Physicians Formula Baked Collection in Baked Sands

This is my second post for this week. Amazing!... lol~ :P I actually bought this eyeshadow palette, Physicians Formula Baked Collection in Baked Sands, end of last year (2008). I'm finally going to review it... hehe~
Product Review: Physicians Formula Baked Collection in Baked Sands

Where can you purchase this: drugstores (I got mine at Walgreens)
$7-8 (I paid around $4 with coupon)

Made in Italy

My thoughts: I'm not too thrilled about the packaging for several reasons. It's sad to say this but what draws me to products is their packaging. The packaging definitely did not draw me in... lol~
It's very simple design and everything is circular... lol~ The eyeshadows are circular, as well as, dome shaped. So is the package including the lid. Another reason why I don't like the packaging is that it's not the most travel friendly. I think the dome shape hinders the palette to be carried around. Luckily, I don't travel much. :P

The one thing I really like about this palette is how pigmented the colors are, as well as, how the colors are blended together. It's gorgeous!!! :)
It looks great on the skin, but I think it looks better on the eyes... hehe~ ;)

* Pigmented.
* Gorgeous colors.
* Great mix of colors together.
* Blends well.

* Packaging.
* Not travel friendly.

Would I buy this again? Yes, I'm waiting for a sale on the gray ones... hehe~

Love it all. I love physicians formula but pretty much I only own the shimmer bricks which I absolutely loooove. :D. I really want to try the baked eye shadows. Your eye liner looks really good too!

Aradani said...

aww what nice gifts!
lol I remember physicians formula and neutragena were my first two favorite makeup brands when I got started. I still have a face powder from physicians formula that I bought about 3 yrs ago lol. I've always liked the designs on their powders and bronzers. too bad they couldn't put that same ingenuity into their eyeshadows, eh? but you're right, they're super pigmented and pretty!

i love how you lined your eyes!

i think its too bulky too..
but then the colors are really pretty!

Violet Honeybee said...

Physicians Formula sounds like a nice brand! I love the way you applied the shadows and liner =D

I liked the Rhumba and the butt dances this week! Ade and the ballerina were super hot on the dance floor! Yeah I agree, the butt dance was simple YET memorable hahaha.

Are you feeling better now? I remembered that you were down with flu and fever last week. It's my turn to be sick now =[
