Hey! This blog accompanies a review video on my YouTube channel of the Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips POP eyeshadow palettes! Check out my video for my detailed opinions on each palette. I wanted to put up some pictures so you could really see what the palettes and the swatches look like. I did not use a primer with any of these swatches- it's just the shadow as-is! The concept behind these palettes is that each one is designed for a certain eye color... and the shadows are designed to be worn in sets of 3 (top 3, middle 3, bottom 3). I don't see a real advantage to following either of those rules. Just because a brand directs you to use a certain eye palette because you have blue eyes or brown eyes, etc... doesn't mean it's the best palette. You can wear whatever colors you want & look good! Use your own judgement (and the help of this review) to make your decision :)

POP HAZEL EYES
My favorite palette. The shade on the far left is a MAC Cranberry dupe! Love the variety of colors- they look gorgeous together... and I have brown eyes!
POP GREEN EYES
Beautiful, unique colors for a drugstore palette. They look great on the eyes in any combination you choose. I just wish a darker color was included to provide some contrast.
POP BLUE EYES
Overall- a great blue palette. The darkest navy shade is gorgeous. Some of the brighter blues aren't as bright as they appear in the palette. The neutrals are gorgeous & metallic.
POP BROWN EYES
My least favorite palette. The purple shades don't pop and aren't nearly as intense as they appear in the palette. The dark plum is nice, but worn together, the shade selection (neutrals and non-intense purples) can appear a bit muddy.
