Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Please bring back Big & Bright!
While I agree that the colors are awesome, the liner itself is waaaayyyyy too soft and cannot be sharpened- even after freezing it! The line is too thick. I have to sharpen the pencil between eyes for each application. The value for the money just isn't there! Please Leslie, bring back the twist-up Big & Bright pencils! They were so much better! I have been a loyal BE user for 7 years, but have to find a different product/company for eyeliner. Don't waste your money!
Best eyeliner I've ever used
I have tried many, many eyeliners over the years and they usually end up around my cheekbones by the end of the day. This one has true staying power. It doesn't smudge or smear, except in the hottest weather when I'll get a tiny smudge at the corner of my eyes late in the day (of course, that may be due to the crow's feet wrinkles there). The colors are beautiful. I use the 5pm (deep plum) frequently as well as the 7pm (brown). I like the 3pm (copper) and 10am (green) but I don't see those available any more (please bring back the 3 pm copper! It's great for casual days). Please, please - never discontinue these.
Bring back the twist up eyeliner!
I went to the Bare Escentuals store in my local mall to buy more Granite eyeliner in the twist up applicator, but was disappointed to learn that all you sell now is the pencil type liner. I loved your twist up eyeliner, but will now have to purchase a different brand of eyeliner. Please bring back the twist up for those of us who hate the pencil type liners! I'm trying to be a loyal customer, but just do not like your Round the Clock pencil liner.
Bring back Big & Bright!!
Bought this product excited that is was waterproof, smudgeproof, etc. Worked great until I had to sharpen it. The product turned mushy to the point I needed to use a BE eyeliner brush to make the line even. But you have to smudge it quickly because the product sets almost immediately. I still love BE, but pleeease bring back Big & Bright!!!
Bring back the twistable
This pencil in no way compares to the older (discontinued) twistable one! Was very disappointed with this one and will not buy any longer from Bare Minerals.
Please bring back the twistable!!
I use this on my upper waterline, but after an hour or two, it has smudged down to my lower waterline. I'm constantly having to check and wipe them clean.
Alternatively, if I use it on my lower waterline, it smudges away and becomes patchy and blotchy.
Not impressed, BE.
Pencil sharpener - Really?
The color great! The first application smooth....but a pencil sharpener that leaves jagged edges to use on my eyes: No Way.
Bring back your automatic (read as no sharpener required) liners- they were the best.
I bought the sampler pack quite some time ago and it included three smaller colors and one large one, plum. I love the way it stays on all day. It does need to be smudged, and I wish Bare Escentuals sold a smudger, but I do like it. Colors are a little dark for me, I'm blonde, but once smudged, they work great and stay on forever, until you purposely take them off. I only had problem with one, it was the darker blue, I forget what "time" it was labeled, but I literally couldn't get the top off, had to ask my husband to get it off and once he did, with plyers I might add, it crumbled. Couldn't sharpen it, so I think there was something wrong with that particular pencil, because the rest work just fine, sharpen okay with the included sharpener that came with the kit. I would buy them again. Only one I have found that doesn't wind up in the middle of my eyelid by mid-morning. Like I said, stays put.
I'm So Upset!!!
I have very sensitive eyes. I finally found an eye liner that I can wear and now you have discontinued it. I have used the "Big and Bright" eye liner for a long time and never had a problem. I bought the new "Round the Clock" and my eys burned all day. I am terribly upset. I am almost out of my granite, midnight and charcoal and I can't find any more. PLEASE BRING IT BACK or tell me where I can get some. I hate to have to change makeup brands. I love Bare Minerals. HELP!
Good, at first
I really LOVED this eyeliner, at first. The first day or two I marveled at how smoothly it went on, how long it lasted, and how good it looked. The problem came when it needed sharpening. No matter what sharpener I use, it does not sharpen properly. The soft coloring just falls apart and the sides break. It's almost unusable at this point. For such a soft lead, it should be a mechanical twist up pencil. I'm so sad that a week or so after purchase, my $15 eyeliner is useless. I guess I'll go back to drugstore brands.
