Free Sample Fridays – Beauty Product Review

Free Sample Fridays is a fun weekly post where I share my thoughts in the form of a review on a recent free sample I received. Today I’m excited to tell you about a seriously amazing makeup product from Josie Maran.

Free Sample Friday - Josie Maran

Josie Maran – Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer


  • Subtle shimmery glow [not glittery, but shimmery]
  • A little goes a long way
  • Works well on top of foundation
  • Long-lasting
  • [So pretty! Left me feeling like I had a goddess-like glow!]


  • Doesn’t mix well with foundation [but works amazing on top of it!]
  • Don’t use it on your entire face [not a con, just a tip]

5 Heart Beauty Rating

Overall impression:

I absolutely loved this product!!! The first time I tried it, I followed the directions that said to mix it in with your foundation. I didn’t like it mixed in for two reasons; I didn’t like the shimmery glow on my entire face and it also made my foundation a little thick to apply. However, the next day when I tried just a bit on top of my foundation to highlight the tops of my cheeks I fell in love! A very small amount of this product goes a long way.

Personal note:

Free Sample ContainersI’ve worn it every single day since I tried it and still haven’t run out of the sample. I will definitely be buying the full-sized product from Sephora once I do eventually run out of the sample. My tip for anyone that will be using a single-use sized sample more than once should go get a few small containers that they give out samples in at makeup counters. Use the empty containers to squeeze the sample product into to keep the product fresh [see image on the right].
