CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Minx, Stunner and Vixen Reviews & Swatches

I have something a little different than nail polish for this post. I have been a BzzAgent for a few years now (7 years actually, wow I can't believe it's been that long!) and recently I was asked to join the campaign for CoverGirl Blast Flipstick. I'm not a big lipstick wearer, but these looked like something different so I figured I would give it shot. ;)

Each Flipstick is dual ended with a darker and light shade allowing you to either combine the colors or create different effects such as an "ombre" effect. 
 CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Minx: Deep brown & gold.
 CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Stunner: Bright pink & gold.
 CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Vixen: Burgundy & pearl pink.

The good: 
  • A variety of color options, 13 different duos (26 different shades altogether)
  • Allows you to create different colors and effects
  • Can be found at mass retailers like Walmart, Target, CVS and Walgreens
  • Pigmented nicely for a drugstore product
  • Sharp angle of each end made it easy for me to apply
The bad:
  • Chalky formula
  • The colors I received are very frosty/shimmery and remind me of something worn in the 90's
  • Blending the colors works better with a lip brush than the stick itself. 
  • Colors fade quickly
  • Packaging feels very cheap 
Overall, I wouldn't buy any of theses personally. Out of the colors sent I only wore the dark end of Vixen out of the house because none of the other colors worked for my skin tone. When I do wear lipsticks, I tend to stick with matte or colors that have no shimmer and these really don't provide a finish like that. The price point is just ok for the quality, suggested retail is $8.49, though I'm sure you can find many stores like CVS or Walgreens running buy one, get one 50% off to make the price more reasonable. 

CoverGirl Blast Flipstick can be found in store at most mass retailers and online through Covergirl's website here. Find CoverGirl on Facebook here and Twitter here

These products were sent for review, all opinions are my own.

P.S. If anyone is interested in a $2 off coupon for 1 Flipstick (expires 4/30/13) I would be happy to mail some off. ;)
