I feel like it has been forever since I had done a review! Well it has been! It has just been a really busy couple of weeks and especially since it’s Easter/Spring break, I’ve been doing lots of things with the family, also it has took me a while to decide my full opinion on this product, I’ll explain everything!
First of all I would like to tell you about where I purchased this from, since I live in the U.K. I struggle to get my hands on a lot of amazing cosmetics which are made and sold in the USA, however through social media I came across a website which stocks so many amazing USA brands and products! The website is – http://londonlovesbeauty.com I would highly recommend checking their website out if you are looking for products which are not commonly found!
Anyway on to the product it’s self! Milk Makeup is a cosmetics company from the USA, it states on their website all their products are cruelty free and are made with the best possibly ingredients. The company it’s self strive for uniqueness and believe in personal style being the ultimate form of self expression. If you want to read a little more about the brand, there is a dedicated page on their website- https://milkmakeup.com/us/ For me personally it is also great to find another brand that is cruelty free, because a personal goal of mine is to eventually only purchase products which are cruelty free!
I have seen a lot on social media about Milk Makeup but not a lot of conversation about this particular product, I do know there is a numerous multi-purpose sticks in their range, but this one took my fancy the most. In my head I thought it would be a stick version of the Benefit Porefessional, and it does in fact act in a similar way by hiding pores and covering fine lines, but this was just my first initial thoughts. Okay, so this Blur Stick claims to be a face filter, it’s silicone free, a matte primer, minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines, works on all skin tones, oil free, non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores) and help makeup stay put. This is a lot of claims for one makeup product! I love that it’s silicone and oil free, this is making me think that it’ll be great for oily skin types, I do have dry to normal skin however I do have pores on my cheeks which I do like to hide or blue if I can and also I do have fine lines under my eyes and my smile lines I like to smooth out.
When I first opened this Blur Stick it looked like a foundation, and I was a little worried because I am very pale so I didn’t want this to give off any colour, luckily for me it does not! I swiped this on the back of my hand and it is clear, but actually you don’t even feel like anything is on your face. This is good and also a bit of a pain, great because it’s not heavy on the face however I didn’t know how much to put on because it felt like nothing was on my face, but I warn you now don’t over use this product or you will not like it! I did this the first couple of times but I came to realise I was applying way to much! I recommend a swipe on the areas needed, not to continuesly go over and over because the product will build up and start to ball up, any foundation etc will apply funny! Other than this I do really love how this product makes my skin look, it gives an almost cover to my face that iliminates imperfections! I have wore this Blur Stick on it’s own and with makeup and I do love both ways but personally I prefer it more on it’s own because I think you do see more of a difference without makeup on. The only really down point of this product is you can’t be too heavy handed because it will drag on you skin which is not good for you skin so you do have to be gentle with it!
I do think this is a very unique product, I haven’t seen anything like this before, the aim of the product, I have, but the style is very much their own. I would say this would be great for oily skin as it will matte the skin, as for makeup staying on longer I’m not sure, I didn’t find any difference but maybe another skin type may. The price of this product on their website is $36 I bought mine for £40. So this is up their in price, you do get 1oz of product and you hardly use any in one application compared to a cream or serum. So I guess it is a personal decision, weighing up the pros and cons, for me I think it is worth the money!
I hope you enjoyed this review and also I would like to say and MASSIVE thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway, it is now closed and I will be announcing the winner tomorrow! Thank you for all the support and love!
