Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
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.
Useless, pricy eyeliner pencil
Broke time and time again. I was disappointed and only got to use it twice before it broke completely off. I was sooooo disappointed with the performance or non performance of this product.
round the clock waterproof eyeliner
I love everything be but I'm not a fan of round the clock eyeliner, I loved the colors and the fact its waterproof, but when you have to sharpen it , its a mess. you never get a sharp point on it like when it was new and you waste so much of it trying to get a sharp point. and if you happen to get it on your hands when your sharpening it, it even more of a mess. I never used big and bright, but from what others are saying on the reviews, it sounds better. sorry to say, but eyeliner is the only makeup on my face that isn't bare essentials. maybe you should rethink it, listen to your loyal customers please !!
Love the color and texture, but there are flaws
This color is gorgeous! It's a nice, smoky green that leans toward brown. It's subtle, but really makes my green eyes pop. The silky texture glides on easily in a nice, fine line. My only issue is that half way through doing my eyes for the FIRST time, the whole tip of the liner broke off. I couldn't find a pencil sharpener so I had to use scissors to cut back the wood. Once more of the liner was exposed, I was able to use a liner brush to finish my eyes. It worked out fine, but going back to the old twist up, easy to sharpen with the built in sharpener would really be an improvement.
Not near as good as the Big and Bright
I have been a loyal Bare Minerals customer for years and really love all of your products but I am not a fan of the Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner. I like many others was disappointed you quit making the Big and Bright Eyeliner, but I decided I would try this eyeliner. Not a fan. While it definitely has staying power and I have to use eye makeup remover for sure to remove at the end of each day, it is way too thick. Even after I sharpen it, it is too thick. I just bought the eyeliner within in the last 2 months and I have almost burned through the eyeliner. I use way more with this than with the Big and Bright as lasted me more than a couple of months. Please bring back the Big and Bright Eyeliner or a combo of the 2 products would be great. Something with the staying power of Round the Clock but the preciseness of the Big and Bright!
