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.
Swatched on bare skin under daylight bulbs
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.
Apricot Glaze is a soft coral orange with excellent colour pay off. It wears for five hours on me and is not drying.
Pumpkin is a vibrant true orange with mostly opaque colour pay off. It wears for a little over two hours without being drying.
Geranium is a cool pink with buildable colour pay off. It wears for five hours and is minimally drying.
Hot Pink is a cool pink with subtle, ultra fine blue shimmer that gives it a pretty luminosity. It wears for four hours and is not drying.
Vivid Rose is a medium pink with subtle cool tones and excellent colour pay off. It wears for five hours and is slightly drying.
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.
Creamy Berries is a stunning vibrant fuchsia with excellent opacity. This is one of my favourite shades! It wears for five and a half hours with some staining and is not drying.
True Red is a soft pinky red with mostly opaque colour pay off. It wears for a little over five hours and is not drying.
Cabaret is a deep red with berry tones and mostly opaque colour pay off. It wore for five and a half hours on me without being drying.
Garnet is a medium mostly opaque red. It wears for a little over six hours and was not drying.
