I have purchased 4 lippies from this company. The bullet is smaller in size than standard lipsticks, but I never go through an entire bullet if lipstick before it goes bad. The packaging is cardboard. Not elegant, but it is not plastic, which I really don’t like. The product itself goes on smoothly. I line my lips first, apply product than top with a moisturizer or gloss. Wear time? It will need to be reapplied throughout the day. It is definitely not the best lipstick I have ever used, but it certainly is not the worst either. I use these as my “pocket” lipsticks. I have them tucked in my coat, car and other places for quick hits of color when I am out and about, like chapstick but with color and money is supposedly going to good causes.I purchased them specifically for the donation aspect. Recommend as a touch up on the go lipstick but not as your go to work or out to dinner lipstick.
