Good for the price.
I only have 4 of these which I bought on the same day. I bought them for only $0.93! That's a bargain. They are not the best, of course, but they are good. I found them to be very pigmented. They are not "ultra" moisturizing but they didn't try out my lips either. The smell is waxy. Ugh. The worst part is the packaging, though. I will agree with all the other reviews on that one. I hate that the lipstick doesn't go all the way inside the tube. That would make it so much better. I hate nicking my lipstick every time I go to remove or put the cap back on. Other than that, for less than a dollar, I can't complain. I would probably get some more. You can check out the swatches on my lips for the shades: Cafe, Sheer Red, Blossom, and Violet Shine on my blog.
Poor Packaging ...
I have aquired a few of these over the past couple of months because they are only $1 ! I like the colors , I wish they had more matte colors in the stores I shop at . Overall it is not bad for the money , however , the packaging is a big turn off . Every single one I have bought is broken or damaged :( As far as "Ultra Moist " , it doesn't live up to the name ,but it is nothing that a little balm under or gloss over can't fix . I will buy these again .
Packaging and smell is a problem
I always was a clutz, and it doesnt help with this packaging! It doesnt help support the hold of the lipstick itself, and the cover always nicks my lipstick when i ope and close the lid to use it. the smell reminds me of my grandma, enough said. they act as if its a stained lipcolor but it doesnt moisturize my lips at all, even with a lipbalm underneath it.
I have quite a few of these I have accumulated over the years and they are actually really nicely pigemented but a bit waxy. But I have retro red and I am always amazed at how well it stays on my lips! It ALMOST stains but is easy to wipe away when you need to. So all in all, not so bad. Especially for the price.
Needs better packaging
I have this product in Retro Red and it is a bit hard to apply on the lips HOWEVER I got around this with a lip brush. BUT the only damper on this product getting much love it the packaging because when you twist the product down there is still some lipstick sticking out and the cap goes around the lipstick, like in the image above. However if you're like me and randomly find your cap missing from you lipstick in your purse, get ready to find lipstick on EVERYTHING. I would prefer if the product can be twisted into the tube completely like other lipsticks. That is all.
I don't really like these. I've bought a few & they don't feel good going on the lips. They're hard, not creamy & end up giving you a very strange texture to the lips. Just... a huge miss.
The colors are very pigmented and I dont have to reapply alot. I like to wear a red ones for dance recitals. It's super cheap so I think it's a good deal!
I have a lot of these lip sticks because they are cheap and easy to get. I love that they are so cheap but i guess like everything the less it is the worse it is. I find that these are very drying to my lips and dont stay on very long. I dont recommend that any one get these if you are looking for something that will last for a while.
It's dry! But I put Burt's Bees lip balm under and it's not that bad at all. It stays for a legit amount of time. And the price is without a doubt unbeatable!
This is a great red. Very bright. It has great color pay off. I do use a liner with it and chapstick under it though. If you would like a little more shine then add some lipgloss over it. Overall for the price i think it is up to par.
