Hello! We NEED to talk about one of my latest obsession. Yes, it is an obsession. The Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip & Cheek Creamy Oils ($18) are simply amazing. I have two shades: Everlasting Honey, and Timeless Coral.
Hydrating, nourishing, and argan oil-infused, this tinted treatment starts as a cream and melts into an oil for a pop of natural-looking, never-greasy color. The formula is 97 percent natural and petroleum-free. Ideal for use on all skin types and all skin tones, this product is made for those looking for a pop of dewy, natural color on lips and cheeks.
I don’t know about you, but very rarely can I wear multi-tasking cheek/lip products on my lips. They are almost ALWAYS too dry. I’m happy to report that these are not dry, and I actually can wear them on my lips without drying them out, because they are quite hydrating. Still, my preference is definitely wearing them as blush. They are super easy to blend and very pigmented.
I have been using the MAC Oval 6 brush to apply these, which works great; a stippling brush is what Sephora recommended to use. The lip & cheek oils come in a squeeze tube, so it’s very easy to control how much comes out. You may want to give the tube a little shake before using, just in case the oil separates.
Everlasting Honey & Timeless Coral
Everlasting Honey is described as “rosy nude”, while Timeless Coral is described as “vibrant warm coral”. I love both shades and would like to get Always Cherry too!
I don’t find them as long lasting as the watercolor cheek gelees from Josie Maran, but they still wear for most of the day. I like how easy it is to reapply and build on them too. I also appreciate that the oil doesn’t break up my foundation.
These are amazing and definitely worth a try if you have normal to dry skin. For oily skin, I would say “proceed with caution” since these are an oil product; you can always get a sample and test it out! 🙂
Have you tried these yet?
