I got two of these lipsticks on sale for 2.99. Now I know why there were so cheap. The packing is cheaply made. You have to turn the bottom and the color is supposed to come out of the top onto a sponge tip. The sponge is hard and the color is too thick and goopy. You barely turn the bottom and a huge amount gushes out of the top. I hated the color, it was a dark brown. How is that nude? It looked like I rubbed chocolate on my lips. I'm a fair complected woman and this made me look dead. It's a terrible product.
