REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks – New Shades for 2014

    Jordana has one of the most extensive shade ranges for lipstick that I’ve seen from a drugstore line of its price point. This year, they released 11 new shades in their regular lipstick line, seven of which I have to share with you today.

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014

    The brand has two lines of lipstick: regular in the silver tubes, and mattes in the gold tubes. I have a handful of both versions (let me know in the comments if you’d like a review/swatches of the mattes), but there isn’t a dramatic difference in the finishes between the two, at least from what I can see in the shades I have. Both have a very soft sheen, but these regular lipsticks feel more creamy and don’t accentuate dry patches as easily as the mattes do.

    On to swatches, yo!

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014: Natural Touch
    Natural Touch is a great every-day shade. It’s a dusty rose-mauve that’s great to pair with a bolder eye.

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014: Apricot Glaze

    Apricot Glaze is more of a coral shade in my opinion; a really good balance between orange and pink.

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014: Coral Flame

    Coral Flame leans much more pink than what I imagine to be coral, but it’s still a beautiful bright pink for summer!

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014: Vivid Rose

    Vivid Rose is a slightly yellow-based medium pink.

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014: Hip Rose

    Hip Rose is a blue-based magenta.

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014: Red Volt

    Red Volt is a hot, warm red. This was definitely the glossiest out of these shades, and I would suggest laying down some lip liner to prevent feathering.

    REVIEW & SWATCHES: Jordana Lipsticks - New Shades for 2014: Creamy Berries

    Creamy Berries is a cool, purple toned berry shade. Bright enough for summer, but I’ll definitely be wearing this well into fall.

    Application of the Jordana lipsticks is smooth with a creamy texture. You get full coverage color with just one swipe. One thing you’ll notice that I don’t particularly like is the scent. It has a waxy, fruity scent that is pretty strong in the tube, but luckily doesn’t linger on the lips. It just makes application a bit unpleasant for me, and those who are sensitive to scents may feel the same.

    I got about four and a half hours of wear without eating before the lipstick looked noticeably faded around the inside of my lips. That’s also around the same time my lips start to feel dry– but not desperately. After two hours, most of the sheen is gone, so these dry down to be nearly matte… which is why I mentioned that there’s not a huge difference between these and the matte lipsticks.

    These are definitely worth the $1.50 investment, in my book.  They’re comfy, pigmented… and less than two bucks, I mean can you really go wrong? A cheap thrill for a colorful lip! Check out the rest of the shades on Jordana’s website.

    1. Yes I would love a review of the matte shades please (gold tube). I find the modern mats reviewed everywhere, not so much of the silver and gold tubes which are a dupe for milani!

    2. I am trying to find a dupe of cream berries in matte Plum passion seem to be the best option, but cant find it, is cream berries very shiny?

    3. Wow, all of them are so pretty! I don’t have Jordana in stores near me, but I’ll try to order a few of these online.

    4. I love Jordana. Great value. I’ll be honest – a lot of the pinks look very similar to me! Maybe it’s my monitor? I even like the nude in this collex, which is rare for me.

    5. Only $1.50? well I guess any criticism I have is not really worth it at that low price! I like the last color, Creamy Berries, the most. It looks great on you!

    6. I’ve always been interested in Jordana Lipsticks, even though the packaging is really I have always bee curious about the actual product. Thanks for the swatches!
