When the Covergirl Blast Flipsticks first came out, I was skeptical of the hype. I didn’t see what was so special about them. I viewed them as one end being a plain lipstick and the other end an overly shimmery, frosty mess. But boy, was I wrong.
I picked up one in the color Perky and I just started using it a few days ago. To start off with, I love the consistency. They are somewhere in between a regular Covergirl lipstick and a Revlon lipbutter. They have the texture of a tinted lip balm with the pigmentation of a lipstick. Brilliant? Yes, yes it is.
I immediately loved the bright hot pink end of this stick but I was a bit hesitant to try the shimmery pink lipstick. I have a phobia of this shade ever since a couple years ago when I though pale frosted lips were in. Yeah, it wasn’t a good look. However, this shade is different. When layered over the bright pink, it gives a gorgeous sheen and shine. This can be placed all over the lips or just in the center to give extra pout and a fuller look. This shade gives the look of placing a lip gloss over your lipstick when in reality, it’s just layering lipsticks. It’s quite a cool concept.
This Flipstick is marketed as having a bunch of endless looks in one product and I think they definitely achieved that. Both ends are completely wearable on their own but equally was fun when paired together. I like it. I like it a lot.

I think phone cases are yet another fun way to add some color and excitement into your outfit. They act as a stylish accessory so I really love these cases from Switch Easy. The first case, The Blossom, is so pretty! It has large 3D plastic flowers. I thought it would look a bit cheap in person but I think it looks so cute and it’s very durable as well! It also comes in a really pretty purple color, a mint, and a black. The next case is called the Colors case simply because of all the fun colors it comes in. This clean-design, silicone case is perfect for matching a more busy outfit. The bright but solid color makes a pop but without attracting too much attention away from your outfit. My favorite part about this case is that it has a special home button built in, in a coordinating color so it’s super cute! This case comes in 13 different colors so you are sure to find your favorite! Also, all the cases from Switch Easy come with headphone jack and connector protectors as well as screen protectors which is a nice added value for the price! Go check out Switch Easy!
