Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain collection

I had seen these for a while, but didn’t really know much about Jordana the brand. Then I saw two separate blog posts saying that the lip balms were pretty good quality, and one mentioned that they were about on par with Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balmstains…and that was all I needed to go and pick up two of the colors, to test them out. They generally retail for $2.99, which is less than half the price of Revlon’s Balmstains; and while the color selection is a little smaller, they do have good coverage and color payoff; and they do have the staining component that gives the colors a bit more longevity.

Four lip colors, swatched: Candied Coral, Cranberry Crush, Honey Love, and Nude Chic Four lip colors, swatched: Rock N Rouge, Sweet Pink, Terra Crave, and Tropical Frenzy

This collection contained:

  • Nude Chic — semisheer pale tan shimmer
  • Sweet Pink — cool rose creme
  • Tropical Frenzy — hot pink creme
  • Candied Coral — pinked-coral creme
  • Honey Love —
  • Cranberry Crush — semisheer rose-berry creme
  • Rock N Rouge — berry-red creme
  • Terra Crave — semisheer warm tan shimmer

I started out getting Honey Love and Cranberry Crush; and now I own all eight colors. I find myself reaching for Terra Crave a bit more than I thought I would! It's a warmer lip color than I generally wear, but there's enough depth to it that it doesn't look mismatched.
