This clever lip duo is a genuine bargain because you really get three shades of lipstick in one dual-sided product. How? Each of the 13 duos contains a cream shade and a shimmer shade coordinated to be applied separately or together—the results are impressive and quite fun! Also impressive is how pigmented this lipstick is, delivering vibrant color that lasts for hours with minimal bleeding. The texture is smooth, light, and somewhat dry, so if you like moisturizing lipsticks, you may want to prep with a balm or finish with a gloss.

One note about packaging: The small plastic caps on either end of this twist-up tube are prone to coming off if jostled, which puts your makeup bag, purse, or pocket at double the risk for a lipstick disaster.

Pros:
  • Amazing value—three shades in one!
  • Rich pigmentation delivers vibrant color that lasts.
  • Both cream and shimmer finishes included in each duo.
  • Minimal bleeding into lines.
  • Feels lightweight on lips.
Cons:
  • Lid can come off, so be careful.

2 lipsticks in 1 BlastFlipstick! Flip your look from day to night, soft to bright, with BlastFlipstick's double-ended lipstick duos. With a creamy shade on one side and a shimmer shade on the other, it's two wearable, blendable, lipcolors in one!

Since 1961, CoverGirl has been slowly building a portfolio of cosmetics that today is about as all-encompassing as a makeup line can be. Originating from the same "medicated" ingredients found in Noxzema Skin Cream (which was never medicated in the least, but seriously irritating for skin), the debut products are still available, albeit with slight modifications. The good news is that for the past several years CoverGirl has consistently updated their line with some very impressive products, especially their foundations, concealers, and vastly improved pressed powders. They also offer some excellent eye and lip pencils, lipsticks and lip gloss, and one of the all-time best long-wearing lip paints, Outlast.

What's puzzling is that although many of CoverGirl's latest products are progressive, they tend to hang on to the lackluster-to-poor options, including abysmal powder blush and eyeshadows and their long-standing, very irritating Clean Makeup. These items may be part of CoverGirl's humble beginnings, but you certainly don't see parent company Proctor & Gamble adding eucalyptus oil and menthol to their Olay products or to products of any of the other cosmetics companies they own. If those ingredients were so important, why not use them everywhere? Needless to say, the great products outnumber the disappointments, and the prices make it easy for those on a budget to be beautiful and enjoy some state-of-the-art products, provided they shop wisely.

CoverGirl's Web site is extremely easy to navigate, and presents a wealth of product information, along with practical (if somewhat cutesy) tips and tricks for successful makeup application and for finding the shades that work best for you. CoverGirl's consumer relations department is consistently helpful if you have any questions or concerns. For example, if one of your favorite items was discontinued, you might want to know what replaced it, and they will let you know. Such service and customer concern is yet another powerful reason to believe CoverGirl really has its (class) act together.

    • I agree with Paula reviewer that this is a clever product and a bargain. Really pigmented, it doesn't bleed, and comes in some fun color combos. Unfortunately I found it drying, more so than other lipsticks with a similar finish. Deal breaker for me, but if you don't have a problem with dry lips it might be great.
