After trying so many eyeliners that didn't work,I read a review about the Shimmer Strips, and I went out to Ulta and bought them that day. I bought the set made for brown eyes. I use all three colors, and they work well together. This the first gel liner I've purchased that has worked.It goes on creamy,blends very well,doesn't smudge or rub off, It stays on all day. I am very happy with product,and when I run out, I will definitely buy it again!
Really didn't care for these, even though they get raves review her and on YT. I thought the pigmentation was lacking when used as a liner. I needed to line my eyes 2 or 3 times to build up the color. Although I didn't have a great experience, I would try them again for eyeshadow bases as I didn't previously use them for that purpose.
I purchased this trio for wanting a good drugstore gel liner for everyday use, and I found this gem. It is not waterproof but definitely water resistant. After it has set on my upper lash line, it doesn't smudge and give me raccoon eyes. I am reviewing on the brown color, which I use the most. The black and purple are decent colors but don't receive as much love as the brown, which applies on smoothly and quite dark. The applicator brush that the concealer comes with isn't too bad. I like using it overall but tend to use a different brush to get a more precise wing. The concealer is just as creamy as when I opened the product four months ago. It's great, and when you can get Physician's Formula on sale (I got the trio for $6), it's extremely affordable.
I think this is the best DS gel liner, so many colors to choose from and they're just as creamy as the day I got them over a year ago. I can use it on my bare oily lids and it still looks perfect at the end of the day, no smudging, fading, or transfer. I once wore the black shade to a summer music festival in Florida and when I checked my makeup well after midnight everything was melted away but my liner looked great!
I usually do a cat eye with these liners but they also work well as shadow bases or blended out for a super quick smokey eye. They last 4-5 hours on my waterline which was a surprise, usually liner on my waterline is gone within the hour. They are a bit pricey for DS makeup but they're completely worth it imo. Definitely HG.
I've tried half a dozen different cream/gel liners, and these by far are the best. My lids are hooded and oily, but with a dab of Lorac's Behind the Scenes eye primer, this liner goes on smoothly and stays on ALL. DAY. LONG. It's amazing. There is a tiny bit of shimmer in the black, but it's very slight and hardly noticeable. The brown is nice and subtle but too light for me, and I don't use the purple at all because it is NMS, so I wish PF would offer them for individual sale.
I tried WnW cream liner, and it made my eyes water like crazy, and PF didn't have that effect at all so maybe I can say that PF's is hypoallergenic? At any rate, it is smooth, creamy, easy to apply (I use SK's bent eyeliner brush), long-lasting, and the tiny pot really lasts a long time. And the pot wasn't dried out when I opened it like other brands I've tried (WnW, e.l.f.).
Overall, my HG of eyeliners!
I have used Maybelline, MAC and WnW so far, with each of them having an annoying quality that prevents me from repurchasing. What attracted this to me is the cute containers that stack up, I was thinking the little black one could go into my makeup bag when i needed to touch up my Blacktrack cat-eye winged flick (yes it rubs off, and yes its irritating) so I purchased this trio at CVS for 70%, which came out to a buck and a quarter for each container. WOW and wow,
This stuff stays on better. I dont have oily lids, but i do touch my face and eyes a lot. This is way more durable than MAC blacktrack for sure.
i love all three colors. The purple seemed to be not pigmented enough, but going over it twice really makes it pop and it does darken up, im in love with it. The brown is smooth and creamy while the black dominates my world. It washes off easily, which is a weird but very important prerequisite for repurchase.
It washes off easily, unlike the Maybelline and WnW. I would have never bought another color than black, but here I am enjoying a pop of purple or a nice subdued brown cat eye so I dont scare the people at the grocery store.
warning: i have found a similar product that gives this a run for its money...NYX gel liner & smudger, which i just bought today and find these two products so similar! the brown is between the Charlotte (brown) and the Scarlette (dark brown). But they do not have purple, which is really a lovely deep plum color once its on.
I am regretting not buying the Green eyes while I was there. at three bucks...i lost out big time! continued >>
I just bought this on clearence and im praying it wontbe discontinued because it is the best creamliner ive tried. Unfortunately my brown was dried out cuz some ass must have opened it and didnt close it all the way, but for 3 bucks it is still totally worth it. I think this would look good with any eyecolor because i have blue eyes.
It goes on so smooth which surprised me a little because PF is so hit or miss. their pencils are also awesome by the way. This is also the first applicator theyve had that actually works. They are notorious for cheap, painful, useless brushes.
I havent had trouble with bleeding or smeering yet either!
I know they have other trios and i cant wait til they go on sale.
Absolutely 100% LOVE this product. I decided to try it because I swear by Physician's Formula powders and such, so I wanted to give their eye makeup products a try. It's amazing, it glides on so smoothly and it's very pigmented. I don't use it with the brush it comes with - I find it too thick. I use an angled liner brush and it comes out perfectly every time. Would definitely repurchase.
This is a great product! It makes me wonder why I spent so much money on pencil liners since these go on easier and look great all day. The purple one (although it is a little bit brown for my taste- still pretty) lasts me through an entire work day, workout, and shower. It comes right off with a makeup remover pad. Two thumbs up for these, and I only wish I'd found them sooner.
These are very very looooong wearing and the colors are great (although for brown eyes I actually think the color pots for the "hazel" eyes makes the brown eyes pop more. :)
I also use the lavender one as a eye color base when using a pretty purple or lavender eye shawdow.
Only complaint-these can dry out FAST if you accidently leave any of the tops off so do not forget to screw them back together and put the caps on, because mine got dryed up too fast sadly.
