Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation with Brush
Not what I expected
It left my face tight and dry feeling. Since it said serum, I thought it would be more hydrating. I have some large pores where it settled in making them more noticeable. I didn't have a problem with the color like others have mentioned. I wouldn't recommend this for people who have some larger pores. Maybe I'll try mixing it with a moisturizer.
Love this product
Great for a person who does not like to ware foundation. It blends your skin tones but does not cover blemishes or age spots. My skin stays hydrated all day and has that healthy glow.
This stuff is like magic. It goes on white and makes your skin so soft. And you also get a bonus of a glow with it being a foundation too. It's just amazing. It's the dead cold of winter and my face is moist and soft instead of dry and cracking. AMAZING!!!!
It's a match!
I have very fair skin with pink undertone so it has always been challenging to find a foundation since most are yellow based. At 60 years old I have very nice skin, no wrinkles, lines and have never had blemishes. (Always mistaken for 15-20 years younger). So granted, I have a perfect canvas for this and only require very sheer coverage. This is lovely on. Just evens everything out. A little goes a loooong way.....on me at least. With the Argan oil for my moisturizer underneath this creates a beautiful, soft, touchable finish. A tiny swipe of the color stick on cheeks and lips and I am good to go.
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.
