MILK MAKEUP Blur Liquid Matte Foundation
Oil-free and silicone-free formula gives you flawless full coverage with a lightweight, serum-like feel.
Blurs pores and fine lines instantly with blurring microspheres, powder-filled spheres that diffuse the light and leave a smooooth, matte finish.
Innovative airless tip keeps foundation fresh and the color true — not to mention, it won’t leak all over your makeup bag.
Shake the tube, then dispense 1-2 drops onto fingers or the Dab + Blend Applicator and blend onto face. For normal to oily skin, prime with Blur Stick prior to application. For dry skin, prime with your favorite moisturizer, then apply Blur Liquid directly on top. For all skin types, finish and set with our 3-in-1 Blur Spray and you're good to go.

#Transfer - OMG the transfer is one of the worst I’ve ever experienced. Like, disastrous. No amount of setting powder, matte setting gel, or setting spray could keep it from coming off at the slightest touch.
#Oil - this is supposed to be a matte look. It is NOT. At all. I looked so shiny. It looks somewhat dewy at first, but then it turns I to a full on slip-and-slide Picasso reject on your face. (Warning: you will jump at the sight of yourself midway through the day). Also, after about a week of use, the actual liquid formula starts to change and separates in the bottle. All the sudden it was a mess of pure oil coming out of the tube and barely any color. Kind of like how mustard or ketchup separates if you don’t shake it up in the bottle. #GROSS
#Settling - ew, ew, ewwwwww. You better have baby smooth flawless skin to even attempt to look good with this on you for more than a couple hours. Blemishes? Fine lines? Pores? No primer can save you from this stuff. It settles in, makes itself at home, and turns into the 30 year old man child who you wish would pack up and leave. It’s BAD.
#Color - so this stuff looks amazing when you first apply it, but the color definitely changes (and I’m really fair skinned, so it goes from a true match to like yellowish which is not flattering) after a couple hours of wear.
With all the above issues, it was incredibly embarrassing for me to the point where I didn’t even want to be in public with this stuff on my face. And I went through multiple reviews and tutorials, so I know it was the product and not my application or skin.
I’m giving 2 stars because the packaging is adorable, the ingredients aren’t terrible (aka I wasn’t allergic to any of it which is rare for me — but also makes it more disappointing that it didn’t work out), and because it would probably be a phenomenal product to use for a quick photoshoot. If the formula was improved to do what it claims to do, I would try this foundation again. But until then, I’m returning it to #Sephora tomorrow and looking into something different.
Here are some things I found when using this foundation:
Texture - the actual texture of the foundation is thick but applies evenly. On my skin, it was extremely dry and clung to any texture I had.
Color - Ivory was a decent color match but was a bit too pink. I have a more yellow undertone but pink surface tones so I tend to go with more neutral shades. It seemed to oxidize a bit on my skin and ended up looking too pink/reddish.
Lasting Power - This lasted on my skin for a few hours before it started to slip and separate. It also settled into fine lines and would transfer even after setting it with a setting powder and setting spray.
I should note that I did have better results when I mixed this with cover FX custom cover drops and set using UD velvetizer. However, spending $40 on a foundation only to have to mix it to get it to work is not worth it in my opinion.
Now for the things I didn’t love. It does not have a long wear time, and tends to break up after only a few hours. I also found it to have a super dewy definitely not matte finish, which I didn’t mind in itself necessarily, but I did find that that made it extremely hard to set. I still had a lot of transfer after baking heavily with powder and using setting spray. Honestly though, I was already expecting to have some of these issues due to the absence of silicones. Have I found my holy grail foundation? Probably not, but I still think that Milk’s Blur Liquid is a great option to try for those who are acne prone and find that other foundations often break them out. This foundation is pretty much in a market of its own and definitely needs to be reviewed with the silicone free trade off in mind. There’s obviously a reason why there are so few foundations like this out there, and I LOVE Milk for taking on the challenge! MILK MAKEUP Blur Liquid Matte Foundation
It doesn’t stink, It’s oil and silicone free, and has a vegan formula. It really did let my skin breathe while I had it on. I was blessed with two of these samples so I used it twice and on both days I felt extra pretty. I loved this and I will look into buying it when I need more foundation. I’m also interested in more #MilkMakeup products now!
