I am back with yet another review of purple eyeshadow and this time its Jordana’s Eyeshadow Pencil in Vivid Lilies. Did I mention I am loving purple a lot these days? I bought this quite sometime back and never got a chance to review it. Jordana products are pretty hard to procure especially if you do not live in Mumbai. There are few online shopping sites selling Jordana stuff but most of them are always out of stock.
Rs.179 and keeps on varying depending upon from where you buy it.
I am not sure if they are discontinued or not since I could not find any info on these on their official website. The shade I got is no 15 called Vivid Lilies. I totally love the name Vivid Lilies as it immediately reminds of the garden of lilies I visited way back when I was in Europe. Lilies are absolutely gorgeous flowers and the name is apt for this gorgeous violet shade!
My experience with Jordana Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil Vivid Lilies:
I have used this eyeshadow few times and absolutely love it! It comes in chubby pencil form which reminds me a lot of NYX jumbo pencils. Its pretty handy for travelling purpose and the cap fits in really tight! The shade is beautiful light violet and brighten’s up the eye instantly! I have worn it during the day time too and never looks over-the-top. The texture is creamy and glides on eyelids beautifully. It does not settle down totally to powder finish but once its sets it does not budge at all. Though I have noticed slight fading after 5 hours. I have quite dry skin around my eyes and it does not crease on me at all but extremely oily skinned girls should definitely wear it on primer to avoid creasing or fading or any sort. Since its creamy in texture it blends beautifully without any problems. I usually just use this eyeshadow all over my lid and blend it using my fingers. Use little of black eyeshadow on the outer corners and blend them together in the crease area, some eyeliner, mascara and you are done! Overall, for the price its quite a steal and I wish I could get my hands on some other shades from this range.
