Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Disappointed in this liner
I prefer the twist eyeliner. The line was thinner, and the pencil didn't need sharpening. This newer liner goes on thick enough for going out to a club at night, but goes on too thickly for the office.
Not - "waterproof" and "round the clock"!
I have found, from 7 am to 4 pm, not ALL day, by any means, the mascara leaves shadows under my eyes every day. Enough so, that I must remove and reapply at 4:00! (I have a "look" as if i have slept in my makeup - THAT bad, of a problem! And I don't even have oily skin)
Waste of money!
I agree with all of the others, PLEASE bring back the big and bright eyeliner!!!
It's a mess, it's hard to put on without it being way to thick, and you have to sharpen it! I would guess that by only getting 2 1/2 stars, maybe you will reconsider?
I have switched to Bobbie Brown's eyeliner
Bring Back Big & Bright Eyeliner
I have to agree with many other reviews regarding the messiness and difficulty to use. And I hate sharpening it. It seems an antiquated type of liner. I have the big and bright eyeliner and love using it. Please bring it back! If I can't find that type of eyeliner among your products I will be forced to buy a different brand. I would like to remain with your product as it does not irritate my eyelids which is why I started using it to begin with.
No better eyeliner out there
I have always hated having to try and put on eyeliner. Every brand I ever tried was so hard to put on that I sometimes would have to use a lighter to soften the liner so that it would go on my eyes. I definitely do not have to do this with Bare Minerals eyeliner. I absolutely love it!!! It is very creamy and yes, I do have to sharpen it before each use, but I can put it on at 6am in the morning and it stays on all day long. I usually don't take it off before 10pm at night. It's the best eyeliner I have ever found and will definitely never use another brand again. Thank you Bare Minerals!!!
Very disappointing - old products were better
I wanted to like this product, but I returned it yesterday. The 7pm rich brown color is amazing - so deep, with hints of bronze, lighter than your average brown liner, perfect! Unfortunately, everything else made me hate this product. It is so mushy. You can't get the line you want. Then, it sticks exactly where you initially put it. This would be great, but not when you have no control or precision when applying. I looked like that photo I've seen of myself when I was 6 years old and applied my mom's makeup in gobs all over my face. Also because of the consistency, you have to sharpen it before each use, which made it seem like a huge waste of money for barely any product. You really have to scrub to get this liner off, and it left my lashline looking red afterwards. I went out on a limb for this product because I love BM, but don't bother!
BM: PLEASE redo your eyeliner product line. KEEP the rich brown/bronze color. It is stunning! But we need a more controlled kohl and a normal pencil. I've tried doing the eyeshadow + primer thing and it's just too complicated. Give me a good, old-fashioned pencil or a regular kohl - reminiscent of your Big & Bright line. The rest is too complicated. I made the conscious decision to buy only BM going forward, but I've had to cheat and go elsewhere for eyeliner. Woo me back!
Not my favorite
I have this in dark purple and black. It's been messy in ways I couldn't have anticipated. I have to agree, I like the big and bright eyeliner much much better. While not waterproof If you used an eye primer it lasted all day. I also liked the finer point and not having to sharpen it.
Not a good value
For $18.00 you only get the pencil tip. Once the tip is gone; its gone. I used it every day and it only lasted me 3 weeks!
This eyeliner is goopy, heavy, and cakey. It does not go on smoothly, no matter how much I contort my eyelids and it breaks off in chunks with even the lightest touch. Forget sharpening it, it costs way too much for me to waste most of it gunking up my pencil sharpener. Loved the Big and Bright eyeliners, they went on smoothly and cleanly and sharpening was not an issue. PLEASE bring back the Big and Bright so that those of us who don't like the Round the Clock have another option.
My Favorite Eyeliner!
The Round the Clock liner works well with combination skin and with cream shadows. I have found that you need to keep it somewhat sharp (the sharpener brand DOES matter--I've had great luck with Bare Minerals sharpeners), creating a thin line and then immediately using your liner brush to smooth and soften the line. Then, use the remaining liner on the brush to line the lower lash line. It creates a much softer look as the colors are all pretty bold and can look heavy if the pencil is used to line lower lashes.
This liner stays in place for me all day--5 am to midnight when I finally take it off. It even survives my workouts, swimming, contact solution, and the occasional romantic-comedy cry! I receive frequent compliments on my eye makeup and a huge part of that is due to this liner!
I had tried the Big & Bright liners in the past, but I can have somewhat-oily lids and wear contacts. It always seemed to smudge and crease under my eyes and on my lid and wore off easily. It was very easy to create a smokey eye with though.
As a former makeup artist, I have had the opportunity to try many types of liners. Definitely give this liner a try. And be patient...application with liners is an art, and practice makes perfect!
