I am so in love with Jordana’s lip liners. They are so creamy and pigmented- and they last me ALL day long. You can find them pretty easy too at Walgreens, Kmart, DuaneReade, and Savemart Supermarkets (which includes FoodMaxx). You can also find them at so many places online!
NEW! Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks!
I saw these on Instagram a few days ago, so naturally I grabbed my purse and keys and ran to Walgreens to buy them. I always go to Walgreens when there are new products out, because they have dedicated beauty employees whose job it is to get them out on the floor asap. I worked at Rite Aid in high school and was their ‘beauty department manager,’ but I rarely had dedicated time to work on getting new displays out.
I found the display (and also the new Rimmel Show Off Lip Velvets!) but it was already pretty picked over. The display only had 2 of each color, and there were only a few colors left. I grabbed 08 Matte It Girl, and 12 Matte Style. Matte It Girl is a really pretty purplish pink, and Matte Style is a stunning blue based red.
I give these new Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks a solid B+. They dried out my lips a lot (think cracking and peeling) but other YouTubers have said they find them nice and not drying at all. (See what HollieEatsLipstick has to say about them) The pigmentation is amazing and they go on so smoothly! If you reapply after a few hours, the first layer doesn’t ball up or anything on you.
I still like my Wet n Wild MegaLast matte lipsticks better, but those are really hard to beat mainly because they are dupes for so many popular MAC shades. They stay all day and you can vary how you wear them- stain, full color, or glossy with lipgloss over them. See my post on Wet N Wild Dupes here.
Have you tried the new Jordana Modern Matte lipstick yet? Did you like them? What colors did you grab?
Hello ladies! I’m so sorry for not updating you last week!
I’ve been working on some surprise posts for my followers on Twitter! When you message me and ask for a dupe I take it to heart! (@LipstickDupe if you want to ask me anything! Hint- I’m currently working on Body Shop dupes!)
I’ve also been working on my Liebster Award, so that post should be live next!
For today, I wanted to share with you my Top 17 Dupes of the moment that I’m using regularly!
I love these new(ish) Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stains! I also have the Candied Coral and I wear both of them all the time. My only issue with them is the caps come off pretty easy, so I don’t trust them loose in my handbag.
I love Revlon lipsticks, and this is one that I’ve had for years. Cherries in the Snow was one of the first bright red lipsticks I ever bought.
I love the new Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks just as much as the next girl, but at $22 a pop? Maybe not so much. For me the formula is really soft and winds up rubbing off on everything. (For those of you who are a bit more technical: It transfers. A lot. On everything.) I thought maybe adding a liner underneath would help, and even went as far as adding a little powder eyeshadow over the top and it still moved around during the day.
But hey, these are fast becoming a holy grail for so many that maybe it’s just me. Let me know in the comments!
Links are to swatches so you can see the true colors! (not affiliate)
Urban Decay Anarchy dupe Milani Raspberry Rush
or NYX Matte Shocking Pink. This one is pretty close. I’m not going to lie to you guys, it isn’t perfect by a long shot. But, like the second Naked 2 dupe below, it’s close enough that if you already own the NYX one you might want to splurge on a different color than something you already (almost) own.
Urban Decay Venom dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Crest Cabernet (previous post)
Urban Decay Shame dupe Wet N Wild Cherry Bomb or Sugar Plum Fairy, or Revlon 477 Black Cherry
Urban Decay Streak dupe Rimmel Let’s Get Naked
Urban Decay Naked 2 dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Perfect Pout Fergie Daily
Some say Wet N Wild Bare It All but I don’t think it’s very close when you swatch it. It’s decently close, so if you already own it you can rock it.
Urban Decay Catfight dupe Revlon Cherries in the Snow
OR Urban Decay Catfight dupe Wet N Wild Fergie A039 Fuchsianista
Urban Decay Naked dupe Rimmel Fairy Airy
Urban Decay F Bomb dupe Jordana Twist and Shine Balm Stain in Rock n Rouge
Urban Decay Obsessed dupe Revlon Lip Butter Cotton Candy.
or Wet n Wild Fergie VI Pink, but it is a pretty big difference. Look up some swatches and see if it is close enough for you to rock!
Urban Decay Bang dupe Wet N Wild Purty Persimmon
@SarahLouieKegan asked on Twitter:
“@LipstickDupe I am running out if mascara and want to try a new brand. What are your top five mascaras? #beautychat”
And I thought I would answer here so I don’t have to break it up into multiple tweets!
My top 5 Mascaras of the Moment are:
1. Jordana Best Last Extreme Volumizing Mascara. My holy grail, thanks to Lauren Curtis! @laurenbeautyy Hands down the best mascara I’ve ever tried. You can order it online or find it at most Walgreens.
2. L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara (Fantastic dupe for Dior Diorshow mascara!)
3. Maybelline Colossal Mascara Volum’ Express- Original formula. I love this stuff! I can’t remember a time when I haven’t had this in my collection.
4. Maybelline Great Last BIG Mascara replaced the regular Great Lash. I’ve used the regular one for… 10+ years? But I love the BIG wand.
5. L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara. I use this one as a second coat over any mascara that doesn’t add enough length or when I’m going for HUGE lashes.
What about you? What are your favorite mascaras?
I had a thought over the weekend, how many of you use lip liner before you’re lipstick? What are your favorite colors and brands?
