These are full size lipsticks, for the price I expected them to be small sample size. They are a very cost effective way of trying different color lipsticks to see which one is best. Some of the shades look very different on than I would have expected, so now I shall have more idea what to buy when I choose more expensive lipsticks. The quality is what you would expect for the money, a couple of layer are needed for a good cover. With a layer of gloss over the top they stay on for quite a while. I have given it five stars because it is good value for money, however this item should not be compared to more expensive brands. Some make up that I buy ends up straight in the bin, these I will be able use.
