Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Fresh Fig (10)

When I first saw this on Jordana’s website, I thought that it would be a color-dupe for Buxom Brooklyn - it might have some brown undertones to it, I thought. This is great! Sadly…it’s definitely more of a medium-deep red. The shade match isn’t quite what I had hoped for. It’s still the same low-cost lip stain formula as the other balmstains in Jordana’s collection. It’s just not the shade match I thought it might be.

This is an excellent shade for people who like the idea of wearing a bold red lipstick, but the reality does not match up with expectations.
