The Milk Makeup Hydro Primer Is Worth It, But Here’s Why
You can purchase this primer here: MilkMakeup.com
This product is:
VEGAN, CRUELTY-FREE, TALC-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, SILICONE-FREE, PARABEN-FREE, FRAGRANCE-FREE, and OIL-FREE
Unlike other primers I’ve used in the past, this one did not dry my skin or cause oil on my T-Zone.
Honey, you know how importante that is!
My T-Zone is the only place I produce oil on my face, and normally that happens within 40 minutes. (ew no) However with this primer, I was able to wear my makeup for an hour without touch-up. (THANK YOU JESUS)
Take note though, everyone has a unique skin type and it varies with age. My forehead, cheeks, and rest of my body is naturally quite dry. So I was quite surprised to see that this primer didn’t dry out my skin!This primer did not break me out either, which is always a positive. I wore this under my foundation 3 times before this review to make sure it was actually working or not. (If you’re curious as to what type of foundation I used, it was matte) No faulty reviewing here!
The use of high-quality ingredients is also a big deal for me. If it isn’t for you, I feel sorry for the environment and your face in 20 years. (Okurrrrr)
The price is reasonable too compared to the other primers (like my favorite one which is $60. Woosh!).
When you apply it, the texture is semi-sticky. Most primers have a creamy texture, but this one is a gel.
It has a slight scent, which is very earthy. Some may not like that, I personally didn’t have a problem with it.
Not hydrating, but not drying either. It tends to dissipate within a matter of minutes.
This was quite possibly one of the hardest reviews to write. I have tried so many different primers, but the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip primer is by far the most unique of them all. Let’s start off with the consistency first: it’s a gel, not a cream. Most primers are some form of a cream or even a spray, but this gel stands out above the rest. It left me with confusion, but with a smile. A smile of confusion. It worked better than expected, left my face acne-free, non-greasy, the stickiness eventually left, and my makeup felt lightweight. While it didn’t moisturize areas that I needed, it didn’t dry me out either. Despite its name, “Hydro Grip Primer”, it’s more of a water based consistency but like I said earlier, not moisturizing (but not drying). I would highly recommend to apply moisturizer BEFORE the primer, and even add your favorite oil (I use Maracuja Oil) for added moisture. I like this, in fact this was so weirdly enjoyable I might purchase this once my complimentary one runs out. I definitely recommend buying this, but if you’re looking for extra moisture, either take the extra time to prep, or opt for a cream counterpart. Otherwise, I actually enjoyed this primer which made me wonder, “Is this the new, breakthrough primer of our generation?” I know it sounds crazy, but I’m not lying. This primer is oddly amazing, and even with its cons, I still love it. I’m looking forward to more products or gel primers in Milk Makeup’s future, and that’s a fact.
