Milani Star Flash Haute Flash Lipgloss
Milani Star Flash Haute Flash Lipgloss

How Bright Will Your Star Flash?

Milani Star Flash Haute Flash Lipgloss ($7.49 for 0.18 oz.) is bright pop of fuchsia pink with multi-colored sparkle. MAC Dare to Dare is more yellow-toned and sheerer. MAC Eelctric Fuchsia is bluer-toned, lighter. MAC Preppy is lighter but comparable.

The Haute Flash formula is supposed to be “full coverage,” “highly pigmented, “extra glossy,” “non-tacky, and “anti-feathering.” This shade is almost opaque–so close, but not quite. There’s noticeable translucency, though when the shimmer catches the light, it nearly tricks you. The finish is high-shine in a metallic kind of way, but it’s not really glossy, as it looks a bit more like a lipstick than a gloss. Milani Flashy was thicker and a little gritty as time went on, but this shade was thinner, and less gritty–just a little texture as it faded away. If you remember MAC Dare to Wear Lipglass, this formula is very comparable. Star Flash wore for four hours, but it did become noticeably gritty as it faded away.

B+
Even though it's not as opaque as it's supposed to be, it's still quite opaque for a gloss--and it packs plenty of sparkle and shine. It's comfortable to wear and doesn't dry lips out!

  1. I have this in Hot Flash (RED). It a really fun product and that shade is pretty opaque.

    Would you say this compares to Mac Chromeglass in any way?

    Looks like a color to die for, and the glitter is so saturated!

    It’s very pretty on you. The one Milani lip gloss that always catches my eye in CVS is the 3-D Glitzy Glamour Gloss in some sort of neon-ish fuschia shade. It simultaneously draws me in and somewhat terrifies me with how bold it looks in the tube. One of these days, I’ll buy it just to see what it’s really like on the lips.

    it’s way better that it’s sheer. if it was opaque it would look very ugly…(very shimmery medium pink glosses and lipsticks are my pet peeve, lol)

    Curious about the smell. I’ve bought a lip gloss of theirs before, but want a big fan of the synthetic vanilla smell.

    I’m surprised by how much I like this. I doubt I’ll be able to find it, but I’ll keep it in mind to look for!

    Oooh, I like this shade. I bought this gloss in Hot Flash, which is bright red. A little bit of a mistake on my part, just because that shade is quite opaque and I don’t do opaque reds, really.

  10. Not bad, for such an affordable lipstick.

  11. Melody

    This would be fun on a night out with a smoky eye.

  12. I’ve had good luck with Milani so far, love this pink gloss as well!
