OFRA Cosmetics Island Time Collection – Review, Swatches & Photos

 

The new collection from OFRA Cosmetics is called “Island Time”, as the name suggests, is all about kicking back, relaxing, and basking in the glow of summer. “Island Time” consists of a lip set with three of our Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks, a brand-new Highlighter, and three brand-new baked Pressed Blushes! All the shades are perfect for summer with the golden tone of the highlight, a combination of coral and peachy tones of the lip set and blushes giving you serious island vibes!

The Pressed Blushes are specially formulated with a liquid-baked technology that allows for extremely soft, blendable, and pigmented blushes that each hold 10 grams of product. With a gradient range of shades, everyone will be able to find the perfect color for their skin tone.

What is summer makeup without a blinding glow? The brand new Highlighter in the multidimensional, golden shade Bali couldn’t be more perfect for summer. The formula is super smooth, buildable, and blends seamlessly due to our liquid to baked technology. It can be used to highlight any part of the face or as a shimmering eyeshadow!

 

Liquid Lipsticks

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.

 

Pressed Powder Blushes & Highlighter

Packaging
These pressed blushes are housed in a round black compact that feels very sturdy. The embossed blush adds a nice detailing to the blush.

Pigmentation
The pigmentation for all of the blushes and the highlighter is fantastic They are very pigmented so you definitely don’t need a lot of product which means they will  last a long time.  I like to use a fluffy brush and tap off any excess product. These blushes are a dream to work with. There is barely any fall out and they blend effortlessly into the skin and last all day. The highlighter is one of my favorites highlighters ever. It has a beautiful peach undertone and although it’s not very subtle I have been using it everyday, it adds the most beautiful glow to the skin.
