What's New: Jordana and Golden Rose

 I chanced upon the newest brands of drugstore makeup in Megamall last week and I could not help but share it with all of you. Super duper naexcite ang lola niyo because of this latest discovery. Jordana is now available in MNL!! hooray! Finally! I have seen Jordana in 1$ store in Greenhills but that store does not carry the whole line of Jordana products. So, when I saw this stall in SM Megamall, I went gaga crazy swatching the blushes (with hetchmarks pa ang testers meaning ako ang unang nagswatch galore sa kanila!!) Anyways, the price range of the products is very affordable. Their blushes only costs 149 pesos and their powder foundation 199 pesos only. I forgot to look into their liners and brow products. I will definitely go back to test out more of their products. I am really hoping they will bring in the modern matte lipsticks but their original/regular matte lipsticks are locally available. I also forgot to check if they have the made to last eyeshadow liners which are really good. I have the shade in continuous almond which is a skintone shade perfect for the waterline.

Here is a quick review of the blush that I bought from them. I got the shade Blushing Rose. They have 10 shades of blushes available but I have mustered enough strength to limit my purchase that day. Hehe Blushing rose is a deep wine or a mauvey plum shade with gold shimmers. It is housed in a tacky and fragile screw cap container. This is said to be a dupe for Tarte's Blushing Bride Amazonian Clay Blush. 
I was really drawn to this shade because my makeup stash mostly contain pinks and peach shades of blushes.
This blush is very pigmented. The color once applied on the cheeks/skin is true to the color you see on the pan. The consistency and texture of this blush is smooth, a bit creamy,  and is not too powdery. On my cheeks, it looks like a healthy flush of berry color with a hint of sheen due to the gold shimmers it contains. This shade compliments my warm skin tone very well.  This lasts 3 hours on me without retouching. I would definitely try more of their shades!!

Another newest brand in the local market is Golden Rose. This brand is originally from Turkey and has been known in Europe for over 30 years. The stall of Golden Rose is right beside Jordana. I was so overwhelmed with Jordana products that I was not able to look into this brand very well. From my research, their popular products are their Velvet Matte Lipstick and stick foundation. I got their Velvet Matte Lipstick on a whim. I never thought that I will find a highly creamy and pigmented matte lipstick in the drugstore that day. This lipstick totally killed my lemming for Colourpop Lippiestix. 
I got the shade #12 which is a medium rose berry shade with slight hints of brown tones. The color is a brightening everyday my-lips-but-better shade. This is a very creamy semi matte lipstick that has a superb color pay off. I do not need lipliner whenever I use this lipstick because it is very pigmented on its own. This does not highlight the lines of lips and does not bleed. This lipstick is also not too drying compared to the other matte lipsticks that I have tried however I still need to hydrate my lips to prevent unwanted chapping. Staying power is good. This lasts 3-4 hours on my lips even after I eat or drink but I do notice fading on the inner corner of lips. This also leaves a very very subtle stain on the lips after hours of wearing the lipstick .
I also found out out through their Website that this Velvet Matte Lipstick line has 27 shades but locally, (I think) we only have less than 10 available. This lipstick only costs 199 pesos. What I don't like about this is its packaging. The lipstick cap does not click to secure that it is already locked in place. I will look into their Waterproof lip liner soon. 
Here is a picture of me using Jordana Blush Rose and Golden Rose Velvet matte Lipstick in No. 12

What do you think of these newest makeup brands?
I am excited to go back to Megamall to check more of Golden Rose products.
