Earlier this month, Just4girls.pk generously sent me a goodie bag that included some makeup items from MUA and Jordana Cosmetics USA. Since I got it right before Eid I had a few more items to play with in my Eid looks. Jordana’s lipstick 029 Hot Pink was one of them. I have worn it alot at home and even outdoors which is strange because I don’t wear bold colors outdoor. Anyway, I am here to share my opinion on this lipstick today so before I start talking too much let’s get to the task on hand. ;)
Take a closer look at this lipstick! The name HOT PINK is a perfect fit for this shade.
I don’t find the packaging very sturdy. The silver and black bullet has a transparent cap that makes it easier to spot the shade, you can see the brand name written over the tube. The cap comes off easily so it needs to be closed properly if being carried in a pouch. It came with a sticker seal that had the shade name written over it. I like boxed packaging, if not that I expect a plastic seal at least. Overall, the packaging is just okay.
The formula is creamy, glides on smoothly and has a fruity scent that disappears after a few minutes of application. This lipstick (unlike it looks) is not very pigmented, but can be built up by layering twice or thrice. The shade is a cool toned pink that reminds me of my barbie doll’s lip color. It has a slightly shiny, creamy finish which is hydrating, but it accentuates lip lines so it’s better worn after some proper scrubbing. The staying power is pretty good, it did not budge on me for about 3 hours, then I had my dinner and viola! it was still there.. Sometime later, probably 1 hour, it left a pigmented tint that didn’t go away until I took off my makeup properly. Although the single swipe is not very pigmented, when layered and worn for about 5 hours it left a pigmented pink-y tint, which looked natural and beautiful on lips. The shade looked like something I’ll never wear but I’m loving wearing it now and I think it’s all about how you’re carrying yourself and being confident about what you’re wearing. I’m glad that blogging has made me more confident about my choices. :)
