I got this at my local CVS for 75% off. despite not having hazel eyes, I liked the colors: antique gold, amethyst, and black with gold sparkles. the gold and amethyst shades are pretty when swatched, and are good to use when I want a lighter look. sadly, they dry out easily and I've already had to revive them twice with eyedrops. the black shade for some reason doesn't have this problem. it goes on great and I can actually see the sparkles when the product is on, if I look closely. I rated this product a 3 just because of the drying-out problem with two of the three colors. Meh.

I got this set of eyeliners on sale at CVS for 75% off which made them $2.75 where I live. The black with gold sparkle in this set is amazing! It alone made my purchase worth it. The other two colors are very pretty but are kind of light in color. I think they would be good as an eyeshadow base. I didn't have an issue with mine being dried out, which made me very happy :)

I found these at CVS marked at 75% off. I bought the trio for blue eyes and rushed out for the hazel ones the next day. Although my eyes are blue, I highly prefer the hazel eye trio. I love the black with the gold shimmer, it's beautiful and much more shimmery than the black with silver shimmer of the blue eye collection. I get a beautiful look by using the black at my lashline and then using the antique gold right above that. I have no problems with any of these being dried although the blue in my blue eye trio is dry as well as not very pigmented. Seeing as I ended up paying about $3 for all 3 liners it was a great deal.

* very creamy making it so easy and nice to apply
* HUGE CHUNKY glitter that is a pain to remove...that spreads all over your face as youre done removing it.
* not great pigment with the purple color.
Conclusion: i would totally buy the not glam collection one because the glam one has huge glitters in all three of them. I feel like they should atleast write in on the packaging or something. The glitters are technically the only negative part.

It seems like with every set of these Shimmer Strips Gel Creamliners there are 1 or 2 amazing liners and at least 1 with horrible quality. The Glam Hazel Eyes are no exception.
The black with gold shimmer is one of the best cream eyeliners I've ever used. It glides on so smooth and creamy but quickly dries to a smudge-proof finish. Besides the amazing texture is the gold shimmer. I was worried it wouldn't be noticeable since I couldn't see it from the outside of the package, but it is loaded with tons of gold glitter! The best part is if you want it very subtle you can just swipe it on. But if you want the glitter to really pop just smudge it with your finger or a Q-tip and all this glitter shines!
Now to the negative.. the Antique Gold is pretty unique because it is more muted or neutral toned i.e. not too yellow but obviously not silver. The Metallic Amethyst is also very unique as is is a dusty purple loaded with pink, purple, and gold shimmer flecks. However they apply like they are dried out. They are very crumbly, making it hard to get a nice line with much color. All I get is some sparkles on my skin. I thought maybe it was old so I wiped off the top layer and the product underneath was just as dry. If it weren't for the black being so creamy I would have thought they were dried out and returned them. It's such a shame since they are such gorgeous colors in the package.
I'd give this a rating of 1 except for the gorgeous black liner, which is a 5, so I'm giving this a 2.
