Mascara Monday – Milk Makeup Kush Mascara

I saw this new mascara on Sephora a couple of weeks ago and thought that this would be a cool mascara to review for my Mascara Monday!

What did I try today?

Milk Makeup’s Kush Mascara in Black.  I saw this mascara on, and this is where I purchased my product.  It was highly rated (still is) and new.  Of course, I was intrigued.  I didn’t really read anything more about it (easy sell) and had it shipped to my house.


After doing some research on and, I found that this mascara is completely Vegan.  Some mascaras use beeswax as a binding component for lashes, but this product uses CBD-rich cannabis oil to hydrate and provide volume.

This mascara retails for $24.

What it is supposed to do

The volume also comes from hollow heart-shaped fibers to lengthen and build.  It claims to not have fall-out via  Big volume is the name of the game for this mascara.

The Wand

I’m obsessed with this wand.  I love a good bristle brush that is thick and doesn’t clump.  It gets into every lash and I can build, rebuild and build again without a mess.  The wand is an A+ for me!

Application and Formula

I applied this in the morning with my regular makeup application and wore it throughout the day (12+ hours).  It applied great with no clumping or fall out during application.  The formula was thicker (not runny at all) and gave great volume and curl.  I applied two coats and that was good for the day.

Real Life Wear

Here’s where it gets a little tricky.  It moves.  It isn’t bad, but if we are doing a mascara Monday – we have to be real.  It does fall below the eyes and flakes.  I wouldn’t say its terrible, but you could see where it did come off some during the day.  I did reapply it this evening and it was super easy to reapply over already dried mascara.  I usually have a hard time reapplying mascara after I’ve worn it for a while.  I wouldn’t say this is long-lasting.   It’s good, but it does move.


This mascara is super easy to remove.  I removed it with my Jordan Samuel Aftershow Treatment Cleanser and then double cleansed with my IS Clinical Cleanser.  It was a breeze to remove.

Overall Thoughts

I’m loving this wand.  It is a good mascara.  I will need to wear it more to see how it does, but overall, pretty good.  If I had to give it a star rating, I would probably give this 4/5 stars.  The transfer of the mascara under the eyes was pretty significant, so that was a bummer.  Other than that, not too bad!

Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
