Odho Cosmetics - Review , Swatch & Photos

Atiqa Odho is a popular and talented model and actress of Pakistani industry. In 2003, Atiqa Odho introduced her cosmetics brand names as Odho cosmetics. I remember buying my first red back in 2005(?) from HKB ,Lahore and it was an ODHO lipstick. I was smitten by the beautiful ruby red but my cousin loved the shade so much, she took it from me. After couple of years, the brand started to go in background maybe lack of advertising or marketing but i am glad that they picked up the pace and now we are seeing many Pakistani bloggers review on them. Nothing makes me happy more than to see a local brand offering some good affordable products . I was sent some of the stuff from "Odho cosmetics" and here is the review. 

Odho Eyeshadows
ODHO Single pressed eye shadows (ASPE)

  • Sweet dreams is a bronze with peach undertone.
  • Antique Rose is a cool tones true Barbie pink
  • Remember me is a bright Peach with hint of orange
  • Glacier is Gunmetal

The single pressed eye shadows apply best with fingers over a decent eye primer. I simply dab it over any eye shadow base, I also use MAC paint pots too. These come in variety of shades, some are easy to work with and some are little powdery/Crumbly. Among the four I currently own ‘antique rose” was little more crumbly and had fallouts compared to the rest. My favorite is sweet dreams.The packaging is standard round pots with a decent sized min mirror and a brush in the Bottom compartment. Odho Single pressed eye shadows (ASPE) costs PKR 250/-

ODHO Loose Shimmer eye shadows (ASLE)

  • Peridot is a shimmery olive
  • Aquamarine is a shimmery blue with purple undertone
  • Garnet is a shimmery copper with red/brown undetone

If you have been looking for super shimmery eyeshades to rock o desi weddings than look no further, these small jars are pure magic. Apply them over any glitter base( I recommend krylon glitter eye shadow base). These look gorgeous applied all over alone or paired with some other powder eye shadows or simply smoked out with an intense black for a glamorous look.They come in a small jar with red signature cap. Odho Loose Shimmer eye shadows (ASLE) costs PKR 250/-

Odho Lipsticks 

  • Bashful is a mud brown (cream finish)
  • Pleasure is a pinkish nude (Shimmer)
  • Peaceful is Jewel toned Purple (Metallic)

 A woman has many shades to her personality; She is passionate, bold, romantic, bashful, playful, yet always beautiful. Finally here is a range of powerful lipsticks that match every colour in your life

Within family of four shades Red/Pink/Orange/Brown are 40 obvious colours that makeup the perfect range of lipsticks. Odho lipsticks are animal fat free/lead free / Perfume free, in short making the whole lipstick range halal. The lipstick comes in a golden bullet with red caps. I have to say i do like the packaging. These lipsticks come in different formulas. I felt the one with glitter "Pleasure" was the most wearable shade but unfortunately the glitter was way too gritty and i didn't like how it felt on my lips.The bashful is very 90s inspired shade. These are creamy and pigmented, some shades are less creamier than other like the glitter ones . Also i felt the lipsticks were little drying and accentuated fine line. But overall i feel the formula needs little improvement for the price. Odho lipsticks costs PKR676/-

Over all i do recommend the eye products since for me they were the clear winner, Regarding lipsticks maybe the shades were little off for my taste or the formula, i have to say , i didnt love them as much as i was hoping for.Odho cosmetics is available in all major cities and you can check out list of stores/cities HERE .
