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.

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

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

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