After trying out and loving the Jordana Twist & Shine Glossy Balms, I became interested in trying out more Jordana cosmetics. Jordana is a brand that has been around forever, but I had never tried anything up until I started seeing all the raves on Youtube. I am so glad I listened and that I have tried their products out, because so far almost everything I have tried, has been great. You can see my swatches and review for seven of the eight Twist & Shine Lip Glossy Balms here and the swatches and first impressions of the one Jordana blush I had found before these, Blushing Rose. Because of its affordable prices and great quality, it's hard to find Jordana items in stock, and finally I got my hands on some more blushes!
I found these items and Kmart and even though there was no sale sign, when I went to the scanner I found that all blushes and lip products were scanning half off. I paid $1.24 for each of these items, a real steal when you consider how great the quality is.
I was only going to get the blushes, but then realized at that price, I should check out some of the lipsticks too. Just to see how good they were.
Blushes in Tawny Beige, Terra Cotta and Redwood.
I love how silky soft they feel and how much pigmentation. I have worn my other blush a few times now and I can officially state that these have major staying power and will look the same as when you applied, hours later.
Tawny Bwige is a little light for my taste while the other two are super bright, but I think they are all going to look great on.
Now for the lipsticks. Presentation on these is a little on the cheapie but I like this a lot more than the gold tubes I saw on the shelf, don't know if that was another line or just a previous version. But the good thing is you can see the colors from the outside and for the price, I would expect packaging to be not as fancy as more expensive items. The three colors I got were versions of red because that is my favorite lip shade.
Cherry Pie ended up being sheer with a little bit of buildable color. I am giving this to Sam for her leather jacket days, she wants to look like the girl in Teen Beach Movie and this color is light enough for her to play with. Hollywood Red is an amazingly soft and pigmented red, with one swipe you get the full shade and it's beautiful. Merlot is from the Jordana Matte Lipstick line and it is also amazing and a perfect shade of deep burgundy. There was a red in that line too, but they were all out, I have to go back for that as soon as I can get to a Kmart again.
One of my best hauls so far and one of my cheapest, at under 8 dollars. I haven't worn anything out all day yet (Jack kept the Merlot lipstick and has worn it a lot and loves it!), but I will be sure to share on IG, when I wear them out. Overall super happy with the blushes and the lipsticks which I hadn't even planned on buying. So far Jordana keeps delivering great products for an amazingly low price.
