Like many beauty bloggers, I have my favorite beauty bloggers I like to follow, whether it be on YouTube, SnapChat, Instagram or their blogs in general. One of my favs is, of course, MannyMUA!
Yes, I’ll admit that when the top people I follow post that they are collaborating with a brand, I’m more than likely going to buy their collaboration to check it out for myself.
When Manny’s pallet with Makeup Geek came out, I literally sat on my computer for 6+ hours trying to get it bought! I know, I know, you’re thinking, “Really? Why in the world would you sit on a computer for that long of time for a pallet that you know will come back in stock if it sells out?”. Well, yes, it did come back in stock, but you’re never guaranteed that so I sat on my computer and waited (im)patiently for my turn to buy his pallet and I wasn’t disappointed when it showed up at my door a week later! (Thank you Makeup Geek for all of your hard work during that launch and for getting my product to me FAST!!!)
So when Manny announced he collaborated with Ofra Cosmetics on THREE liquid lipsticks, (yes, he does have a liquid lipstick with Gerard Cosmetics as well), I knew I had to get them. I had been watching his YouTube videos and noticing he wasn’t linking his lip colors and I was getting so mad because I was loving what he was wearing… well, yes, you guessed it, he was wearing his new colors but they hadn’t been launched yet.
I was bummed when I missed the initial launch of the lipsticks as I was on vacation and completely spaced it! Thankfully they came back in stock a week later and I was on my computer as soon as they came LIVE to purchase again!
About a week later they were on my doorstep (Thank you Ofra for being speedy!) and I have to say, these liquid lipsticks are thebomb.com! Not only are they highly pigmented but they go on so smoothly and last FOREVER! Like all liquid lipsticks you do have to reapply it after you eat a ton of food or drink a lot but if you’re not doing that, these lipsticks will last you all day! WIN WIN!
So the colors he came out with are Aries, Charmed and Hypno and they are all beautiful!
Aries is a great nude color! It’s a little peachy for my taste but overall a great color to have in my collection!
Charmed is my FAVORITE!!!! This color slays me every time I wear it! It’s not too dark, it’s not too light, it’s the perfect mauve color that isn’t going to be too pink or brown. Sheer perfection if you ask me!
Hypno is fabulous as well! I put this color on and fell in love! It’s a great shade for a night time look OR even if you want to do a pop of color during the day for a meeting or something. Greatness all around!
I love when brands collab with these amazing YouTube MUAs. They werk their butts off to put out these amazing videos (some more than once a week) and they prove over and over that it’s ok to be you, it’s ok to put yourself out there and to just rock out! If it weren’t for the outstanding YouTube personalities out there, a lot of brands would go unnoticed so THANK YOU for including these people in your marketing, collabing with them and putting fantastic products out there for people like me to buy and try (and fall in love)!
Until next time…
