Lipsticks are a woman’s best friend (except diamonds). I have a large variety of lipstick colors in different brands, high-end and drugstore as well. As a professional, I am looking for my clients the best formula without looking at the price, because the price cannot define the quality. I have purchased expensive products that they don’t worth even half of their price, and I have bought drugstore products that are worth x10 of their price. However, I have received some requests of reviewing affordable eBay matte waterproof lipsticks. Their price was blown my mind! I don’t purchase cosmetics from eBay, but those were a must to try and test them.
1$ eBay Matte Waterproof Lipsticks – REVIEW
They do not have a package, but I think their tube is quite nice, considering the price of the product. The printing on the tube is coming off easily, but that’s ok.
They are completely matte when they set. When I test them I was extremely surprised that they are indeed waterproof, enough pigmented (some of them), and that they set so quickly. However, some colors need a little more time to dry.
Nevertheless, they are quite difficult to come off, but when they do, they are coming off as flakes (they are very dry), and this is gross. The dark shades and a few of the lighters are enough good with one layer. I preferred to apply some of the lighter shades, a thin layer at the bottom, wait for a minute, and then apply one more layer (rarely two).
Generally speaking, I think these are ok for their cost. At a higher point, the major issue for me is when they are coming off as flakes.
As a Makeup Artist for me is a no because I prefer to have quality and not quantity. There are so many good lipsticks out there…
