When I first saw Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick inside my Flawless Beauty Glamourbox, I thought it was another tinted gloss masquerading as a liquid lipstick. Boy, was I so wrong! Upon swatching it on my arm, it quickly turned matte, which made me fall in love at first sight.
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach
Here's to a full lip color in one step! The vibrant colors of these liquid lipsticks will give you a vivacious look. Creamy and soft in texture, they moisturize the lips with antioxidants and Vitamin E. With five hours of staying power, they create a lipstick effect that does not feather!
The packaging of this liquid lipstick is simple - too simple for my liking. For something that costs almost P1,000.00, I expect a fancier packaging and not one that has a sticker for its label. (Which is now fading, after months of usage). For its price, the product itself better be worth it.
It comes in a slim tube with a doe-foot applicator, but I like blending it with my pinky to make it more even.
Before - During - After
Based on the packaging, I'd think Laguna Beach was a nude shade with pink undertones, but apparently it goes on dusty pink. It goes on from a creamy, highly pigmented formula to super matte in seconds. So amazing!
Laguna Beach is a very lovely shade of pink. Not MLBB, but it looks perfectly natural - nothing too Barbie or neon. And it's matte, what's not to love? It lasts really long too, around 4 to 5 hours, but that's without eating or drinking. (It starts fading when you eat or drink.) It comes in a yummy vanilla scent, too!
As for the cons, it emphasizes my lip lines and it dries my lips because of its matte formula. Example, I apply it in the morning when my lips are in a normal condition, but when it starts to fade and I need to retouch in the afternoon, my lips are sometimes flaky already - and flaky lips and matte lippies aren't really a good combo.

I have mixed emotions with this product. I love the shade, the finish, but I don't love how I end up with dry lips, so I make sure to have a matte-ish lip balm at hand whenever I use this.
