Jordana Cosmetics released a line of affordable lipsticks with a matte finish back in January 2015. I finally got the chance to give these babies a quick swatch plus I will be back in about a week with some new additions to the collection.
Matte Bare is a peachy toned nude
Matte Blush is a blush toned nude
Matte Frappuccino is a tawny toned brown
Matte Tease is a taffy toned pink
Matte Classy is a mauve toned pink
Matte Adorable is a cool toned bubblegum pink
Matte Popular is a warm toned bubblegum pink
Matte It Girl is a muted magenta
Matte Dare is a grape toned purple
Matte Pretty is a salmon colored red
Matte Caliente is an orange-red
Matte Style is a candy toned red
The formula is very light and hydrating. I would not consider these a true matte in my book, as they have a little sheen to them. Application was simple and all the lipsticks swatched well. The only shade that I was not personally in love with was Matte Adorable because it is so cool in tone. You can always try Matte Popular if you are interested in a warmer bubblegum pink. My favorite shades from the collection include Matte Pretty, Matte Classy and Matte Bare.
Jordana Cosmetics Modern Matte lipsticks retail $2.99. You can order Jordana products online, or hop over to Walgreens. Remember, Jordana products are displayed around the counter of the beauty department.
