Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Liner Review


I absolutely love these gel liners by Physicians Formula. I originally purchased them after seeing several of my friends rave about them (though it took me months to find them!). I purchased the Blue Eyes set, which has a Blue Liner, Brown Liner and Black with Blue Glitter liner.

Like the Maybelline Gel liners, what you see in the container is the color you get. You only need to swipe the color once to get a really solid line. The liner will last all day and night, as it claims.

These are my favorite drugstore liners for several reasons. You get 3 liners for $10.99. They’re easy to clean off of my brushes as well as my eyes. Dr. Bronners will easily cleanse them off of my eyeliner brushes. My Nyx eye and lip makeup remover will easily remove them from my eyes. The colors are supposed to flatter blue eyes. My eyes are blue-green, and I REALLY love how the black liner with the blue glitter looks. I’ve been wearing it almost exclusively since I got it. It’s a nice true black and the blue sparks add a bit of sparkle without being over the top. The blue liner is really wearable and is dark without being a harsh or stark line. The brown is ok, but I don’t really wear brown much.

Overall, I LOVE these liners. I will purchase them again. I do wish I could purchase just the black shade on its own, or with other similar shades with different colored sparkles in it.

    • Jessica

      I'm going to be looking for these. Riteaid, Walgreens, Walmart? Please tell me they had a green eye set.

      I have been looking for these for a while. I can't find them anywhere! I guess I'll have to keep looking.

      http://emilysmakeupbox.blogspot.com/2010/03/physi… They do have a green eyes set! I love these liners. The brush they come with works pretty well, too.

    • Phyrra

      Aww, it took me months to find them :( They weren't selling them anywhere down here for a long time.

    • Phyrra

      They have Blue, Green, Brown, Hazel sets. I could only find them at CVS, not walmart, walgreens, target or kmart.

    • Phyrra

      It took me months to find them here in FL! I finally found them at CVS. They didn't carry them at Walgreens, Walmart, Target or Kmart.

    • Phyrra

      I still prefer my Sonia Kashuk bent eyeliner brush with gels, but I like the colors :)

    • Jo`

      I can't find these anywhere! They look so great though…I really want all the sets :P

      I'm hoping that I'll be able to find these when I'm in a state that actually has CVS this summer. I wish other stores would carry them.

      Those eyeliners are pretty great…and yeah, as far as I can tell, only CVS carries them. They work very well as a base under eyeshadow…but all the blacks come with blue the blue glitter (I have a different set, but the black is the same.) You should check out the purple and green…they are fabulous.

    • Phyrra

      Check at CVS!

    • Phyrra

      I can't figure out why other stores don't. This is their 'where to buy' list: http://www.physiciansformula.com/en-us/staticpage

      I think the black shades are supposed to have different colors of glitter in them. I believe Nymphette or Nouveau Cheap swatched them and they were all different, and all very pretty!

    • Silhouettex

      Love that blue :D and the sparkles in the black one

    • Emily

      I have that brush and don't use it nearly enough – I should try it!

    • Phyrra

      OMG yes! It's my favorite for lining, with Medusa's eyeliner brush 2nd.

    • Phyrra

      Yay thanks!
