Milk makeup has been hitting the beauty world by storm lately and as I am *slowly* transitioning to cruelty-free I wanted to see what it was all about.
I recently picked up the Birchbox exclusive Milk makeup A-game Set. It’s currently only $5 for two lipsticks and a mascara! So today I thought I’d do a little review of the products and if I think they are worth the full price (lipsticks and mascaras are around $20 full price!). If anything, I’d get a Birchbox for the deals!! They are always having sales of full size (and sample products), which is why I picked up this set!
Like I mentioned, I got two mini versions of the Demi-matte lipstick. I got a nude color and a bright red shade. In all honesty, I don’t think the red suits me very well. It is a creamy finish though, which is nice.
The nude shade is much more my color. It’s a pinky nude that is easy to apply. I find it just gives my lips a “your-lips-but-better” color. It does get stuck to some dry patches but that is nothing you can’t fix without applying lip balm!
Overall though, I’m not sure I’d pay $20 for either of them. I’m still looking for a cheaper nude lipstick that is cruelty-free but this one is a good start! But I also think if I wore lipstick wearer every day I’d feel different about the price. It’s a comfortable lipstick but let’s be real, I just don’t wear lipstick enough to pay full price! But the mini size is perfect for me (and perfect handbag size!).
Now the mascara is a different story…
I LOVE IT!
That may seem a bit extreme but this mascara is fantastic and exactly what I was looking for in a cruelty-free product! This mascara has a really interesting applicator that I find really helps lengthen and define my lashes while not leaving them clumpy. It also doesn’t irritate my eyes at all, which is always a bonus! It’s a very natural mascara but I’ve found if you layer it you can get quite a dramatic look if that is something you”re looking for!
When my mini mascara runs out I will definitely be purchasing the full-size (even if it is a bit pricey!!).
Have you tried any Milk makeup?
