YouTube-famous brand, Ofra Cosmetics, is well known for its comfortable liquid lipsticks and blinding highlighters. However, nearly every review I see comes from an influencer that receives PR or affiliate sales from the brand. Are the highlighters truly as good as everyone says? Read this honest review of the Ofra Cosmetics Pillow Talk Highlighter.
About Ofra Cosmetics
Founded by Ofra and David Gaito in 1994, OFRA Cosmetics aims to provide wearers with professional quality makeup and skincare. OFRA sells a wide range of products, including skincare and makeup. However, the brand is most well-known for its blinding highlighters and high-quality liquid lipsticks. Read more about Ofra’s brand story.

Ofra Cosmetics Pillow Talk Highlighter Claims
The Pillow Talk Highlighter promises to provide wearers with a plush, pearl pigment icy pink glow. Light is captured in “all the right spots.” The pearls in the formula provide a highly luminous glow to the face with “unparalleled” pigments and “showstopping” sheen.
Packaging & Price
The Ofra Highlighters come in godet pans in a chunky white compact. I love that the compacts are magnetic and refillable. Buying a single godet refill is a much more sustainable option than purchasing a new highlighter. Also, each compact comes with a mirror.
The full-size Pillow Talk Highlighter retails for $35.00. Meanwhile, the singular Pillow Talk Godet retails for $25.00. Additionally, the full-size highlighters are $3.50 per gram. In comparison, the mini highlighter is slightly more expensive at $3.75 per gram.
Ingredients & Cruelty-Free Status
Ofra is 100% Cruelty-Free. Also, the Pillow Talk Highlighter is Vegan and Talc-Free. Discover more affordable, Cruelty-Free brands here.
Swatches are not a perfect indicator quality. However, swatches provide performance clues. The below swatch shows how the Pillow Talk Highlighter performs when applied with a finger and fan brush.

Application & Wear-Time
Friends, if you DON’T want to be tempted, stop reading now.
First, the Ofra Pillow Talk Highlighter is S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G. It provides an almost blinding glow without looking artificial or overly metallic.
Additionally, this highlighter looks different depending on how it is applied. For a soft, diffused look, apply Pillow Talk with a fluffy highlighter brush. To create a blinding sheen, pack the highlighter on your face with your fingers. Also, use a dense highlighter brush to create the most blinding glow.
In addition to wearing Pillow Talk like a traditional highlighter, I enjoy wearing this as an inner corner eyeshadow highlight.
Also, the lasting time surprised me. I retained my blinding glow for 12 hours without fading or smudging. As an oily-skinned girl, this is a feat. For this reason, Ofra’s Pillow Talk Highlighter is one of the most reached for highlighters in my collection.

Final Thoughts on the Ofra Cosmetics Pillow Talk Highlighter
Although I am cautious to recommend expensive products to my readers, I feel completely confident in recommending the Pillow Talk Highlighter to anyone looking to “Glow to the Gods.”
Pillow Talk is the most high-shine highlighter I owned. Moreover, this highlighter provides a beautiful glow without looking too metallic or emphasizing skin texture. I’m looking forward to trying more highlighters from this line – check out this review of the Ofra x Samantha March Collaboration.
P.S. I commend Ofra for selling (and promoting) their refillable highlighter pans. This is not only more economical, but it is more sustainable. Also, if you want to try Ofra Highlighters at a discounted price, wait until the brand holds a sale or apply an influencer discount code to receive 20% off your purchase.
