Jordana 12hr Made to Last Eyeliners

 
Hi everyone!
As promised, I'm sharing more new Jordana products! In a recent post I showed the brand's Made to Last Shadow Sticks, and now we're moving on to the liners! These were sent to me by the company to review. As I mentioned in my last Jordana post, Jordana and Milani are made by the same company. I found that the brands' shadow sticks were pretty much the same, and these Made to Last liners seem to work exactly like Milani's Liquid Eye pencils. Why take note of Jordana's? They're selling for $2.49 and Milani's are $6.99. I haven't tried each and every shade of Milani's, but they're offering 5 shades, and Jordana has 6. Judging by website pictures, they seem to be the same colors-- Jordana's line just added in a forest green. All of these liners go on VERY smooth and set to a budge-free state. You can rub on them all you want-- they won't move. Also, a lot of times the amount of hours a brand slaps on a product seems very exaggerated... but with these pencils- I've seen them go beyond 12 hours without a problem. That's impressive! Let's check out the colors...
Left to right: Black Point, Espresso Last, Charcoal Definition, Jade Jewel, Purple Fix, and Aqua Stone. 
 These are swatched in the same order they're shown above... as you can see, the black and brown are the only matte shades of the bunch. All of the other shades have shimmer or at least a somewhat metallic finish. 
The top swatch pic was taken with a flash, and this one is without. I think the bright flash may have exaggerated the shine that some of these shades have, but as you can see here- there's still a decent amount of sparkle showing up in that charcoal shade. Personally, I love the brown and black (who doesn't need long-wearing liners in those shades?) and of the colors, I LOVE the purple. It's such a pretty deep plum. I give these liners two thumbs up and the price is awesome! Other types of liners comparable to these (besides Milani Liquid Eye) would be NYX Slide On Liners or Urban Decay 24/7 Liners.   
 By the way, those are Tyler's paws that I've been swatching on today. I actually got a spray tan a little while ago, and I didn't want to mess with the way the tan was developing by swatching and then scrubbing on my skin. So Tyler let me borrow his hand while he watched the Cardinals game. I should've taken advantage of all of the space on his hand to draw some sort of illustration with these liners. But here he is trying to look fierce holding those liners and sporting some badass swatches :) 

Daily Nuggets...
  • Just posted a new video sharing some Beauty Product Fails
  • I'm flying to Philadelphia later this week for a quick beauty-related video project!!
  • Therefore Thursday's Beauty Broadcast LIVE will be rescheduled- if I can't squeeze it in over the weekend, it might be early next week. 
  • Not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I'm back to using the old school Herbal Essences shampoo/conditioner that are back in stores again. Love those! (you know, from the yes...yes...YES! commercials?) I have the ones in the yellow bottles- I believe it's the shine formula.
  • Just did the dishes and ironed a dress #productive (kinda)

  23. Thanks, Tyler, for volunteering as a canvas! Ha ha. I picked up the Espresso, black, purple & aqua, but only tried the espresso & purple so far. I got them with the idea of using them for tight lining and they DO stay put! I haven't used them but a couple of times because my eyes are giving me fits with the weed pollen right now (I do have sensitive eyes, but I don't think it's the pencils). I'm extremely impressed with them. I hope they continue to work. I'm glad to see the swatches of the 2 colors I didn't get...yet! :)

  24. I love watching you on youtube, Emily. I have 4 shades of the Jordana eyeliners. Black Point, Espresso Last, Charcoal Definition & Purple Fix. I have searched for NYX eyeliners and have a tough time finding them. CVS has NYC but that's a completely different brand. I've tried Walgreen's, Walmartbut no luck. Help where can I find NYX amazing liners dupes for UD 24/7 liners. :)

  32. I've run into a little issue with these liners (black especially) & the same thing as Urban Decay's 24/7 liners. My makeup area is in my office (the only place where I can have natural light) & it gets very warm in there because my husband & run 2 businesses from that space, have a network server for our computers & a total of 6 monitors. (Yes...6!) These 2 brands of liners worked fine when I first got them but after I sharpened them for the first time they got rather "mushy", so they kind of "smear" on with no defined line and I can't keep a point on them. (I may just have a bad sharpener) Has anyone else run into this? I also live in South Florida so it's warm all the time. Any ideas anyone?
