PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "The packaging is the worst, but the product is AMAZING. It's a dollar so that explains the cheap plastic, but the product is so creamy and pigmented. It lasted a very long time for me...even while drinking and eating. Love these!" in 57 reviews
  • "Surprisingly these lipsticks are outstanding! For it being a dollar I didn't think that it would be as pigmented as it turned out to be. I own about five of these lipsticks and I must say the colors are beautiful. Although they aren't extremely long lasting I find that they stain your lips without making them look chapped or settling into fine lines. Unfortunately, the only downside is the packaging. It's very cheap and a little bit annoying to turn up, but I mean what could you expect for a dollar right? There is a great range of colors and are all so beautiful and creamy and when applied very hydrating to the lips. I love this lipstick so much and it's beyond amazing for just one dollar!" in 32 reviews

These were among the first ever lipsticks I used. They are really nice pigment wise but I don’t think they’re the absolute best thing out there, then again the price is low enough that you don’t expect anything high quality.

I guess it’s a good product, it’s so moisturizing but so fragile and the lid wouldn’t stay , but I think because I got it at shopmissa a website where everything is a dollar. I would buy it again because it’s so moisturizing!

I ordered this product online. The color looks different than it does in person. It completely washed me out and looked horrible against my already pale skin. The tube was pretty. It rose easily. The lipstick itself was very creamy and went on smoothly and evenly.

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!

I think this is great for the price, but I wouldn’t wear this as a go-to. I don’t find it hydrating and I don’t think it wears well. You have to use it sparingly and not layer it. When worn with care, pigment looks good.

So i just bought one of these in the "Flirtacious" shade, and honestly i love it. Such a pretty coral pink. It goes on smoothly, and doesn't make my lips feel dry. When you apply, its good to smudge with your finger, so your lips can absorb all of the color pigments. The only downfall of this is the packaging. This lipstick was only 1$ i understand, but at least make the twisty part decent. You have to twist it a certain way, otherwise your lipstick wont go back into its spot. For 1$ you cant really complain though. The product deserves 5 stars, even if the packaging isn't reliable. The quality of this lipstick is worth it. I love it, and cant wait to buy many more shades. Every time i go to walmart i buy something by E.L.F, just so i can make my makeup collection even bigger, AND so i can give reviews lol.

I hate this lipstick. While the formula felt creamy and the pigment was there upon swatching, it took several coats for the pigment to show up. I couldn’t even blot it because then all the pigment would disappear. Would not recommend, save your money!

This lipstick is very smooth and creamy and has great pigmentation. It's the perfect nude shade for fair/light skin. It isn't longlasting but I don't mind that because I don't always need or want my lipstick to last.

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.
