Josie Maran Earth Day Essentials Green-On-The-Go Kit: Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss Review

Oh my gosh the Muse so wants to cozy up to Josie Maran for Earth Day! Have you seen the Josie Maran Earth Day Essentials Green-On-The-Go Kit?


Loves it!

Bonus! Jump ahead for a review of Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss!



The Josie Maran Earth Day Essentials Kit includes all full size products aside from the Jose Maran Argan Oil which is mini size! Cool, a steal and a deal! Pretty impressed they are bundling together so many products for a low cost of $48 USD. Economy beauty rocks doesn't it?

The set includes:
  • Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil
  • Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss in Daring
  • Josie Maran Cleam Blush in Sunrise
  • Josie Maran Mascara
  • Josie Mara Eye Liner

Josie's line is eco-friendly and organic right down to the packaging! The line is free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes.

I'm simply gagging to get my hands on the kit to review but until I do I at least have the Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss in Daring that's included with this kit. It deserves it's own review as it's mighty good!




When I was little my older sister used to make me cupcakes from cake mix like Betty Crocker to take with me to school for my birthday. I always wanted to lick the spoon after but my mum was fond of telling me if I did I'd get worms, lord....my mum is such a freak. Anyway....what brought that story on? Oh yea..Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss tastes like Betty Crocker Cake Mix...for serious it does. Look mum I can lick my lips and eat my gloss and not get worms! It's deadly tasty which means it probably won't stick around on your lips very long! Seriously, if I could I'd lick the applicator like a spoon...so sweet and yummie!

The gloss itself has a nice waterY texture minus any tack or stick. The formula does need to be layered on for intensity as one layer won't cover much so I do suggest going over lips a few times as the effect is stunning if you do. It has a small brush applicator which is nice as it fits snug in the tube without splitting as some brush applicators are known to do. The formula does make lips look fuller and plumper. The shade I tried is Daring which is a shimmering rose that looks almost copper on my lips with hints of brown. It's a nice warm shade that pairs beautifully with a peach or a bronze shade of blush. It's not a long wearing gloss because of it's thin consistency plus the fact that it tastes so good doesn't help but it does give a high shine to lips and a certain fullness. The formula doesn't have harmful ingredients nor does it contain parabens so you're not going to worry whether or not you should be ingesting it.






All in all the gloss is quite nice and I see myself purchasing a few more shades. It's a generous size, has plenty of shine, offers lips a fuller look, and tastes bloody good! What more could a girl want?

I'm Muse Approving this one for purchase as I really liked it and think it's worthy of a look!

Oh, gosh, Musey. I had the same problem as you - I couldn't stop licking it off (even tho mine was a diff color). Thank you for putting a name to the taste - I just knew it was delish, but couldn't place it. LOVE!
