Introducing...Josie Maran Cosmetics!

I'm sure you recognize the name Josie Maran. This gorgeous cover girl has been on the pages of every top magazine and has been the face of Maybelline Cosmetics for years. Being a model has afforded her the opportunity to try out many brands of cosmetics as well as pick up a few tricks and tips from makeup artists. So what's a cover girl to do when she's involved in environmental issues, has lots of knowledge about beauty, is living naturally and is a mother who is concerned for future generations? Create a cosmetics line, of course!

Josie Maran Cosmetics isn't just any brand of makeup... this is a line that is very environmentally friendly and luxurious. Josie's makeup is " organic and nontoxic" and made using gentle ingredients. I wonder if she wore her own makeup on Dancing with the Stars?

I'm lucky to have been able to try a couple of pieces from this line. I especially love the light metallic pink packaging and coordinating colors of her website. Everything is earth friendly and designed to be as natural as possible. When I think of natural cosmetics, I envision berry stains, eyeliner made from burnt twigs and mud masks. Behold! Josie's line offers none of that.
The cream blush I tried was not too dark which is often the case with the cream blushes I've used in the past. I tried the shade Sunset which is a pale pink, housed in a round compact with a mirror. I really like the soft color as well as the velvety texture. I dab it on my lips for a light carnation pink shade.

I tested the concealer which I lightly dotted around my eyes and blended well, the result was a brighter look around my tired eyes. This product blended nicely and again has that velvet texture that I like so much. I have tried many concealers which turn yellow on the skin but this one didn't, the color remained true well after I applied it.

Last, I tested two lipsticks. One is called Flirtatious, a pinky-rose and the other is Precocious, a pearly rose. The lipsticks have a lovely consistency with no scent at all. Actually none of the products carry even the lightest scent which is good news to those of you who don't like their cosmetics smelling like perfumes.

I'm pleased with this all natural line and believe it to be if not hypoallergenic, at least very gentle to the skin. I am anxious to see some other products from the line, especially my favorite item- lip gloss. I urge you to visit Josie's website and check out the products when they are available this week.

You stated, "I especially love the light metallic pink packaging and coordinating colors of her website."

What does that have to do with the quality of her cosmetics? Who care that her website is color coordinated!!

In a lot of cases, the best types of meat
to make use of in slow cooking are often the less costly cuts because the
greater fat content means that the meat becomes beautifully tender throughout the duration of cooking.
