physicians formula spring 2014 shimmer strips palettes
Spring 2014's Shimmer Strips have a new outfit. A lace-print box compact with a twee bow and a shape more rectangles than strips, the shimmer palettes come in Warm Nude and Natural Nude hues.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes in Warm Nude ($16.79 at drugstores).
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes in Natural Nude ($16.79 at drugstores).
Flip the compact over for the applicators, a brush for face and angled applicator for eyes, and you'll find handy how-to-wear-it instructions on the inside back flap.
physicians formula spring 2014 shimmer strips khol kajal
Physicians Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio in Warm Nude Eyes ($14.79 at drugstores) consists of waterproof, high-pigment creamy shades, Black, Bronze and Copper, formulated for lining the inner rim or waterline of the eyes. PF celebrity makeup pro Joanna Schlip points out that the large point is particularly suited to easy inner-rim application because there are no hard edges to irritate as you line. (Catch her tips for nude makeup here, and her tips for wearing shimmer and glitter here.)
Physicians Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio in Natural Nude Eyes ($14.79 at drugstores). Black, Mocha and Natural. New obsession alert: love the Mocha and Natural, as well as the Bronze and Copper from the Warm Nude Eyes trio, for gorgeous smoky eye options. These glide on and last.
physicians formula spring 2014 shimmer strips extreme shimmer eye liners
Physicians Formula Shimmer strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Eyeliner Trio for Brown Eyes ($14.79 at drugstores) -- shimmery black, shimmery brown and shimmery purple. Really, these would enhance blue, green and hazel eyes, too.
Physicians Formula Shimmer strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Eyeliner Trio for Blue Eyes ($14.79 at drugstores) -- shimmery black, shimmery brown and shimmery dark blue. People still ask whether blue eyes look good with blue eye shadow or liner. The answer is yes, blue eyes look great with blue makeup if you use a deeper blue than the colour of your eyes.
physicians formula spring 2014 sexy booster collection
The Physicians Formula Sexy Booster collection consists of an eye shadow quad, mascara and an eyeliner trio that includes long-wear khol kajal, felt-tip liner marker, and automatic or wind-up pencil liner. The "Sexy Booster" part is all about infused scent: cocoa extract and vanilla and musk, which are supposed to make you feel more sexy as you apply the cosmetics. Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Eye Shadow Quad in Oh So Sexy ($14.49 at drugstores), Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Va Va Voom Volume Mascara ($15.79 at drugstores) and Physicians Formula Ooh La La Sexy Eyes Trio ($15.79 at drugstores).
Physicians Formula likes to keep things interesting. Along with the cocoa extract and vanilla and musk in the mascara formula, the company has put "horny goatweed" in the mix. You can't tell me they didn't choose that extract for the name. Apparently its roots are in ancient Chinese medicine, an aphrodisiac used to "restore sexual fire." On your lashes? *shrug*
physicians formula spring 2014 bronze booster bb
Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting BB Cream in Light to Medium ($19.99 at drugstores) and Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Beauty Balm BB Bronzer, available in Light to Medium and Medium to Dark ($19.99 at drugstores). Both these bronze BB formulas, one cream, one powder, combine skincare benefits and instant natural-looking sun-kissed colour. Kapi kacchu seeds and phosopholipids (similar to fatty acids) soften skin, vitamins C and E make up the antioxidant sector, and a carob tree extract called ceratonia siliqua is supposed to "enhance a healthy-looking bronze glow."
physicians formula powder palette multi-coloured bronzer for blondes and brunettes
Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Coloured Custom Bronzer in Blonde and Brunette ($19.99 each at drugstores). Lightweight mosaic-style pearlescent powders you can use wet or dry.
I haven't tried the Physicians Formula Glow-Boosting BB Cream yet so I don't know exactly what that carob extract does in practice. I'll keep you posted. As for the Sexy Booster scent, if you like that sweet, dessert-inspired fragrance thing, you'll like these. I wouldn't say it's too strong, but you'll notice it when you apply the makeup.
Really, I'm all about those bronze-y, coppery khol kajals. They'll make any eye colour glow.
Anything out of this collection catch your attention?
