Medora made in Swat – always been an attraction for me coz my not-so-makeup savy mom use to keep it and they’re being used only on occasions by her. That is why they become a thing for me. Like a gem which we use to see rarely. Then, the time came when we were allowed to use Makeup 💄& Medora became a staple and lost its charm slowly due to unavailability, the 90’s gloss craze & then my laziness to use chubby lip liners as lipsticks.
Nowadays when I see all the craze of liquid lipsticks and pigmented shades and all those variations of lip tints, I decided to pay a visit to good old Medora(out of nostalgia) to find out if it stays the same.
The packaging is the same but there are ingredients mentioned on it now. Made in Swat is still written there. It smells the same powdery scent. It glides on your lips like a creamy dream. Won’t dry out the lips while staying matte for hours. Will stain your glass of water though. The shade variety is amazing but availability is definitely an issue. You have to be a Medora die hard fan to keep looking for it.
As a matter of fact, I can’t stop loving Medora. For the price of my current favorite Nyx Copenhagen I can get 6 Medora lipsticks that can last for a long long time. People do complain about lips getting darker due to the use of Medora which I haven’t experienced myself so I can’t say much about. Maybe excessive or daily use or maybe old formula does that. Try getting fresh stock of Medora & do smell the lipstick before buying to check for freshness.
