Jordana Easyshine Glossy Lip Color

If you guys haven’t noticed, Jordana Cosmetics is now available at Walgreens! I spotted them there 2 weeks back and today I’m going to show you a couple of shades from one of their products, the Easyshine Glossy Lip Color.

These are described as:

  • Fun Pop Of Color
  • High Impact Shine Finish
  • The Perfect Combination of Color, Flavor & Shine
  • Made in USA

I find these to be a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. They are not super opaque or pigmented like lipsticks, but they have more color than tinted lip glosses. There is a good variety to choose from, ranging from matte to shimmery shades. The scent on all of them is not heavy at all and quite pleasant to my nose. The flavor varies. Most of them doesn’t bother me with the exception of Sweet Strawberry surprisingly. It’s not what I thought how it would be compared to strawberry lip products I’ve used before. I barely noticed any scent or flavor with Sugar Cookie. Texture is not sticky at all and it is very moisturizing. It glided dreamily onto my lips during application. Lasting power? I went for 6 hours without having to retouch it at all. If you frequently eat or drink throughout the day, you will have to reapply pretty much each time after that. Shown below are in ascending order of the #s from left to right, which is the opposite in the shots shown above. I labeled them in the first shot below for convenience.

These retail for $1.99 each, cheaper than a lot of other options out there. You can get these on their website or at your local Walgreens. My favorite among these 6? Berry Colada! Not too red, not too pink and has just the right amount of shimmer. ♥

For reference: Sugar Plum, Watermelon Juice and Sweet Strawberry are cremes while Berry Colada, Raspberry and Sugar Cookie are shimmers.
