COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick {Review}

Here’s the deal with me and lipstick … I have never found a lipstick I use alone. Meaning that EVERY time I put on lipstick I always apply some type of shimmer lipstick or lipgloss over it.

I could never understand why makeup companies didn’t make a stick that had matte and shimmer all in one stick.

As a mom of three, the last thing I want to have to carry in my diaper bag is TWO lipsticks. Listen, I barely have enough space between my diapers and my Cheez-its to fit anything that makes me pretty. Let alone two of them.

In walks COVERGIRLÆ Blast Flipstick Lipcolor.

FINALLY, someone gets it! Literally this has been the lipstick I have been in need of for a long, long time.

One end is matte lipcolor. One end is shimmer lipcolor.

Genius {in my humble opinion}.

I really like how the colors are just slightly different. One is a little darker than the other. I layered the more matte color underneath the shimmer color and … LOVE!

Another thing that I like about it? The price point. I can be so frugal when it comes to home decor and fashion so why not carry that attitude over into my makeup habits? Especially when I’m shopping lipstick.

For $7.99 I could buy two different colors of the Blast Flipstick and not feel guilty. Heck, I could buy four and still not be broke.

The color I went with is called Whisper. I tend to go with more pink tones when I buy lipcolor because I like how it looks with my skin tone.

I have tried the reds and the peachy-oranges and the deep deep browns, but I keep going back to my pinks. I personally like a more natural look when it comes to my lips and this color really made me happy.

It gave me just enough color to not look “blah” but not enough to look “WHOA”.

I will admit the hubby likes me in red lipcolor. I don’t see it. I personally think I look “over done”, but I may just bust out of my comfort zone and surprise him with some bright lips soon. We’ll see.

    I actually do not wear lipstick. I do wear lip-balm though, and always get clear. I like the natural look and don’t wear makeup at all other than the lip-balm. I do this because I can’t stand the way makeup makes my skin feel and the fact that I am constantly touching my face makes makeup a liability! LOL
