MILK Makeup’s debut mascara contains CBD, and it basically gives you the look of falsies
The hype around MILK Makeupâ€™s very first mascara release has been huge â€“ 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 â€“ 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 Iâ€™m clogging my pores with MILKâ€™s products â€“ in fact, it usually hardly feels like Iâ€™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 â€“ I was way too excited about this product.
Iâ€™ve honestly never found mascara that I like. Itâ€™s sad, I know. Most gals have a â€œchoice mascara,â€ but not this gal! Iâ€™ve never stuck with one brand, and I have always been determined to find a wand to stan.
At first glance, MILKâ€™s Kush Mascara is super sleek and cute, but super big. Thatâ€™s a heafty tube, people. The tree-shaped brush is thick, and the bristles are very close together â€“ 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, Iâ€™m a sucker for MILK, but I am a tough mascara critic. The CBD oil is meant to be conditioning and is included â€œfor thickness without the fallout,â€ according to MILK. This is the first thing I noticed. The CBD oil made this formula super thin, but gave me the thickest lashes Iâ€™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 itâ€™s much cheaper than a few pairs of falsies that wonâ€™t last.
The most important thing about this mascara is that it didnâ€™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, youâ€™re basically missing out. â€œEver 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 inâ€¦Kush Mascara is the vegan way to get major volume and healthier-looking lashes in one hit,â€ 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 wonâ€™t get you high â€“ but, it will give you insane volume.
