As a Bzzagent, I had the opportunity to review CoverGirl BlastFlipSticks. Below is my review along with a photo of the kit I received.
As part of this campaign, I received 3 Flipsticks. The Mink, which is a
darker brown shade with a coppery shimmer. Stunner, which is a coral
shade and a bronze shimmer. And finally, Vixen, which is a dark pink
with a lighter pink shimmer. The bzzkit was generous - however, I
wouldn't have picked any of the shades I received. Mink looked crazy on
me - if I wiped some of the stick off, it may work. I didn't like how
Stunner looked on me either, however, the colors reminded me of summer.
Of all the sticks, I liked Vixen the best.
I like the packaging of the Blastflipsticks. Their metallic looking in
the middle, with two clear caps. I like that it makes it easy to see
the colors. They were easy to open, and the caps 'snap' so that they
won't come off in your purse. Also, the lids are designed so that if
you turn the base of the lipstick, the sticks won't rise while the cap
is on. This is a big plus as I've had many tips ruined by caps.
The stick is easy to hold while applying. I like the feel of the
lipstick. The non-shimmered end is very smooth and creamy. The
shimmery ends aren't as smooth going on. It seems that the shimmer in
each stick is different. For the stunner, it's almost glittery, but the
others have a much more subtle shimmer. I also like that it is
pigmented. Some of the colors didn't look quite right on me, but I
could wipe some off my lips, and there would still be some sufficient
stain. With the shimmered ends, if you wipe it off, it seems that the
shimmery part comes off (if that makes any sense). The taste isn't bad
either. I wore the lipstick all day, and didn't experience any
feathering at all - this is another big plus for me. It's also long
lasting if you're not eating/drinking. You definitely need to reapply
after eating though.
All in all I liked the Blastflipstick. I'll have to see what other
shades they offer before I decide if I'd buy this - unfortunately, the
price is kind of high, so that will influence my decision as well.
