|Application with Physicians Formula's latest|
Nude shades seem to be growing really popular this summer, and shimmer shadows have just been the right ticket for it. The newly launched Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner is a palette that has 9 shades to create 3 different looks, and with that we have three variations of natural, playful and dramatic all built into one.
|The Classic Nude Palette|
|9 Shades Unveiled|
Now since this is one of those rare moments where we have worked with a full shimmer palette, we have kept the look above as matte as possible (foundation wise) to show the enhancement of shimmer for both the eyes and lips. Locking in with the last three shades, it was decided to go for the dramatic effect, so with the trio in hand, the eye-look was thus created.
|Using the last 3 shades|
As far as the formulation for these shadows go, the consistency is decent. Pigment came through more for the darker shades so that was a good thing but in terms of the lighter colors, you would definitely need to layer more than twice to get the effect that you would want.
In terms of fall out, there certainly was some but as these shades were shimmer with a pearlescent consistency, it was only just a fair to expect a certain bit. Application otherwise was smooth and blendable, leading to a sheer natural finish once the desired look was complete.
|The Eyeliner Trio|
Here the look was also completed with a liner and having 3 Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio, we opted for the one in black which glided along the lash-line well. The great thing about this was also that there was no shifting after, so the liner did stay put over the shimmer shadows greatly.
