Review | Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo + Kohl Kajal Eyeliner

Today's review is on two new products from Physicians Formula's Argan Wear line.

I'll be reviewing their Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo in Liquid Gold and Pink +
The Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Ultra Black.

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oils

Ultra Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Review

Physician Formula's Argan Lip oils are made with 100% pure argan oil. They are hypoallergenic, fragrance free, gluten free, paraben free, and cruelty free.

  • Conditions, hydrates, revives, replenish immediately and long term.
  • Transforming miracle boosts lips' natural colour, smooths texture, enhances lips' shape and volume for a healthy, more youthful looking pout.
  • 100% Pure Argan Oil infused lip duo adds a hint of colour and shine while delivering deep hydration that nourishes and soothes lips
  • Ultra-conditioning lip oil instantly relieves dryness and helps to protect against drying from environmental conditions.
  • Ultra-luxurious coconut water flavoured formula melts into your lips, absorbing instantly, for a lightweight, non-sticky luminous shine.

My Experience: 
First of all, I just love the packaging. 

Even though they show a bit of colour in the photos, they really sheer out and are virtually clear on the lips. There are no shimmer or glitter particles whatsoever in either lip product, thank goodness!

I really like the formula, it's not sticky and not too slick either. I have tried other oil lip treatments that were very expensive and they just slid off my lips within 5 minutes. With these lip oils, I get at least a couple hours of wear. If I eat or drink, I do have to reapply.

There is no real scent or taste, just a hint of the scent of argan oil.

I really like the feel of these on my super dehydrated lips. It feels like a nice treat and quite comforting to my lips, almost like a barrier between my lips and the environment. These also make a great nighttime treatment for your lips if you apply them before bed.

I like the packaging of the lip oils. They're very hygienic and have a squeeze tube with a slanted, flexible, silicone tip as seen above. The packaging makes for easy application.

Physicians Formula Ultra Nourishing Argan Wear Kohl Kajal Eyeliner

Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Review

Physician's Formula Argan Oil Kohl Kajal eyeliner is also made with 100% pure argan oil. It's hypoallergenic, fragrance free, gluten free, paraben free, and cruelty free.

  • 24-hour wear
  • fool-proof
  • safe for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers
  • nourishes & conditions
  • glides on effortlessly
  • Luxurious, intense and richly-pigmented kohl kajal eyeliner creates the most dramatic and exotic eye look.
  • Infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil, known as "liquid gold" for its ultra-nourishing & conditioning properties.
  • Ultra-creamy eyeliner glides-on effortlessly for dramatic definition and inner rim intensity.
24 Hour Wear
High-performance kohl formula is 100% waterproof for colour that won't budge or smudge, delivering seamless and glamorous definition for 24-hour wear.

My Experience:
I find that the liner is very pigmented and glides onto my waterline like a dream. I don't wear black liner in my waterline and haven't for years, but I put it to the test for this post. It wore all day with minimal wear. There was no transfer to my lower eyelids at the end of the day. 

The liner even wore well on my upper lash line with no transfer to my upper eyelids, which are very hooded, so I was quite surprised. I wouldn't purchase this product for the upper lash line as it would become difficult to get a nice thin line, especially over time due to the shape of the pencil. I was able to apply it to my upper lash line using the side of the pencil, which surprised me.

Update: I seem to have mastered being able to apply this thick pencil along my upper lashline and get a nice straight thin line. It just took a few tries. I use the side of the pencil as I mentioned earlier and it's working out quite well for now.

I actually had a hard time removing all of the liner before bed. This is a good testament to the staying power of this liner. I cannot testify as to the 24-hour claims as I didn't wear it for 24 hours. I'm not sure who would wear their eyeliner for 24 hours, on purpose anyway... well, maybe if you're in Vegas!

If you are looking for long wearing, cruelty-free eyeliners for the upper lash line, I highly recommend Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Eyeliners that come in a 3 pack. They are as good as high-end, in my opinion, and better for use on the upper lash line.

Above: Kajal liner in the waterline and upper lash line (no mascara + untamed brows) lol.


Lip Duo: I'm really enjoying the lip products and think they are definitely worth the money. They feel great on my lips and seem to condition them as claimed. I find them better than similar high-end products. I find that my lips get used to balms and lip products so I have to rotate them. Only time will tell if that will happen with this product also, but I'm kind of expecting it eventually.

Kohl Kajal Eyeliner: I think the Kohl Kajal liner is excellent for someone who likes to wear black in their waterline. It glides onto the waterline like a dream and is very pigmented. I will use it for the upper lash line until it becomes too thick to use for that purpose.

Physician's Formula is pricier than most drugstore brands, but some of the products (including these) work as well as higher end brands. If you're also looking for products that are healthier for you and free of parabens, the extra cost may be worth it to you.

Physicians Formula is cruelty-free and dermatologist approved.

Have you tried these products? What are your thoughts?


  1. I like the sound of these lip oils. I have a YSL lip oil which I never use. I might feel less guilty about a more reasonably priced and longer lasting one. Thanks for linking up with us at the best of the blogosphere!

    1. ooh. I'd love to try the YSL one! PF prices would definitely let you use them all the time with less guilt, especially if you grab them when they're 40% off. ;)
