Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation with Brush
I looked like an orange!
I am truly surprised by all the positive reviews. I use Josie Maran's argan oil at night and it's terrific. So I was really looking forward to this foundation. I have a medium olive complexion with very well behaved skin and after my first application, it looked like I'd smeared on the cheapest of the cheap tanning solution. My face was orange! I tried it again the next day....and a student commented "how orange" my face looked. That's what it took for me to get it right back into its box and return it ASAP.
could have been my answer
I bought this in tsv but it doesn't reach the color of my skin, in fact it stays almost ashy in color. If this would have matched my skin I would have given it a 4 because it still doesn't hide imperfections. I'm glad it worked for some. I might give the dark shade a try although I'm almost considered fair in complexion.
LOVE THIS FOUNDATION
I am a 68 year old woman, who, for years, have not used a foundation, decided to try this product and I LOVE it', it is by far the best I have ever used, it looks flawless on my skin. Thank you Josie Maran for such a wonderful product. I will purchase again and again!!!
This foundation is very light and turns orange , not worth the price or the money to ship back! Same as the store bought changing foundation that I bought at Walmart for a fraction of the price. Very unhappy!
Light and easy to use
I received this foundation in a TSV kit. I ordered the light/medium and the color is just right. When you first put it on it is like a white cream. I only had to use 1 pump for my entire face. You do have to keep smoothing it onto your skin with the brush until it doesn't look streeky, but once it is on the color matches your skin tone and it feels like you don't have anything on which is the way I like to wear foundation. I would order this again. .
Foundation goes on smooth at first, but sets into the lines on face making you look older and made my face very dry and cracked, break outs. Sorry, had to send product back. Need to have a travel case or something to put the brush in to keep it clean. Just saying.
First let me say that I am not a foundation user - I do not use them and hated any I have tried over the years. I purchased a recent TSV and this foundation was part of a kit so I decided to give it a try. What did I have to lose? I wanted the other products in the kit even if I gave this foundation away. I love this product and have used it every day since receiving it. I don't look like I have any foundation on - my skin just looks great. This foundation does not settle in fine lines or wrinkles (I have both!) which was my main complaint about all other foundations I've tried. I would recommend Matchmaker to anyone who wants something very light and really invisible but looking to cover imperfections that most of us have as we start to age. I really love this stuff and can't say enough good things about it!!!!!!!!!!!
Fresh and Fun!
I really wasn't sure if I'd like this or not--I have been using the It Cosmetics CC cream and loving the full coverage although sometimes I just don't feel like having anything heavy on so I decided to give this a try. I love the way if feels and it covers just enough to make you look better without being too made up looking. It leaves my face feeling so soft and I like the benefits of argan oil and it doesn't feel greasy or waxy.
Great on even skin tone
This foundation will only even out your skin tone. If you have a lot to cover like pimple scar, frackle etc, this will not cover those spots but will even out to have a better skin tone. I love this because I don't have much spots to cover but this gives me a natural look.
Maybe I have the shade wrong, but it looks chalky or powdery on the face. I like the idea of matchmaking but I don't use it because of the final look, like white powder was put on top of my makeup.
Best Foundation Ever!
I have used so many foundations and this is by far the best. I have gone without foundation because I felt like I actually looked better without. With this foundation, my skin feels so soft and looks flawless. I don't even need concealer. I also use her blush stick which is a perfect compliment. Love this stuff!!
LOVE The Feel - Favorite Foundation
This is my Favorite foundation. It feels so good on the skin. I LOVE the way this foundation feels, and it feels great all day. LOVE THIS FOUNDATION. Have found that I need to use Light/Fair in this or it goes orange.... just so you know, I have never ever been a light, I have always always been medium, but not in this, in medium it turns towards orange. So ladies worth a try but go a shade lighter than you normally would. This foundation does not offer a lot of coverage so I use tarte clay full coverage as a base for coverage on the areas that I need. Also, I find that applying with my fingers I use one pump but if I use the brush I use 3 pumps. It goes on great either way, it just lasts much longer without the brush. (oh, and I have used this foundation for years!)
