Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée in Paradise Poppy: Swatches and Review

Hi Pandas! I have a product I picked up on my trip to Maui that I could not love more even if I tried!
 
Josie Maran's Coconut Cheek Gelées are getting rave reviews everywhere, and I had to see about the madness for myself!
 
 
I picked up the gorgeous coral pink color called Poppy Paradise ($22) even though it was so hard to decide between colors!
 
 
According to Josie Maran's website, these Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelées are 50% coconut water, have the amazing benefits of Argan oil, and are a hybrid cream/gel stain that can last up to 14 hours.
 
And yes, these definitely stain. Even if it is on your fingertip for .03 seconds, it will leave a stain, so there is power in this formula, which is great for those long days!
 
 
I think the color itself is incredible: so vibrant and juicy looking and I didn't want to even dip into it because it was so pretty! Now, let me tell you all the other amazing things about this cheek gelée.
 
All natural ingredients
Recyclable
Paraben free
No synthetic fragrance
Vegan
Gluten free
Cruelty free
 
Um, that is pretty amazing! Not only are you wearing a product that is great for your skin, but it healthy for the environment as well and I totally support that. Go Josie!
 
 
Here is the tiniest amount of product (this will last you a lifetime) on the back of my hand. The color is a warm pink with a hint of coral and I love it. This is also really easy to blend because of the high coconut water content.
 
 
On cheeks it gives the most natural flush of color. I know what I will be wearing the rest of the summer!
 
Panda Approved
 
Have you tried these amazing pots of joy? Do tell!
