Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Cheek & Lip Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Cheek Lip Beauty Balm

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Cheek & Lip Beauty Balm is a new cute blush releasing in two shades for Spring 2015 ($6.95). If you loved the Guerlain Meteorites Bubble Blush or products like EOS Lip Spheres and Philosophy Pink Almond Candy Lip Balm I’m sure these little beauty budget balms will appeal.

Take a look!

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Cheek & Lip Beauty Balms

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Cheek & Lip Beauty Balm is possibly one of the cutest products I’ve seen to hit the drugstores lately. These are adorable! And quite unique to the drugstore and even the mid and high range market.

Each blush comes housed in a silver and white sphere that can be applied directly onto cheeks or lips. The rounded shape is super easy and mess-free to apply as all you have to do is smile and dab or swipe onto the apples of your cheeks!

The formula contains an SPF 20 and promises a sheer yet buildable formula that enhances your natural cheek and lip color. I find the formula is sheer but it does build very, very easily so you can deepen the color easily enough. I purchased both shades and both look very natural and pretty on my cheeks no matter how much I apply. However, they are quite dry…! These are a cream blush but they drag during application considerably so you have to kinda work hard to apply them. The formula goes above and beyond the typical matte blush and ventures into the realms of being a bit too dense and a bit too dry. Thankfully after I blend them out I didn’t have issues with the product clinging to my drier areas. I simply swipe on and I blend out with my fingers and although dense and dry they still blend out nicely to a very natural finish. I guess in some ways it’s good they aren’t dewy or overly hydrating as cream blushes with a formula like that tend to fade quickly on me where as this formula wears for a solid eight hours without fading or losing intensity. Plus, if you have oily skin you might not mind the density and dry matte texture of the blush. These do have a fragrance, it’s kinda a fruity one but sort of plastic-y as well! I didn’t mind the fragrance but sensitive users might not appreciate it!

I’m not particularly keen on mouth to face or face to mouth products but I like the multitasking idea behind them. I did try these on my lips but they are an absolute no go. They apply sheer, prove difficult to build up, and leave my lips feeling very, very, very dry!

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Cheek & Lip Beauty Balm is a cute idea, a unique one, however, the product has a few quirks which you’re either going to be alright with dealing with or irritated by. Personally, they seem like a good blush for Summer when my skin is a little more oilier and less dry. The long wear is a great but the dryness of the formula was disappointing! I was surprised at the price as they are possibly the least expensive product in the Physicians Formula line of products (their prices have seem to have risen considerably in the last two years and are borderline mid-range pricing) plus they have a peel off $3 instant coupon so I only paid $3 and change for them at Harmons (I believe they were $5.95 at Harmons when I purchased them and deduct the coupon it’s around $2.95 plus taxes so not too bad a deal).

I don’t think everyone is going to love them but they might be worth checking out if you grab them on sale!

Anyone try them?

Do share!

    These are too cute. Muse, how many ounces is each blush? I would love to try these. Thanks for the info Muse. 😀 shades look nice. They look like Eos lip balms.

    • Isabella Muse

      sorry maria little behind on comments very delayed I believe it’s 0.23 oz in each 😀 they do indeed look like EOS lip sheres!

  • Sarai

    The way they are swatched on the arm makes them seem to balmy for the cheeks. Are you sure they work?!

    • Isabella Muse

      am I sure they work? I’m not sure I understand the question 😉 I reviewed the product fully here and showed on my cheeks, pretty sure they are working!?

      • Sarai

        Sorry I meant I was so confused as to how it looks like a regular tinted lip balm swatched on your arm but at the same time it’s perfectly blended into your cheeks like a cream blush. So weird how things work like that. Must be a really great product.

  • Lacy

    These look soooo cute and I think my spontaneously combust from all of PF’s new line. I’ll def be picking up the natural peach to try. Thanks for the great review

  • Heidi

    Cute colors, but dry on the lips and a fruity-plastic scent? Pass. It’s a shame, too, since the packaging is cute.

  • Grace

    I hope I can find these in the land of Ozz! (Australia) Super cute, looks fantastic.

  • Maria

    The colors look pretty on you Muse. These new blushes look so cute. I have to get these. And the price seems right for physicians formula. I hope they are available online for purchase soon. It is difficult for me to get to the drugstore. Thanks Muse. 😃

    Hmm, this one is interesting. Cream blushes always fade on me, but this one sounds like it might last, and love that it has SPF 20 (so rare to find it in blushes). If I put a little lotion on my cheeks, will the blush apply easier or do you think it will still drag?

    • Isabella Muse

      it’ll def help! a little moist primer will do the trick as well! just wish they were a hint creamier 🙂

  • NJ

    I found mine (pink) to be too drying on the lips but love it for my cheeks
