Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer Review

People I have a problem.  I still can not find my stinking camera charger.  It just up and left.  I also have the feeling that as soon as I order a replacement it will magically reappear.  Ugh.  I’m going to look one more time and then give in and order a new one.  So once again I apologize for the quality of the pics.

I am still looking for a product to replace my Dr. Jart BB Cream.  I really loved that stuff but it was not a cruelty free product.  I have a lot of samples from Sephora I am trying out and will be reviewing as I go.

I have tried this for two days now.  This is a very creamy and thick product.  Much thicker than a typical BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer.  I’m still not quite sure how I feel about it.  It may be due to the fact that Light 1 is really yellow and I don’t have a sample of the color Fair to compare.  I’d like to see if Fair matches better.

Here are some swatches:

Today I did my "Oh Crap we are late!" Face.  I used just the Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer, same Tarte Cheek Stain and The Walking on Eggshells Eye Trio by Wet n Wild and NYX Lip Balm in Lady Fingers.

For me personally, this works better as a foundation used in conjunction with moisturizer and primer.  You really need to blend this stuff in or it can get streaky.  As it gets warmer, I am really looking for something that can multi-task and be used full face or just slapped on.  I may purchase this next year for fall or winter (depending on how the color Fair works for me) as I like the coverage when I have time to work with the product.

The other samples I have include Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm, Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream and the Buxom Show Some Skin Foundation.  I will be doing reviews as I try these samples out.

You can get the Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer at Sephora www.sephora.com or at Josie Maran’s website http://www.josiemarancosmetics.com/

Also, I’m not sure why my one eyebrow automatically raises when I take a picture of myself.  I can’t seem to stop it and when I try my face looks weird.  What is up with that??

Thanks for reading!
