I am a full-fledged beauty oil devotee and I will speak at length about how it has changed my skin for the better. But, even I wasn’t sure how oil would fly as a blush. I mean, doesn’t that just seem like a slippery disaster in the making? As it turns out, no. It’s a pretty fab reality. Josie Maran is creating makeup with Argan Oil in more nontraditional ways and the Creamy Lip and Cheek Oil is a prime example. Stays in place and gives a dewy pinch of color. It starts as a cream then melts into a sheer oil when it warms to your skin. There’s Argan Oil (obvs) but also butters from sunflowers and tangerines so the smell is citrusy and uplifting. To minimize the dew a smidge you can also use a brush to stipple on. But I recommend going full dew. Limitless Pink is a soft and feminine hue that makes me feel precious but Boundless Berry and Always Cherry bring out my sassy side. Speaking of which, someone told me that I share similar face characteristics to Eva Green and now I’m all BRING EM OUT. Right? What a compliment. I’m totally channeling this persona. Always Cherry it is! Besides the loveliness it imparts on my cheeks it is also a divine soak of moisture on the lips. A major feat since so many lip and cheek products never quite deliver on both fronts.
They seem amazing! I’ve seen them around but never try them!

Sophia, totally worth a try!
I read this post and immediately went to Sephora to purchase during my lunch break! The makeup artist helped me choose a color and I walked out with Timeless Coral. Already obsessed. Subtle, but it’s crazy how a little bit of color can make such a difference. It even makes my green eyes pop! Great find, Laurie!
Maggie, Oh, that’s a pretty shade! I’m so glad you like it and LOVE that you made an impromptu lunch run. Been there done that!
This seems like it would be great for more mature skin or during that winter (not that I consider my skin mature or have a winter to speak of). But despite my “oilier” skin, I do love a good oil, so i’ll definitely be swatching these next time I’m in a Sephora! 🙂

These products are impressive. I may try them in the future.
