Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation
Love this foundation!
This is a very light coverage foundation. I have very porcelain skin with some age spots. It does not give full coverage over the spots, but I didn't expect it to. I have noticed however, that ever since using the Argan oil moisturizer and this foundation, my spots have lightened quite a bit, so the foundation actually works nicely. It's your skin, only better. On days that I want more coverage, I brush on some Laura Geller balance n brighten foundation over the top and it works great. I'm very impressed with all of Josie's line!
Tried this when I purchased a packaged TSV. I do not like heavy makeup, and this covers beautifully, even on my 50 year old skin! Love how easy it is to apply and not look fake. Wish this would be offered in a supersized TSV :-)
Pretty good foundation
I have medium to dry skin and I do not like heavy foundations. I purchased this in medium/dark when first introduced. I like the fact that it is light, but buildable if you want more coverage. The bottle is application is great I prefer over a tube. I have repurchased several times and keep it in my rotation.
I bought this foundation in a kit. The kit had cleanser and Argan oil for the moisturizer and cheek color plus a brush for the serum foundation. I love this kit. I am in my mid fifties and want to see improvement with my skin. I really like the foundation, it hydrates my skin and does not settle into my fine lines and wrinkles. The cheek color is lovely and the cleanser very nice. I am hoping it improves the look and texture of my skin...here's hoping:):)
A LITTLE PRICEY
1) foundation is light in covering
2) does not make your wrinkles stand out. Minimizes your pores and wrinkles
3) you can add additional coverage without it looking like you just did that.
4) the product is pricey for the 1 ounce that you get. Whether you get the application brush or not.
These are my pros and cons. You decide. I have tried many different foundations and at this time this is the one I am using. I like the natural look.
am i doing this right?
I really want to use and like this, but it sets in my pores, and I look like I was attacked by a pin cushion, maybe it is for the youthful. Does anyone know what to do?

fist off I do love the argan oil and body butters but this was just not for me left my skin ashy and too pail. I got the light med color which is what I wear, it was also gritty and did not smooth over my skin good at all, was oily at first then very dry ,maybe I got a old one, but everything else I have ever purchased I have loved very much.
So natural looking for everyday wear. When I want more coverage, I use a light coat of Matchmaker as a primer under another foundation. Works great! Just wish it came in a larger size bottle.
Love but pump doesn't work well
I love this product and had ordered it before. Unfortunately I accidentally left it at a hotel on a recent trip. I reordered it and the pump on the new bottle doesn't work well. I am hopeful this problem can be improved upon. I truly love this product. It works well as a lightweight foundation and does not show as a foundation on nor does it feel like foundation. It does a great job of making my complexion even and smooth. Thank you Josie!
Do not recommend
This product does not perform as expected. First, it provides minimal coverage and second, it leaves my skin feeling oily/greasy; not a good base for applying make-up. I didn't want to go through the hassle of a return, and it was too expensive to toss out, I have been using one pump with my favorite BB cream. I can't wait until it runs out!
I am 40 and perhaps it would work better for a teen or early 20's girl.
Doesn't get any better!
My good friend who is a makeup artist to the stars complemented me on how this foundation made my skin look. Enough said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My skin is very sensitive so I avoid foundations at all costs but I saw this and thought Id give it a try despite high price point - so happy I did! The color is so natural and it not only makes my skin feel great, but lets my makeup go on so much better! I really enjoy this and would recommend..
