No one in Pakistan will be unaware of Medora Of London lipsticks. We all grow up seen these lipsticks in our mom and grand mom’s dresser. Medora is a very old company of Pakistan based in Swat. Medora has a wide range of lipstick shades at dirt cheap price.
It includes matte, semi matte and glossy lipsticks. It has some of high price lipsticks dupes as well. What else a girl need in her life😄😄
Medora lipstick comes in a cardboard box where shade name and ingredients are mentioned. Tube is made up of ordinary plastic and metal in grey and navy blue shade with gold detailing on grey ones and silver on navy blue ones which fades away very soon, where grey packaging is for matte and blue is for semi matte lipsticks. Shade and number mentioned on the bottom of the tube as well. Lid is easy to open and close which never gets loose easily. Tube is light weight but who complains at this price.

In summers my go to lipsticks are matte nude ones so basically I have more nudes in my collection with matte formula. I really appreciate that medora lipstick ranges from beautiful nudes to bold like most of good quality brands. It also includes a decent range of red which I am in love with but I own only one red medora lipstick because those are mostly out of stock.
I have 9 shades here but I have some more medora lipsticks which are not in a good condition that is the reason I didn’t include with these.
Medora lipsticks are truly pigmented only one swipe is enough for right pigmentation but you can build it up more according to your choice. These lipsticks glides on lips smoothly even matte ones. These are not transfer proof. Matte shades are not over drying and semi matte shades have a little sheen to it. It does not bleed. These medora lipsticks stays on lips for about 5 to 6 hours and then starts fading away but bold shades still leaves a stain on lips.
Matte lipsticks have more strong weird smell than semi matte which fades away after sometime. As I always said you need to moisturize your lips before applying matte lipsticks especially.
Twig 244 (matte): is a beautiful mauvey pink shade which can be used both in summers and winters.
Peach Silk 552 (matte): is a dark peachy brown kind of a shade which is best for summers.
Demure 561 (matte): is a beautiful peachy pink summer shade and my favorite as well.
Vin Rose 716 (semi matte): is a pink shade for summers.
Antique Pink 233 (matte): is a medium pink shade for summers.
Captive 562 (matte): is a maroonish pink shade for winters but not suitable for every skin tone.
Tender Peach 713 (semi matte): is a bright peachy orange kind of a shade which is again not a shade for everyone.
Full Fuchsia 556 (matte): is a bright dark pink shade for winters which is absolutely beautiful.
Crushed Rose 217 (matte): is a bold red shade for winters and entirely beautiful.
