Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Eyeshadow!


Hey everyone! Meet one of my new favorite eyeshadow products! It's from Physician's Formula- it's the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner. Sorry I got a little crop-happy with the picture above HAHA- but that set is the Smoky Hazel Eyes collection. It is so great!! I know I don't have hazel eyes, mine are brown... but it really doesn't matter. Not only did they sell different "smoky" sets- but also just regular groupings for each eye color.



I'm definitely going to be picking up some other color groupings of these- and I think it's important that just because a certain set is labeled "brown eyes" or "green eyes" doesn't mean those are the only people who can use them. Try whatever you want! There are so many options within each 9-color palette, you can't go wrong. I was initially drawn to the Smoky Hazel set becaues of the pretty deep mauve tones- and the rich charcoal & black colors. It's just a really nice assortment. As far as the texture- they're all pretty shimmery- some more than others- and they feel basically the same as the Shimmer Strips bronzers (which you can totally use as eyeshadow too!)



I've been mixing and matching shades throughout the whole palette, but if you want some more direction- definitely hold on to your packaging. It points out that you can use the top 3 colors in the palette for a natural look, the middle 3 for a playful look- and the bottom 3 for a dramatic look. Some of the darker shades can make good liners (as the name of the product suggests)- and you get an angled sponge-tip applicator, which I haven't used a lot but can be nice for getting into small places.


Head over to your local drugstore, or visit the Physician's Formula website for more details:

It's my sister-in-law Sarah! I used the palette to do her makeup for her graduation. I also used it in my Carrie Underwood tutorial! :D
Have a great day everyone!

  1. This looks so pretty, I will have to check it out on my next shopping trip. And I'm totally with you, just because it says for hazel eyes doesn't mean you can't wear it. I happen to have hazel eyes, but I will for sure check out what other colors they have.

  7. You look so beautiful in that eye shadow. I also noticed how clear your face is. Can you suggest a nice concealer though that could help me hide my acne scars? I couldn't afford to have acne scar reduction so I think a good concealer would do.
