4 Jordana Lip Liner MAC Dupes!

MAC Nightmoth Dupe Jordana Cabernet @lipstickdupe from lipstickdupe.com

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!

I’ve seen them priced between $1.99 and $3.99 depending on the store.

New Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks | Review & Demo

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick

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?

My Top 17 Dupes of the Moment!

My Top 17 Dupes of the Moment

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!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick F Bomb Dupe Jordana Twist and Shine Balm Stain Rock n Rouge

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.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Catfight Dupe Revlon Cherries in the Snow

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.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Dupes

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Dupes via LipstickDupe

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 Revolution Lipstick Anarchy Dupe Milani Raspberry Rush

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Anarchy Dupe NYX Matte Shocking Pink

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 Revolution Lipstick Naked 2 Dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Daily

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.

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!

My top 5 Mascaras of the Moment are:

Jordana best lash extreme Volumizing Mascara

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.

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.
