Luxury with a conscience is the slogan for Josie Maran Cosmetics started by former supermodel Josie Maran. Her line of eco friendly, non toxic, pure makeup is actually not bad for your skin! For those of you that enjoy using natural products you will LOVE her makeup. Her makeup has been featured in: Elle, Glamour, Harpers Bazaar, and Allure to name a few.
Why are her products awesome? Because unlike some other makeup lines out there she uses ingredients like aloe vera, honeysuckle flower extract, jojoba, apricot, avocado, chamomile, flax seed oil, grape seed oil, papaya, pomegranate oil, rosemary oil, shea butter, mango seed butter, cucumber, coconut cream. How can you go wrong with such wholesome ingredients! And the best ingredient of all Argan oil. Argon oil is the "liquid gold" of Morocco. It has 2x more Vitamin E than olive oil, as well as, essential antioxidants. It softens skin, minimizes fine lines, heals acne blemishes and scarring, and treats split ends! Women in Morocco have been using it for centuries for their skin, hair, and cooking!
One of my favorite products is the Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation. Having a tan skin tone with yellow undertones it is so hard to find the right shade. The Matchmaker Foundation is made with chameleon pigments that instantly adjust to your natural skin tone. No more fussing over messy mineral powders or too dark/too light foundations that are noticeable. And of course it's made with Argan oil so it's actually nourishing the skin while on!
I will admit I love any and all cheek stains, cheek tints, blush. Anything for a rosy glow! After having spent years wearing Benetint (which stains not only your cheeks but your hands too!), mineral blush (which can make the skin a bit too shiny), and Smashbox's O glow (which is nice but not natural) the Argan Color Stick is my new craze! Formulated with Argan oil, this cheek tint looks good on everyone, no matter your skin tone. You can use it on your lips too!
Josie Maran, thank you for coming up with a line of eco-friendly makeup that is easy, quick, sophisticated and nourishing! She summed it quite well when she said, "I believe in balance. I believe that doing the right thing can be glamorous. I believe in beauty without the baggage."
You can find her line at Sephora and on her website Josie Maran Cosmetics
