I liked the colour, works great as a crease colour.

So I really want to like this one. I love the color-kind of a burnt orange. It's a very fun color, but the payoff kind of sucks. The texture if too firm and it just doesn't go on very dark. I like the color better than MAC Coppering, but Coppering just has so much better payoff. Sorry Milani, the texture and pay off of the shadows keeps killing me! The colors are so pretty if only they were strong enough!

I LOOOOOVE this color! I use it most often as a blending color in my crease to spice up and add more visual interest to eye looks. It's also great though as a base color on the lids under a darker color to add more oomph to the lids. Great texture and pigmentation and one of my all-time favorite drugstore colors.

Honestly, I didn't have high expectations for this one. I reasoned that since it was only a few bucks it was worth the risk. I was so wrong. I really like it. It's color, but it's still kind of neutral. It has golden unertones, so it works well with a lot of the colors that I have already. As always, the texture is love and blendability is a 5. I need to get a back up.

Wonderful pigmentation, very flattering for my blue eyes, easy to blend. One of my favorite eyeshadows!

Flare is a shimmery reddish copper color. This is a dupe of MAC's Coppering eye shadow. It's very pigmented and goes on smoothly, and I didn't have any fallout. I wear this on the lid with Milani's Sun Goddess on the browbone. It also would look great with MAC's Copperized pigment. I love it. This is my third Milani shadow and I have to get more.

I love Milani Eyeshadows. They are so affordable and they are really good quality. I love the color Flare it is such a beautiful burnt orange color. I use it during the summer for those bronzed looks. I would buy it again.

I am NOT a fan of any orange makeup, but this color is just so beautiful. It is a glimmery copper persimmon-y color, and actually looks good on me if I apply it right, meaning lightly.
Usually I use it for lining and layer it, either over a darker brown or a medium brown, just to tone it down a little. It also looks good layered with purple shades, believe it or not.
A fun color to experiment with. There is a walgreens near me that still carries the now hard-to-find Milani singles, which is where I picked this up. Not all the older Milani singles shadows have the same texture, but this one, Java Bean, Antique Gold, and a few others have a creamy, expensive, pigmented texture that rivals any high end shadow out there.

I can't believe how good the pigmentation is on this considering it's price and the colour is such a beautiful copper red and slightly metallic!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Black, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Hazel
For the price, this is an awesome shadow. The consistency was nice and smooth. It applied and blended well with very little fall out. The color payoff was great. I love that this shadow can go from subtle to bold with just one or two extra sweeps of color... again, with very little fall out. It's a great color for fall. The container was also nice. Small, easy to flip open, and pretty secure. If you like copper/bronze/brick shades I think you'll like this shadow. I only deducted 1 lippie because it did make the fine lines in my eyelids stand out a little more than I'd like, but that may be due to my primer.. not sure yet.

I bought this a year ago when my hair was blonde and it did not get much use. However, 2 weeks ago I changed my hair color to a dark auburn and cut it all off short. I have used Flare almost every day since. My eyes are bluish/greenish and using Flare really makes the blue in them stand out. I have used it mainly in the crease or the V area. I have combined it with ricepaper under the brow and on the lid and then deep truth in the v and as a liner underneath and the combination with the dark blue was gorgeous! I have also combined it with all that glitters (a light golden color) and with naked lunch (a light peach). Both of these combos stood out less. I find at the end of the day that this Milani shadowis hanging in there with its MAC playmates--not a difference in lasting power at all. This warm, shimmery, burnished orange-red-copper shade is just as nice at $4. This may not be a shade everyone can pull off, but it's so unique, pigmented, and velvety blendable, it is worth a try. I also like the fact that Milani shadows can depot and fit in my MAC palette or my ELF 4 pan compacts.

It's basically the color of a pumpkin, not what I consider a hot eyeshadow shade. If you're blonde or paleI strongly advise you stay away from this color, or you'll look weird/sick and it'll just look off.Great texture though as with most Milani eyeshadows.

I used this color wet as a base with MAC's Cocomotion pigment over it. It's a beautiful color and I look forward to using it much more in the future!

All over youtube I heard this was the dupe to MAC Coppering, since I dont have that color yet all I can say is that this is a very intense copper color that I love it really makes my eyes pop and looks good with my skin coloring. It is a good neutral color for me. This is going down as one of my staples.

This is one of my favorite eyeshadows i own. With my skin tone, this eyeshadow can work as a dark pink and also as a red. If i use just a dab of it, it works great as a dark pinkish color. Also if i apply it slightly heavier it looks red. I would definitely buy this again and again.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily, Fair, Warm Hair: Blond, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Blue
This is a lovely warm reddish color with hints of copper and brown. Shimmery but not glittery. Like most Milani shadows, this is more pigmented than your typical drugstore shadow, and it's a great price! Like all eyeshadows, I did need to us UDPP to make it last all day on my oily lids.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
This is a beautiful shimmery copper-orange color, extremely vivid and striking. Like all Milani shadows, this is wonderful quality, richly pigmented and creamy. I apply this as a liner, this really makes my boring blue-grey eyes pop! I can't wear this as a shadow all over my lid as it makes me look sick, so I have to use this as a liner. Using it this way makes the shimmers really catch the light and draw attention to my eyes. Love this as a liner, the color is somewhat similar to Revlon's Luxurious Color Eyeliner in Burnished Amber, but slightly brighter orange. I don't know if I would buy this again, it is a vibrant unusual shade but can be difficult to wear.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Blond, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel
Absolutely gorgeous color. Not metallic enough to be copper, but a very vibrant shimmery persimmon color, a highly pigmented color, and the texture is like a silky, velvety shimmer...like butter! I used this in the crease and also below the lower lash line, with Milani's Sheer Sands on the browbone and Milani's Sun Goddess on the lid, with Milani Dark Brown eye pencil on the lower lash line and waterline and lightly on the upper lash line, smudged. Gorgeous! Really made my eyes look intense! I felt like I had stepped out of MAC. I did get some smudging in the crease on this one but hadn't applied a primer. I have very oily lids so that would probably be best! The shadow that I applied below the lower lashline did not smudge and stayed on all day. This is an incredible value for the money. I hope they always have this color.

I owe my new found obsession with cosmetics to this eyeshadow. I bought it to wear with my Queen of Hearts costume last Halloween. It's such a beautiful color, I wore it nearly everyday for a few months, as I was developing a bigger collection of colors from all brands to pair it with. It's an almost exact match for MAC Coppering (a touch darker, though), which I refused to buy until I dropped my beloved Flare and lost most of the product. I love this color, and will continue to buy it. It's HG, for sure.
