Josie Maran absolutely NEVER fails to impress me. For those of you who don’t know her, she is an amazing woman who started her own line of non-toxic cosmetics. Everything is organic! Her company’s motto is “Luxury with a Conscience”. It is something that is super important that I find most women don’t educate themselves enough on when buying their cosmetics, but that topic of choice will most definitely be covered later on!
Josie has a new Argan oil based lip and cheek stain that is absolutely moisturizing for your lips and works phenomenally as a stain for both your lips and cheeks. When you apply the product to your lips, it is exactly what you want it to be – moisturizing, perfect colour and doesn’t taste horrid. This creamy oil smells amazing, too! As for the application on your cheeks, it does feel a little strange at first. Feels oily and sticky but after about 30 seconds-1 minute, the oil sinks in and leaves your skin soft with just the right amount of colour to give you that perfectly light flushed look. Best part of this all? It looks completely natural!
Below is a photo of me wearing the lip and cheek stain! Gives me the perfect amount of colour that I want. The shade I own this in is “Timeless Coral”. To be completely honest, it took me about half an hour to choose which shade I wanted since they are all absolutely beautiful colours. I decided to go with a colour that I never get with any blushes or lip products – it’s good to get out of your comfort zone with new colours you don’t necessarily feel will look good on you. You’d be surprised what suits you until you actually put it on.
Since I live in Canada, I purchased this at my local Sephora (of course if you’re in the States, you can get this at your local or online Sephora). This was $21CDN and 100% worth the price. Just remember you are getting a 2-for-1 in this tube, it is organic, absolutely hydrating and helps your skin at the same time. Anyone of any skin type can use this, even if you have oily skin. Another amazing thing about this? You don’t need a lot to make it work. Just a tiny bit seriously goes such a long way.
