Jordana Twist & Shine Balm Stain

Hey Dolls ❤❤
I hope the new year is treating you all lovely. I can't complain, yet! Just kidding I love the new year although I hate saying goodbye to my Christmas house is so sad without them! Anywho today I wanted to share a lip product that I am head over heals in love with.

 None other then the Jordana Twist & Shine Lip Stains. I am sure you have all heard about these but if you are one of the few that have not then keep reading :)

I was very tempted to order every shade of these because they are so affordable ($3!!) but I reframed because I wasn't sure if I would like them or not. I am VERY picky about lip products because I have such sensitive and dry skin. I would say my lip area is the most sensitive so products that are too drying are a no-no!

                                                                  I chose three shades:
                                                                  06 Cranberry Crush
                                                                    04 Candied Coral
                                                                        08 Terra Cave

These definitely live up to the moisturizing aspect of their name which is a must for me with lip stains. I hate when you are left with dry stained cracked looking lips after a few hours. And these definitely do not do that. The staying power of these is decent (I would say I re-apply every couple hours) and for the price you just can not beat that! Another problem I can have with lip balms or stains is that I have very dark pigmented lips so some shades just do not show up on my lips. I only notice that Candied Coral is a bit of a different shade on my lips but not in a sheer way. It comes off a little more Coral on my lips then on my swatch. The other two shades are nicely pigmented and are good to go on their own. Overall, I would rate these a 4.5/5 and would definitely be open to buying more shades!

I ordered these off of which is an International Cosmetic website. Jordana is not available in Canada so I can only find it there as well as some other brands! If you live outside the US I would check them out, they always have great sales going on as well!!

They look so lovely :)
A lot of brands have come out with these same sort of products and Im happy to see that they are sold at a more affordable prize too and that even though they are affordable, they still perform well :)
