It’s rare that I get a product one day and write a review the next. And it’s even rarer that it’s love at first sight (or touch) with a beauty product. Well, yesterday was an unusual day. I received a few packages of product to review, and there was one in particular that I couldn’t wait to try—Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation.
I have recently become a huge fan of Josie Maran makeup and skin care, so when I was perusing the Sephora pages and saw this new foundation, I had to try it. I am already using Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer daily and love it, so I had a strong inkling that this foundation would be nothing less than awesome. At first glance one thinks that they have got to be kidding—the makeup is white. But with a few minutes it self-adjusts to your skin tone. It’s so so smart and user-friendly.
And awesome it is. First let me share the claim:
Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation
What it is:
A serum foundation formulated with chameleon pigments, an innovative color-match technology that goes on white and instantly adjusts to match your unique and changing natural skintone as it balances and nourishes the skin.
What it does:
This is the only foundation you’ll need year-round to provide age-defying undetectable coverage. The breakthrough serum foundation suspends over fine lines and wrinkles to smooth and correct visible signs of aging. The one-of-a-kind Organic Argan Oil infused formula strengthens and balances your skin while keeping oily areas shine-free, and dry spots naturally moisturized for totally flawless, younger looking skin.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Synthetic Fragrances
What else you need to know:
This serum works with whatever range of coloring that you fall into, either light/medium or medium/dark. The foundation starts out white and then changes color to match to your skin.
Light/ Medium Shade Range: for the lightest skin with yellow-olive undertones to medium skin with yellow-olive undertones
Medium/ Dark Shade Range: for medium tan skin all the way to the deepest skin tones
√ Skin tone was even and bright
√ No line of demarcation
√ Luxurious feel
√ Velvet finish
√ Matched perfectly
√ Lovely aroma
And a final note: my daughter who is a few shades darker than me tried this foundation too. At first we thought it was too dark, but within a minute or so, it disappeared into her skin.
Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation is the best of technology meets organic meets beautiful! I am absolutely smitten. Right about now I’d just like to be a guinea pig for Josie.
Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation gets 5 Blings! I’d love to give it more, but that’s where I top out!
