OFRA Cosmetics is the brand that a lot of us associate with beauty guru and YouTuber Nikkie Tutorials. Furthermore, their insane glow products continue to maintain top tier positions in a LOT of makeup kits. The best part? They have FINALLY brought their gorgeousness to our very own country of India.
OFRA hit the online market of our go-to retail store, Nykaa, yesterday. Fans of the brand have been waiting with baited breath ever since their official India page popped up on the gram. And the wait is finally over.
By now, you’ve already seen the collection, and of course, the prices. And let me be the first to admit that I am SO glad that this brand played their cards right. With the disappointment of the ABH launch still looming, OFRA is a welcome surprise.
The prices are just right, and I wouldn’t mind paying what they’re asking for. If you want to know what my personal picks are from the launch, then keep reading.
