Well, there’s certainly no ugly where Josie Maran is concerned. The gorgeous supermodel started her eponomous makeup line after the heavy, pore clogging makeup used at photo shoots was doing a number on her skin. Growing up in a family where organic was used, well, it was a natural to go natural.
Josie Maran products came onto the scene strong. A few years ago there weren’t many choices for natural or organic makeup and the line is probably best known for the argan oil. I reviewed it here and it is wonderful. But since I first saw this line years ago, many products have been reformulated to have the argan oil in them bringing much applause to the masses.
Personally, even though I love argan oil, I’m not in love with all the products from this line. Like my issue of the lipstick feeling wonderful at first, then turning my lips dry and after a few days the tube of lipstick breaking off. You can read here about the scoop. Apparently this breakage is not just my issue. The sa at Sephora told me that’s one of the biggest complaints about the line. Glad to know it wasn’t just me.
But in addition to the argan oil being a favorite so are the Bear Naked Wipes. These wipes are a must for travel. They clean every speck of makeup, dirt and grime off your face and they are not drying either. Would I use them as my regular cleanser? No. But when traveling or in a pinch, yes.
I also tested the eye shadows and they are dreamy, creamy. The texture is so soft and wonderful. The Sephora sa said they are a huge hit, too. The other must-have item in the line I’m told is the Argan Lip Treatment.
If you haven’t given any argan oil products a try, this is a good place to start with many product options available.
