As I was getting ready to go away on vacation, I realized I would be in need of a waterproof eyeliner pencil or two to take along on the trip. I always manage to get waterproof mascara, but waterproof eyeliner is something that has always evaded me – until now. I luckily stumbled upon Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio (for brown eyes!) at my local CVS a few days before I was leaving on vacation.
The Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio more than met my expectations for a 24-hour wear eyeliner pencil. This set included three different colors, all perfectly suited for my brown eyes – but you can definitely pick up the trio that best suits your own eye color. The brown eyes trio for water-resistant eyeliners includes three different colored eye pencils – natural Espresso, playful Purple, and dramatic Black and Purple Shimmer.
I found all three to be just what I needed in one product package, rather than having to buy two or three separate eyeliner products. I especially love wearing purple colors on my eyes since the hues go so nicely with brown eyes, so I greatly enjoyed the purple eyeliner. I also found the brown pencil matched my usual go-to eye shadows and mascara, since I’ve been so swept up in browns and earth tones lately, well who am I kidding, almost forever.
Each eyeliner pencil also includes its own sharpener for precision application. I haven’t had to use it yet, but it’s nice to know it’s there.
I wore these eyeliners along with my waterproof mascara in the swimming pool several times on vacation and found the colors stayed put and my makeup looked great even hours later when I returned to my hotel room. These pencils seem to be effectively waterproof and tear-proof, making them great for movie dates, weddings, and any sentimental occasion.
Suggested retail price is $10.95, but I am pretty sure I got mine for buy one, get one half-off. You can typically find Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio for brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes, or hazel eyes for sale anywhere from $6 to $11 per trio.
