I’d originally planned to write about Josie’s Argan Lip Treatments I received in the 5 piece collection I ordered from QVC, but since there’s a possibility of a Today’s Special Value coming up at the end of the week. I thought I’d write about another purchase I made on QVC since it’s an exclusive to them. It’s Josie’s Argan Matchmaker Blush with Brush. It comes in three shades, Fair/Light, Light/Medium, and Medium/Dark and you’re supposed to choose according to your skin coloring or the shade you’ve chosen for the Matchmaker foundation if you use that, but in my opinion that’s not the way to go. I read some reviews that said the Light/Medium had an orange hue to it once applied and this is the color I would’ve have gone with if not for reading the other reviews and watching the video on QVC. If you watch the video there are pics of which shade you should fall into, but there’s also models that are there to apply the blush and show you how it works. Between the reviews and seeing the different shades on the models (the model that was using the Medium/Dark I could identify with, she’s the first to appear in the video) I decided to go with the Medium/Dark even though at the moment I still have my winter coloring :cough: self tan :cough: since it appeared to have a more reddish berry color to it and that’s the shade I was going for. And voilà when I first applied it that’s exactly what I got!
Now for the application part, when applying it I do one swipe across the compact with the brush and then tap the brush on the side of the compact and that is enough for me. Now if you want to go a bit darker you’ll definitely need more swipes, but I found when I did two swipes my cheeks looked like a little girl who got into her mama’s makeup. Of course the darker your skin then yes, you will need more than one swipe in order for it to be visible. Also depending on what color you’re looking for you may actually prefer the Light/Medium and its orange undertones. I haven’t heard much when it comes to the Fair/Light, but from watching the video it seems to have a peachy color to it. If you want some color on your cheeks but don’t want it to be as noticeable then I’d say go with the Fair/Light. I prefer to have a “natural” makeup look which is why I use the Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid foundation, but I do prefer to have color on my cheeks which is another reason why I went with the Medium/Dark shade.
One trick I learned from the host on QVC was, if you’re running short on time and all you have time for is mascara, lipstick and blush then use this blush on your eyes. Boom! You now have eyeshadow. I used this trick the other day on my lids and it gave me just the slightest hint of color but that was enough for me and at the end of the day I didn’t have that eyeshadow crease you can get. I also love that Josie gives you a brush to use with the blush and it isn’t one of those chintzy throw away brushes either it’s an excellent quality brush.
Overall I would recommend giving this blush a try and since it’s an exclusive to QVC you have 30 days to try it out and if you don’t think it’s for you then you have the option to return it. Just remember to return it before the 30 days are up! If you’re already using Josie’s Argan Oil this blush is a wonderful complement to the Argan Oil. Do you already have Josie’s blush? What do you think?
Thanks for stoping by! ❤
