Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - 8 PM
I was told about this product coming out by one of my favorite BE Boutique Reps. So, hence, when it came out I went and bought one.
PROS: I love the long lasting wear without smudging.
CONS: I was disappointed in the texture of the liner. It was too mushy and very difficult to sharpen. And when applying it, it also clumps up on my eyelashes which I have to clean after application.
Not a huge fan... :(
I received this in the mail today and immediately gave it a try. There are two things going for this eyeliner: it's waterproof and it applies easily (albeit a bit clumpy). That's it as far as perks go, I'm afraid. I'm even more saddened to have learned that BE has discontinued their line of "Big & Bold" eyeliner and all the fabulous colors that came with it.
The twist up stick (giving you the most eyeliner for your buck)? Gone! The convenient built-in sharpener on the end? Gone! You have to use a pencil sharpener to sharpen this eyeliner (which I absolutely loathe). The nifty built-in smudge tip? Gone! These very features were exactly what had me coming back for more, more, MORE Big & Bold eyeliner as they're a bit hard to find in drugstore brands (esp. the sharpener & smudge tip). All gone!
I've noticed I'm not the only reviewer who feels this way. It is my sincere hope that BE listens to their customers and brings back the Big & Bold eyeliner collection. If they still want to sell Round the Clock, great, but at least give us the choice!
In a perfect world, BE would sell Big & Bold as it used to be, but in "regular" and "waterproof" formulas. Until then, I'll be buying a drugstore brand that is as close to the Big & Bold (perks) as I can get. Sorry, but this is a step down for me. :(
Not for Sensitive Eyes...
I loved the Big and Bright line, especially because it didn't irritate my eyes. After a day wearing the Round the Clock liner, my eyes were red and watery. It took my eyes hours to calm down after I took it off.
The Round the Clock line is also *very* intense. It goes on like a liquid line and it's not possible to smudge it. Not a good look for me, who prefers subtle makeup but doesn't have time to do shadow liner in the morning. Please bring back Big and Bright! In the meantime, I'll be switching brands to get the look/sensitivity I need.
I am saddened about the loss of the Big and Bright liner. I don't care for this new liner - it's too soft and there is no sharpener...it doesn't keep its shape...please bring the old one back!
Do not buy!
This product is impossible to sharpen. It does not get a sharp tip on it and then melts into a fat unsharpened tip almost immediately. Do not buy!
Recently brought 2 eyeliner pencils. My first obstacle was that it was very tough to remove the plastic wrap on the pencil. It took several minutes. Once the plastic was removed, I was surprised to find that the pencil wasn't retractable and will require sharpening. It's been quite a while (years) since I had to sharpen an eyeliner. Didn't help that the tip immediately fell off of one..glad I had a second, as I had no sharpener handy. I do like the fact that it is waterproof and has a smooth application, but it does go on thick. Tough to control quality of the line definition using a sharpener. My experience is that they don't sharpen well. I've since bought a sharpener, but it is hard to get a nice point on the pencil. Good product, and I am working with it, but I am disappointed. Please make this retractable. It will be a much better product.
Prefer the previous eyeliner
I was excited to try this but one application and I went back to my older one. The point is too "smushy" and goes on too heavy. Can't sharpen it as it is too soft. Go back to the drawing board on this one. Liked the idea but just doesn't work unless you want to look like a band member from KISS.
Let me start off by saying I have been using BE now for appx 3 years. I loved the eyeliner line "Big and Bright." I have extremely sensitive eyes and this eyeliner was the only one that did not make my eyelashes fall out. This new line "Round the Clock" makes my eyes water and itch. This eyeliner also flakes. What was changed in the formula???
I was very upset to find out that the Big and Bright eyeliner was discontinued and the only eyeliner option is WATERPROOF eyeliner - no other choices. Please bring back the twist pen - Big and Bright product line.
This eyeliner is very dissappointing... Like many other reviews have noted, it is impossible to sharpen due to the liner being so soft. I am actually unable to complete lining my eyes with this eyeliner before the pencil needs re-sharpened. The pencil only lasted for about 3 weeks tops.
I am so sad you changed and stopped the Big and Bright Eyeliner, this new waterproof eyeliner does not meet the standards I would expect from BE. I am a huge fan of the Big and Bright midnight BLUE, the new product does not smoothly appy, can not smudge to create a soft and even eyeline, it applies stark and stays stark all day, not a beauty product, looks like a child lined the eyes with waterproof crayon!!!! PLEASE BRING BACK BIG AND BRIGHT......
Great product just disappionted in amount --
The product is great only last a few weeks. Not like the other liners you had that would twist up and give you more. What you see on the tip is all you have. Very disappointed in that and for only 3 dollars less. Makes me rethink the line totally if that is what you are going to be leading to. I have use the products for over 10 years and never have I been more disappointed in an item before. Waste of money
