Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Missing the old eyeliners...
This liner is impossible to use unless you put it in the refrigerator for a while beforehand. And come on, that's just silly. I'm not sure why, but this color in particular is really difficult. It is VERY smushy and clumpy, and nearly impossible to use without making a mess. I dearly miss the old eyeliners with the smudge tip. On the upside, the color DOES stay put for a very long time and Noon is a lovely color.
Give it a chance....
Tried this in the store and hated it, but went ahead and bought it because I was completely out of eyeliner and Bare Minerals is all I use. I actually have the 8 pm but it's not listed and I really wanted to write a review with a few tips for those who say they hate it. At first I wondered how I could make this work because it was very creamy and clumpy and stayed right where it went on. But I had to make it work so...I put it in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes before using it. I then applied it and immediately...and I do mean IMMEDIATELY...smudged and smoothed it with a sponge eyeshadow applicator. This worked like a charm and it looks great. The upside is that it does last ALL day and night, and after working with it for a bit, I have found that I love it. Try the fridge tip and blend it as you apply it. After a second look, you may end up loving it! I would have given it 5 stars if it just wasn't so much work. But I don't mind if it's worth it.
Worst eye liner
I loved the old eye liner that had a twist top. This eye liner is terrible and the plum color is too dark it almost looks black. This goes on too dark and too thick. It's not a good liner at all and still doesn't last all day. Wishing they would bring back the old liner.
Bring Back Big & Bright - Please!
Before the holidays I bought a couple kits with this new eyeliner. I cannot express how much I hate it. I am 46 and never wore any eye makeup at all, except mascara, for my whole life, until I discovered BE and enjoyed it so much that I have almost everything. Literally. I really LOVED the Big & Bright eyeliner. It was smooth to apply and blended beautifully. I also loved the little sharpener and the blending tip was essential. I assumed that since BE came up with a new eyeliner it would be even better, but no, it's awful. It goes on HARSH and dries so fast it is impossible to blend. I was horrified when I applied it and tried to blend it with a Q-tip to no avail. It is very hard to work with, difficult to remove, doesn't blend at all, and looks way too harsh for me. The sage Big & Bright was gorgeous on me. I am so sad now. I'm giving these to my boyfriend's teen daughter to play with but I will never buy BE eyeliner again. I have about six of these - such a waste. My eye makeup look was flawless with Big & Bright - it's better to use the loose shadows to line than Round the Clock. If you want a soft look, good luck; it's not going to happen!
I beg to differ with all the poor reviews, I absolutely love this eyeliner!!! It goes on with just the slightest touch and I can get lines that are thin or thick. The older I get the more delicate the skin becomes around my eyes and this dreamy creamy eyeliner goes on with no tugging and in just a single swipe. I hope this eyeliner formula is around for a long long time!
I'm not a fan
I loved the old eyeliners but was looking for something waterproof. I've found that it's very difficult to apply this eyeliner smoothly. For me, it clumps and doesn't leave a nice, smooth line. I also found it really didn't end up lasting the entire day. I don't primp throughout the day and prefer to just do my face and go on with my day. At the end of the day, most of this eyeliner has disappeared. I ended up buying another brand of eyeliner which goes on much easier and seems to last longer. This is the first bare minerals product I've ever been disappointed with.
I have to agree with the majority on this..they have all said it better than I can. This liner was a disappoitment. I used it for a few days and it worked okay (messy and not as easy to apply). But then I had to sharpen it and I haven't been able to use it since. Not sure why the change, but definitely need to bring back the big and bright. It was the best liner I have used in a long time so I was shocked that it was no longer available.
Just love it!
I received this eye pencil as part of a kit and immediately fell in love with it! I have very oily skin and typically my eyeliner ended up smeared all over my lids by the end of the day. This one stays and stays and stays...it lasts longer than the waterproof mascara I've been using! I will agree with the other users that you're sharpening it quite a bit, but that is the only drawback I've found for this product. Glad its now a regular item...will definitely buy again.
I love it!
I've never used the big & bright eyeliner everyone is asking for to be back, but I love this eyeliner! I feel it goes on so smoothly and stays on all day. I don't remove it with makeup remover, just wash my face with the purifying facial cleanser and it comes off. I definitely agree that it is hard to sharpen the liner into a point, until I decided to spend $3 and order the sharpener designed to be used with this liner. Now I get a perfect point and can draw a thin line on my eyes. This liner doesn't last very long though.
Please bring back the Big & Bright eyeliner!
I am dissatisfied with this product for a couple of reasons.
#1: it is impossible to get it to a point when sharpening! Sometimes I like a thick line, but I also want to be able to draw a thin line, which is impossible because it is so soft.
#2: It does not go on smoothly, requiring it to be smudged after application. I wouldn't mind that so much if it didn't dry before I even have time to smudge it! Once it dries it is very difficult to remove, which is frustrating in the morning when I am in a rush.
As a young woman who does not make a lot of money but likes to invest in quality products when it comes to make-up and skin care, I must say that I was not satisfied with this purchase. Bare Escentuals has always offered products that make me look and feel my best, but this eyeliner has done neither of those things for me.
Please bring back the Big & Bright eyeliner!
