I’ve gotten a lot of recommendations for Physicians Formula products — but their line is so VAST, I usually just stand in front of their display at CVS/Ulta, bamboozled. Lucky for me, I got the opportunity to swatch their newest Shimmer Strips eyeshadow palettes: the POP! Collection.
Pop! is the fourth collection of Shimmer Strips eyeshadow palettes. You can also buy the original Shimmer Strips, the Smoky Collection, and the Bronze Collection. Each collection includes four different palettes: one for brown eyes, one for hazel eyes, one for blue eyes, and one for green eyes (though of course you can break the rules, you rebel, you).
If you see a Shimmer Strips palette in a drugstore, you may say to yourself, “woah, that’s a lot of colors.” But Physicians Formula has a method to their color collections: each palette is considered three eyeshadow trios (lid, crease, liner… or highlight, lid, liner… or highlight, lid, crease — or just use them as you see fit). The shades can be used as shadow or liner, wet or dry.
I thought the texture and pigmentation were pretty outstanding for around $11. I could see myself buying the blue palette for that last color alone.
