Hi guys! Today I want to share with you a review I’ve thought about doing for the MILK Makeup Blur Stick . Please note that no one paid me to do this review. I am just a girl that likes makeup so I thought I would buy this and review it since it’s something that’s new now.
Where I Heard About This Product
One day when I had more time on my hands (I know, crazy right!?) I was on SnapChat and after seeing everyone’s snaps, I decided to read the articles on Snap (sometimes they have good ones). One such article was on the newest makeup products to try. There were about 5 items, but the only one that caught my eye was the Milk Makeup Blur Stick. It promised to reduce pores and give your face a “blurred” look, sort of like in photoshop with the blur tool. I took a screencap of this and saved it for future reference.
When Christmas came and went, I had in my hands, a gift card from my brother and sister-in-law for Sephora. They knew I loved makeup so they got me a gift card. Yay! I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to buy: the blur stick. It came nicely in Sephora’s awesome packaging, and as soon as it arrived, I knew I would try it on. I also ordered a liquid eyeliner that had been recommended by this fabulous Beauty blogger: Kandee Johnson (my favorite makeup artist ever!) and several samples. I decided on the spot I would apply the blur stick and use only the samples and eyeliner to do my “face” that day. Oh and no sponges or other tools, I was using my fingas!
I will show you at the end what that result looked like. For now, I’d like to show you what the blur stick looks like on my face only.
There I am holding the product in my hand just to prove that I do own it.
Before And After
And here’s the before and after:
What Is It And What Does It Do?
The blur stick comes in a roll up tube and sort of looks like old fashioned deodorant! I say old fashioned because I use a spray deodorant, lol! It has a velvety/ satiny texture to it. When you rub it on your face (directly using the bottle) it seems to dull your face up a bit, making redness a bit less noticeable and shiny areas less shiny. In essence, it diminishes imperfections on your face.
I didn’t apply it where you see that red line on my right cheek (my daughter scratched me!). I’ve seen some beauty bloggers say you shouldn’t apply it to the bridge of your nose, but I do. It leaves a nice soft feel to your skin. Afterward, you can apply your foundation and makeup.
With Makeup On!
Here’s me done up right after the above photos were taken!
Here is the direct link to the product on Amazon’s website. It’s a pricey product and therefore I don’t use it all the time. I save it for special occasions. Overall, I do like it and am happy that I’ve bought it. I feel that it does make a difference on my complexion and I’m happy with the result after applying all my makeup.
And here’s that picture I was telling you about where I am only wearing Sephora samples and liquid eyeliner and the Blur stick. This is a very minimalist look, in my opinion. I received a sample size of Kevyn Aucoin medium coverage Etherealist foundation, Bite the Multistick which I used on my cheeks, and Make Up Forever Artist Plexi-Gloss on my lips. And that’s it!
Have you tried the Blur Stick? What are some of your newest makeup finds? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
