I have got a GREAT drugstore find for you today, readers. As part of their “Shimmer Strips” collection,Â Physicians Formula makes these little cream eyeliner towers. Each eye color gets a trio of shades (for $10.95) — though, as always, you’re free to break the rules when picking your favorite.
The formula is very creamy, but once it set, the liner wore really nicely. (The box claims 24-hour wear — I didn’t test it for quite that long.)
Amusingly, the box also designates the first shade in each set the “natural” shade; the second is “playful”; the third is “dramatic. I tried on the blue shade, and for face-to-face conversation, it felt really bright. Â Maybe I just applied too heavy a line, but I felt self-conscious and ended up putting brown over it.
You can also separate the blocks in your tower (for travel?), but the jars aren’t individually labeled.
Blue Eyes gets shades in sapphire, bronze, and blue with blue sparkles. Green Eyes gets a mossy yellow green, a blue violet, and a black with green sparkles. Hazel Eyes gets a cool brown taupe, orchid (pink-purple), and black with orchid sparkles. Brown Eyes gets a cool brown, a royal purple, and black with blue-purple sparkles.
I’m not sure I could pick a favorite; I kind of like each group. Â Something to keep in mind for the next Physicians Formula BOGO?
