I've been using the Josie Maran products for quite some time now and its been one of the "constants" on my beauty regimen and beauty kit. The Argan Oil was the first product I got introduced to and loved the natural benefits it had. I would add a few drops in the foundation when my client's skin was dry to help the product blend evenly into their skin without caking up. Another product they had that got me hooked was the Hydrating Lipsticks. Her lipsticks have an Argan oil lip balm wrapped around the lipstick so it would leave a beautiful natural hue of color while moisturizing your lips. So here, I have listed a few items that are new, few items that are old...overall, the must-have Josie Maran products!

"Shine the light you were born to shine."
Argan Enlightenment Illumining Veil: is a neutral/beige shimmer highlight. This is not the type of highlight that makes your face sparkle! This is the type of highlighter that gives your face a soft sheer glow. This is beautiful as a finishing brightening shimmer that looks beautiful on top of your cheeks, near your tear duct and top of the lip. Use a fan brush for a light effect or a thicker brush for a more dramatic pop. Will look good on most skin tones!
Enlightenment Illuminizing Wand: The tone of this wand is very similar to the veil except anything that is in a cream or liquid formula has more payoff that powder. You can either use your fingers to tap this along the cheekbones or you can use a stippling brush. You can use it straight out of the strick but you are going to need to blend anyway, so might as well use a softer approach ;) This product gives you the type of glow that makes your skin shine! See swatch below.
Argan Enlightenment Illuminzer: This liquid product is universal in several ways! Not just because of the color this collection carries but the liquid form is the strongest form of glow. You can mix it into your foundation or moisturizer or just use a beauty blender or buffing brush to highlight the highest points on your face. Beautiful down the bridge of your nose, on the tip of your nose, cheekbones and lip. This product would be the "brightest" form of glow compared to the creme and the powder. See swatch below. So choose the GLOW that works for you, or layer it the way I do :)
100% Pure Argan Oil: I LOVE this oil! You can use it as a regular moisturizer or mix it into your foundation to either thin out your cream foundation or mix into ANY foundation for more of that "glow". The regular one is ideal for normal to dry and the Light is meant for more oily skin...that way, we get to benefit out of this product too ;)
Whipped Argan Body Butter: I struggle with body lotions. "Lotions" never work for me, especially in the winter. This Argan infused body butter is HEAVEN!!! It's not greasy but actually keeps your skin moist all day. I use it daily after shower to keep my skin soft & smooth. It's literally whipped like butter!
Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist: This hydrating mist is perfect before or after makeup. If you are really dry, mist and really dampen your skin with this product first. You can re-spray several times before the final finish of your makeup for a more "dewy" skin. It smells super fresh (a little like cucumber) and is great for this dry fall weather!
