Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks + Caked Lip Fondants
One thing about me, I LOVE online shopping. It’s not just about the convenience of stuffing my face with snacks while i sit back pant-less and just.. click. A large part of why I enjoy online shopping is because I’m pretty much a lone wolf when it comes to shopping. Unlike most girls who shop in packs, I’m usually set out shopping with a clear idea of what I’m looking for, and what I want, so my modus operandi is to just zoom in on what I want, get it, and make a quick getaway.
I’m pretty adventurous
when it comes to sussing out new/indie brands, and I love trying out new products which are sadly, usually not available in Singapore. With ridiculous international shipping rates, and the lack of friends who are as adventurous as I am to split the shipping cost with, I usually end up just abandoning my cart and not getting anything at all. (kudos to Colourpop and Kylie Cosmetics for free international delivery, yay!) This said, I was super psyched to discover Qolourette, a Singapore based online store which stocks internet favorites like Juvia’s Place, Morphe, and my newly discovered favorite – Caked. The Qolourette team were super kind, and sent me some of their popular items to test out, and here they are!
Got blown away…
These were the liquid lipsticks Qolourette picked out for me. I’ve never tried Caked, or OFRA liquid lipsticks before, but I was blown away by the quality of these lip colours. I’m not sure if it’s obvious, but that’s a liquid lipstick bar chart above, with my favorites being the nude pinks/ pink ones from Caked!
These OFRA lipsticks have a really smooth consistency and glided on like butter, giving a really rich colour payoff, and the metallic one, Versailles is just. magic! In comparison, these OFRA ones were less dry than the Caked lip fondants, and felt pretty comfortable on the lips. Laguna Beach (the pink one) is my obvious favourite of this lot, simply because it’s pink, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well Manhattan (the deep wine coloured one) complemented my skin tone!
The staying power of the Caked lip fondants, not to be punny, really takes the cake. First up, the lipsticks legit smell like CAKE, and once they go on your lips, they stay on. These dry like paint on your lips, giving a very pigmented and matte finish. I’d say it compares to Colourpop’s matte lipsticks in terms of its finish. I’m really loving these two shades that the Qolourette team picked out for me!
Here are all the lip shades, swatched on my arm! If you’d like to see these OFRA / Caked lip swatches, click on the video below to see how these shades fare on medium-light Asian skin!
Thank you again, Qolourette, for sending these babies over!
My final thoughts on OFRA long lasting liquid lipsticks
The OFRA’s are very pigmented so you can expect to absolutely cover your natural lip colour with it. It is also comfortable and a little moisturizing. OFRA used a formula that is just the right thickness so it does not bleed nor becomes patchy. However, with any sort of moisturizing hydrating lipsticks, don’t expect it to be transfer-proof so depending on how careful you are with your lips, it might or might not last as long as you’d like.
