As part of getting to know my collection, I want to spend more time reviewing all the products I have. Next up is everything I own from Milk Makeup, which happens to be their three Bionic liquid products. I wanted to thoroughly test these products to provide a more detailed review of them. I’ve gotten a ton of wear time out of them so if you have any questions I haven’t addressed, please ask in the comments. As always, thank you so much for being here, and it would mean so much to me if you subscribe here or on Instagram @liftbakelove for new posts!
Bionic Liquid Bronzer (Time Travel) – This is my favorite liquid bronzer I’ve ever tried. This builds up beautifully because it’s a bit sheer (I bit it up quite a bit in the swatch below) and looks so natural on me even if I accidentally build it up too much. Even though it’s sheer, the formula has some heft to it, which makes it much easier to control than I’m used to with liquid products. I love how I can get a precise application that still looks so healthy and skin-like.
The only other liquid bronzer I still have in my collection is the Daniel Sandler Watercolor Liquid Cheek Color in Sun Glow which is much thinner. The Daniel Sandler also has a good amount of shimmer in it whereas the Milk Bionic Liquid Bronzer is shimmer-free. I find the Milk bronzer way easier to use because it’s not watery at all, but it still blends so easily.
Bionic Liquid Blush (Infinity) – I’m surprised by how much I love this since liquid blushes aren’t usually my thing. It’s much gel like than any other liquid blush I’ve owned which makes it easy to blend without it going absolutely everywhere. It’s also fairly sheer so I never have to worry about overdoing it (which I do sometimes with my Rare Beauty liquid blush). It dries down in a way that feels like absolutely nothing is on my skin and has great staying power. The shade is also beautiful dusty rose that works really well for the kinds of looks I like to do.
My beloved Natasha Denona Puff Paint in Darya is more pink and more saturated, but the formulas are so similar once they’re on the skin (even though the Milk is a bit more gel-like and stays dewier). Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Bliss is the most pigmented of the three and is the most peachy-pink. It also dries down the least dewy of the three. That said, formula wise, these are all very similar to me, and I love having all three to have the shade variety.
Bionic Glow Illuminating Liquid Highlighter (Virtual) – This is a beautiful product that I can’t really explain because it just looks so nice. It dries down but still looks wet and glowy. My favorite way to use it is actually under any powder highlighters I want to use. It’s incredibly smoothing and blurring and just makes my skin look nice and hydrated. I like using it under powders because it totally gets rid of any texture and primes the cheek so well for any powder products to go on top smoothly. I’ve also used it a few times as my only makeup product, and I loved how it made my skin look. An important note – it’s quite pink and a bit dark, so keep that in mind if you are looking for a much more champagne highlighter.
It’s much less “highlightery” than the Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow, Auric Glow Lust, and the Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Luminizing Wand. If you’re looking for the most natural of all the glowy liquids, I would definitely go with the Milk Makeup. The Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Wand is the most impactful and bright. The Auric Glow Lust is by far the most glowy, beautiful, “I have the most hydrated skin” of the three and can be used so many ways. Compared to the other three, I actually don’t think the Lisa Eldridge really stands out, but I do think it’s one of the better ones of the bunch for mature or super dry skin because of its skincare ingredients. If I could only choose one, I think it’d still be the Glow Lust because it’s so versatile, but the Milk Makeup is just so pretty, especially for a no-makeup day.
