Josie Maran’s Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm ($36; sephora.com) is a makeup primer and finisher in one. Its a lightweight, whipped formula that is a great nourishing base/primer for all skin types, especially dry/combination. It comes packaged in a small tub and adds a lovely glow without being greasy or feeling heavy. I like it more as a primer than as a finishing balm - as a primer it leaves my skin feeling comfortable, smooth and perfectly ready for makeup. I did not particularly see any drastic change in wear time, but it did help my foundation and concealer sit comfortably without settling onto fine lines and pores. Overall, a nice base/primer that leaves skin well prepped for makeup with a satin finish, better suited for my skin type as a base than as a finishing balm.
