Quite a lot of lip posts lately, I hope you guys aren't too weary of these! As much as I like mixing in a few other posts I cannot help but come back to lip products because I absolutely love trying out lipsticks and all! Today, let's have a look at Medora Pakistan's Glossy Lipsticks!
Medora is an extremely bugdet friendly, Pakistani brand of cosmetics! They do foundations, nail colors, lipsticks to name a few, and while most of their products are hard to come across, you will find a large selection of their nail lacquers and lipsticks in some select stores so it's no surprise that their lipcolors and nail products are the only much hyped products. Today we're looking at three shades from their line of "Glossy" lipsticks. They have about 10-15 colors in this range as far as I've come across but their "Matte" lipstick line has quite a huge range of colors, finishes and textures.
The glossy ones, retailing from PKR 135 onwards are pretty much all the same as far as the finish is concerned. They're creamy enough to glide onto the lips with ease, but still tacky enough to stay long enough and last through eating as well. These fade evenly away after 5-6 hours on me!
Shade 82 is a medium warm pink. This one is the least glossy of all and is opaque in a single swipe.
Shade 22 is a creamy yellow toned red. It's super glossy. Hello perfect vintage red lips! Super opaque!
Shade 28 is a deep cranberry red. Not very glossy but not matte either! Oxblood lips? Yess!
Here's how all three look on me! These go on smooth enough but you might want to exfoliate your lips prior application! My favorite is Shade 28, which I love for the winters! I usually apply it by blotting the tube on the lips and slowly building up the color to my desired intensity. It's also featured in this post where you can see how well it lasts as the photos were taken around midday!
As far as the cons are concerned, the packaging is nothing special. These have a makeup-y scent to them which I personally do not like but it's not extremely bothersome. Once you apply, you can most definitely feel like you have something on your lips, so not the most comfortable lipsticks out there. I also wish there were more shades other than the conventional pinks, reds and browns in this range.
Overall, these are great if you're looking for a good lipstick within a very tight budget! People n Lahore can find these at Al-fatah!
-Lack of color variety.
