Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Liner - Product Review

Wow... that was a long title!:) I was shopping at Target, and I came across this cute little trio of gel liners from this brand called Physicians Formula.
Price: $10
The package looks like this:

Before I get started with what I am going to say, this is what the product description on the website says:

  • Three custom shades provide a glamorous look to define and enhance your eye color.
  • Unique gel cream formula glides-on effortlessly and smoothly while providing the definition of a liquid eyeliner.
  • Long-wearing, water-resistant and smudge-resistant formula provides 24-Hour definition.
  • Includes Pro-Eyeliner Brush for effortless and precise application.
  • Stackable eyeliner pots can be pulled apart for individual use on-the-go.
These points are all true! The liners go on very easily and have great pigmentation (color)! They last all day, they do not smug, and they are water resistant... just like the description says! The brush that it comes with works... Its not the best, but it will definitely work if you don't have anything else to use! And the fact that they come in a cute stackable, colorful packaging, is very VERY convenient as well as very cute. ;)

It comes in four different "sets" based on your specific eye color. They have one for green eyes, brown eyes, hazel eyes and blue eyes. Each set has three colors: a "natural" color, a "playful" color and a "dramatic" color. The "natural" color is usually the same as  your eye color (green eyes = green "natural" color, brown eyes = brown "natural" color). And the dramatic color is solid black with a certain color of tiny sparkles in it. This is what the brown eyes set looks like, with the three different colors:

I first bought the green eyes set for me, because I needed more eyeliners, and these were only $10 for three different colors!! So, a week later I went back to buy a set for my makeup kit (when I do other people's makeup) because I LOVE THEM! I use them every day! They are so fun, and so pretty. The amount of product in each of the containers is perfect! They will DEFINITELY last you a while, and there isn't too much, which is good because a problem that can come up with gel liners is that they dry up before you can finish up using all of the product! (Which can be frustrating and a waste of money... and no one likes that!)
This is the set for green eyes:

This is the brown eyes and green eyes set... shows you how cute the little "stackable" packaging is!:)

Set for brown eyes:

Set for green eyes:

SUMMARY: GO get YOU some of THIS! I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEE these eyeliners, and would recommend them to EVERYONE, even if you aren't very into makeup because they are so fun, portable, cute and you get several options; they are a great thing to add to your makeup collection!
