I had the chance to try three shades of CoverGirl’s BlastFlipStick lip colors! I am a BzzAgent and got to try them for free. The shades they sent me were: Minx, Vixen, and Stunner.
These lipsticks are really two colors in one which makes them so intriguing! On one side is a subtle shimmery side and the other has a more “pow” of color. So you can go sheer or bright or combine them for a completely different look.
I’m not really a lipstick girl; I find it looks too cartoonish on me or just comes off very quickly. I also found this a bit drying to so wanted to put lip balm on top.
Of the colors I received I really like Vixen. You can see I made a bit of a mess with Minx and I didn’t even try Stunner’s darker color. I find Minx the hardest to wear for my skin color but the darker color is nice. These are pretty easy to apply and there is quite a bit of product.
Minx is a gold and rust colored lipstick. It looks more gold in the photo but I think it has more copper and red tones in it. The shimmer side doesn’t look all that good on me but the darker colors looks nice. It’s a dark rust color with some shimmer. I probably won’t wear this color very often.
Unfortunatly, I only have tried the shimmer side of Stunner. I never got around to tearing open the other end when I could just wear the other two lipsticks! This color seems to be a coral/tangerine lipcolor. I’m not sure that tone works for my skin but the shimmer side is very subtle. It’s a pinky brown color. The dark side seems to be a bright color with some shimmer. Combined they look more muted.
Of the three, Vixen has been my favorite because it is so wearable. I let my aunt and a friend try this shade and they both really liked it. I find the shimmery side to be a perfect pick-me-up for your lips. It adds a perfect hint of color with some shimmer. Combined the two colors really shine. I don’t know if I would wear the dark color alone since I like them both a lot.
Overall, I think these are an excellent choice for lip colors. Especially if you want to change up your look on the go and want a lot of variety in your lipsticks. I would be interested in trying other shades as well. I do think they are somewhat drying and they smell like lipsticks, which I don’t like. They also don’t last super long.
Have you tried the BlastFlipStick? What’s your favorite shade?
