These new double ended lipsticks from Max Factor launch next month. Designed to be worn indvidually or with the two together, they’re actually pretty cool. You can wear them in a number of ways; either one shade on the top lip and the other on the bottom, or apply one shade over the whole lip and than add the other colour to just the centre, finishing well before the edge of the lip for a kind of blended colour blocky-thing. That effect looks very good indeed. I’d personally worry if wearing one colour on the top lip and another on the bottom that others might think I’d made a terrible make up mistake! I think I need to be a follower, not a leader on this one till everyone gets used to the idea that different shade lipsticks *is* actually a deliberate look! The image above, by the way, is topped with gloss.

The Flipstick Line Up

This is the Flipstick, Gypsy Red, used to create the lip look at the top of the post.

The consistency is lovely and creamy – I have to be honest and say I haven’t worn them enough to know if they are drying or not – and the pigment is really, really good. I quite like the concept of lips getting the same creative licensce as nails..and think we’re at the very beginning of a texture trend for lips.
