PRODUCT RATING:★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6/10)
PRICE DETAILS: $10.95 for set of 3 liners (♦♦♦♦♦)
COLORS REVIEWED: Brown Eyes. Espresso, Purple and Black.
QUICK REVIEW: Pretty – but didn’t work on the inner rim and smudged. A lot.
the REVIEW (01/07/2011): Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio in Brown Eyes ($10.95, drugstores) is the first drugstore product to emulate the ancient form of eye makeup. Unfortunately, while the product has decent pigmentation and the application is initially pretty – it fails to perform in wear.
Sold in a set of three kohls in Espresso (rich dark brown), Purple (violet purple) and Black, one of the obvious future issues of this product is its inability to maintain a rounded point – over time, the tip will get thicker and thicker making control a problem. While I was able to get a somewhat bold line with a bit of coaxing, all of the colors are not as pigmented as hoped. The Black also didn’t line the inner rim or hold the color as well as my drugstore favorite L’Oreal Extra Intense Eyeliner in Carbon Black ($8.95)
However, Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio does make a decent base for like colored shadows – as the creamier texture is more like a shadow pencil vs. an eyeliner.
the FINAL ROAR!: Since the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio in Brown Eyes were purchased on sale for $6.59, they are still a good deal for 3 liners. While they were just fair as an eyeliner, as a shadow pencil they created a good base for a smokey eye or darker shadows.
