I'm surprised there aren't a lot of reviews for this product. It's actually quite good, almost HG for me.
For the record I have oily to combo skin with yellow undertones. I have some hyper pigmentation, acne scars, and redness in some areas. I was deciding for the longest time on getting a high end foundation. It was a toss-up on getting the Fenty or this. The Fenty foundation sample I got was good, and kept me matte without separating too much. However, it started to look pretty cakey as the hours went by. After watching a video review from one of my favorite makeup gurus, I decided to try the Milk Blur foundation.
The shade I got is Medium Light, which is a good match for when I lose my summer tan. Be warned:The foundations are all kind of on the yellow side. The original price is $40, which is pretty darn pricey for a foundation with such cheap looking packaging. Luckily, I had a 20% off coupon so I wasn't too mad.
Although it claims to be matte, the foundation is more demi-matte and that's fine for me because the dry winter is coming up. There's a slight citrus smell to it which is quite unique for a foundation, but it quickly goes away. Texture-wise it is slightly watery. The coverage can range from medium to full and has a skin-like finish. A little goes a long way, so build small layers at a time until you get the coverage you want.
Now there was some trial and error when I first applied this foundation. If you don't properly exfoliate or moisturize your skin; this foundation WILL accentuate dry patches. I made the mistake of trying to over mattify my skin and it only made the texture look worse. Also PLEASE SHAKE THE BOTTLE BEFORE USING IT. The formula tends to separate, so it's important that you give it a good shake before you apply. Since this foundation is silicone-free and oil-free, I suggest you don't use a silicone/oil based primer otherwise it will start to separate. When I didn't use any primer, only moisturizer, it looked so much better than the first time I applied it. I tried using both a foundation brush and a damp beauty blender, and I find the beauty blender works the best to help fill in the pores. After baking with powder and using UD all nighter spray, it stayed in place for hours even as I went clubbing. I only had to blot once or twice.
-Skin-like finish. Made me look air-brushed.
-Light weight, which is surprising for a full coverage foundation
-Doesn't settle into lines
-No oxidizing as far as I can tell
-Great for multiple skin types
-Good for winter, since it's not drying
-Packaging, although cheap-looking, makes it easy to control the amount I want and is travel friendly
-Can accentuate dry patches if you don't prep your skin well
-Not compatible with silicone/oil based primers, since this is a water-based foundation. And honestly I don't think a primer is necessary since this already has a bit of a blurring effect. Baking with powder and setting spray made it last just fine.
-Not matte like it claims. Skin will still get oily, but not horribly so.
-Shade range could be better. The foundations run on the yellow side. Need more shades for really pale or really dark-skinned people.
-Probably not good for summer
Overall 4/5. I would re-purchase again, since it's the best foundation I used so far. However, that price can be a bit of a turn-off.
