|Covergirl Blast FlipStick Lip Duo in "Glimmer"|
A few weeks ago I decided to do a little shopping at a Walmart that I never usually go to, and I swear that particular location had ALL the new products! (lol).......... Anyway, I had previously read about the New Covergirl Blast FlipStick Lip Duos so I decided to try one out.
The concept of these Lip Duos sound really cool. One side is a Matte/Cream lip color, and the opposite end is a complimentary Shimmer lip color that can be worn together or separately. There are 13 different FlipSticks that range in a variety of colors like pinks, corals, reds, and browns.
I picked up the "Glimmer" Flipstick which has a Burgundy/Berry Matte/Cream color on one end, and a Pinkish "Shimmer" color on the opposite end.

The good thing about this product is that you basically get 2 REALLY pigmented lip colors for the price of one, but besides that...............................
there's nothing else I really liked about it. I thought that the colors, although pigmented, felt really Heavy and Drying on my lips. The Matte shade looked dull and boring, and the other shade was more of a Frost than a "Shimmer." I also tried blending the two shades together, but I didn't like the way that looked either.

Overall, I think the concept SOUNDS really good, but it didn't quite work out for me. I like lipsticks that feel Light and Moisturizing, and these are the complete opposite. They remind me of those "old school" lipsticks that felt really thick and
Have you tried them? What do you think?
