Dupe alert: The perfect shade to replicate J. Note Cosmetics Ultra Rich Color Lipstick in 12 Sun Petal

The J. NOTE cosmetics lipstick in Sun Petal has, recently and conveniently, stolen the place in my heart/head/stash that belonged to Maybelline Colorshow’s Bold Crimson.

The shade is a perfect coral pink (or brown pink nude?) and is quite wearable literally for every single event you’d wanna wear a lip color for: work, college, bold eyes for a night out, everywhere. I’ve been wearing it EVERY DAY for most of the last few months.

Here’s what the stuff looks like:

I mini-reviewed these on the blog’s instagram, and these were my initial thoughts:
๐Ÿ‘‰The J. Lipstick costs about PKR 650 while the Medora is close to about a PKR 100-150.
๐Ÿ‘‰The Medora one has a buildable color tone and isnt as buttery/balmy as the J., tho its a steal for the price.
๐Ÿ‘‰The colors are verrry similar and perfect to do nude makeup looks with.
๐Ÿ‘‰The J. Lipstick (SunPetal) has made it to my list of MUST-MUST-MUST-HAVES and I kinda think I’m never ever getting sick of this shade. Buying a ton more when the bullet finishes. Verdict: ITS A YES, FOR LIFE.
๐Ÿ‘‰I’m not too happy with the packaging of the J. lippie. All texts and marks disappeared within a week of use; didnt expect this to happen this soon. Tho, no regrets there.

So let’s get down to some detail.

The formulaย on SUNPETAL (Note Cosmetics/J. Cosmetics) is absolutely buttery and I love how one swipe gives sufficient color to the lips, without feeling patchy or highlighting creases on the lips.

About the packaging, I think the lipstick gives away a pretty high-end sorta feel. However, the text and the shade details rub off instantly (within two weeks of constant use and travel).

PRICE: The product retails at PKR 650 here in Pakistan, and is sold under a joint collab between Note Cosmetics and J. Junaid Jamshed.

HERE’S….THE BEST PART

For those of you out there who think the price tag is a bit steep for this product, I’ve found us all a DUPE (TA-DA!!) by Medora cosmetics.

The product finish, formula, quality might not be as cool as Note, but would that matter if I told you the Medora dupe costs just a PKR 150 (or even less in some parts of the country)? I….don’t think so.

Also, since the Medora bullet is a semi-matte finish, it kinda makes the color feel a wee bit different from the Note SunPetal, but that’s also forgivable given the fact that it doesn’t promise anything like a matte matte result.

Medora cosmetics’ Cameo Pink, is a muted coral pink shade with AMAZING staying power, imo. It’s a pretty cool shade to be worn as a base to darker lip shades, but looks just fine on its own as well.

The only down side to it is that the formula is a tad too over drying and doesn’t feel as comfortable. But then again, we can’t really complain so much considering the product is even lesser than 50% of the cost of the NOTE bullet. WHOA!

Buy the Medora Cameo Pink bulletย hereย and the J.dot Note cosmetics Ultra Rich Color Sun Petal here, if you’re in Pakistan.
