Review: Physician's Forumula Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner palette

Back with another review.  This time it's the Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips in Brown Eye Candy.  I picked this up on one of my couponing trips and I thought it would be a great little palette to add to my makeup collection.


This shadow palette comes with nine shadows in one.  You can use them wet or dry and the shadows are soft, shimmery, and blendable.  They have different eye shadow palettes that target your eye color and are suppose to enhance your eyes.  I picked up the one for brown eyes and I'm loving the neutral colors.  I've been using this palette almost everyday for work and I love the different colors and color combos.  I'm more of a neutral type of chick so these suite me well.  The palette also comes with an applicator brush but I'm not too happy about it.  It's not great for applying shadows but I find it works well when using it under they eye as liner.  Also, since the shadows are really close together, I find it hard to use my e/s brush to pick one color so most of the time, I end up mixing up the colors.  The pigmentation isn't so great either.  You have to really pack on the color to make it pop.

Here are some swatches from temptalia.com.

Yes, I was lazy to swatch the shadows. lol. 

Like I mentioned before, the colors are very pretty but you really have to pack it on to show up on the lid. They are great colors for everyday wear for work, school, etc.  I plan to put this palette to use.  I'll see if I can snap some pics and post them on IG. 

Have any of you tried out Physician's Formula eyeshadow palettes?  If so, what are your thoughts? 
Leave me a comment, I'd love to know.

@Janine - it does come in handy. I carry this one in my makeup bag to apply on the go. I might have a hot date after work and this is a great palette to use.
