New Jordana Stain is the Balm

Danielle Bisbano - Sunday, September 15, 2013

The next time you go to Walgreens to stock up on your fave Jordana mascara, you are going to see that they revamped the whole line!  I'll give you the lowdown on the new mascara formulas later. Right now, there are more important things to talk about.  Like their new Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain.  In a word?  Wowza.  These things are amazing.  Part lipstick, part lip balm, part stain and all the best parts!  They go on super smooth and pack quite a punch as a stain.  This is me wearing Cranberry Crush; my favorite shade for fall:

My favorite thing about these little guys is their versatility.  You can apply a full coat for rich, intense color or pat on and blend with your fingertips for a soft wash of color.  Or you can just use it as a stain.  Put it on, wait a minute, wipe it off and top with clear lip balm or gloss.

I don't have a whole lot to complain about with these little miracle crayons.  I will say that not all shades are true to color.  Sweet Pink seems like a soft pink but it goes on just about as bright as Tropical Frenzy.  Terra Crave also wears much redder than the tube looks. I haven't had these long enough to comment on the packaging.  The product twists up and I am not entirely confident about how well the mechanics will hold up but for $2.99 you literally can't lose.

My favorite shades are Nude Chic (a cool-toned neutral with a hint of shimmer), Tropical Craze (a pure hot pink for when you're in the mood for a bright) and Honey Love (a neutral warm brownish-pink). Rock’n’Rouge is also a phenomenal shade of red but you know me and red lipstick.  It takes a miracle to make it out the door with it on.  Oh, yeah, Cranberry Crush is pretty awesome, too.

Here is a picture of MOST of the shades:

Honey Love and Nude Chic are missing because I already gave them away.  I like to share!  Interesting side point; these are paraben-free. At least they are making an effort!  Here is the link to the product page.

 So, there you have it.  Off to Walgreens you go . . .
