Just like with my recent ColourPop haul, I had been stalking the Ofra website and reading/watching review and swatch posts/videos on the liquid lipstick range. So I went for it and purchased three from the line. I also got 30% off using KathleenLights coupon code. (I think it is Kathleen30).
I chose bright colors for spring and summer. I picked Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Atlantic City (in this order in the picture below).
I have swatched each one on my lips below (in order of Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Atlantic City). And I’m sorry for the lighting in the last frame…it was after dinner, and I didn’t have great lighting.
So far, I love Santa Monica! It’s not too bright, but still vibrant enough for both spring and summer. Hollywood swatches a little patchy and got all over my teeth, so not my favorite. Atlantic City is a traditional red that looks great on everyone.
The formula is very creamy. And other than the patchiness of Hollywood, the pigmentation is on point. Very opaque and doesn’t require multiple layers. I wore Santa Monica most of the day on Sunday and wore it out to a friend’s house for game night where cocktails and chips and dip were consumed. I was pleasantly surprised by how long lasting the pigmentation was considering the creamy nature of the formula. And when I wanted to reapply, it reapplied well over itself without clumping. The formula is also not as dry as some other liquid lipsticks, but it’s also not transfer proof. It’s going to transfer! However, it doesn’t run outside the lip line either.
Overall, I am impressed by the formula and wear of these lippies. I would consider other colors down the road, especially if I can use a 30% code from one of the popular YouTubers. Leave me a comment below if you have tried this liquid lipstick range.
