I bought this lipstick about a year or two ago, I can’t really remember, and featured it on my primary blog, StyleByCat.blogspot.com. However, I didn’t really go in-depth with it and I haven’t worn it again since I swatched it that day. So, I figured I’d give it another chance a couple days ago.
I remember being tempted to buy this after seeing a CoverGirl ad of Sofia Vergara rocking the heck out of Stunner. I think that image is burned into my brain to this day. Anyhoo, Stunner is a vibrant, red-orange on one end and a shimmery gold on the other.
I had done a warm, smokey eye and was perusing my lippies to see what to pair with it when I glanced upon my Flipstick, which had been collecting dust since I’d first swatched it. Now, I’m not prone to wearing orange-y lipsticks, but I think I have the skin tone for it and I figured it would go nicely with the rest of my makeup.
I didn’t realize how much I liked the color on me until I wore it again. I find that it really compliments my warm undertones. The vermillion color, by itself, is matte. Once you apply the gold, you get a nice shimmer which adds extra depth and dimension to the color. Also, it’s a long-wearing lipstick that lasts even through eating and drinking fairly well. The downside is that the formula is really dry and has a bit of a grainy texture to it. I would recommend smoothing gloss or balm over it. It is fragranced with a vanilla-y scent.
Overall, I like this CoverGirl Blast Flipstick well enough, however, I don’t think I’ll be investing in any other additional colors, as the dryness and texture are a little off-putting. I’m still glad I purchased this one, though. I don’t have any regrets.
I know, this post is a bit *yawn* compared to yesterday’s very exciting look, but I figured it’d be a nice break from all the consecutive EOTD’s I’ve been putting up. 😉
