Jordana Matte Lipstick in shade Natural


I am always on a hunt for a nude/neutral everyday mlbb lipstick. Even though i do have a holy grail shade in my collection by makeup revolution called treat i am a bit disappointed by its staying power so my current goal is to find a lip product which matches my lip color and stays for 8+ hours




Matte formula tend to stay on the lips more than satin/hydrating lipsticks that's why I purchase this lipstick by Jordana in the shade natural

Price 1.5$ (in Pakistan from 250-400 Pkr)

Packaging:

 This is the most disappointing part because the packaging is absolutely fragile and cheap( my 1£ makeup revolution lipsticks have way more sturdier packaging). The plastic casing looks like its going to break easily. moreover some part  of the lipstick remains out of the tube so one has to be extra careful not to smash or injure the bullet when taking off the transparent cap




About the lipstick:

Onto the best part. Though the Casing was a bummer the product inside is amazing. The lipsticks is nude brown with a. Slight Peach/orange tinge. The texture is smooth and semi matte. I glides on the lips easily without accentuating dry spots or lines. As its not completely matte the formula does not dry out the lips. Lasting power is 5 hrs without eating anything.




I am comparing this lipstick with my favourite nude lipstick by makeup revolution




Jordana is an American drugstore cosmetics brand which has been making very  good quality affordable makeup, it was officially launched in Pakistan two years ago but for some unknown reasons they are priced exorbitantly so my advice is to either order them from a Facebook page or buy them for beautyjoint directly I will be purchasing a couple nor lipsticks from the same brand soon

my year 2015 favorites






Makeup



Face
I enjoyed using the the matte effect foundation by Makeup Revolution all year due to the natural coverage it provided and the light formula

I also liked the pro base primer by MUA



Marshmallowby MUA  still remains my favorite blush this year

Lips



This year I embraced the nude lips trend. most of the lipsticks I purchased were either mlbb or nude shade
My favorite liplner has to be by essence as it can be worn alone or under any lipstick/ lipgloss (read review here)

For lipsticks in the flesh by wet n wild, treat by makeup revolution and rendezvousby MUA were the most worn lipsticks

Eyes



 the heaven and earth palette by MUA was the best eyeshadow palette i tried this year.when it comes to my oily lids eyeshadow pencil by jordana was the perfect choice



the i love extreme volume mascara by essence still remains to be my fav mascara this year 


circle lens 

i reviewed a lot of circle lens in year 2015, it was fun trying them 
i was very hard to decide which one was my favorite as all are vibrant and very comfortable however i particularly liked the review choco circle lens for every day wear and t top lens in ice blue for formal occassions

Jordana 12 hrs made to last eyeshadow pencils





I am one of the most laziest person you would ever meet, I just sleep off till there is only 20 minutes left for the college to start , and then I just finally get my bones moving go to the bathroom  and get dressed, if you happen to spot a person running with a piece of toast yup that’s me 

So when I discovered about cream eyeshadows/ chubby sticks I though there were just specially designed for a lazy person like me 

It was my birthday last month and just4girls.pk had 20% discount on the whole jordana range so decided to buy the 12 hr eyeshadow pencils for myself as a birthday gift  (got them for 356 pkr on sale cool right!!)



Quanity: 2.8 g

Price: 3.99$ / 442 pkr
 
 Packaging :

 chubby wooden pencils which have a transparent cap.

Jordana claims these pencils to be highly pigmented formula ,matte finish longlasting and water resistant
there are a total of 7 pencils in range i have only four of these 

My thought:

these are intensely pigmented, one swipe deposits fair amount of color on the lid, they have very creamy texture, they dont tug at the eyelid at all, however they set super fast so if want to blend the color you have to be fast as they wont budge once they set, totally waterproof and do last more than 12 hr on the eyelids






1. Eternal white 

this shade is  matte chalk white color, it work great as an eyeshadow base and makes the eyeshadows look more vibrant. this color applies a bit patchy on the lids but i even i out with my fingers 


2. Tenacious brown 

its an intense matte  brown color i like to use this as an eyeliner and sometimes to apply it on my crease. this applies evenly on the lid 


3. Prolong purple 

this is a gorgeous deep purple shade which has pink glitters in it, this is so pretty. i really love this shade. this applies evenly on the lid 


4. Endless emerald :

this is such a beautiful forest green color perfect for brown eyes, it has green glitter in it . applies evenly on the lid




some negative points:

these do stay on the waterline but irritate the eyes terribly, 

the cap tends to get dirty easily 

set fast lie 30 secs

here is swatch of all the colors together 

excuse my unwaxed arms :(



these pencils are a must have, i have also heard that these are dupe for milani shadow eyez eyeshadow pencils and urban decay 24/7 glide on  eyeshadow pencils


i rate these pencils 4 out 5



have you tried anything by jordana cosmetics???

August Haul post:





I know I am a bit late on posting all the beauty related stuff I bought in august but my hectic routine and upcoming papers are to be blamed

I am going a crazy lately buying makeup even though my new year resolution was to buy less makeup this year. But then there were some deals going on that I couldn't resist and I had to try the so much hyped up dry shampoo by batiste

p.s I went overboard buying MUA stuff 









an array of blushes to try and some  eyeshadow palettes , felt my shopping wouldn’t be complete if I bought a couple of lipsticks and then the newly laucnched iconic pro lipstick by makeup revolution and the eyeshadow pencils by jordana

all these are available at just4girls.pk




and I also purchased batiste dry shampoo  from lush grooming bargains
the person who handle the store is polite and the delivery time is super quick 


so thats all for now



bye
