Ofra Cosmetics: Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick

Last month, at The Makeup Show Orlando, I discovered Ofra Cosmetics. This line was one that I just seemed to be drawn to but, I didn’t know why. I didn’t stay too long looking things over at the booth before moving on. But, later that day, I found myself back there wanting to learn more. When all was said and done, I purchased several products to try out and the lovely staff of Ofra Cosmetics gave me this item to review…

Since I was going to give a new-to-me cosmetic line a try, I picked a shade that I would not normally wear. It was an opportunity to step outside the vanity box and try something new. And boy, am I happy I did! Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is awesome!!! I can’t wait to get other shades. In the meantime, I’m wearing ‘Sunset Beach’. This a lot more coral than I would ever wear on my lips.

The shade isn’t the only thing that is new to me. Check out this applicator…

That end is hard; it’s not a brush and it’s not flexible. I discovered that many makeup artists use a stick to apply lipstick rather than a brush. OK. So, I’m trying it. It’s different and, I would rather have a brush, personally. But, what I do is use the stick to smear some of the product onto my lips. Then, I use my finger to smooth it out. I’ll show you the end results in a bit. But, here is a swatch of ‘Sunset Beach’…

You can see that the lipstick dries to a matte finish. And, this liquid lipstick is aptly named; it is long-lasting. I found that it stayed on my lips for 5 hours with a gloss over it, touching up with the gloss at least 3 times. And by itself, it lasted close to an extra hour. All of that was with drinking water and chai tea throughout the day. That’s wonderful staying power.

See what it looks like on my kisser…

I have thin lips. I can’t change that. So, I think it is easier for me to wear bolder lip colors because it isn’t too over-powering for my face.

My eye look…

This is a very simple look. I have on just a touch of NYC’s Blushable Creme Stick in Plaza Pink. It’s still a coral pink and I wanted to tie it in with the coral shade of my new Ofra Liquid Lipstick. On my eyelids is Ofra’s Eye Gel Primer (which will get its own review because I am in love with it too!). Then I followed with MAC’s Paint Pot in ‘Soft Ochre’. Next, I lined my lids with Physician’s Formula’s Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner in ‘Black’. I used Lash ‘Em’s Double Trouble Mascara. The brows are done up with Senna Brow Powder and Wax. I finished off the entire look with a dusting of NYX’s HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder.

That’s it. I made it very simple but with some impact…

Again, since I am thoroughly enjoying the products I did purchase, as well as the Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, I do wish I would have purchased more. Fortunately, we can order from Ofra’s website. And, it should take too long for me to get my order since Ofra Cosmetics is based right here in Florida.
