I LOVE THESE SO MUCH. I have "Brown Eye Candy" but I've bought other shades before. The pigmentation is amazing and the colors look gorgeous. They are all shimmery but that's the point! They wear like the high end brands. My favorite colors are the top light one (highlight color) and the two darkest brown colors which I don't use as an eyeliner but as an eye shadow. They are great for a quick smokey look. LOVE THIS STUFF. It's kinda pricey for a drugstore brand but worth it, I would repurchase!

I have the one for brown eyes, with has a combo of shimmery nudes/champagne, mauves/purples, bronze/browns. My eyes are actually hazel (I got this as a gift, I wouldn't have picked it out myself). The three shades of shimmery nudes are absolutely goregous on me. I've never found shadow in these colours that goes on so smoothly, and it lasts all day. It's good quality eyeshadow. The mauves are too light for me, but I love the darker purple. I can use the lightest bronze, but brown doesn't look good on me. I use the sponge included, I love that it has a long handle, or I use a brush when using the darker shades. So basically, I would love to rebuy just the nude stripes, since these are HG for me, I wear them alone or to highlight other shadows, but I won't repurchase this because I don't need the mauves and brown.

I love these shimmer strips, I have many of the colors and i love, and I feel these are really nice palettes and they are really good for sensitive eyes, I have used these wet and dry, and I have used also the eyeliner, and the mascara, I have used the powder, the color corrector i have a lot of physicians formula items and i really love them I love these shimmer strips, i feel they brighten the eye, they are easy to use, and even the utensil that comes with them that thing works pretty good with them, even though i have tons of makeup brushes, I like the product and I feel they give good pigementation, as long as you use a primer and that is the case mostly with all eyeshadows, and these are usually made out of non comedogenic ingredients physicians formula is used on the set of GOSSIP GIRL if its good enough to be used on the set of a very popular program its good enough for the rest of society, and it doesnt cause my eyes to tear or hurt, where my eyes are very sensitive to certain ingredients, the ingredients of physicians formula products are usually made in italy and also natural, and made to be healthy and safe for the skin, eyes, etc. And i really like the brand most of the products are biodegradable and good for the planet, I appreciate like this that work and are also thoughtful about your skin not being agrivated or end up with irritating eyes, or irritated any of that. Its a good brand and i do love the shimmer strips, i love a lot of products from this brand.

I have the regular hazel and hazel for smokey looks, the regular brown and the new one in nude. I love the concept, you can walk In the store not knowing anything about makeup and still come out looking great! The shadows are soft and blendable and you have a lot of options. I dont mind the case being a lil hard to open it just means it wont pop open in your bag. The applicator is a bit hard to use for shadow but makes a decent liner brush. I would have liked a seperator between the colors but its not that big of deal. I would reccomend to anyone who is starting out and anyone who wants to add some fun shimmer to their look. :-)

I bought the 'Eye candy' set for brown eyes (which came with a trio of twist-up pencil eyeliners) , and was hesitant at first because I usually don't like neutrals. Well, this surely changed my mind! Everything is very shimmery, which is great for me because I love shimmer. All of the shades are pigmented.
Cons of this palette is that the shadows do crease, but if you have a good primer, they would most likely not crease as much. The packaging is okay, and is a bit hard to open at times. But, I'm not a packaging person, so I don't mind. Also, it is quite expensive for a drugstore palette. I would try to get the deals where you can get the palette + either a trio of gel or pencil eyeliners.
Overall, I would buy again, because these shadows are really pretty and I look forward to trying more of the shimmer strips palettes.

i got this on clearance for about 7 bucks. i bought the blue eyes 'eye candy' which also came with 3 eyeliners, which is one of the reasons i bought it. i have to say, the colors are gorgeous. they are the most beautiful shades of blue i have ever seen. i dont wear a whole lot of blue shadow, because contrary to what i read, i don't believe blue shadow brings out blue eyes as well as, say bronze shadow. but i think they look awesome on me!! there's every shade you could possibly want from electric blue to a light sea-foam-y blue that is great for highlighting. there is also one dark pink color that i think looks awesome with my eye color. the eyeliner is my favorite part, but i find if if i wet the darker blue colors they make great eyeliners as well. overall, i am excited to try all the different looks i can create with this palette and liners. i say i you can pick it up for cheap, give it a try. it would look beautiful with any eye color or skin tone!

Meh, I found this product to be okay. Its really hard to open and the colors are right together and are pretty narrow so I find it hard to get just one color. I expected a bit better for the price, because it is a bit pricy for the drugstore. The colors are good, they do have good pigmentation, but I just never really reached for it. There are much cheaper eyeshadows with great quality at the drugstore that I prefer. I wouldn't repurchase this.

i think the packaging for this product is WAY too bulky, i think they just add all of that extra plastic too make it look like your getting more product, i don't have a clue, but i hate it ! I also hate the sponge it comes with, cause it's super hard too put on the shadow with it, but the colors are beautiful, i have the ones for blue & brown eyes, they have a few neutrals, then some darker ones, then dramatic, i think it's a great pallete for doing day too night looks, i also think the colors pretty much go great on the eyes, no matter what color they are.
great product, will buy again.

I have the palette for blue eyes, and it is my go-to product for every day eye looks. It adds just enough shimmer to my eyes without looking overly glittery. My boyfriend doesn't like a lot of makeup, but I find whenever I wear this, he compliments how bright and blue my eyes look, so I guess the product does what it says :) I always have this with me in my purse, because it's so compact. And since it has some nice darker colors in it as well, I can easily take my look from day to night while I'm on the go.
The packaging is just so convenient. I love everything about this product, and will definitely be repurchasing when I (finally) run out. I've had mine about a year and have yet to hit pan in any of the colors, even though I wear it at least 3-4 days a week.

Love love love my Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner in Hazel Eyes! I like how fine the powder eyeshadow is, and the colours match my dark brown eyes well. Cramming little strips of colours in slightly varying finishes & shades is BRILLIANT, cos then you can blend to get whatever you want from the palette. Love that it's not overly-glittery, that'll be suicide cos I have typically puffy Asian eyes & also oily lids. Highly-recommended, well after all, it's only at US$9.90 (or thereabouts)! Only issue is staying power, I have oily lids and it is very humid in SG, so it doesn't stay for more than 4-5hours. Need to blot blot blot.

Cheap price because I got it on sale at Winners (a Marshall's-type store), and I wanted a nice, pretty summery palette for my brown eyes. This palette had all of the pretty colours I was looking for, so I tried it out. They're not too pigmented and have a harder time staying on the lid, so I use it over creme eyeshadow and it blends into it really nicely. I've also tried adding a little water like the packaging suggests, but it didn't make a big difference for me.
Makes a really good, natural smoky eye and I like that they sectioned it off into trios.
Cons: The strips are actually pretty small, so I'm a little worried about how long the palette will last. I also ditched the sponge applicator almost immediately,
I'd definitely repurchase when this one runs out.

I got this in the one for Brown Eyes...I LOVE this combo!! It really makes my brown eyes pop for sure! The pigmentation is not as good as NYX (my fav) or MAC, however, this is still good. I also love the Hazel colors too! The only issue I have is its hard to pop open. I literally have to use my tweezers to pop open the containers..takes forever and I really don't want to break a nail!! LOL It does cost a bit for being a drugstore brand, but they are wonderful beautiful colors.

I love this product! I bought the green eyes one and the colours are ingredibly pigmented and look amazing with or without primer. I also love how compact it is even though it has so many beautiful colours. I love the bottom 3 together, looks so pretty :) I'm taking it overseas with me so I'll have all the colours I need. If you can I would deffinately pick one up, don't worry about getting the one for your own eye colour just choose the colours you like

I got this product a long time ago so I have no idea exactly where it came from. I just read the label today prior to using it for the first time in forever, and I have the one for brown eyes (even though mine are green).
I like the light pigments a lot as they are very shimmery and can be used as a highlighter. These nude shades are very nice and blendable. The rest of the palette is lavender, violet, plum and brown for lining. I have never used a shadow wet as a liner, so I tried this for the first time and was impressed. I like the brown pigment as it is not too dark and is also slightly shimmery so it applies smoothly and it stayed on my water line (never expected that).
I also used the plum to line my upper lashes which also worked well.
The purples aren't super pigmented when used dry as they are very shimmery (not glittery)... maybe they would be more pigmented if used wet, but they still work well and blend together beautifully. I agree with a previous reviewer who said that the shimmer takes away a lot of the pigment, so this product needs to be layered well to show up. I like that even though it is for brown eyes, the purples really make my green eyes stand out more than usual; the colors seem to bring out the aqua tones.
Anyway... I would like to try the one for green eyes but I am not even sure if this product is still around in stores. Plus PF products tend to be pricey for drugstore makeup that isn't anything magnificent. Probably would not purchase simply because there are even cheaper products out there that do a better job, but I am not disappointed with the product and I will continue to use it. I've had this one small palette for probably a few years and have used it quite a bit. Sometimes I've used it heavily and applied the shadows using those cheap/disposable sponge applicators, yet the palette looks like it's barely been touched. This will last a while so I am confident that I will not repurchase this version.
P.S. This product does NOT stay on well on it's own. It creases and dissolves so it must be used with a primer. I use mine with the UDPP which helps it stay on a lot better. If you are looking for a pigmented shadow that will really stand out, look elsewhere.

I really wanted to like this. The colors are nice but they have no staying power. If I use a high quality eyeshadow primer , I guess it could work. These are alright for drugstore eyeshadows.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
The idea is great, the packaging is wonderful with explanations on the covering how to apply, as for liner: in few words: not good as liner but I guess it will be fine as creamy eye shadow, I donít use these colors as shadows so for me this product is not useful. I give it 3 out of 5 because I'm not sure it's not a good product, just for me it doesn't work out

I got this in the Smokey Blue Eyes color selection and it really makes my brown eyes POP!!!
Beautiful selection of bluish greys, dark navy and steel blues along with lighter silvers and even a golden/bronze color.
I always use a primer and a colored e/s base (NYX pots & pans) with these shadows and they stay vibrant for a very long time.
I love that they are very pigmented and easily blendable.
The downside is that the individual e/s colors are very narrow and you have to be careful when putting your brush into them if you don't want to touch the colors on either side.
Overall - I LOVE IT!!! I'm going to get every other color b/c I think these things are amazing.

I was super excited to try out my "Physicians Formula Shimmering Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner, Bronze Collection" for Hazel eyes. I have brown eyes but prefer this palette.
Note: I always make sure to moisturize and prime my face before applying makeup.
This product crumbled a fair bit while I was loading it up onto my eyeshadow brush. I had to apply several times to build to my preference. I applied the 4th shade for the inner corners, 5th shade in the middle of my lid, and the last shade for the outside V of my lid. It looked great and was easy to correct. I ran the 4th shade down the length of my nose to highlight but quickly removed it because I found the sparkles to be too chunky.
The 4th shade on the inner corners of my eye have already completely disappeared, the 5th shade on my middle lids seemed to have faded a bit and the last shade was still holding up fine.
Coming home from work, I noticed that a lot of the total product had disappeared or clumped in my eye creases. Also, my eyelids looked more oily than usual.
Wouldn't recommend purchasing unless they reformulate to fix these problems.

I love this eyeshadow!
I have hazel eyes. I bought the shimmer strips and the smokey versions for hazel eyes and green eyes as well.
I love they way they are packaged...you get like nine shades in one package!
I actually use the regular one for green eyes the most. I love the purples...I use them to line all around my eye and it really brings out the green in them. I get loads of compliments when I wear it.
My only complaint is that you have to put a lot on before the color really stands out...the colors could be a little more vibrant.
Other than that, I think it stays on really well, and I love all the different shades.

I have the one for brown eyes from the bronze collection. I actually enjoy this palette a lot. They shadows are all shimmery but that's what I like about them. They apply smoothly and are fairly pigmented. I use these shadows almost everyday and the bronze colors are great for summer. If you don't like shimmer then I would not recommend these. They are called shimmer strips after all. The packaging is sturdy, and I also like how this palette comes with a lot of colors. It's a bit pricy for drug store make up but I like it overall.
