Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation with Brush
Great But Needs A Better Brush
The foundation itself is fine. I had some dry spots but as the morning went by, it got better. I believe I didn't apply Argan oil well enough before the foundation OR it was the brush.
I don't like the brush. It's more like a concealer brush. I ended up breaking out my Shiseido foundation brush for the 2nd use and worked so much better!!!
I do like this product. It actually has a very pleasant smell which I like. It covers more than a BB cream in my opinion but less than a "normal" foundation which is nice for everyday use but I do need something a little longer lasting for special occasions.
Only think of Josie's that I do not like
I was so looking forward to this product. I too had problems with it looking chalky/ashy around the nose and mouth. My biggest problem with it though is that it burned my eyes terribly. I tried to keep it away from the eye area (I usually use my foundation as my eye shadow base) but if I happened to touch my face then inadvertantly touch around the eye area, it was "red eye"! I would like to try her new protect and perfect but am afraid I will have the same problem. Have any of you out there had this same problem. Did you have better luck with the color match & eye irritaion using the new protect and perfect.
I see that QVC carries (a different?) Josie Maran foundation w/brush. I am going to try the other one.
I was *VERY* disappointed in this product. It leaves a really dull, chalky look on skin.
On the GOOD side, it doesn't make a person look older than she is, as some foundations do, but this does NOT leave a nice look, either... it's a lightweight, sheer foundation, but EXTREMELY chalky looking. Makes your skin look VERY dull.
Would not recommend to anyone.
Moisturizer great, tint awful
I was "lucky" enough to get the bonus size. I see other folks are happy with the coverage, but what I get is something like baby powder deposited on my skin, esp. showing up in corners (by the nose), giving the effect of terrible dandruff or eczema. Way too expensive to have a result like that
This is a nice light coverage foundation, I have tried so many different brands that end up in the creases of my face or dry out my skin. This made my skin feel and look healthy, and since I live in TX the perfect coverage year round. After turning 40 everything changed about my skin and I never thought I would be able to wear foundation again. Thank you Josie for proving me wrong.
Nice and Light
Feels nice and light on the face. It's almost like you are not wearing foundation. Great item. Wish it had SPF. Thanks.
I had ordered this product , I enjoyed it soooo much I just reordered. Good on my olive skin tone. I was Happy with this product so I decided to try other josie Marin products.
I am so not a fan of Josie Maran anything. I find her products extremely greasy and unpleasant.
Awesome product works for me
I have been using this product for a few days, and love it. I got the light / medium. I am not a big foundation person, hate that feeling of goopy residue on my face. But this product is so different on my skin. It is light and I don't feel like I have anything on. If I can offer a recommendation put the product on your hand and rub it together it will be white yes then I use my hands to put it on my face my results are wonderful. I recommend Josie Maran Serum Foundation for those that want a glowing even coverage product. I use Argon oil moisturizer and this on top, and wow I have a great looking non greasy makeup that I feel very confident wearing and it stays that way. I have received so many compliments on my skin. I am 52 years old but my skin looks much younger I have a very healthy glow to my face. Thanks Josie and QVC!
Not Moisturising like the other argan oil products
Love everything else have face oil, body oil, hand creams, body butters all flavors, lips
This was drying not like an oil
I've never felt compelled to write a review. But after trying this foundation I finally got it right! I've tried Sephora, IT, etc and never happy. Until now! Excellent coverage - not thick, but light yet great coverage. Love it! Thx Josie!
