This is a review for Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Lipstick in the color “Dyani.” You can purchase this lipstick at Sephora or online at josiemarancosmetics.com for $20.00.
Josie Maran’s lipsticks are formulated to rehydrate, plump, and smooth the lips. These hydrating, full bodied lipsticks have a medium to full coverage, with a beautiful semi-gloss finish.
This lipstick comes in a shiny, square plastic tube. The tubes are lightweight and good for throwing in your purse.
Dyani is a pink beige color and serves as a great MLBB (my-lips-but-better) nude.
The argan oil (along with the other oils in the ingredients) are supposed to make this lipstick moisturizing. The product does give your lips some moisture, but it dries out slightly as the day goes on.
The formula applies very smoothly and evenly with good color payoff. As you can see in the picture, below, the product does settle somewhat into your lip-lines, but it isn’t noticeable for most purposes. It lasts as long as an average lipstick–about 3 hours if you don’t drink/eat.
Overall, this is a good, everyday-wear lipstick.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
This lipstick applies smoothly and the color makes precise application easy.
Argan Oil Lipsticks cost $20.00 each and contain 4 g of product. For comparison, MAC lipsticks are 3 g and cost $14.50 each. You pay $4.83/g for MAC lipsticks and $5.00/g for Josie Maran lipsticks, putting the Argan Oil lipsticks at a higher-than-average price-point.
Try if: you’re a fan of Argan oil–this lipstick has a decent amount of it
