Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation
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..
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..
