Flashing Lights

Milani Flashing Lights Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter ($12.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a gold-to-orange shifting shimmer. It had a luminous finish on my skin–glowing but not overtly shimmery or metallic–so it was easy to apply and never have to worry about emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation. On my complexion, it was a subtle highlighter and blusher. The powder was smooth, soft without being powdery, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$12.99/0.30 oz. - $43.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "silky-smooth" and have a "subtle, iridescent glow." Subtle is right on the money; they have an ethereal glow that's there but not blaring, and there's really a sea of intense, metallic highlighters on the market, so seeing something on the subtle end of the spectrum was refreshing. The powders had a soft, smooth, slightly dense consistency, but they did not feel stiff nor were they difficult to pickup with a brush. They blended out easily on the skin, sat well, and yielded a lit-from-within kind of glow. On me, they lasted for eight hours.
