OFRA Cosmetics New York Skyline Collection New Shades – Review

 

 

OFRA has done it again. With the release of three new shades to the New York Skyline Collection.  Seriously when I seen the new shades I kid you not I had to take a deep breathe because these shades are right up my alley and so different than what I have in my collection.

Packaging
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.

Pigmentation
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.

Formula
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.

Staying Power
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.

Application
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!

I have said it many times before OFRA makes the best liquid lipsticks in my opinion. They offer so many shades and the consistency is there with each and every one of their products.
