Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner - null
I have used the big and bright eyeliner for years. This new product packaging is too difficult to open/remove and there is no way to advance the color beyond what is already showing! I will be looking for another brand
I usually use a liquid eyeliner, but I had this eyeliner from a kit that I got and gave it a shot. I just love the color. It stays on great, even on my inner rim! I did buy the BE sharpener (it's so reasonably priced) and have no problems sharpening this liner. I am not sure why people say it's messy or hard to sharpen. I find it easier and cleaner than most pencils. I do wish it didn't need to be sharpened every use, but I prefer that to having a liner that is so hard that you have to struggle to apply it. I find that using a lighter touch and holding the liner at an angle keeps it pointy a bit longer. I can't wait to get a few more colors!
Great for the inner rims!
This is the only eyeliner that lasts on my inner rims. The colors are very pigmented.
I have tried almost every possible eye liner out there in an attempt to find one that actually stays in place all day. I have found it! :) I put it on in the morning, and at midnight when I go to wash my make up off it is still where it should be around my eyes.
A couple of things to be aware of...
You only have a short moment to smudge it after you put it on because it sets very quickly - so this can become an issue if you don't get it the way you want it on the first try.
I read in another review that you really need to use the BE eye liner sharpener so I ordered that with the eye liner. I am very happy I did. I have had no problems sharpening the eye liner. (and the sharpener is very cheap so it is worth it)
I greatly recommend this.
I do not like the new Round the Clock waterproof eyeliner. It is difficult to apply, even with a brush. I have used the Big and Bright eyeliner for years and loved it, but this new one is very hard to apply and darker (I used Plum) than the other product. I can't get the fine line that I used to either. I also do not like that it needs to be sharpened daily instead of just twisted up. I use Bare Escentuals for all of my makeup, but I will be looking for a new choice for eyeliner.
I have very dry eyes and am constantly using eyedrops, which is a huge issue with eyeliner. I hadn't ever found one that I felt was worth the money and had staying power, BE has done it. I agree with many that it is quite soft, but if you go lighter on the hand application, use their sharpener (which is only a few dollars!), or use a liner brush (it really works even if this is a stick pencil), it's amazing!!! I would really like to see a color that is more bronzy/gold/brown, but am quite happy with 7PM.
I Love This Liner
I have most of the colors of this liner, and I love them all. My eyes tear all day due to alergies. This liner stays on. I have to keep touching up my eyeshadow but not the liner. I think they are wonderful and I love the colors. They are also easy to travel with.
does last if you get it on properly
I have all the colors of these liners. I like the colors except the plum color- it needs a little more purple in the color. These are more eggplant in color. These pencils, once they are on, stay on all day. The big problem is the softness of the product. It IS difficult to sharpen. You need a good sharpener and I actually freeze them and then sharpen them. This helps. But, if you are looking for a fine point for lining- these will not work. You cannot sharpen it to a point without wasting lots of product . Its just too soft and too big. I think they need to be in a pot for using a liner brush. I think it would work great that way with out wasting the liner product in sharpening.
Barely any in the "tube"
I don't know if I am missing something but there is NO WAY to turn this to get more to come out. It last me one week before what little bit was in there ran out. It says to sharpen before use. If I'd have done this there wouldn't have been ANY left to use.
Wanted to Love it
I really did want to love this eyeliner. The first two uses, it was fantastic! It went on easily, came off when I wanted, and was just the right shade. My problem is that the sharpening is so difficult. I've read that the BE sharpener is the only one that works with it and that's silly. I don't want to have to buy a new sharpener just to use an eyeliner. It didn't even sharpen well after freezing, because the product itself doesn't freeze. I just really wish it was twist-up, as the product is great. I just wish I could get more than two uses out of it.
