I do think the idea of “color” matching foundation formulas sounds cool but end up making us laugh a little. Foundation that magically turns into our perfect shade? Mmm always skeptical when it comes to these product eh? Almay does one as does a few other companies. In some cases they can work if they actually match your skin tone however in most cases, let’s be honest, they prob aren’t that perfect match we are seeking. Considering blushes and lipsticks also embrace this technology and fail at it, is it really any wonder that foundations can’t cut it either?
Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation is the newest product to embrace this “technology” with a breakthrough color match technology that supposedly reads and instantly adjusts to match to your skin tone for your own unique shade of foundation!
Does it work?
A week or two ago QVC had the Josie Maran Argan Oil 5 Piece Color Collection on sale. Sadly it’s now sold out but I thought I’d give you a quickie glance of the items included just in case it comes back in stock soon!
This isn’t a full review of the items. I’ll be breaking them up and reviewing each individually as I believe as Spring gets nearer you’ll probably be able to buy them this way anyway (and most are already available on QVC for purchase on their own). Needless to say the gloss, blush stick, and Argan Oil are already available for purchase on their own but those too will each get their own detailed review.
For now here’s the set, JUST IN CASE, it should make a reappearance on QVC as at least you’ll know what you are getting into!
Miss me? Sorry I’m way behind on comments but trying to get through ‘em soon! Doing my best! Promise! E-mail is way backed up as well but will reply as fast as I can. And finally working on giveaways. One winner was alerted already, yay, congrats Candee! More winners are a coming and I’ll be alerting them as I finish up my database with all the entries on each giveaway!
That’s about all my blog news today. How about you? All well? Have a fab Holiday? I’m so ready for the weekend to start! Green Hornet coming out soon, I got messed up as I could have sworn Seth Rogen said it was coming out this weekend on Howard Stern this morning but maybe he was hitting the smoke before that interview. I got all hyped and realized, wait, it comes out next weekend, what the hell is he on about?
In other news I nearly finished Pasta. I’m so damn proud of myself, it only took several weeks to complete ha! I started it back in October proceeded to get busy and never finished it and re-started watching it recently and now I’m down to 5 episodes! Gong Hyo Jin so freaking kawaii! She’s darlin’! Just melts my heart when she runs after Lee Sun Gyun saying, “Chef, Chef!” Awwww! But what’s up with Honey Lee and her McSmirk in this drama…she’s constantly with a weird little grin on her face. Creepy! Totally devastated last night when our two heros are sitting at the bus stop and proceeding to share a kiss and the subtitles went off. I got all kinds of pissy after that but thanks to mayonnaisepan on Twitter for hearing my pleas of, “OMG WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY SAYING!?” and defusing the time bomb and saving the day!
I have a slew of reviews upcoming for you shortly but anyone take note that Josie Maran has a new Argan Cleansing Oil?
Imma want some!
Josie Argan Cleansing Oil has launched on QVC and is, of course, injected with Argan Oil. Are we tired of Argan Oil yet? I say nay! Bring it on in this cold Winter air.
It’s a 6 oz size for $32, about an oz larger than Shu’s version which is $28 at 5 oz.
Could prove awesome eh?
