Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer

What it is: A lightweight tinted moisturizer with natural broad spectrum SPF 30. What it does: Get everything you love in a sunscreen, foundation, and moisturizer—without the harmful chemicals found in most SPFs. This lightweight formula contains all natural SPF 30 to protect skin from UVA and UVB rays, while the medium coverage instantly corrects skin discoloration and blemishes. Josie's signature ingredient, 100% pure argan oil, is blended with antioxidant powerhouses like pomegranate oil and goji berry and natural papaya extract to hydrate and rejuvenate skin’s appearance. This product is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive and dry. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know: “A good thing, made better: my bestselling, longtime favorite Argan Tinted Moisturizer is made with Argan Oil, so it moisturizes while it protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays. The new and improved version is formulated using an all-natural SPF 30—a rarity, since most foundations with SPF are loaded with chemicals. It sits lightly on your skin, so no clogged pores, and it comes in six shades, at least one of which is sure to suit the new and improved you.”—Josie Maran Shade Conversions: If you loved the previous Argan Tinted Moisturizer, here’s how to find your perfect shade: Crème = Fair 1 Butter = Light 1 Butter = Light 2 Linen = Medium 1 Desert = Medium 2 Espresso = Dark 1   If your previous shade was Butter and you are deciding between L1 and L2, use undertones as a reference: L1 is very close to Butter and works best with cool undertones L2 is suited for neutral to warm undertones.

Questions & Answers for Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer

Question
How is the daily wear for people w/ combination/oily skin?
I use tinted moisturizer, but another brand - it's great on my skin and doesn't leave it greasy or oily looking. I've used Josie's Argan Oil (VERY sparingly at night) and when I wake up in the morning, it's greasy around my nose area.. I'm wondering how this wears during the day for those with combination and oily skin. Will it leave your skin looking greasy and oily as the day progresses? Is this mainly for those with dry skin? Thanks.

I have combination and very sensitive skin. So far, I found if I set it with a bit of her color match compact (applied with a brush, not sponge) or my BE matte foundation powder, I don't get oily at all. The trick is to apply a thin layer with my fingers while my skin is still damp (that makes this much easier to spread).

Just a little translucent powder will do to touch up.or her color match powder .other than that it has great staying power and the longer you wear it your skin will normalize itself . In other words adjust itself. :)

I've tried a few different brushes and a beautyblender. I have found that this product isn't the most blendable. I feel like the best way to apply is to use fingers - and work quickly.

I use my fingers but a good brush would be a foundation brush with the white bristles at the top. Elf has a good cheap version that works just as good as the expensive brand.

I use my fingers. It warms up the product and you can really blend it out so it doesn't look like too much. I'm definitely the type that thinks less is more. Hope that helps. Good luck

This tinted moisturizer doesn't hold up at all in day to day situations for me. I can usually only get about 2 hours of nice looking wear with it before it starts disappearing and leaving me very oily. I feel like it would easily "melt" off and give similar results at the beach or near water.

Question
Fair Shade/Undertone Question
I am fair/light with a little bit of yellow/gold undertone to my skin. (For instance with BE I would use Golden Fair. And for Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer I would use Nude.) I think from what I saw at the store that the lightest color Creme may be for me. The next color is Butter which has now been split into to colors, Light 1 (cool undertones) and Light 2 (warm undertones). My undertones are warm, but I think the Light 2 may be too dark. I was wondering if anyone knew if the Fair/Creme has an undertone to it. I am hoping it is a neutral or yellow based.

The fair 1-creme is definitely yellow based. It was both too yellow and too dark for me, however I'm NW15. So perhaps for you it'd be perfect.

I think light 1 would actually be a good match for you. I think fair would be way too light. The light 1 says for neutral to cool undertones but there is a lot of yellow in it - I think it would work well for you.

Should I wear a primer with this?
I'm a fair redhead with slight pink undertones and have dry skin only in Winter. I just bought this in light 1 and I do really like it but It never fully absorbes into my skin. Should I use a face primer or am I just using to much?

You might be using too much, however you need too if you are using it for you foundation as well. I usually let it sit for about 5-10 minutes and use a setting powder and do not have any issues.

Which of the two new Butter shades is most like the original?
As I seem to recall, the original Butter was more yellow toned, but I may be incorrect about that. Also, is the new formula hydrating? Thanks so much....

The huge difference is the SPF ingredients. The original contained chemical sunscreens whereas the new, improved formula incorporates a physical SPF of 30! Apparently the original also had a problem with separating which I haven't seen in this new formula.

I wear the exact same shades that you do in BM and tarte and had an issue color matching this. I first ordered the fair based on some feedback on another site that her fair was not super light. The color was pretty close, but was too light and washed me out - it was weird it was almost like the fair had no coverage at all but yet at the same time made me look really pale. I did notice that if I put a little bit of bronzer on it was OK. I then ordered the light 1 to try it (in the old formula I wore butter). The light 1 is supposed to be for neutral to cool undertones - I have neutral. I found the light 1 to be very yellow so there is no way I would try the light 2, which is for golden undertones. Long story short, neither color looked that great or was a perfect match. I really like the product so will keep trying - perhaps mixing the two together as fair was too light, light 1 slightly too dark. The light 1 actually looked a little better, but I had to blend it down my neck a bit because it was clear it was too dark. I hate the hassle and expense of having to buy two colors to get it to match. I will likely just go back to using the Dior hydra-life BB cream. The lightest shade in that product is a perfect match, skin looks fantastic, and it lasts all day. I can wear it alone, or buff just the tinest bit of the bare minerals over the top and it is a gorgeous finish!

Hi, I haven't used the BE or Tarte products but I can tell you that Crème (Fair 1) is extremely light. My skin is almost as fair as you can get with slight yellow undertones - I use Fair 1 and it has works really well for me. If you are fairly light to light, I would recommend L1. Hope that helps!!
