I’m really taken by all the new products and shades being introduced by Jordana for Spring 2015. The Modern Mattes (reviewed here) are definitely my favorite matte lipstick, and I also seem to be reaching for them more than any other lippie of any kind, matte or not. And the Easyliner lip pencils go on like a dream.
I was eager to try the little Jordana Color Tint Blush Sticks, 6 new shades for spring 2015 that were added to the current lineup of 6 that was introduced in 2012. They remind me of Maybelline Master Glaze blush that I like a lot. Plus, I prefer cream blush for my ultra-dry skin.
Here’s what Jordana says about them:
• Blendable Creamy Cheek Color
• Provides a Healthy, Natural Glow
• Convenient Pocket Size, Twist Up Application
• No Brush Necessary
• Made in Taiwan
As cream sticks, they are easily buildable, but I found the color payoff quite good in one swipe. In fact, the red shade on me requires a light hand because the color is so robust. I’d love to see that one especially on dark skin. Take a look at the swatches in natural daylight.
My go-to shades are Baby Pink, Sunkissed and Peach Nectar. Which appeal to you?
They are just creamy enough to have decent slip during application. I usually blend them with my fingertips but you could use a brush. They go on easier when my skin isn’t bone dry. So if your skin is oilier, you’ll have no problem at all. I have a cream blush from Stila that I love, but it’s almost too oily and it doesn’t last, whereas these last for many hours on me.
Each stick has a net weight of 0.21 oz/6 g. They priced around $2.99, and they are sold on the Jordana website as well as at most Walgreens. At that price, you can pick up a bunch of shades and enjoy the variety!
Have you seen these little cuties at your local Walgreens yet?
