Physican's Formula Review and Shimmer Strips and Liner Giveaway!



My fiance thinks i'm crazy because I will put on makeup even if I'm just running down the street to Walgreens or sometimes even if I'm just going for a ride and not even getting out of the car!  I don't dress up for anyone except myself and on occasion (if he deserves it that is) my honey.  There's something about the way I look with make up on that makes me feel more confident about myself.  One of my favorite things in the entire world is trying out new kinds of makeup.  So when Physician's Formula sent me their new Shimmer Strips and Liner, Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder and Bronzer and Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Bronzer, I was ecstatic to get down to business! 

Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner
"New Eye Candy Collection™"
 Their press release states:   "These custom eye candy trios  help you to create the perfect look for day and night.  They come in 9 glamourous shades each featuring a highlighter, coutouring and eye lining shade that glides on with a silky and lasting texture that works either wet or dry.  Use wet for a more dramatic, intense color with long-lasting wear, or use dry for a softer result.  You can also transform shadows into liners when wet.   They're available for 4 different eye colors, Green, Blue, Brown and Hazel.  Each shade is Makeup Artist selected to enhance your natural eye color.  Each strip contains a unique, angled brush applicator that allows perfect blending and precise lining.  Each strip is Paraben-Free, Hypoallergenic, Fragrance Free, Dermatologist Approved.  They are safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers."
What I thought
I love these strips!  I received the strip for Blue eyes and Hazel Eyes.  Only one problem with that, I have Brown Eyes.  Hazel is pretty close and the colors for both looked amazing on my eyes even though they weren't technically for my eye color.  I love wearing all colors of the rainbow so the blues and purples and pinks in the strips came in very handy with some of the outfits I've worn this week.  I have also tried it wet to use it as a liner and it came out just as described, very silky and long lasting.  The applicator that comes with the shimmer strips is a little rough which cause a little soreness on my eyelids if I had to fix my eye shadow or blended a lot.  I love these shimmer strips and I plan on purchasing the one for Brown Eyes very soon.  
You can find Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips at fine drug and mass-market stores nationwide, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and many others.  The Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips retail for only $10.95.




Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Powder & Bronzer
According to their press release, "This product is part of the 1st ever makeup line created to stimulate happiness and well-being inside, while providing a skin-perfecting, happy glow outside.  This lightweight and airy face powder contains Physicians Formula's exclusive Happy Boost Blend, a cheerful 'happy hear' design and a wonderful light scent.  By combining color, aroma, and texture therapy to deliver a total happy boost."  This amazing powder contains the brand's proprietary Happy Boost Blend and other uplifting ingrediants including:
Happy Skin- Derived from Arctic Rose, it mimics the effect of endorphins, also known as "happy molecules" for a sense of wellness and pleasure.

This irresistable pink and red compact contains a full size mirror and unique dual tone fan shaped "happy booster brush."  The wonderful, light, violet scent will keep you coming back for more!
What Did I think?
This product is amazing!  The little compact is perfect to bring with me everywhere for a mid-day freshening up.  The color is perfect and it gives me just enough of a glow to make me look amazing.  I have an olive colored skin tone as it is so Ive never used a bronzer before using this product.  I was very suprised that this product didn't make my face look too dark or fake looking.  The scent is delightful and there's something about it that calms you.  The complementary palette of colors blends together perfectly to even out my skin tone and help me look my best.
You can find Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder at fine drug and mass - market stores nationwide including Walmart, Walgreens and CVS among others.  The SRP is $13.95 and comes in four shades: Translucent, Beige, Light Bronzer and Bronzer.



Cashmere Wear Ultra - Smoothing Bronzer
According to their press release, " Cashmere Wear Ultra - Smoothing Bronzer is the first bronzer to go beyond sunny color to provide true anti-aging benefits that create a radiant, youthful, bronze glow.  It embrases the skin with a 100% pure Cashmere Extract - imbued formula that bronzes, beautifies and leaves skin glowing, feeling nourished, lavishly smooth and velvety soft."
This bronzer is ultra comfortable and long lasting.  It contains:
100% Pure Cashmere Extract which conditions and softens skin while helping to create the appearance of smoother more line-free skin.
Syalouronic Acid delivers superior moisturization benefits to help smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Soft Focus Pearls to instantly and visibly help diffuse fine lines and wrinkles.
This product is Fragrance Free, Hypoallergenic, Paraben Free, Oil Free and for all skin types.  Each compact holds a mirror and natural hair brush for easy application.  Not only does this product deliver a sensual, beautiful glow but it also helps skin appear younger from within.
What Did I think?
Like I said before I haven't used a bronzer until I received these products to try.  I was very impressed with how smooth and soft this product feels on my skin.  The natural hair brush is perfect for blending the bronzer into my skin and with the complimentary gold and bronze shades blending together perfectly on my skin, I never have to worry about that fake tan look.  The Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Bronzer has a SRP of $13.99 and is available at fine drug and mass merchandise stores nationwide including Walmart, CVS and Walgreens.  It is available in two shades, Light Bronzer and Bronzer.  I highly recommend all of the products reviewed!
