I am not a big fan of makeup however if there is one thing I am addicted to its lipsticks.
This month for my shopping spree at BasharaCare I couldn’t resist not getting the Long Lasting Liquid Matt lipsticks (LLLM) from Ofra Cosmetics.
These products are my first purchase from this brand. I remember seeing their lipstick review videos on Youtube and instagram. So this was the perfect opportunity to try out and review Ofra Cosmetics for BasharaCare. I got the shades Charmed and Mocha. There are both on the nude range which is right up my alley. Love BasharaCare offer quite a good selection of colors.
Mocha – is a shade that Dalalid wears often and I remember making a mental note of it a beautiful brownish-pinkish shade which can be worn both during the day time and night-time.
Charmed – is more of a nude pinkish down with a slight orange tinge to it more like a peachy tone!
If you have tried any matt liquid lipsticks you may have noticed that they tend to have a VERY drying effect on the lips which gives you a wrinkly look and feel (not very comfortable either might I add). Therefore,I don’t blame you for avoiding them but trust me that you won’t face that problem with Ofra’s LLLM.
The forumla is surprisingly very moisturizing despite it being matt. I presume the fact that the formula contains antioxidants and Vitamin E which helps keeping the lips hydrated. In other words its non-drying and feels like you aren’t wearing any lipstick!
I did notice that it had a slight pleasant scent but it didn’t bother me and you can hardly smell it once the formula dries but its’ worth mentioning in case you are the type that doesn’t like scents in products.
In terms of longevity or staying power I must admit that I am quite impressed by how long it managed to last on my lips. Considering I drink a lot of water during the day, I did notice that it came off on the rim of the bottle or straw but it wasn’t noticeable and easily lasted a couple of hours before I had to reapply.
As for the packing I love the shiny brown cap and the overall feel of it. It is simple, practical and does the job perfectly. The applicator was easy to control which made the application of it on the lips a breeze.
Now let’s talk about the price, each one retails for 11 OMR which is quite reasonable in my opinion. Once opened it must be used within 24 months i.e. 2 years which is good value for money.
Staying Power 4/5
If you are in search for a liquid lipstick that is light on the lips, has good staying power and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Then I would highly recommend you try this Ofra’s Long Lasting Liquid Matt lipsticks.
For those who reside in the GCC you can get them from BasharaCare. I was super impressed with their fast delivery as it arrived 2 days after I put in my order!
Oh and they called me to check that the address was correct, definitely have a client for life!
Get this they also offer you 3 product samples which you get to choose upon checking out, sweet…
