I’ve been sitting on some new Jordana Cosmetics products now for a few months and little by little a few of these have been appearing here on the blog or in makeup looks and tutorials on YouTube, but I haven’t really posted about them in a whole. Today I figured I would share a few of them with all of you in the case that you decide you want to check them out for yourself.
Get the whole run down and a little chit chat in my recent video which you can watch embedded below or click here to watch directly on YouTube.
First on my list are the Jordana Cat Eyes Liquid Eye liners. I discussed these on my blog a week or so ago and also listed swatches which you’ll find here. These are just $2.99 and come in fun colors for those summer looks that are not only bright and playful but runway ready. These shades are fun, funky and I love the price point.
Next up are the Jordana Color Tint Blush Sticks. I have six out of the twelve shades that are available and these are priced just as awesome as the eyeliners. At just $2.99 each, these make great cream blushes or a base for your favorite powder blush. While they apply smoothly and I enjoy how nicely they blend on the skin, I find blending with my finger is probably the best bet in application and these do really well as a base offering good longevity.
If you wear these on its own – they will give you a great flush of color (or vibrant color depending on the amount you apply) but they will fade. The color will last – but you may need to apply. Nonetheless, these are fab for the price point and I love using them.
Another fun addition to Jordana’s every growing line up are the Jordana Dramatic Effects Mascaras. These come in fun and bold shades and retail for $2.99. I was really excited to check these out and as much as I loved the bold colors, unfortunately – due to my small eye lashes, the brush was not ideal for applying as I would regular mascara. They didn’t show up on my lashes as well as I had hoped so I had to find another purpose for them. I took out the shades and tested them on my hair and found that they worked well as a temporary brush in color.
The dramatic effects mascaras applied easily to my hair with one swipe and worked just as other “hair mascaras” have in the past for me. While this may not have been the thought behind them when it was formulated, it’s the only way I can get use out of these. It’s not Jordana’s fault that I have short itty bitty lashes – so I just make due in anyway I can. Just a quick note for anyone who uses it this way – while the colors did wash out when I shampooed my hair, the green shades or blues may take a little effort in taking the color off. It didn’t stain or ruin my hair, but did take a little more elbow work to get it off. I find soaking my hair with a hair mask makes it easy and effortless to remove.
I did post a full review on the Jordana Modern Matte lipsticks – however, new colors were released around the same time as these products. You can find swatches on the new shades here and my thoughts and swatches on the original release here.
These new products can be found at various stores like Walgreens and CVS (I’ve been seeing them pop up here in my local stores) and you may also find them at your nearest Kmart. Of course – check out jordanacosmetics.com because all of these products can also be purchased online. Have you tried any of these yet? What are your thoughts on them?
