Fab Five Friday Favorites: Josie Maran Cosmetics

Fab Five Favorites: Josie Maran Cosmetics

We all know that I'm obsessed with argan oil and Josie Maran has a special place in my heart, because she started the obsession (plus I got the opportunity to interview the lady herself)! Not only does she make fantastic skin products, she makes AWESOME cosmetics {that are all wrapped in the most beautiful rose gold packaging} as well! These are but a few of my faves...

Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation SPF 20 ($34 at Sephora)- I've been using this foundation for over a year now and love it just as much now as the first day I put it on. The self adjusting color made shade matching a non issue. Plus it's infused with 100% pure argan oil to balance, hydrate, and nourish the skin. It is PERFECT for the summer time heat, because it's lightweight, comfortable, and soaks up shine. 

Josie Maran Cream Blush in Sun Kissed ($22 at Sephora)-This was the product that made me realize what a difference blush made on my appearance. I would skip wearing blush in an instant, but then I tried this magical cream blush and was taken aback by how much better it made my face look: more youthful, fresh, and awake. This weightless cream blush gives cheeks a sheer wash of color with a velvety, airbrushed finish and blends flawlessly into the skin. Of course the innovative formula contains Josie's signature ingredient, 100% pure Argan oil, which replenishes and repairs skin cells.

Josie Maran Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Daring ($20 at Sephora)- I'm not gonna lie, I was on the fence when I first tried this gloss, I don't really care for the smell of it. I can't really describe it, so I'm not going to try. However, some how it tastes like yummy dulce leche and gives such beautiful, juicy color to my lips, I couldn't help but to fall in love with it! The active ingredient, Argan Oil, treats your lips to powerful antioxidants that fight aging and environmental damage. To plump the lips, there is a naturally occurring tripeptide that has been shown to visually enhance the lips by stimulating lip collagen. Restoring collagen increases lip volume and enhances the contour of the lips.

Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Foxtrot ($19 at Sephora)- This beauty began my love affair with lip stains. It was the first one I encountered that applied smooth and evenly and didn't absolutely suck all the moisture out of my lips! I like to wear it alone, but I also like to use it as a base with lip glosses, so that even when they wear out, my lips still have a bit of color. It's actually dual purposed: thelong-wearing natural formula can be used as a lip and cheek stain,  packaged in a portable pen for effortless touch-ups on the go. Its versatile formula has a blend of hyaluronic acid and sugar extracts to smooth and plump lips for a truly sexy pout. 

Josie Maran Argan Beautiful Eyes in Beautiful Nudes ($36 at Sephora)- {sent for the purpose of review} The newest addition to my Josie Maran collection {but not my last for sure}, this has been my JAM since I cracked it open! It applies so creamy and effortlessly, is packaged so beautifully, and basically has everything you need for a gorgeous, every day eye look. These naturally formulated shadows are richly infused with Argan Oil and a blend of floral and fruit extracts resulting in soft and nutrient rich textures including iridescent, matte, and satin finishes. 

Here's how much I love these products, except for the eye shadow palette, I bought all of these, and they were worth EVERY PENNY! In fact, The foundation is my second compact {I received the first one for review and loved it so much, I repurchased}. So basically, go get some! Until next time...


  1. I love the look of the eyeshadow palette! I have really been wanting to try the coconut water cheek stains. Have you tried those?

    1. I haven't tried them yet, but they are definitely on my wish list! Josie can do no wrong in my eyes!

  2. I have never tried this brand but this looks great

    1. You should definitely give it a try! If you go to Sephora, you can even get a sample of the skin care products to try before you buy. I love that!

  3. That cream blush looks beautiful. I've yet to find a cream blush I like so I may try this one out!

    1. You definitely should! I totally did not get cream blush until I tried this one and now I'm hooked!

  4. I have not used this yet also i want to use it. cosmetics, eyelashes
