Milk Makeup Blush Oil ($26) is a new liquid cheek color that comes packaged in a rollerball pen for easy application. This new blush is insured with orange peel, sunflower, and grape seed oils so it not only adds color to skin but hydrates it.
Let’s take a look!
Milk Makeup Blush Oil is available in three pretty shades and as I mentioned above comes housed in a rollerball click pen for application. Sadly, this is super small size at a very expensive price tag. You can purchase a NARS Blush for $30 and it holds twice as much blush as Milk Makeup Blush Oil which is 0.135 oz and $26. It looks pretty big as the click pen is chunky in size but it really doesn’t hold a ton of blush.
Size aside I really liked this formula. To apply you simply click the bottom of the bottom and color flows into the rollerball, now you can just roll the color gently onto your cheeks and blend with fingers. The packaging is cool but a little messy so be sure to clean off the rollerball with each use. As cute as this packaging is it also happens to be unnecessary since most of the application work is done with fingers.
The formula is thin and not at all oily as the name would apply. It’s lightly hydrating and leaves behind a pretty, natural flush of color. I got the shade Crave which is a pretty pinkish coral on my cheeks. I wouldn’t say it firms or plumps up my skin but it does provide soft, natural color. I was worried this would have a dewy finish but it has a soft, silky set that feels more like a cheek stain than an oil. It does have a lavender fragrance for those who are sensitive you might want to take that into consideration. I felt like it wore as long as a cheek stain as I got at least 12 hours from it with absolutely no fading and it came off only when I removed it.
Note: Please excuse my puffy eyes in my photo! Bad allergies have my eyes looking all sorts of bad 🙁
It’s small and it’s expensive but I’d buy it again! I liked it. It blends easily, looks natural, and has plenty of color to give cheeks a nice flush!
