MEDORA MATTE LIPSTICK IN REAL RED

I am sure many of you girls remember the time,when Medora was the only great brand in lipsticks which offered variety. Medora lipsticks used to dominate my mum's vanity.(If you don't know what I am talking about you were either born in very late nineties or didn't have any interest in cosmetics in your childhood).Then gradually other cosmetic companies took over the market  and we all forgot this simple,made-in-Pakistan brand.Recently,when shopping for a good red lipstick I found a great shade of red in MEDORA.




MEDORA MATTE LIPSTICK IN REAL RED






So,I have decided to share it with you.You know any good lipstick falls in price range of 200-
400 PKR,and if you want a good  red you should be willing to pay more.Read on and I will 
disclose the price in the end.

MEDORA MATTE LIPSTICK IN REAL RED swatch



The packaging is very sturdy.However,I feel that they can improve the lipstick tube colour 
from grey to black or some other colour for a  sophisticated look.The lipstick has a rich 
formula.The colour is a  blue-based brilliant red. Colour pay off is amazing. You just need one 
swipe to get pretty red lips.This is a great red colour for medium skin tones. I call it "the safe 
red" ,because I think it will suit most girls.



Staying power is unbelievable.It stayed on my lips almost for 5-6 hours,after which the luster 
and color faded a little.

It gives matte finish,but as you can see in the swatch it still looks very lustrous.The formula is sufficiently creamy .The lip flaws and flakes are not highlighted as the lipstick glides on lips smoothly.So,here this matte red scores another point.

As its a matte formula,you may feel a little dryness on your lips after taking it off and  need to moisturize your lips.However,this is totally forgivable, because,unlike most matte formulas,it doesn't appear dry  on lips.


The only bad point would be range of colors. Medora offers only bold and dark colors like 
mauve,magenta,browns and  orange in their lipsticks.They can do better if they expand the 
color range.


All in all,this lipstick is a great color in a great matte formula,even better than some expensive 
drugstore brands.My mum has been a fan since 20 years and will not take ANY brand over  this 
one,(not even L'Oreal which I think has a pretty good range of lipsticks).

The price is.......PKR90.So,I think for so little price this red baby is a steal.



RECOMMENDED:

Yes, Of course.


RATING:







I hope you will give these greatly underrated lipsticks a try.We should be proud that such an 
amazing lipstick is made in Pakistan ^_^

  15. My mama has been using it for over more then 22 years.. Now she claims that they're just like chalks with colours you're putting on your lips.. Doesnt adores them as they're no longer moisturized ..Prefers L'oreal red one :-D
    I envy you since i cant wear this colour :-(
    Cheers xx

    1. well maryam i used to think like you about red lipsticks,but this red changed my views.it is pretty good for medium complexion.ummm you r right there are some batches of medora which r not that good but may be that's the seller's fault you know...expired lipstick or something.anyways its price is a major plus,you have to give it that.

      Delete
    2. i will soon try it out, since the price never burdens over my pocket money :-D

  16. I have always been tempted to try this out. SO gonna get some Medora lippies very soon. Thanks for the great review! x

  17. I can't believe this is so pigmented and beautiful!!! Are Pakistani money Rupees like India and is it the same value??! If so that would be less than $2 Canadian! So pretty...I wish you would share how it looks on your lips! :D

    1. nope.The proportion is two Pakistani rupees to one indian rupee.So it would be lesser then $2 .Trust me it looks amazing.I don't wear bold colors but it complements my skin so well I love it.

  24. Does it contain lead?

    ReplyDelete
  25. dearest I am afraid all the red lippies contain lead.Also the longer stay time of a lipstick chances are that it has higher lead levels :-( however there are a few companies that have signed the safe cosmetic compact.Here is my post on lead in lipsticks http://prettypeachyandpink.blogspot.com/2012/09/anyone-up-for-poison-kiss.html
    Also you find the list of companies which make toxin free lippies in the link mentioned at the end of post.They are called "champions" for taking out lead and other toxins out of their cosmetics.

    1. Medora does not mention ingredients on the packaging.However I do think it has carmine.You can try Luscious lipsticks .They are carmine free.
