Josie Maran Argan Bright & Beautiful 6-pc. Natural Beauty Collection
Works for me but then I love the Josie brand
I can wear this product and I can't wear most. Fun and good for me.
This was my first exposure to Josie Maran products and I was underwhelmed with this set. The foundation was probably the best part of the kit for me. It did adjust to the color of my skin and provide light coverage which is fine with me b/c I don't like the caked on foundation look. But I can see how someone seeking a "full coverage" look would find it lacking.
I couldn't stand the cheek color. The lipstick was barely discernable on my lips in terms of color. If felt really nice going on, but provided no color, and wore off very quickly. I liked it for the moisturizing effect, but that only lasted about an hour.
I tried the pure argan oil on my face and after a few days started developing dry scaly patches. I wanted to love this set and was excited about finally trying a Josie Maran set after watching the shows on QVC for so long. But for my purposes, the set was underwhelming and not worth the cost....especially since for me the argan oil dried rather than moisturized my skin, which is the anti-thesis of what it was supposed to do.
Loved everything except the Highlighter
I loved all of the products in this kit, except the highlighter. I found it to be very thick and not easy to apply. I purchased the first two kits and cancelled by the third kit, although I love the cheek gel and lipstick colors (best yet). But, I can't help but feel that the highlighter with the brush was a necessary as I am still using the first one. I feel like this item is a filler, honestly who could use that much highlighter? If there is another use for it, please let me know.
I love all of Josie's products. But this just didn't fit my needs.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!! I'm sold on Argan oil...
I'm a 60+ senior and all I can say is "Everything in this collection is AWESOME! " Since I have dry skin I totally love everything. I know you said this is good for all skin types, but I have trouble with all powders, leaving more creases than needed!! The gelee ( I call it rouge) is great, goes on smoothly.... lipstick's leaves my lips very moisturized, the highlighter even helps me look younger and I use the Argan oil as my moisturizer ....I can't say anything bad about this at all. I'll be ordering more, as a matter of fact, just ordered more!!!
Foundation is terrible.
I didn't care for anything in this kit. The "pinks" are warmer based reds; the cheek color is hard to blend, the foundation behaves more like a tinted moisturizer & yet it's also cakey? Doesn't cover anything. The radiance balm was too thick & I really couldn't work with it as a highlight, or anything else. The lipstick behaves like a tinted lip balm. That's nice, but way overpriced & underwhelming in the lipstick category. All in all, this line is overpriced & underwhelming.
The BEST of Everything
I'm in LOVE! For my dry skin these products are simply the best for their category that I can find.. The lipstick is such high quality and moisturizing and the perfect medium between shiny without being over the top. The Argan foundation is hydrating, smooth and takes on a little and is build able. What grew on me the most was the Blush.. takes a little getting used to, however, it is a show stopper. I stipple it on with a brush and build it up and it looks so fresh and slightly dewy although you can powder it if you want a more matte look. Her new face balm/illuminizer is to die for. I can't get enough of it.. so hydrating. It feels so nice on the skin. I am only in my 20's but this kit makes my skin look baby-new. So so gorgeous. Do not hesitate on this beautiful collection!
I bought this kit primarily because I wanted the full size of the matchmaker foundation product. I had tried it in a sample form and I loved how it made my skin feel. The argan oil is a fantastic product and the smaller size is great to keep in my purse just incase I need it for my hair or cuticles while out. The matchmaker foundation is a breakthrough product. The fact that the application brush is included is what sold me on this kit.The brush ensures fantastic application and makes it so much easier. The brightening balm is okay. I'm not really sure I would purchase it outside of the kit because I have many other highlighting products. The coconut water tint looks scary in the kit but it goes on very nice and smoothly. It has long lasting staying power on my cheeks (one of my pet peeves is for it to disappear immediately). My only issue with that product is that it does stain the fingers upon application. the lip stick/gloss feels very nice and smooth and non-irritating. However, I am not a fan of the color in the kit. Overall, I definitely recommend.
I Was Pleasantly Suprised
I ordered this on a whim, I do love the argan oil and the skin matching foundation but I didn't know about the highlighter. Well I am a convert on that. I really love this product it gives a warm glow but it isn't shiny or sparkley. And as I am a woman of a certain experience sparkle just won't do. In fact I use the highlighter as a eye shadow when I just want a touch of color. You get a soft warmed champaign color on your lids. As for the lipstick, it has never been my thing so I gave it to my mother and she adores it. She loves the color and how hydrating it is. And the coconut water blush is outstanding, don't be concerned about the color in the pot it is very sheer and easy to layer. I bought this as a TSV and the autodelivery and I can't wait till the next shipment.
Love most of this.
I Love Josie products. Everything in the kit is wonderful except the lipstick. I feel that there just isn't enough color in the tube. There is more of the clear then the color. I love love, the oil have been using it for a while an I do see a difference in my skin and have been asked what I've done to my face. It never looks like I'm wearing any makeup.
I wish they would keep the product odor free. The face balm is great I use it to highlight the brow bone and cheek bones. You only need a very small amount. Less is more. Love Josie Maran products.
I LOVE IT ALL!
Really! This kit/makeup is exactly what I have been wanting and needing. The makeup goes on smooth and it doesn't crease into my fine lines. In fact, the argan oil helps make my skin softer. I also, love the colors in this kit! I have light to fair skin and this makeup blends beautifully with my skin tone.
luv luv luv
I am so glad I got this on a/d every thing about this kit is perfect I am 49 and have fallen in luv with this line thankyou Josie argan oil is great
I have purchased several of Josie's products and have been pleased with most of them. I really like this kit. It is quick and simple to use. I didn't mind that the Argon oil wasn't too big cause I have other bottles, from other kits. The foundation is great, I got light/medium and it blends into my skin color perfectly. It gives a nice light coverage which I like, I don't like full heavy coverage at my age anymore, I prefer light and natural and this definitely works for me. The lipstick is moisturizing and I like the lip color and lasts on me pretty long. So does the Coconut Gelee it is a nice rosy color, and not at all overpowering...don't let the color in the pot fool you. And it definitely lasted all day. The balm gives just a hint of a glow a lit from with look which I like and I know this kit works for me cause since using this kit I have gotten lots if compliments of how young and luminous my skin looks. I haven't had compliments lately on my skin so to get them, I know this is the kit for me! Glad I got it on Autoship, can't wait for my next shipment!
