Today I bought three of the new Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color ($4.99) and five of the six Made to Last Liquid Eyeshadows ($4.99)! I got all of these at walgreen’s, but they are also available at K-Mart. So far, they aren’t available for purchase online.
Let’s talk about the lips first. I’m really into these. I’ve become a liquid lipstick hoarder and this is a great formula for a very low price. They dry quickly to a matte finish that is lightweight and comfortable. They do get drying after a while, so if that bothers you, they also layer well over or under balms although that will reduce wear time. On their own with no balm, I was able to eat lunch and drink a coffee without any transfer, but they are not entirely smudgeproof, and will smudge if rubbed (but only if you rub them fairly hard, not just accidentally touching them).
What’s even better is that while I can’t personally confirm, I’ve seen pictures online that show the shade Creme Brulee is an exact dupe of the Kylie Lipkit shade Koko K, but for sooo much less (and also not constantly sold out).
Here are the shades I purchased: (swatched L-R) 01 Creme Brulee, a dusty pink; 07 Tiramisu, a rusty nude and 05 Mango Sorbet, a bright orange.
So those are really fun, but good inexpensive matte liquid lipsticks are becoming pretty common. What’s truly different are these metallic Liquid eyeshadows. Wowwww, i am in love with these (which is why I ended up buying every color the store had in stock). They’re super metallic and easy to apply. I used to like liquid eyeshadows in the early 2000’s, but they were always in little squeeze tubes that made them super hard to use. This version is a little creamier and has a paddle applicator that makes the much easier to apply.
I like to dab a little on my eyelids, let the cream set up for a few seconds, then tap the color with my fingers to blend. I add more as needed until it’s as vibrant as I want. I really like these, although I don’t know why they don’t have a better shade variety. They’re worth it either way. I’m obsessed with these. The swatches from L-R are 01 Forever Sand, 02 Not A Wink Pink, 03 Immortal Metal, 04 Uphold Gold, and 05 Dusk ‘Til Bronze (the 6th shade was sold out).
Here’s a final look with the shadows in Eternal Sand, Uphold Gold and Eternal Metal and lips in Mango Sorbet:
