Remember the Milani Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencils that I fell so madly for? Well for summer 2011, Milani is introducing us to a new product with some of the same amazing colors!
Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lipgloss’s (Limited Edition) are shimmery, glittery glosses in a tube, rather than pencil form. They matched four of the colors to the pencils and they are pretty exact in terms of color.
- Star Flash – Pale pink with purple/blue flash
- Flashy – Fuchsia shimmer
- In A Flash – Light purple/pink shimmer with blue flash
- Hot Flash – Deep cherry red shimmer
When compared to the pencils, I notice two things. A. They are slightly more moist (though I find the pencils to be pretty moisturizing also) and B. Less maintenance overall because you don’t have to sharpen a gloss!
In A Flash
Star Flash, Flashy, In A Flash, Hot Flash
As you can tell, they are very shimmery and vivid with really great pigmentation.
The only one that doesn’t look almost exact to it’s pencil form is Star Flash. I find that the pencil form is more of a super pale ballerina opalescent pink, compared to this one, which is deeper and has more of a lavender flash.
I love all these colors, they are SO gorgeous and shiny and so perfect for summer!
There is barely any sticky feeling at all and no scent that I detected either.
But wait…perhaps these remind you of something you have seen before?
Milani Star Flash, MAC Dare To Dare, Milani Flashy, MAC Gimmie That!, Milani In A Flash, MAC Ban This!, Milani Hot Flash, MAC Bold & Brash
I actually don’t mind this at all because MAC doesn’t make those anymore, and I was worried about running low on a few tubes I have. Also these are a great less expensive alternative to MAC and you can find them in drugstores! NOTE: these are also limited edition for the month of July, so if you want them, stock up!
Fabulous, amazing, perfection. I love these shimmery glosses because they are opaque, “flashy”, moisturizing, non-gritty, non-sticky and readily available.
Availability: July only in select drugstores (not online)
Now that you have seen these, what do you think about them? Do you think you would buy these over the pencil version?
