|L-R: Hazel, Glam Green, Green, Glam Hazel, Glam Blue|
I purchased 5 of these, which come with 3 different liners in each. They normally cost around $10, but I copped them at 75% off. So basically I got 15 gel liners for like less than 13 bucks :) Score!
Within PF's gel liner collections there are liner trios made specifically to enhance the color of your eye, and then there are liner trios called Glam that not only enhance your eye color, but also, well, glam up your eye with extra shimmer and dazzle. I got 2 of the normal trios, Green Eyes & Hazel Eyes, and 3 of the glam trios, Glam Green Eyes, Glam Hazel Eyes, & Glam Blue Eyes. Don't feel like you have to stick with whatever trio is meant for your own personal eye color. I have brown eyes and even though none of the liners I got were intended for brown eyes that hasn't stopped me from loving them or stopped them from looking great on me :)
The only other actual 'gel' liner than I used before was the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner. I find the PF liners to be a lot less messy than the Eye Studio Liner. I think this is because the PF liners are a bit more firm while being a bit more pigmented, so you don't end up having or needing as much product on your brush.
One of my favorite aspects of this product is it's packaging. The trios come stacked on each other, like legos, and can stack on other PF gel liner trios. You can also take the individual pots apart and store them that way, but I find them most storage-friendly for me when 2 or 3 trios are stacked together.
There are only a few minor cons that I can think of. One, these set to a very dry finish, to the point where if you accidentally rub your eyes while wearing them they may flake a bit. However, on a good note the fact that they do dry down so much means that they run less of a chance of smearing. Secondly, I found that with the Glam Trios, some of the more shimmery liners weren't as pigmented and weren't as easy to apply. They required a few more strokes as they seemed to have a slightly drier texture than the rest. Finally, in order to tightly close the lids on a couple of the individual liners, some lids didn't line up completely with the container. And when I say completely, I mean they don't line up at all. So if the container is lying horizontally, the lid will sit on it vertically. So far this has only been an inconvenience aesthetically and storage-wise, but I fear that over time the liners may dry out because this. But out of 15 liners, this only affected 3 of them.
Bottom Line: Amber LOVES!!! <3<3<3<3<3
I have been using these almost every day since I purchased them. Even though I normally think Physicians Formula's products are normally overpriced, I think these liners are actually a bargain even at their full retail price since you get 3 for 10 bucks. Enjoy the swatches!
I highly recommend picking up one of these. If you missed them during the CVS sale, I just saw some of them on clearance at Rite Aid too :)
Have you tried these yet (I know they've been out for a while, I'm always late lol)? Did you like them?
