Broadway Colors: True Matte Lipstick $1.00 Matte lipstick!?

Who isn’t loving matte lipstick right now? I know I am. When I stumbled across The Broadway Colors True Matte Lipsticks at Dollar General for $1.00, I was pretty intrigued. This line of lipsticks features some crazy colors, which I think, is actually a good thing. Through out my childhood I was a cheer leader and really involved in theater. One thing I remember is how hard it was to find wild colored lip sticks. Weather it was for spirit day, or a costume I always wished I could get the colors I needed much easier than having to order a bit more expensive product online, that I would probably never use again.

Not only do they have some wild shades, But they obviously offer some everyday shades as well. ( NOTE: I did not pick up the pink shades that are offered, they were all sold out at my local Dollar General)

I would also like to make it known that a lot of these shades have corresponding nail polish colors to match, with the same name. The two I have with their corresponding nail polishes are Sparkling Stone and Where’s Nemo.

What I think over all?

If you just need a lipstick to wear for a school event or play or Halloween, etc.. I say yes for sure go for these! But, if you are wanting to get an everyday color to wear throughout your everyday life, these may not be the best. The reason I say this is because they are very drying. Which a lot of matte lipsticks are, but I found these very uncomfortable. They are also not long lasting, like, at all. I had to reapply them each time I wore them like 30 mins of application.

Have you tried this product? What do you think? Have any recommendations or requests? Let me know!

        I wear “Where’s Nemo” pretty often and I love it. The color actually stays on pretty well (about 2 hours) but they are drying and they leave a little bit of a stain when you take them off.

  1. I was just curious to see how well these worked and for only $3 it wasn’t much of a risky buy. I got the colors pink drop and lemon pie. I was so surprised how much I actually liked a $3 lipstick when all my other lipsticks start at $23 each! I have dry lips and I still like these. Before I put it on I apply just a small amount of the Smiths rosebud salve from ulta. Then later, of they start to feel dry, I’ll put just a tiny bit more of the salve on. It’s definitely worth the buy to see if it works for you!

    I love this brand!!! I own about 5 or 6 of them. They are $3 at my local DG but they stay on my lips perfectly and I just wore a light pink one and I didn’t reapply all day. I love the crazy colors they come in. Such a great find.

    I love these colors!! The blues tend to last all day, with minimal fading (though they are drying, and get flaky if you have dry lips already) I use a lip scrub nightly to avoid this, and a lip primer just like you would with other lipsticks, and the problem of them being too drying and fading COMPLETELY vanishes. These are my favorite lipsticks without a doubt, and I’m slowly but surely collecting every color they have!

    1. I couldn’t find anything on them! Which is a big reason I decided to pass all of mine along to my friend. But, sense I couldn’t find anything on the brand it came off as a NO to me. I may be wrong though!

    I had to reply. The colors in this collection are “bold”! However I bought 5 shades that I found to be very flattering on “woman of color”. The colors I loved are: Black, chalice, Juliet, lemonade, and electric shot. I did apply product on thick. I did experience some transfer, but it wasn’t bad at all!! Totally love these lipsticks!! Not to mention, I never applied chap stick or any type of moisturizer and they truly were not over drying!! Less expensive product, but great lipstick between $1-2. USD. At Dollar General!!!!!!

    What state were these purchased? Every DG I have gone since last year have them priced for $3. Also, I think they are made from a parent factory and then distributed in different packaging for RK by Kiss. I have both brands and they are really good. But still wondering where you got them for $1?

    I purchased Juliet today and all that I can say is Buh By Kylie Lips – Hello Broadway Matte! It is not drying and stays on for hours. Give it a try!
