My beauty routine can definitely use a little shaking up right about now. I’ve been wearing the same brand and color of lip gloss for years, only switching it up for special occasions. I can’t even remember the last time I wore eyeshadow or bold colored lipstick.
I used to have skill with beautifully color coordinated eye palettes when I was younger. But, sometime after getting married and starting to have children, it became a total chore to take the time to apply things like eye shadow or blush so it fell by the wayside by and large.
Jordana Made To Last Eyeshadow Collection features a palette of six coordinating shades that is very versatile, allowing you to be able to create many different looks. Whether you are on your way to work, hanging out with friends, going on a date, or dancing the night away in a dimly lit dance club, this collection can take you anywhere you want to be and have you looking beautiful.
The one I have pictured here is 06 Plumbelievable. I can really appreciate that it has colors ranging from neutral to bright, some having minimal shimmer to glittery sheen. This will help me find a great everyday look that can be jazzed up with a few simple swipes for dinner out with the family (or date night with the hubby) without starting over from scratch. Love that!
Flip the compact over to the backside and there you will find three different looks displayed that you can create for yourself by following their simple step-by-step directions. Or go out on your own and create any look you desire. My daughter saw this and was acting way too interested in it. I had to nip that in the bud and let her know this one was mine and not available for snagging! But, of course, I’ll let her borrow it from time to time.
Milani’s Limited Edition Amore Matte Lip Crème lip color has some great new shades for us to fall in love with this Fall and Winter. Bold lip colors are another relic of my past that has gone by the wayside as I began to prefer sheer, tinted lip glosses.
Again, I blame it on motherhood. It’s messy and unpredictable, way too much for me to have to worry about something as silly as lipstick. But, kids grow up and need less supervision and constant attention so I’m glad to have the opportunity to try new things again.
I can’t say that I will be wearing these bold lip colors daily, mainly because I spend a lot of time at home. But, they will be close at hand to pair with my new eyeshadow for the upcoming holiday get-togethers, dinners out and other special occasions.
With 10 new shades to choose from, it won’t be hard to find a color you fall in love with. The three shades featured here are 32 Emotion (the brownish shade on the left in the collage below), 35 Attraction (the red shade on the upper right), and 28 Darling (the nude shade). My favorite of the three is Attraction, which was no surprise to me as I have always favored plum, burgundy and other darker red shades when I do wear lipstick.
This brand claims to last for 16 hours, and I believe it. As I was trying them out, it took a little doing to completely remove each color from my lips so that I could apply the next. Thank goodness for makeup removing towelettes! My daughter tried the bright red shade and used one of our bathroom towels to remove it. Yikes! Had to give her a quick tutorial about how to properly remove lip color!
I really like the look I was able to create with the eyeshadow collection and the lip cremes. Though, I will admit, I am scared to death to try the smoky eye look even with the coordinated shades in the Jordana eyeshadow palette. It’s been so many years since I’ve really sat down and tried to do much with eye shadow that I think I’m doing good right now just to add even a little bit of color.It was fun to try, though it most notably served to confirm that I most
It was fun to try, though it most notably served to confirm that I most definitely no longer have much game when it comes to makeup application. But, I am really excited to play around more with eye shadow and lip color combinations.
What’s your favorite makeup look? Which Jordana or Milani product would you love to add to your collection?
