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!

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.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
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.

Just bought this Gel Creamliner for Brown Eyes last week in CVS. They're on 40% sale end up paying around $6 with tax. It so worth it for 3 colors that you get. So far I tried the brown and black.. I found that the brown is creamier than the black. Brown just need one smooth glide..black need two times to make it very black. This is my first gel type eyeliner..so far I'm lovin it. It's very easy to use and the most important thing it STAYS amazingly well. I wear from morning to night (almost 12hr) it didn't smudge or anything without primer. It still look the same like the morning I put on. It's better than my MAC liquid eyeliner obviously.

Oh my gaaawwwdd! I love these so much. My new eye liner obsession.
The texture of these is smoother, creamier, and thinner than other cream liners. They apply a smooth fluid very pigmented liner quite easily. I tightline my lower lashline daily and the thinness of this formula makes it so incredibly easy! Gah, I love this stuff. Great for doing liner on the upper lash line too.
The black and brown and great and very pigmented, but the purple in this trio is a bit less pigmented. It's still usable though.

I like the natural look so I use the brown one and so this review doesn't apply to the black or the purple that's included in the threesome. Although I'll just mention briefly that the pigment for black is great but the purple is disappointing and seems sheer/watery when applied. I've used this for around 10 months everyday as my go-to liner and I simply love its staying power. If you draw a nice solid line on the back of your hand and let it set for 30 seconds, it will not rub off! I tell people its waterproof because it's just that good! I don't use any base or setting powder on the liner, and the colour is true and stays like that for the whole day. I've partied with this and when i woke up the next day, my friend commented on how it looks like it was freshly applied! The jars are plastic instead of glass but it hasn't dried out on me so I won't really complain. I've still not hit the bottom of a single jar so this is easy on the wallet! Give it a try, I think i bought this for around 12 dollars?

I use the black eyeliner almost everyday. The brush that comes with it works great and it glides on smoothly and cleanly. The packaging is also cute and convenient. Not only that but the price is wonderful. Yes, it seems pricier than most drugstore makeup, but remember that there are actually three eyeliners and a brush included. It's not that long-lasting though. I notice that there's smudging underneath my eyes from the eyeliner on the top lid (I am an Asian monolid but I have thin rather than thick eyelids so my eye shape is not totally to blame for smudging). It smudges upward too. I'm rather sad about this because I use primer and I set it afterward with eyeshadow as well. I would buy it again because it's a good deal.

Physician Formula eyeliner worked pretty well for an eyeliner. The colors in this trio were pretty with the brown being my favorite. My only problem with it was that it smudged on me after four hours.

I like that the individual pots stack together like legos because it makes it easy for me to keep them organized in my vanity. The product itself is wonderful! I regularly use the brown & black shades. They are creamy, long lasting, & do not smear or transfer all over my oily eyelids. I personally think that Physician's Formula is on the pricey side for drugstore makeup & would recommend waiting for CVS to feature the brand in their weekly sale (they run a spend $10 get $7 ECB promotion fairly regularly). I have several gel/cream liners in my collection and I reach for these most often. These are great liners - especially if you get them on sale!

Creamy, will not dry out. Any eye color can buy this. Black, brown and purple, who can't wear that?! Staying power is amazing, I apply at 6 am, and by 5 pm it still stays on amazingly!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I have has this trio for more than 6 months and despite its plastic packaging, it has not dried out on me!
I bought this on a whim at an Ulta after asking the SA for a good gel liner that doesn't dry out and has a creamy texture (similar to bobbi brown). The SA recommended me this and studio gear. I gave this a go since she was wearing it and i thought it looked nice. And for $10 you get 3 colors! I have to admit I wear the black the most. I rarely touch the brown and the purple, i think I've tried once for the heck of it. the brown is alright, the purple leaves much to be desired. the black isn't even a jet black but it gets the job done. it actually has subtle purple shimmers in it that are barely noticeable (good cause I just wanted black anyway) which is why I feel it's isn't a true jet dark black. But as I said, it gets the job done.
The stacking cube packaging is alright, I don't mind it but I'm not crazy about it either. I would honestly repurchase this product, but what am I going to do with all the extra purple and brown ones??? Throwing them away is such a waste to say the least. I already tried giving them away to my 13 year old nieces...they aren't into colored liner. I wish that PF would consider selling them as singles and not in the trio. I'm going to enjoying it until I run out and then I'm looking for something else. At least I know about this in case I don't find anything else I like better.

The black and the brown eyeliners are really good, rather bold and very durable. my problem is with the purple one, which was I bought this trio in the first place. it's pigment is really poor and it applies very sheer. I even tried to appy a few coats and it just looks patchy and weird. I'm disappointed

I have hooded eyelids, and eyeliners of any sort leave smudges and lots of fallout under my eyes, so I'd basically given up on liner. I had never tried cream/gel liners before, but heard amazing things about this one.
so I decided to put it to the ultimate test: I put it on at night, slept with it on, and wore it all the next day during humid weather. it promises 24 hour wear, and believe me, it isn't lying. it's still going strong, and there are no smudges or fallout, and the lines are clean and bold. I never sleep with makeup when I can avoid it, but I created the most extreme situation, and this liner pulled through easily.
I love the plummy purple, the espresso color is a nice deep charcoal brown, and the black is nice and rich. I use my own angled brush instead of the one given, and it works better than any liner I've ever tried, needless to say. it goes on like creamy oil paint, but then it dries and stays put for hours. perfect.
