    It appears that elf is slowly discontinuing these lipsticks on the website. These are $1USD 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 come in so many great colours and are so affordable if you get a great deal on shipping. The packaging is simple which keeps the cost down and it is cruelty free makeup so thats a plus. It is not long lasting but great to just toss in your purse for a touch up later. I would for sure buy more colours just so i can keep some on hand in my purse. The formula is also smooth and not sticky like other kinds. Great for the price.

    I have a few of these lipsticks and they are very affordable. I've been trying to find a shade close to my discontinued brand. I like matte finish and some are frosted which I don't care for.

    For the price, this is a great lipstick. It works. Not the greatest, but it's quite good - good pigmentation and staying power.

    I love these because even when they fade away, they stain the lips so you are left with quite a bit of color if you did not reapply. But be careful with colors as some are better than the others, packaging may come flawed in some, so get a replacement before assuming that all are the same terrible packaging. All of them stain the lips, all of them has no glitter except Sociable.
