Josie Maran Cosmetics has just launched! The model turned mother turned Dancing With The Stars actress has finally launched an organic, cosmetics line that's free of fragrance, parabens, toxins and petrochemicals. And to continue the eco-friendliness, it has biodegradable packaging.
Maran grew up in Northern California and had a "green" upbringing. After having a little girl of her own (Rumi, two years old), she wanted to get involved with an environmentally conscious project. Since she has ten years with Maybelline under her belt as well as countless magazine and runway appearances, Josie knows a thing or two about makeup.
Her goal was to create products that brighten your complexion without clogging your pores. The formulas are very lightweight, they contain high quantities of color pigment, and each of the products have been screened through the Environmental Working Group to ensure they are organically sound.
To learn more about the collection and details for purchase,
The collection includes more than 70 products and colors, with prices ranging from $16 to $42. All of the great basics of any other complete cosmetics line are present such as concealer, eye shadow, blush, foundation, lipsticks and glosses. It also includes a few noteworthy specialty products like her Finger Paints ($36) (a soft, glowy palette for cheeks, lips or eyes) as well as Argan Oil ($42), a versatile moisturizing oil used to condition everything from cuticles to split ends. All products are on sale now online and at Barneys in San Francisco and NYC. I'll post a review of some of the products within the week, so be sure to come back for that!
