I bought the green and purple packaged shimmer stacks, and I use them as eyeshadow bases for days I want to be a little more bold w/ color. You can use them alone as a cream shadow if you want, you'll just have to build it up in thin layers.
I used the shimmery green one under MAC's Humid e/s a night I went to the club, and it looked fantastic! These are so pigmented and smooth, you'd think you were using a creaseless cream shadow from Benefit. Embarrassed to admit, I came home piss drunk and passed out in bed, full-face of makeup, dress and heels on... [thank goodness for a sweet bf that cares enough to dress my lifeless body in pj's and take my shoes off for me!]
Anyways, the warpaint is something the bf had no idea how to remove, so I was stuck with it till the morning when I woke up to take it off...
BUT when I woke up, my face was IMMACULATE. I know well enough proper application to set my makeup and make it long lasting, but I tend to burrow when I sleep, and I go face first into the pillows. I expected my shadow to be faded at least on the side of my face that I rested on my pillow... but NOPE! I looked like I had just finished getting ready to go clubbing in broad daylight. [it was so weird...]
It did not crease, it did not fade, it did not budge. This stuff is awesome. My only gripe is that theyre in plastic containers [glass please!], but I do like how they all connect. I bought these to add to my makeup kit, and I don't think it will ever go without this product.
Will definitely purchase more if Physician's Formula keeps it up like this!
wow this stuff is AWESOME. i have never tried a gel eyeliner, only liquids and this is crazy good. it's so easy to work with and you get a great look out of it. the color shows up great and i've had it on for 8 hours and it hasn't even tried to move or run. this is a huuuge plus since i've been using kohl liner recently and i found myself playing with my eyes half the day to not look sick. haha this stuff is awesome i can't wait to buy more colors. i have the one for green eyes and the shades you get are perfect to make your eyes pop. i'm wearing the purple right now and it's sooo cute. love it, definitely worth being my HG!
I seen reviews on youtube..love me some gel liners, and was excited over this product, cute packaging and got 3 shades. I hated this stuff!! Was too almost smooth/runny..no matter what tool i used, just wouldnt give me that clean straight look i wanted. I love my wet n wild liner and its way cheaper!!
These are AMAZING!! I have the one for Green eyes and the one for hazel eyes and I really love them both. I wore them all day without any flaking or smudging. I am going to be picking up the one for blue eyes soon because I like them so much! I love the stackable containers that they come in to. These really are a bang for the buck. A+
For a drugstore brand, this is a great gel eyeliner. This stuff does not fade or rub off at allllll! I think it is almost or as good as Stila smudgepots. They are really cheap if u go to CVS and get them on sale and sometimes they have a coupon right on the package for $2 off I think.... AND u get 3 colors instead of one.
It's good that: the price comes out to less than $9 if u get it on sale, theres 3 colors, theres just enough of each color to use for a long time before it dries up ( I hate when brands sell huge pots of eyeliner for like $15-$20 because they will dry up by the time u r only 2/3 or less thru). Smaller for cheaper is better ( multiple colors is a bonus) ... and its just as god as the expensive brands!
I was excited to use this product. I'm a big fan of gel/cream liners and since I first used them, found them easier to apply than liquid. They also stay better in my water line (nearly indestructible when set with eye shadow) and are more pigmented. If the PF eyeliner was the first I had ever used, I may have been put off. This stuff dries TOO quickly, causing errors in my application. Yes, I've warmed it on my hand; it still becomes hard mid-stroke, yielding a "hot" chunky look. Boo.
My Wet 'N Wild and Maybelline Studio gel liners blow this one out of the water, both are creamy and longlasting. The only edge PF has over these two gems is the cuteass packaging. Not enough for this MUAer.
I picked up the "Brown Eyes" and "Blue Eyes" today at Ulta and immediately swatched them on the back of my hand.
Initial reaction: The gel is very soft and pliable. It felt smooth and creamy on my brush, and applied well. There was no dragging or skipping or that dreaded colour pitting, where the shade is dark on the sides and light in the center. I'd say they're comparable or even better than MAC in this department.
The shades are very opaque and pigmented. The pots are smaller - perhaps half the size - than MAC's fluidlines. This doesn't really bother me, since I'm paying ~$10 for 3 shades instead of ~$15 for 1. Furthermore, I don't think I'll hit the pan, so to speak, on these shades before they begin to dry out. So no loss. :)
I haven't tried the L'Oreal HIP or WnW [gel] liners, but I have tried the Maybelline Eye Studio gel liners and wasn't impressed with pigmentation. However, I'd definitely recommend these! Great pigmentation, pretty good price (better if you can find coupons - Ulta nearly ALWAYS has a $3.50 off coupon on their site and CVS occasionally has PF cash-back offers) and smooth application.
I have this in brown eyes and I love it! Been using this for two days already. So far it's the only thing that doesn't fade on my lids. Even Stila's smudge pot in bronze fades on me (applied under UDPP)! I initially thought the brown was not as brown as I wish. But I found out I was putting very little on my brush, thus it looked quite sheer. Now I know how much to use. haha
This is on my #1 for now. I still want to try other brown liners. I haven't used the black one. I've tried the purple one and I'm saving it for parties because I'm not used to colorful liners.
Packaging is cute but it's plastic. Might dry the product- but I hope not.
Could it be that I have found a gel eyeliner that is as good as my beloved Mac Fluidline???? YES!
PF Gel Creamliner comes 3 cubes in a set. You buy the set that matches your eye color. My eyes are brown so I got the one for blue eyes. (Call me a rebel if you wish),
Blue eyes has a Black with flecks of blue glitter.(the glitter does not stray anywhere in or around your eyes,. Brown with a really nice glow finish, and a gorgeous med/deep blue.
The cute little cubes stack together or you can take them apart and they are adorable. You also get a liner brush. Which I don't use. It reminds me more of a lip brush. SSGC pots are smaller than the Fluid line pots, but 11 bucks for three colors that's awesome!
Okay now comparison to Fluidline
PF; creamy application, easy to apply, Fluidline not as creamy PF wins on application. Also smudges out great for a long lasting shadow.
Next; Staying Power PF and Mac It's a tie folks! They last as long as I want with no Fading.
Final test; will it dry out in the container? I've had it PF for over two months and it's like new!
So PF SS Cream gel eyeliner beats the Mac FL except for one thing; Mac is animal friendly PF not so much.
So if you haven't tried these what are you waiting for?. Target has all the colors as well as CVS.
I just bought the set for Green Eyes (check out my review under that category if you like). The colors are stunning! PF has the biggest selection of colors, especially if you include they're new GLAM collection which I also picked up and will be reviewing next.
If you have used BB,MAC,Loreal Hip. Give these a try, you won't regret it. If you do, you have my permission to yell at me but ya won't ; )
When someone asks me what a good drugstore cream liner is, I'll always direct them to this line from now on. The others just cannot compare. I can think of maybe three brands in the drugstore that have attempted gel or cream eyeliners anyway. While P.F. cosmetics are almost always over $10, the liner works and the packaging is quite good. I am looking forward to buying the glam collection liners, which are more metallic and flashy.
They've always made good products that are also interesting. There have been some hit or miss in the past, but in the last year or two the brand has been creative and stepped it up.
