KUSH High Volume Mascara
1.0
Created with Sketch.
from

a month ago

Upon first application, I was loving the soft, fluttery, million lash look. Well, that lasted about an hour before everything went downhill. It flaked like no other mascara I've ever used. This formula is a fiber mascara that boasts that it is infused with cannabis. Not sure how cannabis can improve a mascara, but its in there. The fibers are supposed to be heart shaped, but I suspect those fibers where flaking in my eyes every time I blinked. My eyes were so irritated by this mascara formula, I used nearly half a bottle of eye drops to relieve the irritation. I bet I looked like I was smoking cannabis. To give this mascara a better chance, I thought I could make it work and applied it for the next 4 days, hoping for different results. Nope, no, nada, no way. And now, lets talk about trying to remove this product--it was like trying to remove black tar--what a sticky, pitiful mess that was. So, either this substance comes off, flake by flake into your eyeball or you look like you've been making mud pies in a tar pit! If I could rate this as a zero lippie, I would. Use this mascara at your own peril.

I received this in "Werk" as part of Sephora's birthday gift. Hopefully this review helps others when deciding which birthday set to choose. The main reason why this is a miss for me is the smell....like a terrible burning plastic smell that is particularly strong upon application and for a few minutes after. Like, I want to wipe it off my lips, it's so bad! Definitely skip if you're sensitive to smells (as I am). The chubby stick makes it rather awkward to apply to lips so I definitely need a mirror for application. Haven't tried it as a blush and honestly probably won't but I do think this color is likely pretty wearable as a lippie or blush on a wide range of people but honestly I find it very meh as nude lipsticks go. I'd describe it as a dusty pinky shade with a bit of coral fairly balanced between warm and cool. This is also how I'd describe my HG nude lipstick (Nars Audacious in Apolene) but the Milk color and formula both fall well short of competing. The smell alone has me ready to chuck it in the bin after 2 uses. Glad this one was a freebie.

Milk Blur Matte Foundation

The Milk foundation was a game changer for my blemish-prone skin. I’ve never found a foundation that lets my skin breathe until I tried this one. It is formulated without common cosmetic ingredients such as copolymers, carbomers, and silicones that have a “slicking” function on the skin but can trap bacteria, sebum, sweat, etc in pores and hair follicles leading to acne. Fantastic coverage w/ a light feel...never heavy or greasy. I can’t say enough about how lovely this product is...simply stellar.
