Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Creamliner - Brown Eyes

Part of Physicians Formula's Glam collection is the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Cream Liner Trio which I recently purchased for my brown eyes as part of a BOGO 50% off deal at my local drugstore (regular retail $10.99; net weight 6g).

The trio offers a gel cream liner in handy stackable pots in gold, bronze, and black with bronze shimmer as well as a brush.  If you have a tendency of losing your eyeliner pot, these are for you as the pots snap together, making them easier to locate and store (an organizer's dream)!

Overall rating:  Booyah!

The formula is very smooth and glides on beautifully.  If you prefer a thinner, more precise line, I recommend a different brush with a longer handle; though the one included with the trio worked nicely on my upper lash line.  I found that the liners wore for 14+ hours and didn't run or smudge throughout the day.  I will definitely be looking for the other trios as I just love this formula.

Have you tried these?  Please let me know your thoughts.
