Max Factor Flipstick Colour Effect Swatches

Max Factor often releases products that are extremely similar to those by its sister brand, Cover Girl (both are owned by Proctor & Gamble). Like the Cover Girl Blast Flipstick, the Max Factor Flipstick Colour Effect features a rich, creamy colour paired with a lighter, iridescent lipstick shade.

Only four color combos are available in Switzerland, versus six in the UK and thirteen for the Cover Girl version in the US.

Top Row (from left): 30 Gypsy Red and 35 Swingy Brown
Bottom Row: 15 Boreal Mauve and 05 Bloomy Pink

These have a lovely texture that glides on very smoothly. The richer shades have very impressive color payoff. The lipstick bullets are quite a bit smaller than normal though, which probably takes some getting used to.
