Josie Maran has eco-chic products so that both you and the earth can be beautiful!

I've been so excited to tell you about what I did this week - only had breakfast with my new bff, Josie Maran!  Having never met her before and not being all that familiar with the line I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew she was gorgeous from seeing her in pictures and I should have been intimidated that she was equally gorgeous in person, but she's just so darned nice that we were soon chatting away like girlfriends - about makeup of course!

Interesting fact, Josie first discovered the wonders of argan oil during her modeling days when she met a well preserved French lady and got her secret for looking so young - argan oil!  From there, after years of development, she went on to launch her line in 2007 where every single product (excepting the lip stains) contains the oil.  Josie is also careful to point out that the argan oil she uses is 100% pure.

What makes Earth Day a great day to post about the Josie Maran line is that Josie tries to be as eco-friendly as possible with the line - the products contain Fair Trade Argan Oil as well as natural ingredients, and are contained in biodegradable or recyclable packaging!
Here are a few of the products that caught my eye and will likely soon to be added to my already overflowing cosmetic bag (what can I say, I'm weak!):

Organic Argan Oil - 50ml - $58 - what Josie refers to as the "Mother Ship", it smells amazing and can be used everywhere from head to toe! It was a rainy day when we met so I tried a bit in my hair to calm down the frizzies and it sleeked everything out (and made my hair smell great)!
Argan Lip Treatment - $23 - smells like apples, must try!
Argan Color Stick - $29 - in Rosy or Petal Pink - can be used on lips or cheeks (or more creative places I suppose if that's your thing) gives a lovely, dewy flush.
GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara - $29 - I love a charitable cause and this mascara supports a great one! The GOGO Campaign: Get One, Give One Beauty for a cause. Josie Maran has teamed up with City of Hope, a leading cancer research, treatment, and education institution. For each GOGO mascara purchased, Josie Maran Cosmetics will donate one mascara to a City of Hope cancer patient/survivor (up to 5,000 units). Thereafter, through Aug. 2012, $1.00 from the sale of each GOGO mascara will be donated to City of Hope's research, treatment, and education of women's cancers. Minimum donation of $25,000.
Argan Day + Night Eye Cream - $88 - one side holds a lighter day cream, the other a thicker night cream - great package if you travel or just need to save space!
Argan Eye Love You Too Palette - $55 - love all the green, browns and bronzes in this palette!

You can find the whole Josie Maran line at your local Sephora or online at www.sephora.com

Are you already a fan of Josie Maran and if so, what would you recommend from her line?

  1. These products look great but seem a bit too pricey for me. Great post anyway xxx

    please check out my blog @ www.hazzaapee.blogspot.com

  2. I'm a HUGE fan of Josie Maran's line. I don't mind the prides, because it's eco-friendly and fair trade. The colour sticks, the mascara, the lip balm and the oil are divine!

  3. I have several items. I LOVE them all. I did a post a few weeks ago about one of the quads I have that I'm in love with. The lip products are divine and the Argan Infused Eyeliner Raven is the BEST pencil liner I've EVER used. EVER!!

  4. ive heard great things about these products but they are waaay too pricey. :(

  5. I have only tried her Argan Oil but I think I'll have to try her color sticks next :)

  6. i LOVE her argan oil so i definitely want to try other products out. especially the color sticks, the matchmaker serum foundation and the concealer duos.
