After being quite disappointed at the Elianto "SALE", I couldn't go back with just an eyeshadow brush at 10% off so I went over to Watson's to see what I can find. After seeing a few new things from L'Oreal and Silkygirl, I found myself at the litthe cardboard display box of Jordana. I've never really ventured into Jordana's products except for their eyeliner pencils which I think are great! I spotted a few miserable blushers but thankfully, they had testers (I hate how products are pharmacies don't have a tested for me to swatch) so off I went to swatch Jordana's Blush Powder. Read on for the full review and swatches.
I grabbed two of Jordana's Blush Powder: one in Coral Sandy Beach and the other in Tawny Beige. My favourite shade out of the two is Coral Sandy Beach because it's the most wearable one for me with an orangey coral color and pink undertones. It gave my cheeks a very healthy glow color that looks very natural. I just love the color so much. This is probably my favourite blush color out of all my blushers. Tawny Beige is more of a bronzed pink color that is great for the apples without the doll-ish look so definitely great pink blush for medium skin tones.

The texture of the blush powder itself is smooth and not too powdery so I swirl my brush all I want in it and the powder doesn't fly all over. The pigmentation is just nice. Not too much that'd you'll get a whole pack of color on your cheeks if you don't dust off the excess first but it's not too sheer that you'd need to apply 5-6 times before you can see any color. Both shades have a slight amount of shimmer in it which is also a plus for me when it comes to blushers because the shimmers give the cheeks a really pretty glow and brings out the cheekbones. Staying power is quite impressive, I must say. I can still see a good amount of color on my cheeks by the end of the day even if it's no longer in a perfect shape.
The packaging is in a pot which is similar to Bobbi Brown's blush pots and the pan is almost the same size as well which is big. They look quite professional with a metallic silver finish which surprisingly, don't scratch easily. They don't come with a toy applicator brush which is another good thing for me because I find those make the packaging look really cheap and is practically a waste of space.
I guess, there's nothing bad I could say about this blush! A definite must have if you're looking for a blusher. They retail for RM19.90 but there are often discounts. I got mine for about RM17. You can find Jordana at Watson's Pharmacy, Guardian Pharmacy, SASA and other places that I may not know of.
