Last week I discovered the website Estillo. They stock difficult to find brands and deliver them to your door in Dubai. Most of what I actually wanted to buy was out of stock, which is a blessing in disguise because funds are tight this month! I did however order some of the Ofra long lasting liquid lipsticks.
The colours I ordered were Dubai (obvs), Staten Island, Rio, Havana Nights and Miami Fever. They also threw in The Bronx for free which was a pleasant surprise when the delivery arrived.
My favourite shade is Miami Fever which surprised me, I thought it would be way too orange for me but it’s more flattering than I’d have imagined.
I also love Staten Island and Havana nights. Staten Island is that almost grey colour that has been very on trend for the past year or so. It’s not going to be for everyone but it’s exactly what I was looking for when I placed the order.
Havana nights is a deep red/burgundy shade and would be flattering on any skin tone. It’s probably the most wearable of all the shades I bought.
Rio is a peachy, orange toned nude. Maybe a little too orange for my skin tone but it would be beautiful on a more olive skin toned.
Dubai is, perhaps intentionally, the colour of sand. I can’t see me reaching for it very regularly but I will experiment, it might work better layered with a coloured lipgloss.
The Bronx is a black. As you can see from the picture it applies a little streaky. I didn’t really need a black in my collection but it was free so I can’t complain.
Now for the mini review:
- The formula is super lightweight
- They are a lot more comfortable to wear than most liquid lipsticks
- The colour range is beautiful
- The smell is too much for me. It’s like a really artificial cake and it’s STRONG
- It can take a few layers to get an even application
Would I buy more from this range? Definitely!
Thanks for reading everyone.
