Physicians Formula has a new Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner available for the Holidays. The collection features three new strips of Shimmer Eyeliner and three new mascaras. They break these up into eye color groups as in “select this color to flatter blue eyes”, “select this color to flatter brown eyes” and so on and so forth. I’m personally not keen on anyone telling me what flatters my eyes most as I’m of the mentality that anyone can wear any shade of color they choose. Granted some shades simply don’t work for me but most are a-ok and I don’t limit what I wear because I have brown eyes…..Just because I have brown eyes doesn’t mean I have to stick to wearing golds, browns, and black because Physicians Formula told me so.
Get my rant?
Aside from that the idea behind the product is interesting since it gives you not one, not two, but three gel eyeliners in stackable jars.
Has anyone tried the Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls? I’ve stayed away from them for a while now because I feared they’d apply to frosty. I can’t dig the frost.
Recently, I came across the new Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blush and was pretty skeptical since they looked pretty frosty too. The original Glow Pearls were a highlighter type of powder where as this version is a blusher. Looking at them I was absolutely gasping for breath because pretty is an understatement. They are really pretty pieces of makeup that can get a beauty junkies panties in a twist. However, my logical side whispered in my ear about how they would probably apply frosty so I sat at the display for a quarter of an hour debating if I needed them or not. After a few more minutes went by I decided I’d just try one color and after ten more minutes went buy I walked out of the store with both colors they had.
Did I like them?
Did they apply frosty?
I’ll tell you next week!
Ha, only kidding!

Lord knows I’m a high end cosmetic junkie. I live by the rule, “you get what you pay for”. Dishing out $20 for an eyeshadow that easily blends, has plenty of pigment, and simply looks stunning is way better than dishing out $5 for one that blends awful, has a chalky formula, and just looks awful on my eyes.
You get what you pay for.
However, some drugstore cosmetics have convinced me that they deserve a special spot among my elite high end cosmetic brands.
Here’s a post that checks out the best of both worlds and includes the best High End Cosmetics vs. the best Drugstore Cosmetics.
A little sunlight, a little moonlight…have both with the Physicians Formula Bronzer Summer Eclipse Moonlight Powder.
