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

THIS IS $1! I’ve never seen such a moisturizing lipstick! It has very nice pigmentation and honestly if you’re lips are dried out, but you still want to wear lipstick, BUY THIS! I’m still in shock at how moisturizing this lipstick is.

This is a great product and it is so comfortable to wear. I just am not a big fan of the shade I got in classy. For me this shade is just too bubblegum pink for me. I think the formula is amazing and I would love try another shade.

The formula was not great but the colors are AMAZING i love them so much. The red is flattering on every skin tone. It's a little cheaply packaged but it's not that big of a deal. Probably won't buy again but great for newbies!

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!

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.

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.

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.
