Josie Maran Concealer

by Adele

Josie Maran Concealer is a creamy cover stick that comes in an attractive lipstick-style case. It has a very smooth texture and comes in 5 colors: creme (fair), butter (medium), linen (pinkish), desert (medium-dark) and espresso (dark).

I use the medium Butter shade and find that it blends well and is very neutral in color. The coverage is medium-full and does an excellent job of concealing flaws. This product also gets high marks in packaging, ease of use and portability. Its ingredient list may look long but it contains many beneficial components and works great.

Josie Maran Eye Liner

by Adele
(NY)

Josie Maran Eye Liner is a pencil liner that comes in three shades: Charcoal (dark gray), Black and Brown. I've tried the latter two and they go on smoothly with a velvety finish. They are ideal for creating a clean line or for smudging and the color stays on for a good amount of time. The Black can be used for nighttime drama whereas the Brown works well for daytime as a liner or brow pencil. The pencil is housed in wood harvested from sustainable forests so the product is eco-friendly.

Ingredients: Hydrogenated Palm Oil**, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides**, Cetyl Laurate, Beeswax**, Stearic Acid, Stearyl Stearate, Tocopherol**, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Extract*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*. May Contain: Black Iron Oxide**, Titanium Dioxide**, Red Iron Oxide**, Yellow Iron Oxide**.

Josie Maran Cream Blush

Josie Cream Blush

Josie Cream Blush

Josie Maran Cosmetics was started by the former model who sought to create a line that is natural, low maintenance and luxurious. She succeeds on all three levels with a blush that is sheer, lightweight and totally believable.

I use the color "Sun Kissed," a warm peachy pink that never fails to make me look younger and happier. The wrong shade of blush can easily make one appear overly mature if too rosy and clownishly juvenile if too pink. Sun Kissed can be described as a perfect shade for any age and hair/complexion coloration. Because it is moist and dewy (but not at all greasy) it doesn't settle into any lines, and its sheerness makes it ideal for layering. To finish the look I sometimes brush on a little translucent powder or blush in the same shade. This also extends its wear for long and/or humid days.

Aspects of low maintenance that I really appreciate are a product's portability and that it's mess-free. Josie Maran Cream Blush comes in an elegant compact with mirror that one can proudly take out in public--nothing bohemian about this item. The fact that it's not a powder is another plus: no trail of debris during or after use.

They certainly pass my test for skin as sensitive and allergy-prone as mine. Her cosmetics are available at http://www.josiemarancosmetics.com and also at www.sephora.com.
