Review for: 7702 Classy, Fearless, Sociable, Sociable more...
These lipsticks vary by color. I bought 3 and all of them are very different. Also, all of the colors are slightly different than the pictures on the website. Classy is patchy no matter how many layers or how it’s applied and is not completely opaque, however I like to use it like a tinted lip balm. Sociable has glitter in it and you can see and feel it on your lips but it is more opaque and not as patchy. Fearless is my favorite. It is really opaque and super easy to apply and is a lovely blue toned red. I’d recommend them because of the price but don’t expect anything amazing and the packaging is really cheap feeling.

Review for: 7702 Classy more...
This is a really great lipstick! The color is great. The pigmentation is great. The formula is great. It is very affordable. Only $1 !!! It lasted a good amount of time, but being a smoother lipstick it won't hold up to food. So it did wear away after eating mostly. But I do have to say it was a nice wear away. It wasn't like wow you are missing half your lipstick. It was gradual. It would highly recommend this lipstick in all shades to everyone. The packaging is a little cheap, but isn't bad at all and it's only a dollar so you can't expect $50 quality packaging. Go buy a shade (or all of them) and try this great lipstick for yourself! :)

Review for: 7706 Posh more...
I am a lipstick junkie! & I love dark and red tone colors more than anything. I saw the different varieties and decided on the color Posh. I couldn't believe how conveniently priced it was, and I bought it within those next few minutes. I love how creamy and moisturizing the lipstick is on your lips. The pigmentation is true to color and it doesn't bleed like other lipsticks. It does have a scent to it, but it's nothing over powerful or horrid. I've recommended this product to all of my friends and I'm so glad that e.l.f products are this amazing! It's one of my favorite lipsticks ever.

This wasn't at all a terrible product, but it certainly didn't work for me. I tried utilizing many different colors of this lipstick in many different ways, but no matter what I did, it did not stay on very well. The texture also seemed a bit oily and didn't blend as well as more expensive or quality brands.

Review for: 7706 Posh more...
Let me just say that I love E.L.F products! My very first E.L.F Lipstick was Posh and I loved it! It was easy to apply and went on smoothly. It lasted most of the day and I only had to reapply once but that was okay since it wasn't a matte lipstick. It didn't have a harsh odor or smell and that was amazing!

E.l.f has really out done themselves when it comes to their lip line. I have quite a few lip products from them and I love every one! The lipsticks are soft and creamy and apply very easily. I colors are beautiful and last for a long time! Definitely I good addition to any lipstick lovers collection :)

This product is so impressive for its price especially. The pigment in the shades I’ve tried are decently pigmented especially their reds. It’s not especially long wearing but it’s not hard to reapply. Altogether, this is such a nice cheap option for lipstick.

Review for: 7706 Posh more...
For such a low price point, I was greatly surprised by this lipstick. The color is beautiful, it is smooth and easy to apply, and it also works as a gorgeous lip stain if you dab it right after applying. I will keep a stock!

Review for: Fearless, Sociable, Sociable, 7706 Posh more...
These lipsticks are really nice for the $1 price but they are not the greatest. They tend to bleed when not used with a lip liner (elf also sells one of those for $1 TOO) but the lipstick itself is creamy and pretty pigmented.

Review for: 7706 Posh more...
These give great color payoff. But the quality is pretty poor. I know elf can do better than this. These were kind of a miss. At first it was pretty okay but as the months have gone on it’s gotten a little crayon feeling.

What do you guys think of these lipsticks? I don't know how I feel about them yet. I like the pigmentation and the price but I'm not sure about the consistency.
