  • Could you tell me why physcains formula has brown eyeliners but no mbrown mascara? Why is all the mascara black?

    Great question!  We think black is universally flattering; however, some of our older mascaras are available in brown.  Also Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Mascara Duo offers both black and a fun brown bronze.  Hope that helps!

  • I am looking to purchase Cosmetic Procedure Alternatinves Kit. I cannott find product in Houston Texas. I need instructions on how to order on this website. If you cannot help me please forward my request to someone who can help me asap. I am now out of the product!! All the Best, Marilyn Murphy 832-368-3337

    Hi Marilyn - So glad you love those products as much as we do!  You can purchase directly from our website, PhysiciansFormula.com and then click on skincare, or you can call this number and consumer relations should be able to assist directly:  http://www.physiciansformula.com/en-us/contactus.html.  Good luck!

  • What is the lightest shade of foundation this comes in? Was not sure if its classic ivory or another one

    Hi - great question - the shades are listed from the fairest to the deepest.  Hope that helps! :)

  • Would you please tell me what is the difference between Organic Wear CC Cream and Super CC Cream? Which one is better?

    Hi - Thanks so much for checking in!  They are bother equally amazing, but the real difference here is the ingredients.  It's all about personal preference. :)

  • I really like the Youthful Wear Spotless Wear Foundation in Light, however, it is still too dark for my complexion. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Have you tried the Youthful Wear Foundation in Fair?  (It's the original formula, not the Spotless.)  If you want to stick with the Spotless formula, perhaps you can try sheering it out with your moisturizer.  Good luck!

  • I'm 47 and have wrinkles I want to hide or fill around eyes, across forehead, and laugh lines. However, my T zone can be oily. I still will break out--all areas of face--as well. I was considering your CC cream as a primer under my current liquid foundation, trying the CC concealer for under my eyes and to hide blemishes, and I already use the transluscent multi colored powder to set. Is this a good regime to use, or should I choose something else? Thanks.

    All great questions!  First I would start out using a primer (love the Mineral Wear one!) to fill in any fine lines, prep the skin and help fight oil. Then II would apply your foundation on top and then spot treat with concealer and powder to set.  You might need less than you think!

  • Hi, I am getting married on the beach in Mexico in a few weeks & would like to know what colour of eye shadow & long-lasting lipstick would look best on me. (I have short, dark brown hair, light/fair complexion & blue/grey eyes). My wedding gown is Ivory - colour of French Vanilla ice-cream. Thank you! *I recently purchased the "Shimmer Stick Eye-Shadow collection in WARM NUDES.

    Congratulations!!  For bridal beauty, I always recommend that you look like the best version of yourself.  This isn't the day to start experimenting with trends since you'll want to look back on those photos forever; however, if you're a red lipstick girl, and wear it everyday - go for it - it will look like you!  If not, go for a timeless, natural look.  I like a simple, pretty eye - the Warm Nudes are great for this, especially with your eye color - and waterproof mascara in case there are happy tears!  For lip color that lasts I recommend doing a stain and then layering a coordinating lipstick on top, so you can eat, drink, kiss and your lip color stays in place and looks great.  Good luck!

  • Could you make a contouring video? i would want to see what products you would use for contouring the face. I wish physicians formula made a contouring kit!! :)

    Such a great idea! :)

  • Which nude wear glowing powder is best for me, light or medium? I have light brown hair, brown eyes and fair skin. Thanks.

    It's always so hard to tell without seeing you, but I'd suggest testing the powders on your face to see what looks best.  Remember you want to test products on your face since that is where you'll be wearing them! 

  • Which color of the multi colored pressed powder is best for me? I have light brown hair brown eyes and fair color skin. Should I use the Translucent/beige or beige/warm beige? Thanks.

    Hi - Great question!  It's hard to tell without seeing you in person, but it really depends on your disired level of coverage.  If you're just looking to absorb oil and set, then go for translucent, but if you're looking to conceal and even out the skin, you should opt for a deeper shade.  When looking for face products, it's best to really try them on your skin (specifically the face, where you'll be wearing the powder!)  to see what works best in real lighting. 

  • you have refunds available but they must have the special label where i buy mine they do not are they old?where can i get the new ones

    For all rebates questions, I suggest you check out the Physicians Formula website: http://www.physiciansformula.com/en-us/staticpage/rebate.html.

  • Which one is more moisturizing? The BB or CC cream? I have dry skin and I don't know which one is the right product for me. Thank you!

    Hi - They are bother super hydrating - it's about your desired level of coverage.  Hope that helps!
