For a few weeks before Christmas, whenever I walked by the Sephora store I was always curious about the Escape to Morocco set by Josie Maran. I suppose my interest in it also caught my mum’s attention because she up and surprised me on Christmas day with this wonderful luxury set! It was a totally unexpected gift and honestly, I’ve been totally obsessed with it since Christmas day.
Josie Maran “Escape to Morocco” Review
I was originally very skeptical of using facial oil on my skin. I don’t really have dry or oily skin but if I had to answer to one or the other I’d probably say my T-Zone has a tendency to get slightly drier.
Using an oil on my skin had always been a bit of a worry for me, I didn’t want to clog my pores or make my skin feel & look oily and so I had never purchased an oil for my skin before.
I had read previously many reviews on this facial oil before only to find amazing rave reviews so I decided to give it a try. Quite frankly, this is one of most amazing products I’ve ever put on my skin.
My skin hasn’t felt heavy or clogged and, infact, it feels softer and smoother. I’ve noticed that any small dry patches I had have completely gone away and the rest of my skin has maintained its “normal” skin type. I will continue to use this product and will absolutely be buying the full size in the future.
This colour stick is described as a “warm nude brown” on the Sephora website but I’d venture to say it is a bit more coppery & coral tinted than described.
I have long wanted to branch away from pink blush tones but have felt a tad nervous when it comes to copper blushes.
Though I typically love copper blushes on others I sometimes have worried they could look ruddy or orange on my skin tone. Once again though, Josie Maran has proved me wrong and showed that this copper blush will definitely be a staple in my beauty bag.
I’ll be honest; I’m never really a fan of lip glosses. I love lip balms and lipsticks but lip glosses always feel a bit glompy and heavy to me.
This lip-gloss is beautiful, the colour is absolutely stunning and it is very moisturizing. Still though, it’s a bit on the “glompy” side and I don’t think I’ll repurchase this particular item.
This gold tone illuminator is absolutely stunning. It has a strong sheen in it which could lead to an overly heavy shiny look but when applied with a light hand it can give that gorgeous subtle golden sheen.
This is my first gold tone illuminator, typically I go for pink or light gold pearly illuminators but this may just become my new favourite for a sun kissed look!
