Max Factor Flipstick! It's Play Time!

Max Factor Flipstick in Gipsy Red

This isn't lipstick. This is Flipstick!! The latest news from Max Factor is that Flipsticking is the way to go. We have all gone mad for Nail Art but this is all about Lip Art. 


Max Factor Flipsticks are fab double ended lipsticks that allow you to play with colour. One end has a block colour, you 'flip' it and the other end has a coordinating iridescent shade. Fun! You can wear them alone, blend them, or create two tone effects.

Here is Max Factor's Flipstick in Gipsy Red. I have lined the lips in the darker block shade and highlighted the centre of the lips with the sheerer iridescent gold shade.

Next up is  Max Factor's Flipstick in Salsa Red...

Here I have used the block colour on the top lip and the iridescent colour on the bottom lip!

And check out these pinks. First is Folky Pink

I concentrated the darker colour around the lip line and applied the lighter colour to the centre of the lips.

This darker on outside and lighter in the centre again. Excuse the lipstick on the tooth. Whooooops!

  5. I saw a post on these yesterday - they look amazing! Love the first one; it's like a more affordable MAC CB96. The iridescent shade on Salsa red is probably my fave, though.

    It's so nice to see the effects in natural lighting without all the air brushing. Gypsy red seems closest to the pr shots.
