Take a look!
I’m going to say that Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Blush is a lovely blush formula but doesn’t quite exactly work the way it is supposed to. The argan oil infused formula is available in a Fair/Light, Light/Medium, and Medium/Dark color selection. Each color was developed with special pigments that give your skin tone a perfect naturally rosy flush. Rosy? No. Earthy yes. I purchased the Light/Medium as I was worried the Fair/Light would be too sheer for me.
The blush comes housed in a rose gold compact and comes with a soft powder brush for application. At the moment the duo is available exclusively at QVC but I imagine when the product gets a worldwide launch they will discontinue packaging the brush with it. The brush is quite nice with soft, shed-free bristles however, I find the handle a little scratchy and weird. It feels like it might give me a splinter or something! I also dislike how floppy the bristles are as I require a denser brush for blush application myself.
This is a slightly misleading product as they promote it as a natural rosy flush but it goes on as more of an orange-y peach shade. It’ll reflect more orange or more peach based on your undertones but there is no rose or pink here. On the upside the color is rather pretty…it’s quite pigmented with a soft, silky easy to blend formula and a thinner satin formula. It wears for a solid ten hours on my cheeks without an hiccup.
Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Blush is a nice blush with excellent pigment and a lovely formula. However, there isn’t a lot here that sets it back from any other shade of peachy orange-y blush I own. It’s a little misleading with the color adapting formula and also the promise of a natural flush. This is definitely a blush that makes itself known on cheeks.
Your perfect shade of blush? Not necessarily. I mean I think I look nice in peach but if you’re purchasing this in the hopes it’ll be your perfect custom shade or change to your custom shade, well, that isn’t quite accurate.
It’s available now at QVC.com.
