Everyone wishes that they could wake up every morning to look naturally amazing.  However, most of us aren’t that fortunate when it comes to perfection.  Thus, it always helps to have great skin care and cosmetics that can transform us from blah to beautiful like Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundations that PR sent for this review.

All the skin care benefits this particular foundation has with argan oil, shea butter, aloe, vitamin E, squalane, rapeseed, blueberry fruit extract among its other ingredients along with raw pigments for complete healthy coverage really appealed to me.

Here is Dynamic (left) and Euphoric (right) before blending.
The line has 14 shades that include the lightest, being Dynamic (fair with neutral undertones) and Euphoric (light with neutral undertones) that I was sent.  The colorful 1-oz. bottle retails for $45 and has a pump dispenser, which I also loved to find to keep the product more sanitary than sticking a finger inside that could introduce potential bacteria. 

This is not a thick, but a noticeably thinner, fluidly formula with an oily consistency. The pump can dispense too much if you’re not careful so press lightly. You don’t need to use all that much to get nice luminous coverage.

I blended the swatches here (Dynamic is one the left with Euphoric on the right).


As to the colors, I am only familiar with the two shades that arrived.  I am fair to light, depending on the brand with warm undertones.  Dynamic has a whitish cast to the pale beige that was a bit too ghostly for my complexion.  On the other hand, Euphoric, the darker shade I received had more orange to the beige than I expected for a light with neutral undertones and was too dark with my coloring.  The remedy I found was mixing a few drops of both together to customize my own blend of a foundation shade. 

While the colors may be somewhat off than we’re used to, this foundation not only helped smooth over all my pores and gave my dry complexion a glow with a dewy finish while also continuing to beautify my skin after removing it.  My skin looked more refined and void of pores, which impressed me.

If you are in the market for a new foundation, then you might want to check out Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation.  My only advice is you may want to order two close shades, a lighter shade to your normal shade to customize the color.
