Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the MILK MAKEUP Hydro Grip Primer.
This primer was a gift with purchase, but I’ve wanted to try it for a long time so I was very thrilled.
I was specifically looking for a primer to use all over the face to make my makeup last longer to combine with my Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer which I use to minimize pores mainly in the T-Zone.
You can buy it here for 34$
It’s pretty, I appreciate the pump as it disperses the right amount of product and it’s super hygienic.
It’s one of those that as you pump the bottom raises so you are sure to use every drop, which I love, all products should have this packaging.
EFFECT & TEXTURE
This primer feels like a gel, it doesn’t feel like a silicone product. It’s dry to the touch so I feel like it will work for normal to oily skin but it won’t keep you matt if you are really oily.
It doesn’t make the skin smoother but it plumps it up and once you massage it in it gets super sticky so the name is perfect.
Despite that, it doesn’t make the foundation patchy or peel, I really like it.
The best way to apply it is by dabbing it with your fingers.
It definitely makes my foundation last all day and it doesn’t break it apart.

I love this primer. After using it my skin looks plump and hydrated. I absolutely adore the packaging too. If you are looking for something to minimize your pores this isn’t it but if you want a product that will make your foundation last all day and hydrate your skin this will be your best friend. The lasting power is fantastic, my face makeup stays in place all day long and I don’t have to worry about it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
