Milani Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil Review

Big thick lip pencils are in right now. We've been seeing less of your average gloss, and more balms and and lip shades that come in large pencil shapes. Electrifying color and immensely hydrating, Milani Cosmetics introduces Lip Flash --- spring’s trendiest beauty accessory in Crayola-chic form. This highly-pigmented pencil allows you to perfect your pout with the convenience of a pencil, coverage of a lipstick. Similar to designer brands such a Clinique and NARS, Milani’s Lip Flash offers designer quality with bargain prices

Lip Flash is easily sharpenable, non-tacky and anti-feathering formula. First thought on these pencils; they are extremely hydrating and full of pigment. They are a bit hard to fill in your lips, so you'll need a good sharpener, but the color is bright and beautiful. These aren't the type of lip shades where you can easily apply without a mirror, but the color payoff is quite nice.

Lip Flash is available in eight shades—from the lightest baby pink to a deep copper:

Star Flash (pastel pink with violet shimmer)
In a Flash (violet with blue-violet shimmer)
Flashy (hot pink with pink shimmer)
Hot Flash (red with red shimmer)
Photo Flash (fuchsia with gold and fuchsia shimmer)
Flash Light (coral with red shimmer)
News Flash (purple with violet shimmer)
Lip Flash (copper-bronze with gold shimmer)

Overall I love the 3 Milani Flash Pencils I tried out. When I first saw the colors I thought for sure I wouldn't like the brown and the dark pink, however those two are my favorite and like I said earlier, the color payoff is fabulous, and it lasts just as long as a tube of lipstick.

The Milani Shimmer Gloss Pencils sell for $6.99 at your local CVS, and for that price you're getting a steal. Love these pencils! I think pencil glosses are my new favorite trend.
