Jordana Lipsticks - Apricot Glaze, Pumpkin, Geranium, Hot Pink, Vivid Rose, Grape, True Red, Garnet and Cabaret Swatches & Review

Jordana's lipsticks may be cheap as chips but that doesn't stop them from being super pigmented! If you've been curious about whether these bargain beauties are worth it, I've collected up a few shades to review for you today.

Jordana Lipsticks - Apricot Glaze, Pumpkin, Geranium, Hot Pink, Vivid Rose, Grape, True Red, Garnet and Cabaret Swatches & Review

Swatched on bare skin under daylight bulbs

Formula overview:
These lipsticks vary a bit in texture, the older shades are very firm and have no slip, although they don't drag or tug at the lip. I find I typically need to apply Jordana lipsticks more firmly than I would other brands. The newer shades (Apricot Glaze, Vivid Rose and Creamy Berries) are much smoother and creamier. This line of lipsticks have a sweet, vaguely fruity scent with a strong castor oil smell, which I really dislike.

Jordana's packaging leaves a lot to be desired; it's lightweight, plastic and the caps are rather flimsy. I've kept a tube of Matte Pink Passion in my makeup bag for a few years and the cap has a multitude of cracks.

Grape is a difficult shade to describe - a muted purplish pink with some brown tones and great colour pay off. It reminds quite a bit of Fyrinnae Pygmy Hippo Lip Lustre, an equally lovely colour. Grape wore for four hours on me and had one of the creamier textures of the older shades. It was not drying.
