Medusa is our purple matte lipstick shade, inspired by the snake-haired woman with the power to turn men to stone. This daring berry colour lipstick comes in our hydrating formula that dries to a matte texture for a smooth, satin-like finish that will stay on through eating, kissing, and whatever else you choose to do in your day. Intricately carved with elements representing women, this purple lipstick has been specially designed to withstand use yet maintain its elegant carving designs.

IT'S IN THE EYES CHICO

Medusa is known as the defiant, evil monster with the power to turn men to stone. Her portrayal as a snake-haired gorgon has been depicted in art, literature and cinema, immortalising her status as a mythological villain. While all accounts describe her as one of the three gargon sisters, Ovid wrote that Medusa was once a mortal serving as priestess to Athena but, after being raped by Poseidon in Athena’s temple, Athena cursed her, transforming her curls to snakes. She was later killed by the son of her rapist, Perseus, who used the power of her hair to battle before relinquishing it to Athena to use the weapon she had created at the expense of Medusa. 

The story of Medusa can be interpreted as a cautionary tale of monsters, a sad history of the demonisation of women, or, our personal favourite, a redefinition of Medusa as a strong woman who, despite struggle and strife, became a powerful lady who fought till her end. 

The dark purple-red shade is a powerful statement for the days you need a little bit of her strength or want to embody her determination. Besides, isn’t the idea of turning someone to stone fabulous some days?

Love the texture! This has become my fav shade!

I recently got hold of "Medusa", the stunning dark red purple shade, and let me tell you, it's become my absolute favorite. This lipstick gives me a glamorous and long-lasting look without drying out my lips. It's got this velvety matte finish that stays put all day, with just one touch-up after dinner. The packaging is sleek and posh! If you're after a comfortable lipstick, you need to try this.
