I purchased the Orchid color and am getting the same issues with the color not being at all dark enough to actually wear. Had to go back to my old "go to" eye liner so I could go to work. Very disappointed in this product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by BEST last try for me
I had good results with the Round the Clock eyeliner and was sad to find it discontinued. This product does not glide on well and so I have to push a lot to apply. I was surprised as this is the only product that I ever had problems with from BE.

With my old eyeliner, I was really having to press so hard to get any color, and it took forever to build the look I wanted. This liner is completely the opposite! It is super smooth and goes on really, really easily. This liner lasted over twelve hours with no fading (I used bare minerals eyelid primer). I bought the nonstop navy color, and will say that it is probably a bit darker than I was thinking it would be, but I wasn't bothered by that. Also, it seems that quite a bit of liner gets used when applying, but maybe that's just because I haven't adjusted to pressing less hard yet. I would recommend this to others struggling with their current liner and looking for a smooth, long-lasting liner.

I have always used Clinique's eye liner. It was the only part of my makeup routine that wasn't BE. I bought the Bare Minerals Birthday Kit at Ulta which included the Absolute Black Lasting Line Eyeliner. I can finely say that every piece of make up in my bag is Bare Minerals. This eyeliner goes on smoothly and stays on all day. I constantly rub my eyes and have not had any issues with the eyeliner smudging or disappearing through the day. I also love the built-in sharpener!

After being very disappointed with the Round the Clock eyeliner I am so happy that Bare Minerals listened to their customers and came up with this eyeliner. I love that it is twistable again and that it has the built in sharpener. All of the mess and of the Round the Clock is gone! It's easy to apply, stays put and comes off easily with make up remover. It is everything I want in an eyeliner. Thank you!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by BareMineralsShopper Not a fan...
This is the first product from Bare Minerals that I have been disappointed in. Just as another reviewer said, it showed up well on my hand, but is hardly visible on my eyes. I feel like I have to go over and over to get any color. Please give us another option.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Becca1183 Not a Fan...Bring Back `Round the Clock
I am a huge BE fan...I have loved every product ever purchased. This eyeliner, however, giant fail in my book. Nothing is as good as `Round the Clock. It went on creamy and stayed on from morning til I washed my face before bed. Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner is nothing in comparison. I put it on at 7:30am and it was off by 11am...and I didnt touch my eyes nor were they watery. I hope BE brings back RTC. I only have a little left. I was hoping that I'd be as equally satisfied with this one and not have separation anxiety over an eyeliner! :(
Rated 1 out of 5 by lelou Very disappointed in this product.
I have never used a BM product I didn't like until this eyeliner. I purchased it in the Lasting Brown and while it went on and stayed on just fine, the product continually broke.
I was never able to sharpen it into a point no matter what I tried. Every single time I tried, it broke. I did everything that was recommended to prevent breakage and nothing worked. I ended up using it with a "dull" tip and still had issues with breakage. Probably wasted at least half the product.
I could not be more disappointed in this product and will not purchase again. It is a total waste of $$.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaclyn95 So Happy!
I was disappointed when the Big and Bright Eyeliner was discontinued in favor of the Round the Clock, so I am so happy to have the Lasting Line, which is very similar to the Big and Bright! The Round the Clock irritated my eyes and flaked. Plus not a fan of sharpening. Thanks for the Lasting Line! Now if you would bring back the granite color and add it to the new line, it would be perfect!
Rated 5 out of 5 by mel42 Great product, much better fix!
This eyeliner is a great improvement from the "round the clock" eyeliner. The liner is soft but not as soft as the Round the clock eyeliner. I have very sensitive skin around my eyes and this eyeliner does not bother them at all. I also love that this eyeliner can last from the morning I put it on up to late that evening without the need to touch up. Great product!
It is also great to know that Bare Escentuals is a company that listens closely to their customers! I had receive a wonderful response from the company just for commenting on their products - You have made me a customer for life! Thanks for doing such a wonderful job and thanks for making a product that with such great quality!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Emma24 No sharpening. Primer a must.
I have this liner in Blue and Black. It is OK but not great. The only improvement I can see is the no mess of sharpening like the round the clock liners. It wears off Very quickly unless you use a primer. Then it is just OK. It tugged (the blue one) somewhat my eyelid which I did not like at all. Maybe it was older?? I had hoped for an improvement of the round the clock which issues were the very bad sharpening issues and drying out. But, at least It went on smoothly when new and it wore like iron once set. I probably will not get more of these. They need the round the clock formula in a pot with a liner brush. Just a thought.....
Rated 1 out of 5 by happymom23 I wanted to like it...
I have tried this eyeliner and am very disappointed. I don't feel it glides on anywhere near as nicely as Round the Clock eyeliner and cannot express enough my sadness that Round the Clock is being discontinued. 10 pm eyeliner (very difficult to find, but I've been resourceful) has been my staple for two years.
Rated 2 out of 5 by KristenR Not the Best
I was one of those who loved the Round the Clock eyeliners, and I was extremely disappointed when I heard they were being phased out. But, I love bareMinerals, so I decided to try the new Lasting Line. I prefer to use purple eyeliner, but thus far I have been disappointed with the "Endless Orchid" shade. It shows up great when I try it on my hand, but goes on very faint on my lashline, to the point that it isn't very visible. To get the color I want, I need to press harder, which is rather uncomfortable. I'm hoping that I can figure out a better way to work with the liner so I can get the color I want, but for now, it's difficult to work with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LinW Love this eyeliner
I could not be more pleased with this new eyeliner. Best of all, I was asked to try it for "free" because I was so disappointed in the previous version. The pencil itself is better and does not break off as easily. I love the way it smudges and it lasts all day without smearing. I will definitely try other colors. And thank you for asking me to give my opinion on this one.
Rated 2 out of 5 by FLsunlover Didn't care for this liner
I love BM products but this liner is too difficult to apply. It goes on too light and you have to press too hard to get any color out of this liner.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rock Chick Lasting Line/Absolute Black
Thank you to BE and FAB! I received this liner in the mail.....I must say that this is quite an improvement, compared to Round the Clock for me.. (I was not a fan) This liner glides on easy, blends easily.. I use the BE eyelid primer...and has lasted me up to 12 hours, with maybe one touch up. It even lasted thru the St. Pat's Day parade! But most of all, I have retired my beloved Kajal liners. This liner was also easy to remove for me with a water proof eye make up remover. Love this! Thank You!
Rated 5 out of 5 by FLBeachBlonde Thank you BE!
As a loyal customer, I've been patiently waiting for BE to come out with a twist up liner and as a FAB member, I was sent a sample pencil for free. As a model, I don't have time to worry about sharpening eye pencils in between shots, which makes this pencil perfect for on the go glamour!
Rated 1 out of 5 by 62yearold Bad Sharpener
While i really like the eyeliner, the sharpener is worthless! I have wasted about half of the eyeliner trying to get it sharpened to some what of a point. The pencil is too soft for the type of sharpener it comes with. I read most of the reviews and am surprised no one else has mentioned this. I have tried all things the "experts" have said, including not using any pressure when attempting to sharpen and it does not work. It is probably the first item that has disappointed me in 15+ years of using bare minerals. Please fix this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by hhalford8990 Like this much better than the other stick
This wears well and doesn't take as much eyeliner as the other eyeliner did. It doesn't clump and stays put. I recommend it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rainbowgirl Just Like the Original
Glad to see that the product is back to the original. Love the ability to twist the liner up and down. Great Product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenerator8 Finally, the perfect eyeliner!
I have been looking for a while, well since BE quit making their last version of the twist-up eyeliner. I've tried others and did not like them. So I've been using an alternate product for a while now. As a member of the FAB club, I was sent a sample of this eyeliner. I love it and am totally hooked. It goes on easily and smoothly and doesn't disappear halfway through the day. My eyes still look great in the evening. Thanks BE and FAB! I will use this one for as long as you keep it in your bag of tricks.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Maura Complained about the old wooden liner and...
When I wrote a review of the old wooden barrel Bare Escentuals eyeliner, and complained, they sent me a free Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliner free! I have been a very loyal Bare Escentuals customer, but am now even more loyal. Love this new and improved eyeliner- and no sharp wooden edges that could scratch sensitive eye area. My new favorite.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonny Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliner
I was pleasantly surprised to receive this - and am very pleased. I found the eyeliner easy to apply and love the fact that it doesn't "bleed" - this is an enormous improvement over the type that requires sharpening. I will definitely buy some in other colors and recommend it highly to my friends. Thanks again!
Rated 4 out of 5 by spra Good pencil liner
I'm a huge fan of the liner shadows, but every now and then I grab a pencil when I'm in a hurry or traveling. I received this free for being a FAB member, which was really cool. I had recently purchased Estee Lauder's long-wearing pencil and I think this Bare Minerals one is superior to that as far as lasting long and not smudging. It's a good pencil. I still prefer the liner shadows, and if they made those in cake form it would be awesome. But when you need a pencil, this one is good.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvLakeZ True to its name
This eyeliner is awesome! It glides on easily, easy to blend or leave as a sharp line and it actually stays on for an entire day. My eyes are sensitive to some eye make up and they are not irritated by this eyeliner.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blondie06 Excellent liner
Thank you BE for the free sample! I LOVE being a FAB member & this was definitely a great surprise! This eyeliner goes on so smooth & silky! It doesn't rub off or smear & lasts all day long! I LOVE IT! I think I will wear it during the delivery of our 2nd child, when she comes this month! At least I know I will look good for it! Now I just wish I had it in more variety of colors!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Springchick love this liner!
I got the charcoal and the navy. I love them both! They stay on all day for me as long as I don't use cream within 1/2 hour of applying my make up. More colors please! How about denim blue, teal and emerald green?? I'd get all three.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnieMay66 GREAT IMPROVEMENT!!!!!
First off, THANK YOU BE, for the sample eyeliner. I received it in the mail last weekend. I've only been using the NEW eyeliner for 3-4 days and I already love it!!!! It's stays put, stays on, doesn't smudge, etc. I've tried it lined and I've tried it softened .... I LOVE BOTH LOOKS!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by adugger629 Barely There!
I bought the black, green and purple new eyeliners and was very dissapointed in the green & purple ones. You can barely tell you are wearing eyeliner and it was hardley noticable after 9 hours. The black eyeliner was the only one that worked out well. I wil not be buying any colored eyeliners from bare minerals again.
Rated 3 out of 5 by keegs218 Better than it's predecessor....
So this eyeliner is by far better than the round the clock eyeliner that I despise to pieces .... I like it's shape, the precision tip, and the ease of use over all.
Pros: Goes on smoothly and blends well. The precision tip makes smudge lines or cat eye fairly easy. The blender on the end is GREAT - I love this feature & there is a drugstore brand eyeliner that has this feature but this blender shape on this one makes it 100% better than the cheap store version. Initial color payoff is nice.
Con: Well, after 8 hrs I can't reeeeeally tell I'm wearing it, there is a faint smudge shadow reminiscent of my original line but it's faded... so the long wear claim I can't say is totally accurate. Caveat I DON'T wear eye-lid primer, but I don't wear eye lid primer EVER and have other eyeliners that DO last all day and in to the evening (high end brand liner from boutique)
So while I definitely can say the pros outweigh the con, it still has a bit of the same 'wear off' issue I found in the round the clock liner although not as badly I will say that.
Also full disclosure - I was given this product from BM as a freebie.
