Hello lovelies, I’m back with another lip product review, and this time I chose Real Red of Medora by London. If you live in Pakistan and you’ve never heard of Medora, then you’ve probably been living under a rock. Medora by London used to be the only famous makeup brand until the international brands invaded our cosmetic market. Medora by London has a wide range of beautiful lipstick shades.
In my opinion:
This lipstick comes in a dark grey color packaging, and to be honest I really don’t like it. It’s dull and so not appealing. I know they say ‘looks’ doesn’t matter but sometimes I end up buying cosmetics just because of their colorful packaging *guilty*. Medora should really do something about their lipstick packaging.
I’ve been on a hunt for a matt maroon lipstick and I didn’t want to spend a fortune on it because I wasn’t sure if I could pull off the bold color. I searched online and found Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in shade 107 which is almost similar to this shade. But before I could order, I met Medora!
This is the mattest of the matt lipsticks, if you know what I mean. I’ve been wearing this shade a lot recently. For the day time, when I don’t feel like wearing a bold lip color I simply dab it on my lips and spread using my finger. The staying power of this lipstick is something that cannot be ignored, it stays on my lips for 7-8 hours after eating and drinking….what more do we want from a lipstick! I have dry lips so before applying it, I apply lip balm on my lips and then apply the lipstick. This helps me with the application and doesn’t chap my lips. You could also use a lip liner before applying the lipstick. Honestly I never understood the function of a lip liner but it works for most people so use it if it makes the application easy for you.
Price? Would I repurchase it?
100PKR. Makes you feel like you’re still living in the 90s, eh? Nothing can beat the price. If you’re afraid to try a dark shade on your lips and think that you might end up spending a lot of money and not liking how it looks on you, I would suggest spending 100PKR on this lipstick to do the experiment. And yes, I’m definitely going to repurchase it.
Great staying power
Might dry your lips
Packaging not appealing at all
Rating: 4.5/5 (-0.5 for the packaging)
Thanks for reading :) what's your favorite shade of lipstick these days?
