Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Bring back the old liner please!
I do not like this liner at all. Every day I'm disappointed in it. It does stay on long, yes, but it is so hard to use. My BE store rep told me to buy a special brush to use it, so I did and even that doesn't work well. It clumps a lot and I feel like I do have to sharpen it often and so am wasting the product. I won't buy it again. I use another liner from a different company. I still love my other BE products though.
Great for oily, less visible lids despite problems
I've never had an eye pencil last this long. Normally I only get this longevity with liquid liner. But unlike liquid, this is a lot faster and easier to put on in the morning when rushing. It goes on really smooth, too. You don't have to warm it under hot water. I equate the pencil to clay. It goes on easily and is blendable for the first minute or two, but once it sets its there for good. If I want to add color to my eyelid I pair this with the shadow primer and it lasts from 6 am till after 9 pm. Otherwise I prep my eyelids with a quick swish of mineral veil and the liner is there at least till the end of the work day. I have oily eyelids and because not much eyelid skin is visible when my eyes are fully opened, liners and shadows always smear into my crease within a few hours of use. So this really is a feat.
However, I also understand why people either love or hate this product because it does run out kind of quickly for a pencil and once you sharpen it the tip is blunt again after one use. However I'm okay using the blunt tip because I don't mind the thicker line. Also you need a good, new sharpener for this. The first time I tried to sharpen one of these pencils I used a few year old sharpener that normally works fine for my wood pencils. But it completely gummed Up this pencil. But the BE people were nice when I returned it and as soon as I bought a decent sharpener it worked great. Despite these downsides I still give it a 5 because I have yet to find a pencil that lasts this long on my oily lids and I love the colors that are interesting and vibrant without being gaudy. So I'm okay paying a little more.
I was at a BE outlet the other day and picked up the former eyeliners: Big and Bright. I wanted to like them, and I thought I would because I saw reviews in which people begged for them back, but they didn't work for me. Maybe they were old, but I had to hold them under hot water for 10 seconds to become malleable enough to apply to my eyes and the colors were still kind of faded and weak. And within two hours they were gone. Nothing extraordinary about that formula, in my opinion. So I'm happy with the BE change! But different strokes for different folks. I could see how someone with less oily and more visible lids might prefer the ease of the Big and Bright twist-up.
I like it
I never used the eyeliner Bare Minerals had previously; so, I can't compare. But I have used other eyeliners before. By noon, my liner would be smudged and work its way into my fine lines, making me look a lot older. I bought a set of five colors and LOVE it. It stays put through a long day and doesn't work its way into the lines around my eyes. I love it!
Liked the old liner better
I just started using this eye liner after using up the old version. I REALLY liked the old version better. I liked that is was retractable. Mainly liked the fact that the older version had a less blunt point on it, thus making it easier to make a thinner line.
So sad, miss big and bright!
This eyeliner is horrible. I used it MAYBE 10 times and it's GONE!!! I didn't like how it was so hard to smudge for a more natural look. I miss big and bright! So sad!
Best Waterproof Eyeliner
I have three of these eyeliners and I love them!!! I wear the noon a majority of the time because I wear it for work. My managers also notice, even the guys and love the color. It lasts all day long and sometimes its difficult to get them off at the end of the day.
Bring back Big & Bright eyeliner
I am disappointed in this product. While this eyeliner is waterproof it is more difficult to apply. I have to sharpen it after every 2 to 3 uses. Please re-evaluate this product and consider bringing back big & bright.
stings my eyes and gives me a headache
I will say that it looks great on and it is waterproof, long wearing
However I had some wierd reaction to this eyeliner - it made my eyes burn just a couple hours after applying - they felt achy and I got a headache from it! I tried wearing it a couple of days and same reaction.. I was fine if I used other eyeliner. I have never had any reaction to bareMinerals makeup and was disappointed that this eyeliner didn't work for me. I LOVED the old Big & Bright eyeliner.. bareMinerals PLEASE BRING IT BACK!
I like that this new eyeliner is waterproof, but I feel like I have no control of where it goes whin I apply it, and I have to sharpen it ALL the time. It is almost as if the point you sharpen it to squishes as soon as you touch your eyelid. I strongly miss the old Big and Bright twist one that I loved so much!
Please bring back old eyeliner
I used this eyeliner approximately ten times and it has run out. I don't like that you can not purposely smear it like you could with the old eyeliner. I loved the old eyeliner. Please bring it back. This was a major disappointment. I love Bare Escentuals products, but not this one
