Josie Maran Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss Review

From the Josie Maran website

As an actress, supermodel, and long-time cosmetics muse, the name Josie Maran is synonymous with beauty. In her successful career that spans over a decade, Maran has served as spokesperson for some of the most popular brands in the world. But aside from the high fashion lifestyle she leads (shooting magazine covers, music videos, commercials and feature films–just to name a few), Maran is hardly your typical glamour girl. In fact, she didn't even wear makeupwhen she first started modeling.

 Throughout her career, Maran has worked with many world-famous makeup artists and paid close attention to their techniques. She's learned about the transformative power of makeup: a little can go a long way, what works and what doesn't, and which ingredients to seek out and which to avoid.

As a truly natural beauty, Maran realized there was something missing in the world of makeup. Existing eco-friendly, natural beauty products lacked the sophistication and level of luxury she craved. It was hard to find luxurious products that were pure, gentle, nontoxic, eco-friendly–and sophisticated. Maran thought if she sought out products that met these high standards, then other women concerned with their health and the earth must want them too. So Josie MaranCosmetics was born.

 Every element, from the packaging to the makeup shades, is a reflection of her unique sensibility, which is always dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. Maran has partnered with many organizations, such as the National Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, Teens for Safe Cosmetics, Global Green USA, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and City of Hope.

Since launching her line, Maran's success has been recognized with multiple awards from national publications, websites, and foundations. But the busy mom's work is never done. As Maran likes to say, "I'm going to change the world one lipstick at a time."

“I believe in balance.

I believe that doing the right thing can be glamorous.

I believe in beauty without the baggage.”

I love the story behind Josie Maran Cosmetics. A lot of women (including myself) just don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to the ingredients in their beauty products.  It's wonderful to know that Josie Maran cared enough to come up with a nontoxic, eco-friendly cosmetic line that she could be proud of and we could be proud to wear.

The one thing that intrigued me about this lip gloss is the active ingredient, Argan Oil.  I've been hearing a lot of about Argan Oil, lately, whether it be in lip gloss or hair serum.  Argan Oil, in this lip gloss, infuses your lips with powerful antioxidants to fight aging and environmental damage.  As I get older, I find myself becoming more and more interested in cosmetics that help to fight off those dreadful signs of aging.

I was given the opportunity to review the Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Brilliance.  Brilliance is a sheer shimmering light pink. A nice soft pink that goes with any complexion.  You can go with a nice smokey eye and a nice soft pink lip; you could also go natural all over.  Either way, this is a beautiful soft color for everyday wear, day or night.  My lips have little to no color and this lip gloss imparts magnificent shine with a splash of gorgeous, shimmering pink. This is definitely a must have in your make-up bag!

I have tons of lip glosses but none of them have felt as luscious, on my lips, as this one.  My lips felt so moisturized and once it completely wore off I noticed how soft, and still moisturized, my lips were.  I was very impressed, to say the least!
