Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation
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..
I am highly impressed with this foundation, the coverage is beautifully flawless! Thank-You Josie for this foundation.....you are a genious!!
Love This Stuff
This is a really light coverage foundation. I used to use Clinique's Almost Makeup, but it was discontinued. This is similar to that. It is a sheer, light coverage.
I have used many foundations trying to find THE ONE for myself. This is it. It gives me just enough coverage and doesn't look thick or mask-like, matches my fair pink, skin tone perfectly. I use the lightest color, do not need to powder many areas after application.
I ran out and had to use one of the many foundations I have purchased, trying to find the perfect one for me, I hated the look of it. I now make sure I have at least a month's worth left! Just love it..
The best foundation !!!
I absolutely love, love, love this foundation. I've spent hundreds of dollars trying to find a foundation to match my medium skin tone with freckles. I was optimistic that this would be different and I was right. It's a little weird seeing it go on white, but it blends evenly and provides just the right amount of coverage I was looking for. I'm 59 with minimal winkles, and this foundation doesn't settle in lines and looks very natural looking. If you're looking for a heavy foundation, then this is not for you.
Love this foundation! Have been looking for a foundation that goes on so smooth, light and offers just the right coverage! My skin still feels smooth and hydrated! Love it!!!
For my skin this foundation was to oily for me.
I felt it didn't set on my face well enough to keep it or give me the coverage I like to see.
I'm 57 and blessed with wonderful skin. I will stay on the foundation I usually wear.
Better than expected!
After trying countless other foundations and being disappointed, I decided to give this one a try. After reading the reviews, I was a little unsure of how it was going to look on me along with it "matching your skin." I purchased the light to medium. (I have brown highlighted hair with blue eyes and a pale complexion, but not super fair). I applied it, and it didn't show up on my face, but the reviews said to wait a few minutes. They were right! It blended right in and gave me a natural glow and you can't even see the the change in color along my jaw. You barely use the full pump, so a little goes a long way. I docked one star because after using it a week, the pump is no longer working. The product itself gets 5 stars though!
Good for light coverage
I love Josie's argan oil and other products so I gave this a try. I normally wear BareMinerals as I do not like the feel of liquid foundations. It did match my skin tone after it was applied (looks white at first!). But the coverage is very sheer, even building it up with 2-3 layers. If this is what you want--give it a try! I have redness in my cheeks, however, and this was too sheer to cover it completely. I tried using the brush (bought separately elsewhere--very nice brush), but preferred using my fingers and the coverage seemed the same for both application methods. I am keeping it to use this summer when having a sheer foundation might be nice.
I had high hopes that this foundation would work. I have a medium complexion and ordered the light/medium. The first time I used the product, it turned orange on my face and there was an obvious demarcation between my face and neck. I thought perhaps I used too much, therefore, I used very little on the second try, Unfortunately, the same thing happened. If I had not waited beyond the 30 day return date, I would have returned the kit which included the foundation.
