I’m a habitual lipstick blender…meaning I have yet to find the ‘right’ shade in more than 10 years. I have to constantly use a lighter shimmery shade underneath and top with a slightly darker color. It’s a pain having to dig out two lip products when I need a touch-up. However, Covergirl has responded with their BlastFlipstick line of lip colors – a 2-in-1 stick providing one ‘creamy ‘ bolder shade and one shimmer shade. The dual ends make it easy to create perfect blends and enhance the versatility of your lip color. With more than one BlastFlipstick, you can also mix and match with the other shades.
I received three colors:
- Stunner – Bright pink and gold shades
- Vixen – Burgundy and pearl pink shades
- Minx – Deep brown and gold shades
I immediately tried Minx because I usually use a light wine-color and top with a slightly darker brown/burgundy. However, Minx was just too dark for me. I gravitated next to (and have fallen in love with) the Vixen Covergirl BlastFlipstick, and this is kind of different for me because I’m not what you would consider a ‘pinkish’ lipstick wearer.
However, the lip color attracted a variety of compliments and people noticed the new color. I’ve been wearing it ever since and will most definitely purchase it again. I love the burgundy shade and enjoy enhancing the look with the pearl pink shimmer. It is now my go-to shade, and it feels good on the lips too.
There are 13 different complementary Covergirl shade duos to consider the next time you shop at your favorite grocery store, pharmacy, or major retailer. Choose Whisper for a taupe and pearl pink combination. Pucker is comprised of light berry and lilac shades. Flashy offers your choice between dark berry and lilac shades. The BlastFlipsticks cost around $8.49.
