Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Vegas Strip - Review





I'm starting off my come back with a review of a highlighter from Physicians Formula. I bought this a while back and the reason was because Emily Noel on YouTube talked about this being a dupe for Becca Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop and since I didn't want to spend over forty dollars on a highlighter, I decided to give this a try. 

It has five different strips of colours that gradually get darker from light gold to bronze. I think these can be used to create an eye look but I haven't tried to do that myself because I forget honestly. I have so many eyeshadow palettes that I never think of using a highlighter as eyeshadow but the shades can be used I'm sure. The colours individually have good pigment and mixed together create a nice, golden peach shimmer colour. When I first got this I really enjoyed it and used it a lot. I have had it for about a year and I find that now after all this time, it still works good with a brush, but when I wanted to finger swatch it and test it out again, it felt hard on the surface and I had to really press my fingers to get it on my skin. with a brush it works totally fine because I don't want to be too much but on my fingers to get swatches, I had a bit of hard time. So the pictures I have used above is from the time I first got this highlighter. 

Even though it felt hard on the surface, with a brush is totally workable and nothing wrong with it but it just doesn't feel soft to the touch and now that I know that about this, I'm not sure I would repurchase it again if given the chance. Don't get me wrong, it works really nice and it's under twenty dollar range which is good for Physician Formula products, but I have other highlighters I prefer over this and I'm iffy about this. If you had asked me to repurchase a year ago, I would have definitely said yes, but now it's a maybe. So overall, I would say this has good pigmentation and a good option at the drugstore.
