Wearing Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment in Kiss Me
I rue the day I watched Contagion, because if it weren’t for that movie, I’d probably feel a lot better about these three jars of Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment ($40 for the trio).
Josie packed each pot with argan oil, shea butter and beeswax to repair and moisturize dry lips while imparting a light glossy tint.
I’ve been alternating among the three shades this week — Rosey (a deep rosey pink with a pomegranate scent), Kiss Me (a lime-scented light pink) and Heaven (a glittery, sheer peach with a tangerine scent) — and not only have they kept the flakes away, they’ve also made my lips feel smooth and great.

But dagnabbit! — I don’t like dipping my fingers in the jars. On the one hand, the little 0.24-oz. jars look cute, but when applied with fingers for a few weeks, I see bacterial bad news. Yes, I know that I could address the situation by using a lip brush, but I’d rather not have to tote one around (read: so lazy). I blame Contagion for my inflated fear of worldwide plague…but because I like these hydrating, non-sticky, lightweight lovelies so much, I would love to see Josie squeeze them into tubes.
PRICE: $40 for the trio
