Josie Maran Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon Review

IMBB Sponsored Product Review

Product Description:

A hydrating, ultra creamy, full-coverage concealer.  This deeply hydrating, never-cakey, buildable, color-correcting concealer forgives all skin sins—dark circles, blemishes, and uneven pigment—without masking your face. Creamy, blendable, and luminous, it comes with a self-sharpening, twist-up tip so you’ll always be on-point.

It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

What else you need to know:

“As a kid, I had one of those giant boxes of crayons with the built-in sharpener. I loved coloring (especially outside the lines!), but when I tried to sharpen my crayons, the points broke off. No more! My Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon sharpens itself when you twist it. It’s a superportable, superblendable, superhydrating, Argan Oil-infused, full coverage concealer.” –Josie Maran

Packaging:

The Josie Maran concealer crayon comes in a light mauve colored tube with a resealable lid. I like that the packaging is in crayon form, that way it is easier for application by applying it directly to the face without needing a brush to pick up the product. I love that it does not require any sharpening, it is a twist-up crayon. You simply twist up the product by turning the bottom end.

My Experience with Josie Maran Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon:

When I went to go buy this product, I had a hard time finding the perfect shade match for my skin. They have about 6 different shades and I picked up the shade: Light 1, which is the second lightest shade in the bunch. Light 1 seemed a bit light for my skin but the next shade over, Light 2, was way too dark for my skin. Therefore, I went with the Light 1 shade and it turned out to match pretty decently. I just have to apply a finishing powder for it to look natural enough.

The first thing I really liked about this product was that it is natural and organic. It does not contain harmful ingredients, no parabens and sulfates. I personally have sensitive skin, so when I see products like these, it makes me want to buy it right away. Let me start off by explaining my skin type. I have normal to dry skin, but mostly it depends on the weather. Since it is winter time at the moment, my skin tends to be a bit on the dry side. It was the perfect time for me to start using this because I believe this product is best for people with normal to dry skin.

Argan Oil is very beneficial to the skin and this product contains 100 percent argan oil which probably explains the creaminess of this product. I love the creamy consistency it has, which blends very easily without leaving streaks or lines. I use my fingers to blend in the concealer. This claims to be a full coverage concealer which is true to a certain extent. The coverage is totally buildable, but in order to get full-on coverage, I have to use a lot of product. It claims to cover up under eye circles and blemishes. For me, it covered up my mild under eye circles and my blemishes pretty well, but if you are trying to cover up a pimple, or acne, then you might have a problem. Recently, I got a small zit near my chin area and I used this concealer to cover it up. It did hide the redness of the pimple, but I felt it made my pimple more obvious, and made it stand out even more. The area of my chin looked very cakey that I had to take it off and switch to my other Revlon concealer. This concealer does very well for blemishes and other such discoloration, but definitely not a product you would want to apply on top of any kind of pimple.

The staying power is pretty good too. I applied this product around 8 a.m. and when I came back home at 6 p.m., I still had very decent coverage on my face. Mind you though, I had applied finishing powder on my face for my makeup to stay put. I once tried on this concealer without any finishing powder and I had to retouch my face after 4 hours. I think people with oily skin should skip this product because this product is too creamy in itself and I do not suppose it will last long on oily skin types. Also, since this color is a tad bit light for me, it works AMAZING as a highlighter!

It brightens up my under eyes so well that I have even received a few compliments because people actually noticed the difference on my face. Overall, I believe this concealer is just beyond amazing! I am glad I picked this up! For the ingredients it contains and the coverage it gives, I believe this is totally worth the price.

I have a lot of blemishes and my skin is oily as well :( I definetly can’t use this product. But, I have been using Very Me Cover Up Concealer by Oriflame and it has tee tree oil extracts which help me cover up my blemishes and controls oil on my face. It gives me great coverage all over my face. It has become my on the go make up product i just love. I suggest it to everyone with oily or combinations skin to try it.
