OFRA LIPSTICKS MELT MY HEART

 

 

Liquid Lipstick and my lips; they have a sibling relationship. Love. Hate. It’s the worst feeling in the world when you’ve applied a beautiful liquid lippy, run out the house for a meeting, and arrive home to find that your lipstick has cracked worse than a Cadbury Flakey. Not cool guys. Not cool. 

Now don’t get me wrong, I am obsessed with liquid lipstick. Its easy to apply, the colours are vibrant and you always make a statement. You just have to find the perfect brand with the perfect formula of liquid lipstick. Lucky I have!

 

 

 

I am totally confident in saying that the collective world of beauty editors and makeup fundi’s all over South Africa were giddy with excitement with the official launch of OFRA COSMETICS Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks. For months, and months, and dare I say it again months, we watched enviously on Instagram and Twitter as women all over the world gloated over their highly tinted and need I say, moisturised lips to boot. Not to mention the plethora of shades. It was enough to send a beauty editor to therapy.  But ladies, now its our turn to show off! We got to play with 18 shades and we can’t wait to give you our thought on them.

First, a little background on who OFRA Cosmetics are. 

Ofra Gaito, a therapist and makeup artist, entered the beauty industry in 1979. During the years she lived in South Africa, Ofra worked in the field of aesthetics. She traveled and completed several courses with well-known cosmetic brands in Germany, France, and United States – including earning her prestigious, postgraduate, CIDESCO course in Johannesburg. The CIDESCO diploma remains the highest, qualifying certification in the field of Esthetics and Beauty Therapy that can be achieved by an individual. After the success of her first salon and spa, Ofra opened a second salon and spa which thrived throughout the ‘80s. In the early ‘90s, Ofra expanded her business to include products distribution for European cosmetic companies in South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. This growth increased distribution to over 400 new locations. By 1994, Ofra and her husband, David, created their own line of skin care and makeup products and OFRA Cosmetics was being produced stateside. Ofra and David relocated to the United States in 1998 and opened manufacturing facilities in Ft. Lauderdale. Today, OFRA is an internationally recognized name in the beauty industry. OFRA has a distinguished client list – including international celebrities, well-known franchises like Miss Universe, Olympic athletes, politicians, judges’ wives, prime ministers, and a variety of other famous personalities.

OFRA Cosmetics is not just another makeup company or skincare line. It is a leading manufacturer of professional skincare and makeup. In addition, OFRA is currently the top supplier of beauty kits to over 750 United States cosmetology schools and salons.

With 20 years of manufacturing experience, OFRA Cosmetics – led by Ofra and David – has distinguished itself as an innovator within the beauty industry. Along with supplying products to 23 countries, including the United States, OFRA continues to anticipate the latest international makeup and skincare trends and advance the beauty industry from within.

 

Now onto the beautiful Long Lasting Liquid Lipsitcks. Why have liquid lipsticks had such a crazed effect on the world? Well, they’re easy to apply, blend seamlessly, come in a variety of colours from muted natural nudes to vibrant and bold greens and blues. Trick is using an amazing lip conditioner before applying. I use my LUSH Bubblegum lip scrub to exfoliate my lips first and then I apply a generous coating of CHANEL’s Rouge Coco Shine Baume.  The OFRA formula are creamy and soft in texture. They not only moisturize the lips, but create a long lasting lipstick effect. We don’t even use lipliner with these. If you position the applicator at the base of the lips, this liquid lipstick gives a beautiful edge to your lip look!

 

 

The best way to apply a liquid lipstick is to start in the centre of your lips and then branch out onto each side, making sure to coat the inner lips as well for the kissable pout look. The OFRA formula is a matte formula but if you want to add some shine just add a little gloss to the centre of your lips. All shades contain antioxidants and Vitamin E while the formula provides a lightweight layer of lasting colour to make you look stunning all day. 

Now we put these babies to the test. OFRA says that the colour will last in a perfect condition up to five hours without eating or drinking, and for best results do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after applying. So that’s what we did. It dried completely matte and then we went to town. We ate, we drank hot coffee, we even doused cotton pads in Garnier Micellar water to try and get it to budge - nothing.

So - you now know about OFRA Cosmetics and why we love their Liquid Lipsticks. Only one thing left to do - SWATCH them for you!  (Swatches are from the lipsticks above. The first eight are the top row, and last eight are bottom row)

OFRA Cosmetics has cemented its status as a cult classic. Its a holy grail product amongst everyone and I haven’t got one bad thing to say about them. They definitely live up to their hype. The multitude of colours to collect adds to the fun, and I cannot wait to review the rest of the collection. Personally I have different ones stashed all over the place for on the go lip style. From my bathroom, handbag, car and makeup organiser, they’re everywhere.  

They say that good makeup can brighten up and enhance every girls features, and that a great pair of heels will make you feel like you can take on the world. But what about our smile? I firmly believe that your smile says it all. Think about it - when we smile, we say something to the world about who we are, and how confident we are.  Shouldn’t we be smiling our best, wearing our best? We all know what they say about happy girls? They shine and smile the brightest. So start smiling your very brightest with OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks today!
