Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation Auto-Delivery
I use the Argan Oil for my aging skin and love it. I was having a problem with putting foundation over the oil, in my morning routine. I would get "pilling" of the color, especially under the eyes. This was not only a problem with the oil, but with other moisturizers from other companies. I figured that the formulations for my old foundations were not compatible with my new skin routine from Josie's line. I tried this foundation, a month ago, and I am so happy to report that I have no problem with the color moving around. It blends wonderfully. It gives me a flawless finish ...have dark age spots on the side of my cheeks...I look 10 years younger! I'm now on auto delivery for this foundation because I have finally found the perfect product for my skin.
It wasn't a bad product, but it didn't cover my redness or under my eyes. It felt good tho, and that was a plus because I hate the heavy feeling of wearing makeup.
I returned it because I needed that little bit of coverage that it just didnt give me
Argan Serum Foundation
Nothing special about this foundation. Coverage is mediocre. Just makes me love my mineral foundation even more!
I am still not entirely sure how this product works since it starts off white and ends up matching your skin tone but, it does. It is so lightweight so you will not feel like you have caked the makeup on.
I tried the Medium/Light included in a kit previously purchased and found the color to be too fair (I've got a lot of sun damage on my face but have used M/L with other foundations). So, I switched to the Medium/Dark. It looks great. The product goes on so nice and smooth. It takes very little when applying. It's best to wait a little bit as the foundation color will 'correct' (yup, it really does). Four stars only because I think the delivery system needs improvement. When I barely press down, product comes squirting out all over the place if I'm not careful. The brush is excellent.
I had purchased a TSV with 5 pieces of Josie Maran products. Loved them all except the serum matching foundation. I have olive colored skin so I ordered the medium/dark makeup. It looks orange in my skin. When trying to send back, the same set was not available. I am keeping my set, as I feel the value is good. Received larger bottle of 100% Argan oil as well as color stick, cleanser and foundation brush which I can use with other makeup. Perhaps one of my friends with a darker skin tone could use the makeup. The foundation did feel wonderful as far as coverage. And the Pure Argan oil has started to erase those lines on my neck in about three weeks!
I got this foundation in Josie's recent TSV and it's my favorite part of the kit, which surprised me. It blends just as shown on TV and I don't have to worry about matching my half-warm, half-cool (neutral?) skin tone, or a line between jaw and neck. I think it works great! Thanks Josie.
Disappointed in the Quantity for the Price
I bought this and was only able to use a few times before the bottle was empty. I put this product on the payment plan and was out before I was even billed the second payment portion of 2 of 2! Too expensive for such a small amount.
I've been wanting 4 some time. And very disappointed that it did not work as demonstrated on tv. Never blended in left face looking Ashley. Josie things are expensive so I must return it.
I just received this product for Christmas and I love it! It goes on smooth and the color matches perfectly! It's so smooth you don't even realize your wearing any makeup.
I have pretty good skin so don't need much coverage.
With that being said, I like how it applied- sort of evened everything out. Maybe it's because the weather is changing, but the skin around the corner of my mouth to the chin became very flaky! I have normal/combination skin (not dry at all!) so it's either the weather changes, the foundation, or both.
Maybe if I'd tried it in warmer weather, my skin would have responded better and when the weather changes came, my skin wouldn't have had that phase of adaptation.
Until it flaked, the foundation was unnoticeable- just clean, even toned skin. With the flaking, well, the jig is up!
Haven't decided if I'll keep it yet.
The tinted moisturizer is better for me. Thank goodness I don't need coverage!
not for me
At first it looks great but, as you blend it in it looks pasty. I purchase because of the moisturizing property but i looked flaky. Maybe my skin is to dry idk but, its going back.
