Jordana Cosmetics Review & Swatches

so the other night, I was surfing the web, because I had nothing better to do with myself at 3am, and I realized that Jordana Cosmetics doesn't have a lot of reviews or swatches out there that they should; which is really sad, considering  I really enjoy some of their products.

one of the only things I could think of, is because they’re really inexpensive, or they think the products are cheap or most people think they’re not worth their time to review, maybe?... I don’t know?

One of my first memories of Jordana Cosmetics, I think I was around 10 or 11 years old. And my cousins Dollar Plus store near her house were selling them in their “cosmetic section” y’all know what I’m talking about lol anyway at that time in my life I was just getting into the beauty world, and to me it was the holy mother of all things beauty when I saw how much they were so of course, I went ahead and spent like $15 of my little bit of money and went makeup crazy…

I remember getting lots of different colors of glitter, and eyeshadows, and eyeliners. Me not really knowing what to do with them at this point in my life lol

Only recently I rediscovered them, when I was shopping on two years ago. So went ahead and got a few things from them, mostly Pigment, and went ahead and tried their Press foundation, thinking it wouldn't hurt to see good they were since it cost so little, and what do you know, I fell in love with them all over again, because to tell you the truth they have some very good products, but like all cosmetic they have some not good products.  And for the price I think everyone should try them at less once. Anyway let me stop talking and jump into the review, Enjoy!

Ordering: was easy enough to use, and shipping was fast as always. (Not to mention they still sell them at the dollar plus store lol)

What I Ordered:
I got 6 pigments, and a pressed foundation in Warm Amber, and 3 pressed eyeshadows

Product Payoff:
Let’s start off with the bad. The pressed eyeshadows pretty much sucked and not worth the money, but once again it didn't cost much, so I didn’t lose much, and my little sisters ended up getting them, like they always do , when I have something I don’t really like.

Now on to the good stuff. The pigment was a very nice surprise, because they really are great, and they blend really. Just make sure you use a primer or base, so it’s not fallout, and the colors are brighter with a base to. The foundation was a VERY nice surprise because it works well by itself, and when it’s nearing the end I just crush it up and put it into a clean empty cosmetic jar and mix with a light moisturizer, to make a tinted moisturizer for those hot days, and it works awesome.

The Price:
Still very cheap, Pigments $1.99each, Pressed Shadows $1.99 each, and the Foundation $1.99each.

Overall:  3.5/5 and yes I would, and did buy again just not the pressed eyeshadows, because they suck
