Are you ready to get down with some super shimmery, saturated lip colors? Then look no further.

Milani’s Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencils are in a word, amazing. They come in eight colors, all vivid and very pigmented.

These guys are basically lipsticks and lip gloss in one fat pencil. Most of them have complete coverage like a lipstick and have a glossy, moisturizing finish like a lip gloss.

The one thing they are missing is a fine tip for precision lip outlining (like a lip liner) but it’s no biggie in my book.

These are much firmer feeling than the Hard Candy Visibly Wet Pencils I recently reviewed, which is a good thing. You have much more control over them, they don’t get all melty on you as you’re applying.

I reviewed Star Flash awhile ago, which is why it wasn’t included here.

Meet the colors:

  • Lip Flash – Muted plum/brown with heavy gold flash
  • News Flash – Dark burgundy/purple shimmer
  • Flash Light – Light strawberry red shimmer
  • Photo Flash – Bright pink shimmer
  • Hot Flash – Classic, deep red shimmer
  • Flashy – Bright fuchsia shimmer
  • In A Flash – Light purple/pink shimmer with blue flash

L to R: Lip Flash, News Flash, Flash Light, Photo Flash, Hot Flash, Flashy, In A Flash

What can I say, it’s hard to find anything bad to say about these! They are pigmented, apply easily, are glossy, feel great, last long and are inexpensive ($6.99)! Maybe the drawback is that they aren’t super easy to find or you need a large pencil sharpener? That’s what I’m going with 🙂 Grade A!!

Perhaps you are interested in winning some of these beauties, yes? Well I’ve got four of them to give away to one lucky person!
