Do you ever come across a great product, but then never end up using it?
That seems to be my experience with the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner from Physicians Formula (what a name, right?)
After seeing so many great reviews of the eyeliners, I was excited to get a chance to try them out when I could finally get my hands on them a few months ago. I immediately swatched, tested their wear, and decided they were wonderful. How many times have I actually used this product since I bought it nearly 4 months ago? Once. It's a great product, but I just never reach for it.
I picked up the set intended for brown eyes. Right now you can order it online on Ulta for $8.00 instead of the usual $10.99. I bought mine at CVS for about $10.
I really like the packaging, especially how it snaps together or apart.
It reminds me a little bit of legos.
Usually, brushes that come with cosmetics are pretty sub-par. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the brush that came with this set.
Natural light. I was impressed by the pigmentation and smoothness of the liners. Soo creamy! After I let it set for a minute or two, I tried vigorously rubbing my finger across the liners. They didn't budge.
With flash to show the sparkles better.
I was definitely impressed by this product, yet haven't been using it as much as I thought I would. I've used the black once, and the others have only been swatched. I tend to use my mineral eyeshadows as liners, and never think to grab one of these. I've been using a lot of dark blue liner lately- my go-to look these days is a neutral look with the Drama Blue liner from Aromaleigh. If you're looking for some nice gel/cream liners for a good price, I definitely recommend these. I definitely don't regret buying them, I just need to make myself use them more!
