Products:
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio in Smokey Eyes (Charcoal) and (Dark silver). These two are twist up pencils that are smooth to apply but not as opaque colours wise then the rest. The also have larger shimmer particles throughout the formula but I found that their transfer onto the skin of those was rather sparse. I also noticed a touch more fading with this formula past the 12 hours mark.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil again a soft gel based product, the shades Uzi and Gunmetal is a nicely pigmented and applies well smooth application the remains buttery but firm.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes 8L is one of the smoother shade in this formula but need to built up a bit more.

Milani Liquid Eye in Metallic Silver is a very pigment and smooth formula.


Colour:
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio in Smoke Eyes in Charcoal is a gunmetal grey with micro shimmer. Slightly sheer.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Uzi is a rich deep gunmetal charcoal silver. Fairly opaque in on pass.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Gunmetal is a gunmetal grey with silver shimmer. Slight sheer in one pass but build-able.

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio in Smoke Eyes in Silver is metallic silver that is on the sheer side. It take a few passes to make it more opaque.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes in 8L is a bright silver. This shade is almost fully opaque in one stroke.

Milani Liquid Eye Metallic Silver is a bright cream silver. This shade applies very buttery in on stroke.


Wear:
I get the same wear with all these brands actually 12+ hours on the eyes.

Removal:
They all remove about the same for me with a waterproof makeup remover.

Packaging:
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio's have a twist up pencil that can be twisted back down.

The rest are simple pencils that need to be sharpened.

Swatched with one stroke and a block of colour each.
