If you want to open up your eyes, light is the sure way to do it.  With Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Eye Love You Eye Shadow Palette that I was sent to review, this is the lovely effect you can expect from these eight pans of soft, illuminating colors.

The feel of this finely-milled and argan oil enriched powder is velvety to the touch.  Unlike some eye shadow formulas that may cake or look powdery, this shadow clung to the lids with extra smoothness and remained there without disappearing for hours.   

Anyone with dry skin like mine will appreciate that bit more moisture to the eye area from that ingredient of argan oil.  In addition, it also made for better gliding of the powder and easier blending.

The colors of this palette are marvelous.  Radiance is bone pearl shade with traces of gold. Crown is a pale gray with hints of peach luster.  Cinnamon is a champagne pink shimmer. Cabernet is wine overcast with gold luster.  Adorn is a sort of a pink-lilac shade. Feather is a gleaming pink-gold color.  Royal is a haunting deep blue-black with a shimmer. Cloak is a soft, but matte black with a sprinkle of just a touch of silver glitter to accent it.

I swatched the shades for you the best I could.  One shade in particular was hard to capture so I do apologize.  It was there but refused to photograph properly.

I really think this is a wonderful palette and would recommend it to all, especially those ladies with dry skin or aging eye lids. Josie Maran’s Cosmetics Argan Eye Love You Eye Shadow Palette ($42) will compliment your eyes advantageously.  Check it out!
