Milani Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil
I love lipsticks and lip glosses. There are pros and cons to both. Lipsticks can be very drying, possibly leaving your lips in a not-so-desirable state to look at after a couple of hours or so. Lip glosses can either be sticky or runny, take your pick. At least those are the main cons for me on each type of product. We’re not even going to talk about other factors such as the taste and smell. The way they look is what I love. Lipsticks are generally very pigmented and have this sleek, satiny look. Lip glosses have that dewy, shiny finish. Could there be something in between? Why, yes! Enter Milani Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil.
These are described as “Electrifying lip color. Easy to sharpen.” on the body of the pencil itself. They applied on very smoothly and I love how it looks on my lips. They are all very pigmented with a shimmery, shiny finish. The consistency during application is a dream. It’s literally something between a lipstick and lip gloss. It has the opacity and saturation of a lipstick with a good amount of moisture that’s not sticky or watery. It feels good on my lips and has a glossy finish. And the wear? They stayed on for hours on my lips. I only had to reapply after eating lunch and it’s still on when I got home from work. I work at least 8 hours a day. I am not kidding! The wear is very impressive for my expectations of the product. I detected no smell at all from these.
These are part of Milani’s permanent makeup line. I spotted these on CVS the last time I was there. They retail for $6.99 each, cheaper than other options out there. Will I be buying these again? You bet!
