I’m back with another review on the Madison Miller collaboration with Ofra! Today we’ll be looking at the liquid lipstick she came out with. Once again, Ipsy came in clutch with this collection so I was able to purchase this sample through their add-on program.
Color: The Ofra website lists this color as a “neutral mauve-pink”. This is a very accurate descriptor – this pink shade definitely has a purple undertone to it, but not so much that I’d consider it colorful. However, I do not consider this a nude on me, as the color overall is quite pink.
Finish: With this being a matte liquid lipstick, it does dry down to a mostly-matte finish. Ofra liquid lipsticks tend to stay just a touch shiny, as they don’t fully dry down for comfort’s sake. That said, there’s not so much of a sheen that it’s noticeable, so it will still look like a matte lipstick on the lips.
Packaging: The packaging for my lipstick is actually the sample packaging – Ofra’s full size products come in square tubes. However, the tube between both is still acrylic with the matte white cap. The printing on the label looks to be the same as well, but all in one area (as pictured) instead of on different sides like it would be with the square tube.
I don’t know if it’s because my lipstick is relatively old or the sample packaging, but I did have an issue with a piece in the cap coming loose and sticking to the stopper. I can put the wand back into the tube and it will return to the cap instead of continuing to stick, but just something to note.
Applicator: The applicator is a standard doefoot that works well with most liquid lipstick formulas, and this one is no exception. The doefoot is also pretty smooth, so no spots where it’s fluffy and makes it difficult to get a clean application.
Application: With the formula being slightly moussey, there were times where a little too much product came out on the wand and I had to scrape it against the stopper to remove the excess. Actually applying the product was incredibly easy; the shape of the doefoot makes it easy to get nice lines and an even application.
