Jordana Cosmetics Modern Matte Lipstick Swatches And Review


Disclosure: Contains press samples

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.

Jordana Modern matte

Matte Bare is a peachy toned nude

Matte Blush is a blush toned nude

Matte Frappuccino is a tawny toned brown


Jordana Modern Matte 2

Matte Tease is a taffy toned pink

Matte Classy is a mauve toned pink

Matte Adorable is a cool toned bubblegum pink

Jordana Modern Matte 3

Matte Popular is a warm toned bubblegum pink

Matte It Girl is a muted magenta

Matte Dare is a grape toned purple


Jordana Modern Matte 4

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.

    I only have three so far, but your swatches just put a few more on my list. I think I need Matte Blush, Matte Classy and Matte Caliente.


    1. GlitteryGlossy

      You would look great in Matte Classy!

    I love these lipsticks I started with one and ended up buying 4 total heh. They are so nice, and long lasting I am a huge fan of Jordana!


  3. Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I’ve been wearing these beauties non-stop since they arrived earlier this spring. They are the only matte lipsticks I can wear. Just love ’em!

    I bought Matte Dare, and though it looks like a crazy purple in the tube, it’s actually a very wearable berry. I love it!


    1. GlitteryGlossy

      I was actually disappointed that matte dare was not purple. Such a deceptive shade.


  5. Color Me So Crazy

    I really like these. I was surprised that something with this price would love me back!! The matte finish is just awesome, too. I love that finish because I can always throw gloss on top if I needed to.


  6. Kristina | The Feminine Files

    Matte Bare immediately caught my eye! I need to try some if these, they are so well priced.

    The Walgreens near me stopped carrying Jordana and the indie store that does carry it never has the new stuff. I have ordered online though because you can’t beat the prices.


    1. GlitteryGlossy

      They have some great items at a low price!


  8. AllLacqueredUp

    I’m totally getting Blush and Classy. Thanks for the swatches


    1. GlitteryGlossy

      I think you would look great in Blush!


  9. Honeygirlk

    I love these lippies. 🙂 Matte Blushing is my fave.

    I think Jordana is such a great company with great products and underrated. Great post.
