Questions & Answers for Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée

Question
is the poppy more orange or pink?
I'm pretty pale with coffee brown colored hair so any color on my face always stands out. I look good in coral pinks, but the way it looks here looks like it is really orange. I want to make sure it isn't too orangey for my face as I want like a softer rose pink, but I am afraid the next step up would be too dark for my face. Suggestions?

It's more of a pinky-orange than an orangy-pink, if that helps. It goes on quite pink. I have fair skin, green eyes and blonde hair, and I can't wear oranges at all, and this looks great on me (if I do say so myself) lol

I am a redhead with fair skin and the Poppy Paradise is my favorite. It looks adorable on lips, too. In the shade photos above, it looks more orange. It definitely goes on as a bright warm pink, not orange or coral. Pink escape is great too, but the poppy is more flattering for me with having a pink undertone. It blends really easily over my tarte BB cream.

Depends on what color you like more. I am fair but a blonde. I originally tried on Poppy and bought it but it was a little to coral for me so I bought the Pink and I wear the Pink with Poppy over it sometimes. These would probably be the best bets for you. The others were too red, brown, orange or purple.

I have brown hair & eyes w/ fair skin and usually wear pink shades of blush. I bought this in Poppy Paradise, which was too warm for me, so I would try Pink Escape. The gel is lightly pigmented and blends easily, but did leave an oily sheen on my face & I have oily skin so I returned it for that reason. And it does stain in your fingers a bit.

I just switched from a mineral based foundation to the JOSIE MARAN Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation. I love being able to use the same foundation all year long. The cheek glee blends into it great.

I suggest trying it before and after and see which result you prefer.

You only need a tiny bit to cover both cheeks - so using your finger might be better than a brush. But if you decide to use a brush, I would use a cream blush brush - Sephora has one

I always use BB cream for my foundation (Dr. Jart +'s Water Fuse) and this layers great on top of it. I only have problems with it when I apply too much BB cream, apply too much moisturizer beforehand, or don't let my foundation sink in before applying the blush.

answer 4
You definitely don't need a lot of product to apply this on your cheeks, so It definitely won't rub bb away, per se. However, I find that it's particularly hard to blend into a sheer, even finish, so the blending process and smudging process will definitely move my bb around. For reference, I use one pumps of Missha 23, and I've had no more problems of the gelee removing my bb as I have of simply rubbing my face in the first place.

I use them primarily on my lips and the staying power is so-so. They're more tints than strong colors so to keep the exact shade I want (if I'm going for a more colorful look) I do have to reapply every hour or two. But it's just two quick dabs to my lips (it does stain my fingers though!)
