Very often it is difficult to find a lipstick that is moist and leaves lips feeling better than when you first put it on. When I was given the opportunity to try Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick I looked at it and thought a couple of things: that it looks like it will not have any pigment and it would leave my lips feeling greasy.
If you hadn’t heard of Josie Maran, she is a former supermodel (she was the Maybelline spokes model for years and still does many of their ads) and actress who has started her own cosmetics and skincare line. She wanted an eco-friendly line that was luxurious, gentle and non-toxic. Josie decided Argan Oil would be the focus of the line. Argan oil is an organically grown rich oil that comes from Morocco and can be used for hair, skin body and nails.
This lipstick has a 3-in-1 formula. It has the shine of a gloss, the high pigment of a lipstick and they hydrating benefits of a lip balm. There is a clear outer core that drenches the lips in shine and hydration with pure Argan Oil, which the inner core has a high pigment content that saturates the lips in color. Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick has another great benefit, it has buildable, medium coverage that is like just about foolproof when you don’t have a mirror around. There are 6 shades of the lipstick, a nice nude and a few bright colors for fun. I tried Happy Honey, a beautiful nude rose-brown. Josie Maran products are made without fragrances,without parabens, are cruelty free and are made with many natural ingredients.

I found the lipstick to be very moisturizing, shiny like a gloss and easy to apply. It did take a couple of swipes to get the coverage I was after, it did not give me great coverage off the bat. That is okay, I tend to swipe on my lipstick a few times anyway. The wear was pretty good for a product like this, I found it that it wore up to 4 hours. My lips definitely felt better after I wore this, which is the goal of the product.
