Jordana 30% Off Sale (and Recommendations)

My sick boyfriend's taking a nap, so I had some time to do a proper post about this one. Many thanks to reader Reina for the tip about this Jordana sale!

NOTE: for those new to Jordana, they are the sister company to Milani. I'm a long-time fan of Jordana, so I have several products that I can personally recommend. I'll link to them below if you need some ideas.

Now through 12/22, receive 30% off sitewide on the Jordana website with code HOLIDAY30 at checkout. You get everyday free shipping on orders $25+, no code required. Shipping on orders under $25 is $5.

Since I know that some of you have a hard time finding Jordana products locally (they are sold at Walgreens and Kmart nationwide, but I know that some products are harder to find in-store), this is a fantastic time to stock up on your favorites or try something new. 

Keep reading for my personal recs...

  • Fabuliner Liquid Liner $2.99 (my Holy Grail felt-tip eyeliner since 2010 and still going strong. I'm not a big fan of the brown shade--the black is my go-to. Even though I have tried, and reviewed, a zillion other black felt-tip liners from various other drugstore brands over the years, this one is still my very favorite.)

  • Powder Blushes $2.49 each (such a great value and they come in many beautiful shades--you can see my review/swatches of the newer shades HERE)

  • 12HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencils $3.99 each (if you like Milani's Shadow Eyez, you'll love these too. Milani is Jordana's sister company, so the formula is very similar)

  • 12HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencils $2.49 each (if you like Urban Decay 24/7 liners and all of their drugstore dupes, you'll probably enjoy these too. For me, these wear better than the UD version and, even though Jordana and Milani are sister companies, I actually like these a bit better than Milani's version)

  • Nail Polish $1.99 - $2.99 - Jordana polishes are 0.5 oz, 3-Free, and made in the USA. I reviewed the Playful Pastels HERE, and I have swatches of the entire glitter collection HERE (this was a four-part series and the links to the other parts are in that post). By the way, Jordana has a new MATTE collection, which you can see on their nail polish page that I linked to above. 

  • Color Tint Blush Sticks $2.99 each (these don't seem to get a lot of attention online, but I really love them and I wore the shade Apple Cheeks down to the end of the tube, which is rare for me (you can see my review of the entire collection HERE). These blushes are nicely pigmented, easy to blend and have good staying power. I also love that they kind of have a retro, Pond's cold cream fragrance to them.)

I hope this helps if you're new to Jordana and not sure where to start. If you have any questions, please leave them below and I'll do my best to answer them!

Thanks again, Reina, for the great tip about this sale!

  1. I'm in Texas, and I noticed at my H-E-B store that there was a ton of Jordana stuff on clearance, including nail polish, which makes me nervous. I stocked up on the Grape polish and top coats. Any idea whether they're phasing some of their products out or was that just my store?

  2. I never did get the blush sticks. I reread your review and I just may get a couple of these. Thanks G.!

  3. First of all thanks a million for the tips! Secondly, I must be psychic because I saw these items on clearance at Duane Reade (a Walgreens company in NYC), and I grabbed Apple Cheeks for $0.79 BEFORE I read your review. I tried it yesterday, and loved it. Bright red was one blush color I didn't have in my arsenal.

  4. Yessssss! At my local wags, the Jordana display is always so empty! Just placed my order and I am so excited. So many lippies, liners, shadow sticks, and blushes coming my way. Oh Jordana, you make my world go round....
