Easy lipshine, conditions my lips, leaves a light but gorgeous color on my lips, makes my lips feel great especially when theyre chapped..i always buy this product (in melon) i love it and highly recommend it!
These Easyshines are suprisingly awesome for only $2 a pop - they're like a threeway hybrid between lipstick, gloss and lip balm and as much as I love them, there are a couple of drawbacks.
The range of colours is pretty good, so there will be something for everyone, Berry Colada and Watermelon Juice are probably my picks for universally appealing colours. These apply pretty sheer but colour can be built up in several layers and the application is dreamy, smooth and slick without being waxy or overloaded in anyway. They have a great balm like texture and don't dry lips out. The deeper colours seem to last fairly well, though in my experience, the lighter, less pimented shades such as Pink Lemonade and Sugar Cookie seem to fade a bit quicker.
Each colour is also flavoured to match it's name, so artifical fruity scents abound. If that's not your thing, then feel free to skip these but I think it's fun and I appreciate them all being different, not some universal plasticky wax yuckness.
Super cheap, small but decent range of shades, lovely application, decent colour pay off (for the most part) and fairly moisturizing... what's not to love? Well, here goes...
The down side - while these are very small, which makes them great if you have very limited space, they contain less than 2g of product. Which is fine for the price they are, don't get me wrong, but most other lipsticks are usually about 3.5 - 4g minimum and glosses are usually 5mL plus so it's just something to keep in mind. Still great value considering the price but if you re-apply them often, you will go through them much faster than a regular sized lipstick or gloss tube, so be prepared to accept that.
The tubes are colour coded to match the stick colour but the lids are clear so you can see the worn down stub of product, which is never my favourite thing. But this is worse - the stick does not wind down fully into the tube so you risk nicking the top and sides if you're not super careful about removing and replacing the lid. Which kind of defeats the whole grab-and-go-glossy kind of vibe they have going on and if you're in a rush or not super precise, then you risk making a mess and/or wasting product, which is always disappointing.
If you have pigmiented lips, then shades like Fresh Melon and Cotton Candy aren't going to show up very well, if at all but they do add a nice shine and feel, so if you're happy with that, then go for it.
Overall, I have 6 or 7 of these and I enjoy them very much!
I first bought the Berry Colada which is like a toasted pink, i really loved it so i went and bought "brown sugar" to use it as a nude lip colour and Sweet Stawberry to use it as a bold red lip colour. I really like these lip balms cause theyre pretty sheer and soft. For that same reason the colour doesnt really last as long but when i want it to last i wear a really sticky lip gloss over it. The packaging isnt great though, the product doesnt go completely down the tube at first so it really easy to nick the product, the labelling also erases after a while.
This is a bright pink great for a pop of color or to brighten up your face. It's very moisturizing and fades into a nice stain. I just wish it didn't feel so slick and slightly greasy on my lips. Other than that, it's really nice
I have this in SB-03 Grape-Tini, which was a huge leap for me because I never thought I'd buy or wear a purple lipstick. Turns out that it's not overwhelming, and actually really flattering! The color is beautiful, the gloss slides on smoothly and it lasts a while (not through lunch, but you know). It smells like a grape-flavored Jolly Rancher, too! If you've ever tried NYX Black Label lipstick in Diva, it's very similar in look and texture. It's also only $1.99 on Jordana's website, so it's perfect for taking a plunge on a color you haven't tried before - like I did!
I bought the Jordana Easyshine Lipcolor in the shade Berry Colada several months ago at my local Walgreens for about $2. Initially, I was incredibly impressed with the level of pigmentation and the amount of moisture this product provided my lips. I really enjoy the smell, which is a very strong fruity scent, and the packaging is decent, but i wish the product went inside the tube all the way because the cap gets very dirty very quickly as it is practically impossible not to nick the product when taking the cap on and off. However, as I used the product a bit more, I discovered how easily the product wears off and becomes uneven on the lips. Also, when it does wear off, which happens within about twenty or thirty minutes for me, the glitter in the product still remains creating a very strange look. Now, if I wear it all I will just put a little on my lips and blend it out for a more subtle color that doesn't look as strange when it wears off. Overall, I do not really recommend this product because of the way it wears, yet the price and the moisturization of this product are both wonderful.
I love these so much! I have Raspberry and Cotton Candy. They both smell so nice! They are also VERY pigmented, but I really like it! Good product!
I have bought this product 5 times.
The watermelon one is a great color for me and is really nice.
It actually doesn't leave my lips but dries up on it and becomes somewhat of a lip stain.
Its a light color that is casual and GREAT for every day use.
I try everything else but i keep coming back to this lip gloss thingy.
EHMAGAWD! THIS IS THE BEST! I love love love this gloss here's why! First of all, the color is great. I got watermelon juice. It's reddish pinkish orange-y. It smells ah-mazing. Like watermelon! It's glossy at first, but when the gloss wears out, it's a lip stain! EH-MA-GAWDD! LOVE IT! GET IT! It's perfect! It also feels great on my lips. Also it's cheap! And for all ages! Light pinks will appeal to 10 under, mediums and reds for 11 up, and dark browns/purples for like 30 up! ALL THESE GLOSSES ARE GREAT FOR ANY AGE!!!!!!!! :)
What a great find, indeed! I've just purchased my second tube of this in Sweet Strawberry, which is a berry red. It can be applied lightly for a sheer look, or if you swipe it on repeatedly it can go quite a bit deeper in color yet still somewhat transparent, like a sheer or semi-sheer lipstick. Either way, it's very glossy and shiny, but with absolutely zero stickiness or thickness. Feels very light on the lips, and feels moisturizing while it's on.
This stuff does have quite a bit of slip to it, so it glides super smoothly on but may slide around on the lips a bit. The staying power is not the worst, but certainly not amazing - it will wear down to somewhat of a stain before disappearing, but personally I need to reapply every few hours or so.
Sweet Strawberry smells like its name, a synthetic, sugary fruit smell which doesn't bother me and doesn't taste like anything.
The packaging leaves a bit to be desired (skinny tube, use caution when replacing the lid so as not to nick the product itself), but considering the cheap price and how much I enjoy the product, I'll deal with it.
For what this product is, it's an excellent product. This would be a good choice for those wanting to venture into lipsticks but not make the full commitment of a creme or matte lipstick. Sweet Strawberry would be a great inexpensive option for somebody's "first red."
I'd like to try some of the other colors.
If any of this sounds appealing to you, give it a go because the price is right.
