I love Jordana lipsticks, the basic ones with the silver tube and the matte not so matte lipsticks with the golden tube – €2.29 of pure happiness that I\’d love to show you right now but because I only have nudish, brownish and purpleish colors, I\’ll think I\’ll wait at least until September – but nothing\’s set in stone. Jordana also has a liquid matte lipstick range, the Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color range – does a longer name exist ? – which is really affordable, beautiful and great in quality. Zoom on it.
The tubes are simple and sober : it seems like every brand does the same thing these days : black, white, a see-through tube, a font that makes your tubes stand out from the rest of a collection, here\’s the recipe for success. These 3g lipsticks exist in 12 different shades : very vivid, glamour reds, nudes and very dark shades – everyone will find a color that suits them for sure. I have personnally bought three nudish shades : 01 Crème Brulée, 07 Tiramisu and 09 Rose Macaron that I all bought for €4.95 on Maquillalia.
These lipsticks are just awesome : they\’re small, they have a curvy brush that\’s so convenient and a very liquid texture that doesn\’t suffocate the skin – one coat is enough for the color to be totally opaque and the sweet vanilla scent you smell when you apply the lipsticks fades once the lipstick\’s dry. I really like the fact that the lipstick doesn\’t dry too quickly : I can paint my lower lip first, then paint my upper lip and still correct my lower lip\’s shape once I\’m done with the upper lip. It\’s pretty convenient to have the time to perfect the look.
I wear these without a lipbalm most of the time and they\’re not really drying on my lips – either that or I can\’t feel it. The lipsticks need two or three minutes before they\’re completely dry and matte. After that they won\’t budge for a long time – except if you eat oily foods, there\’s no reason why they should budge.
Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color – Crème Brulée
When I bought Crème Brulée, I feared the color would be too fair for my complexion like Golden Rose\’s Longstay 01 which suits blonde girls better but this color is rosy and I can go out with this on my face without looking like I have a cold.
Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color – Tiramisu
Tiramisu is my baby boo, a perfect brownish red that is a type of color I didn\’t yet have in my – yet large – collection and I\’m definitely buying this one again once I don\’t have any lipstick left in the tube because it makes my lips stand out and just brings definition and character to my face without being too much.
Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color – Rose Macaron
The last color is Rose Macaron, a kind of nudish mauve, an everyday color. It\’s subtle yet it does make me look more beautiful and so I love it – I think I\’ll buy this one again too after I finish it as well as two or three other shades : Red Velvet Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Sweet Marsala Wine among others. If you love very bright colors, the line also has some that you might be very fond of. I really like this line of lipsticks and I hope Jordana releases some new shades like Golden Rose is going to do with their Longstay lipsticks… Do you know this brand and these matte lipsticks ? Have you ever tried them out ?
Even more lipsticks…
