In case you haven’t noticed, Matte is the current name of the lipstick game with new collections popping up seemingly everyday. Jordana has made their contribution with their new Modern Matte lipsticks, a collection of twelve richly pigmented shades formulated with special ingredients to comfortably extend wear without drying out the lips.
The shade selection is extensive ranging from everyday nudes to in your face, bold and daring brights. I do wish that Jordana had ventured out just a little more and added some oranges and vamp shades like a bold burgundy. There are a few too many pinks for my liking. The lipsticks need to be built up for full pigmentation but apply smooth and creamy and wears well without drying out the lips. It leaves a nice stain behind so that the lips still look nice after it fades, which takes hours which is a plus.
Matte Bare, Matte Blush, Matte Frappuccino, Matte Tease
