When Milk Makeup’s new primer, the Blur Stick, came out, makeup lovers went crazy. Not only is the product innovative, but also claimed to be the perfect primer for all skin tones. No ashiness, no weird cast, no oil, no parabens, and no silicone either. When I heard about it, I thought it was too good to be true. “There’s no way that something could be that good, and be perfect for everyone. No way,” I thought to myself. I also was scared away by the $36 price tag– $36?! For a primer?! There must be something special about it. Popular beauty YouTubers like, KathleenLights and Jackie Aina, posted videos with rave reviews. A few weeks later, I bit the bullet and decided to buy the Blur Stick at Sephora.
After using the Blur Stick since March, I can confidently say that I love this product. If you use it right, it can truly do wonders for the skin under makeup. Here’s why:
It makes your skin look soooooo good!
As this Allure article states, the Blur Stick is definitely a “snapchat filter for your face.” Large pores and rough skin are still there, but are noticeably smaller in size and smoother in texture. After application, skin looks refined and less oily. What I like the most about this product is that it is not drying at all. And even with it’s matte finish, it definitely doesn’t make the skin look too flat or dried out.
