Meet the New Face Oil That's Also a Primer and a Highlighter

Updated 06/28/17

From peach hair to unicorn inspired makeup, 2017’s insistence on all things pastel and iridescent is far from over. (You know it’s big when Starbuck’s gets in on the action—looking at you, unicorn Frap). The newest product to join the club comes courtesy of Josie Maran—and it’s a new spin on an old favorite.

Touted as a shimmering new version of the brand’s cult-loved Argan Oil ($48), Josie Maran’s Moonstone Drops is basically a face oil, primer, and luminizer all rolled into one. You can apply the highlighting liquid to the high points of your face—cheekbones, brow bones, nose, and Cupid’s bow—or, you can mix it with your foundation or moisturizer for an all-over glow. Most importantly, smoothing it over your entire face won’t veer off into “frosty-alien-princess” territory, because the mica (the mineral responsible for a highlighter’s shimmery glow) is very finely milled.

(Sometimes, subtlety is harder to master than intensity.)

But in addition to that ultra-flattering, Instagram-filter-but-IRL finish, you also get the same quality Argan oil base you already know and love: Lightweight and fast-absorbing, it’s vitamin E–rich and formulated without any animal-derived products or synthetic perfume. (It’s the same all-natural blend of lavender and lemongrass as the original.)

Look for its official release in August when it will be sold exclusively at Sephora. To tide you over until it’s launched, shop some of our favorite highlighters, below.
