I have expressed my deep penchant for matte lipsticks in past to the point that I have ostracized glossy lipsticks from my vanity or try to give them a matte finish as well – I might share that technique in future posts with you. To further feed my passion for matte lip colors, I added two new colors from Jordana to my humble kitty. Below, I have shared my honest opinions about this product.

My Experience with Jordana Matte Frappuccino Modern Matte Lipstick:
Jordana cosmetics make these super affordable yet amazing and it’s very rare that they disappoint me. When I saw these lip colors in my local drugstore, I was so excited to try them out that I immediately grabbed two of those – only two because only five out of 18 shades were available.
Packaging: Sturdy packaging for three bucks!!! Product comes in a plastic case which has same color as the lipstick shade and a clear cap. Nothing fancy, but serves the purpose well.
Texture: It is very creamy and buttery, which is a rarity in lower end drugstore lipsticks. It glides on easily, but should not be used on extra dry lips since it is a lipstick with matte finish.
Color: In the tube, the color appears to be brown with red undertones, but on application it gives a pure cocoa color with no subtle undertones.
Pigmentation: Very pigmented with good color pay off. One sweep gives a brilliant shade of cocoa and is enough to cover my pigmented lips.
Fragrance: The product has mild chocolate smell – reminds me of Eclairs and this subtle smell lingers as long as product is on my lips and I kind of enjoy this fragrance.
Wear Time: The wear time of this lipstick is 5 to 6 hours and stays put after meals and drinks. However, one can always reapply as and when desired.
Conclusion: I love the final finish of this product because whenever I create smokey eyes look or wear dark shadows, I struggle to find a good neutral lip color because the so called neutral colors in the market are meant for fair skinned beauties primarily and look unsightly when worn by olive toned beauties – reminds me of Nicki Minaj. This color comes to my rescue at such times and completes my smokey eyes look without making me look washed out or garish.
Pros of Jordana Matte Frappuccino Modern Matte Lipstick:
• Very pocket friendly

Cons of Jordana Matte Frappuccino Modern Matte Lipstick:
