It feels great to write a product review again! I went shopping last saturday and got a lot of skin care products from Nature’s Essence. Expect those reviews soon! Apart from that, I just got one lipstick which I’ll be reviewing today. The shade gravitated me towards it and so I bought it. Let’s see how it fares! 🙂
My Experience with Jordana 026 Garnet Lipstick:
Packaging: The same old Jordana packaging of silver and black. Details printed in black, transparent cap which displays the colour of the lipstick. The name and number of the shade are written in black on a sticker placed at the bottom of the lipstick. The cap is sometimes difficult to open. It closes with an audible click. It’s a very okayish packaging. Nothing great about it.
Colour/Pigmentation: ‘Garnet’ is a red shade which gravitates towards pink and maroon. It’s a very berry kind of shade, perfect for winters. It’s bold and looks vampy, if applied more. The pigmentation is very intense. One swipe and you get so much colour. This is the kind of shade that you need to be careful with while applying. It suits all skin tones which is a major plus! 🙂
Texture: Although it is smooth enough to glide on the lips easily, it is very drying. You have to apply lip balm else you get that dry lips feeling which i really despise! The lipstick settles to a semi matte finish after some time.
Staying Power: It stays on the lips for 1.5-2 hours after which it starts fading. It smudges so easily that it almost irritates me! Transfers easily too.
Smell/Taste: It smells of chemicals, but there’s a little fruity smell to it too! So it’s not problematic as other Jordana lipsticks. Like others, it does not taste like anything.
Pros of Jordana 026 Garnet Lipstick:
• Very cheap
• Beautiful colour
• Very pigmented
• No taste
Cons of Jordana 026 Garnet Lipstick:
• Low staying power
• Drying formula
• Transfers easily
• Some may not like the fruity smell
