NEW Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner
Whew.. that’s a mouthful. So I heard about this new gel liner at the same time as my L’oreal Hip Liner decided to dry out on me. I can’t be upset with it, it has given me many, many perfect lines. I wasn’t planning to change liners but decided to try something new. It was also BOGO 50% off at CVS so I thought I would give it a whirl. I believe they were $10.95 each. I decided to pick up the set for blue eyes and green eyes (yes I am aware my eyes are brown… thanks). I happened to like the liner colors better in these sets. They are supposed to last 24 hours and are waterproof. It is also hypoallergenic, dermatalogist approved, fragrance free and paraben free in other words it should be okay for us contact wearers. It also comes with a brush although I generally toss brushes that come with makeup out.
Each set comes with 3 coordinating colors of gel eyeliner. This is an awesome concept since I always want multiple colors but I don’t want to purchase full sized liners. Prestige lines like Stila and Smashbox will occasionally release sets like this but I don’t recall any drugstore lines doing this. They are also stackable which honestly doesn’t sway me for or against the product.
I will probably not use the brush for the purpose it was intended for but I think I might use it as a lip brush. It’s not horrible but it definitely doesn’t beat out my Ecotools Angled Eyeliner Brush.
Purples and blues are hard to capture accurately on camera so I tried to take a couple different shots. The first shot is with flash and the second one is without flash. The blue cap is the set for blue eyes and the green cap is for green eyes. The same black eyeliner is in all 4 of the sets available. The blue set has a medium brown and a deep navy blue in it. The green set has a green (think grass green) and a blue toned bright purple in it.
Black in both sets
