Review Overview

Round The Clock Waterproof Eyeliner holds up so well against water and hours of wear that you can literally rock it around the clock—just don't forget to take it off before bed because sleeping in your makeup can lead to puffy, irritated eyes in the morning!

Although this pencil does require sharpening—which is time consuming and wastes product—it performs so well we're making an exception to our general rule and rating this better than average. The smooth, creamy color glides on for bold definition around the eyes, and whether applied in a clean line or smudged for a smokey eye effect, the color won't travel or fade once it sets.

Pros:
  • Impressively long-wearing formula doesn't smudge or fade.
  • Bold, creamy color.
  • Smooth application doesn't skip.
  • Available in neutral and eye color–enhancing earth tones.
Cons:
  • Needs sharpening.

Brand Overview

Bare Escentuals At-a-Glance

Makeup is what this San Francisco-based cosmetics line is primarily about, and they use the pure and natural marketing angle to entice consumers. Founded in 1976 by Diane Ranger, who left the company in the early '90s Bare Escentuals was one of the first brands to introduce the concept of loose powder foundation. Since then, they have moved beyond it to include liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers and an ever expanding line of color cosmetics as well as skincare products.

The products are sold in most Sephora boutiques and Ulta stores, though the full selection of skincare products is most often found at the Bare Escentuals freestanding stores scattered throughout the United States.

We should note that loose powder makeup does take some practice to get the hang of—yet there is no denying that this type of foundation has its fan base. There is a lot to love about Bare Escentuals, even if mineral makeup isn’t your thing (especially their price ranges, which have remained affordable in comparison to many of their neighbors at Sephora).

Strengths: Good makeup removers; a few well-formulated powders with SPF; some nice eyeshadows and impressive mascaras; some impressive foundations; several elegant brush options; not too expensive.

Weaknesses: Some of the loose powder products have texture and finish concerns; some of the skincare contain potentially problematic ingredients.

Love!

I adore this eyeliner. It goes on smoothly with barely any pressure, smudges nicely and stays in place. Although, in general, bareMinerals products can be a little expensive, I love the products and this is one of my all time favorites. I've been trying a couple of other brands (Smashbox has a new self sharpening one and a friend gave me a Mary Kay one) and neither can compare to this one.

Very long lasting.

Paula's right...the results are very good. Only negative is having to sharpen it (really should come with its own sharpener as it doesn't sharpen easily with a drugstore model which wastes a great product!). Will absolutely not budge, even with very watery eyes and does not transfer!
