Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner - null
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.
Not the same as it used to be!
This is my second eyeliner purchased after I ran out of my first one. I am going to have to find a different brand altogether because this one BARELY goes on my eyes/waterline. How disappointing! I'm not sure if BE changed their formula for eyeliner, but it's not what it was in the past.
I got this product for Christmas in the Macy's package where there was a variety of BE products and I have always had a love for eyeliner. As an asian, it's hard to find good makeup looks because we hardly have a crease (unless you're Michelle Phan and make your own but who has time for that?). But, with eyeliner, it's the best way to make an eye-opening look. Ive tried every kind of eyeliner-- pencil, crayon, gel, liquid, and marker. My favorite BY FAR was the marker-type applicator because it is so easy to apply, but I have ran out and I couldn't find it ANYWHERE. So, I decided to try this one out and IT WAS AMAZING. All of my gel, crayon, and pencil eyeliners always transferred to my lower lash line (props to asian eyes), but this one never does it! I always test throughout the day just to make sure nothing has transferred, and it's never there. So GO BE!!
All-Time Favorite!! Precise & Perfect!!
I too am surprised by the negative reviews. This liner is spectacular! I have been on a mission to find the perfect liner that is easy to use and this is it! I am always in a rush and don't have time to search for a pencil-sharpener and with this I don't have to search. It is there if I need it, but half the time I don't even need it. The automatic nature of the pencil allows me to elevate it where I need it. It is precise. I can put it right along my lashes and even in-between my lashes w/ ease. I love the smudger on the end too...Easy, Easy, Easy...looks great all day! I have all the colors from the sets. LOVE!
My favorite eye liner
Wow, I'm really surprised at all the other bad reviews. I LOVE this product. Because it has a sharpener, I took it on my two week honeymoon and didn't even end up needing to use the sharpener (I don't do a very fine line). The black stays on all day, doesn't smudge, doesn't give me raccoon eyes. I bought the black again once it ran out and bought it in the dark brown as well. GREAT PRODUCT!!!!!
Don't waste your money!!!
In the past they HAD an awesome 24 hour eyeliner that would glide on easly and stayed on forever. I never had "Racoon eyes" by the end of the day. I was addicted to it.
Now I can't find them anywhere anymore except for this new garbage. It won't even glid onto my inner or outer eyelid!!
I agree with you all, it's very disappointing! :(
Not for me... :(
I am a FAB member and was sent a sample pencil for free a while back. (Thank you!) :) I love BE products but have had problems finding an eye liner that stays in place, and hoped this would be the solution. Unfortunately this one did not stay on nearly as well as the previous eye liner pencil BE had available. :(
My one and only BE disappointment
I have used almost exclusively Bare Minerals for probably 20 years or close to it. In my entire life I have never been able to wear eyeliner because I have deep set eyes and it always ends up on upper eye. Then you came out with Around the Clock and I was told it WILL stay on. In disbelief, I tried it and it was fantastic! Never before was I able to wear eyeliner for the whole day until I removed it at night but I finally could and was thrilled. Then you discontinued it. By the reviews I can see many many of us were more than disappointed.
I saw people mentioned it being soft or hard to sharpen but I keep mine in the fridge and it was the perfect solution. LL comes off in a very short time and ends up on my upper eyelid. I'm not sure what the benefit was for you to discontinue ATC but I can't imagine what would be so difficult about having an option for us. Please please bring ATC (midnight) back. Love BE except for this product.
I like the twist up, but the don't last long enough.
I love BE & have been using their makeup & skincare for 10+ years. I loved the Around the Clock pencils. Some of the colors were softer than others, so I had to learn how to apply them more carefully, but they lasted ALL DAY.
I was hoping this was a twist up version of the Around the Clock pencils, but they do not last nearly as long. I still use them as they are serviceable, and I've used up most of my Around the Clock stock. But, I WISH the pencils were still available. It would be great if BE would bring back the Around the Clock pencils as an alternative.
