I’m not sure how I found Samantha March on YouTube, but I am so glad I did. Samantha has quickly become a favorite YouTuber of mine, besides her awesome makeup channel, she has a book blog, and she’s also a published author. I look forward to watching her videos every week, and when I learned that she was doing her first-ever brand collab with Ofra, I obviously wanted to support her since I love her content so much. I am beyond proud of her, and I wanted to share with you a review of the products. Here’s her official video sharing the collection:
Although the items in the collection will only be sold until July 22, some of the pieces were pulled from Ofra’s previous collection, so you can purchase each item individually. So I am going to share the individual links with you as well as the collab links. I am familiar with Ofra formulas, so I was extra excited to try these. I do not have any kind of affiliate Ofra code but Samantha( @marchbeautyword) does, it’s just Samantha, and it will get you 20% off your purchase!
The packaging was pretty traditional for Ofra, which I adore. I love how simple and chic the packaging is, It’s very minimalist as well, and we all know that I love style.
This highlighter is a combination of Samantha’s tow favorite Ofra highlighters Pillow Talk and Star Island. In the pan, you can swirl your brush around and use both shades, but you also can use a smaller brush and use either shade. I am a huge fan of pink and icy highlighters, so this seemed right up my alley. I know, I can use these shades on their own, but I seriously love using both shades for my cheeks! I’m literally obsessed with this highlighter, the glow from it is incredible, and it’s extremely long-lasting and has survived 90 degree days on the NYC Subway. It also gives you a slightly icy glow, which I really loved.
I like Ofra’s liquid lipstick formula, and I was excited to test it out because it’s been a while since I’ve really used one of the liquid lipsticks. The shades included in this set are Manila, Pasadena and Los Olas. According to their website, Manila is described as a neutral nude, Pasadena is described as a mauve pink-brown, and Los Olas is an amber nude brown. They can each be purchased individually or in the set at this point in time. I was really excited about the variety in this set, Samantha said she did this on purpose, to give buyers a taste of everything. The shades featured are some of her favorites. This product is extremely pigmented, and I adore this color story. It should come as no surprise that I enjoyed this product as well. The lipsticks are long-lasting successfully survived through my morning cup of tea and lunch.
Overall, I was really happy with this collection, and I recommend checking out the products while they last. If you do miss the opportunity to snatch up these items, I’ve shared links to the non-collaborated versions above.
P.S. the fluffy brush was a free gift with my order!
