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!
