Ofra Eyeliner Review

 Today I want to talk to you about a less widely known brand: Ofra! I discovered them when I was sent an eyeliner in an Ipsy bag a few months ago, and their products are something I think anyone with an interest in makeup should definitely check out, purely based on this one amazing eyeliner.

I received this in Turquoise, which at first I found odd since I have medium brown eyes. However, as I soon realized and I’m sure most of you already know, applying blue eyeliner around brown eyes really makes them pop from contrasting with the whites! I’ve been wearing it so much it’s all worn down, and I forgot to sharpen it before this photo-oops!

This eyeliner is made with a synthetic beeswax, so it goes on extremely smoothly, a plus with eyeliners. I hate when they pull at the sensitive eyelid skin. It’s also waterproof, and really long lasting! I find it rare that waterproof eyeliners actually work how they’re supposed to, so this one was a nice surprise!

As you can see, this eyeliner looks very blue on the skin and in the packaging, but online the photos advertising it look extremely green, so beware before buying this in any other colors! A wide range is available online as well. Get this eyeliner here, for $13.00 USD.

I’ve also recently gotten a lipliner from Ofra, and while I haven’t gotten a chance to test it out throughly yet, it seems great too! What do you think? Have you ever tried anything from Ofra? What are your favorite not-so-well-known makeup companies? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

What’s In My September Ipsy Bag?

septipsy1

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well so far. Today I want to share with you what I received in my September Ipsy Bag! I keep falling more and more in love with my Ipsy subscription each time I receive a bag. This month’s theme was Face Fashion, and the photo insert featured natural and golden bronzed looks. I love the bag that everything came it, the textured surface is so pretty and I love the color! It’s perfect for fall.

Let’s take a look at what I received!

Formula X nail polish in Obsessed. This is a dark burgundy shade that’s perfect for fall! I received a Formula X nail polish in a previous Ipsy bag, and the color and quality were amazing! You can check out my review of it here. I like this merlot color even better than the previous peachy shade!

Next up, the Clarisea Sea Salt Solutions Rapid Detox Charcoal Face Exfoliant. That’s a crazy long way to basically say it’s a charcoal face scrub haha. I can’t wait to test this out!

This is the Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty! I’ve never tried anything from this brand, but I’ve heard really good things about them. Since I have dry skin, this is a perfect product for me to test. I can’t wait to review it for you guys!

This Trestique Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude is one of my favorite things in this bag. The shade is a perfect “my lips but better” color, and even though it’s matte, it’s not too drying.

And last but not least, this NYX eyeshadow trio! The color palette is designed through Ipsy to match the September theme, so I couldn’t find it to link it. I love the shades though, they’re amazing and extremely pigmented!

My Fall Drugstore Makeup Picks

  As fall quickly approaches, I think it’s time to begin switching over my makeup collection! Just like you change wardrobes as the seasons change, I change the contents of my makeup bag. However, I’m a broke college student who doesn’t have much spare cash to spend on makeup sadly. So here are my top makeup choices for fall that don’t break the bank-in fact, all of these are less than $4 each!

I told you in my August Favorites post how much I’ve been loving baked eyeshadows lately! This one from Jordana Cosmetics in Bronze Gala is such a gorgeously bold metallic, and fall is all about those metallics! I use this wet for a bold look, but you can also use it dry for something softer. Bronze Gala Eyeshadow, $2.49

This blush is also from Jordana, and I picked it up in the shade Redwood. I think darker blushes are the way to go for fall, because they give you that chilly air flush. This product is satiny with just a little shimmer. Find it here for $2.99! It comes in a few dozen other colors as well.

A red statement lip is classic fall makeup, of course. I’ve been loving chunky lip pencils lately, and this LA Colors one is a great way to rock that fall lip! It’s somewhat sheer, but can be layered to give the appearance of a stain.

 And of course, since fall weather is so drying on the lips and skin, I always have a few of these Baby Lips chapsticks lying around! You can get them in tinted, sheer, and SPF 15 varieties for just $3.99 each from Maybelline! This is one of my favorite brands, I’ve got a couple in every purse! Find them here.
