Milk Makeup Review Update

If you watched my latest Tester Tuesday video, “Milk Makeup Review”, first impression demo, tutorial, and try on, you’d see that I was a bit underwhelmed with the products I tried from Milk Makeup. Not sure if I had been buying into the hype or fun, sleek packaging, but when I finally sat down to film my first impression Tester Tuesday review, I just didn’t see what made them special. After filming the video, I looked in the mirror a few hours later and hated my makeup. The cream products did not sit well on my skin. Everything was slipping and sliding, even though I had used a setting powder.

As you already know if you watch the video, the balm tint was the worst of the four Milk Makeup items I purchased and tested. The immediate sunblock taste threw me off and I had to wipe the product off my lips before I even finished filming the video. The worst was the lingering taste I had for hours after. Not worth it.

While the Milk Makeup Highlighter gave a really nice natural dewy look, I started to look sweaty later on and to be honest, there are too many great highlighters on the market in the same price range for me to continue to fuss with the Milk Makeup one.

The Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer was also a good idea, but not well executed. I found that I had to use more product than I should to achieve the look I like, but the product also build up and slipped around on the face. I had set everything with my bye bye pores from IT Cosmetics. The bronzer isn’t horrible, but again there are tons of cream bronzers on the market in the same price range that work just as well, if not better.

My favorite item was the Duo Concealer by Milk Makeup, but the color options suck. Fair and light were too light, medium was dark and orange. I could have gone with a medium that was neutral based, but the orange medium wasn’t a good match and it had to go back. I probably could have gone for the light shade and used it under the eyes just fine, but why do I need two different concealers for under they eyes? The duo concealer should actually have two different shades or at least one a brightening shade. The consistency of the marshmallow concealer is unique and worth a try if you happen to match the shades they have.

I did not like Milk Makeup and was so disappointed that I actually left the footage of this video sitting around for a month before finally editing and uploading. It’s not that the products were awful, it just didn’t live up the expectations or the price range. This is why I am following up with this blog post. After editing, watching, and re-watching, I just felt that I needed to follow up with a blog post explaining that I don’t think it’s worth it. I haven’t tried the whole range yet, but the products I did try didn’t work out for me. I ended up returning all of the items and I think you can tell in my video that I was trying to be polite, but truly I was underwhelmed by what I had purchased. I never want to bash a brand or company because that’s not fair. They worked hard to create their products. My opinion is only one person based on my personal preference and my specific skin type. You might LOVE Milk Makeup, so I do always try to state the facts of why I like or do not like something. Hopefully you can judge for yourself based on your own personal preferences. If you want a product for a super dewy wet look, defiantly pick up the highlighter. If you are able to find your color match, try the concealer! I like that product! If you like the taste of sunblock (my husband actually does) then the balm tint won’t bug you. Unfortunately, for me these products didn’t workout.

    Sucks that you were so disappointed by these! That tinted lip balm really sounded horrible! As soon as I saw your face after applying it, I knew you weren’t going to like it. Love this honest review! x
