What is it: A serum foundation formulated with chameleon pigments, a breakthrough color-match technology that reads and instantly adjusts to match your unique and changing natural skin tone.

Who is it for: Anyone who uses foundation or is afraid to use foundation because they have a hard time finding the right color. Also for anyone who wants the beneficial effects of an argan oil-infused serum foundation.

Why is it different: This serum works with whatever range of coloring that you fall into, either fair/light, light/medium, or medium/dark. It's forgiving because it will blend with your skin color. The skin-matching color pigments in this foundation give you a real, natural-looking, satiny finish. The foundation starts out white and then changes color to match to your skin.

How do I use it: Use the synthetic bristle and wooden-handled brush, made from sustainable forests, to apply the serum foundation. Shake the bottle, squirt a few drops on the back of your hand, and then brush evenly on your face.

About Josie Maran
Josie Maran

Raised in a bohemian household in Northern California, Josie Maran grew up appreciating natural, unpretentious beauty. At the time, makeup — heavy and mask-like — seemed anything but pretty to her.

"When I compared the supposedly glamorous women I saw in magazines to my mother, who never wore a stitch of makeup, it was no contest," says Josie. "My mom was, and still is, a true beauty."

Following her mother's lead, Josie opted to avoid cosmetics altogether. Josie began modeling at age 12 after being discovered at a family friend's barbecue. Though she loved working, Josie waited until she finished high school before pursuing modeling full-time. At 17, she signed with Elite in Los Angeles, and her career as a professional model kicked into overdrive. Josie quickly earned a name for herself by landing some of the most coveted jobs in the business, including the cover of Glamour magazine (she would go on to grace it five more times) and a stint as the iconic Guess girl. Soon, Josie was regularly appearing in top fashion magazines.

"As I began to land jobs, I discovered what a lot of other girls already knew: the power of makeup. I'd never even applied lip gloss, but I learned trade secrets from the team of expert artists who applied my makeup on photo shoots. I was surprised to see how makeup could transform not just my look but also my mood! I saw that a little could go a long way, and I stopped seeing makeup as the enemy."

With a remarkable portfolio of commercials, ads, and music videos already behind her, Josie moved cross-country and signed with Elite in New York. In 1997, she landed a lucrative contract as the face of a major cosmetics brand, a title she held for nearly a decade. In another career coup, Josie was featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue three years in a row. She also made a successful transition into acting, appearing in feature films including Little Black Book, Van Helsing, and The Aviator. But it was the birth of her first child that jumpstarted Josie's latest endeavor. Josie explains, "Becoming a mother inspired me to take a look at my life and ask, 'What can I do for the world? How can I contribute?'" Having spent so many hours in the makeup chair, Josie was ready to create her own signature line.

"I want to contribute to making positive change, and I also want to create something fun, beautiful, and luxurious," Josie says. "My dream is to build a brand with so much influence and popularity that my customers and I can work together to make the world a better place."

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE BEST!! I hate the look of foundation, but this is truly a "no foundation", foundation. It adds just the right amount of coverage without making you look like you're wearing anything. I've found as a 60+ woman that powder makeup of any kind clings to the few wrinkles that I do have and just make me look older (as do many foundations). This one keeps my skin looking younger than my age! I'll never be without it! 08-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Matchmaker Serum Foundation I really love this product. I've used many other Josie Maran products and this came in a set that I specifically got for the mascara. It was a pleasant surprise when I loved this product as much. It's very lightweight and nice to wear for work and running errands. When I have to go out or want more coverage, I simply just add some powder foundation. I am very fair skinned and this matches perfectly. My only issue with the product is that there is not enough and the packaging. I feel like I am wasting a lot of the product because the pump does not reach every part of the bottle. Also, I would appreciate it to be sold in a bigger bottle so it can last a little longer. 07-29-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Love Love All Your Product Josie! Keep it coming.I do have a question when will you have this product in the larger bottle?Thank You Josie 05-14-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Josie, What happened? I have used the medium/dark Matchmaker Serum Foundation since it first aired on QVC and was in love with it. I'm not sure what is happening with this product, but it's not the same. I am a light skin woman of color and the medium/dark used to match me to perfection. When I find a product that I like, I purchase several of that item. Now the problem. The bottle that I was using a couple of months ago turned my skin orange. (Can't return it because remember, I stock up on items that I like and that have worked in the past). This had never happed before. No problem, I have two more bottles of the medium/dark and tried both of them and both have me looking like Casper the unfriendly ghost. Josie/QVC what is going on with this product? It use to work for me, now it does not. Please fix this problem and find a way to allow customers to return products that they have stocked up on because they were working. But now, for whatever reason the formula has changed and now the product is no longer doing what it is advertised to do. This is a big quality assurance problem. I have used this product for years, now I have to return to the foundation search for women of color once again because something changed with this formula. I know that our skin changes, but I truly believe that this is a formulation issue which needs to be addressed. I'm no longer a fan. In my opinion, this product has gone from a 5 star rating to a 1 star rating, because it stopped working for me. 01-16-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this foundation! I simply LOVE this foundation/moisturizer!! It leaves my skin looking flawless and looking like I have NO makeup on at all. I recently had to have an endoscope surgical procedure and the hospital requests no "makeup." Well there was NO way I was going into the hospital with no makeup at all. So I put on just this foundation and none of the nurses, staff, or doctor said one word. PLEASE KEEP this coming for all of us who want to wear makeup without looking like we are wearing makeup! 01-15-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like it! I live in Florida and because my skin color tends to change this product works so well; it blends perfectly with my skin color even when it changes from lighter to darker.....makes choosing a shade so much easier. 12-29-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Ever.. This is my favorite foundation and I have tried them all.. If you are over fifty...ouch, give this a try. This foundation leaves your skin looking moist ( not greasy but moist.) I do wish this came in a two oz. size...please GO BIG OR GO HOME.. It's worth every penny. 10-15-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Would not buy again. At first I used and liked it but set it aside to use other items when I when back to wear it again I could not. It had tiny white dots in it that would not blend in to the rest of the makeup. My face was spotted with the tiny white dots! I had to throw it away with more than half of it still there. It was a waste of money for me. Can not recommend. 10-02-15
