05 Oct LET’S NOT BEAT AROUND THE KUSH.
Being back in America, the CBD (cannabidiol) craze is real. So you can imagine the California girl in me was highly excited to try this line that Milk came out with (pun intended). Mascara and brow gel mixed with cannabis oil? You know I’m down.
The reason for the switch to using KUSH fiber is because MILK as a brand is now 100% vegan and cruelty free so using beeswax to bind the fibers to lashes was no longer an option for them. CBD oil, although hasn’t been tested for long term effects on skincare, does wonders on conditioning and nourishing the skin.
MILK rolled out the KUSH High Volume Mascara ($12) first. This is the second mascara from the brand. The first one got me excited because the wand was similar to one of my favorites, Fairydrop, but disappointed me in overall performance. So with that, I decided to buy the mini version before making the commitment. The wand is visibly different it’s now a tapered thick bristled wand compared to the triple ball type of wand. During my initial application, I was really pleased that the mascara coated my lashes lightly. It wasn’t clumpy and it layered beautifully. My lashes didn’t look spidery. It gave a very natural soft lift, which I love in mascaras.
The KUSH Brow Gel ($18) was something I’d been eyeing for a while but had no reason to get them until my current brow gel ran out. I got the shade Grind at first but when I tried it out, it was way too dark for me so I switched to Dutch. The wand was no different from your typical brow brush and it wasn’t a mind blowing formula but I really liked how natural it made my brows look.
Overall the CBD in both the mascara and brow gel formulas really makes the fibers soft and subtle looking. I would go for that over stiff and clumpy any day.
