Filipino beauty brand blk cosmetics is starting the year right by rolling out a five-piece expansive collection! Dubbed "Universal 3.0" the line also includes blk’s take on sunscreen sticks, a fast-rising skincare item that beauty gurus have been raving about on social media platforms.
Amping up its version, blk’s Sheer Sunscreen Primer Stick is a sunscreen and primer hybrid in one "ultra-comfy" stick.
According to the brand, it provides "invisible sun protection and a makeup-gripping base with this ultra-comfy stick featuring a sheer, mattifying formula—no chalky cast, no oily sheen."
It is also claimed to be sweat-proof, waterproof, and foolproof, meaning zero blending is required! Made with SPF 40 UVA/UVB PA++++, this sun stick-primer shields the skin from sun damage while improving skin texture and "enhancing the look and wear of your makeup."
No greasiness or white cast, it visibly improves skin texture and minimizes pores while providing a matte finish that creates the perfect base for makeup.
The lightweight balm feels silky and has no scent, making it perfect for sensitive skin! To use, apply the sun stick-primer to cleansed skin and blend well up to the corners of the face and around the nose and mouth.
blk Sheer Sunscreen Primer Stick is available online and in stores for P549/15g.
Aside from the sun stick-primer, blk also unveiled new multi-use and universally-flattering Color Sticks (P449); the Brow Lock Sculpting Wax (P349); the Do Everything Superbalm (P379); and new shade additions for its cult-classic Skin Tint (P499).
