How cool would it be if when you went to Sephora to check out Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint, they handed you a milkshake just for showing up?
I would find that HIGHLY motivating, LOL! As if I need extra motivation to check out makeup…
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this trip I took once. I brought a tube of tinted moisturizer with me, but it exploded all over everything in my bag because the top came loose.
That probably wouldn’t have happened with Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint.
It has a pen clicker at the bottom. When you click it, the foundation comes up through the tube and out the roller ball applicator on the other end.
You use the roller ball to spread the tint all over your face, then blend it in with your fingers.
It’s fun AND cool. Plus, it’s very unlikely to leak foundation all over your stuff.
Milk Makeup is an American cruelty-free brand that’s been on the makeup scene about a year or two. As far as I know, their products don’t contain any actual milk, though. Unless you count coconut milk. The “milk” in the name refers to the fancy Milk photo studios, which they’re affiliated with.
Their marketing skews pretty young — teens and millennials — if you go by the models on the website, but even if you’re a lady or gent of a certain age, don’t let that stop you from trying Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30. I’m in my 40s and love it!
The genius thing about Sunshine Skin Tint to me is how it looks on my skin. I put it on, blend it out, and I swear — I can’t see it at all. Total no-makeup makeup. The finish is slightly shiny, but it doesn’t look oily, and I love the way my skin looks, fine lines, pores and all.
Because it’s a skin tint, yes, it isn’t full coverage, so don’t expect it to hide everything. But it hides just enough to appease me on most days. I’d say the coverage is comparable to Neutrogena’s Skin Tint (which I also love, by the way), but it has a dewier finish.
Sunshine Skin Tint makes for perfect “vacation skin” — dewy, even-toned skin that doesn’t look like it’s wearing a makeup mask.
Sephora currently carries the line in all eight shades — Fair (fair with pink undertones), Light (light with yellow undertones), Sand (light to medium with peach undertones), Medium (medium with neutral undertones), Honey (medium with warm undertones), Medium Tan (medium to tan with golden undertones), Tan (tan with golden undertones) and Deep (deep with warm undertones).
I’m a MAC NC42. My skin is pretty tan with golden undertones, and I’m somewhere between the shades Honey and Medium Tan. Honey by itself is a bit too light, and the Medium Tan shade is a touch too dark, so I’m mixing the two…which I know is overly high-maintenance, but that’s how I roll when it comes to face products. Forever cocktail-ing my own colors!
FYI, I’ve heard that these foundations can oxidize on some peeps, but I haven’t had that issue. Both Honey and Medium Tan stay pretty true on my combo skin, which, by the way, is oily on my forehead and nose, but dry everywhere else.
The flight to Oahu next week will be the Coywolf’s first time flying, and I’m REALLY hoping that the altitude won’t bother her little baby ears (El Hub had pretty serious ear problems when he was a kid). I’m planning to give her a bottle during takeoff and landing, and to bring some new toys. I’m also loading my phone with a few episodes of Sesame Street, which she loves, to hopefully give her something to distract herself with if she gets uncomfortable.
Have you ever flown with a toddler before? Any suggestions? What was it like?
