I’m in love. I read about Josie Maran’s Argan Color Stick while blog hopping not that long ago (I can’t for the life of me remember where, but if it was your blog, let me know!) and immediately put it on my Need to Try list.

I’m a sucker for multipurpose products, so when I read that it can be used on lips and cheeks (or even eyes if you’re feeling adventurous) I was intrigued. Add to that the fact that it’s gentle, eco-friendly, and helps women’s cooperative programs in Morocco, and I was completely sold.

When I found myself with a gift card to Sephora burning a hole in my pocket (thanks Maura!), it was at the top of my list of products to buy.

At $22 for .55 oz of product, it was definitely a little pricier than  my typical makeup purchase (I’m generally a drug store makeup girl). It’s fragrance free but has a sort of strange scent, which I’m assuming is a combination of beeswax, cocoa and some of the oils used in it.

The smell doesn’t linger though and I almost completely forgot about it once I put it on. It’s smooth and creamy and dewy looking and leaves your skin with a very natural looking glow.

I bought it in Petal Pink, which is a light and rosy color. I used it on my cheeks and lips and immediately felt like it made me look a little more fresh and awake (something which is completely necessary after only getting a few hours of sleep).

I definitely plan on keeping this one in my beauty product rotation–even if it means using it sparingly since I’m so cheap! 🙂
