Jordana’s Modern Matte Lipsticks

There has been a lot of talk about Jordana’s new Modern MatteĀ lipsticks. I knew from the first post I read about them at Nouveau Cheap’s blog, that I would be getting some of them. And, here are the three I picked up…

I found the display at Walgreen’s and went for a magenta, red and a mauve. None of them have disappointed me, in the least.

The colors are very pigmented and, with the use of a liner and lip primer, the wear is super long! I was also delighted that these matte lipsticks did not dry out my lips. There’s just a bit of a creamy feel to them…

With a dozen different shades to pick from, I love these three and have been wearing one or the other every day. Even on days where I don’t do full makeup, just a matte lipstick can give my naked face some ‘oomph’. Ā I picked mine up for about $2.50.

With my lip swatches, I didn’t use any primer or liner, just pure Jordana Modern Matte lipstick…

It is hard to do that first swatch to mar the embossing, but with a deep breath, I went for it…

Goodness gracious, matte creaminess!!! It wasn’t drying. It didn’t drag. It is a sublime red shade. I love how it applied and stayed on for hours and hours…

I can easily say that if Sonia Kashuk creates any more matte lipsticks, I will purchase them. This has to be one of the very best wearing red matte lipsticks I have ever tried. It looks great with my skintone and I am enamored by it.

Sonia Kashuk is at Target. Have you tried any of her other lipsticks?
