My actual tube of this primer refers to it as Milk Makeup Luminous Blur Stick so perhaps it was discounted because Milk was changing the name? Who knows, but I did have my eyes on it for quite some time.
The Milk Makeup Blur Stick is silicone-free, oil-free, and has a matte finish. I love all of the above factors and also love that it has a bronze-y shimmer, so I was definitely curious to see how it performed on my normal to oily skin.
The best part about the Milk Makeup Blur Stick is the twist up applicator. It feels like I’m scribbling an oversized glue stick over my face and I like it.
As much as I enjoy applying the stick as my primer, I find that I don’t get the best oil absorbing results. It’s just okay. I’ve also been using the Veil Cosmetics Automatte and let me tell you, that stuff’s serious oil controlling business. The Veil Cosmetics product does contain silicones, so if you’re sensitive it might be an issue.
My Final Thoughts: The Milk Makeup Blur Stick has a great concept, but ultimately doesn’t get the long wearing, oil controlling job done.
