BzzAgent Review: Covergirl blastflipstick

In case someone doesn’t already know, BzzAgent often lets you try out new products and services for free in exchange for your honest review. This time I was sent three different COVERGIRL Blastflipsticks in Minx, Vixen and Stunner.

After looking at them I decided to try Vixen because the other two options just wouldn’t go well with my skin tone. I first applied three coats of the creamy side to make sure I have maximum coverage. Three coats were definitely unnecessary since these lipsticks are highly pigmented, but my lips felt a bit dry so I wanted to apply more to keep them moist.

The colors are actually a lot brighter in person compared to the pictures on Covergirl’s website, so I wasn’t sure if any of them will suit me at all since I prefer more of a bold eyes+muted lips look. I feel like my lips don’t have a particularly pretty shape so why bother accentuating them at all. However I would love to be proven wrong and find just the right lip product to make them look pretty. Unfortunately this lipstick isn’t going to be that product. I could instantly smell the chemical scent which is a very major turn-off for me and for many other people I assume. Too bad because the colors are gorgeous and very fashion-forward, I can totally see these combos being on a runway.


  • Long-lasting color
  • Sophisticated shades
  • Very pigmented


  • Feels dry on the lips
  • The shimmer side feels too “grainy”
  • Chemical smell
The verdict: Great lipstick if you can get past the smell and the grainy texture of the shimmery side. Remember that all of the colors are much brighter in person than in the pictures.

P.S.: Sorry this review is so brief, I generally don’t enjoy writing about the products I didn’t like, but I still felt that I had to share my experience with you.
