Jordana Blushes in Sunlit Bronze and Coral Sandy Beach

jordana powder blush review sunlit bronze coral sandy beach
Considering how good and how affordable these Jordana Powder Blushes ($2.50) are, I don't hear or read nearly enough about them. When I do read about them, it's something along the lines of "one of my favorite drugstore blushes" or "I bought nearly the entire range". The reason I think these don't get talked about very much is that they are nearly impossible to get a hold of. Jordana is a U.S. brand supposedly carried at Walgreens and Kmart. However, most Walgreens only carry a small fraction of Jordana's line and, of course, it doesn't include the blushes. Chances are you'll have to end up buying these online. The plus side is that they're found at retailers that ship internationally and sometimes have sales/discounts (like Cherry Culture) which means you could score these for only $1.50 each!

Formula
The Jordana Powder Blushes are very soft to the touch. Not Illamasqua-uber-soft, but as soft as NYX and MAC. They have buildable pigmentation which means they're not sheer (by any means) but they don't have super intense pigmentation (the one where one tap of your brush is enough for your entire cheek). They're also non-powdery. 
Longevity
The wear-time for these is okay. It will vary depending on your skin type and wether you use primer and foundation. For me, they start fading after approximately 4 hours. 
Value
Jordana Powder Blushes only come with 2.2 grams. They are smaller than MAC Blush pans which come with 6 grams of product. However, the price per gram for Jordana blushes is $1.14 per gram. For MAC blush refill pans it's $2.83 per gram. 

Bottom line: I really like these and they're incredibly budget friendly. They cost less than e.l.f. Studio Blushes and I like them much better (I find the Studio Blushes a bit chalky). In terms of a similar price range, I like NYX Blushes better because they are longer-wearing. However, I would still buy Jordana instead of NYX because they come in round depot-able pans. For storage, accessibility, travel, and aesthetic reasons I like to have my eyeshadows and blushes in MAC Pro Palettes. And while technically all NYX products are depot-able, I just can't stand their square shape with triangle embossing. Everything in my Pro Palettes has to be circle shaped. (I realize that sounds extremely ridiculous, but, hey we all have our quirks. And, no, I don't depot absolutely every round shaped blush. I would never depot a BECCA blush, for example. But I try to depot as much as possible.) 

Damn, longest bottom line ever! To close this review, my only wish is that Jordana Blushes had a more... interesting color selection. They're all very neutral bordering on blah. Not that there's anything wrong with neutrals, but I already have many nude "everyday" blushes. If you have a somewhat extensive blush collection, chances are you won't find anything new in this range. Most colors in the Jordana Blush range look kinda same-y to be honest (see this picture).

  5. These both really do look lovely… I just wish I could find Jordana near me!! I may have to venture a little farther from home one of these days though because I always hear such great things about their products (especially the prices)! Thanks for the review, as always, Coco :)

    1. Giiirrrl. Don't even bother. I scoured SEVERAL Walgreens (continental and non-continental U.S.) and I didn't find a single one that carried the entire Jordana range. Jordana's site says that "some" carry a limited selection but that's poppycock. ALL of them carry a limited selection. I've never seen a Jordana blush at Walgreens. If someone sees one, seriously, tweet me a pic. xx

  8. Coral Sandy Beach is beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen these in store before. My Walgreen's definitely doesn't carry them, and I don't live near a Kmart.

  9. I've only heard about these briefly but considering they are so cheap, they sound great! Mm, I agree that a lot of their shades look very similar but a few of them look notable enough to pick up - I love the shades you've featured here! It sucks though that they aren't as widely available, however online is the only way to go for me anyways!

  10. I neve heard about these! They look awesome.
    Both of them are gorgeous! I think Sunlit Bronze would suit my skin better.
    Have an amazing day :)

  19. I love both shades, especially Coral Sandy Beach! It looks so natural on you and gives just that hint of a flirty flush.

  20. Very pretty and subtle! Love to hear about new drugstore blushes that perform well! But I agree, NYX are my favourite budget blushes at the moment :)

  21. I have the coral sandy beach and I find it so hard to blend! I prefer NYX to those, but still drugstore blushes are just not my favorite I guess.

  24. For the price, this are definitely worth looking into! I never see them in the drugstore though...so I'm going to have to head on over to Cherry Culture! Thanks for the review!

  25. I've only seen these blushes sold on Cherry culture and it's so nice to get some real life photos and swatches of them. Cherry culture gives the worst photos of their products despite their nice selection!
