Milani has brought back the infamous Haute Flash Lipglosses and this time around it’s a permanent addition to the lineup, with two new shades for Spring 2012. A lot of people compared these glosses to the lipglasses from the MAC Dare To Wear Collection when they came out originally last Summer. Looking at swatches of Dare To Wear on Temptalia, I would have to say that I agree. The packaging on these glosses has been revamped to give a more sleek appearance. The tube is shorter (no worries, same amount of product) and the cap is now gold instead of black, more in line with Milani’s signature packaging.
The Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lipglosses are highly pigmented glosses that gives almost the same coverage of a lipstick. They are super glossy and full of shimmer. Not sticky at all, it has a slanted , almost flat doe foot wand for precise application. The slight vanilla scent is delightful and not over-powering.
Hot Flash, Flashy, In A Flash and Star Flash are part of the original line up, while Quick Flash and Golden Flash are new for spring 2012.
Hot Flash, Red with Red Shimmer
Flashy, Hot pink with Hot Pink Shimmer
In A Flash, Violet with Purple & Blue Shimmer *My favorite!*
Star Flash, Baby Pink with Blue Shimmer
Quick Flash, Coral Pink with Holographic Shimmer
Golden Flash, Gold with Copper Shimmer
The colors are super pigmented and apply smooth. They are not drying and pretty long lasting for a lipgloss. Milani also has the Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencils which are just like the Haute Flash lipglosses but in pencil form. The Lip Flash Pencils has four of the same shades as the Haute Flash glosses. See how they compare…

The shades from the Haute Flash line and Lip Flash line with the same namesake are not exact dupes of each other, but complement each other well and can be worn together.
