Jordana Matte Lipstick Caramel Latte - Swatch and Review




Hello lovelies,

Hope your weekend is going well. My tummy has been hurting for the past couple of days. Not sure what is going on but it just makes me feel like I don't wanna do anything. I've been on a lipstick quick lately so expect to see more lip color reviews. I purchased this Jordana lipstick on Cherry Culture just out of curiosity a little while back. Jordana can be found at Walgreens and K-Mart but I don't think I've ever seen them carry the matte lipsticks, or it could just depend on the store.


Packaging
  • It has a clear tube and purple base, which is pretty interesting. I do like the fact that you can see the color in the tube. 
  • .12 oz or 3.4 g

Product
  • Caramel Latte is a medium cool tone brown with some red undertone. 
  • For a matte finish, I actually thought that the formula was pretty decent for the price. It's very pigmented. It's not very creamy but creamy enough to allow me to apply the lipstick without struggle. I didn't find it drying but neither thought it was moisturizing. You definitely would need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips with a balm before use to ensure smooth application and more comfortable wear. 
  • The lipstick last about 4 1/2 hours before it starts to fade. My lips start to feel pretty dry by the 4th hour. 
  • It has a sweet waxy / marshmallow scent to it. Doesn't really bother me and doesn't linger very long either. 

Final Thought

Overall, this lippie is fairly good. It has strong pigmentation, long-wearing, and doesn't feel too dry. Had it been just a little more moisturizing, I think I could totally fall for it.

Rating: 8.5/10

Price: $2.25
Availability: Cherry Culture

    1. It does have an unusual shape but it's ok. No, I haven't whitened my teeth. Sometimes they look brighter depending on the lip color.
