Don’t you just hate products with an unnecessarily long name? The Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio are precisely that and let me tell you, the long name has to be a ploy to distract you from the cruddy performance of said product.
Before I tell you why this product is not worth your time or money, can we please talk about Physician’s Formulas packaging? Call it bad reasoning, but something about the brand’s name and range of organic products seems contradictory to their unnecessary, excessive, bulky packaging at times.
This trio is in the shade Nude Eyes and I think I paid about $12 for it at RiteAid. You get a black liner, a pewter liner, and a champagne liner. Clearly I was not thinking when I picked these up, but it was a BOGO free deal so not a bad loss, because now I look at them and think:
- How do you sharpen them?
- Are they twist ups?
- Is that all the product there is?!
Or at least that is what I should have thought about in the first place.
The colors are lovely, shimmery, pigmented, go on smoothly enough. And that is where the positives end. They are too thick to get a nice, clean line on the lid and are rubbish everywhere else. Tight lining? I hope your planning on doing your waterline the same color because they transfer. Water line? Plan on carrying this with you for touch ups. I found that they faded, especially on the outer part of my water line.
To answer my own questions:
- They can’t be sharpened. Once you use up the tip you are S.O.L. and it is useless.
- They do not twist up so
- That is all the product you get.
If you see these, keep walking. Nothing to see here.
