My order from Ofra finally arrived! I ordered two of their liquid lipsticks: Miami Fever (on the left), which was created by the beautiful KathleenLights, and Pasadena (on the right), which is the most gorgeous browny nudy pinky color.
Here are both colors swatched on the back of my hand:
In the below picture I am wearing Pasadena on my lips, plus you can see the hand swatches from more far away:

These remind me very much of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks as they have a very similar texture and feeling on the lips. Just like the Anastasia ones, the Ofra ones are very moussy and not completely smudge-proof as they don't completely dry but stay just a tiny bit tacky, which makes them more comfortable to wear, but cuts down on wear time as well. What makes them better than the Anastasia ones however (in my opinion) is that they last better on my lips, wear off nicer and don't leave that gross "line" on the inside of the lips, which Anastasia Pure Hollywood does :/
And can we talk about these two colors? I love both of them so much. Miami Fever is such a stunning unique color. It's something between an orange, a brick red, a terracotta...i did not own anything like this before. Pasadena is the perfect nude, and I mean PERFECT! :) it has the perfect amount of pink, beige and brown in it.
Kathleen has a code (KATHLEEN40) which gets you 40% off all Ofra products, so these usually are $19.90 but with her code they are only about $12 each which is such a good deal. I just wish Ofra knew more about international shipping - it's nothing new that the invoice has to be attached to the outside of the package so that it doesn't get stuck in customs (which happened in my case and caused a delay in delivery)...but other than that, I have no complaints :)
