As I have said before I LOVE makeup! Especially my lipstick! BzzAgent recently asked me to join in on the Covergirl flipstick campaign. I was sooo excited! Remember I had posted once upon a time about wanting to try flipstick?

Now back to the main focus of this blog.
I was sent 3 flipsticks to try. AmAzInG!
Each flipstick has 2 colors. Let me tell you one stick gives you 3 options, you add 2 more to the pack and possibilities are endless! you can take a couple tubes and make your own colors. Here is how they are made. This one in the picture is:
855 minx & espiegle
I love the look of the tube, the skinny size. The name says it all. I apply the darker side and then flip it over and put the other side over top of that. Here is one of the things I really like about it. Compared to the kind I normally wear, it takes a lot less time to apply. I usually wear Maybelline superstay lipsticks. With those you don’t have a regular stick. You paint on the top coat, let it dry for 1 to 2 minutes and then apply the top coat. With this one it is a normal lipstick that you flip, then put other color straight on.
Here is another color I received while on. This one is a little lighter.
Please ignore the wrinkles! Next mission aging cream! LOL
In these pictures I am wearing #820 vixen & seductress
As you can see the lipstick goes on smooth. It doesn’t feel heavy like some I have tried before. Now another important question… Does it stay on? YES. With the color stay I normally use, the color stays perfect but I constantly reapply the top coat. Sometimes I have to buy extra gloss or top color for that shine. This color stayed on even after going out to dinner. If you are going to be gone all day I would say you would have to reapply every 3 to 4 hrs. But in the long run I feel that this is a step above my regular brand.
Plus you won’t end up with a couple topless lipsticks in your makeup case, like I had
