As a longtime fan of Josie Maran, I knew that if anyone could take the healing and moisturizing properties of the wonderful Argan Oil and incorporate them into a healthy Mascara - it would be her!
Josie Maran Argan Black Oil Mascara does everything I want my mascara to do - and keeps my lashes feeling so soft and luxurious!
The mascara brush is on the longer side, and is designed with special curves which allowed me to easily get to the majority of both my top and bottom lashes with each swipe of the wand.
The formula is on the wet side but not runny. With only 2-3 coats I got fantastic length and natural separation, along with LOTS of volume - without any clumping or smudging. (This is not really a curling formula however). The formula is lightweight and very "silky" on the lashes, so that when it dried, and even during the day I noticed how soft and silky my lashes felt.
The color was a deep, deep, glossy black, which I love and the final lash effect for either day or night is what I call a "natural-looking glam" effect. As a matter of fact, I love Josie Maran Argan Black Oil Mascara it so much, that this has been my go-to day-to-day mascara for a few weeks now since I started testing it!
The staying power was great - and I experienced no flaking during the day. But at night, it was a breeze to remove, either with a dedicated eye makeup remover or with a creamy oil based cleanser.
If you've been in the market for a natural, good for you mascara and don't want to sacrifice long, beautiful lashes , this is the one for you! - RLB
