I love any makeup product that lets me play around and customize my look so COVERGIRL flipstick was something I wanted to check out before the BzzCampaign came around.
Vixen, Stunner, and Minx were great colors to send out since each falls into a different shade family (pink, red, and brown, respectively). I was really iffy on whether any of them would work with my fair skintone, especially Stunner. Once I saw that Stunner looked great on both Sofia Vergara and Taylor Swift's complexions I went bold and found that it was a great shade that could be toned down with the gold-ish side. Minx didn't work as well but wasn't as bad as I had anticipated, I would definitely not wear it for anything other than a very bold-makeup appropriate situation but it might look great on someone with darker skintones. Ultimately, Vixen was the most flattering of the trio for my fair skin.

Overall, COVERGIRL flipstick has turned out to be something I personally wouldn't buy. It's just not for me. Shimmer overload, dryness, and a lack of creme-shade options make it a product that doesn't meet my needs as a makeup lover. If you have medium skin, like shimmer, and dryness isn't an issue I would definitely recommend giving it a try though. It's a fun product with pretty colors to play with and lots of potential for creative liplooks. If COVERGIRL adds in some creme based shades on one side of the flipsticks I will definitely reconsider adding them to my makeup stash.
Notes: I received this product for free through BzzAgent in exchange for creating Bzz about it through social media, review, and real life conversational outlets.
