I'm a little surprised at the low rating on these lippies because I have 3 and I love them all. I love that once you apply this lipstick, you can't feel them on your lips. I have a big issue with the texture of lipsticks, which is why I only wear them once in a blue moon. These are not sticky, have no discernible taste, and stay on for such a long time. They are super pigmented, and extremely matte. Yes they are kind of drying, but it doesn't bother me. I own 3 shades and all look great on. They can be sheered out easily, and still look just as beautiful. I found these at the dollar store, and will be on the lookout for more.
I acutally don't think this product is all that bad. It is a long wearing matte product, so you need to use a lipliner and apply very carefully, because it will be there for the rest of the day! Stayed on through coffee, candy and pizza with soda. I really like the deep reds, such as garnet. I would buy again, at Dollar Tree its a small investment for a very good lippie.
I used to wear this all the time back in high school & my early 20s (im only 33 so not too long ago). I really love it despite the bad reviews it seems to have gotten. It feels the way it does on your lips because its a stay put lipstick, its not going to be moisturizing or it would slide off. Ive tried many shades but esp like the dark reds in this line. continued >>
This product is very drying and you need a balm or gloss but I love the color. I have it in maroon......
I have to go against the grain and say this product is not that bad. Now be aware that I am not a lipstick lover mainly b/c most lipsticks are kind of thick compared to glosses but this is not. I do agree that it is a little dry but its smoothness makes up for it. I got it in "blush"; a pretty matte pink. I put this on then layer Nyx Round Lipgloss in Sparkle over it...so pretty! My boyfriend loves it! He calls me his black barbie whenever I wear it! Im going to get more colors from dollar tree!
Smells like old candle wax and applies very dry. I accidentally purchased this color at Dollar Tree and will return. This color is suited for a much deeper toned complexion than my PPP. Aside from the color this formula does seem drying and would probably be best worn over a primer or lipbalm. Also, this color is very shimmery but totally matte. Not a flattering look, IMO.
I purchased 2 of these: copper and bronze pretty colors but extremely drying. Won't purchase again!
I have this in copper. Its a red penny color. It looks OK on me, something different. But the dryness is hard to overlook. I have to add a gloss to this.
I agree with the reviewer below...this gets pretty dehydrating!! I got this in 'mocha', a light brown-bronzy color....it smells like crayons....it does last quite awhile though bcoz its very matte.....but unfortunately, i would never repurchase this...i cant stand the smell and it brings out the dryness of my lips....its too bad bcoz the lasting power is quite good.....hardly budges after eating and drinking
