Josie Maran Argan Beauty Practice 5-pc Collection
I love this product. I didn't believe it when they advertised this but the product is great. I had extremely dry patches and it cleared them up with no problem. This is a great product and I'd love to see hair care products with argon.
Perfect Kit to start with...
Love this kit, great way to try the products. Great kit to start with.
Awful scent in this kit!
The foundation, blush,and powder have the most offensive scent. I think Josie needs to let the major cosmetic companies handle makeup and she can handle skin care.I think that her intentions have meaning but the quality is just not there.
JOSIE MARAN ARGAN BEAUTY PRACTICE 5-PC COLLECTION
OMG!!! I learned the benefits of Argan Oil only a couple of months ago but have not found any cosmetic products, only the oil and blended bath soap. I happened to flip the channel to QVC when Jose Maran was on with her Argan beauty products and I was intrigued. I just received my Argan Beauty Practice 5-piece Collection and the 3-piece eye kit. I love how the colors of the of the blush and lip treatment match and I especially love the Matchmaker Serum Foundation. I am really impressed and now I want to buy ALL of the products. I have used expensive name brand cosmetics for decades and I think this is now my new favorite. I am so glad I was flipping the channels and landed on QVC that night...funny how things happen at the right time.
The foundation BLEACHED my towels!!!
For two days now, I could not figure out what bleached my gray bath towels. I know that I was getting ready like normal and had received this as a gift and so this was the only new thing that it could be. I thought that there was no way that a foundation would literally bleach out (with orange spots) my towel, but that was the only thing in my routine that changed, so I squirted a dab on the towel and it INSTANTLY started turning orange and bleaching out the spot in front of my eyes. I can't afford to replace all of my towels so in the garbage it goes. My question is, if it does this to towels, what on earth would it do to my skin. Horrible!!!
absolutely the best natural looking products
Provides the most natural, smooth and supple coverage. Truly it just looks like naturally beautiful skin. The foundation evens the skin, the powder is like an air brush and the lip andcheek just enhance your own color. The argan oil is simply the best . At 63 I have tried every brand out there and I could not belive these products. I use isomers serums and the addition of this set has me looking in the mrror in disblief. I just left a family holiday dinner and the number of family members looking at my skin was amazing, then I was cornered to find out if I had work done. Asked if it was maybe the new laser because my skin looked flawless. What a compliment. But for me, this works and it takes all of two minutes and then add mascara. Thanks Josie and qvc, I am absolutely blown away.
The serum foundation is the absolute for hydration & translucence....Thank YOU Josie. I've been looking for a foundation that did not exacerbate fine wrinkles, and I found it! I can now throw my "other" foundation away!
My husband even NOTICED the difference....said my skin was radiant and wondered what I did. He NOTICED....WOW!
The oil & foundation is light, not heavy, no smelly perfumes, and my skin LOVES it in our cold, dry weather.
Again, THANK YOU, JOSIE!!!!
I bought this set for the first time a couple of months back and have been using it daily ever since. I love it! As a woman in my forties, I have never been into wearing much make-up, and this set gives me exactly what I need...hydrated skin, just enough coverage, a hint of color to my cheeks and a luminously radiant glow. Even my husband has noticed the difference (without really knowing what is different ;-)) and he tells me how beautiful I look...after eleven years of marriage who doesn't want to hear those words from time to time? Thank you, Josie!!!
I have been using Josie Maran products for almost 2 years, but this was my first QVC purchase. I ordered this package because i wanted to try some additional products, especially the Matchmaker foundation. Was surprised that the products were all full size (great for the price) and honestly have LOVED every product. The pump on the foundation isn't working well and QVC offered to replace the entire package, but I chose to keep it because I just don't want to go a day without the foundation.
I am post menopausal and my skin has changed from fairly oily to dry and rough. Using these products along with the skin care regimen has transformed by skin. I don't even have to use it every day to maintain the results. Thank you so much Josie!
I love it!!!
I love this grouping of products. I generally don't bother with foundation on a daily basis but find that this is so easy and works so well that I find myself using it daily. I also love her eyeliner pencils but haven't been able to reorder them. Keep up the great work Josie!
too oily for summer!
I've been a Bare Minerals user for over 10 years, so I had a feeling I wouldn't be happy with a liquid foundation and I was right. I did like how it made my skin look, but it was so oily when using this. Maybe I should have expected that considering the argan oil is the selling point of the collection, but goodness, I just felt greased up and slick. I didn't LOOK that way (I looked great, actually), but I felt it. I topped the foundation with the powder, which helped a little, but still left me feeling oily, and I don't have oily skin naturally. This foundation/powder combo made me feel GROSS.
The blush stick is terrible. I just get streaky patches of color that I have to rub and rub into my skin, which is already a little oily from the makeup and here I am rubbing more in.
I used all this stuff twice last week and now have 2 giant pimples on my usually clear face - I don't think it's a coincidence.
The brush is not good quality. It makes cheap clanking sounds when opening and closing and I wouldn't be surprised if it fell apart soon. There are already hairs falling out of it every time I open it.
The oil is okay, but frankly, I think it's too thick. I could not use this on my face. I tried and it was sooo thick. Greasy. I actually had to get out of bed and go wash it off because I felt so nasty! I used it sparsely on my body and that was nice, but doesn't justify the price (even when purchased on its own). There are superior products at the drug store!
The only thing I like about this is the lip gloss. But I am afraid to put it in my purse because who knows how secure that plastic pot is when banged around in my purse? The last thing I need is a greasy Argan oil MESS in my Dooney & Bourke!
This is my first and last purchase of Josie's stuff - I'm staying far away from this greasy nightmare!
