Normally I stay away adding oil to my face. I happen to have a bit of a paranoia about being shiny…my friends tease me because I constantly ask, “Is my nose shiny? Do I need to powder my nose??” So the thought of actually adding oil to my face does not sound appealing. However….the thought of adding a lovely, glowing radiance to my skin DOES sound appealing. In the interest of science and my curiosity-killed-the-cat personality, I actually couldn’t wait to try Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Drops ($48).sample, affiliate
Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Drops are “a makeup priming, holographic highlighting treatment oil powered by Josie’s quick-absorbing 100% Pure Argan Oil Light and pore-smoothing priming pearls for boosted elasticity, glowy radiance, and makeup-ready skin.” Essentially, it’s a highlighting oil that you can apply directly to the skin as a primer, or you can mix with moisturizer or foundation.
The first time I used it was a disaster. I used WAY too much. I had Moonstone Drops dripping off my face, horror show style. The second time I used one drop and it was heavenly. Just the right amount of radiance and it definitely worked as a primer, holding my foundation in place. It didn’t make my nose shiny as I had feared and yet it still gave my dry areas some much needed hydration. My skin looked beautiful – glowy, healthy, and happy. Yes!!
I also like mixing a bit of this with my matte foundations for some depth, and on no-makeup days it’s great to mix with my moisturizer. A little bit goes a very long way, so the price isn’t bad. I give it a big thumbs up now that I know how to use it correctly! This is a definite love, not a leave.
