PSA: Argan Infinity Does Not Taste Nice

Remember the Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip & Cheek Creamy Oil?

I decided that I wanted to try to use Everlasting Honey as a lipcolor the other day. I had previously identified that I didn’t enjoy using them as lip shades, but decided to try it with a lip brush so I could try to pick up and deposit more of the pigment and less oil.

Frankly, it just doesn’t work. The brush, granted, is more effective than trying to apply it with a finger, but the product is so oily that placing it precisely isn’t a realistic goal. To get any real concentration of color requires layering the product, and then you definitely feel it heavy on your lips. It comes off on straws, cups, and anyone you might give a kissĀ will notĀ appreciate it.

Beyond all of those things, it has a really unpleasant taste. It smells nice enough I guess (if you like floral-ish smells), but tastes awful. The product, I understand, isn’t designed to have an appetizing flavor…but we all know that you wind up tasting a little bit of whatever your lip product du jour is. They could have done better and not made it taste like flowers.

Beyond that, Argan Infinity didn’t seem to moisturize my lips at all. Instead, it perched atop my lips until I grew disgusted and removed it.

TL;DR

Josie Maran Argan Infinity works nice as a blush, but tastes bad. This has been a Public Service Announcement.
