Today's Lipstick of the Day (another multi-tasker) is...
Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Rosey!
I've had this bad boy for over a year, and I doooo love this thing. This really is an all in one - lipstick, blush, or a nice dash of color whever you like :) I am wearing it on my lips and cheeks in the above picture. It is comfortable to wear on both lips and cheeks, and looks great on both! Rosey is a Dusty Rose color, which is neutral and would be flattering on all skintones. This is NOT a cream to powder finish (unlike the NARS Multiples, or many other color sticks on the market) and it also has other benefits!
|This thing is SUPERSIZED and ready to make you beautiful!|
Josie Maran describes this product as:
The Argan-oil infused color stick is a sheer tint that gives lasting, natural- looking color to cheeks and lips. All shades are designed to flatter every skin tone. The paraben and fragrance free formula contains Josie's signature ingredient, organic Argan Oil-the world's richest source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Size .55oz/16g.

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation
I ended up getting this at CVS last month, I used a coupon and got it for around $8. This stuff is not cheap otherwise, if I remember correctly its about $15. It comes in a huge heavy duty glass jar, which I like and I don't like. Obviously, it looks pretty cool...however, when you have to dip your fingers or a sponge in it constantly, this is not very sanitary, and can cause bacterial growth, and exposure to air, which can oxidize the product - making it a different color. This is why most people are fans of the "pump" foundations...including me...anyways...
I used the classic version of Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation for years. That stuff rocks - and actually does stay on through sweat and everything...
Revlon describes their Colorstay Whipped Foundation as...
Finally, truly decadent makeup offers ultimate performance. The mousse-like texture feels like silk on your skin. And, the time release formula balances skin for a flawless look. All day flexible wear without flaking, caking or feeling heavy. Buildable to full coverage for flawless skin. Soft, matte finish all day long. Withstands heat and humidity – great for summer. Comes in 16 beautiful shades.
It's not a moussey texture at all, I'd say it's more of a gel. It's not airy at all either, but it does feel silky. This foundation feels to me, really oily on my skin, but not to the touch. To the touch, my skin feels very silky, and there is minimal transfer. This has to be applied with a sponge, I wouldn't recommend applying with fingers - it's SO messy! I haven't attempted to build this up to full coverage, I don't have the patience for that, frankly. This stuff requires too much work - there's way better stuff out there, in my humble opinion. :) Revlon, you can do better. This is still in my stash, and I'm sure I will revisit it at some point...but not anytime soon! :)
