Hello party people. It seems like I’ve been a little MIA this week, but I promise I have good reason as to why. You see, all three of my boys are on Spring Break, so that basically means mommy is on break too so we’ve been busy spring cleaning the house, donating and having lots of fun. So, I’ve taken a little break from the blog a few days this week to play and have some fun with my family. Nonetheless though, I wanted to share with you some products I’ve been loving from Jordana Cosmetics. The Contour N’ Highlight Sticks are new to me, having just come across them about 2 weeks ago at my local drugstore, but the Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lipsticks are a formula I know about and I was so excited to get my hands on some shades that are wearable. (You can read about my review on these from last year, here)
Let’s talk about the Contour N’ Highlight Sticks. These retail for $4.99 each and you can select from the Jordana Sculpt N’ Go Creamy Contour Stick which offers three different contour shades (Light, Medium and Deep) and come in an easy to use stick form. The Contour sticks help you add shape and definition to your features in 30 seconds or less. What makes these so fun is that they are mistake-proof, blendable and matte with a buildable formula for soft to glam looks. I have it in the color Deep, which is actually darker than I had thought but it blends out so well, the darker color works for my skin tone.
I use the Contour stick and apply below my cheekbones, jawline, hairline and sides of my nose. While the tip of this stick is pointed for great precision, after lots of use I’m sure it will take away the point but applying the product is still easy. I have been loving how easy this product is to blend out and the way it feels on my skin is wonderful. It has a kind of cream to powder texture. After applying, I blend it out to a powder like finish so it doesn’t feel heavy or cakey on the skin and I don’t notice that it oxidizes or looks too heavy. I love how light weight it feels and I’m very amazed at how much I’m enjoying this stick. It’s perfect for daily use for light contouring or for a full blown glammed up look.
The Jordana Glow N’ Go Creamy Strobing Stick also comes in three shades – Pearl Glow, Champagne, and Gold. I have Champagne (Radiant Glow) and have really been loving this product as much as the contour stick. This product is the perfect creamy and blendable highlighter stick that melts flawlessly onto the skin for a mistake proof application. You can use this product to create the perfect strobe or for a light and subtle highlight for everyday use. Like the Contour Stick, the Creamy Strobing Stick is also creamy and blends out to a powder like finish.
This product can be applied above the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, center of the forehead and below and above lips to add glow where desired. It’s also easily blended with your fingers. It doesn’t feel heavy or too creamy and I haven’t noticed any creasing. It’s perfect to use on it’s own or set with a powder highlight.
Each product offers a Net Wt. of 0.23 oz / 6.5 g so for the price point you get a lot of product to use and it’s easy to repurchase when it’s used up.
Jordana is one of my favorite drugstore cosmetic brands and I thought these would be something fun to use, but I didn’t realize I would like it as much as I did. I’m really impressed – especially because of the price point and how well they performed considering its cost.
Now let’s talk about the Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Colors. These retail for $4.99 and as I mentioned previously, I actually have a review on my blog with a few of the shades. The bright pink, coral and purple shade I got last year are definitely not my daily wearers so I had been on a hunt now for a while in hopes of finding more neutral tones at my local stores to add to my collection.
I found four gorgeous shades that are wearable every day tones in nude pinks and browns that I just love. So, while I did provide a review for you on these lippies initially last year, today I’m sharing swatches of these colors. If you are looking for wearable shades that are comfortable on the lips – I definitely suggest picking these babies up.
I picked up the following colors: Rose Macaron, Creme Brulee, Tiramisu and Cinnamon Toast. Cinnamon Toast a new color added to the line not too long ago, but the other three were a part of the collection, though I just couldn’t get my hands on them. I had been on the hunt for Creme Brulee for months now and I’m so glad I found it at Walgreens a few weeks ago.
I love these shades because they are not only wearable but these matte lipsticks are one of my most comfortable to wear. They are creamy when applied and while they dry down to a matte finish, I find that my lips do not feel overly dry. They are creamy and feel almost whipped like when applying to the lips and I just love their longevity. Jordana has a variety of colors from bold and red to nudes and pinks so you really get a lot of lip colors to choose from. They also have the same type of doe foot applicator that the others I reviewed have and I enjoy them.

These colors stay on for hours – they claim it’s a 16 Hour Wear time and I can get at least 10 hours without any budging. They are infused with Vitamin A, made in the USA and are water resistant. What I love is that you get 12 gorgeous shades for any and all skin tones.
The video below is my original review of the Jordana Sweet Creme Matte Liquid Lipsticks, but I thought I would include it anyway. My thoughts haven’t changed at all with these lippies.
You can purchase these products at: https://www.jordanacosmetics.com or at select drugstores that sell these products. I got mine at Walgreens.
So – what about you, have you tried any of these before? I’d love to hear your thoughts on them if you have or if not, do you think you’d get any use out of these beauties?
