Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
I was very disappointed with this product. It crumbles when you try and put it on, there is nothing to smooth it out and there is no sharpener. Previous pencils were great, but won't buy any of these any longer.
Found a Great Tip for Ease of Use!
When I first began using this eyeliner, I was so disappointed. Though I loved the color and how well it wore once applied, I couldn't get the "perfect" line that I was used to getting with BE's previous eyeliner. I found that I had to sharpen the pencil constantly, and still couldn't get a finer point. Plus, I went through one pencil of the product in less than a month, which was crazy, because I could use the previous liner for 3-4 months before needing a new one. I decided to give it one more shot, thinking maybe I got a "bad" batch or something. When speaking with a boutique representative, she said that I was not alone at all in my concerns about this product. She suggested using one of the following brushes for application of the product: Double-Ended Liner Shadow Brush, Precision Eyeliner Brush, or the Soft Focus Liner Brush. Simply dab the brush on the liner to get the product on the brush, and then apply the liner. I cannot tell you how wonderful this has been now!! The liner now lasts a long time because it doesn't have to be constantly sharpened, and it goes on SO MUCH EASIER and SMOOTHER!!! For those of you thinking about ditching it, PLEASE try this "trick." I know you might have to purchase a new brush, but it is so worth it! Due to this one, simple suggestion from the gal at the boutique, I will now continue to stick with it. I love BE, and want to have my entire beauty regimine be only BE!
Eyeliner disappointing/Bring back old ones!
This waterproof pencil eyeliner is a lot of work without the great results! Constantly sharpening, hard to get a sharp point for a smooth, thin line. Seems like so much of the pencil is wasted on the constant sharpening. Goes on too thick! If you get it in your eyes it does burn. You should have the other option of the thin plastic eyeliners that don't have to be sharpened for those of us that hate the wooden pencils and prefer a thinner pencil. Won't be buying these anymore:(
I purchased this eyeliner in 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. The product itself is okay once it's applied. The eyeliner is extremely soft and the pencil is difficult to sharpen. I never feel like I can get a nice smooth line. If this product were packaged in a different way - for example - as a self-sharpening pencil, I think it would receive better reviews. I love EVERY other product I have tried from Bare Escentuals. This, however, is not Bare Escentuals' best product. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone simply because it's so hard to apply. I just gave up and threw the two pencils I have in the garbage. :-(
Would not buy again
Working on television I need an eyeliner that will stay on all day in any condition. Also, I try to buy products with little to no harsh chemicals. I was excited to try this liner since it was waterproof and smudgeproof.
The liner does hold up extremely well against smudging or disappearing all together but the line is too thick. The pencil looks like a retractable but, alas it needs to be sharpened CONSTANTLY. The liner itself is very soft and I find myself sharpening it every other day. DO NOT BUY this product. Complete waste of money.
Love this eyeliner! By Far my FAVORITE!!!
I normally do not write reviews, but recently purchased this along with some eye shadows and mascara. I have tried every eye liner there is and was a little hesitate to buy this one because it was a pencil and normally they are very hard to apply. This eyeliner, glides on so smooth like butter and gives a one swoop perfect line. I love it on the top lid as my every day and the bottom for when I am going out. I was very shocked at the negative reviews this was getting and had to comment and place a review on this, because I absolutely love it and have also had a friend of mine try it and she is sold on it too. It never has smeared or come off during the day and the pigmentation is amazing, stays true to the color. Anyways, love this product and needed to share.
Bring back the old eyeliner pencils!
Purchased in 2 colors: pros-nice colors .... cons: too soft to make a thin line, difficult to put on, irritated eyes....they will be returned. Since you've discontinued the old eyeliner pencil and this one is a flop [in my opinion]....back to powder or another brand :(
I won't buy it again
I was very disappointed with this eyeliner. I am so displeased with this product that I'm writing a review and I don't think I've every taken the time to write a review for anything. The lead is so soft that it is almost impossible to get a straight, smooth line. It smudges so easily and then just a few hours later it ends up all over my lashes and underneath my eyes. I have an old Bare Escentuals eyeliner that is a twist dispenser instead and it is awesome. I wish I could still buy that one.
Bottom line, if you're thinking of buying this product, don't. It's not worth it.
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!!!
