Medora Lipsticks Review & Swatches


About Medora Of London

If you’re from Pakistan, or you have parents/grandparents from the country, then you’ll know that Medora is a local brand which has been around since the dawn of time itself. Or, at least, since 1961.

Unlike most local Pakistani brands, Medora actually has a website which gives a decent amount of detail about the company:

Medora of London (Pvt) Ltd. was established in 1961 and is today one of the leading cosmetic companies in Pakistan . It is committed to its objective of providing high quality products at affordable price.

With brands “Medora”, “Delycia” and “Diplomat” being one of the best sellers in their respective categories, Medora of London has become a household name today. The trust gained has been as a result of constant improvement in the products by our team of chemists who are continuously striving to meet the expectation of the consumers.

Having a network of more than 200 distributors, the company is able to serve its consumers all over Pakistan.

Their lipsticks (plus the rest of their range of products) have been around since ever, and I’ve grown up watching my mother, grandmother, and aunt wear them daily.

I’ll be honest; when I was a kid, the quality of Medora’s products was good, but nothing to rave about. However, recently the brand’s name has been popping up everywhere, so I decided to give their lipsticks a try, and OMG, I’m so glad I did.

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek In Lunch Money: A Love Story

You guys. I recently just bought Colourpop Super Shock Cheek highlighter in Lunch Money, and I would advise you all to do the same, ASAP! (If you haven’t already, because these have been all the rage since last year, and as always I am late with my purchase.)

Says Colourpop:

Lunch Money

Soft light gold with a reflective golden duo chrome finish – lunch $$ well spent.

$8.00 USD

Fingertips will provide the highest amount of coverage. Brush suggestions: Use a flat synthetic cheek/ foundation brush or a duo fiber brush; flat synthetic brush will give more coverage and the duo fiber brush will give a more sheer, air brushed effect. WHEN FINISHED: Close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time; you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Cheek Pearlized so amazzzing. Colour builds from natural to a more intense look. … Build to your heart’s desire!

Honestly, after trying this shade, I want to buy more. In the same color. And then in other colors. Let me tell you right now: the hype about these is totally justified.
