Happy Valentines Day my loves! If you celebrate it, I hope you had a wonderful day! I personally have never been a big fan of Valentines Day. I sort of think of it as a glorified holiday for greeting card companies and florists. Even in my younger, more idealistic days, I never thought it was a big deal. But to each his own, and hugs & kisses to those of you who embrace it!
I am going to keep on the drugstore makeup train that I’ve been on for the past few posts. Today, I want to talk about the Jordana Easyliner For Lips.
Jordana has a great selection of shades available in these retractable lip pencils. And they are $1.99 each!!!
The pencil is plastic, with a top that snaps back on nice and tight. As long as you’ve popped it back on until it clicks (make sure!!!), that sucker isn’t going anywhere. Which is a big plus, as most of my liners’ caps somehow manage to come off in my purse, wreaking havoc and mayhem in there. Yuck.
I chose Rock N Rose, Tawny, and Plush Plum.
I figured these would cover a good range of lipstick shades. Notice I didn’t get any ultra dark, vampy ones! I thought the Rose would be a good neutral; Tawny for my browns; and Plum for my darker wines/berries.
Doesn’t it look like I switched the Rose and Tawny? I swear they are in the correct order. On my arm, the Rose swatched very brown, and Tawny very pink. But on my lips they were more true to the color of the packaging.
Rock N Rose was a tad too light for me, but I will use it for my lighter lipsticks. Tawny is a good neutral on me, and the Plush Plum is awesome. I actually wore Plush Plum on it’s own the other day, and loved it. These liners apply very easily, keep your lipstick in check, and wear a pretty decent amount of time. Worn alone, they do not dry out your lips, and will stay on for hours, especially the darker plum liner.
I believe I am becoming a big Jordana fan. You really can’t beat their quality, especially for the price. As a rule, I am not a huge snob when it comes to lipliners. If you can find a drugstore liner that performs, by all means use it! Especially basic colors. If I could find a dupe for MAC Stone and Currant liners, you bet your behind I’d switch in a heartbeat! Of course if you know of any, let me know!
Thanks for reading! xoxo
