Review: CoverGirl blastflipstick (new at the drugstore!)
29 Nov 2012
Did you know that…
…my absolute favorite products to review for you guys are lipsticks? 🙂 I LOVE applying lipstick, trying out new shades and customizing colors to match my skin tone! Today I’m reviewing CoverGirl’s newest lipsticks: the blastflipsticks, 2 lipsticks in 1, designed with creams and shimmers for a one of a kind look. Sounds neat, right?
CoverGirl blastflipstick ($8.49) CoverGirl blastflipstick is 2 lipsticks in 1 for hundreds of possible lip looks. It boasts dual ends, with creamy, bold color on one side and a shimmery shade on the other, for real shade interaction that brings new tonalities to life in one perfect blend and makes mixing and matching shades to create your unique lip look simple. All it takes is the flip of a stick.
From the 13 available colors, I have three that I received for review purposes from Bzzagent.
From top to bottom:
820 Vixen Burgundy and pearl pink shades
840 Stunner Bright pink and gold shades
855 Minx Deep brown and gold shades
I love playing around with these! The colors are very blendable and easy to use. It’s fun to mix shades like a real makeup artist. 😀 I’ve used the creamy colors on their own, I’ve layered both colors from each duo and I’ve also used the shimmery shades to highlight the center of my lower lip. Very pretty!
The blastflipsticks are very pigmented and lasts pretty long on me. The darker colors actually stain my lip a bit: I have to use a makeup wipe to remove them. I don’t mind this at all, I rather have something stain my lips than have to reapply every hour…
It’s nice to own multiple colors: I can mix and match to create my own personal and unique blend! My favorite color to wear on its own is Vixen’s burgundy side, it’s such a pretty color for winter. I’m thinking about picking up Intense (a deep berry and a shimmery taupe) and Flashy, a dark berry and lilac.
Below are swatches (pictures taken out- and inside) I made:
