So when I posted my holiday gift list for the green beauty I got a ton of feedback and a lot of interest especially in the Josie Maran Winter Dreams Color Collection Set, so I thought I would do a quick little review on my thoughts and what the set includes! The focus of Josie Maran Cosmetics is Argan Oil, it is the main ingredient in almost all of her produtcts. Argan Oil is said to hydrate, balance, repair and replenish hair, skin, fine lines, you name it! After using this cute little set for over a week now I have to say I’m very impressed with everything and highly recommend this for a gift…..or to treat yourself with some argan love!
100% Pure Argan Oil Light: Ok so I haven’t used this on my face yet because I am loving my skin right now and I don’t want to disrupt it BUT I have used it on my hair and I LOVE it. This is a super multi-use product and a little goes a long way! The main difference of the Light Argan vs. the Regular is that the Light is a featherweight version and will give you more of a matte finish, I would recommend this for those with combination/problematic skin who want to give Argan Oil a try for the first time. There are NO filler oils, parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances or phlalates in this little beauty.
Argan Black Oil Mascara: This is my new favorite mascara, hands down. I LOVE this. It’s super black, doesn’t flake or run and the brush is a large 5 ball brush to give you super full lashes! Infused with black mineral pigments and bamboo to stregthen lashes, this baby is a natural beauty lovers dream! I will be purchasing full size when this runs out! A great find from this set!
Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in “Rio de Rose Gold”: This eyeshadow is really unique and may be intimidating at first but I actually really like it. It is made with 50% coconut water and another layer of argan-infused mineral pigments. The idea behind this product is to actually give your eye area more hydration and create a more youthful appearance. My only complaint is that its VERY metallic so use sparingly. I actually use this as a highlighter in the tear ducts and high points of cheekbones and it’s lovely! The set includes a full-size eyeshadow which is an awesome value!!
Argan Infinity Lip & Cheek Creamy Oil in “Limitless Pink”: Again, this little gem is infused with Argan Oil and meant to nourish and hyrdate along with giving your lips and cheeks a pretty and wearable rosy pink tint! I have no complaints, it’s a simple product that is nice for a quick out the door look! NO petroleum, parabens, sulfates or phlalates in this either!
Argan Illuminizer: Ok beauties this one is the game changer! Also infused with Argan and Vitamin E, this baby gives you a true airbrushed, glowy, 8 hours of sleep look! It has a gorgeous bronzy, champagne glimmer and SO many uses. I like to mix it with my moisturizer or foundation, but you can also highlight with it or mix with your body lotion as well! LOVE this stuff!
I hope this review helped you beauties decide if this is worth a purchase or not! I personally love it and with a retail price of $34 (Value:$69) this is a steal! Not to mention I’m obsessed with the dreamcatcher packaging!! Find the Winter Dreams Color Collection at http://www.sephora.com
