Rated 1 out of 5 by cyw_3825 Not Impressed w/the Finishing Balm
This was not an exceptional trio by any means. I was intrigued to buy because of the new Finishing Balm, and I figured buy the trio for $38 instead of just the Balm for $32. I was not impressed by the Finishing Balm at all. It didn't leave my skin illuminated or dewy, but rather dry and dull. The lip/cheek stick was an awful color, and the whole idea of a water based eyeshadow is lost on me. I do love Josie Maran's many other products and colors (referring to the lip/cheek stick here), but this trio was a big NO for me. I've already returned it.

Josie's Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm is the best new addition to her line! I have used it for the past week as a makeup primer and my makeup has been flawless for the entire day! She hit a home run out of the park with this product. It doesn't feel like her other products so I think reviewers might expect that creamy feeling that this product delivers without that creamy tactile sensation. Now I have a makeup primer that is truly good for my skin. It has my absolute favorite eyeshadow too! I like the lip balm but I would have rather been given the check oil that I use on my lips as a long lasting lip stain.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kelly114 Great buy! Issue with Balm
Let me start by saying that I own almost all of Josie's products, and I love all of it. I was super excited to see this set since it had the surreal balm in it that I have tried out at Sephora and was very interested in. I just received this today and was super excited.
The lip and cheek stick is awesome, I didn't know if I would like the lilac shade but it's really pretty on the cheeks and on the lips. The eyeshadow seems really nice as well, I have not had a chance to try it out for an extended period of time so I can't weigh in on that.
The only thing I had an issue with was the surreal skin balm. When I opened it up & took the seal off, the rim of the package had sticky glue all around it. Also part of the top Inside plastic was cracked off and inside the balm so I had to fish that out and along with that a lot of product came with it, which I did not put back in for sanitary reasons. In addition to that, the texture did not look like it did on TV or in Sephora when I went there. It was more clumpy and was like one big blob sitting on top of the creamier balm on the bottom. I smoothed part of it out with my finger and then it turned to the soft velvety texture that you see on TV but I don't want to put my finger in there to mix it because again, not sanitary since I will be putting it on my face. I called customer service and within one minute of explaining they are sending me a replacement, which is great, so hoping that was just a dud. I'm excited for the product but since there is so little of it, it would have been a shame to have wasted all of it the way it was packaged.
Rated 2 out of 5 by kitzlefox USELESS
I LIKE JOSIE'S PRODUCTS, ESPECIALLY THE BODY BUTTER AND THE COLOR STICKS.
THE PRIMER HAS TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD. IT DOES NOTHING FOR
MY SENSITIVE FAIR SKIN. THE COCONUT OIL MIXTURE IS USELESS FOR ME.
THE OIL STAYS ON TOP AND THE COLOR STAYS AT THE BOTTOM EVEN WHEN YOU
SHAKE THE BOTTLE AND THEN AFTER IT MIXES, I KNOW YOU'RE SUPPOSE TO USE
THIS ON YOUR EYES, BUT THE COLOR FADES VERY QUICKLY.
THE COLOR STICK IS VIBRANT ENOUGH, BUT NOT FOR THIS PRICE..
I'D SEND IT ALL BACK BUT IT IS JUST TOO TEDIOUS AND COSTLY.

Just received my trio today. I tried all 3 products and this is the first time I have used Josie Maran. I am so pleased with it all. I have oily skin and didn't know if this product would make it look even more greasy. Not at all !!!!! My skin looks like it has come alive. It feels soft and has a natural glow. Thank you so much Josie Maran for your products!!!!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by rlc54 Love This Stain Stick Color In dazzling!!
Love this trio. The eye shadow highlights my blue/green eyes. The balm is wonderful. My favorite is the cheek/lip stain in Dazzling!!!!! It is a perfect natural blush and lip stain!! Hope it is sold separately!!!!! Gave it 4 stars only because eye shadow texture is a bit runny.

I loved the Josie Maran kit. The eye shadow is divine with my green eyes. I loved the primer and how my skin looks. The lip and blush stick is perfect. I will purchase thus for a few friends Christmas gift!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zepp WOW!
I just received these products today, right after I applied my tinted SPF47. Well I immediately opened and applied the surreal, you only need a very small and I mean small amount. My face looks and feels like silk. I topped it with my Argan Matchmaker Foundation, can we say flawless. I love this product, it may seem pricey but just like argan milk and nirvana, another game changer, WOW!! I am 64ys young. I already use her lip balms and coconut eye shadows, love them too. love this color eye shadow in particular. Great Value!!
