Milani High Speed Fast Dry Spring 2013

I have another Milani review for you all today. These are 6 new shades for the High Speed Fast Dry One Coat Formula line. These feature a brand new wider brush and have 60 second dry time.

Quick Teal, Flaming Race, Rapid Orchid, Pink Express, Instant Pearl, & Move on Mauve

Quick Teal
Quick Teal is a medium teal creme.

Flaming Race
Flaming Race is a vibrant red-coral creme. 

Rapid Orchid
Rapid Orchid is blackened plum creme.

Pink Express
Pink Express is a pastel pink creme. 

Instant Pearl
Instant Pearl is a white shimmer pearl. 

Move on Mauve
Move on Mauve is a mauve with a violet shimmer.

Color: Quick Teal, Flaming Race, and Pink Express are great colors! Rapid Orchid definitely looks like black versus a purple shade. I still do really like this one because it's very glossy. I honestly can't get on board with Instant Pearl and Move on Mauve. These do not seem like modern colors to me. I really feel these could of been replaced with something like a bright blue creme and an on trend nude. 

Formula: Sadly, these are not one-coat formulas. I used 2-3 coats on all of these. I did find some of the formulas a little uneven and not the easiest to apply. I'm thinking the unevenness could be because of the wider brush. I personally struggle with wider brushes, so this may just be my experience?

Overall: I love Milani and their recent Texture collection was a huge home run for me! I also loved their Jewel FX and One Coat Glitters line. These new High Speed Fast Dry colors are not completely cutting it for me. These do dry fast. There are some hits and misses here as far as color and formulation. If you had me choose favorites, I would go with Quick Teal, Rapid Orchid, and Pink Express. I think the pigmentation and formula on these are the best.  I'm not really feeling the others in the collection so much, but that could just be me. 

The six new Milani High Speed Fast Dry shades are available at CVS, Target, Walgreens, Walmart, Kmart and Milani's website for $4.99 each.
