Review:  Towards the end of 2018, I ventured on to more cream products specifically due to the change of weather and one of them is bronzer sticks.  I have heard many good things about Milk Makeup in general so I decided to pick this one up during the fall Sephora VIB Sale.  This is my first purchase from Milk Makeup.  The packaging is very simple, it reminds me of E.L.F.'s highlighting stick from back in the day only this one is much more massive.  It comes in a clear plastic packaging with the shade color on top.  The actual tube is a twist up container and a clear cap that you also twist to open and close.  I have the darkest shade of the two available and I use it to bronze and contour.  This is a beautiful cream bronzer with a matte finish.  It is applies and blends effortlessly.  It is long wearing and give a natural warmth to the skin.  I know Milk Makeup uses a lot of natural ingredients so it does smell "earthy" but not as strong as the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Powder (which I returned because of the smell, the finish is beautiful though).  I recommend this product especially if you prefer a natural finish.  If you want an affordable alternative, the Wet N Wild Contour/Bronzer sticks are amazing (I own those as well and it is one of my favorite drugstore products).
