Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Extreme Shimmer Shadow Review!


Physicians Formula has really knocked it out of the park this spring. They released a BUNCH of new products (I wish I could try all of them!), including this beautifully sparkly eyeshadow palette! I heard some good reviews of this, so I had to try it for myself. Some reviewers have compared it to Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadows, but I haven’t tried those (yet).


This palette includes 6 shades. Sorry the lighting is poor; I had trouble with these due to everything reflecting off of the snow outside. 🙂 The colors are a lot more distinguishable from each other in person, and have more sparkle. Also, can we just take a minute to appreciate the beauty that is the pink sparkles packaging? Mega swoon!


I was surprised at how pigmented these are. The white one is probably the most pigmented of the bunch, but all of them packed a punch. My favorite shade for the lid is the second brown color, but those pinky peach champagne sparkles in the middle just kill me. I have been completely obsessed with this little palette since picking it up a couple weeks ago.


Again, this as difficult to capture the true colors on camera! I like to intensify these shadows by spraying MAC Fix+ onto my brush. I also recommend tapping the brush before applying, because there is some fallout.


With a primer, I didn’t have trouble with these shadows staying all day. Plus, they really made my eyes pop! If you LOVE glitter and sparkly shadows, you will probably like these. Since I loved this palette so much, I also picked up the cream bases; hopefully these two products enhance each other.

Physicians Formula did not disappoint, and you know I can be a little bit of an eyeshadow snob. 😉

Have you tried any of the new items from Physicians Formula yet?
