  • I have extremely dry eyes after my LASIK and other brands tend to irritate them more. It seems like this new line of organics might be my best bet...would you say that would be a good fit for me and my condition?

    Hi - The Physicians Formula Organic Wear Collection is amazingly nourishing and gentle, but with all new products, especially have a surgery, we recommend speaking with your doctor before trying anything new.  Good luck!

  • Hello...could you please direct me to the best matte eyeshadow for someone with blue/gray eyes and strawberry blonde hair. Love your products!

    Sure - if you're looking for matte, I'd recommend the Physicians Formula Matte Collection Quad Eye Shadow.  I'd try the Classic Nudes - the browns and coppers will make the blue of your eyes pop!

  • I am so disappointed that physicians formula no longer has the liquid liner with the brush tip...everything is felt tip. I like the brush tip so much better. didn't know where to state my concern, sorry for doing it here. I have some old ones that I saved and I now use it with tub liner. maybe it is because I have yet to find a felt tip that works......thanks. perhaps you can pass my complaint on....sandy

    Hi - Are you referring to the Eye Booster with the brush tip?  If so, that product is definitely still around, and you can check it out here: http://www.physiciansformula.com/en-us/productdetail/eyes/pencils-liners/07366.html 

  • I love your bronzer and blushes but what is the best product to use for highlighting?

    Great question - Many of the Physicians Formula Bronzers and Blushes are made up of a few different tones.  To keep my bag streamlined, often use the lightest shade to highlight.  It's all about multi-tasking products!

  • Hi! I have a big problem with redness on my face, I was wondering if you had any good recommendations to help combat this! I also have very sensitive skin, so I can only use fragrance free products. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Great question - the trick to addressing redness, is using gentle products that color correct.  To cancel out redness you'll need a green product to nuetralize it.  Sounds crazy, but it works!  I really like the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Primer in Green to prep skin and cancel out redness.  If you don't need all over just spot-treat. Afterward, simply apply your fleshtoned powder or foundation or powder on top to get rid of any traces of the green.  You'll be left with an even, natural-looking complexion!

  • I purchased a PH Matchmaker 3 weeks ago in Natural. A PH-based lip-gloss with a mirror on the case and a light in the cap; what's not to love? Yesterday the threaded portion of the cap broke and the gloss spilled all over everything? Can you possible replace it for me?

    So sorry to hear about that.  You should reach out to consumer relations: http://www.physiciansformula.com/en-us/contactus.html

  • Can the Sexy Glow bronzer be used on the eyes as an eyeshadow?

    Absolutely - I love to multi-purpose products! :)

  • I have normal skin and am looking for a full coverage face powder! Please help

    You can't go wrong with the Mineral Wear Talc-Free Powders - they are amazing!  If you're looking infuse some anti-aging ingredients in (who isn't!?!) I really like the Youthful Wear Powders - they smell amazing!

  • I like quick and simple and hate a lot of layers. I have large pores and oily skin. What kind of primer and foundation would you recommend AND is there a need for a moisturizer when using a primer?

    Hi - Great question!  For oily skin types, I do like a primer to keep makeup in place.  So yes, I'd recommend applying your moisturizer (oil-free!) and then topping it off with an oil-absorbing primer such as the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Primer SPF 15. 

  • What took the place of le velvet foundation? I really like it the best. I have he BB compact, but it is on the oily side.

    Hi - Yes, that is the most similar item.  Have you tried it with an oil-free primer to help lock it on?

  • I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and I am very concerned about using any chemicals. Is your product all natural. I really could not tell from all the ingredients mentioned. I noticed alcohol and I know that is one thing not good for cancer. Thank you

    Hi - Thank you so much for writing in!  While the complete line is hypoallergenic and gentle, our most natural line is our Organic Wear line.  Good luck and feel better!

  • I tend to have oily skin and I would like to know what you suggest I use from the physicians formula products that don't add shimmer just a nice matte coverage.

    Great question - Oily skin types should definitely embrace oil-free primers.  (I love the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Primer SPF 15.)  This will help prep your skin and keep makeup in place.   If you're looking for a more matte finish, I'd recommend a powder (powders help absorb oil), such as the Mineral Wear Talc-Free Airbrushing Powder.  Good luck!
