Milk Makeup Lip & Cheek
Here’s another product I will soon be ordering. As you can see, I’m still using the sample. One thing I like about Birchbox samples is that they last a surprisingly long time!
This multi-tasking product is for both cheeks and lips. On my lips it is a luxurious lipstick that adds just the right touch of color (I have fair skin and the color I have is Perk). Its performance on my cheeks, however, is what really sold it to me.
I dab it on my cheeks, over my foundation, and smooth it out with my fingers. It responds instantly to the warmth of my skin and blends like a dream. If I want more color, I just dab on another layer. Afterwards, I put on powder to set it and I’m done unless I choose to add a powdered blush. The color is long-lasting, keeping me from having to reapply makeup halfway through the day.
Definitely a keeper!
Yes, I will buy it from Birchbox Referral Link.
I am seriously, genuinely, NOT a makeup maven. I don’t care about learning to contour, have only recently been told I’ve been applying my lipstick wrong forever, and (to be honest) usually go to bed without cleansing my face.
Yes. I know this is a bad thing.
All of this being true, but knowing I have a responsibility to the world to present a decent face, bearing in mind that I am not one to haunt the aisles of Sephora and Ulta (Yes, I know what they are.), I decided at some point last year to splurge on a Birchbox subscription. The thing has paid for itself many times over, and I’ve discovered some products I absolutely love.
So a new blog category is born: Not a Makeup Maven. At some point soon I’ll share about one of my newest favorites.
In the meantime, if you’re interested in seeing what Birchbox is all about – and don’t mind me sharing a link that will earn me credits to spend on goodies…
