“Doctor, you have to help me! I think I’m seeing things.”
“Yah, I just saw a woman who looked feverish! — but I mean that in the best possible way.”
You see, there’s a fever going around (no, not Justin Bieber), but this fever’s more of a blessing than a curse. It most certainly IS contagious, however, and it’s spreading fast.
Fever ($20), one of three new blushes from eco-friendly Josie Maran, launched exclusively at Sephora earlier this summer as part of a completely new line of blushes designed to lend a light flush to cheeks.
Blossom (a soft peach), Fever (a rosy beige) and Passion (a fresh pink) each contain Moroccan Argan oil, an oil rich in vitamin E, and JM claims that wearing them improves a variety of skin trubs, including dryness and hyper pigmentation.
Conveniently, I have both of those trubs, LOL!

Since I started wearing Fever about a week ago, I haven’t noticed any improvement in my skin, but I must admit I didn’t really expect to. Luckily, I like how natural the color looks and how long it lasts on my skin, and JM really outdid themselves on the packaging, too, with a nifty biodegradeable compact (so cool!).
Fever itself feels like velvet and blends seamlessly into my skin. Too bad about the limited color selection (just three?), but I hope to see JM release some additional colors soon. I like Fever for $20, but I’d love it for $15. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+/A-

Girls, I’m BEYOND HAPPY tonight! I just got home from grocery paradise, aka Trader Joe’s, where I picked up picnic food (sandwiches, chips, dried nuts, Vitamin Water) for tomorrow’s day trip to Lake Berryessa with El Hub. I haven’t been swimming in ages, so I hope the water’s warm! I’m not too thrilled about showcasing my muffin top in public, but I’ll get over it.
Have a great night (get your beauty rest!). Time to give Tabs his gravy.
