Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner - null
Purchased this eyeliner because my Around The Clock midnight color was very low and was really disappointed with this product. It does not go on as dark and well as the midnight pencil did before. I have been searching all over for the pencil eyeliner and have not been able to find it (I guess it's discontinued). I switched to a different brand that work okay but not as well as the midnight pencil. I really hope they bring the pencil back! Until then I'll take my eyeliner purchases elsewhere.
I have bought this liner in several colors. The colors I received in sets like I <3 the Nightlife and Afternoon Delight were so chalky and dry and practically translucent. I have 4 other colors in this set which are great. They go on creamy and smooth. These are: Absolute Black, Forever Brandy, Always Charcoal, and Lasting Brown.
I use only BE products. Until now. Now I use another brand for eyeliner. Horrible,HORRIBLE product. I will never use this eyeliner again.
Loved the old liner and always had compliments! Now the navy is dull and can't get that smooth creamy line like before. I am a die hard BE user and for the first time in years, having to look elsewhere for a liner like BE used to have! I miss Noon, seriously!
I really love how easy it is to apply and it is perfect for everyday. It is soft and smudges well, so it allows for a more subtle look, which is what I always go for. It does take a few passovers to bring the color out, but that gives me control over how dark I want my line. I have it in many colors, but my favorite is the copper color. It's a very pretty shade with just a bit of sparkle. All the other colors are great too, though!
I received a Round the Clock sample in the mail awhile back and had been using it religiously. I would get tons of compliments, even from strangers, on how black it stayed on my tear line and how long it lasted. Naturally, I was disappointed to see it that it has appeared to be discontinued. I order the Lasting Line thinking it would be similar and received it in the mail yesterday. Tried it out this morning and am so disappointed. I just double checked the color to make sure I ordered it correctly because it comes out more grey than black, and doesn't stick to my inner eye. The only redeeming feature is the "smudge brush" at the end. I am a loyal Bare Escentuals user and will now be forced to shop for eyeliner somewhere else. I would NOT recommend this to a friend.
Bring back Round the Clock formula!
I love the old formula eyeliner Round the Clock, which for my super sensitive eyes, didn't give me a headache or itchy eyes. This formula however burns my eyes all day and gave me terrible headache! Couldn't wait to wash it off. I tried different colors, exchanged them thinking maybe I got a bad one, but nope. Very disappointed! Please make an eyeliner safe for us sensitive girls!
This is the best eyeliner I've ever used. I've always had problems with eyeliner printing and rubbing off or smudging but this stays put - even through a gym workout!
Much better than Round the Clock
I'm really surprised at the negative reviews, but I guess you're either an LL person or an RTC person. I was disappointed when B&B was discontinued and had no choice but to use RTC. I had more trouble with that product, not just with sharpening it (and I even put it in the fridge), but it was just TOO easy to put on. I had no control over it because it glided so easily that I ended up smearing it. And I ended up with raccoon eyes, even using the eyelid primer. I have no problems with the LL, and even tho' I wish they'd still kept the B&B, the LL is a good replacement. It goes on very easily for me. Maybe it was a bad batch for people having trouble putting it on. Anyway, even unsharpened, the liner works for me because I always smudge the line. I like that I can sharpen it if I need a really thin line. I don't have any problems with the LL fading or smearing, but I should mention that I always use the eyelid primer. Both liner and shadow last all day and beyond with the primer as a base. All I can say is that I'm very happy with the LL.
I have worn BE for years and been very satisfied. I recently purchased the charcoal Lasting Line eyeliner, and it is neither lasting, nor can I get any kind of line. The product is so hard that it hurts my eyelids when I try to line my eyes. It takes so much tugging and I can't get a decent line, even when it's sharpened. Much too hard! And, sadly, it smears. I won't be buying it again or recommending it to others.
