Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer

Josie Maran  Argan Tinted Moisturizer ($38; Press Sample) is sheer, all-natural SPF based tinted moisturizer that comes in five shades - Fair1, Light1, Light2, Medium1, Medium2 and Dark1. I have here Medium1 & Medium2, both perfect for most medium/dark skin tones. Its also enriched with 100% Pure Argan Oil, Pomegranate Oil, Goji Berry Extract and Papaya Extract.

Medium 1 and Medium 2 aren't very different, except Medium 1 is a tad lighter than Medium 2, which is slightly more warmer. I've been wearing Medium 1, its an exact match for me, but I can get away wearing Medium 2 as well - it doesn't oxidise or get any darker than how it looks. Mixing them both works great for me at balancing out pigmented areas, especially around my chin. The formula is very creamy and definitely good coverage for a tinted moisturizer. It feels great on my dry skin and I prefer using a brush rather than blending with my fingers. My preferred brush for applying this is the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I love the dewy finish as well, but definitely like it better with a light dusting of powder on top, as it can get a tad shiny after a few hours. Overall, I definitely would recommend this for combination/dry skin types, especially if you are looking for a light weight tinted moisturizer with natural broad spectrum protection and nourishing skin ingredients like Argan Oil.
