Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner - null
No sharpening. Primer a must.
I have this liner in Blue and Black. It is OK but not great. The only improvement I can see is the no mess of sharpening like the round the clock liners. It wears off Very quickly unless you use a primer. Then it is just OK. It tugged (the blue one) somewhat my eyelid which I did not like at all. Maybe it was older?? I had hoped for an improvement of the round the clock which issues were the very bad sharpening issues and drying out. But, at least It went on smoothly when new and it wore like iron once set. I probably will not get more of these. They need the round the clock formula in a pot with a liner brush. Just a thought.....
I wanted to like it...
I have tried this eyeliner and am very disappointed. I don't feel it glides on anywhere near as nicely as Round the Clock eyeliner and cannot express enough my sadness that Round the Clock is being discontinued. 10 pm eyeliner (very difficult to find, but I've been resourceful) has been my staple for two years.
Not the Best
I was one of those who loved the Round the Clock eyeliners, and I was extremely disappointed when I heard they were being phased out. But, I love bareMinerals, so I decided to try the new Lasting Line. I prefer to use purple eyeliner, but thus far I have been disappointed with the "Endless Orchid" shade. It shows up great when I try it on my hand, but goes on very faint on my lashline, to the point that it isn't very visible. To get the color I want, I need to press harder, which is rather uncomfortable. I'm hoping that I can figure out a better way to work with the liner so I can get the color I want, but for now, it's difficult to work with.
Love this eyeliner
I could not be more pleased with this new eyeliner. Best of all, I was asked to try it for "free" because I was so disappointed in the previous version. The pencil itself is better and does not break off as easily. I love the way it smudges and it lasts all day without smearing. I will definitely try other colors. And thank you for asking me to give my opinion on this one.
Didn't care for this liner
I love BM products but this liner is too difficult to apply. It goes on too light and you have to press too hard to get any color out of this liner.
Lasting Line/Absolute Black
Thank you to BE and FAB! I received this liner in the mail.....I must say that this is quite an improvement, compared to Round the Clock for me.. (I was not a fan) This liner glides on easy, blends easily.. I use the BE eyelid primer...and has lasted me up to 12 hours, with maybe one touch up. It even lasted thru the St. Pat's Day parade! But most of all, I have retired my beloved Kajal liners. This liner was also easy to remove for me with a water proof eye make up remover. Love this! Thank You!
Thank you BE!
As a loyal customer, I've been patiently waiting for BE to come out with a twist up liner and as a FAB member, I was sent a sample pencil for free. As a model, I don't have time to worry about sharpening eye pencils in between shots, which makes this pencil perfect for on the go glamour!
While i really like the eyeliner, the sharpener is worthless! I have wasted about half of the eyeliner trying to get it sharpened to some what of a point. The pencil is too soft for the type of sharpener it comes with. I read most of the reviews and am surprised no one else has mentioned this. I have tried all things the "experts" have said, including not using any pressure when attempting to sharpen and it does not work. It is probably the first item that has disappointed me in 15+ years of using bare minerals. Please fix this.
Like this much better than the other stick
This wears well and doesn't take as much eyeliner as the other eyeliner did. It doesn't clump and stays put. I recommend it.
Just Like the Original
Glad to see that the product is back to the original. Love the ability to twist the liner up and down. Great Product.
Finally, the perfect eyeliner!
I have been looking for a while, well since BE quit making their last version of the twist-up eyeliner. I've tried others and did not like them. So I've been using an alternate product for a while now. As a member of the FAB club, I was sent a sample of this eyeliner. I love it and am totally hooked. It goes on easily and smoothly and doesn't disappear halfway through the day. My eyes still look great in the evening. Thanks BE and FAB! I will use this one for as long as you keep it in your bag of tricks.
Complained about the old wooden liner and...
When I wrote a review of the old wooden barrel Bare Escentuals eyeliner, and complained, they sent me a free Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliner free! I have been a very loyal Bare Escentuals customer, but am now even more loyal. Love this new and improved eyeliner- and no sharp wooden edges that could scratch sensitive eye area. My new favorite.
Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliner
I was pleasantly surprised to receive this - and am very pleased. I found the eyeliner easy to apply and love the fact that it doesn't "bleed" - this is an enormous improvement over the type that requires sharpening. I will definitely buy some in other colors and recommend it highly to my friends. Thanks again!
Good pencil liner
I'm a huge fan of the liner shadows, but every now and then I grab a pencil when I'm in a hurry or traveling. I received this free for being a FAB member, which was really cool. I had recently purchased Estee Lauder's long-wearing pencil and I think this Bare Minerals one is superior to that as far as lasting long and not smudging. It's a good pencil. I still prefer the liner shadows, and if they made those in cake form it would be awesome. But when you need a pencil, this one is good.
True to its name
This eyeliner is awesome! It glides on easily, easy to blend or leave as a sharp line and it actually stays on for an entire day. My eyes are sensitive to some eye make up and they are not irritated by this eyeliner.
Thank you BE for the free sample! I LOVE being a FAB member & this was definitely a great surprise! This eyeliner goes on so smooth & silky! It doesn't rub off or smear & lasts all day long! I LOVE IT! I think I will wear it during the delivery of our 2nd child, when she comes this month! At least I know I will look good for it! Now I just wish I had it in more variety of colors!
love this liner!
I got the charcoal and the navy. I love them both! They stay on all day for me as long as I don't use cream within 1/2 hour of applying my make up. More colors please! How about denim blue, teal and emerald green?? I'd get all three.
First off, THANK YOU BE, for the sample eyeliner. I received it in the mail last weekend. I've only been using the NEW eyeliner for 3-4 days and I already love it!!!! It's stays put, stays on, doesn't smudge, etc. I've tried it lined and I've tried it softened .... I LOVE BOTH LOOKS!!!
I bought the black, green and purple new eyeliners and was very dissapointed in the green & purple ones. You can barely tell you are wearing eyeliner and it was hardley noticable after 9 hours. The black eyeliner was the only one that worked out well. I wil not be buying any colored eyeliners from bare minerals again.
Better than it's predecessor....
So this eyeliner is by far better than the round the clock eyeliner that I despise to pieces .... I like it's shape, the precision tip, and the ease of use over all.
Pros: Goes on smoothly and blends well. The precision tip makes smudge lines or cat eye fairly easy. The blender on the end is GREAT - I love this feature & there is a drugstore brand eyeliner that has this feature but this blender shape on this one makes it 100% better than the cheap store version. Initial color payoff is nice.
Con: Well, after 8 hrs I can't reeeeeally tell I'm wearing it, there is a faint smudge shadow reminiscent of my original line but it's faded... so the long wear claim I can't say is totally accurate. Caveat I DON'T wear eye-lid primer, but I don't wear eye lid primer EVER and have other eyeliners that DO last all day and in to the evening (high end brand liner from boutique)
So while I definitely can say the pros outweigh the con, it still has a bit of the same 'wear off' issue I found in the round the clock liner although not as badly I will say that.
Also full disclosure - I was given this product from BM as a freebie.
Lasting line eyeliner
I received this free as a Fab member. I had quit using BM eyeliner because the gel liner was si hard to work with and garish. Thank you for listening and reformulating it. Works great and I have ordered the gray which I wear most of the time.
Thank You for the free sample for being a FAB member! Love how smooth it goes on and doesn't smudge my favorite eye liner so far!
This is a smooth eyeliner!
I received this eyeliner in the mail for free to try it because I am a FAB member... This is a great eyeliner. It is smooth and it does not smear. I was disappointed at the previous eyeliner line, the water-proof one, because the eyeliners were not smooth at all! But the new Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliners are very different. They are perfect!! I highly recommend them!!!
THE best eyeliner!
I don't write reviews, like ever, so you know this product is good! This eyeliner rocks my world! I have tried SO many eyeliners in search of the perfect one that won't fall off my eyes. I even tried the previous eyeliner BE used to have and it was horrible. This one however, is absolutely fantastic and I would recommend it to everyone. I am always having to push my eyeliner back up so I don't look ridiculous all day. With this eyeliner I don't have to touch it, it stays perfect all day! Great job BE, I am impressed!
I find the Lasting Line eyeliner does not go on as smoothly as the Round the Clock eyeliner.
Thanks BareMinerals for sending the Lasting Line as a sample for being a FAB member, finally a liner that adheres to my lower inner rim of the eye, I have tried SO MANY that don't even tell I touched the inner rim. NOTHING has worked like this one!! Cannot wait to order other colors.
Got this Free
Nice surprise, got a free full sized sample in the mail to try out. Wearing it today, love it. Went on smooth with a fine line along the lashes. Looks good after 4 hours, no fading. I am looking at more colors.
No shapening required!
The around the clock pencil that needed sharpening was not my fav. The pigment while deep was too soft and you needed a brush to get a clean line. This is very similar to their old eyeliner that was discontinued. This one doesn't need sharpening and it gives you better control. The black is nice and deep. I’m glad they brought it back!
Not as good...
I guess this is the replacement for the midnight waterproof version that was discontinued. It does not go on as dark. I need to wear something over it to try to get it as dark as I like it.
This is best of both worlds-wears like waterproof
I am so pleased...it wears almost like waterproof, yet removes easily with my regular make-up remover, or simply cleanser and water. It goes on smoothly-one coat is great for casual everyday wear, and for evening or special occasions, I simply apply a second coat. I've noticed that some of the other reviewers have trouble with the way it wears. I do use primer, which may be the difference. I don't typically apply liner to my inner lower lid, but when I do I use the powdered shadow with the angled soft focus liner brush.
Lasting Liner is the best liner I've used to date. In a hurry? Primer, liner and mascara-done!
I think the formula is fabulous, and a great addition to a great collection of skin care and make-up. Thanks for always helping me look my best.
