Milani is one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands. A couple months ago, Milani launched a new lip product called Lip Flash, full coverage shimmer gloss in a jumbo pencil. Lip Flash comes in a total of 8 colors that include deep and electric purples, different shades of pinks, bright reds, and a golden brown. The two colors I have are “05 Hot Flash” (top) and “06 Flashy” (bottom):
Hot Flash is a red with red shimmer, and Flashy is a hot pink with hot pink shimmer. Flashy has more noticeable shimmer than Hot Flash, but I think both look equally great. Since these come in a pencil, you can line, define, and fill in your lips with one product (though I still like blending it out with a lip brush).
Although these pencils claim to be a gloss, they provide a lot more coverage than regular lip gloss that’s typically sheer. Take a look at how these two colors look on my lips below. Also, Lip Flash doesn’t give me that sticky/tacky feeling that regular lip gloss sometimes does (which is why I usually don’t wear lip gloss).
Milani Lip Flash retails for $6.99 each. They are highly pigmented, and they keep my lips moisturized throughout the day. I am really happy with the ones I have, and I’m ready to get them in the other colors! If you’ve tried these out, let me know what you think of them.
