PICTURES&myTHOUGHTS

PACKAGING:
As you can see, the packaging is horrible... very cheap looking and not durable. However the product inside is ALRIGHT!


LIP GLOSSES:
Sorbet(left) and Amorose(right)
These lip glosses are very basic. They have a cherry scent to them which i do not like. The color pay off is pretty good. Sorbet is pretty sheer. They do not last that long but the good thing is, is that they ARE NOT sticky! i hate sticky lip glosses.


LIPSTICKS:
Coco Malt(left) and Toasty Taupe(right)
DO NTO BUY THESE! save your $2 !!! they are so drying, well, at least these two are drying.. the color of these on my lips looked horrible, looked sort of flaky with an odd sheen. I do not recommend these.


EYE SHADOWS:
(from left to right)

Over the Taupe, Mauve my Way, Bronzeville, Brunette(brow powder)
**i am missing Creamy Vanilla but that was a matte creamy highlight color**
I really enjoy these eyeshadows!!! Very pigmented, the matte shadows can get chalky, however the satin finishes are AMAZING esp. for the price! They are not SUPER long lasting however apply a good primer and they'll last longer!

Over the Taupe: MY FAVORITE!! almost an EXACT dupe of MAC's Satin Taupe!!! There's a picture below witht he 2 shadows swatched next to each other!
Mauve my Way: A matte taupe color with an undertone of purple, its a beautiful color!
Bronzeville: Beautiful gold color that has a great finish, very smooth applies nicely.
Brunette: a brown powder with great pigmentation. You cannot where this on its own because it will fade, I would recommend to apply a wax with it.


here's a picture of MAC Satin Taupe(left) and Over the Taupe(right)
As you can see, they are so SIMILAR!!


BLUSHES:
(from left to right)
Coral Sandy Beach, Bronze, Terracotta, Redwood

These blushes are AMAZING for the price! The payoff is very good and they last pretty long on the face! I like the color choices and how smoothly they go on! I recommend them!


EYELINER:
This eyeliner is not bad. Applies smoothly and last an okay time .. I did find myself having to re-apply. It was difficult to wash off my hand if that counts!


that's all! i hope you all enjoyed!
please let me know if you've tried Jordana Cosmetics, how you feel and which products you think I should check out!!
see you all soon!
