Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick in Matte Whisper
Jordana is a drugstore brand that is cruelty free and affordable. I purchased the Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick from Prettyclick Nepal. I chose the matte lipstick in the shade Matte whisper as it is a perfect brownish nude. The packaging looks simple and basic, with a plastic transparent cap and a retractable tube.
Firstly, Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick has a faint smell to it. I usually don’t mind mild fragrance on product but I’d prefer products that has no artificial fragrance added to it. This smell of this lipstick is overwhelming and I do not find it pleasant at all. I prepped my lips beforehand with a lip balm. The application was okay, it was not entirely smooth but it wasn’t very difficult either. The shape of the bullet makes it difficult to reach the corner of my lips so I had to use a lip brush for that.
As mentioned on the packaging, this lipstick is not matte whatsoever. It has a satin finish and give a bit of shine once applied. The lipstick feels heavy and sticky. It feels quite uncomfortable on the lips. This also has very finely milled glitter particles but it does not feel gritty or rough on the lips which is good. This lipstick transfers and tends to fade out quite easily. As a result, I had to reapply it after few hours of first application.
Overall, The price point of this lipstick is really good but other than that I would not be repurchasing it because of it smell and texture. If you are not allergic to smells and love satin finish in a lipstick then you should give it a try.
