Physicians Formulas Shimmer Strips Review + Swatches

Posting this super late, oops.  Hi everyone!

Here are swatches of the Physicians Formulas Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes.  Each one is with two swipes. I like it! Mostly the more bronze (8-12) type of colors since they make my blue eyes pop (I personally rather use these as shadows). 

This palette is said to be used as the following: Shadow, Eyeliner, Bronzer, Blush, or highlighter.  As with most products that promote multiple ways to use it, the shadows won't have extreme staying power or pigmentation.  This rings true with the lighter colors, which are mostly used as a highlighter or blush (Top two rows).

I found these to be soft, and not chalky, and they were smooth when applying. It does a great job at giving you a subtle shiny and glowing type of look.  While I did love this product, I did find that the shades would swipe and fade away easily after leaving it there for a while.  This can be due to user error, since I did not wear any sort of primer. 

 In conclusion: There are SOO many products that have these exact same shades, or have better staying power.  What sets this apart from others is the texture and smoothness of it. It does give you a glowing appearance without seeming chalky or packed onto your face.

*Note: While each row is made for a specific purpose, you can mix and match to your liking.
These retail for: $13.95 online, but in some places you can get this for about $10 in stores.
