Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation SPF20

The Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation ($34) is a fairly new self-adjusting powder foundation with SPF20 from Josie Maran. The foundation comes in three shades(Fair/light, Light/Medium & Medium/Dark) and is supposed to be used over a cream foundation/tinted moisturizer or alone, on it's own.

The rose-gold packaging is absolutely gorgeous, just like most Josie Maran products. The foundation comes with a sponge but, I like to use a fluffy powder brush instead since I prefer wearing this over another product that by itself. I use it like a setting powder over a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer. The powder has medium coverage and doesn't feel cakey or heavy at all. Light/Medium is a good match for me and adjusts really well to match my skin tone without being too light or too orange. However, the powder tends to enhance dry, flaky spots if any so, be sure to moisturize well. There's also a little too much of fall out with usage which makes this not so good to travel with.

Overall, Josie Maran's Matchmaker Powder Foundation is a pretty good setting powder for summer that feels light and comes with sun protection. I'm also happy with how well it self-adjusts even though there aren't too many shades to choose from. I just wish they improve the packaging to make it more travel-friendly.
