Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Worst eyeliner ever - ZERO Hearts!~
I can't beleive I am saying this about a bareMinerals product, but this one is SOOOOO bad, that I feel compelled to review it. This product was part of a collection I ordered around the holidays and from the moment I opened the package, the product was unusable. Would not transfer product or color to my skin. Rolled in little balls of product that fell into my eyes as I tried to apply it (I wear contacts so NOT good). I tried sharpening the pencil and all the eyeliner came out. Horrible. I don't understand how others have such glowing reviews. Maybe it is one particular color or shipment of product that was defective?
love the actual liner, hate the need to sharpen. i picked up one of these in one of the kits before they were released separately and was so disappointed about 1) the need to sharpen and 2) the fact that sharpening can be an annoyingly difficult process. i have a sharpener with 3 different sizes and no matter which one i used i could never get a good point. i would love if they came out with a version like the bright eyeliner with the twist "sharpener."
Love them all, but...
I love these new eye liners! They go on so smoothly and stay on until you take them off. I have really sensitive eyes and they don't bother me a bit. I'd give them 5 stars except for the fact they don't sharpen well. Every time it comes time to sharpen, the point is so soft, it just falls apart. Please Leslie, make a built in sharpener for this wonderful product that keeps the point as sharp as it was on day one!
Miss the Old
I was excited to try this new eyeliner, but was very disappointed. The eyeliner is hard to sharpen and is very cakey. I defintely miss the old eyeliner, it was so much easier to use and the application was flawless.
Good product but
It seems bringing out this new product was not completely thought out. The tip does not last especially if you don't realize it needs to be sharpened and no sharpener is provided. You definitely need to provide a sharpener specifically for this eyeliner as "regular" ones only dull the tip and make the pencil useless. If you use the eyeliner and are careful to preserve the tip as long as possible it is really good, smooth, you don't need any pressure, stays in place, no smudging or fading. Please, please develop a sharpener for this eyeliner, I want to try more colors!
bring back the old
please bring back the big and bright eyeliner. I am very dissapointed with the new waterproof liner. Too bold and irritates the eyes. Can't sharpen the pencils because they are too soft. I loved the retractable liner and the plum made my eyes really stand out. I am sad to say i will be buying a differnt brand liner. I have used Bare minerals for several years now and love the other products.
Nearly all of my makeup and skin care products are BE products and I've never written a bad review. I loved the retractable eyeliners that have been replaced by a poor excuse of a BE product. It's much thicker so it has to be sharpened too often; I'm convinced more of the actual liner ends up as shavings in the trash than actually lines my eyes. The tip breaks and smudges constantly because it is so soft. My daughter managed to stain our sink with the smudgy shavings this morning--that is how messy it is! Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed in BE for considering this product to be acceptable and wish they still sold the retractable eyeliner that we loved so much. I hold BE to a higher standard than this and I expect to apply an eyeliner quickly and easily without the risk of having smudged fingers and a stained sink counter. This eyeliner is currently in the trash and I will not purchase another BE eyeliner unless it is drastically different from the current liners.
Could be better
When I got this liner I expected it to be similiar to the one they had previously, but this was not the case. It is a very creamy and smooth formula and it does go on very nicely, BUT, it goes on way too thick and I can't get it to thin out and it ends up looking like I applied it really heavy. It would be good if I was going out at night but I am using it on a daily basis for work, and it's really too much for the day time.
Round the clock . . .
This eye liner is a bit different then the older versions of eye liners from BM. This one is softer and more creamy. It does stay on around the clock, which I love! Apply in the morning and it is there all day until I decide to take it off.
I recently purchased one of the new Round the Clock eyeliners in Noon and was surprised to find myself very disappointed in the product. I buy almost all of my makeup exclusively from Bare Minerals and have been nothing but happy with the products. I learned that Bare Minerals discontinued the Big and Bright eyeliner line and had replaced it when I went to buy a refill. I was hesitant to buy the product but thought I'd give it a try. I found the Round the Clock difficult to apply, it creates a very thick line. It also seemed to get stuck in my eyelashes. Since it does not have a self sharpener, I found myself needing to resharpen after only a couple uses. Like other reviews on here, it was difficult to sharpen and a lot of the product was wasted. This product is unlikely to last very long. The plus side of the product is that the color is nice and it is most definitely water and smudge proof. If this product was in the self sharpening applicator, I would give it a 5 and would buy it in a second.
