Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio for Brown Eyes (L) and Blue Eyes (R).
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio (A$24.95/set) contains three waterproof and pigmented eyeliner shades to define and enhance the eyes. The range is available in three different sets to compliment Brown Eyes, Blue Eyes and Green Eyes.

These automatic eyeliner pencils are super thin and slender, so they do not take up much space in my makeup bag. Just pop off the cap, twist up the eyeliner and apply away! I also just realised that these eyeliner pencils also come with an in-built sharpener on the other end, so if you need precision, you could always sharpen the tip of the eyeliner to line the inner rim of the eyes. I typically use the sharpener on the darker eyeliner shades more often than the coloured shades.

Blue Eyes (top) and Brown Eyes (bottom) set.
Blue Eyes set:
'Dramatic' Black - a charcoal black with subtle blue shimmers
'Playful' Brown - a metallic golden bronze
'Natural' Blue - an intense midnight blue with a hint of blue shimmers

Brown Eyes set:
'Dramatic' Black - a deep black matte
'Playful' Purple - a vibrant matte purple
'Natural' Brown - a dark chocolate brown

Brown Eyes (L) and Blue Eyes (R) set.
The shades of these eyeliners are just gorgeous and the longevity is just brilliant! These eyeliners glide on so smoothly and are pigmented to the point where I didn't need to re-apply - just one stroke provided intense colour. The only exception was for the two black shades, which I found were not as pigmented as the coloured shades. The black eyeliners lean more towards charcoal or a soft black shade. Although some of the eyeliners appear to contain shimmers in them, I didn't really notice the shimmers from a short distance or while looking in the mirror. These eyeliners are long-wearing and surprisingly they did not smudge at all. I usually wear the brown and purple shades for everyday wear as these shades make my eyes pop. Through the times that I was teary, the eyeliner did not smudge. So, if you are a regular gym junkie, you wouldn't need to worry about smudging or fading after a gym session. To remove, I apply cleansing oil onto a cotton pad and gently wipe away. The quality of these eyeliners are definitely impressive and to receive three eyeliners for A$24.95, I would call this set a worthy purchase!
