This will be my first try with the Shimmer Strips Eye Palettes, I haven’t tried them before but some of these shades were just too darling not to give a whirl.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    The eyeliner trios look interesting, I’d have to get a better look at them but they seem like something I’d totally go for. I have enough eyeshadow to last me a lifetime. Liner on the other hand…

    I’ve never bought any of the shimmer strips and have never felt the need to. But! Those eyeliner trios look so cool. Will definitely have to check out the colors in person and try some.

    I have been intrigued by the Shimmer Strips for quite some time. They look cool!

    Not sure about the rest of the US, but in NYC, CVS has a bunch of Physicians Formula stuff marked down 50-75%! Maybe making way for this new stuff?

        Not just P.F. but most brands have stuff marked down. Scan your CVS card at the coupon center….coupons are printing for makeup and you can use the coupon on the markdown makeup….some people are legit getting free makeup.

    Like the eyeliner trios. I also have so much eye shadow. I’ve never used any makeup by this line.

    Hi Muse,

    I have green eyes and bought at rite-aid the new eye liner trios and returned it as I already have the original gel liners but I wanted to compare it and see if they were the same colors when swatched and they were. The new retractable liners to me seemed rather blah on except for the black one which did have a nice green shimmer to it if I remember correctly..if only it was sold separately that would be good.

    Okay. I think the whole candy theme on the shimmer strips are soooo cute. Definitely appealing to my gothic lolita.

    We just got the trio eyeliners and the happy powders you did a review on awhile ago, Muse! I’m definitely pumped to try the powders out! I am envious about the candy shimmer strips color collection that you guys have! I have several of the eyeshadow palettes and I really like them! I wont usually buy them though unless they for 40% off.
    Can’t wait to hear what yo think about the shadows!

      hey telle haven’t seen the happy boost powders here yet but gagging for ’em ;-D review upcoming soon ;D!

    I have all four sets of the liner trios ^^;;; I was actually hoping to get the gel liner trios at some point and was waiting for a sale, but then these popped up and at the time i had some coupons so i gave it a try. I like them! they stayed well and are pretty pigmented. they’re not SO soft that even my lashes are cutting bits off, but they don’t tug. i used them on my bottom lashline (not waterline, lashline) and they stay! but i did notice on my right eye a little oily pool of liner collects at my outer eye corner. but only my right eye, and i think it’s partially because i smile/laugh a lot. it happens with other liners too anyway, so i’m not bothered lol. it doesn’t SMUDGE everywhere so i’m pretty happy.

    also it’s a bit expensive, but there are 3 full size liners in each set, so it’s around $4 per liner. and since it’s retractable, i don’t have to deal with sharpening or dealing with a brush for gel liners.

    just picked up the blue set today (the only set i didn’t have) so i can’t wait to try it~

    i’ve tried the old shimmer strips; i have the one for smokey brown eyes & unfortunately it’s pretty average. The colours are ExTREmlY metallic-ky & not in a particularly flattering way.

    The actual formula does not wow nor disgust me. i haven’t given it away as the black & the darker colours can be useful, but the silvers have been untouched for a while…

    • the Muse

      I haven’t tried ’em jackie….the colors looked kinda playful and colorful so def got curious :D! sorry they didn’t work out for ya!
