Have I mentioned how much I love lipstick? Yes, I know I did just two days ago. Lipstick presents endless possibilities for transformation. And speaking of transformation, how about lipstick that transforms itself?! Lipstick that turns color in response to your body chemistry.
I recently received new Flirt lip pHetish Color Converting Lipstick collection of three fun and fab shades. A few years ago, I bought Hare Magic Green Lipstick, a green bullet that turns pink. It was definitely fun to try and inexpensive, but rather cheaply made in China with some questionable ingredients. It’s sitting in a drawer somewhere. The brand I’m going to introduce you to is a whole different story!
First, look at the Flirt packaging! Could I love it any more? And the cases are covered with colored kisses, too. Plus, the cases click shut and stay secure.
There are three shades:
- On Phire: yellow turns coral
- Super Phresh: green turns hot pink
- High Phever: blue turns to berry, a lovely pinky purple shade.
I guess my favorite would have to be the yellow that looks orange rather than coral on my lips. I’m always on the hunt for a great orange shade.
The way that Flirt transforms itself is that the colorful blend of pigments in each bullet change according to the pH in the moisture of your lips. So there could be slight variations in the shade from person to person.
I would describe these lipsticks as deeply colored lip balms. They are natural-looking, though definitely pigmented. The colors seem translucent though very colorful, if I’m getting my point across. Also their formula is so hydrating, formulated with sunflower and rosemary Vitamin E packed extracts.
They last in their semi-glossy form for a few hours before needing to be re-applied, and they fade with leaving a lot of color behind. Though they don’t make it through a meal, I think they perform very well for lip balms.
Flirt is definitely a fun, modern, young brand. It would make a great gift because it’s so artfully put together and amusing. Though it may be targeted to young women, that doesn’t stop me for a second from enjoying these playful lipsticks. I love the moisturizing feel of the formula on my lips, the fun colors that are perfect for everyday wear, and the packaging with the colored kisses is just too much fun! I know I’ll be getting a lot of use out of them this summer (though I don’t plan to wait till then to put them in my rotation).
Each lipstick is priced at $18 at FLIRTCOSMETICS.COM. They’re made in the U.S. The brand also sells a double-ended liquid eyeliner, a false lash applicator and adhesive, as well as lash buds (3 individual lashes together) in black and also holiday colors.
