My latest Bzz campaign with BzzAgent is the new Blast Flipstick from Covergirl. There are two shades of lipstick with every purchase. One side is a darker, creamier color. The other is a lighter, shimmery color. The idea is that you can use the darker, use the lighter, blend them together for a third color, or use the lighter to accent, highlight, or create the new ombre look. The ombre lips is not my thing. To be honest, I think they look a little strange. I received the product in Stunner, Vixen, and Minx. So far I have tried both the Stunner and Vixen and like both. The Minx is not a color that I would be able to pull off with my skintone so I am giving that one away (see giveaway below). The lipstick itself is not anything special. It is just lipstick. The fact that you are getting two shades in one stick that coordinate beautifully is what sells the product. Will this replace the products I usually use? No. I like the colors but I really am a lipgloss/liquid lip kind of girl. If the product had a little bit of sheen, it probably would be my one stop lip shop. However, because of the unlimited blending option, I will definitely add it into my lip rotation. I would really like to try the Cheeky or Perky.
This product actually reminds me of another Covergirl product that I have gotten from Bzzagent that I still use all the time. Smoky Shadowblast has two coordinating creamy eye shadows on the same stick. I had to go look it up on the website to see what it was called because the name has rubbed off of the one I have from frequent use. Silver Sky is the color I have and I would also try Onyx Smoke or Bronze Fire. I was shocked at the poor reviews. After many, many applications, my stick has not crumbled or broken, nor have I had any problems with it creasing. I tend to have a light hand with makeup so maybe the people that had problems with creasing were doing a more dramatic look.
But for me, when I travel, I like to bring versatile things that can create multiple looks while not filling multiple bags. Because of this, the Blast Flipstick, Smoky Shadowblast, and a simple mascara are all my makeup bag needs.
The third color I got called Minx is just not a color that my skin tone would be able to pull off. Therefore, I am going to give it away to a random reader (unopened of course) along with a couple of the $2 off coupons so that you can try other colors if you'd like. Does it look like a color you could pull off? Or do you know somebody who could rock it? You can earn up to 3 entries per person. You must be in the US to win. A winner will be picked via random.org. The giveaway ends on 12/12/12 at noon (eastern time). Please use a valid email address as this is how I will contact you if you win (it will not be publicly visible and I will not use it for any other reason).
