THE SKINNY: Sometimes, you get what you pay for. Especially when you play around with the $1 makeup options.
The Essential lipstick is one of the few products in the $1 e.l.f. line that is disappointing. The color (a really pretty coral) lasted about five minutes on my lips. Sad but true.
KEEP OR TOSS: Toss.
CHECK IT OUT: e.l.f. has other "more expensive" options, including a $3 matte lipstick and a $5 mineral lipstick.
