|Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee|
What a gorgeous product this is! I have been searching for the perfect blush um, forever. It's quite possible I have actually found it.
Powders can look dry and cakey, stains can be streaky and difficult to apply, creams disappear. What's a Girl to do?
I was in Sephora a few weeks ago when these new Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee blush pots caught my eye. Coconut water is having a moment in the skincare world, so I wasn't surprised to see it pop up in the beauty sector.
Coconut Water Cheek Gelee comes in 6 shades: Poppy Paradise, Honeymoon Honey, Pink Escape, Coral Oasis, Berry Bliss and Getaway Red.
Pink Escape had my name on it, so I removed my blush and applied it with my fingers. The first thing you will notice is a refreshing cool sensation as it hits your skin. That, it turns out, is the Coconut water instantly hydrating your skin. It is also infused with Vitamin E rich Argan Oil, another Josie favorite.
As promised, it is both "build-able and bendable providing the natural look of a cream blush with 14-hour hydrating color of a gel stain".
Rather than just diving into this purchase like I usually do, I test wore it through my work day and my work out. It looked as fresh when went to remove it as it did when I applied it.
I bee lined back to Sephora the next day to purchase it and I have been using it every day since. It also doubles nicely as a lip stain. I did notice in the extreme heat of the last week that it liquefied a bit.
I might not be packing it in my beach bag, as I read Josie Maran does, but I will be packing it in my makeup case every day...
