I love lipstick, but I adore LIQUID lipstick even more. For a girl like me that grew up on lipgloss, liquid lipstick is basically the 2.0 grown-girl edition of lipgloss. Naturally, when I discovered Ofra, I was stoked to to try their lippies. Read on to see my swatches and my Ofra Liquid Lipstick Review.
I think we can agree that liquid lipstick is where it’s at at the moment. Practically every brand has launched their version of the product, but not every liquid lipstick is created the same. I have high standards when it comes to liquid lipstick because a lot of them can be very drying and when I find one that I love, I have to rave about it!
About Ofra Cosmetics
I had my first encounter with Ofra Cosmetics a few years ago at the Makeup Show Orlando. I stopped by their booth and peeped their products, but I wasn’t too impressed initially for the simple fact that the packaging on their products was generic. You know I like pretty things, so I will admit that I judged the cosmetics company by its cover, but I still ended up walking away with a liquid lipstick because it was only $5. I didn’t have much to loose, so why not?
My only regret from that day was not buying all of the liquid lipsticks at the $5.00 price point!
Since then Ofra Cosmetics has kind of blown up online, especially on Instagram. Many would believe that Ofra Cosmetics is new to the indie beauty scene, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, Ofra Gaito founder of Ofta Cosmetics has actually been producing products since the ‘90s. No wonder she’s got the liquid lipstick down pat! Ofra Cosmetics spans beyond a cosmetics brand, and is also a cosmetics laboratory and manufacturer based in South Florida.
Ofra Liquid Lipstick Review
I love almost everything about the Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, but my favorite quality is how the formula feels on my lips. The texture is very buttery and applies smoothly in one stroke with great coverage. Speaking of application, you don’t have to worry about priming your lips because the formula doesn’t feather. The applicator is also user-friendly, making it easy to apply liquid lipstick without the need for a separate lipstick brush.
After the liquid lipstick has dried, my lips still feel cushiony and don’t feel dry. I hate when I apply liquid lipstick and it makes my lips tug, but this formula is completely the opposite. In fact, the texture is very creamy. The formula also contains antioxidants and Vitamin E to keep lips hydrated while wearing the lipstick.
In terms of wear, the Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick stays in place pretty good. One thing to keep in mind is that this liquid lipstick is NOT a stain. It won’t completely dry, meaning that this liquid lipstick is NOT transfer-proof. It’s a give take situation because that is the reason that it feels so nice on your lips. Although it doesn’t feel dry, the lipstick still appears completely matte. For me, the color lasts on my lips for about 4 hours, with the darker colors lasting longer than the lighter colors.
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Swatches
Ofra Cosmetics has a really good shade selection, so this is just the beginning of my collection. I love all of the colors that I have so far, but New Orleans is my first and still my favorite!
Pasadena– Soft pink nude
Havana Nights- Deep brick shade with hint of orange
Americano– Deep reddish burgundy
Brooklyn– Dark, chocolate brown
New Orleans– Deep plum with a hint of magenta.
Ofra Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick Review: Final Verdict
Naturally, when I find a good liquid lipstick, I stock up! I really like the quality of these lipsticks and the fact that they are cruelty-free. I also like that Ofra Cosmetics is in tune with their social community and teams up with influencers to bring fun new shades to their collection.
If I had to pick a down side, I would say it’s the thing that made me hesitant about the brand in the first place– the packaging. I can’t help it, I love cute components and I feel it’s what brings a cosmetics product full-circle on the consumer end. But I do have to say that the packaging has improved and at this point, even if the liquid lipstick were in a plain clear plastic tube, I would still buy it because the proof is in the formula!
