The new Physicians Formula Super BB Products are designed for the #InstaReady /Instagram /Social Media generation.

Physicians Formula has launched organic make-up products that are perfect for summer.  Designed for the selfie generation, Physicians Formula is marketing the products with an “Insta-Ready” branding tag line.   I had the opportunity to meet with celebrity make-up artist Joanna Schlip recently at the Joie Boutique on Melrose in Los Angeles to try the products and get first hand tips about how to best use and apply them.


Celebrity Makeup Artist Joanna Schlip shows how to apply the Physicians Formula eye makeup for longer lashes.

According to Ms. Schlip, the BB foundation cream, the powder and the contour stick can be skillfully applied to conceal dark spots, blemishes and even scars. I used the BB foundation cream almost every day, and it’s  great concealer that seems to cover just about every unmentionable on my face.

The products are designed to give women a professional photo-finished look.   Stand-outs in this collection are the cover up stick, the argan oil face powder and argan lip oil.  As always, the products provide value and are reasonably priced.  Look for the products online at Amazon, Target, CVS and ULTA.


The Physicians Formula Argan Oil lip balms offer a touch of luxury at an affordable price.

Here’s what’s on our summer beauty list from  Physicians Formula:

  • Shimmer Strips  Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Kohl Kajal + Liquid Liner Trio.  The strips provide a kind of disco glam sparkle in four different shades for 24 hr wear.  The all in one kit includes shadow & liner.
  • Argan Wear™ Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Face Powder This powder gives you a great finish without drying or caking, because of the oil in the powder.
  • Argan Wear™Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo: This little lip oils are look like a genie’s bottle that is small enough to carry in your purse.  100% Pure Argan Oil infused lip duo adds a hint of color and shine while delivering deep hydration that nourishes and soothes lips.  Make-up artist Joanna Schlip told us that you can even run a little of this light oil through your hair to smooth the summer frizzies.
  • Super BB #InstaReady™ Contour Trio BB Stick SPF 30 a new cream blush, highlighter, and sculpting stick that gives you three shades of color to create smooth, sculpted cheeks easily. This is a great all in one make-up product to carry with you through the day and night.  Ms. Schlip advises,  “You can use stick everywhere even on under eyes, then finish with the argan powder.”
  • Eye Booster™ Instant Lash Extension Kit: This kit will help you get the look of false eyelashes without dealing with sticky glue application.
  • Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer, Bronzer with a touch of moisturizer baked in.  Physicians Formula has amazing bronzers, but this one adds moisturizer that is literally like “but-ah” for deep hydration, which is great during the summer heat.  The Butter bronzer has an ingenious spatula type applicator to smooth the bronzer on with.
