Josie Maran came out with three Winter Dreams sets : Argan Color Collection, Whipped Argan Oil Body Duo & Argan Skincare Collection…I bought the Argan Color Collection because I really wanted to try the Coconut water-colour Eyeshadow!

The Aragon Black Oil Mascara ♥ :

I really like this mascara. It is a great everyday mascara as it leaves lashes looking full yet still soft, fluffy, and natural looking. It’s not a vavavoom mascara but most definitely perfect for everyday use. I like the fact that it is super black. I mean, super super black!  I wore it for hours in the worst winter weather, so it is very long-lasting and it washes off easily. A good overall mascara.

♥ The Argan Infinity Lip and Cheek Creamy Oil in Limitless Pink ♥ :

I’ve been very intrigued with this blush/lip color product lately, and I’m such a big fan of coconut oil. I was worried that the product might make my skin breakout or that it wouldn’t blend easily with my foundation when used as a blush, but so far I haven’t had any issues. The only thing is that I struggle to find the right balance of how much to use. Too much is hard to blend and doesn’t look natural and too little barely shows. I’m not generally a cream blush girl though so that might be my problem. The colour itself is a really nice glowy pink. As a lip product the color is super-sheer; not noticeable at all. If I use enough on my lips to add color, I have trouble with it running off. I have mix feeling about this one. 😁

♥ The Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gold ♥ :

 I have very sensitive eyes and I am usually not a fan of liquid eyeshadow. This, however, I found to be hydrating, soothing and very easy to apply. It wears well over powder shadows and build easily. I have fallen asleep with it on (happens to the best of us!) and my lids still looked amazing the next morning.
Application wise, I usually dab a bit on the center of my lid, blend over my lid with my finger, and then I dab in the center of eye for color impact, blending out the sides slightly. Simple and oh-so pretty in just a few seconds. Finger is key to easy application. This eyeshadow did not crease on me, even without using a primer on my oily lids.

Tip : If you use it as an eye shadow you must blend quickly, because when it sets, it won’t budge. Remember that you have to shake it up before application and that it does feel wet when you first apply.

Highly recommend !  Last very well ALL day, no creasing! Gorgeous vibrant color!!!!!

♥ The Argan Illuminizer ♥ :

I have use this for those days when I want an extra glow. I add a dollop of this into my foundation and mix together. Definitely gives me a natural, dewy glow. I also love the fact that it’s all natural without any harmful ingredients! Since you need just a small amount even used daily, I think this would last me years! It is definitely not too shimmery or glittery at all, just glowy. I also mix this with a body butter to get the all-around bronzed look. This will be my new go-to item, especially in the cold, dry winter; when I look like a ghost.

♥ The 100% Pure Argan Oil Light ♥ :

I try 1-2 drops added into my moisturizer each day. After only 3 days of usage, my pores are visibly smaller! My skin definitely appears and feels smoother. The best part, it didn’t make me break out yet!. Pro: very hydrating, it absorbs in minutes and totally banished flaky skin on my forehead and my nose. But I mostly use this oil on my feet, elbows and hands. It has transform my hands ! Great for cuticle too! Multi functional I love it …

I will definitively use this set a lot more next summer, with the looks I will create I’ll give JLo a run for her money.  😜

Bottom Line : These great products will last me forever. I’m a happy camper !👍

Note : I bought mine at Sephora

Thanks for stopping by
