Essential Lipstick is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 1124.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but deceptive colours - see my pics I purchased Classy, Seductive, and Fearless. Classy & Seductive are much lighter when applied & different than what appears on the site. This is based upon my complexion - light with golden undertones and brown/black hair. When using Amazing Cosmetics, my exact match is Light Golden. Attached are some pics of how the shades looked on me with one application, no blotting. Please note, I'm not wearing concealer/foundation so this is my natural skin tone. They are in order left to right: 1) Classy 2) Seductive 3) Fearless (bottom)I do like the colours, but Classy looks more violet and Seductive looks peachy (at least on me) Fearless is the only colour that looks exactly as pictured online and in the tube.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Good As soon as this came in the mail i got exited and opened it. I tried to swatch it and it fell out and got bent! I had to squish it back in and reshape it so i could use it. I am very disappointed in this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Lipstick 7706 Posh broke as soon as I first opened it. It was all soft and melting. Posh has a good pigmentation though. Lipstick 7702 Classy had a white frost kind of surface covering when first opened. All other colors I bought were chalky.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour, Too Fragile I bought this with a bunch of other e.l.f. products and was very excited to have a nice smooth lipstick in a very flattering colour ( I picked up Seductive) It was in great condition when I received it, which is always something I worry about when ordering online and shipping. However, with only a few uses I knew it wasn't going to last in its tube. The lipstick popped out once and I was able to save it and put it back in the tube, but I ended up transferring it out into a little glass jar so that it wouldn't end up on the floor! I still need to try to melt it down so I can continue using it, however if you aren't up for that little DIY I would suggest finding a different lipstick. The formula is nice and the colour is beautiful. It goes on very smooth however doesn't last long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It fell out the instance I opened the tube of lipstick the whole thing literally fell out. It's slippery and wet. Not a happy elfer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good formula This is my first purchase of this lipstick and I like the formula. I purchased Seductive. I will wear it but it was much brighter and a bit lighter than the color block/swatch suggested - it looks on me more like the color of Flirtatious. So if I try this product again, I might go for Posh to tone down the brightness. Otherwise, the lipstick seems very good. I just received it so haven't worn it a lot yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very pretty color but not on me I wanted to get a nice nude color, so I bought this and it wasn't what I expected. I put it on and I look like a ghost, I'm somewhat a dark skin color. Very dissapointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Budget Lipstick I purchased this lipstick in the color Posh and was pleased. It is very pigmented, moisturizing and applies smoothly. The color is much lighter than what is pictured so that is something to keep in mind but for the price these lipsticks are definitely worth trying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lipstick I bought Nostalgic a while back, the color wasn't much lighter than I thought but other than that it's a great lipstick. It's glossy and hydrating and smells amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great deal but colors may be deceiving I bought the Classy color because it looked more like a mauve on the website. When it arrived, the color in the tube matched what was on the site, except when I put it on it was shocking hot pink. Yikes! It's a great creamy lipstick but not the color I was expecting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad :( i love one dollar deals but this is not my favorit. Smells like plastic and broke with the first use, it's definitely not my favorite product... but i love e.l.f products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! The color "Nostalgic" is my favorite nude lipstick. So many times nudes look weird and chalky on me, but this one is a perfect match for my skin tone. The quality of the lipstick is good too. Very creamy and feels good on the lips. I keep one in my purse, for quick and easy touch ups. And for the price, wow, what a good deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I bought this in the color Posh for a stage production, and have ended up using it for everything! It's my first real lip color, so I'm probably not a great judge, but I love it. It's a perfect dark red. I'm blonde and blue, but I get really tan, so I have a really hard time finding lip colors to match, but this one is beautiful. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful product Love the consistency of this lipstick, color glides on smooth and evenly and stays put surprisingly well without any kind of liner. Will definitely be buying this in other shades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it! My grandma got this lipstick in Posh for me, since it was $1...I LOVE it. So moisturizing, nice light berry scent, and the pigmentation is good. Better than lipsticks 10 or 20x the price! I will definitely be purchasing more E.L.F. cosmetics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FOR $1, THIS PRODUCT IS GREAT. Greasier than high-end products. Pigment has good pay-off. Definitely recommend wearing with a lip liner to avoid bleeding and smearing. Liked this product enough to repurchase—shades Seductive & Flirtatious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from colour is gorgeous I loved this lipstick. I bought it in the colour Nostalgic and could not be more impressed! This is NOT a matte lipstick, so it will have shine to it. I have a deep olive skin tone and this colour showed up as a gorgeous nude pink, which can be worn day or not. It was very pigmented and I did not have to build it up at all for the colour. It stayed on for hours and worked to hydrate my lips as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good It's $1 right? I love deals for a dollar and so I thought I'd give this thing a try. I got the color Posh and I though it was going to be a purple toned kind of color but no, it was cranberry red. This lipstick is pretty good and build able. I was kinda nervous that it would come all broken a weird like some of the reviews said. The tube is definitely cheap, you can just feel it as you turn the tube. Overall I like it and wouldn't mind trying the other colors. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Colors I literally just got my package about 20 minutes ago and am obsessed with these colors. I was unsure as to what to expect seeing how the price is really low on these but since they were highly recommended I decided to give it a try. I am so happy I did. Current favorite shade is Seductive. Only thing that irritated me was the fact that it came half melted in the tube. Don't order these when it's warm out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! I bought "classy" and "nostalgia" about a month ago and they're awesome. The only thing keeping this from being a 5 star product is the fact that the lid comes off so easily, or at least mine do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for when you pay a dollar The color is not what it looks like on the website so I'll start off with that. You also have to be very careful to not order it when it's hot out because I got mine completely melted and since it was on its side it was stuck on the side of the tube and wouldn't rotate up or down.The packaging is super cheap and breaks easily and the product itself is super soft even when it solidified completely. Super glossy finish. Pigmentation and application was meh

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the beset I bought this about a year ago. I do not recommend this product at all. I got the color Flirtatious. it is very smooth but appears very chalky on the lips. it sinks into the creases in the lips and overall is a very unattractive color and formula.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but soft This lipstick is one of my ALL TIME FAVE COLORS, but the main con that i have about these lipsticks is that beause they are so cheap they do lack some quality. they are so soft and creamy that al,ost every lipstick of this kind that i order tends to break.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheap wax it is way lighter than it shows in the picture, far way worst....no pigmentation at all....it feels like a cheap wax, its a waste of money....the cap doesn't even have a proper grip, falls off by itself. It is not as tempting as it looks, BEWARE!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the shade 'fearless' On me (very pale skin) 'fearless' is a lovely true red and suits my colouring better than a deeper shade. I find it takes a few coats for the colour to really come out, and it smudges quite easily, however for the price it's still a great product and one of my favourite shades
