Medora is a one brand almost all girls have seen in their home while growing up in Pakistan and they have been underrated for so long because of their low price and cheap packaging but nowadays our fellow beauty bloggers has started to rave about them and they have become noticeable again. I have got my hands on few of them to try, including Matte finish, semi matte and glitter finish. Let me share my thoughts about them with you.
Medora Lipstick in Hot Pink, Raspberry, Viva Glam and Glitter
I have bought these lipsticks in two finishes matte and semi matte. Matte ones come in grey packaging and Semi matte comes in more of blue color packaging. The Packaging is light weight made of plastic which is not very good but you can not ask more for such price. All lipsticks have very noticeable scent. The scent of matte one is more strong then semi matte which can be bothersome for some who don't like strong makeup scents but they will fade away soon.
These lipsticks glide smoothly and are highly pigmented. You do not have to put much effort to get opaque color from them. Semi Matte lipstick is little glossier then Matte.. I am impressed with their staying time. Matte lipstick stays 6 to 7 hours and Semi Matte can stay about 4 to 5 hours and fades evenly. These lipstick range comes in wide range of colors however the Matte ones have more colors then other.
The Matte lipstick called Raspberry which is a dark plum shade. This shade is perfect for fall/winter season and the ones who love bold lips would love it. The other matte lipstick called Viva glam is a lovely dark mauve shade which is my favorite. It is perfect for trendy look. The Semi Matte lipstick called Hot Pink is a bright medium rosy pink shade. It is perfect for all skin tone and in every season. It is a medium dark shade which can be daily or on any formal event. The Glitter lipstick in G-821 is a stunning unique color and if you want a change in your look it is perfect. It is medium orange shade with gold glitter which looks similar to Sugar pill trinket but with more glitter.
Overall these lipsticks are gem in such price for lipstick lovers, they are highly pigmented, long lasting and have wide range of shades.
