Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner Swatches and Review

Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Liner

Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Liner in Hazel, Blue, and Green eyes.

Another Rave review for a Physician’s Formula product. This is for their gel liners. Here’s a quick rundown of why I love these:

1.) Price point is low 2.) You get three colors in one product 3.) they wear fabulously 4.) they glide on smoothly 5.) They have shimmer hidden inside

You may notice I have all the colors except for the one that goes with my brown eyes. Well, that’s not a problem. I buy makeup colors based on what I like and what I know looks good on me not by the label. I will say that all the colors I have complement my brown eyes though they are designed for other eye colors. What does this mean? Don’t feel constricted to buy your eye color’s set because of the label. Buy what you want! Read on for the review…..

L'oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator Eyeliner in Black Crystal

L’Oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator Eyeliner in ‘Black Crystal’

The L’oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator is one of L’oreal’s brand new products on the shelves right now. I was so excited to see these released because, to my knowledge, this is the first white eyeliner pencil to make it to the drugstore shelves. For this, l’oreal, you are innovative and I congratulate you. I bought two of these, this is ‘black crystal’ with a black end and a white end. I also got the one for ‘brown eyes’ which is a purple liner and a white liner on the ‘illuminate’ end. Did I like it? Review and pictures to follow……

Cover Girl Eye Enhancers Single Shadows Review and Swatches

Cover Girl Eye Enhancers Packaging

Cover Girl Eye Enhancers Packaging: color is Swiss Chocolate

The covergirl eye enhancers are not new to me as I used these lots in high school way back over 10 years ago! Whew! I was actually avoiding them for the last few years I had discovered high ened makeup and those shadows beat the pants off of covergirl. However, I recently purchased these while they were on sale and I got them for a steal. I have to say I was pleasantly suprised! I don’t know if cover girl changed their formula but it’s quite possible that they have as things do change over a decade. read on to see what I thought……

NYX Candy Glitter Liners Swatch and Review

I love glitter! I must say that before I go furthur with this review. I think glitter is a way to make yourself feel like a really awesome piece of jewlry: sparkly, fun, and colorful. I don’t wear glitter everyday but I enjoy wearing it occasionally on a regular basis – does that make sense? Sure it does. 🙂 I love the NYX candy glitter liners  for a few reasons: they are cheap, they are easily accessible, they work, they’re pigmented, and they add just enough glitter without being too over the top. You can buy these online from NYX, cherryculture, or other sites but I often get mine at ULTA. I have five colors to show you. If you’re interested in a little glitter to your look but don’t want to look like a rocker barbie, these are great. You can use them for a little glitter on top or bottom lashline or a tad bit in the outer corner of the eye. I definately reccomend them. The only downside is dry time. They do take a few minutes to dry and if you place it on your top lashline, you have to keep your eye semi-closed for that time. Pictures below….enjoy!
