Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
I went in to buy my usual eyeliner the mechanical pencil in chocolate and was told that it was replaced by these new Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliners. So I bought the 9PM.
I do love the way it glides on and that it doesn't smudge like the previous ones but I am not able to sharpen it to where I can get a point or even keep it sharpened for more than one days application. I have had it for one week now and have used more than half of it because of sharpening issues. I am very disappointed that the old product was replaced. Bare minerals is the only eye liner I have been able to wear due to allergies and now I don't know what I am going to do. Please work on improving this product or bring back the old quickly!!!!
Dries out quickly
I got a few of these in kits around the holidays. All three have dried out and WILL NOT apply. I bought a sharpener and it just obliterates the tip. The only advantage to the sharpener is that the whole stick of eyeliner came out and I put it back in upside down and that end was not dried out..but it was flat so I had a huge line...awful. Hope BE brings back the Big & Bright liners or fixes this one. I only gave it one star because none was not an option.
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.
