Ofra Liquid Lipstick Lip Swatches and Review

I've always wanted to try out the Ofra Liquid Lipsticks ever since one of my favorite YouTubers, Kathleen Lights, raved about them. So when I found out that the ipsy site offered a deal to get the Sangria Liquid Lipstick Set, which included 4 colors for the price of 1 ($20), I had to take advantage of that opportunity.

Before I get into the shades, let me just give a quick rundown of what I think of the product. The texture and application process remind me a lot of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, which are products I LOVE. They smell like a less offensive version of the Milani Amore Liquid Lipsticks, which I can only describe as cake batter.

The Sangria Set came with the shades Pasadena, Ultimate Red, Mina, and New Orleans.
Reference: I'm an NC40/42 in MAC.

Pasadena | One of my favorites in this set. It's such a good nude, as I can see it being a darker nude for paler skin tone and a less offending nude for darker skin tones as well. I would describe it as a neutral browny pink, which are colors that I usually like to wear.

Ultimate Red | Not a big fan of this one, but it could be because I have always hated how orangey lip shades look on me. It says Ultimate Red, but it definitely leans a bit orange. I also had a bit of trouble applying this color evenly over my lips. When I did one coat, it looked fine but I wanted to build it up to it's full opacity so I tried going in with a second layer. That's when I started experiencing a problem with the color skipping over my lips. I don't know if you can tell in the picture, but there a spot on my upper lip that I couldn't quite cover completely no matter how much I swiped. 

Mina | My other favorite in this set. It's a deep burgundy that has a hint of a berry tone to it. It applied perfectly! This was the color I decided to test it's staying power throughout the day. It was weird because as I was drinking a cup of coffee, there was definitely transfer BUT the color stayed on my lips. The only part of my lips that had faded a bit was the inner rim of my bottom lip as I ate and drank throughout the day, so I only had to reapply to that inner rim. Every other part of my lip looked fine. 

New Orleans | A mid-toned purple that can definitely be layered to look vampy. It looks like a more slightly darker, berry leaning version of MAC's Heroine. I didn't use any lip liners in the lip swatches above, but if I were to wear this again, I'd line with a lip liner. It applied smoothly.

I do feel that the darker colors are more pigmented than the lighter shades. Overall, though, I really love these liquid lipsticks. I have trouble finding liquid lipsticks that feel comfortable on my lips (even though ironically I own a lot of them, haha).
