Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Extreme Shimmer Collection

Many thanks to reader @rockgirlmaxim84 on Instagram for this one! In addition to the new Work It! collection I showed you earlier, she also spotted this new Physicians Formula display at a local indie drugstore in her area this week, and kindly shared the above pic. I enlarged her pic a bit to give you a closer look at these new (permanent) products:

We have four new Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Shadow & Liner palettes. If you're a fan of the original Nude and Smoky palettes in this line, I'm guessing you'll be happy to see that they've expanded and added four new palettes to the range!

For eyeliner, we have a new Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil & Smudger Trio (left). I don't recall PF ever giving us a smudger tip on their eyeliner trios before, do you? Looks like there's a gold, brown/bronze and black in this trio.

To the right is a new Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Kohl Kajal Liner + Liquid Liner Trio. These appear to be double-ended, with the kohl liner on one end and the liquid liner on the other? Looks like there's a gold, bronze and black in this trio. You know, I have yet to try the original Kohl Kajal liners from PF yet, have you? 

These are not yet on the PF website in the What's New section, but I'm guessing they will be any day now, if you want to check back there for more info.

Thanks so much, rockgirlmaxim84, for the great sighting and pic!


  1. You r not missing anything by not trying those original liners. They broke off the first time I tried. I returned them to physicians formula

  2. Their 'kajal' liners are no good, dry and sheer. I like their retractable liners. I like the Shimmer Strips Extreme shadows, super shiny.

    1. Do you have any recommendations for a good kohl/kajal liner?

    2. Not really, I haven't tried any other liners shaped that way yet. I usually stick with the retractable Physician's formula liners, Avon liquiglide pencil, and UD 24/7 pencils - those are the best pencils that I've tried.

  3. Agreed on the kajal liners, I really don't understand the purpose of making it in that shape anymore when we have the technology to make chubby pencils now.

    Also I really hope the eyeshadows are not those greasy lipstick-consistency ones that never quite sets.

  4. I used the kajal a few times and I never had a problem with them. I dont use them often but I got them when they first came out and just a few weeks ago.

  5. The shadows that came out earlier this year that looked like those were pretty bad IMO. I never read any good reviews on them so I was kind of shocked to see they came out with new ones, unless they are (hopefully) reformulated.
