I told myself I would not buy any more eyeshadows for awhile because I just have SO many. But then I get a $5 coupon off any Physician's Formula product and CVS was giving $7 Extra Bucks with the purchase of any Physician's Formula product AND I had this palette on my wishlist already. There were too many taupes in the Physician's Formula Eye
The packaging has changed somewhat in that the clear plastic top now sports the brand name instead of just a "P". I don't really have a preference for either of these designs and I do like the weighty feel of the plastic.
Overall the pigmentation and quality of the shadows is standard for what Physician's Formula usually makes, which is a good thing. The taupes lean towards the cool, silvery side which is fine with me. A taupe is a taupe and I love all taupes :)
The one bright, pop of color in the palette was the most sheer shadow. I wish they would have replaced it with a better shade (of taupe!) to be honest. The pop of color makes the palette look more appealing I guess but other than that, it's pretty useless. The super dark color that I swatched next to the pink is probably my favorite. It's a dark cool toned brown taupe that has awesome pigmentation :)
Now I have a total of four of the Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Palettes! You can see that I gravitate towards the neutral palettes.... I got all of them on sale or discount so I think they're well worth the money. I might get a few more of these if they have another sale even though I really don't need anymore. These retail for about $12 so they're quite pricey for drugstore but you get a decent amount of product and many shades to choose from. I recommend them if you're looking to build your collection of eyeshadows or if you want a travel friendly palette.
