Maxfactor Flipstick Colour Effect- Boreal Mauve

 Hello lovelies i hope your all well!! now i dont actually know the reason behind this purchase, i think it was a bit of a whim purchase, having had it in my possession for just over a month, its somewhat gone unloved.however today i decided to finally put it to the test.
the idea behind the max-factor colour effect flipsticks is that one shade has a creamy rich colour while the other is lighter and pearly, perfect on their own but once combined creates a lovely separate shade. On top of this the lipsticks are thinner than the usual lipstick and because of this theres room to  create your own look, such as having your upper lip one shade and the lower lip the other its entirely up to preference. The flipstick i chose was boreal mauve, more for the darker shade than anything else. and to be perfectly honest i dont really know why ive neglected this, after properly swatching this i definitely think it will have more use. for around £6 flipsticks are really good value for money and in reality your paying for three shades (bargain) aswell as being pretty pigmented, however my only qualm is the cheapy packaging, however it is sturdy enough!! 
Have you tried flipsticks?? what did you think??
