Admit it, if you saw this on a shelf in Selfridges, you'd keep your distance. As soon as you set your eyes on the bright colours of the Gelee revealed in the tester pots, it'd make you feel slightly intimidated, so you go running back to your safer looking products. Am I right? Yes, this does look very bright and Aunt Sally-like, but don't judge it until you have faced your fears, gone over there and given it a go. You will be pleasantly surprised at how subtle and natural the colour actually is. But unfortunately it isn't sold in Selfridges or anywhere in the UK so we'll just have to imagine that it is.
I've been wanting to try a Josie Maran product for absolutely ages so I was extremely excited to get this when I was in America. I went for Pink Escape as I am very pale and suit more pink blushers as opposed to coral colours. The colour is buildable without looking cakey, and still gives your skin that dewy, fresh look which is amazing for autumn and winter.
The packaging is a bit smaller than what I was expecting but I was surprised at how little of the actual product you need, therefore this will still last you forever! And with it being recyclable, paraben free, vegan, gluten free, cruelty free and containing only natural ingredients and no synthetic fragrances, this really should already be on your Christmas list.
I definitely recommend you try this product, it's not as scary as you may think. But please, the Aunt Sally look is not what we're going for here.
You can buy the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolour Cheek Gelee on Ebay, with prices starting from £12 +P&P.
