Wearing Jordana Easyshine Glossy Lip Color in Raspberry
Like the Two-Buck Chuck of the hybrid gloss/lipstick world, these $1.99 Jordana Easyshine Glossy Lip Colors could be giving department store brands conniptions.
Remember the highfalutin $34 Dolce & Gabbana hybrids we looked at earlier this fall? Like those pricier pretties, these bargain basement beauties feel soft, slick and super moisturizing on my lips, and while slightly less pigmented than their more expensive counterparts, their shiny sheer-to-medium coverage should still turn heads (especially when spotters hear about their fantabulous price).
A gal could get all 12 available shades — Sugar Plum, Berry Colada, Grape-Tini, Raspberry, Cotton Candy, Pink Lemonade, Watermelon Juice, Sweet Strawberry, Mango Delight, Fresh Melon, Brown Sugar and Sugar Cookie — and leave the store having spent just about $24.
Just like these flavors and scents. Each one tastes and smells like its name suggests (another nice touch). The flavors and fragrances seem a little strong to me at first, but thankfully they fade within a few minutes.

Wearing Sugar Cookie
The packaging, while cute, makes me want to yell, “yargh!” It’s all kinds of annoying. The tubes don’t screw all the way down, so almost every time I replace the cap, I inadvertently take a chunk out of the bullet.
But those woes aside, I think these are a fab little drugstore find. Hydrating, with a respectable two-hour wear time (longer for the darker shades) and a considerable amount of pigment for the price? Love.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. How was the rest of your afternoon? At least we got Monday out of the way. Right now I’m making Trader Joe’s chicken chow mein for din-din and looking forward to starting my new book, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (I finished All These Things I’ve Done last night).
Wait — isn’t Terra Nova on tonight?
