Milk Makeup Blur Stick Primer Review

Ahhhh! I'm always so super excited to try new make-up brands, and Milk Makeup is one of them! I was happy to see Milk Makeup being offered through Influenster and that I was chosen to review it! If you don't know what Influenster is yet; 
Influenster is a community of over 1.5 million social savvy shoppers that:

There are times where they will choose you based on how many badges you earn, and how you answer the pre-survey questionnaire, but that may also vary on the type of consumer they are looking for, for the specific product in question.

I've received many awesome products ranging from make-up, skincare, and lifestyle! Don't miss out on your chance to review free stuff too!

So what exactly is the Blur Stick? It's a colourless mattifying solid primer stick that helps blur your pores and primes your face. It's paraben-free, and silicone free, and blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines, providing a matte and smooth finish. It also doesn't clog your pores!

I love primers and I'm always excited to try ones that could really help the longevity of my make-up. I work long 12+ hour days, and I need my make-up to look good from morning til night. The product does a wondeful job making my pores non-existent, so it definitely does the job in that department! I have really large pores and that helped with making them disappear, so I was happy about that. Longevity though? My oily face was shining like a disco ball by the 6 hour mark. I did though, find a concoction of primers along with this blur stick, that truly helped my make-up last for 8+ hours though!! 

First, I used the blur stick mainly on my t-zone area, focusing to the areas around my nose. Then I use the Smashbox Hydrating Primer (which looks like isn't carried at Sephora anymore, so I hope isn't discontinued) around the rest of my face where it normally gets dry. Next, I use the Smashbox Photofinish Primer to apply on my nose, and a little on my cheeks on top of the Milk Makeup Blur Stick. Then I apply my foundation, concealer, etc. I know, it sounds like a lot of stuff on my face, but it truly holds my make-up for 10+ hours. On their own, each individual product is good, but not the best. Working together, I've never seen my face look so good after a long work day. There is some oil peeking through by the end of the night, but I literally do not have to blot my face at all during the day. My face looks pretty good and I could go out if I really wanted to after work, with no touch ups! Realistically I wouldn't, because I'm pretty much dead after my 12 hour shifts. 

Do you have any interesting concoctions to make your make-up last? Let me know! 

Check out Milk Makeup at Sephora, and also get cash back on your purchases from Ebates as well. The amount of money I got back from Black Friday shopping was pretty awesome. All the stores I wanted to shop for were offered on Ebates so it's always good to check!!

I received this product for free, complimentary from Influenster.
