I stumbled upon this Physician’s Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner and Serum at one of my local drug stores on a sale display. I hadn’t heard of this product anywhere and I’m not a fan of liquid eyeliner in my middle age, preferring a more muted pencil or powder version. But I decided that it might be worth considering due to, a) the 2 for 1 price tag which would allow me to give it a good go without shucking out a lot of dough, and b) the availability of brown instead of black, which I find much more flattering on my middle-aged, golden brown eyes.
You use this product in place of or under any other eyeliner on a daily basis. And that is glitch number 1 for me. I don’t wear makeup every day anymore so I had to apply it every morning even on days I didn’t plan to wear makeup. Ah well, I can wear eyeliner around the house even if the rest of my face is bare. No real hardship for trying it out. Again, I’m not a fan of liquid eyeliner but this one served its purpose with respect to adding a nice even line and, you can turn the pen to make it as narrow or wide as you like with a few strokes. It was easy enough to use and I like the rich brown color.
Like any lash enhancement serum, it takes a month or more to see any results in terms of lash lengthening or volume enhancement. While I did notice a wee bit of attempted lengthening of my lashes after about five weeks or so, I don’t think it worked quite as well as the lash serum I have tried in the past but there was definitely a slight different. Personally, it was not enough to make me give up my preferred eyeliner formulations or to inspire me to return to daily makeup application. But for someone who is going to wear a made-up face everyday anyway, including a liquid eyeliner look, this is definitely a much more affordable means of trying to improve your lash mane than the traditional nighttime use serums.
Despite their cruelty-free status, I don’t have any other Physician’s Formula products in my arsenal although I have had one or two products in the past. They seem to make a good product for the money and a gal or guy on a budget, who is also animal friendly, can appreciate that. If you are looking for alternatives to more expensive lash serums, this is definitely worth a try.
As always, live a beautiful life.
