Ready for N*de? Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner N*de Eyes

Jan 21, 2012

Hello Dear, How is the weekend treating you? I just returned from Chandi Chowk but I did not got surprised now.....NOTHING! As went there to get back my data stick and the person accompanying me was too impatient. I even went to Karims but did not eat there as the line was too long...Hello its Karims!

Anyways let’s not make this post about that. This post is about the cutest eyeshadow palette in town - Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner N*de Eyes....woooo..

What is this? Lets find out...^_^

Alert - this post have too many pics but I have reduced the size, so don't worry :D
Also few pics were taken under sun and some under shadow so you will find a lot of lighting difference among the pics.

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner comes in 4 variants- 

1. Fashionista Eyes - Ultra-glam and bold shades create runway-ready Fashionista Eyes.
2. N*de Eyes - Naked and neutral, yet "never boring" shades create modern N*de Eyes.
3. Casual Eyes - Hip, designer denim shades create classic Casual Eyes.
4. Smoky Eyes - Sultry and smoldering shades create gorgeous Smoky Eyes

I got myself the n*de one basically because of the package. The other are cute too but a peach bow wins the prize :D

Here is all that you should know about this N*de lady in laces.

Create the N*de Eye: 1. Sweep medium shade over lid as base. 2. Apply darkest shade to upper & lower lash line with pointed tip of applicator to line eyes. For added definition, apply darkest shade in the contour of upper eyelid. To intensify color, wet applicator. 3. Use lightest shade to highlight brow bone.


It is the first thing you will notice about it. The lace is wrapped around it and it has a cute bow on it. I would have got this even if it was not a 9 eyshadow palette. I am serious here..think about it as a cute storage box for your precious earring. I loved the package so much that I ended up clicking more than 25 pics of that only but then I could not put that many here so here are the final contestants ^_^


On top of it when beauty gurus swatched this and mentioned that its has the same colours as UD Naked 1 & 2, then why will I waste invest so much on them when I can get this in 10$ ? I do not have UD Naked but here are the swatches.
  In lighted areas but not under Sun
Under Direct Sunlight

Strip is directly reflecting the sunlight. My hand is facing away from it.

Top Row - Direct sunlight - Observe the shimmer.
Second row - Lighted but not directed sunlight.
Bottom - Strip under direct sunlight

I did not tried the wet application as so far I am bit scared to do that. I does have a single applicator but somehow it was of no use for me.

Whats sweet about this?

1. The package. I do not want to say more for this point.
2. Price - 10$ for 9 colours! Even the Bourjois single pots are more than $10. But then the shipping costs to India are a bummer.
3. The colors are great if shimmer is your taste. If you use eyeshadows very rarely then this is one of the must haves after Maybelline Chai Latte.
4. The color last a good amount of time with the primer/concealer and even without it.
5. Pigmentation is very high.
6. Have not tried the wet application for all colors but you can use it as a liner when applied with a damp brush. No empty claims like the Revlon Custom Eyes.

Whats bitter about this?

1. The package. I will never travel with this as I am afraid I might harm it.
2. Fall out is there but then its expected with shimmer eyeshadows. Also it was not very noticeable even after a long time.
3. As the strips are quite thin you might find some issue with some brushes. I never had any problem but then for some it can be a issue.
4. Availability. You get to get hold of a Ebay seller. Luckily I got a combined shipping for 3 PF items from a seller. I felt it was a gr8 deal.

What could have been better

1. A mirror on the back but I guess then this would have become heavy.
2. A full covered package to make it easier to travel with.
3. Separate chambers for colors to make sure that one color does not jump into another one.

So, are you ready to be N*de? *wink*
