    This review is for the $1 USD essential lipsticks. It appears that elf is slowly discontinuing these lipsticks on the website. I own nostalgia, classy, seductive, flirtatious, sociable, fearless and posh. Posh and seductive are no longer available on the website, which is a shame because these were beautiful colors. Nostalgia and flirtatious are almost too light for my light to medium skin tone, and are specific to certain looks only. They will likely work better for you if you have lighter skin. Classy is also bordering on almost too light, but works well as an everyday pink color. Sociable is a pink that borders on red, and has shimmer in it, its the only one that has shimmer (sparkles) in it. However, the shimmer is sparsely distributed, and the majority of the lipstick is matte. Fearless is a classic red. (Seductive is a pink nude color, and posh is a darker red). For $1 these are great to experiment with different colors, however, they do not wear very long, are not very pigmented, and do not quite set. The lighter colors especially will settle into the lines on your lips. As these do not quite set, lipliner is a must. The formula also varies across the lipsticks, depending on whether you got an older lipstick or a newer one. I prefer the older formula, as it is more matte, but longevity is the same. The newer formula applies more easily, but is glossier. These will not last through a meal, but the packaging is NOT travel friendly at all, as the cap is not secure. On new lipstick, the top of the lipstick also does not twist all the way down into the container, so it is very easy for this to make a mess in your bag. I have tried setting this with powder, and still it does not last very long. The smell of these lipsticks is sweet, and is reminiscent of flintstones vitamins with a chalky sweet scent. These are very easy to remove. The reds are a little harder, but still relatively easy. For the price, I do recommend picking some up to try the colors, but don't expect very much from this lipstick.

    These lipsticks are perfect for beginners or people who aren't comfortable wearing crazy lipstick colours. They aren't drying and are only 1$.

    I bought the lipstick in gypsy while looking for an intense red. The color was not as intense as I had hoped, but is still a great color. This lipstick is very creamy and does not feel drying at all. I would buy this again.
