Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Disappointed with this Eyeliner
I bought this eyeliner with the hope of wearing it to the pool this summer. The color is great but it is difficult to apply and difficult to remove. Once applied, it is nearly impossible to smudge it into a smooth line. I wore it to my local pool once, and it had run off within 10 minutes. I will not be buying this eyeliner again. :(
Would not purchase again
I have several colors of these since I bought a multi-pack. Pros: They have some very nice colors and excellent pigmentation and do wear a very long time. Cons: The liner is so soft you really can't put on a fine line directly from the pencil, or even a medium thick line. If I spend a lot of time with my eye shadow and then end up with great uneven gobs of eyeliner all over I get mad. To deal with this eyeliner I always use a brush immediately after if I put it on straight from the pencil and many times I will use an angled brush to get the liner off the pencil and apply to the eyelid with the brush, this works the best for me but is more time consuming that I'd like. I also have the old big and bold retractable liners and LOVE and MISS them!!!
Bring back the Big & Bright!
Pros: lasts all day, great plum color
Cons: too soft, goes on WAY too think, can't sharpen the point enough for a better line, breaks easily
i bought this not realizing it was a pencil and not the retractable version. the is great - same as always - but it is way too soft and goes on way too thick. the point won't stay sharp and breaks easily. luckily i found the retractable. i threw this one away after 2 weeks.
Bring back the Big & Bright!!!
I really liked my previous eyeliner Big and Bright that came in a retractable case. Unfortunately it is no longer available. I tried the new product Round The Clock waterproof eyeliner and I find it hard to use. First off you need a sharpener, which may leave pokey edges or if you sharpen too much, the eyeliner falls off and you need to start over, thus shortening the life of the product. I also find the product too creamy to make a smooth line. It clumps on and attaches to the eyelashes. Please bring back the liner in the retractable wand!
Maybe it's that I really liked the old eyeliner, but I can't stand this one! It goes on too thickly no matter how light you try to put it on. I've actually taken to putting a line of dots on my liner line and then blending which helps some, but not enough. As a rule, I don't choose waterproof liners because I find it too difficult to fully remove without just rubbing your eyes raw...not good if you've had eye surgery! Add to this that when you go to sharpen this liner, it is a TOTAL MESS!! It's almost like it's too soft.
I beg of you...BRING BACK the old eyeliner that wasn't waterproof and self sharpened with the twisting roll up mechanism in the container! I LOVED THAT ONE!
Makes your eyes pop
I read all the negative reviews and was hesitant to buy this product but I tried it on in the store & loved the effect. The blue doesn't "look" blue on my eyes but it makes my eyes pop. Doesn't wear off during the day & can wear to the pool without it washing off. Does come off easier in the shower though with a regular face wash so that is a plus to me. The pencil is soft but applies easily & once you get used to it is amazing. I would recommend it. I have it in the blue & black shades now.
Do not recommend
I am very disappointed that Bare Escentuals changed their eyeliner formula. This one is too soft, hard to get a thin line and doesn't have a smudger with it. I liked the old one better! I will have to go to another mineral brand.
One of the best waterproof eyeliners on the market
Bare minerals is hands down the best non budging eyeliner on the market. I believe it receives negative reviews because many people do not know how to apply it. It is soft and requires just a couple of dots or a really fine line close to the eyelashes that can be QUICKLY blended before it sets. It takes practice to use but it is worth the practice. It holds like a dream in the waterline and is non-irritating to my sensitive eyes. I hope that the company keeps this eyeliner in stock forever. I have several colors.
I never write reviews, but this product is so awesome and has received so many negative comments that I had to counter them. I LOVE this- it's so much better than the former eye liner. The former eye liner would be worn off by the time I came home from work. This one is intact all day long and doesn't wear off at all. It comes off super easy with an over the counter eye makeup remover that I have and I didn't have any problems sharpening it with a sharpener that I've had for a million years. Neither of these are from BM. The eye liner is creamy and goes on smoothly.
Overall, for me, the best part is that it lasts all day without any wearing off at all, and it comes off super easy. A much superior product in my opinion in comparison to their former eye liner.
What happened to the Big and Bright eyeliner?
This Round the Clock is terrible, too soft, breaks, doesn't last. Threw it away. I loved the Big and Bright; just dial it up to use it, dial it down to store it. It was great. Of course, now they don't make it any more. I'll just keep looking.
