Penny for my thoughts review: Covergirl blastFlipstick

by hedy on November 29, 2012

As you know, I’m a Bzzagent.  Through BzzAgent, I recently had a chance to try the COVERGIRL BlastFlipstick  for free.  As those of you who’ve read my previous Covergirl via BzzAgent reviews know, I love drugstore makeup but am not a fan of Covergirl’s animal testing or many of their products .  However, my curosity got the best of me, and I joined the campaign.

I received three of the double-ended colors: Vixen (Burgundy and pearl pink shades), Perky (Bright pink and light pink shades), and Minx (Deep brown and gold shades). I usually use either a pink, nude, or deep pink lip, so these shades were not my cup of tea. I tried Vixen first (we were going out and I’d planned on doing a dramatic lip). One thing that immediately stood out to me was that the dark side was shimmery (not creamy), as a result, the highlight was not as obvious. Also it was really drying, wore poorly, and bled like crazy. I felt the same about the bright pink shade.  Brown lipstick is not for me (no matter how many times I tried it in the 1990′s), but I gave it to my mother to try.

My current drugstore lip love is REVLON Colorburst Lip Butter-sightly more than the Covergirl (and only one), but much better quality.  If you want to highligh your lips, either put a pop of highlighter or shimmery eyeshadow under or over (more dramatic) your lipstick on your lower lip’s center.

If you do want to try them, they are BOGO at CVS through December 1.
