When I first saw the Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer online, I've been on a hunt. It took me many stores and weeks. I was extremely stoked when I saw the display at my nearest CVS.
I picked up the dry and cream shadow. For this post, I will focus on the eyeshadow palette.

Now for looks I did...
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, this palette is extremely shimmery. If you're not a fan of shimmer eyeshadows, this isn't for you. I'm a huge fan of shimmery shadows. With that said, the shadows are not the most opaque. There's enough color or at least for my skin tone. If you're dark, I doubt any color will show up. Also with the combination of cream shadows in the same line, it looks like foil eyeshadows. I've heard it's similar to Stila foil shadows but you don't have to use the mixing solution. To be honest, I own one Stila foil shadow but I haven't had the chance to try it out. When I do, I will compare it to this. I think it'll be a fun post. Secondly, it lasted all day on me without creasing. Lastly, I own other Physicians Formula palettes but none of them have blown me away. I have to say this and the cream shadows has been my favorite.
