Swatches & Review | Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick

Jordana - Modern Matte Lipstick $2.99
From Jordana's website these lipsticks are described as "..a winning combination of high payoff pigments and special ingredients that comfortably extend the wear. Expertly selected shades have an all-day wear without the typical ‘dry lip’ finish that feathers and cracks".

There are 10 colors available in store. I picked up 6.
  • 01 Matte Bare (Deep Pink Nude)
  • 02 Matte Blush (Neutral Nude)
  • 03 Matte Frappuccino (Brown Nude)
  • 04 Matte Tease (Rosey Pink)
  • 05 Matte Classy (Pinky Mauve) 
  • 10 Matte Pretty (Terracotta)

I'd say 50% of these claims are true. The color payoff of all these shades are really nice. They are long lasting but nothing outstanding. I'd say I can get 4-5 hours if I don't eat or drink. When they wear off they don't wear of... gracefully. They wear off in the middle first leaving a "halo" effect around your lips. If you're one that often takes maintenance on their lipstick through out this may not bother you. I found during application this lipstick tends to tug at the lips. It's not super drying but it's not super moisturizing either. As for the packaging it's decent and does the job however, I found that the black wording on the tube rubs off. It's disappointing because the name of one of the shades rubbed right off the tube.

Overall, for $3 dollars these are a good value. Maybe not the best in quality but the color selection and color payoff are a plus. I found mine at my local Walgreens but you can also purchase these and directly from Jordanan's website. There are colors online that I was not able to find in store.

Below are photos/swatches of the colors I picked up.
