What Milk Makeup Says About Kush Lip Glaze

Milk Makeup Kush Lip Glaze

Plant-derived oil provides a surge of hydration overnight so you wake up with smoother lips. Shea, cocoa, and mango butters coat and instantly absorb to soften lips and improve texture. Antioxidant-rich jojoba and olive oils help protect against free radicals + environmental stressors, provide anti-inflammatory benefits, and naturally tint the formula so it goes on green but blends in clear. Liquid formula locks in hydration with a high shine barrier to prevent moisture loss. Sage extract and peppermint oil combine for a subtle, natural flavor.

  • Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil: Hydrates and calms skin.
  • Jojoba Oil: Hydrates skin.
  • Moringa Butter: Soothes and calms skin.

Milk Makeup Kush Lip Glaze Review

My Milk Makeup addiction started slowly. A product here, a product there. I don’t know when or how it bloomed into a full-blown obsession, but sometime in the past 6 months it happened. No regrets!

I first tried the Milk Makeup Kush Lip Glaze as an overnight treatment. Upon immediate application, I feel drenched in a lasting hydration. There’s the slightest, sweet taste of peppermint and what I’m guessing is the sage. In the morning, I wake up with plump, hydrated lips.  After a month of use, my lips were definitely in better shape.

One of the problems I run into with most lip balms, usually the types in stick form, is that after a week or month of use it’s like that product ends up actually making my dry lips more dry, rather than leaving them with lasting moisture. Not Milk Makeup Kush Lip Glaze!

Ray & Dave observed my nightly ritual of smearing the slightly sweet but never sticky salve on my lips and tried it as well. They both decided they liked it enough that they asked me to buy some for them, so I bought them each their own tube and an extra tube for my purse. My entire household is now hooked on the Kush Lip Glaze.

The Milk Kush Lip Glaze also works as a moisturizing gloss if you want to wear a clear gloss or put it on top of other lip products to add shine. It’s not sticky in the slightest, which I appreciate. I hate sticky gloss that I get my hair stuck in.

If you really want to have lips to kill, use a fine-grain sugar scrub (my favorite is the Rebels & Outlaws Kiss For Luck Smoothing Lip Scrub) first to get rid of any dry patches, then follow up with the Milk Makeup Kush Lip Glaze.

This hydrating lip treatment has hemp-derived cannabis oil and squalane in it, which are both known to help soothe stressed out skin like my lips. And no, it won’t get you high. There’s no THC in it. Because I have anxiety disorder, I’m prone to chewing on my lips, and that leads to them being dry and chapped. The Milk Makeup Kush Lip Glaze helps prevent chapping from my champing.

If you’re looking for an excellent lip product that is part lip treatment, part lip gloss, you need to try the Milk Makeup Kush Lip Glaze. I’m thoroughly smitten with it! What’s your current lip obsession?

  • I really want to try this one…I’ve been obsessed with MILK lately. Their products are really fabulous.

  • This sounds amazing! I also get peeling from lip balms. It is the beeswax. Jojoba can also cause peeling for me. I tend to go with a lip gloss for hydration, but the formula on this sounds similar!

  • Medicated original carmex is my favorite overnight fix for dry lips. I might try milk one sometime though since you say not sticky. Loved the fresh face photos, so pretty, as always.

    • Carmex is the one that after using it a month, it made my lips peel off. No idea why either. Then I was using Skinfix, then Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I thought the Flower Beauty Lip Masks were great but after 2 weeks they started making me dry out. So I was so happy that Milk Kush Lip Glaze didn’t do that to me.
