Showdown: Benefit Liquid Foundation vs. Milk Flex Stick Foundation
I’ve always been curious about stick foundation--it wasn’t really something I ever used growing up or in my early makeup days. Truth be told, this Milk Flex Foundation in Medium with neutral peach undertones is the first foundation stick I’ve ever tried (that sounds crazy, right?), while the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Liquid Foundation in Beige is one I’ve had for a really long time.
Right off the bat, the reason I wanted to share a comparison of these two is because I know there are two types of makeup lovers out there who favor either the natural effect or otherwise, the done-up, glam effect. I made sure to not edit or filter these photos at all so that you get the full impact of the comparison!
Clearly, the stick foundation left me with a fuller coverage, but I also am drawn to liquid foundation on days where I don’t want to look like I’ve tried too hard with my makeup. Even with the simple swatch on my lower jawline, you can tell that the Benefit Hello! Flawless doesn’t stand out too much while the Milk Flex Stick really does.
Too, I’d say the Milk Flex Stick has a pretty matte effect and can work for individuals who tend to get oily throughout the day (me, lol).
All in all, it comes down to what you prefer your makeup to do for you. Do you look to your makeup to transform yourself into a glam goddess? (choose the Milk Makeup Flex Stick) Or just to simply do a quick fix? (choose the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow)
