Why, oh why, did you have to be so pretty? Sadly this is an abbreviated review of Milani Haute Flash Lipgloss in Star Flash. I've searched for these ever since trying and falling in love with Milani Lip Flash. I scored a tube of this amazing gloss recently and was just happy as a lark *cue thunder and lighting* a woman screams....
The down side??.....
About 10 seconds after I put this on, my lips felt warm. At first I thought it was an intense plumping effect, but it felt..wrong. It wasn't a tingle or even a burn..it was HOT. Hot quickly turned to "why do I feel like I have pop rocks on my lips" At this point I am snapping the swatches as fast as I can and praying my lips don't explode. Clearly, I am very allergic to this gloss. I asked around because I know a few bloggers can't wear MAC Plushglass for this reason. I don't know if these products are similar and this is not a slam against the product. People react differently to all sorts of items. However, if you ever experience lip sensitivity or reactions, just be warned that this may have an effect on you. It is a first for me and I am truly bummed.
Crazy pop rock lips aside, it really is a great gloss. I can't speak to wear time, but this is a non sticky gloss that dries down to a cushiony finish, so I expect you can get a solid 2 hours out of this. I love Milani Lipglosses, period. You should too.
Where to buy: Online, I use Cherry Culture as they have frequent sales on Milani
