Supermodel Josie Maran strives to make eco-friendly, natural beauty products with her cosmetics, body, and skincare line—and Argan Color Stick in Rosey is another great find from the brand.

I absolutely adore Josie Maran and her line of cosmetics, body, and skincare, and in previous About Face posts I’ve written about the brand’s Magic Marker Lip Stain, Argan Oil Cleansing Bars, Argan Beautiful Eyes palette, and Magic Marker Liquid Eyeliner. Quite simply, the brand’s motto, “Luxury with a conscience,” seems really responsible to me. Sometimes when I walk into a drugstore or Sephora I’m caught off-guard by exactly how much plastic and chemicals go into making cosmetics, and the Josie Maran line seems like a refreshing change from that. The supermodel has developed a line that strives to be nontoxic and eco-friendly, and many of the products are based in argan oil, which Maran’s website describes as an “all-natural, 100% organic, chemical-free beauty marvel.”
Argan oil, from argan trees found in Morocco, is a rich source of vitamin E and supposedly has “healing, conditioning and anti-aging properties to keep your skin and hair nourishes and revitalized,” and it’s the second ingredient in the Josie Maran Argan Color Stick. (The first ingredient is apricot kernel oil, the third ingredient is cocoa seed butter, and other ingredients include shea butter, avocado butter, vitamin E, rosemary leaf oil, and lemon tea tree oil.)
How does the Argan Color Stick, a multipurpose product for cheeks and lips, hold up? Read my review to find out!
