Milani Lip Flash Pencil Review

Milian introduced the full coverage shimmer gloss pencils. These pencils are amazing. I love the colors and the application. I have purchased 4 of the lip pencils and I have enjoyed them. The are quick and easy. I love the packaging unlike regular lipstick you can look at it and easily know what color it is. I think of this more like a buildable lip gloss. I dont quite understand why Miliani did not do a lot of promotions for this product it really deserves more attention. It transitions easliy from the summer to the fall...I can see the Lip Flash and the Star Flash applied along with a smokey eye. The News Flash would look terrific in the fall. I say pick up several colors I am sure you could put them to use.

The New Nars 2010 Collection

The NARS 2010 Collection is wonderful...I had to see each color in person for myself. NARS

Douceur Blush - very nice pink brown color blush. Although the color is cute beware my darker skin sitters it can come off a litte ashy on us.

Daphne Single Eyeshadow - Beautiful Purple color named after Daphne Guinness.. thought the color was beautiful but it is going to take some work to get the color payoff you may be looking for.

Mangrove Single Eyeshadow - A Wonderful bright color for the fall, a dull yellow color that brightens the eye, so much you could do with this color.

Coconuct Grove Single Eyeshadow - A dark brown to die for. I could not find one brown in Sephora that could stand up to this brown, it is a must have...NARS this is a keeper.

Rouge Basque Lipstick - a beautiful red lipstick for all colors, not too bright and not too dark.

Strawberry Fields - A nice pink gloss for those who love Nars Gloss. Dont think its a must have.

Palladium Soft Touch Shadow Pencil - I am on the fence with this one... the color is beautiful however you can pass there are so many products out this color if you just dont love it I dont see a reason to spend 24 us dollars for it.

Tzarine Dou Eyeshadow and Rajasthan Duo Eyeshadow - they both are nice pallets nothing extra special about them for darkskin more of a highlighligh, crease color for dark chocolate girls.
