Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation
I love argan oil and was very excited to try this foundation that claimed to match my skin. Unfortunately, it couldn’t match to my skin, it looked terrible, WAY too light and obvious, I had to wash it all off. On top of this, it totally ruined my beauty blender, the foundation wouldn’t wash out and dried my beauty blender into a hardened mess. Definitely do not recommend!
I bought the light/medium one and at first i started freaking out because it looked sooo light. For the price i was thinking i would definitely be taking it back... But after about 10 minutes i looked back in the mirror and it ended up matching me perfectly. This isnt something you can build up otherwise it does look like youre wearing makeup. Not so much cakey just like youre wearing too much. Its great for evening out your face for a nice light coverage. Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation
Had to rate lower because it didn't cover any thing for me at al.it is more oily and way to light even the light medium was for maybe fair skin way off color.i wanted to live it because I use the other foundation and love it so much. But this isn't for me.
I really wanted to love this as I searched it on my hand and it was BEAUTIFUL. It's light weight and moisturizing, perfect for my dry/combo skin. However, I did notice it only seemed to last at max 2 hours before it started disappearing off my face. all in all, it didn't make me breakout and looked okay on my actual face (vs my hand), but lacked longevity. It also covers about as well as a BB cream so I definitely wouldn't consider it a foundation.

When I say I love this foundation- I'm not kidding- No it's not a full coverage/baked look but it is build-able and it blends to your actual skin tone! It makes your skin look radiant and dewy, I get compliments all day when I wear it. I highly recommend. And to top it off it makes your skin soft after you remove it!
I love how this product matches my skin tone so easily, but I find it to be super drying which is unflattering throughout the day. I am looking forward to trying this product again in the summer when my skin is not so dry!
love love love! It's such a cool foundation but it may seem too white if you don't blend it well on your face. Altogether though for my normal to dry skin it feels great and stays all day. It does come with a hefty price tag for the amount you get though in my opinion.
Review for: Fair more...
This is my current obsession! It makes my skin glow and covers dark marks and blemishes. I have gotten compliments about how great my skin works while wearing. I apply with either my fingers if I am in a rush, or a brush and the coverage is even. I will definitely be re-purchasing when I run out.
Q & A
What is the best method for applying this?
I watched this on QVC yesterday & I am very curious if this product really does match the skin tone as well as it showed on the models? Does it go on as flawless as they made it look?
I've been interested in trying this product out for the summer. I love the idea of something light in texture & feel on the skin, is moisturizing but also offers light to medium coverage. What is coverage like with this product? And is it a formula that builds up nicely?
I love match maker foundations but I have been looking for a good one that won't make my super oily face more oily and/or I need one that will help me with decreasing my oil problem lol can someone help me out with some advice on this product because I love Josie Maran products and I was thinking of trying this too but I don't want it to work against me..so if anyone knows anything about this product please share with me.... thank you so much
Is this worth it for the price?
