Jordana INCOLOR eyeshadow ’02 Black tie affair’ REVIEW
When I started using makeup about 6 months ago, I was quite obsessed with smokey eyes. I wanted to get a matte jet black eyeshadow and after reading some reviews I decided to get NYX matte black eyeshadow. Unfortunately, it was not in stock at Beauty Centre (where I buy NYX from) and SA showed me a matte black eyeshadow from a brand called Jordana USA. Those who’ve browsed cherryculture might be familiar with the brand. The SA said it would be comparable in quality to NYX and the color seemed dark and matte, so I picked it up.
Price: Rs 190

My experience with the product : The product comes in a sturdy but unattractive packaging. It has the eyeshadow in a rectangular pan with a foam tip applicator. One half of the lid is transparent, so the color can be identified from outside. I have tried wearing this eyeshadow in a lot of ways- without primer, with primer, wet, dry without and without primer. To cut a long story short- to make this eyeshadow work, you need to wear it with primer and apply it wet for a blackest black color. The texture is quite smooth and very fine and its blends well too.

Overall Verdict: The eyeshadow just cannot be worn dry as it creases, gives crazy fall out and creates a huge mess right up to the cheeks. In wet state, it gives jet black matte color and no fall out but begins to crease after 3 hours of wear even with primer underneath. The texture is quite smooth and blendability is also good but it has a lot of limitations that reduce its wearability. It can be used as a liner in wet state or can be used to set kajal, liner. The packaging is OK, the foam tip applicator is also not bad.
Rating : 2.5/5 (for reasons listed above)
