Drugstore Find: Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color

I haven’t browsed the beauty aisles at my local Walgreens in a long time (makeup tends to be more expensive here and ain’t nobody got time fo dat) but I recently did, and stumbled across Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Colors. I don’t think that these are new, but they are new to me and so I thought I’d give them a whirl. I’m pretty obsessed with matte and/or liquid lip colors but I tend to go higher end for the latter because I’ve just had better experiences with “prestige” brand liquid lip colors. If I see a liquid lip color at the drugstore though, I’m always down to give it a shot!

They had a lot of pretty colors, but I landed on a deep red (Red Velvet Cake) and a rich chocolate (Molten Chocolate Cake). Packaging-wise these are nothing special, but the font is cute and I like the doe-foot applicator.


In terms of scent and texture these are very similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, light vanilla cake scent, creamy mousse texture. I think this formula is slightly thicker though, so it’s pretty opaque with one swipe.

As far as wear these are pretty comfortable on the lips at first but tend to get a bit drier (as do all liquid lipsticks) especially in the center of the lips. Not a lot of transfer though, so I’ll take the dry texture any day.

My one complaint with these is that they can be a bit patchy if you don’t apply carefully, I found working in thinner layers helped with that. They aren’t so patchy that they aren’t wearable, but definitely bear that it mind. I also didn’t try any of the lighter shades, so wear my differ depending on shade.jordana-3

Here’s a close up look at Molten Chocolate Cake on the lips. I didn’t have a liner that matched yet so the edges aren’t as crisp as I usually like. You can see a little patchiness but nothing crazy!

Overall I was pretty pleased with the quality of these for the price, I mean $5 for a pretty solid liquid lip color is pretty awesome right? I’d be interested to try a couple more shades to see if there is a difference in wear with lighter colors as well.

Do you have any drugstore liquid lip color recommendations? Have you tried the Jordan Sweet Cream Mattes?

  1. I love the Jordan’s lip pencils, but they do have such limited colors. I did see a similar colourpop liner color in a video by a small YouTuber I have been following, I believe. I struggle to find drugstore liners in blues and such to match my wilder color lipsticks. I don’t have any liquid lipsticks to recommend that you haven’t covered or haven’t been around forever, except maybe the WnW ones & I haven’t tried them.
