THE HYPE

In case you haven't heard, Milk Makeup has *finally* landed in the UK, and if you're a fan of fast, flawless makeup (um, who isn't?) then you'll be instantly obsessed with Milk's easy-to-use multi-tasking makeup sticks, which are also entirely vegan.

Ranging from the everyday essentials including a Matte Bronzer and Lip Color, to the fabulous and fun including their Tattoo Stamps and Kush range, Milk really does seem to have something for everyone.

Here, we take a look at some of the hero products from the long-awaited range and offer our honest review.

THE REVIEWER

THE PRODUCT

Matte Bronzer Stick
It's rare that a matte bronzer comes in a cream format and I'm initially dubious as to whether it will deliver. Much to my delight, the bronzer glides on to skin and blends beautifully, able to diffuse into the lightest sun-kissed glow, or be built up into a dreamy, deep tan. The finish is matte, but not powdery as you may expect - there's still a distinct realness to the skin even when layered up. Plus, it seems to have a blurring effect, reducing the appearance of open pores, which comes as a welcome surprise.

Lip Color in O.G. Red
I'm very much go hard or go home when it comes to lipstick. Either, I want full pelt, punchy pigments or else I want a true-to-skin balm. Lip Color is the former with the pigment providing an instant and impressive red that's creamy and comfortable with the impact of a matte formula.

Flex Concealer
Available in a commendable range of shades, this concealer is the ultimate go-to for every type of blemish, whether you want to cover under-eye bags or conceal a breakout. It's easy to blend when freshly applied, but sets to provide budge-proof coverage. And it's got that magical blur to it, too, which is always a good thing.

Tattoo Stamp
Perhaps my favourite product in the whole range, these stamps are playful, punky and pretty all at the same time. Essentially, it's an eyeliner formula in a stamp format, available in an array of designs including a crescent moon, an X, a star and a heart. Top tip: apply a setting powder before stamping to keep a sharp outline.

Kush High Volume Mascara
I'm always looking for that fluttery lash look that looks both soft and impactful, separating each lash while lengthening. Kush Mascara does exactly that, and can even be layered on later without any signs of clumping. Plus, the Kush (i.e. cannabis oil) is great for lashes apparently, helping them to grow.

Lit
This aptly named highlighter is all you'll ever need for an everyday, believable glow. Creamy but not oily, it can be applied to bare skin or on top of fully-loaded skin and it will appear equally radiant.
