|Wearing Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Coral ($22)|
Product provided for review.
Josie Maran Argan Color Sticks are dual-purpose lip and cheek products infused with argan oil and provides longlasting natural flush of color to cheeks and lips. These come packaged in the standard Josie Maran rose gold packaging, sort of like jumbo-sized lipsticks with a twist-up mechanism that brings up the product. The product is packed full skin-friendly oils (check ingredients list below) and is free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, GMOs, and triclosan. The shade I got to try out is Coral - a peachy coral shade. Scroll on for more photos.
To use, just twist up the lower portion of the tube and use fingers or brush to pick up the product and blend onto cheeks. I prefer to apply the product directly on to my cheeks. The texture is a little hard, but it's easy to blend the product into the skin. I tried it on my lips one time, and because of the very sheer color payoff and strong minty/herbal smell, I haven't bothered using it after that.
On my skin, the color has coral-pink tones more than peach. The texture is just right - creamy enough to blend into the skin easily but doesn't leave my skin too oily like some cream blushes can. The color can be built up easily from a natural flush to a stronger cheek color.

I like most things about the Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Coral - the design is very convenient for travel, love the shade, the color payoff is perfect, and the texture is great especially for a cream product on my oilier skin. The one slight wrinkle for me is the smell. The product has a strong sort of minty smell to it, and I would have have preferred it not being there. Also, because this is an oil-rich product that I apply directly to my skin and because I won't use up all that product in my lifetime, I think the mini sizes in the Josie Maran Argan Lip and Cheek Color Stick Set are a much better idea - 4 mini sticks for $34!
