Playing with Milk!

Hello Beautyowls!

Today’s post is about a makeup brand I discovered not too long ago. I was much eager to try these products out and they were on my radar for a while now.

Milk Makeup was always a beauty brand that was fascinating me! I find their whole brand presence and philosophy quite appealing. Multi-use, on-the-go with great ingredients sounds like beauty products to me, that I wouldn’t hesitate to put on my face.

Out of their whole product range, I was eager to thy out the Sunshine Skin Tint with SPF 30 for 42$ (0.07oz\ 20ml) and the Eye Vinyl for 20$. Both products are housed in a transparent tube with a pen-system and the Milk logo stamped on the packaging. The foundation tube is equipped with a rollerball tip and the Eye Vinyl with a smooth sponge applicator.

The Foundation

Sunshine Skin Tint is a foundation for those of us that are looking for a super lightweight, natural, your skin but better makeup. I have to admit that at the beginning I wasn’t sure if this product would work for me due to all the controversial reviews but here is my experience with this foundation.

The first thing I noticed was the scent. A light citrusy, fresh scent that I found very pleasant and natural. The foundation does contain citrus and coconut oils is vegan and cruelty-free and it comes in 8 shades (I have shade light). Upon first application, one has to click several times in order to get the product out. When the product comes out of the dispenser it has the shape of a flower, which I found very cute. The application is very easy and quick, all you need to do is role the rollerball tip on your face, just try to distribute the product evenly. (I had lots of fun with it as you can see!)

Now, I know that on the website, it says that you can apply the foundation with your hands but I personally am not a fan of that. Instead, I used my Beauty Blender or my Artis Oval Nr. 6 brush (for more coverage), and both worked fine.

The texture is very creamy and lightweight and the product feels great on my skin. The formula takes a few minutes to dry and after that, I can wear this foundation for hours. At the begging, I was worried that it would make my skin oily but nothing! (I did use a mattifying primer and did set it with some loose setting powder, from Laura Mercier.)

However, if you are having problematic skin, then this might not be the right product for you. The coverage is very minimal and although it claims to be buildable it really isn’t. When I first applied the Skin Tint, I had some serious hormonal breakouts to deal with and they were still poking through after 2 layers. (I eventually used a concealer and all worked well!) If you have, dry, blemish-free and even mature skin then this might be a great option for you. The foundation didn’t cling to any of my dry patches, it didn’t sink into any of my fine lines and one of the most amazing observations I made, was that it didn’t accentuate my pores at all, even after 8+ hours of wear time (did anyone else have the same experience?).

The Eye Shadow

Eye Vinyl is a product for those of us that want to create a wet eye look. I always wanted to try this type of eyeshadow and I selected the one in Black due to the fact that I didn’t have anything similar in my collection.

The first thing I noticed about this product was the pigmentation and the stickiness to it. One can really choose the intensity of the color and wear it bold or sheered out. The application is very easy and fast with the sponge applicator. The eye vinyl comes in 4 shades and is best blended with the fingers. These shadows are vegan and cruelty-free.

Although I really enjoyed the look I, unfortunately, didn’t like the feel of this product at all! The eyeshadow did crease and when sheered out it lost intensity. Finally, the feel of stickiness did stay throughout the whole day and I was glad to wash the product off my eyes by the end of the day.

Finally, I truly enjoyed trying these products and I would even say that the Sunshine Skin Tint foundation quickly became my go to foundation for everyday application. I find it a pity that it doesn’t have a bit more coverage but I can work around that with a concealer. The Eye Vinyl was an interesting product to try out and I also had fun playing with it but I would not repurchase it since I know that I wouldn’t really use it that much.
