an eyeliner in all but one, I love my Tend Report and this eyeliner Round The Clock 10 AM in Midnight came in my kit and I LOVE it! I ALWAYS store my eyeliners in the frig. to keep them cold before I sharpen them, and I've done it this way for many years. I have not broken off one tip unless it was caused by my own negligence by pressing down too hard on the tip when applying.:( When you remove your eyeliner from the frig. it will be easier to sharpen versus one that is warm and has a soft tip. The cold tip will then glide more easily on the warm skin of your eye and give a smooth line. I still have my original sharpener I bought years ago, I just clean and dry it off and it's still like brand new. Please, just try this and see if this will help you like it has for me all these years. BTW, this helpful information was given to me by my friend that works selling high end cosmetics. Thank you Bare Minerals, Escentuals and Leslie for my wonderful kits. Happy summer to all the BE and BM lovers."
PLEASE bring back Big and Bright
When I first tried Big and Bright, I thought finally, an eyeliner that works for me. I was disappointed a few weeks ago to learn that it had been replaced, but I bought a couple of the Round the Clock eyeliners (brown and sage). The colors are beautiful, and I tried to like them, but returned them today. They are too fat (I like a fine line), do not go on smoothly, and are impossible to sharpen to a point. I love all my other BE products (foundation, READY blush, READY eye shadow, PrimeTime, mascara) but this eyeliner just does not make the grade.
How do you sharpen this thing?
Like the others reviewing this item, I love the color, but how do you sharpen it without breaking the actual eye liner product? I don't get it. It's expensive to begin with, BE should have created it like their other eye liners, twisting up or built in sharpener. Frustrated.
Like it, but disappointed
I was so excited to finally get the waterproof eyeliner. I love this color, and it does stay on with my watery eyes. However, it does not go on as smoothly as the Big & Bright, and does not have a built in sharpener. I can live without a smudger, but not the sharpener. Have been wearing the powder liners and the Big & Bright for so long, I had to go out and buy a sharpener. Won't be buying another of the waterproof until improvements are made. So disappointing.
Do not buy!
I purchased a Bare Mineral Kit from QVC. I received two eyeliner pencils in the kit. They worded just fine until I had to sharpen them. I have a high quality pencil sharpener, but no matter what I did with these pencils I could not get the eyeliner to apply to my eyelids. I tried everything. Waste of money. So disappointe,d as I have been using bare minerals products since they first came out. Back to the drawing board with this product.
Please remake to include a sharpener
I love this waterproof, non smearing eye liner. I have looked a long time for one that would not run and make you look like raccoon eyes half way through the day and this one really works for that. My problem with the liner is not being able to sharpen it. I loved the old one with the built in sharpener. I prefer a light thin line on my bottom lids and you can not get one with this liner. I will use it for my upper lids but will not reorder.
I love this color
I have hazel eyes and a great eyeliner color has been hard for me to find. I got this in the RSVP kit and love it. I am so glad to see that I can now buy a replacement liner as sharpening the original one has been a big problem.
Like the original liner better
The waterproof liner does not go on as smoothly as the original liners. The original liners also had a built in sharpener to get a good tip for thinner and more precise lining. The first time I tried to sharpen this the color pulled completely out of the pencil for about 2 inches.
I bought this on QVC before it was available in the boutiques and online. I love this. In my opinion, this is the best eyeliner BE has (better than the loose mineral liner and the Big & Bright). This has not irritated my sensitive eyes. The 8am is a dark brownish/black shade that is dark enough without being in-your-face black. This is very smooth, press very lightly or you will break the tip. I smudge with a BE liner brush and it softens the look yet without taking away the color intensity.
This stays on all day and wears nicely. I give this 5 stars because I love the color pay off, the wearability, the portability, and how smooth it is (no tugging!). However, there are a few things to be aware of, but it doesn't take away from my 5 stars: 1) make sure you put the lid on tight so it doesn't dry out. 2) be extremely careful when sharpening; this is very smooth, smoother than other "smooth" brands I've tried, and you can easily break the tip or oversharpen so that you waste a lot of product. 3) be very careful when applying so you do not press too hard, if you do you'll break the tip. I wrote to BE and told them a way to improve this would be to include a sharpener (hopefully built in) specific to this type, as the traditional sharpeners can been too much and take off way too much product.
In my experience, because it is so smooth and because of sharpening it, you will go through this faster than most similar liners...however, it is worth it!
