Jordana

Recommended Posts

On Black Friday, Origins was offering $10 off of $25 with free shipping.  I came very close to buying two $12.50 creme blushes, even though I don't really like creme blush and wasn't particularly fond of any of the three shades, because I actually do need blush options.  I also looked at their lipsticks, which were $16.50.  I have a really hard time paying that for lipstick, since I have at least an 80% fail rate with picking a good color.  On the web it's worse, since I can't tell a pink swatch from an orange swatch to save my butt.

 

Then I remembered that I'd found Jordana's site a few months ago, and had put off placing an order.  Some of their line is at KMart and I've heard you can sometimes catch products at the Dollar Store.  17 shades of blush for $2.50 each, around 100 lipstick shades for $1.50, free shipping over $25, and the products tend to get really great reviews.  They've got great nail polishes, too - my favorite nude, Pearl, is available at KMart for $2 and often BOGO50%.  There are DOZENS of glitter polishes on their site!  (Fairy Dust is GORGEOUS over Pearl!)  No Black Friday sale, but still I ordered 5 blushes and 9 lipsticks for $25.86.  =)

 

If you haven't tried this brand, or if you always think of ELF but forget Jordana, you may want to take a look:  http://www.jordanacosmetics.com/default.aspx

I bought my daughter a Jordana mascara at Walgreens and she really likes it. Very affordable at $3. Let us know how you like their other products - I hit pan on a blush last week and will need to be replacing the color.

I got a lip balm and mascara to try from them...both get great reviews. Will update after testing them out, although I have a ton of opened mascara tubes, so that might take a while lol.

Today I got notice that my package shipped - and I also received my package.  =)  Nine lipsticks and five blushes, all correct and packaged well and intact in 5 days.  Put on the Pink Brown shade to go out.  Very my-lip-but-better.  Good texture and color payoff.  This is the one I accidentally bought two of, and I'm not sorry!  One in my makeup box and one in my purse (or desk!  I almost wish I got three!) and I'm happy.  That and the All Spicy are the regular colors.  In matte, I got Cafe, Natural (LOVE), Honey (a bit beige of a nude but not their fault and when I try it I may very well love it), Terra Cotta, Tangerine Tango and Mystery.  The blushes I got are Coral Sandy Beach (VERY bright.  Carmindy would be proud of me), Sunlit Bronze, Sandalwood, Sienna, and Stardust.  Swatched, they all seem really nice!

 

Yesterday I was back at the site and found that if you hover they give you a description of the color.  Missed that before I ordered, 'cause I was just looking at the pix.

 

I'll let you know how I like all the other colors, but so far I'm pleased with everything and expect I'll be placing manymany orders (just large enough to overcome the shipping charge!) with them again.

I'm really enjoying this purchase.  Around 4 of the lipsticks I don't care much for, or haven't found how to wear them yet.  The other 5 I like lots (Cafe is my fave, Pink Brown is second, All Spice is great for oranging something that's too pink, Mystery and Terra Cotta are quite nice).  They have a little bit of scent - slightly like watermelon. And I'm enjoying all of the blushes.

 

Their glitters are on Christmas sale at the site for $1.99.  They've got bunches of 'em!  =)  Fairy Dust is my fave glitter ever (of any brand).

I haven't purchased a lot of Jordana in the past, but my favorite lip liners are my Jordana Easy Liners.  They might help you with your lipstick issues.  Rock N Rose goes on really nude and I find helps the lipstick color I put over it to really pop and be true to color.  I have Plush Plum which is quite red and helps my red lipsticks stay put longer.  Baby Berry is probably the one I reach for the most.  It's just a soft pink, not bright or deep in color, just sort of neutral.  Again it just makes a nice base for pinker lipstick to last longer and help their color stand out.  I would love to try more of their products buy my Walgreen's only carries some lip products and a few eyeliners.  Thanks for the review on the blushes.  I think I may give them a try.

I decided to try some of the Jordana products when they had the 25% off and free shipping offer. I purchased two eyeliners, a mascara, two blushes and one lipstick on 12/14/12. I received a shipping notification on 12/19/12 and received the products via USPS on 12/22/12. I like that the products are all made in the USA (it is prominently printed on the packaging). My daughter likes the mascara (Best Lash Extreme). I bought two of the 5 1/2" eyeliner pencils. The colors were pretty (mojito and taupe) but the pencils were so hard that I could not apply them to my lash line. I sharpened them but they are still too hard to use. I like the blush - good pigmentation and it stays put for most of a day. I was not a fan of the lipstick. It is hard to explain but it looks like lipstick is sitting on my lips. Does not seem to adhere well and feels somewhat heavy to me. The lipstick color on the website appears much darker than the shade I received which ended up being brighter and lighter than I thought it would be. The blushes were darker than the image on the website but not significantly. I would purchase the blushes again and my daughter would purchase the mascara again. The lipstick and eyeliner were a no go for us.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
