Full Fuchsia by Medora Review, Swatches & Comparison.

Medora Full Fuchsia
 Hello Readers Dont you love it when you find a wonderful shade of lip color which is also very affordable???   I really love it if I find a good color of lipstick within reasonable
amount.  Today I am going to review one of my great finds. 

Its a full
fuchsia lipstick by Medora. I believe ,the brand is available on all the cosmetic stores
across Pakistan.

I love loud lip colors & this one is really pretty, perfect to make a statement,comes in a typical plastic tube. Its a loud
fuchsia pink with a matte finish. The lipstick stays put for good
time & leaves behind a horrible stain. The lipstick can be worn
under a lip gloss & looks good on its own. The lipstick is super pigmented but a little dry takes a few hard strokes . The longest I have worn it is for three hours but it fades off in the inner corners of my lips after eating & drinking (which looks really bad). I got mine from a local
cosmetic store for PKR 100. I have also
compared it with my Mac Girl About Town lipstick & you can see how
close these two colors are.

Medora Full Fuchsia Matte 556

 Here I have compared it with MAC Girl About Town too have a look

Pretty In Red! (Medora #554)

Medora Luscious Rose Matte # 554

Hello Dear Readers!

How have you been? My today’s post is about another red lip color.
 This one is  also from Medora Luscious Rose # 554. Its matte and sometimes dry up my lips. its tasteless, pretty cheap I must say but it has got fragrance in it so if you are someone who is sensitive to fragrance than I would give this product a miss. If you are looking for something cheap , pigmented and long lasting then you should check this out. It stays put for good 3 to 4 hours and yes it leaves behind a stain. The  packaging is OK  not too good quality vise.

This lipstick looks fabulous under a lip gloss or can be worn
on it’s own. I love how matte it is, it is heavily pigmented also. The retail price of this lipstick is Rs: 80 but I got mine for Rs: 95 and the best part these lipsticks are available at every cosmetic shop. 


Pretty in Red Medora # 222

Medora Gypsy Rose 222


Hello Readers!

How is Ramadan going? This post is for all lovers of red lip color out there. 

Before getting married I use to
have only nude and pink shades of lipsticks but after my marriage I discovered
the beauty of red lip color. I love red lip color and I own so many different
shades of it. One thing that you would always find in my make up bag
is red lip color. Today I am going to talk about a really good and really cheap
red lipstick. It’s Medora’s Gypsy Rose #222. This one is my all time favorite
cheap red lipstick I am not even sure whether people still buy Medora’s
products or not because the brand itself is so old, I remember my mother used
to use Medora Lipsticks. Let’s get on with the review of this lipstick.

 The lipstick has got really nice matte finish
which I really like, so if matte finish is your thing then you will love it. It is one of the most heavily pigmented lipsticks I have
seen, the color pay off is amazing. The lasing power of this lipstick is nice
it stays put for like 3 to 4 hours without touch ups. It is super duper cheap I
got mine for like 95 Rupees but the retail price is Rs 80. It does dry out my
lips at times as it is matte. You get a ton of product in Rs 80 I am not sure
how much it is as it’s not mentioned on the tube. It has got little vanilla-ish
smell to it. Hard hand would be needed in winters to apply it otherwise works
fine n glides on easily in summers. The one thing which I really don’t like about
this lipstick is that it fades away awfully. Anyways if you are fan of matte
red lipstick then go grab this one.


Here have a look at the swatch. 

 Have you tried this one? Whats your take on it?
