Milani Photo Flash Lip Flash Gloss Pencil

Milani Photo Flash Lip Flash Gloss Pencil ($6.49 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “fuchsia with gold and fuchsia shimmer.” I wouldn’t really describe it as fuchsia; it’s more of a pink-tinged red with fuchsia and red micro-glitter. When applied, the color coverage is mostly opaque, and it looks like a really juicy red with just enough translucency to give it that pinky-red coloring. The formula is supposed to be highly pigmented, extra glossy, and contain “moisture-rich” ingredients. It’s not supposed to feather or feel sticky either.

Like Flashy, it yields great color payoff but doesn’t look as glossy as a lipgloss. It looks more like a shiny lipstick to me than a lipgloss, and it feels that way, too. This particular shade wore for just over five hours, but I did notice the grit of the glitter after an hour or so of wear.

This shade also has a very similar Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color dupe in Adrenaline. The two formulas feel very, very similar; I doubt I could point out the differences in a blind test. Some other similar shades include Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (redder) and Dior Technicolor (less pink).

Even though I love the way they look and how much color they deliver, I don’t love that noticeable grittiness after an hour of wear. Luckily, the glitter doesn’t travel! You may want to freeze these pencils before sharpening, as their soft, creamy consistency make them harder to sharpen and messier to deal with. You should also expect some waste during the sharpening process if they are at room temperature.

Aww cute! You look great with ALL lip products it’s unbelievable!

BTW I tried a couple of Guerlain Rouge Automatiques out today. I didn’t want to fall in love with lipsticks that cost 35 euros, but I DID! I’ll just have to think long and hard (and pull all of your swatch pictures out) before I decide which one to get first now (loving Coque d’Or). They feel like lip balms. It’s incredible!

I never thought of freezing a soft pencil before sharpening to make it less messy, but what a great idea! Thanks for that; I will definitely have to give that one a try!

These are really pretty, but some of the colors are almost TOO flashy and I love bright makeup. I have Star Flash and In A Flash and both colors have this ridiculous holographic blue tint/flash to them…almost too much at times. I think I’m gonna check out the red and magenta ones because they look to be more my type.

That looks like such a gorgeous color for summer!I already have In a Flash, and Hot Flash has been ordered.I’m normally a full-coverage-lipstick kind of woman, but it’s SO hot here in the Dallas area that I may do sheer lip colors for a while.
