I bought this in 8pm Black Coffee. The good: is stays put all day, especially on the water line. The color is solid and does not fade. The bad: there is literally no time to smudge or wing it when you apply. If you want to wing it, you have to sharpen it to an itty bitty point, and this pencil is so soft you end up sharpening it down to a nub in no time. If you try to apply an extra layer, you end up ruining the first layer - it ends up flaking off. So if you're an eyeliner expert and can put it on in one sweep exactly the way you want it, then this pencil is for you. If you want your bottom water line to stay put, then this is for you. If you like to wing it and tweak it and smudge it, don't bother. It will make you cry.
When I tried them out in the store, I was impressed. I am not the typical BM customer, but I always like to try to have less parabens in my make up collection. At first, these eyeliners applied really pigmented to my eyelids and waterline. After the first time I sharpened, I noticed that I could not get the color to show up. The pencil was so soft that it kept breaking off during application.
I ended up wasting a lot of product, and these pencils were on the pricier side. Eventually, I just became frustrated for the extra time spent and the subpar results. I went to DS L'Oreal eyeliner and never looked back.
Overall, probably the worst eyeliners I have used. I got a holiday gift set of 3 eyeliners for around $15. I tried to give them away, but no one wanted to use these. Eventually, I just TRASHED them.
These are some of my favorite liners. They are gorgeous and very creamy and easy to apply. I do not have flaking or fallout and never have any issues with them. The colors are intense and stay on.
I love that I can use them right on the waterline above and below and not worry about all the chemicals. These are very pigmented liners & my favorites are 4pm and 11pm.
Bought this in the soft black shade. One lippie is for beautiful color, very intense dark and matte chocolate-black. Second lippie is for remarkably easy application.
What I do not want from my eyeliner is colour coming off in flakes when I touch my eye.
I had applied it without any primer or eye cream. Very disappointed.
This smeared really bad on a humid day. Can't do it again....
Not a fan! It worked great the first use but after that, the eyeliner fell out so i sharpened it and it just kept falling out. Now im left with a stump after 2 weeks of use. I dont recommend this to anyone!
I so like the shade (4 PM) - it matches the frames of my glasses so well!
The eyeliner is soft and so easy to use even for a clumsy person with bumpy eyelids and zero makeup artist talent like myself.
I'm using it over Bare Minerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer, stays on all day. After reading the reviews here I'm a little worried what will happen when the time to sharpen the eyeliner comes... but the shade is so perfect for me that I would repurchase even if I did experience troubles during sharpening.
I love this eyeliner. This would not budge when I put this on my eye lid or water line! I have never found any other eye liner that stayed on my water line. Plus the color selection is great. Maybe a few problems with sharpening but it doesn't bother me too much.
I am sort of on the fence with these eyeliners. I received one (3AM) in a kit, I think it was the Love Pastels kit that came out late spring or early summer. This pencil was smooth to apply and wore like a charm so I went and purchased some more colors, I have 6-7 total and have found that not all of them apply and wear as well as the others. I love the ones that do apply well but some of them are waxy and tug on my eyelids when applying. All in all I like the product but will not repurchase the waxy ones. Also, I have not experienced any issue with sharpening. I use an UD Grindhouse sharpener and have no issue with the pencils after sharpening.
I started using the Round the Clock 11 p.m. dark charcoal eyeliner a couple weeks ago, and I'm already in love. Several people have noted issues with sharpening this pencil, but I have not run into that problem at all. I use a MAC pencil sharpener that I've had for about 7 years now. A couple quick, short cranks and the pencil comes out smooth and looking just like when I bought it. I'm guessing the quality/type of sharpener is making the difference here.
--- glides on easily & smoothly
--- lasts all day (7 a.m. to midnight for me) & does not smear
--- easier & faster to use for me than using an angled brush & Fluidline by MAC, my previous favorite
--- pencil seems kind of short overall for the price
--- I seem to be going through it kind of quickly, which might make Fluidline more economical
