Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara

Iconic. Super popular. Not my favorite. Available at Sephora for CAD 32.  This gets you a lovely 10ml tube of product.  The packaging is stunning, same as all Milk Makeup products. In fact, I adore the packaging.  But, the packaging does not make the product.  The wand looks very much like so many others on the market.  The formula is fantastic for building length, not volume.   I found that this built up my lashes way less than the Urban Decay Perversion mascara.  The part where this product fails is the lasting power.  It flaked off on my cheeks and in my eyes (ow!), it smeared off.  Raccoon eyes were the order of the day.  Disappointing.  Powder, primer, the setting spray didn’t make this any match for warm weather.

As described on the Sephora website:

What it is:
A high-volume mascara with nourishing, hemp-derived cannabis seed oil, thickening heart-shaped fibers, and pure pigments for a clump-free, intense black finish.

What it does:
KUSH High Volume Mascara’s unique heart-shaped fibers lock onto lashes for long-lasting volume, length, and curl. Unlike gangly, cylindrical fibers that can appear spidery, these hollow, heart-shaped fibers lay on your lashes in each direction, creating the look of length and width. Conditioning, hemp-derived cannabis seed oil fuses to lashes for thickness without fallout, while also working to fill the hollow fibers with formula for a double dose of volume. Hemp-derived cannabis oil continues to hydrate for healthier-looking lashes, even after you’ve removed your mascara.

Wiggle the tapered, tree-shaped brush to hit every angle—the narrow top reaches the inner and outer corners and bottom lashes, while the fuller body takes care of the rest. The crisscrossed, soft, medium-firm bristles wrap and coat each lash for clump-free definition.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
KUSH Mascara is cruelty-free, paraben-free, vegan, gluten-free, fragrance-free, and silicone-free.

Why formulate with cannabis? Ever since its inception, Milk Makeup has wanted to create a product that showcases the amazing properties of hemp-derived cannabis seed oil. When they started talking about coming out with a fully vegan volumizing mascara with fibers, they knew they couldn’t use beeswax, a common binding component in mascara formulas. Enter: hemp-derived cannabis seed oil. Hemp-derived cannabis oil fuses the heart-shaped fibers to your lashes without fallout. It whips the formula into a creamy texture that allows for smoother application on lashes and an easier, tug-free removal. It also provides an additional conditioning benefit. KUSH Mascara is the vegan way to get major volume and healthier-looking lashes in one hit.
