Physician Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Pallette Swatches & Review

Guest Post by Ria is a shoppers paradise for buying cosmetics. One has an option to choose many brands, used/new item and there are many sellers who ships to India, just the check the seller’s rating and the shipping charges is lower for every additional item.
After lip balms I am most mad about eyeshadows. I can spend hours looking at eyeshadows swatches, searching for the perfect palette and then I came across physicians formula Shimmer Strips custom eye enhancing shadow and liner.
These come in four shades- Casual, Nude, Smoky and Fashionista. I got the casual one.

Get the Casual Look for ANY Eye Color!
Hip, designer denim shades create classic Casual Eyes.
Wet & Dry application for two finishes: wet for dramatic, intense color with ultra long-lasting wear. Transforms shadow into a liner. Dry for a softer result.
Hypoallergenic. Fragrance free. Paraben free. Dermatologist approved. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Gluten Free.

Mica, Polybutene, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Synthetic Wax, Silica, Dimethicone, Lauroyl Lysine, Beeswax, Dimethicone/Methicone Copolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Kaolin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol May Contain: Carmine, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Iron Oxides, Manganese Violet, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Ultramarines, Blue 1 Lake, Red 40, Yellow 5 Lake



Create the Casual Eye: 1. Sweep medium shade over lid as base. 2. Apply darkest shade to upper & lower lash line with pointed tip of applicator to line eyes. For added definition, apply darkest shade in the contour of upper eyelid. To intensify color, wet applicator. 3. Use lightest shade to highlight brow bone.

My views-
Each of the Physican Formula Custome Eye palettes have 9 shades and can be used wet as well as dry. The packaging is so cute and the zipper looks so funky. I got the casual palette as it has a mix of bright colours like pink, yellow, blue and nude colours also. Generally you don’t see such a colour mix in one palette and that’s what I like about this the most. These shades can be created to use many wearable looks.
The pigmentation of all the eyeshadows are amazing and are easily blendable. I wear these over a primer and these do not crease on me. These stay on me for good 6 hours after which I notice a little fading. All the shades in this palette is shimmery and hence called shimmer strip. The shades can also be used as a liner.
I have never used the applicator provided with it. Some shades like the brown and blue could have been broader instead of the yellow one.

Pros- of Physician Formula Shimmer Strips Custome Eye Enhancing Eyeshadow Pallette

  • Amazing mix of colours
  • Can be used wet as well as dry

If you want to try out many shades which do not cost a bomb then these PHysician Formula palettes are a great option. All the eyeshadows are pigmented and can be used to create many looks. But if you are in India then buying it from ebay is the only option.

Ooh. Looks so amazing. I think I’m seriously getting over my fear of eye shadows. Will buy a pallet or two soon. Could you please list the seller’s name, would really help. Cruz there re thousands who promise one and deliver another .
