Although I’ll skip the freezing temps and snow, I’ve been in a New York state of mind since my trip there earlier this month. Returning home to find the additions to OFRA Cosmetics New York Skyline collection has the city on my mind times 10! New to the city inspired collection of liquid lipsticks are Staten Island, Harlem and The Bronx. OFRA is #1 in the quality liquid lipstick game and I own nearly every shade but I’m not going to hide the fact that I thought I was only going to like Harlem. I just knew it. Or did I?
Staten Island is such a pretty color but when you have a deep skin tone many shades are tough to wear, especially light shades. Throw in undertones and personal preference and your options can quickly become very limited. I didn’t hold much hope for this shade working for me but it did. Also I didn’t mind the compliments from strangers when I wore it, not one bit. 😉 I think this is a shade that is perfect for mixing with other colors!
Harlem has a solid hold on being my favorite of this liquid lipstick crew. For the last few years I’ve switched from avoiding dark lip colors to being soul mates with them. Harlem, I adore you! OFRA has once again made it hard for me to decide which lip color to wear each day.
When it comes to makeup, it’s sometimes a good thing to go beyond your comfort zone and try new things. Like black lipstick! Never have I ever worn or desired to wear black lipstick. So imagine my surprised when I tried on The Bronx and wait for it…I liked it. It’s not as dramatic as I thought it would be and talk about boosting your chompers. I always knew red lipstick helps teeth appear whiter and apparently black lipstick does too! I wouldn’t wear this shade regularly but I will indeed wear it.
You should really check out the rest of the OFRA Cosmetics liquid lipstick line. You’ll thank me! 😉
