Milani July 2011 Products Review, Swatches, & Comparisons

Hey guys! I'm here to share with you some new products by my favorite drugstore company, Milani ! I get very excited when drugstores come out with their limited edition products but sometimes they just seem okay, however these are an exception. These products are all amazing and I highly recommend getting your hands on them!

High Speed Fast Dry One Coat Formula Nail Lacquer
It comes in shades Purple Rush, Instantaneous Blue, Racy Green, Fast Fuchsia, Jiffy Orange, Violet Dash, Yellow Whiz, & Hot Pink Frenzy. I have 7 out of 8 of them and I must say that they were much much more better than what I expected them to be!

Racy Green - emerald/teal color with green shimmers, opaque
Instantaneous Blue - royal blue with hints of pink shimmer, opaque
Purple Rush - true dark purple with violet shimmers, opaque
Violet Dash - thick opaque creme midtone lavender
Fast Fuchsia - thick opaque creme dark magenta with purple undertones
Jiffy Orange - thick opaque creme bright orange with red undertones
Yellow Whiz - thick opaque creme bright lemon-y yellow

Swatches (One Coat Used)
Milani High Speed Fast Dry One Coat
Lacquer Swatches from L to R :
Racy Green, Instantaneous Blue, Purple Rush,
Violet Dash, Fast Fuchsia, Jiffy Orange, Yellow Whiz

Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lipglosses are available in shades 101 Hot Flash, 102 Flashy, 103 In a Flash, & 104 Star Flash.

104 Star Flash - I was expecting it to be a much lighter pink but it looks like a muted fuchsia with an bright light blue sheen/shimmer. I like how its very unique and reminds me of Lisa Frank :). It's a bit to bold to be worn alone during daylight, would prefer this for clubbing. But I also tried it over some hard to wear light pink lipsticks and I must say that it made the colors instantly pop and look so beautiful!

Color Streaks Hair Mascara
It comes in shades, Fun in Red, Solid in Gold, Cool in Blue, Awesome in Purple, & Dramatic Shimmer. It has a mascara-like applicator brush. When you brush it through your hair it gives you small streaks of color. It blends in with your natural hair color. It also contains Keratin, which helps rebuild and restore hair

Solid in Gold - golden copper streaks, this gives me instant highlights! great for dark hair, it's my fave of the bunch!
Cool in Blue - royal blue streaks, shows up on my hair, but is probably better seen on lighter hair. I like how it's very pigmented
Awesome in Purple - dark purple streaks, i love how this gives my hair dimension!
Dramatic Shimmer - black jelly with iridescent boxy sequin pieces, this would be great for lighter hair giving some black streaks or even touching up or grey hairs! you can also control the amount of glitters you apply on your hair.
