Hi everyone! Today's post is about one of my favourite youtubers: NikkieTutorials! Here is a little bit information about Nikkie if you don't know who she is: Nikkie de Jager is a 23 year old Dutch woman who started a YouTube channel at the age of 14. She wanted to share her love and passion for makeup with the rest of the world. We're now almost 9 years later and she reached more than 7 million subscribers and had a collaboration with the cosmetics brand Ofra. Besides being a popular youtuber she's also a professional make-up artist. Nikkie loves a blinding glow and a good lipstick, so in collaboration with Ofra she created a highlighter and 3 liquid lipsticks. You want to know what this NikkieTutorialsXOfra collection is all about? Then keep on reading!
Since we're talking about Nikkie, let's start with the highlighter called Everglow! So in this collection there is also a highlighter with 3 shades in it. This is great because there should be a shade for everyone. There are actually 7 shades in this highlighter! You can wear them on their own or you could mix 2 shades together or mix them all 3 together to get a custom shade. The 3 shades in this highlighter are a frosty white, a champagne gold and a sun-kissed copper shade. Possible combinations: White + Copper = Rosegold | White + Gold = Frosty Champagne | Gold + Copper = Soft Bronze | White + Gold + Copper = a healthy glow. Let's get to swatches!
This highlighter is so soft to the touch and it glides on like butter! Each of the 3 shades are very creamy, especially the copper shade, it's so pigmented and metallic and works also really nice as an eyeshadow, they all do. They are all very pigmented and blinding, but the white is the most blinding off them all. I used the gold shade on my cheekbones and I went over it with the white shade to intensify that even more. I also used the copper shade on my eyelids, it's the most beautiful copper shadow for all over the lid. This will make blue and green eyes pop! I also used it on the lower lashline, I used the white on the inner corner and the gold on the browbone. I really enjoy this highlighter, it's one of the best ones I own! I really like the colors and formula.
Spell is a bright neon Coral with pink reflects in it. Surprisingly this shade doesn't look too bad on me. It's definitely not my everyday go-to and I would probably never leave the house wearing this lipstick, but it's really great for pictures! This one needs the most effort, it's not very opaque and whe your lips touch each other it can leave bald patches, but you could definitely make it work with a second layer. These lipsticks have a non-drying formula, they are matte-looking, but they don't dry down completely. It's almost like a moussy texture very comfortable on the lips! Your teeth can look a little yellow in it. This shade is very nice with minimal eye makeup!
Coven is a dark vampy brown shade with bronze reflects in it! I really like this shade, very opaque really flattering! If you like vampy colors and metallic lipsticks, this is definitely one for you! This has the same formula, also a nice moussy texture. These lipsticks also have a pleasent vanilla sent! For darker colores like this I suggest using a lipliner to prevent mistakes and to have a clean line. Thos shade is very pretty combined with the copper highlighting shade on the eyes! This creates a warm vampy dramatic look and I live for it! I like this one more than the coral.
Nude Potion has to be my favourite shade of them all! It's a nice everyday pinky nude. At first I was worried that it would be too pink for my liking, but it's the perfect nude shade! Like the last one this one is also very opaque, has the same moussy texture and vanilla sent. I am very pale, so I can get away with it without lining my lips, but if you're more on the medium or dark side I suggest using a darker lipliner or it would also be nice to use this to create an ombré-effect! Over all I really like this collection, Nikkie and Ofra did an amazing job, this was my first time trying Ofra products and I fell in love, I will definitely try out their other highlighters and lipsticks! I love the packaging, I love the products and I love Nikkie, so I'm glad I bought it!
This collection is still available on ofracosmetics.com , you can also buy each product separately, so if you're only interested in the lipsticks, buy these in a set of 3. Or if you only want Everglow and one lipstick, that's also possible. I ordered the whole collection on boozyshop.be at a very discounted price. It retails for $79.00 on the Ofra website, but I got mine for only €44.95 which is $52.90. You can also order each product separately on Boozyshop, they only don't have the lipstick set. So if you're from the Netherlands or Belgium, you get the whole collection for a discounted price and you'll have free shipping. Boozyshop also does worldwide shipping and free shipping above €100. So if you're interested: Check it out, it's worth it!
