I have never liked Physicians Formula and their products looked all very uninteresting and overpriced whether they were on sale or not.
A couple days ago, I picked up this value set including Shimmer Strips Bronzer (Miami Strips) and Blush (Healthy Glow) only because the set was $2.99!
I have to say I am quite impressed with the quality and this got me (finally) interested in other Physicians Formula products.
I don't like striped products in general and for that matter, I dislike Bobbie Brown Shimmer Bricks and I was never excited about their ongoing additions to the line.
I am pretty sure this is a nice dupe for more expensive Bobbie Brown ones, though.
These are very finely milled and surprisingly apply very well with little of fallouts.
The blush color is subtle and provides just a hint of flush that looks very natural. The lighter parts of the strips nicely work as highlighter.

I like the bronzer even better although I am not a bronzer person at all. The golden shimmer is pretty under any light and the color is never muddy. This can be used as eyeshadows as well if you like warmer golden tones.

The packaging is just flimsy and not very attractive, but I see they are picking up the game and recently have introduced many pretty packaged ones. :)
For example, I would be interested in buying this eyeshadow palette and wouldn't mind paying for the full price.
Doesn't it look like the famous Urban Decay Naked palette? ;)
