You get what you pay for. I've never been able to buy this type of lippie (3) for 21 dollars. That doesn't smear. Doesn't cause butt hole lips. Awesome formula so smooth and silky. It dries and stays all day. Plus it's a surprise you get three different ones each month for 21 including shipping. And if you don't like one of the colors. You can trade it or gift it. I wanted to start liveglam for the simple fact that I don't buy any colors other than the two I would always wear. But now liveglam has got me wearing from the darkest of colors to the priettiest of golds I would have never purchased at the store. And I look good, so that's a plus. Always get compliments on my lip color. I'm so thankful for liveglam to have taken me out my comfort zone and showed me how great other colors and shades are on me.
