I am a lippie addict, but let’s face it… most makeup lovers are. While I do love glosses, lipsticks have always been a favorite of mine because I just love how well they wear on my lips. Lately the drugstore brands have been releasing a plethora of gorgeous shades in matte textures that have stolen my heart. I talked about the Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte lipsticks last week (you can read that post here), but today, I bring to you the new Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks.
The newly released Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks retail for $2.49 on the Jordana website, and you can find them for about the same cost in stores like CVS, Walgreens and other select drugstores. This line offers 12 gorgeously pigmented shades that are matte in texture and feel but to my surprise, not drying at all. With a wide range of shades to choose from anyone will find a color they can use and “rock out” daily or for certain seasons.
Check out my video below as I walk you through each shade and try some on my lips. Or click here to watch directly on YouTube.
Matte lipsticks are all the craze these days and until now, bright and bold shades that you would see in high end brands were not readily available to drugstores. I have enjoyed Jordana’s matte lipsticks from their original line, but find that the packaging is not the only thing that has changed with these Modern Matte lipsticks – but also the formulation as these are much more comfortable on the lips.
I was very impressed with these matte lipsticks after using them the last month or so. While I love the satin finish the Milani Moisture Matte lipsticks offered, I like how these feel on the lips. Even if they are matte, they didn’t accentuate lines in my lips like the Milani ones can do if my lips are dry. I love the shade range in these and find that even if my lips are not smooth, I can wear these easily without worrying about dry patches or the look of crusty lips.
These really are comfortable on the lips and with that price point – it surely can be beat. I love that the shade range offers anyone skintone to find a shade that will work for them and I love that popular shades you find in the high end brands are making their way into drugstore selections.
The only thing I didn’t really like is the packaging. I’m a true lipstick addict but find that the flat lipstick bullets tend to make it a little more difficult to apply and I always find a way to ruin them. I would have loved to see these in their original packaging for their lipsticks though I do love the bright colors on the packaging and the fact that they show each color on the tube. Very cool!
Overall – I’m VERY impressed with these lipsticks and find that I’ve been pulling for these often since getting my hands on them. Again – the price point is fabulous and while it may take a little digging in some of your favorite drugstores to find them, it’s still relatively easy to get your hands on them. Don’t forget – you can also buy these from Jordanacosmetics.com. I love the pigmentation on these and I think they are definitely worth looking into if you are interested in matte lipsticks. If you’re a lippy lover, well then, you definitely want to check these out.
