Maybe it's just the particular shade pairing I selected, but I'm not too thrilled with CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lip Color in Cheeky ($7.99).

This dual-ended lipstick includes two different lip colors with great color payoff that can be mixed and matched for different looks. It's a good idea in theory, but I'm still not in love with this product.

Granted, the pigmentation and staying power are amazing. I applied CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lip Color in Cheeky in the afternoon, washed my face in the evening, and my lips still had a just-bitten stain the next morning.

CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lip Color in Cheeky includes a medium peach pink shimmer and a bright reddish pink matte. The peach has some frost to it that I dislike, and I find that it accentuates lip lines somewhat. The reddish-pink shade is more appealing to me, but I think it looks a little tacky on me!

In this photo, I applied the peach pink shade all over and added some of reddish pink shade in the center of my lips. The resulting look is not that exciting. I devised a more attractive look by applying the bright reddish pink all over and accenting with the peach, but no pictures of that yet.

One final point: CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lip Color in Cheeky has a fairly strong scent that I can't quite place. Sorta like fruity Play-Doh? It's not terrible, but I'm not exactly in love with the scent.

Bottom Line: While CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lip Color in Cheeky has some good points, this product is just not for me. The shades, finishes, and scent leave me cold. I could try one of the other 12 shade pairings, but I have lost some enthusiasm for this product and I'm in no rush to do so.

What about you? Have you found a CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lip Color that suits you?

  1. I kind of like the shades, but it really emphasizes your lip lines, bummer!
