Best Foundation for Oily / Combo Skin?


So recently I went down to Ala Moana Shopping Center, which is in Honolulu and I barely ever get out there because its pretty far from my house and there is always traffic down in Honolulu. I woke up super early for no reason and I decided to drive down there and check the mall out. It’s a huge mall with plenty of stores that aren’t available to me at the stores that are closer to me.



I ended up getting the new Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation in the shade Medium. I was so excited to check it out because Tati (Glam Life Guru) reviewed it on her channel a few days ago saying that it was a big hit because of the coverage and the matte finish. I haven’t personally tried anything from Milk Makeup because I thought their things were a gimmick because of their packaging and their products being weird. Like I’ve said many times here, I have combination skin – I am oily in my T zone and normal everywhere else so finding a foundation to work with my skin is tough sometimes.

Okay, so heres the run down of the foundation. This product retails for $40 USD with 1 ounce which is standard for foundations and has full coverage.


Claims: Designed to make applying and wearing foundation easy, Blur Liquid Matte Foundation offers flawless full coverage at first swipe, leaving a smooth matte finish that looks and feels as light as air. Like Milk’s Blur Stick and Blur Spray, Blur Liquid Matte Foundation instantly minimizes the appearance of pores and imperfections using blurring microspheres, tiny powder-filled spheres that diffuse the light to leave a flawless, soft focus effect.

To keep the lightweight, water-based formula safe, Blur Liquid features an innovative airless tip to minimize air exposure and eliminate dripping—allowing your foundation to stay fresh, the color stay true, and all of it to stay inside the package, not dripping all over your bag.


My thoughts? I agree that this foundation is very high coverage. One little drop of this foundation gets the job done which is rare for me because if I do wear foundation to work I want to to have lots of coverage. I also really like how the foundation comes in a squeezey tube form I feel like its handy to throw in your bag and it looks great on my dresser. I do feel like if you want to sheer the coverage that you can use a sponge but I must prefer a brush with the foundation because of the formula. The foundation is very easy to apply and blend, it blended on the skin so effortlessly and flawlessly. Upon my first application the foundation was super lightweight and I couldn’t feel it on the skin throughout the day which I love because who wants to feel like they’re wearing a mask? Over the course of me trying this out, I noticed that my pores were very blurred out and my T zone didn’t get oily like it normally does. I did notice that this foundation can cake around the nose area if you put on too much and that it doesn’t play nicely with mattifying primers so I am still trying to find what I can use on my nose as a primer. The foundation does oxidize a tad bit which actually doesn’t bother me because its not too noticeable. I really do like this foundation a lot it wore all day and was perfect. I did get a bunch of compliments and people asking me about the foundation which I was very pleased about because that lets me know that its a good foundation!

Would I repurchase? I would repurchase this when the time comes which isn’t going to be for a long time because one drop of this foundation and you’re set to go. I feel like I will be wearing this a lot for school because its a quick application. I would definitely recommend this to my oily girls out there who need some coverage because this foundation is the BOMB! Also, it smells like oranges!! They also have about 16 shades in this line right now which could definitely be improved but the have some deep colors so everyone could try this foundation!




Okay, so I am sooo dumb and never took any pictures of me actually wearing the foundation but I know I did some snapchats about it. Best believe I was checking on it throughout the day and taking photos when I got home from a long day at work. I just wish that my store sold the Milk Makeup line so I could tell my clients about it and get some gratis haha!


What have you heard about this foundation? Have you tried it before? Let me know your thoughts!
