Lime Juice & Raspberries 2.0

Hi Guys and Dolls!

It’s no secret that I haven’t had a full tutorial in a while (we’re talking mid-March people!). April was an insane month for me, tons of highs and lows, but it’s over now so I’m looking forward to making MAY an amazing month! There are a few great product launches at the end of the month that I’m excited about, and of course as summer is just around the corner I have an excuse to reignite my love affair with color (like I need an excuse). Also I’m going to keep up with my Ask Cora Series, product reviews, etc.-I’m back!

Physician’s Formula POP Shimmer Strips Review

Hey Guys and Dolls!

Today I have a review of the Physician’s Formula POP Shimmer Strips collection for ya! The video below explains everything pretty well, but there were a few things that would only make sense when you see the swatch pictures, and a few things I forgot 🙂

I was less than scientific when swatching the gel liners, so I would like to say I could have made some of these more opaque. I also love how you can see that the browns are all different, so if you want more than one, you can rest assured that it’s not all the same color. The sparkles in the black liner show up best for me with the blue and green sets.

EDIT Sept 10: Many of you asked for close-ups of the mascara wands . These are the rubbery-kind.  I normally dislike this type of  rubbery-wand, but for whatever reason these work for me! As you can see the black side is larger and the “combs” are thicker and a little shorter than the color side.

As you can see in these pictures, not only does the black part of each mascara duo have sparkle, but they are tinted by the corresponding color. Also the Blue is the darkest, followed closely by the green. They make the Hazel and Brown ones look well, brown. The crazy thing is, when I first bought the hazel one, I LOVED how black it was! This is why I love comparison swatching! I’d never swatches mascara before but it’s easy & I LOVE it!

By the time I got around to swatching the eye shadow palettes I finally got a little scientific with it! These were all swatched dry, using a lowe-cornell 1/4 inch maxine’s mop brush, and I picked up color no more than 3 times per shadow, but I would rub it back and fourth a few times each time I would get color.  So yes, these were built up, but there are only a handful of shadows that are POW with one swipe. I wanted to explain that process; I liked doing the swatches in a structured way, so you could see some of these are SHEER and some have good pigmentation.

I hope this is helpful!
