MILK Makeup’s debut mascara contains CBD, and it basically gives you the look of falsies
The hype around MILK Makeup’s very first mascara release has been huge – because, duh.
MILK is a cult-favorite beauty brand for a reason (the reason being that all of their products are amazing), so when they announced they would be releasing a CBD-enriched mascara to add to their collection, I knew I had to get my hands on the product.
Let me preface this by saying I truly am a huge MILK Makeup fan. When I was younger, I used to clot my face with thick, over-priced makeup that made me look like a banshee (I had terrible acne and was overcompensating). When I realized the damage all of this junk was doing to my skin, I kind of stopped using makeup overall – unless I went out.
Heavy makeup is a nightmare for your skin and also a nightmare to take off at night. When beauty brands like MILK Makeup started coming about, I felt like there was hope for the future of makeup. MILK has for sure given me a new love for makeup, because of how light all of their products are.
I never feel like I’m clogging my pores with MILK’s products – in fact, it usually hardly feels like I’m wearing any makeup at all. And after all, I want to enhance my features, not cover them up! MILK helped me really love my skin and treat it well, and now I want to show off my face rather than hide it.
So again, of course, when they released their mascara, I knew I wanted to test it out. Especially since I am all about CBD being used in skincare – I was way too excited about this product.
I’ve honestly never found mascara that I like. It’s sad, I know. Most gals have a “choice mascara,” but not this gal! I’ve never stuck with one brand, and I have always been determined to find a wand to stan.
At first glance, MILK’s Kush Mascara is super sleek and cute, but super big. That’s a heafty tube, people. The tree-shaped brush is thick, and the bristles are very close together – this is something I look for in a wand, mainly because I like to separate my lashes and get that big volume effect.
I fell in love with the Kush Mascara the first time I tried it. Yes, I’m a sucker for MILK, but I am a tough mascara critic. The CBD oil is meant to be conditioning and is included “for thickness without the fallout,” according to MILK. This is the first thing I noticed. The CBD oil made this formula super thin, but gave me the thickest lashes I’ve ever achieved with just mascara. My lashes also felt hydrated and I wore this stuff all night with no crustiness or fallout.
This mascara is also meant to curl and lengthen, which I definitely noticed. My lashes seriously resembled falsies. Imagine saving your falsies money to spend other things? This mascara is only $24, so it’s much cheaper than a few pairs of falsies that won’t last.
The most important thing about this mascara is that it didn’t clump when I added more layers. I like to do about 3-4 layers when using mascara, and the Kush Mascara went on super smooth.
Now, if you have an issue with CBD, you’re basically missing out. “Ever since the inception of Milk Makeup, we wanted to create a product that provides the amazing properties of cannabis. When we started talking about coming out with vegan mascara, we knew we couldn’t use beeswax, a common binding component in mascara formulas. That’s where cannabis oil comes in…Kush Mascara is the vegan way to get major volume and healthier-looking lashes in one hit,” says MILK on their reasoning behind a CBD-infused mascara.
The other plusses? This product is vegan, talc-free, and cruelty-free. And yes, it’s available at Sephora, too!
And no, this mascara won’t get you high – but, it will give you insane volume.
