Milani has some new colors in their Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lipgloss line this spring. A few other things have changed with these glosses as well.
A couple of the colors have changed a bit and the packaging is a little different. They now feature a shorter tube (same amount of gloss inside though), a gold cap and a flat paddle wand.
The two new colors added to the line are Quick Flash and Golden Flash.
In A Flash
Star Flash, Quick Flash, Flashy, In A Flash, Hot Flash, Golden Flash
Star Flash is a blue-based cool pink shimmer.
Quick Flash is a pale ballet pink shimmer.
Flashy is a bright pink shimmer.
In A Flash is a deep purple shimmer.
Hot Flash is a cool red shimmer.
Golden Flash is a golden beige shimmer.
Milani did mention to me they changed the color Flashy a bit from the older collection. But I noticed subtle differences in Star Flash and Hot Flash as well. In A Flash is pretty dead on to the color it was before.
These are super pigmented, super shimmery and moisturizing. They aren’t sticky at all, don’t have a weird taste and the colors are just vivid and gorgeous.
Here are the older ones (black caps) compared to the new (gold cap) ones. As mentioned you get the same amount of gloss in them (0.18 oz) as before.

Hot Flash is very similar but I do think the newer version is a slightly brighter and lighter red. Maybe a little more orange in it than before.
In A Flash is pretty darn close, maybe a little lighter, but on the lips they look the same.
Flashy is definitely different. The old version is a more purple/pink and the new is a lot more flamingo pink. LOVE this one and glad they changed it actually!
Star Flash appears pretty similar in the tube but the older version has more blue/purple shimmer in it and the new one is more of a soft ballet pink.
Amazing, fabulous, fantastic. I love these and cannot say enough good things about them. If you didn’t pick them up before or missed out on the similar MAC ones (comparison here), get these!
Availability: Now in stores (these are part of the perm collection!!).
Pricing: $6.00 for 0.18 oz.
What do you think? Did you ever get the older ones? Are the differences enough that you may pick up the new ones also?
