OFRA Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick Review


I want to share with you all one of my new favorite liquid lipstick brands, Ofra Cosmetics. Well, let me clarify.. They are only new to me, but definitely not new to the makeup industry! Ofra actually has their own factory where they create and manufacture their own products, which are bought and sold by other brands. They have been creating liquid to matte lipsticks for the past three years. They are super soft and velvety when applied and dry to a light matte finish, but they don't completely adhere to and dry out your lips like some other liquid to mattes these days. I actually really like that about them, because it makes mixing colors easier and isn't a pain in the but to get off. I actually think they feel exactly like NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and even have that same sweet butterscotch smell. I believe that you get more product with the Ofra liquid lipsticks than with NYX, but I'm out of town right now and don't have a NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream on me to compare sizes (I'll let you all know in my next Ofra swatch post)! I seriously am loving the color variety too! Here I grouped together some similar shades in the light nude brownish category, but I have a TON more unique and beautiful colors that I can't wait to share with you over the next week! To put things in perspective for you, I have way too many lipsticks to choose from on a daily basis, and "Mocha" has been my go-to for the past week, constantly at my side in my bag. They run about $19 a piece but I think they are completely worth it. Then again, I am a makeup addict. Use code "dupethat" to get 30% off your entire purchase! Have you ever tried Ofra liquid lipsticks? What do you think of them?!

Packaging
4.5 
 I love Ofra's packaging. The tubes are simple. Clear with black lids, and the name is largely printed on the side so they are easily found in my collection. The reason I rate these lower than usual is because we noticed that the tubes changed over time. Luckily, they changed for the better and apparently allow you to use more of the product inside! 
Scent
I don't detect any kind of scent from these. What would have put these on the top of my list is a delicious vanilla scent! 
Application
 Even the light shades are extremely pigmented. I've never had any problems with streakiness, patchiness, etc.
Pigmentation
 Amazing pigmentation.
Comfort
These are literally one of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks in my collection! They are light and moussey, and feel like you aren't wearing anything at all.
Longevity
 4.5
 Because these are light and moussey, they do not dry down to a transfer proof finish, and therefore don't last as long as many transfer-proof liquid lipsticks out there. However, we prefer comfort over longevity any day.
Dupability (Originality)
 Such an AMAZING range of colors from this line!

Overall Score: 4.7

  1. In terms of ounces, Ofra has about 0.011 more ounces than Nyx. Ounce for ounce, the Nyx one has more bang for your buck, being a little over 3 times cheaper per ounce.
