Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
A few months ago, I purchsed two Bare Minerals Round the Clock Eyeliners. One shade called Noon, deep navy, the other called 10pm,brownish/black. The problem concerns the Noon eyeliner. It dried up in the pencil after a short time. At first I thought it was because the tip was dry and needed to be sharpened, so I tried to sharpen the rounded point off, only to remove more and more of the pencil itself. Rather than waste the entire pencil , I went to Ulta stores to purchase a Bare Minerals Eye liner sharpener. I was told that Bare Minerals does not make an eyeliner pencil sharpener, I was advised to buy a different sharperner. No difference. The eyeliner is dried up in the pencil. As I sharpen, the tips breaks off each time. It wasted half the $15 pencil. It is dry and does not apply with ease at all. I know this for sure because I haven't had the same problem with the other eyeliner I bought at the same time. This one is obviously defective. This problem did not happen for2 months after I had the liner, so I can not return it to QVC. If it were possible, I'd pay shipping charges which i will not do. Not worth it. No matter, these pencils so not have a sharp tip when sharpened, and the tip on my other good one bends and gets rounded so much that I can't even get a nice smooth clean line across the top of my eyelids. All in all not happy with the formula used for these pencils. Too much money to spend for these results. Maybe I just had a defective liner, but it didn't seem so in the beginning, but the points on these liners wear down quickly, just after two uses need to be sharpened again which wastes valuable pencil.
Not completely happy
I bought this at the store, and was a little upset to find it was a new liner - one that required a sharpener. I had gotten used to the old liners and thought they were great. The liner glides on nicely, but I have to sharpen it every day or else it goes on too thick. It breaks very easily, and the color was a little more blue than I thought it was. I going for the greyish brownish like granite liner. I really loved the old eyeliners and wish they were still available.
I purchased this product because the description said "waterproof". When it arrived, I immediately put it on and the tip broke. The product is extremely soft and no where did I read that a sharpener was required. The last BE eyeliner pencil I bought had a twist bottom. I tried sharpening the tip with a previous sharpener I had but the product is so soft that it didn't work. I feel like I just wasted my money.
Best liner ever!!
I have never been able to get liner on my waterline until now. I have fought with several different kinds of liners and threw them all away. Other liners tended to pull at my eyes or would just flat out not "write" on them at all...even trying to go old school and melting the tips didn't help... Then I found this. It glides on so smooth and effortlessly no tugging or pulling, just smooth and silky. It stays put all day, my eyes can water or cry all they want but my liner is staying put! Even on my waterline.
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!
