- Josie Maran Argan Color Stick (Love)
Nice but does have artifical coloring in it
The color is nice on my lips but I recommend you use a lip brush. Please note that it has menthol in it if that is an issue with you. It has Wheat germ oil in it too if that is an issue. Also it has a very naturalish taste and smell and at first it tasted like sage to me but I looked on the ingredients and apparently what I am tasting is Rosemary. If you just used for a lipstick and used a brush this would last a LONG time. If you use as blush as well it will cut the life of the tube in half. I did put on my cheeks and it is to fat to just move it across your cheeks and I got to much. I just used my hand to move some to other cheek. Color was natural. Took star off for Red dyes and menthol.
Unexpectedly Pretty Color
I am already a fan of Josie Maran’s color stick in Rosy which I purchased at Sephora late in 2010. I still have half of it left and expect I will run out of it sometime in mid-2013. What a way to stretch a dollar! I saw this color, Love, which is not available in the store, and was attracted to what appears to be more of an earthy, rich and darker color than Rosy. I ordered it and it arrived yesterday. I was disappointed to find a pale mauvish color and did not have high hopes for how it would look on me, as I have never liked mauve colors on me. This morning I tried it anyway, fully expecting to hate it. Within about 20 minutes I noticed the most natural-looking vibrant bloom in my cheeks, attributable only to this! I love the silky texture and it does not feel sticky or greasy on my face at all. Just pure healthy moisturizing (thanks to the argan oil in it) color that I am so glad to have. It has more of a matte effect on the skin than does Rosy, which is more glossy and sheer. Both colors last all day on my face, even in extreme heat and humidity.The price may seem expensive but considering my first one is still fresh and going strong after 19 months, it’s actually a steal! Smells pleasant, too – rather like fresh berries. Just be aware that it is not going to be the dark berry color shown in the photograph.
I love this as a lipstick! I love the color, and how good it feels on my lips. It works great as cheek color too, and it is good for your skin.
Excellent product and price!
Good shipping, arrived earlier than expected. I’ve used these color sticks before, on my lips, and now can’t be without one! This dreamy pink seems to have more color pigment than the rosey color I used previously. I love the smell of these, and how moisturized my lips feel. I don’t use lipstick anymore…just these! They leave a natural looking blush on your cheeks too, I just happen to prefer a powder blush. Sometimes I’ll put some on my fingertips though and lightly tap on just cheekbones for glow. This is the full size and price is amazing!!! I will buy here from now on.
I got a sample of this and decided to buy my own. I really like the color, it works with my yellow skin well. I apply it with my index finger and blend into my cheek. It’s pretty moisturizing and dewy. I don’t like it on my lips, it doesn’t work very well for that, but as a stick blush it’s awesome. It will last me forever, and I would repurchase.
