OFRA Cosmetics Blissful & Rodeo Drive Highlighters Review and Swatches

OFRA Cosmetic's Blissful & Rodeo Drive Highlighters ($35) didn't work for me :( Waaagh! It's not the formula! They're super pigmented & pretty. They apply REALLY WELL on the skin. So what's the problem? They don't work with MY skin tone unfortunately! OFRA describes Blissful as a golden bronze highlighter with rose undertones. On me, it just looks DEAD. Now, I've seen Blissful on dark skin tones and it is gorgeous, but my medium skin tone is not loving it. Rodeo Drive is considered to be a "light golden hue". The picture of Rodeo Drive on OFRA's website, shows a light golden color, but when received ... it doesn't look like the color on the website at all. It swatched gold, but I would consider it 10K gold compared to MAC's Oh Darling and Anastasia Beverly Hill's So Hollywood. Plus on my skin-tone, it gives off a white gold casting. Unfortunately, I don't think I can work with either of these :( Thank God I caught a half-price sale! These are very popular and look great on many people, but my medium skin-tone is not liking them. I can't give these a Bittersweet rating just because they don't work for my skin-tone, because I've seen SO MANY others where it looks beautiful on. OFRA is now at ULTA. I would go to the store and swatch these before purchasing, to see how they look on you.

That's too bad they didn't work out for you Kim! They look like beautiful highlighters! I haven't tried anything from Ofra still!

Kris said...

xx, Kris

I've seen these around Kim generally with positive reviews. Such a bummer that they didn't work for your skintone. It's a good thing you got them on sale.

What a shame, Kim. Both of these shades look lovely in the package but you're right, they really don't seem to suit your skintone, which I would never have expected based on how they look. I guess that every product can't be a winner, but it's always so disappointing when you want to love something and really can't :(

Wow, the shades are amazing. Perfect for summer.

Bummer they don't work for you! I wonder how they'd do on my light-medium skin! Wish there was an actual store I could check them out in!

Oh damn, shame that these didn't work for you, Kim! I know many are huge fans of these because of the intensity but goes to show how makeup is so personal and different skin tone play a huge factor.

I have been loving these highlighter posts Kim. I have seen the Ofra one on Instagram. The design is really beautiful. I hate it when highlighters make our skin tone look white and ashy. Thanks for the honest review. Lots of love. Xxxx

Thats a shame. But skintone and undertone do play such an important role, it is bound to happen to all of us eventually.

Agree with the others,'s too bad these didn't work out for you, but honestly, in the pics above, they look ok esp. the Rodeo Drive. BTW, what do you do with the skin care/makeup stuff that don't pass muster? I tried giving them out but peeps stopped taking them! Having a hard time throwing some away so they just sit there on my counter:(
