Yesterday I posted a picture of me with a new lip color and I asked you to take a guess on the brand I was wearing. While no one guessed the brand 1 person did come close. Tiffany guessed that the product is a lip stain but it is not Sephora brand. Yes, I purchased it from Sephora and if I had not tried the product, I would have never looked at this brand for color, as they are famous for their Argan oil. Has anyone guessed it yet??? The brand is Josie Maran!!! Yes, I know…close your mouth. It was a surprise to me as well…LOL
So just in case you are scratching your head and asking me, “Who is Josie Maran????” Let me enlighten you and open your eyes to the beauty brand of (in their words) “Luxury with a Conscience.” The mastermind behind it all is Josie Maran a former actress and a supermodel that has been in the industry for over a decade. She has worked as a spokeswoman for some of the most popular beauty brands and now she has her own line of cosmetic products. Josie believes in natural beauty and created her brand to be an eco-friendly, luxurious and toxin free. What’s not to love…right???
My new lip color of choice is the Magic Marker Lip and Cheek Stain. I was in Sephora a few weeks ago searching for the perfect red and boy did I get a little overwhelmed with all the product choices because darn near every brand has 3-5 shades of red to choose from (smile, because you know that I am so right)…LOL. Because of my 500+ choices, my hunt for my new red became a 2-day process!!! But I did prevail with something that I was excited about and ready to try. Now, I was not sure if I would love this as much as my last lip stain by Smashbox but I was willing to give it a try (see my report card review on the Smashbox Lip Stain by clicking the link below).
Here is what I like about the Magic Marker Lip and Cheek Stain in Flamenco: The color is beautiful yet not overpowering like some reds. The color does stain but it is not drying on the lips and it is easy to remove. I didn’t have to reapply; it stayed on even after I ate my lunch (Woo-hoo)!!! The best thing is that it stays in place and does not bleed!!! OMG…YES, I LOVE IT!!! And just when you thought it could not get any better…it is multi-functional…yes ladies, you can wear it alone, as a base for a lipstick or gloss and as a cheek stain. And, it has hyaluronic acid as well as sugar extracts to smooth and plump the lips!!! To sum this product up in one word…Amaze-balls J
Since there are no dislikes about this product, I will just move forward to the final grade of 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH!!! Josie Maran, you stolen my heart with the Magic Marker Lip and Cheek Stain and I want to personally thank you for making me fall in love JIf you are interested in purchasing this product, it is available at Sephora or josiemaran.com for $19 and it is available in 8 colors.
