I keep passing by the new Jordana section at my local Walgreens and glancing at the products but today I finally stopped and took a closer look. These Easyshine Glossy lip colors totally intrigued me. They seemed to be a cross between a tinted balm and a lip gloss, and they were only $1.99 each! So I got 2 of them- Watermelon (left) and Raspberry (right).
The first thing I noticed about these was that they smell exactly like their names. The packaging is decent, but I don't expect too much for $1.99 anyway. My one complaint is that the product doesn't wind down past where they are in my photo above, so when I go to put the cap back on, I have to be careful not to take a chunk out of the lip color- I can't just stick it back on in a hurry like I usually do.
That said, these are surprisingly pigmented for such an inexpensive product, and they are really shiny as well!
Here's what the colors look like in sunlight- Raspberry on the left, Watermelon on the right.
Here's what they look like in indoor light- raspberry on left, watermelon on right:
Here are the swatches on my lips: From top to bottom- Bare Lips, Watermelon, Raspberry.
I'm liking these a lot- they're an absolute steal at $1.99, and are the perfect mix of subtle color, lip balm and gloss.
Have you tried Jordana Easyshine yet?
