Jordana Matte Lipstick in ROSE DELIGHT
Happy Monday to you all. Hope you had a great start to the week. Well I surely had after I got to know that My Little World of Make up crossed 100 likes on facebook :D My today's review is from Jordana cosmetics. It is a lipstick from their matte collection called ROSE DELIGHT.I had purchased this lipstick a long time back and somehow was not reaching for it too often.When I spotted it in my stash I thought why not review this... Let us see in the review how good it is....
Ingredients: nothing mentioned.
Price: Original price Rs. 239/- I got it for Rs. 199/-
The lipstick comes in a silver tube. The cap is transparent and the lipstick can easily be viewed from the top.The cap clicks locks well but then its not of that great quality and with repeated use the cap may get a bit loose. Also since the lipstick does not completely twist inside the tube chances are that you may nick it and the lipstick may smear on the cap itself which I really don't like. But I am very careful so it seems ok. The packaging is not that great to be honest,looks very cheap. I hope they change the packaging.
The lipstick is a MLBB ( My lips but better) shade. It is a nude color with pink undertones to it. It does not contain shimmer.It is nice but may or may not suit darker skin beauties. Now the funny part is the lipstick claims to be matte but it isn't in the real sense. It goes on super smooth and buttery on the lips and does not feel cakey on my lips at all.It does not give a glossy look to the lips. The lipstick is decently pigmented but one swipe is not enough to get that opaque finish on the lips. Hence for those with pigmented lips it may not work unless you swipe it a couple of times as shown in the lip swatch. I really love the texture and feel of the lipstick. It does not dry the lips or accentuate the fine lines of my lips. The lipstick has some kind of smell which is hard to describe but not my kind of favourite scent,smells like some sweet medicine :p Having said that it is decent enough. Since it is quite moisturizing it won't stay on the lips for long. So one meal and its all gone. It does not stain the lips which I like.
Creamy & moisturizing.
Lovely MLBB shade.
Does not stain the lips.
The not so Good:
Availability is a major issue.
Packaging should be improved.
May or may not be travel friendly.
The lipstick isn't matte as claimed.
Need to layer for opaqueness.
Ingredients list missing.
Staying power is poor.
Overall I would say that I like the texture and feel of the lipstick and how it goes on my lips. The smell may be a turn off for many. I would not get this lipstick again and I would not suggest that you get this one unless you are ok with the scent.But to be honest I will not recommend it.
I hope my review was helpful and made sense to you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
Thank you for your time.
