We can never go wrong with Pink when wearing pink lipstick , for some light pinks work amazingly and for others its the bright pink that makes them a head turner ! I am a sucker for pink lipsticks and whenever I get a trip to the market, I always end up with a pink lipstick despite the constant reminder to myself that I should start getting other colors now :D . Enough with the rant ,coming to today's review , Medora Of London has been all the rage in the Pakistani Blogosphere lately and I am a part of it so here is my share of these gorgeous pinks by Medora !
|(L-R) Soft Kiss, Sea Pearl & Rose Candy|
Medora Of London is not new name for us who live in Pakistan for this brand has been here for our mums and grand mums . Back then the color range was very limited but now Medora has made a come back with a huge range of colors and textures ranging from Mattes to Glossy ones giving us the pleasure of trying out all the colors we want .
During my last trip to the market I picked up 3 pinks from the Semi-Matte range and have been loving them all since then . The semi matte range comes in a Navy blue packaging with a silver strip ,nothing much fancy to go Ga-Ga about. The bullets are almost the same as printed on the box and have an amazng pigmentation, one swipe give you full coverage and you can build up further to your own desire .The lipstick glides on smoothly and I experienced no patchy application. The semi matte texture gives hydration to lips and gives a lovely finish . The staying power is super amazing ,for a lipstick eater like me it lasts a good 5-6 hours with constant chatting and munching around.The smell is something like a cross between baby powder and soap (if this makes sense). Its available all over Pakistan almost at every shop , be it a big fancy shopping mall or a small cosmetic shop . Only thing is the availability of colors that might be an issue.
There has been a debate about Medora Lippies having high lead content and turning lips dark , for that I can only say that most of the lipsticks have lead content in some amount but no mention on the packing about the ingredients just makes every one skeptical . For turning the lips dark , I would say proper removal and regular exfoliation can prevent that easily as I am using it for past one year and I havn't experienced any darkening of my lips .
