Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick just might be one of the most interesting lippies I’ve seen this year. I’m all about finding the perfect color while keeping my lips hydrated and lip lines far, far away… so of course I’ll give this one a go!
What Sephora says about Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick:
What it is:
A three-in-one lipstick with the shine of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick, and the hydration of a balm.
What it does:
Befriend your lipstick once again with this triple-duty formula comprising the best of lipstick, gloss, and balm. The clear outer core drenches lips in the shine and hydration of pure argan oil, while the highly pigmented inner core saturates lips in color. The buildable, medium coverage is foolproof—even when you’re applying it mirror-free.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
“I absolutely love lipstick, but I don’t love formulas that leave my lips dry, chapped, and coated in not-so-good-for-you ingredients. I’m a great believer in the belief that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. So, I did just that, and made my own—a three-in-one stick that offers the moisture of a balm, the pigment of a lipstick, and the pretty shine of a gloss. Kiss your love-hate relationship with your lipstick bye-bye!” —Josie Maran
Spirited Red is that perfect “I just had a cherry Popsicle” yummy lip look that most of us lust after. The formula is so smooth and moisturizing, and the color tint is perfect! I just love how this feels on my lips.
My only gripe is that it’s a little difficult to apply. With this lipstick, and the darker tints like Spirited Red, you have to apply carefully… if you go on applying like you would a regular lipstick, the color won’t coat to the outer edge of the lips. Clearly you want to fill that in so you don’t look foolish, so you have to maneuver the tube correctly in order to get it looking good. I would totally buy this product again, but probably in a lighter shade that would be more forgiving on application “oopses”.
Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick retails for $22.00 and is available at Sephora.
