This is a review for Josie Maran’s Argan Blend Concealer. My color is the lightest shade–”Sand.” The concealer also comes in two darker shades: Suede and Chestnut. You can purchase this concealer duo at Sephora or online at josiemarancosmetics.com for $28.00.
This unique two-shade Argan Blend Concealer provides long lasting and repairing coverage that hides all imperfections while hydrating the skin with Josie’s signature ingredient, Organic Argan Oil. Dual shades work together to correct and conceal flaws and highlight skin tone, helping women address the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and discoloration, while concealing dark circles, blemishes, age spots, and redness.
Josie Maran’s concealer duos come in flat, plastic compacts with flip-up, snap-shut tops. There is also a large mirror on the inside of the lid. This packaging is light and durable–good for taking in your kit or makeup bag.
This concealer comes with two shades: a smaller strip contains a salmon-tinted concealer and a larger strip contains a skin-colored concealer.
The formula is creamy, smooth, and moisturizing. The consistency is great for using under the eye because it glides on easily and keeps the under-eye area from drying out.
The salmon-colored concealer is great for correcting darkness under the eye. The skin-toned concealer is good for use on top of the salmon concealer or alone on the face. The color “Sand” is the closest color-match to my skin that I’ve found in a concealer, so if you’re NC 20/25 like me, this is the shade for you.
You get medium coverage from this concealer. It does a good job staying on all day, but you have to set it with a powder. You can also use it on the face, but the emollient consistency makes it less long-wearing on the face than under the eyes.
Ease of Use: 9.25/10
The best way to use this concealer is with your fingers–you will heat up the product and help make the application smooth. Pat the salmon concealer on first, then the skin-toned concealer. Set with a powder.
This concealer contains 0.32 oz and costs $28.00. For comparison, Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit contains 0.11 oz and costs $32.00. You get a ton of product for a good price with Josie Maran’s concealer duo.
Try if: you’ve been eye-ing Bobbi-Brown concealers but don’t want to spend $32.00
Buy if: you want a moisturizing concealer with medium coverage for your under-eyes
