Start spreading the hues! OFRA Cosmetics has just released their gorgeous New York Skyline Collection and the best part. it’s available now! This collection features some of their boldest hues yet – perfect for your winter day and night looks! The colors are right up my alley and I am so happy to have these shades because it’s almost impossible to find shades like these at the drugstore. All five liquid lipsticks like all the other lipsticks from OFRA are so pigmented you literally need one swipe.
These liquid lipsticks are housed in transparent tubes with black caps. The packaging resembles a lip gloss tube and is very simple and sleek. I love the transparent tube because it makes finding a specific shade that much easier. It comes with a doe foot applicator and although I prefer brush applicators this one isn’t too bad and actually makes application more easier.
Swatches and pictures really don’t do these liquid lipsticks any justice. You really need to see them in person to understand how pigmented these are. The color pay off is unreal, what you see in the tube is what you get on your lips and with only one layer.
These liquid lipsticks have a mousse like consistency and apply like butter, literally. They feel creamy and lightweight on the lips. They do last a very long time so because of that they can feel a tad drying so I would recommend wearing a thin layer of lip balm underneath before applying this lipstick. Although these dry matte they don’t apply totally matte right when you apply them so you do need to let the color set for about a minute.
Depending on if you apply a lip liner underneath these lipsticks will really depend on how long they will last in my opinion. I have applied these lipsticks for the sake of this review without a lip liner and they’ve stayed out for a good 6 hours. With a lip liner underneath they lasted a good 7-8 hours!!! Yes you read that right. I don’t think I have ever had a lipstick last that long and I’ve tried a lot of “long lasting lipsticks”. Now if you decide to go eat at a buffet I don’t know if they will last that long but I did eat and drink carefully while wearing these lipsticks and the lipsticks stayed put.
Apply your preferred shade by placing the applicator wand in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center of your lips out around the edges of your mouth. These shades will give you nice even lines on the outside edges of your lips so no need to use a lip liner… unless you want to. You can also wait 2 minutes between application to build the layers and opacity you would like. Wait about 15 minutes for the color to set before eating. These liquid lipsticks are not lip stains and will transfer slightly but with plenty of color left on your lips!
Times Square is their very first silver liquid lipstick! It can be added on top of your existing lippies for a bold night out – perfect for News Year’s Eve! This shade is not an opaque shade and is meant to be used as an additive shade on top of your lips to give your liquid lipstick a metallic finish.
Fifth Ave is an elegant gold shade that will add a beautiful pop to your ombré looks.
Brooklyn is the brown liquid lipstick perfected! Take in the fall and winter season with this deep festive brown. This volor has changed my mind about brown lip colors. I have officially converted to wearing brown lipsticks.
Queens is a gorgeous dark purple with almost black undertones that will make you feel like royalty. I have been wearing this shade all week. I’m obsessed.
Manhattan is our take on this season’s mauve lips. A perfect everyday color that blends purple, pink and brown tones to create a daring all day hue.
