As if Fire Fantasy was not exciting enough, Mac Factor has expanded their Colour Effect range with a line of new lipsticks called 'Flipsticks'. Colour Effect Flipsticks are double ended lipsticks: One end features a rich and creamy colour, the other a lighter lipstick shade.
You can wear each colour alone, blended together, one on each lip, or apply the lighter/brighter shade just to the centre of your lip to give a highlight effect to your lip.
Max Factor says:
To add a new dimension to lip colour, you can sweep one shade over your upper lip and "flip it" to apply the second shade to your lower lip. Another way to customise lip colour is by outlining lips in one colour, then "flip it" and apply the second shade to the centre, giving a graphic texturised lip.
I don't think I will ever wear the upper lip with one colour and the lower lip with the other colour but I absolutely love the 'highlight' effect with the brighter/lighter in the centre of the lips or 'graffiti' effect as Max Factor calls it. The model wears Gipsy Red all over the lips and then flipped the lipstick over and dabbed the gold colour in the centre area of the lips.
Let's have a look at some swatches, shall we? From what I can gather from the website, there are 6 (double) shades available. My local Superdrug is only storing 5 shades and I missing 'Salsa Red'.
Bloomy and Swingy leave me indifferent but Folky, Boreal amd Gipsy are to die for! I don't know if I could pull off gipsy with my yellow teeth but I totally understand why they chose that shade on the promotion picture. It is simply stunning and most of all, so much fun and has so much more depth than just a lipstick with a bit of gloss on.
The Flipsticks are sold exclusively in Superdrug and are on special offer at the moment. Buy them before by 10th April and you get them at £2 off: £6.49 instead of £8.49
Will you be flipping it?
