Aries, Charmed and Hypno Review and Swatches
One of the perks of my job is that I get to try our the latest shades from Ofra even before they hit the stores. I was super excited to get my hands on these lippies from the collab with the fabulous Manny MUA simply because the shades look so gorgeous and wearable. I've swatched and tested Aries, Charmed and Hypno wearing each shade for a whole day to give you my full take on them.
Get ready "MANNYACS"...It's finally here!
The Manny Mua x OFRA Cosmetics collaboration featuring three brand new classic shades is now available. The YouTube star teamed up with OFRA Laboratories to create three personalized shades: ARIES, CHARMED and HYPNO
Aries, a nude with peach-pink undertones, can be worn daily whether you prefer a fresh face or need to complete a more glam makeup look
The color may look intimidating and daunting at first but it looks really gorgeous once applied with a full "face" The description says it all, you can either pair this with light/neutral makeup for a fresh and feminine look or you can also pair it up with a more dramatic eye makeup. This has a slightly different consistency than most of the Ofra liquid lipsticks than I've tried, thinner and more watery but it is as opaque and comfortable once applied. This is more transfer-proof the the other two shades and lasted longer on me than Charmed or Hypno. Must be something with the different consistency. The color is quite similar to Ofra's Rio shade.
Charmed, a pink-nude mauve, is destined to become an instant classic for both day and night. This dusty rose hue is the perfect shade for those who enjoy a more subtle pink lippie.
Shade-wise is is the most wearable and best-selling lippie from the bunch and I can honestly see why. The shade is a really pretty neutral pink nude which reminds me a bit of Kylie's Posie K. Perfect for all skintones. Longevity is the same for most Ofra Liquid Lipsticks which means it stays put for a good 5 hours or so on me before the color starts to feather. Grab a tube before this runs out!;)
Hypno, an elegant burgundy, is a truly unique shade. It is a universal vampy red that any skin tone can rock with confidence.
If you're a fan of dark plum or wine lipstick then this is a super wearable shade that has just the right mix of warm and cool to look good on anyone. This has a thicker consistency and I found that this has lesser longevity than the other two but then again so are most dark lippies. It lasted me around around 3-4 hours before the color in the middle part started to fade,.
Ofra Liquid Lipsticks really have one of the best formulas for Matte Liquid Lipsticks and are reasonably priced and readily available in the country. These are super pigmented and long lasting and I love that it doesn't dry out my lips to the point that they start to hurt unlike the other liquid lipstick brands that I've tried. This collab with Manny MUA is no different and the colors were made with so much thought to make sure they flatter most skin tones.
If you're on the conservative side then Charmed is the perfect shade for you. If you're into more feminine and glam looks then Aries is a good match. If you're a huge fan of dark lipstick then Hypno is right up your alley.
