Makeup Monday: Lip Flash

I’m giving my eyes a break from makeup while my right eye’s inflammation calms down (hence the sunglasses and profile shot), so I thought this would be a perfect time to try out my new lip colors from Milani. When I first got into makeup, I couldn’t afford the MAC I coveted, so I turned to Milani for high impact makeup. Back then, their single shadows were vastly superior to the palettes they offer now, but I still find myself turning to their products when I’m looking for something new (and affordable!) to try out. After a reader wrote to me and suggested I try these Milani Lip Flashes, I went to CVS (full disclosure: I am a paid member of their Beauty Club Beauty Board – but I paid for and used these on my own) and picked up a few different colors to test drive.

I’m pretty happy with them – they’re all very shimmery but not gritty, and the colors are beautiful. My favorite is the bright fuchsia 06 Flashy, which is highly pigmented.  07 In A Flash would have been my favorite based on the color, but it’s a little glossier and less pigmented than I would like. 03 Flashlight perfectly matches my glasses, which is fun, but I was hoping it would have more of an orange tint (it’s a cherry red).

Have you tried any other Lip Flashes? What did you think of them?

Close up and product shots after the jump!

In A Flash, Flashy, Flash Light.
