Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain Spring 2015 Shades Review & Swatches

Jordana Twist Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain new shades

Gorgeous Peony and Fresh Fig are two new Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain gets Spring 2015 shades that will be launching shortly at drugstores (and are already available online for sale). With marsala being the Pantone Color of the Year you’ll definitely want to get your hands on Fresh Fig (it kinda reminds me of a cheaper version of Sephora’s Pure Marsala Matte Lip Creme Lipstick!

Take a look!

Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain ($2.99) are a great alternative to more expensive chubby lip pencils as these are a mre three bucks each!

This are formulated liked Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain and Hard Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Lipstain as they act as not only a lip balm pencil but also promise to act as a stain after the initial fade away.

These have a twist up design so no need to sharpen them! They weight in at 0.095 oz so almost the size of Clinique’s Chubby Lip Balm Pencil. Originally they came in eight shades but are now available in ten with the addition of the two newest, permanent Spring 2015 shades. They have a subtle fruity, gum flavor and scent that’s pleasant but not overwhelming.

Jordana Twist Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain (Gorgeous Peony)

The formula is thin yet lightly moisturizing and fairly pigmented on the first pass. They wear comfortably lightweight on my drier lips for around three to four hours. They aren’t glossy or shiny but have a light sheen finish. Out of these two shades, Fresh Fig leaves a slight staining effect after it wears down but I didn’t notice the same for the lighter, nude shade entitled Gorgeous Peony.

Fresh Fig is a delightful rich berry! It kinda reminds of Sephora’s recently released lipstick in Marsala Matte. Gorgeous Peony is a light mauve-y nude pink which is very wearable (it surprised me, I expected zombie lips).

If you already like and use Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain I’m sure you’re going to adore this two new shades. And if you haven’t tried them? Now is a nice time to grab them up! Plus hey, the three price tag makes for a great cheap thrill pick up!

These are available now at Walgreens or online at www.jordanacosmetics.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Yay, these will be mine! I LOVE these suckers so much, I seriously bought 10 of them in the shade “terra crave” because i never want to be without it! I consider these to be the best thing that 3 dollars can buy!

    I had bad luck with the other Jordana stains. Every single one turned bright pink on me, so I’m going to pass on these. Sally Hanson’s were the best.

    Oh, love the price (especially compared to Clinique’s Chubby Balms). Question: you mention they’re lightly moisturizing, but is that only at first? Revlon’s Balm Stains always hydrated my lips for the first half hour and then left me so dry and flaky. :/

  • Eriu

    So glad you reviewed these, Muse! Love the colors and formula. I’ll definitely be stalking these!

    Great review, as always!!
    But I am looking for the muse-approved “stamp” and not seeing it…?
    Sounds like you like these well enough, but are they “muse-approved”..? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I just picked up the Gorgeous Peony, it is really pretty. I found almost a peachy pink on me. It looks great on you!
