Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner - null
Another Great Powder Lost
Oh no! Yet another wonderful powder product has bitten the dust only to be replaced by a less effective pencil. The powder eyeliner was great but the eyeliner pencil leaves much to be desired. Powder is subtle but long lasting while the pencil is barely noticeable and doesn't last. Bring back the powder and don't mess with proven success!
Thank you, Bare Minerals, for listening to us!
As a lover of the Big and Brights, I was very upset when I found out they had been discontinued. I was lucky to live an hour from an outlet and stocked up and, thankfully, still have some!!! I tried the Round the Clocks and HATED them. Because of medications for an illness, I don't have a steady hand and the Round the Clocks are so unforgiving... And they aren't meant to smudge... I have some in my vanity with the plastic still on them that I can't give away. I don't personally know anyone who likes them. When I received this black Lasting Line in the mail to try, I stared at it on my vanity for a week or so. It is hard to part from the Big and Brights that I love. But I have three Lasting Lines now and purposely waited a few months to give it an honest review. I can say I do still prefer the Big and Brights, but I feel that this eye liner is more of an in between (very close to the B&B) the B&B and the RTCs. These seem to be softer and creamier than the B&B, but still has the smudger and comes with the sharpener built in. These smudgers are softer and shaped differently, having the point makes them easier to use. I have the Absolute Black, Always Charcoal and Lasting Brown. I, now, won't cry when my B&Bs run out and change to another brand for eyeliner because I seriously was going to before when I used and only had the option of the Round The Clocks. Those are some of the poorest reviewed products on the site and I am SOOO happy Bare Minerals listened to us. Please, in the future, if it isn't broken, don't fix it!!! If you want to introduce a product and try new things, please don't discontinue a popular and highly rated product until you KNOW you have come up with something better because WE have told you it is better. And why must you only offer one type of eyeliner and several types of mascara? Why can't we have the B&B AND the Lasting Lines???
Best eyeliner ever!
I simply don't understand the few reviewers that say the color does not show up. One quick swipe across the eyelid and my eyeliner is absolutely opaque and does not need any going over at all. Plus it's on until I remove it with BE eye makeup remover. Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner glides on smoothly for a dark, non-smear, tight or bold line.
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.
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!!
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.
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! :(
