MannyxOfraCosmetics Liquid Lipstick Review





So if any of you are huge fans of Youtuber star, MannyMua like I am then I am sure you have heard all about the collaborations he has done with various brands over the past year including: Gerard Cosmetics, Makeup Geek and now Ofra. And believe me, he is no stranger to breaking the internet with his sell out products, this collab is no exception.

His latest releases are 3 liquid lipsticks.. Aries, Charmed and Hypno which are all on trend colours with the brand Ofra Cosmetics, which is an American cosmetic brand who are very popular in the US. 

These lipsticks were limited edition but today (11th May) Ofra announced these will be back in stock on the 15th May and they will be PERMANENT! So lovely to see a brand listening to the customers who have all been wanting these made permanently available. 

Ofra is a well loved brand throughout the beauty community and are well known for their huge selection of long lasting and high quality liquid lipsticks..Many other Youtube stars like Kathleen Lights rave about these and for good reason. (Kathleen has also collaborated with Ofra to make her own liquid lipsticks which are Miami Fever and Havana Nights.)




You can buy each lipstick individually or altogether in a set of 3. 
I picked up all 3 since I have always wanted to try Ofra liquid lipsticks so it was a perfect chance to do so and you save money if you buy in a bundle rather then purchasing seperatly.

I ordered mine directly from the US site since you cannot purchase Ofra products here in the UK..

Each lipstick was $19.90 which is the same price as all the other permanent liquid lipsticks and that converts to around 14 pounds here in the UK. The set was around $50 which converts to around 34 pounds. BUT if you use Manny's affiliate coupon code MANNYMUA you get 30% off so I got my kit for only £30.46 including postage! Such a great saving and I think thats a very affordable price for 3 lip products. (I had no custom fees to pay either.)

(International postage is $13.95 or £9.55 in the UK)

The discount code can be used throughout the whole site and can be reused as many times as you like.

I could not wait for these to arrive but first hand I am abit disappointed, although Ofra have redesigned their packaging and it looks lovely, I am abit gutted that there is no sign of Mannys name on the product which I think would of made a nice touch to his limited edition collaboration. This is only a small con because the products themselves are beautiful.


Now on to the lipsticks..
Like I mentioned above I purchased all 3, again they are Charmed, Aries and Hypno.

 
Aries

Aries is a lovely peachy nude shade on me but on others it looks more pinky toned. I feel like these sort of shades wash me out too much so I never tend to reach for them but this looks so pretty for the Summer time. 

The formula is really nice and creamy and very opaque with just one layer. None of the lipsticks crumble or give that horrible white ring on the inner part of the lips which many tend to do to me.


Charmed

Charmed is my most favourite shade in this set and also one of my favourite colours to wear everyday. This is a dusty rose colour which looks lighter on the lips compared to the swatches I showed above. Still beautful and very wearable on a daily basis. Again this is a creamy formula, doesn't apply patchy and all the lipsticks smell like cake too which I love. 

Ofra claim they are long wearing, which is 100% correct. Charmed lasted 6/7 hours on me throughout the day before it had started to fade and even then it still had a slight tint to the lips which is amazing! It was so comfortable to wear and dried down to a nice matte finish that didn't feel too dry on the lips.


Hypno

I love this shade Hypno, since it is a dark burgundy shade I was expecting it to be abit patchy and take a few applications to achieve full opacity but that wasn't the case at all. One layer was enough to create a bold lip and it was pretty easy to apply aswell without a lip liner. I don't think I would wear this one as much since it is so deep toned but in the Fall this would look really pretty on every skin tone.



Overall I think Manny did a great job in creating colours that would suit every skin tone and are all on trend shades, there is something for everyone.

If you get the chance to get your hands on these then I would recommend you do.. They are out of stock at the moment but will be restocked on the 15th May.


When I heard Manny was working with Ofra I was so excited for him. It is so hard for men to make it in the beauty world (stupid, I know.) and he truly deserves every opportunity he gets because he gives so many young boys and men the confidence to be themselves and live their lives how they want. So inspirational to many. God, the guy does makeup better than most girls! He is so funny to watch and I recommend his Youtube channel to everyone!
