    Milk Makeup - Hydro Grip Primer

    Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer Reviews

    I actually love this primer
    I have combination skin (usually a fun mix of oily acne with dry patches) but this primer makes my skin look great and my makeup goes on beautifully. It’s tacky so your makeup grips and stays put for ages. I’ll be getting the full size soon!
    The best primer I've used
    Honestly the best primer I've used on my acne prone and slightly oily skin! Grips onto makeup and the skin amazingly!
    I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the full size bottle having read so many good reviews. I have acne so it's always a challenge to find suitable makeup. Unfortunately, my skin broke out worse than it ever has before and my makeup literally slid off my face after a very short time. I'm really disappointed as I had high hopes but never mind.
    I don't have great experiences with primer but this is amazing! I have incredibly dry skin and this not only kept my make up on but I had no dry patches! It is a little thick but I found it easy to blend out! Don't think just buy!
    This is honestly the best primer for my skin! I have oily skin, and I have tried multiple mattifying primer to try and control the shine. But my makeup always end up piling. I do get shine with this, but it’s honestly not much and totally understandable. I cried once, and my makeup stayed like a bitch you couldn’t get rid of, it’s the best.
    It's ok, but it's not what I was expecting with all the rave reviews I've seen.
    First few times I used it, with various foundations - I thought it was terrible. I then worked out how to apply it. It needs to be applied thinly and really work to buff it in, in small areas at a time as it sets so quickly - then let it sit for a while. If not buffed in - it just sits on top of texture and pores and foundation settles badly. And if applied too thickly or not in small areas at a time - it also has a tendency to peel when applying foundation or when trying to spread it once it's set a bit. If applied correctly, it doesn't have these negative effects. But I still get better results texture and pores wise from my usual poreless putty primer which is a lot cheaper. Plus I already use a radiant foundation too, so I don't need a super hydrating primer. I doubt I'll repurchase, but I will be trying it again in the future when I get a thicker consistency foundation as I have a feeling this might fare better then.
    Mixed thoughts
    I liked it at first it kept my makeup on all day and kept me matte I thought it would be my new favourite but as I kept using it, it started to pill up under my foundation/concealer and started to break apart my makeup as soon as I had put it on! I used the same base products and applied it the same with my fingers? I wanted to love this but it just doesn’t love me.
    Really Good primer if you want your make up to last. Make sure it’s evenly spread and if you have an oily nose like I do then don’t put on your nose because it makes the pores stand out a lot. Will be buying again :)
    Smooth & Sticky
    Sticky in a good way! Makeup didn't budge when using this and it smoothes out the look of pores.
    Perfect primer
    This product is great my makeup stays on at last!!
    Actually exaggerates rough spots instead of smoothing
    This primer makes foundation cling to areas around rough patches, making them stand out even more. Haven't noticed any improvement in how long my makeup lasts.
    It’s Rubbish
    It gets lumpy and the product rolls off my face. I’ve tried it and the asked other people and they have mixed reviews. Some love it and some it doesn’t work for them. I am lucky I only bought the tester. It’s so rubbish please don’t waste your time.
    Did not work for me
    I have been wanting to try this forever but it was very disappointing. I have heard very good things about it, and I now have tried it multiple times I even did half of my face with and half without and it just makes my makeup look worse. It clings in spots and does not blend. You can see where the line is where the products end. I would not recommend this for any skin type.
    oh my good this is my new favourite primer, I am absolutely obsessed and can’t wait to get my hands on more!
    Awful awful awful
    Used it with my fail-safe foundation and it caused it not to dry. My eye watered the tiniest bit and it took the foundation off in chunks, looked absolutely awful would not recommend to anyone, doesn’t grip at all causes my foundation to slip around and literally slide off my face. Wore on a night out and ruined my night as couldn’t even touch it up without it piling and making it worse!
    Amazing Product - Believe the Hype
    I have very dry skin and sometimes suffer with eczema / sensitive skin on my face. I think I came across this product when Robert Welsh recommended it several times on his YouTube channel. It was out of stock for ages so when it returned to Cult Beauty I decided to buy the larger size despite never trying it.... I'm so glad I did! This is now a holy grail product of mine. I use 2 pumps for my face and my foundation sits lovely when applied. Some people suggest patting it in but I have had no issues with gently spreading it. On average I wear my foundation for 10 hours and since using this primer it hasn't cracked, flaked or rubbed away. It has a sticky texture and pleasent smell. I will definitly repurchase
    Definitely Worth It!
    Amazing product! It has a great gripping formula to prep your base with.
    Best primer ever!
    I have been searching for the best primer for combination skin. At first, I was hesitant that the primer would be too oily or sticky and would not control any oils. However, it has been amazing! It leaves a great smooth texture on the skin that foundation and base products grip onto all day! I also read the reviews saying that the product balls up, I did not find that this was the case. I simply put on a small amount and do not excessively rub it in, I tap it into the skin. I have used a lot of primers such as Fenty/YSL/Channel and this is the best yet!
    a primer i can actually feel
    I'm often sceptical of primers and what they do, but I love this stuff. The tackiness I'm looking for is present when it goes on, and every time I've worn my foundations with it, I have noticed a greater staying power and less breaking up on the nose.
    Best primer I have ever used!
    You need this
    I have normal/dry skin but my make does not stay on now we’re having to wear a mask most of the time. I got the small bottle of this for my bday in 6 weeks and I AM DESPERATE TO REPLENISH. My makeup does not move. I’ve never received so many compliments on my makeup. This is so hard to find at the moment so go straight in for the big bottle, you will not regret it. I promise
    Best primer
    I’ve tried a lot of primers but this one is other level amazing. When it says it’s a grip primer it literally makes putting your make up on a dream and holds it in place all day. Worth the money.
    Milk Hydrogrip
    Absolutely love this primer, so tacky and hydrating. I have oily skin and it doesn’t worsen the oils but still leaves MY skin plump and hydrated. LOVE
    Good primer but would I buy it again? Prob not
    Don’t get me wrong this is a good primer. However, my makeup does still transfer when I wear a mask and I don’t see a HUGE difference between when I do and don’t wear it. Its essentially not a must in my makeup routine and, would I leave the house forgetting to use it, probably. I still like it and will continue to use it but it’s not my holy grail primer and I’m not going to repurchase honestly.
    I stole from my friend and I'm glad I did
    Well, I stole her birthday present I technically bought so ??? I was feeling jealous and HAD to try, I'm so glad I did. It's sticky, so grips (hence the name) so well but also smooths amazingly for a perfect base. My foundation glides on after this and helps my makeup stay under my mask so well!
    Great primer!
    Love this primer, applies to the skin so smoothly. Leave it to completely dry and then make up stays on all day!
    What is this?
    I don’t understand all the amazing reviews. I was so excited to try it and it’s bitterly disappointing. At the end of a working day, I notice that it’s balled up and caused my make up to become seriously patchy. It looks like I have huge patches of dried skin where the product has gone funky. I’ve tried it for a week or two now, giving it every chance under every foundation and sadly it’s just not worked at all. If I could ask for a refund I fully would. I’ll stick to my other primers.
    Good for oily skinnnn!
    Here is the condition of my skin: young, oily, has texture due to blemishes, always slightly dehydrated due to some heavy dosage of retinol and glycolic acid. This primer has worked well on me and definitely gives me enough hydration to put another layer of oil sucking foundation
    Over hyped
    I got this after seeing so many influencers rave about it, and to be honest I don’t see why! It separated my foundation, it is too sticky, so your foundation goes really patchy, and even when you think you have rubbed it in enough (tried various techniques and I’m not an inexperienced makeup user by any means) and it just caked up and went very patchy.
    Bought after seeing it all over TikTok
    I was eager to get this primer after seeing so many people go on about it, it is just ok nothing spectacular
    Honestly love this primer, I’ve never really found a primer that works as I find they used to mainly just make my makeup slip around but this honestly has changed the way my skin looks! My pores look so smooth and I look radiant whenever I use this primer.
    Best primer
    I noticed a lot of people using this so thought I would try it- hands down best primer! I’m going to repurchase when I have run out
    Sometimes this drys lovely and works really well to keep my foundation in place and other days it makes my foundation piles up and moves around. Unsure why as everything is the same for both times. My product came faulty also, however cult beauty were fabulous and sent me a new one! Couldn’t recommend cult beauty more! However maybe give hydro grip a miss.
    So good.
    Love this product, only primer that works for me!
    The travel size is not worth it
    I was so shocked when I opened my package to see a box that could compare to a perfume sample. I always buy minis of primers to try out before investing but for £13 for what you get is crazy. Nice primer nonetheless.
    Good hold, don't mix with oils
    Love the primer.. however you cannot mix with anything oily as it makes your makeup move, it affects any powder that you put on your face. With just a moisturiser it works perfectly, I used the ordinary moisturiser and I have used too faced and strobe cream and they work fine.
    It's good
    It's good and feels nice and you don't need a lot for it to work, but I don't think it's made my make up stay on any longer. And my foundation still goes cakey if it is fuller coverage but it works well with my lighter coverage and more dewy finish foundations.
    Best thing ever!
    I’ve never bought a primer before, never understood the hype especially as I don’t wear foundation and only BB creams and a touch of concealer. This absolutely changed my life though. Due to not wearing much face makeup within an hour or two you could guarantee my face will have rubbed off and I’d be looking dull and like I’ve done nothing to get ready. Then I saw the hype around this. Yes, it’s a bit sticky, but that’s only for a short while until it soaks in. I love this so much! I put it on top of my sun cream and leave it for a minute and get on with my eyebrows, then once it soaks in it is just so soft and so lovely to touch and my skin feels amazing. My makeup stays put ALL DAY. Truly life-saving.
    great primer
    this primer is probably one of my favourites at the moment as it makes my base look flawless, especially when I want a dewy and natural finish. I would recommend using a lightweight foundation rather than a medium to full coverage foundation on top as it can look quite cakey but overall really good!!!
    Hydro grip primer
    Banging primer, smells beautiful and makes my foundation last ages, I could not love it more.
    MUST HAVE!!!!
    Best primer I have ever used... dewy, light and keeps my makeup on for longer! Absolute must have!!
    Awful product
    Aside from the product arriving faulty (which CB resolved very well- no shade to them). Makeup separated and came off as I was blending even though I followed the instructions. Couldn’t even test longevity because it looked horrendous before I even finished applying. Save your money and spend it elsewhere.
    Buy it!
    Best primer.
    I love this primer, I have tried so many over the years all of which have made my dry skin more noticeable once foundation is applied. This primer is hydrating and makes my skin look smooth, I work long shifts (12+ hours) and have found that my makeup lasts through the day! definitely will be repurchasing.
    Not great
    The product was dry and didn’t really sink into the skin so the foundation didn’t go on very well considering it’s meant to be a primer.
    Favourite Primer!
    I purchased this primer after reading all of the reviews and I love it! Before using this primer my foundation would go cakey and horrible. Since using this my make up looks flawless and stays on all day. It’s not very often I love makeup product but I honestly love this primer and I’ve recommended this to all of my friends! 10/10 will buy again!
    Has it changed?
    I got a sample of this and thought wow this is amazing! I ordered it (luckily the smaller size as the bigger one was out of stock) Something has changed, it doesn't last the day and is a bit tacky. I also find the bottle really annoying as it doesn't always pump out. I won't buy again
    This is the worst primer i ever used! It just made my foundation cake. Waste of money
    Mate this primer is the sh*t for dry/combination skin. Did a wear test in humid English weather and my face lasted the whole day, just make sure to use a powder. so if u got mad oily skin this will just make ur face hella sticky. the only draw back is it smells a bit like kush but this brand kinda endorses that which i have no problem with honestly. Defo need to try their face powder and kush products next. definitely worth the money 100%
    Worth the money
    One of the best primers I’ve used for dry skin, it makes your face look so flawless and also feel so hydrated when wearing this. Therefore I think it’s worth the price and would highly recommend.
    Favourite Primer
    The best primer I have found !!! I have repurchased this product 3 times now (which doesn’t happen very often with primers ) The texture of this primer is lovely as it dries down it creates a slight tacky feel to the skin which grips makeup beautifully . It both hydrates and soothes my skin without making it overly oily and has a lovely dewy finish with out feeling greasy at all ! Also love the fact that this doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients such as silicone and has some really amazing ingredients that will work as an extension to your skin care .
    Sticky for a while and doesn’t do much to hold makeup for the day.
    Great but.....
    I love how much grip my skin has after I use this foundation but I haven’t really noticed that it makes my foundation look better.
    ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ absolutely incredible product, does everything you want a primer to do! It’s so tacky when you apply and makes foundation look incredible!
    I was really curious to try this and was left a little disappointed. I do think that it's a great product and I know it is raved about throughout the beauty community. But dare I say I found it too sticky! I found that after I applied it and then went to use my foundation and beauty blender that it created a barrier on my blender and I could blend the product as well. Now I stick to a more creamer primer.
    Milk primer
    Absolutely in love with this product; amazing hold and keeps my skin feeling hydrated.
    Ok but expected better
    I don't dislike this primer, it helped with the longevity of my makeup. However, I wanted it to be a lot more hydrating and the pump was a little hit and miss dispensing the product. I doubt I will be repurchasing.
    Just alright
    It's good if you want hydration but massively overrated for its staying power, doesn't make your makeup last any longer and in my experience makes is susceptible to moving if you get your face wet in the rain or have watery eyes
    Milk primer
    Feels cooling on skin, tacky so foundation sticks to it well skin looks good with it on
    Great alone or under makeup
    Love it applied alone on top of SPF just pressed in, controls shine great without drying me out. Makeup layers nicely on top of it
    The Best!
    I have never used a primer this amazing and trust me - I've used a lot! My skin type has changed a lot in the past year, from oily/combo, to dry to normal/combo and this primer has worked for me throughout! The texture is quite tacky, meaning that it holds onto your makeup and lasts all day and it is not drying. Would deffo recommend for someone in need of a long-lasting primer!
    Best primer I’ve tried
    Having read the reviews I was quite skeptical about buying this product and if it lives up to the name. I have oily/combination skin and I must say this made my makeup look so flawless! I didn’t need to touch up during the night and it gives your skin a smooth base to apply your makeup.
    I ordered this primer as everyone said it holds your makeup very well. It does keep my makeup on however I expect a primer to also smooth and blur which this primer does not do. I have many other primers that blue and hold my makeup on all day
    As someone with dry, sensitive and eczema prone skin I'm always nervous about trying new face products...thank goodness I tried this! It's fast to absorb into the skin with little/no scent. The gel consistency doesn't feel greasy but keeps my skin looking dewy and hydrated all day (even under powder). My makeup has never stayed looking so good for so long (I wear roughly 11hrs Monday to Friday for work). Will be buying again :)
    Really Good
    Still feels sticky and a bit heavy on the skin however it helps my makeup stay on longer than it usually does without the primer. It’s surprisingly really good because even though it still sticks and a bit heavy you can get passed that.
    Good product
    Very hydrating on the skin. Holds make up in place perfectly.
    Good for not creating dry patches, not convinced about makeup lasting longer
    I find primers can dry my skin out and I end up with dry flakes on my cheeks and nose. This certainly has essentially solved that issue, and my makeup glides beautifully over the top, but I'm not convinced it actually makes my makeup last longer- those red cheeks are definitely visible by late afternoon
    Read so many reviews about this and wanted to give it a try. Love it you only need a little and your make up stay on until you wash it off. Your foundation sticks to it like glue and looks amazing. I definitely recommend
    Love this primer! It feels slightly sticky when applied but keeps your foundation on throughout the whole day so well. My skin feels super light and have no trouble with irritation or allergies with the primer.
    Oily skins DREAM
    Look, I know, it's marketed towards dry skin, but I have oily/combination skin, meaning I'm stuck using cakey matte foundations in the hope that they last all day. I always look so flat and I want that dewy look. I bought this on a whim after looking at great reviews and oh my lord I love it. My foundation lasts so much longer AND my matte foundations now look lovely and natural rather than cakey and flat. A real game-changer.
    This makes it feel like your foundation has been on for days - my skin feels itchy and irritated underneath and I can't wait to remove later in the day. It also highlights my pores more than any other primer I've used.
    Best primer ever.
    All day makeup
    Bought the smaller version to try, don't really use primer but purchased to see if it would make a difference. It definitely helps your makeup stay on all day without it looking like it's melting off especially after 8 hours in an office. The downfall is if you put it in your makeup bag the product will tilt, if the product is tilted it won't pump out, and because the product is thick you have to wait a long time for it to set on the bottom to pump it out properly. Because of this, I'm not sure if I will be re-purchasing.
    Love it!
    You only need a small amount and it doesn’t feel heavy either!
    Great product
    I took the plunge and got this after reading VERY mixed reviews, and I love it. You get a massive 45ml of product as opposed to the 30ml you usually get, which is a big plus. Other reviews said that this pills up but I’ve been using this for a month and I’ve never had that happen. I even use this over a pore filling primer in the t-zone and it still doesn’t pill up. My makeup doesn’t budge when I wear this (it will last through long sweaty shifts at work), but I do still find myself getting oily. So be warned that if you’re like me with very oily skin this won’t keep oil at bay, but it will keep your makeup on.
    It’s ok
    I’m still trying it out and it’s just ok. It feels really nice on the skin but I don’t feel like it does anything out of the ordinary with keeping my make up on. It is a nice consistency and I’m happy to continue using it. I might try a few others before deciding to buy this again.
    I've never really bothered spending lots of money on primers, but I went into Sephora and just tested this on my hand to see if it was any good AND. I. FELL. IN. LOVEE... this is is by far the BEST primer I have ever had and makes my makeup last pretty much all day - which is really impressive as I have quite an oily/combo skin type. DEFINITELY WILL BUY AGAIN.
    Amazing primer! My makeup sits so nicely on my skin and lasts all day long! I have combination skin and it doesn’t stick to my dry patches and also controls oil on my t zone! Would definitely recommend this primer!
    Grabs your make up and doesn’t let go
    If you like your make up to stay where you put it, this is the primer for you. Does a brilliant job without drying out your skin.
    Perfect base
    This primer really is the perfect base it preps your skin and your makeup does not move or wear off where it normally would. Would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing, you won’t regret it.
    Ok but not brilliant
    Product is ok. Takes a while to figure out how best to use. Isn’t outstanding
    Staying power is great but ...
    I read about this primer on a few online sites and wanted to give it a go. The staying power is great. My foundation literally did not move the whole day. But it did make my skin look and feel a little taunt. It’s recommended for dry skin but not sure I would agree. It takes away the glow my foundation usually gives. Definitely recommend if you have an event or a night out but not for everyday use.
    Hydro Gripping Primer
    This is the best priming product I’ve ever used!! Beautiful on myself and clients. I have super oily skin and after a long day of full makeup and partying hard at pride none of my foundation on my t-zone has budged or moved a single bit, this used to happen all the time. I also use this for weddings, runways, etc and each client and model felt joy with how long their makeup lasted. Highly recommend!
    Genuinely brilliant product!
    I absolutely love this product, it makes my skin look radiant and lasts the whole day through! How brilliant to get a product that lives up to its promises!
    Genuinely Rubbish
    Don’t waste your money on this; it feels tacky and when I put my foundation on it spread unevenly. It’s so tacky that the foundation and primer adhered to the sponge and lifted it off again creating an absolutely horrific base. I wish I could get my money back, truly one of the worst purchases I have made in a while.
    I really love this primer! A small amount goes a long way. Use it everyday and really helps my makeup stay put! Will be purchasing again for sure.
    I've seen this all over Instagram and tried my luck... it didn't go down well. Not a great value for money at all, 10ml for £13 seriously? I could easily go to the drug store and get more of a value for money with the same ingredients and effectiveness. Additionally, the bottle wasn't even filled up to the top! I mean what a scam, such a small bottle as it is, yet they cut a lot of product out! Will not be purchasing any Milk products going forward.
    New fave
    I like that it's hydrating and slightly tacky, meaning my foundation will not budge. I also like that my skin doesn't get too oily in the t-zones. I like the glow from within it gives too. It won't blur out your pores or anything, but does give a refreshing, healthy, like you've drunk 2 liters of water look.
    A God Send
    This primer is the best primer I've ever used! It works so well and holds my makeup in place all day and makes it last longer. I use Lush Cosmetic's foundation and Glossier Stretch Concealer and by the end of a long day at work my makeup still looks fresh and does not crease one single bit! Highly recommend!!
    I bought the mini to try it... Awesome!
    You know sometimes you see the Youtubers you follow all raving about something and you want to believe them and when you buy what they recommend and it’s better than you thought? THAT’S a good day. I got this with the pay day treat of 20% and if it finishes before the next one, I will buy it anyway. My make up lasts all day, goes on flawless and always looks fresh. I like to layer my primers because of the nature of my skin but this is the one that goes on last to lock them all in place and it is lovely. I would definitely recommend and I will definitely buy it again... and again... and again.
    I personally think it's a bit over-hyped. Doesn't seem to do much than other cheaper primers I've used before. If you're buying this in the hopes of it working with annoying smile lines, etc. I wouldn't really get too excited. It does grip your makeup and make it last longer but it's a bit hit or miss, depending on what type of moisturiser you use under it.
    Game changer!
    This primer is like nothing I’ve ever tried before. It’s amazing at keeping makeup in place, doesn’t clog pores and therefore stops my skin getting oily so quick. It doesn’t do anything for creating a smooth canvas so I’ll sometimes still use Porefessional underneath then this locks my foundation on. Even on holiday with humid nights, still worked perfectly.
    Amazing Primer
    Amazing primer, good for dry skin and made my foundation smooth. Love this so much.
    Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer
    The scent of the primer is not pleasant and pretty fragrant, it also dries VERY fast. However, it does make your makeup look great and last all day long, but I wouldn’t necessarily say this is the most ‘hydrating’ (as it claims to be) primer which I’ve ever tried.
    Best primer on the market
    Hydrating, high performance, amazing price point. At almost 50 with fine lines and dry skin, this product gives me a flawless finish. HIGHLY recommend. I'm now on my 2nd bottle. Although I have Bobbi Brown, Smashbox and Becca primers, this is by far my favourite.
    Honestly the best primer I've ever tried.
    I have incredibly sensitive and dry skin, most silicone primers and normal gel primers dry me out and irritate my skin. This one, however, is very refreshing and moisturising - it makes my skin texture look smooth and flawless.
    Travel size
    I bought the travel size to test it before diving in and getting the full size. Firstly, the travel size is tiny. Like I hadn’t expected it to be that small so I should’ve just got the full size in the first place but for travelling it will be really good. I bought this primer because it’s got such a hype around it and I have really oily skin and people I watch that have oily skin rave about this. I love the packaging, you only need 1-2 pumps for your full face. It has a cooling almost tingling sensation when it goes on and then it has a tacky base. It worked really well with my matte foundation and my skin looked really good and healthy. In terms of longevity, I don’t think it’s made a huge difference but I’m still testing it out. I do recommend this and I think I will probably buy the larger size.
    Milk primer not for me
    I was so excited about this primer as it has gotten so much hype. But it just didn’t do anything for me. At all. And my skin looked funny towards the end of the day.
    Buy This!!
    My makeup looked so flawless after applying this! It lasted so long and it gave me a healthy natural glow look which didn’t get greasy towards the end of the day. I have dry skin with combination in my t zone.
    Makes your make up last
    I use this and it really works. My skin is oily and make up stays in place, despite the weather or activity. I love it. I use 1 - 2 pumps and leave it to dry. Make up doesn't seem to move and creases seem to be less. Skin does look healthy with it on.
    I was hesitant to try this as there are so many mixed reviews but I did eventually and I wasn't disappointed. I have combination skin, my under-eyes, cheeks and forehead can get quite dry but my nose, eyelids and chin can get kind of oily. First of all, you can really feel that grip effect when you use this, I apply 1 pump all over my face and let it dry down for about 1 minute. It's really lightweight and has a sort of cooling effect. I found my foundation visibly sits on my face better when I use this primer, it makes application so much easier, and I find I also use less, which is good. I've tested it with a few products including my everyday foundation which is basically a tinted moisturizer all the way up to my Huda Beauty Faux Filter and they've all worked really well with this primer. I think not overloading this product is the key to this primer working. Seeing as it sticks down so well, adding more on top sort of makes it shift around and go clumpy. Also, this might not be the best for people with really dry skin as It can be quite drying on my dry patches of skin but that's balanced out with using a moisturizing foundation and I also use Pixi glow mist which is good for boosting hydration throughout the day. In all, this is a really unique formula and it works really well. I would definitely recommend!
    Great for me!
    I’m not a big wearer of makeup, Usually I just wear concealer dotted on spots I want to hide, and some highlighter, as well as my eyebrows, and that’s it! I’m very lucky and my skin is very healthy and spot-free so I don’t wear foundation and just use concealer. My skin is dry and sensitive and this product works great; I look dewy and my skin feels moisturised all day, but once it did irritate my eye a little bit. I think I just applied it too close to my eye, so be wary of that! Over all great product!
    Beware if you have sensitive skin
    I went to a music festival in Malta last weekend and wanted to make sure my makeup stayed on all day while enjoying the music. Ideally, something that wouldn't budge for several hours of dancing. To put on the primer is sticky and really does grip the foundation, though I find it most effective when I applied by hand. Though the makeup didn't budge, my eyes were really irritated by the product, which lead to my mascara running down my face. I tried it again a second day and was again left with red, teary eyes and the skin beginning to crack in the crow's feet area. I will not be using it again myself but might be ok if your skin is less sensitive.
    One of the best primers I have used. It doesn’t lie when it says it’s hydrating. My skin feels so fresh after using it. It applies easily and the pump bottle makes this nice and easy. My makeup stays on all day using this primer.
    This primer is wonderful! It feels cooling and refreshing to apply, contains some good ingredients to help with bacteria and inflammation and really does hold makeup in place all day. It does have a strange scent, almost medicinal but it is fantastic!
    This prolongs my makeup all day! I wear super dewy products and this helps them from breaking down and it makes it last so much longer. 100%
    Best ever primer?
    Ok so I’ve tried loads of primers, but this is the only one which really holds your make up in place by the end of the day. Face and even eyeliner stays put for longer. Needs a bit of drying time, 2-3 mins but that’s the only tiny negative. Love!!
    Didn't work for me
    I tried a variety of foundations and cc creams with this primer but it just doesn't work for me. I have combination skin and it dried out my 'normal' bits while not seemly managing any shine prevention on the more greasy bits.
    Believe the hype
    This primer goes on like a dream and keeps your foundation in place all day. I look forward to trying more from this brand
    I am so happy I bought this!
    TL/DR? If you have combo skin with redness and like a medium coverage look, this primer is amazing. If you have large pores you may need a dedicated primer in those areas. This primer does not claim to blur pores. Try a sample if you use super full coverage formulas. I have what I like to call extreme combo skin - i.e. my t-zone, chin and cheeks are like an overfilled frying pan while the rest of my skin is as dry as the Sahara during a drought. This primer works well on my whole face and seems to calm my redness right down. I know this has a green tint, but it actually physically seems to calm my skin and rosacea. I was not expecting that to happen, so I now wear this everyday regardless due to the calming it does. If you have dish plate pores like me, you will need a pore filling primer in those areas, but the primer doesn't claim to fill pores so I can't complain about that. I use IT cosmetics CC cream or Wet n Wild Photofocus, Coty Airspun powder and urban decay concealer, I have not experienced cakey-ness personally, but I do not use super full coverage formulas. If you like a very full coverage foundation I would maybe try a sample if possible, other reviews seem to point to cakeyness in some cases. Some people with oily skin mention breakouts, I haven't experienced this personally but everyone is different. I have mild/moderate adult acne, rosacea and eczema, and my skin tolerates this if that helps anyone to make a decision. Sorry for the long review, it seems hit and miss for others, but for me this is what I have been looking for since I was 14. It's a big deal to me and I hope this review will help someone who may be similar to me. Have a great day all!
    Don’t believe the hype.
    I bought this after reading the amazing reviews and I thought this primer will be the best thing. How wrong was I. I have combination skin and wore this primer with my Nars foundation and my face has never looked so cakey. I thought maybe it’s the type of foundation I’m using and should perhaps try one for drier skin, so I wore this with my IT Cosmetics CC illumination cream and my face once again looked matte and cakey and everything on my face was showing such as pores etc. The texture on my face was no way smooth and it just looks so unnatural. I seriously don’t know why it’s getting all these great reviews. P.S. I waited a whole minute before I put foundation on.
    I love it.
    This primer is really good, my foundation stays on all day, I love it!!!
    Great for some, but not for me!
    I love everything about this product... apart from how it works with my skin. I am unfortunately oily skinned and this silky smooth primer accelerates my foundation slipping off and becoming cloggy. My makeup looks worse with this primer than without. Having read the other reviews I can see most people that love this product have dry skin, so I thought it's worth mentioning that it does not work the same wonders for oily skin. On the plus side, the quantity they give you is huge! Such good value for money, it is cool and silky and sinks in really fast. I will absolutely be trying more Milk products despite not getting on with this one!
    I’m constantly buying primers as my skin is dry and no matter what primer I’ve used the foundation was still latching on to my dry patches and my foundation looked a mess by the end of the day. When I saw this primer I knew I needed to try it! Not only does the foundation grip on to my face but it keeps it hydrated all day as well! After wearing my makeup after 8 hours today it stil looked amazing, I’m over the moon with this primer everything I’ve been looking for!!
    Absolutely can’t express how amazing this primer is. Foundation glides on and stays put all day. Keeps my skin feeling like it can breathe while it’s being hydrated. My Best buy hands down.
    Best primer
    This has got to be the best primer I have used in a long long time, possibly ever. Goes on my skin so nicely and makes it such a smooth canvas for my makeup and it is gripped to last hours and hours and looks flawless, exactly the same as when I first apply it.
    Holy Grail status in ONE day!
    I ordered this yesterday morning when it came online, all the blurb screamed that it would be just what I wanted. Cult Beauty delivered today although I didn't request next day delivery which is really impressive. The hype was right. I quickly cleansed half my face and set to applying this and my foundation. It is amazing on my normal-dry skin.Smooth and hydrating but not sticky. My foundation went over the top like an absolute dream and I used far less of it than usual. Dewy, glowy skin but not greasy which is what I need for my tired skin, it didn't crease and I didn't need to set with powder. It's amazing and I can't wait to put it on again tomorrow. Massive amount for the price, fresh scent but not like it's fragranced more like it's the ingredients. This has already replaced my other HG primer which was a lot more expensive for the same amount. LOVE IT !
    Not for me
    I received 2 samples of this primer from various goody bags. Tried it on first time today as I just used up my previous primer. I have to say this is not for me, to be honest, I can hardly believe this is a primer. I'd rather it is a moisturizer or something else as its texture is quite watery and makes your skin feels hydrating and cool in a hot summer day. I guess it is fine to use it alone or as your last step of your skincare routine. But as long as I follow it up with the foundation, as it actually is a primer after all, disaster here you go. The primer itself is a little bit sticky after I left it on my face for a few minutes for absorption as the instructions stated. Then I found out I cannot blend out my foundation on top of this primer evenly. The combination of this primer with my Kanebo cream foundation is like rubber flakes if you know what I mean, the more I blend it up with the sponge, the more sticky flakes there become. I have used my foundation with other primers before, never experience problem like this. This primer ruined my makeup today.
    Absolutely amazing primer, only thing that keeps my makeup on all day/ night :)
    I have never ever found a primer that has done anything for my combination skin type. I bought this because I’d heard from a beauty influencer that it is the best for stopping oil creeping through into your foundation and I was astounded at how well this performed. Will never buy another primer please never discontinue this!
    Best primer
    This is the best primer I ever had. I have very dry skin and this keeps the makeup on me forever.
    Milk primer
    This product is so amazing it's like foundation glue lol.
    A really good primer, melts into my skin nicely but is still tacky. As others have said don’t put it on areas where you have big pores as it does seem to enhance these. Do like the fact I can mix a bit of dewy skin gel into it and it looks amazing. Grips onto anything put on top without pealing, creating texture, or looking cakey
    Decent Primer
    I wanted to see if this works. I have an oily T zone and my makeup is off my face by lunchtime when at work with air con and heat. I would say it holds makeup really well, my foundation goes on well (Estee Lauder double wear) but I do find my pores are a little noticeable on my nose. I think less is more and one pump is more than enough. I prefer Smashbox Oil Control primer but wouldn't give this Milk one up. On a weekend if I'm not doing much I find it works better, gives a lovely dewy finish but I sadly need a little more. I'm still going to use it and just blot it in the afternoon when needed.
    I am now having a great result with this product. I only use it where its needed i.e my t-zone . Also the smallest amount makes all the difference to your foundation application.
    Great product
    I really enjoy this primer. I think it fills in my pores and smoothes my face well without it looking complete matte. Gives a lovely dewy look and makeup really does grip to it.
    One of the best primers
    I really like this! Has a good grip, and fills in pores quite well!
    Mediocre / didn't work for me
    I don't really use primer but I have tried a few. It didn't give that nice velvety feeling and the makeup didn't grip to it, instead, it created lumps and balls when I tried to apply my foundation. So after trying it a few times, I gave it away.
    Patchy & pilling
    I REALLY wanted to love this product but I just cannot get it to work for me. I’m 42 with fair combination skin. I have used this 4 times now with different methods & products but every time it just ends up patching & literally causing my foundation to pill & ball up on my face making it unwearable! To the extent I have to remove it & start again - minus the Milk Hydrogrip. I’ve tried it with Hourglass Vanish liquid foundation, Beautyblender Bounce foundation & Fenty Beauty too......all looked terrible. I’ve placed 1 pump on the back of my hand & patted a thin layer onto my moisturised skin leaving it to set as recommended for between 1-5 minutes before putting makeup on. I’ve tried foundation brush, Beauty Blender & just fingers to apply makeup over it all with the same disastrous results! I would love to be told I’m doing something wrong & to be able to get this to work for me but unless that happens I just hate this & am sooooooo disappointed! I stupidly invested in the big bottle, believing I would love it but sadly now all I’m left with is a bottle of product I hate & no usable primer! I can’t wait for shops to reopen & a time when we can get samples of a product before buying it!
    Not what I was expecting
    I got this primer because I had wanted it for ages, however, after following what it says to do my foundation was not sticking to my nose at all, and my chin was also slightly patchy. I heard such great things about how it keeps your makeup in place all day, so I am determined to keep trying until I get it to work right.
    Bought as a gift for my daughter. She totally loves this primer, the best ever.
    Great Primer!
    Only primer I have found that actually makes my makeup stay on for longer!
    Really wanted to love this primer...
    I’ve been trying to get hold of this primer for so long and finally got my hands on it! It feels nice to apply but sets quite quickly so I feel like you need to use a lot and not sure how long it’s going to last. Used this for the last week with CT flawless filter over the top for WFH but I’ve never looked so oily by 12pm and I can see lines that I’ve never even seen before (I’m 27!) I have oily/acne skin so wasn’t expecting wonders but this doesn’t seem any better than a £5 primer that I’ve got from boots! I want to love it and heard that even without makeup it reduces redness so going to give a more bare-faced look a go next week! Might be good for really heavy makeup and setting.
    Nice product
    I like this primer texture-wise but for me, I don’t think it has the best-staying power but makeup does apply really nicely over it
    Love this primer!
    I absolutely love this primer it really helps to keep my makeup on in my oily areas but also hydrates my dry areas, it’s great for combination skin! I just wish they would keep it in stock more regularly.
    Grippy and great
    Skin type: Combination This product works great on both the oily and dryer areas of my face, keeping my make-up set well. It may leave your face slightly 'tight', but that's easily combatted by a good moisturiser and foundation. The is definitely one of the best primers I have used. You do have to apply your make-up less heavy handedly though, as this really does grip everything!
    Lovely product
    I bought this for my daughter and she loves it! It keeps her make-up on all day.
    Best primer I’ve bought
    Highly recommend! Tried many primers and this one is the only one I can notice a major difference in my make up when I use it. Not oily, sinks enough into the skin but doesn’t dry it out or over moisturise either! Great product.
    Not completely transferproof
    I wore this under my Marc Jacobs Gel Foundation and it still transferred to my mask, but much lesser than without it. I'm in the opinion that it's not a must-have but definitely useful whenever you have a long commute to work and need your makeup to last all day.
    After reading and watch reviews on TikTok, I decided to give this a go and I couldn’t be happier!! I have the oiliest skin and always find my make up coming off within hours of putting it on. This primer has made my make up last until the end of the day, it’s completely changed my make up game! 100% will be buying this again!!
    Best Primer...
    I have only used this twice but I AM OBSESSED. This made me make up stick to my face all day, even wearing a mask. Will 100% re-buy!!
    Love it!
    The best primer I own. Makeup stays put even on my oiler skin after being at work all day. Love it! A*****
    Best primer I’ve ever tried.
    I can’t hype this primer up enough! It’s amazing and makes my makeup last all day! I thought it was broken to begin with but I put the nozzle on my hand and created a vacuum almost and then I had product! 10/10 for me
    Love this primer! Goes onto the skin really easy, and gives you a dewy, healthy complexion. I’ve found that my make up stays on all day and my skin looks radiant. Would definitely recommend it!
    Best primer
    Saw a lot of youtubers using this as a go to primer. Exceeded my expectations!!
    Milk primer
    This product is actually very nice. I was surprised by how it applied to the skin it wasn’t too thick. When applying my foundation over the primer Was stick which really helped to keep it in place and made the duration of my makeup last longer. Would highly recommend to anyone, but the only issue is the price. But it’s super worth it.
    Good primer
    I purchased this primer after seeing the hype, I tried it for the first time and was really disappointed, my make up went all cakey on my cheeks and it didn't smooth out my large pores. BUT after doing my proper skin care routine and using less foundation I am impressed. My make up has stayed in place even with wearing a mask, I have a couple of small dry patches that have appeared but I think that's just my skin. It hasn't really smoothed out the look of my pores but I can cope with that. The only reason it isn't 5 star is because of the price and how tiny it is. Really hoping it continues to keep my make up in place :)
    Really disappointed
    After I applied my foundation over the primer my makeup immediately began separating- and it got worse when I added concealer. It became impossible to blend any cream or liquid product over it. Any time during the day when I tried to do touch ups my skin just started showing through and my face looked at hot mess. Wouldn't recommend !
    Not for me
    I bought the smaller size thankfully, but his pilled up like crazy after I applied my makeup and I found that so annoying. Unfortunately, it just didn't work for me. Althought lots of people love this product so it may work for others.
    Not for me
    It has got glue texture and is sticky. When makeup is being applied after this primer it just pills up. This is one of the rare products I had actually chucked it.
    Very good, keeps make up in place all day!
    MY FAVE PRIMER!!!! So good and so sticky really holds onto foundation
    Hydro grip primer
    The absorption was beautiful, keeps my skin hydrated under my foundation. A definite recommend for all of my friends.
    The hydro grip primer by Milk is the best! I have tried many many primers but nothing works as best as this. I have never seen my foundation look so smooth and there was no visible cracks either, my makeup lasted for the whole day and it left a glow to my face. You must buy this, it is definitely worth the price.
    This primer is perfect for long wear makeup! It does exactly like the name of it - hydrates and grips when goes on rubs in like water based and then has a tacky grip which makes the makeup last. I used with both huda beauty foundation and the ordinary foundation and my makeup has lasted for roughly 12 hours perfect for a night out.
    New go to!
    I loved this from the first day of using the product. Provides a flawless canvas to start working with and makeup still looks fresh after 10 - 12 hours of application!
    best primer ever BUT BE AWARE
    i tried this with the too faced born this way foundation and it looked disgusting :( very cakey and separated (think it has to do with it being a water based product) but with tried with fenty foundation it looks flawless and is always my go to! this is a perfect product just make sure it works with your specific foundation :)
    Good but took a few tries to get right
    This primer is really sticky so it holds your foundation well and for a long time. It smooths the skin quite well and has a natural to glowy finish. However the first few times I tried this primer I put a little to much on and it started to peel under my foundation and crack my makeup. So the following day I put on a lot less and next to nothing on my fine lines and it worked perfectly and really increased the longevity of my makeup now I use most days! x
    Best primer going
    You don’t have to go crazy with the amount. So great value for money and amazing results. Full day to night and my make up looked flawless. Highly recommend
    Absolutely love this primer, it’s perfect for my skin type, really tacky and foundations sticks perfectly to it!!
    Nice product that gave my skin a glow
    This product is really nice, I like the smell of it, it gives my skin a glow without any makeup too. I don’t know if it’s worth the price compared to cheaper products, but I do like it
    Best primer I’ve ever used
    I have been so fed up with primers clogging and climbing under foundation and almost gave up with them but an MUA recommended this and it is amazing. You have to leave it a minute to allow it to start to go tacky and it just acts like Velcro for your foundation on top. My entire face of makeup stays on from 7 am right through past the sweaty gym session after work. Just brilliant.
    First over received ever from Cult beauty and this was one of the items that I had purchased. Very disappointed with this as the pump doesn’t work on it! Sad... really wanted to try this too :(
    Make up lasts all day!
    I love this product. I generally struggle to find make up related items for my sensitive skin but this seems to do really well for me, it’s tacky on contact but still feels very light. My make up stays in place all day and my pores seem to look smaller under my make up. I will definitely be repurchasing this, 5 stars!
    Pretty good with some caveats
    This isn't terribly hydrating but I do like how it leaves the skin feeling tacky. I think it's actually better for makeup looks where you don't need to do loads of blending because once your foundation is dried down or has been set there's no budging and blending in contour becomes a bit more difficult. I like using this on no-makeup makeup days when I'm just using a BB cream.
    Doesn't do much
    I haven't noticed much of a difference with how long my makeup stays on. I bought this mainly for the hydrating glow I thought it would give me, but it doesn't do anything noticeable. The 10ml bottle is also a lot smaller than you think!
    Hydro Grip Primer
    Absolutely love this, I don't know how I lived before without it!
    one of the best
    Really good primer, lives up to it's reputation. Read lots of reviews saying it leaves a "tacky" finish to the skin - it's true, does exactly what it says - "hydro GRIP". Leaves skin soft & smooth, but if you're looking for a primer that performs like a heavy silicone based product (like benefit porefessional for example) this probably isn't for you. If you like a primer than provides a bit of grip/good surface for makeup to hold, this is the right product.
    Love this, easy to use and makes a real difference to the staying power of my makeup. Will definitely continue to buy.
    Does the job but probably too hydrating .
    I ordered this due to the amazing reviews I’ve seen online. I’ve got dark combination skin and textured in some areas. I’m yet to find a primer that keeps me shine free, not too dry, keeps makeup in place, doesn’t give me a greyish undertone. I think this does the job but probably too hydrating for me. I know Youtubers with oily skin that have ordered this and said it works wonders. I find applying a translucent powder straight after application helps. Apart from that the primer makes my makeup look fresh and dewy.
    Literally grips your existence
    I've been using this primer a little over a year now and it's amazing. I have tried it with the TooFaced Born this Way foundation, Beauty Blender foundation, Pat McGrath Foundation and Huda beauty foundation and it has a tacky consistency that grips onto the foundation making it budge proof as well as it being hydrating. Love, love this primer and so do my clients!
    My second bottle now
    Best thing ever
    I have a combination of skin and this product is AMAZING! Definitely worth buying!! It keeps my brows from fading and my makeup in place for the whole day. Truly a holy grail, and you don’t even need a lot. The only thing is if you have extremely oily skin, it will make you look dewy so probably use powder to set your face lightly first.
    actually works!
    This genuinely does extend my make up wear time - though it took a few goes for me to get the hang of using it, and I have very very very reactive skin and I'm not allergic to it :). Will definitely purchase the full size as I'm getting through this one quite quickly :).
    Broke me out
    I tried this 3 times and at first I was impressed. It leaves a lovely smooth canvas that works wonders when you apply makeup on top. However, I noticed every time I wore this primer my skin broke out in large spots that were incredibly painful and took ages to heal. Once I took this out my routine I no longer broke out. It’s a shame because it really does leave a nice canvas. Another issue I faced was that it did nothing to grip my foundation on and I actually found it made my skin more oily throughout the day, which is the opposite of what it claims. I’d say it would only work for you if you do not have spot prone oily skin.
    Amazing once you know how to apply it!
    Love the primer, at first I thought it was just ok and over-hyped like other reviews are saying. But If you apply your make up within a minute of applying the primer the results are just amazing. I have oily skin and it works great for me!
    My favourite of all primers
    I love this primer works perfect with my favourite foundation also
    If I could rate it less I would. Smelled bad and made my makeup come off
    This is the bomb
    Get this primer. Trust me!
    Great Stuff
    Tried all the primers and this is the one I keep going back to. I have dehydrated skin with fine lines and texture and while I wouldn't say this gets rid of any of it this does certainly stop flaky patches and leaves make up smooth and keeps it on all day.
    I have dry skin. It's cool once applied to the skin. It leaves a tacky base that grips foundation so easily. Love this primer.
    It's a bit pricey, but so good! Keeps my makeup on waaay longer and looking better than any other primer I've used!
    Milk hydro grip primer
    Love this primer
    Best Ever
    I use this primer everyday and it works! I have dry to combination skin and it does wonders.
    Velcro for foundation
    Love this primer. Started off with the small one as a tester and have used it every day since. Feels sticky when applied which I like as it means my foundation will last! I tend to use full coverage foundations and have oily/combination skin which hasn’t caused any issues once I’ve done the rest of my make up as usual.
    Best primer I’ve ever used!
    I honestly can’t apply makeup without using this, the difference is amazing. I have combination skin and it keeps it matte but also hydrated throughout the day. It’s quite tacky which keeps my makeup in place and reduces creasing. My absolute holy grail primer.
    Waste of money
    The bottle is probably the best thing about it.. causes more shine than any other primer I've used. Also, need about 2-3 pumps to cover the whole face as doesn't spread very well. Doesn't do much in the way of keeping make up looking fresh - doesn't minimize pores, reduce shine or reduce the appearance of lines in make up. I'll be going back to Cover FX
    Quite nice!
    It’s a nice primer, I like the smell of it as well as it feels while you’re applying it. It fills my pores really nicely which I like but I wouldn’t use it for all over my face since when I have applied it all over, it highlights my dry patches which sometimes I never even knew I had. I have used it with foundations which I know I love and it’s never made my dry patches stand out apart from this primer but I do use it for my t-zone and my pores
    Amazing ... Amazing
    One of the best products I have tried, I would recommend it always.
    The best primer ever
    I thought I had already found the best primer in the universe with Too Faced, but I was mistaken. This beats it - super lightweight gel that glides on smoothly and makes my skin blurred and perfect.
    It’s a heavy weight champion
    Never into primers because of their ashy feeling on the skin during and after application. Besides they never seems to hold make-up in place. But among all the heavy weight, high priced primers this one is a champion. Now even if I’m not wearing makeup I still wear it mix with a little Huda Beauty face a body shimmer. This primer takes the Cult Crown❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
    THE BEST PRIMER EVER!!!!!!! I have tried every primer out there. Becca, Huda, MAC, YSL, Hourglass, Fenty, Smashbox, I have a box full of half-used primers. Some do nothing, some settle in every fine line and emphasise texture, some turn my face into a greasy, hot mess. This holds my makeup, doesn’t affect how the foundation looks and keeps it looking fresh for 10 hours before I get a little (and I mean tiny amount of shine breaking through. It minimises my dinner plate pores to almost invisible and leaves me with a smooth canvas for my foundation. I’ve used it with YSL foundation, Armani and MAC and if the formula is dewy it stays dewy, matte and it stays matte. This is my holy grail. I’m 40 with oily skin that has hormonal breakouts and this has changed my makeup routine. Just make sure you give it 60 seconds to dry before you put on your foundation to let it dry. LOVE IT!!!!!!!
    Best primer I have tried... so far
    This primer has some serious staying power. When applied it is very tacky (good sign) and I imagine if you have dry skin (my skin is normal) it will help disguise that whilst helping your makeup stay all day. It does not help with oil though, my t-zone has a tendency to get a tad shiny after a few hours of wearing any foundation and still did that using this primer. I tried this with a few different foundations e.g Huda Beauty Faux Filter and the new Charlotte Tilbury AFF and it helped their staying power but also added a bit of life into their matte finishes so I really liked it. Worth a try, especially as you can buy a travel size first.
    Balls up my foundation
    I am really disappointed with this primer. I have been looking forward to buying it for ages and when I apply it and leave it around 5 minutes and then go to apply my foundation it ends up balling my foundation. I changed my foundation and the method to see if it still balls up and it does.
    I wanted to love this but...
    I would love to give this primer a higher rating as it did keep my makeup on lovely. However, after just one use, my cheeks broke out in a bright red rash that looked awful and was very difficult to cover up. This was the only new product that I had used that day so I know it was definitely this. I’ve also noticed that Alcohol Denat is quite high up on the list of ingredients, which may be why it affected my skin so much. Try at your own risk!
    Milk Hydro Gripping Primer
    I’m still experimenting with this product. It works really well if I put it over bare, cleansed skin, and is ok over a little serum, but that leaves my skin feeling tight. If I put moisturizer on, it doesn't have the same grip and works only as well as a normal primer.
    I have combo skin. My makeup stays put all day no sliding around love it best primer I've used and I've tried a hell of a lot
    so worth it
    I love this! it's not too heavy, but it's glowy and looks fresh on my skin. I usually wear this with just some concealer and powder, but it holds up really well with foundation too. It smells a little odd straight from the bottle, but the scent doesn't linger at all
    breaks me out
    Good product for extending the longevity of your foundation but breaks you out terribly.
    Love this!
    Tried this primer when given a sample and for me, it really helps my foundation to achieve an even finish and stay put. Does not dry / make my foundation look cakey or flaky. I do have dry skin and notice many who get on with this also do, so perhaps not for those with oily / combination skin. Do make sure you allow a good minute (as per instructions) for the primer to dry, otherwise it grips foundation in patches causing an uneven finish.
    I have never wanted to return a product before. This is genuinely awful. Feels fine when I apply it on my skin but then when I put make up on, it pills and makes my foundation look terrible! It enhances my pores & makes my makeup look cakey. I’ve tried with Fenty Pro Filt’r and Nars Sheer Glow and it does the exact same thing with both. Don’t waste your money!
    I LOVE this primer. It glides onto the skin beautifully, feels weightless and non-greasy and even gives me that glow right after application! The only issue I came across was that I found it didn’t really last over the course of the day, and I didn’t really notice it particularly holding my foundation on (although that could be more down to the foundation I use and how much I put on). For real, if this stuff kept my skin looking and feeling the way it does when I first apply it, I would have an endless supply of it. Excited to see how it affects my skin with extended use!
    I like it!
    I purchased the smaller size of this product to see if I liked it for a couple of weeks... it did not last long at all, the small bottle is TINY. In terms of value for money the bigger is better, I’m surprised there was enough in the small bottle to allow enough time to see if I really did like the product. However, I did! I wear make up for long amounts of time and this really helps it to stay on all day. It hydrated my whole face and especially my dry areas and leaves my skin glowy. I’m going to go for the larger bottle this time. Another issue I had with the bottle is that it’s really hard to get every bit of product out, the structure of the bottle doesn’t allow you to open towards the end to get everything out and some product gets wasted, because of this I wasn’t able to recycle the plastic. 4/5 could earn another star is packaging was rethought!
    Nah, this ain't it
    Was really hopeful for this primer - me having dry skin and this being sold as hydrating. But nope - can't get it to work with moisturiser under it or not. If I bother at it too much with my beauty blender when applying Milk foundation, it all sheers off in little clumps. Really frustrating. Kudos for cute packaging and being cruelty-free - that's great - but the amount you get is ridiculous (tiny bottle). Heading back to my Primeriser, because this ain't it.
    Great primer for dry skin
    Use on top or after your moisturiser. I find using it on top helps my makeup to look flawless and hold for longer. Very good product and worth buying.
    Heat melted makeup? Not with Milk!
    This primer is sensational. Forever I have struggled to find a primer/setting spray to stop the dreaded melted patchy makeup look. Hallelujah, I have found it! I used to suffer constantly with oily patches throughout the day & consequently white lines either sides of my specs after wearing them! Not with this amazing primer - so good it was goodbye setting spray! I use this with a translucent powder to hold my makeup in place & lasts all day. Even after sitting in a tinned roof warehouse office building in 28 Celsius weather - this phenomenal product makes my makeup look good as new. I highly recommend. Only thing I’d advise is to not keep this in your makeup bag on its side - it takes forever to fall down to the bottom & for the pump to collect it (and no way to open the container).
    Holy Grail primer!
    Wasn’t sure if this would work for me as I have super combination skin with an oily t-zone but honestly... it’s been amazing. My makeup lasts all day and still looks fresh - I’ve even used it under makeup for a gym sesh and my face was pretty flawless even after sweating.
    Think I might be doing something wrong?
    Everybody RAVES about this primer but for some reason on my skin it’s really hit or miss! I don’t know if maybe I’m using it wrong or maybe it doesn’t react well with the moisturiser or SPF I tend to use but sometimes it gives me a beautifully smooth base and other times the foundation comes off on my nose and sometimes I get streaks and spots left if I leave my foundation/concealer too long before blending! Real shame bc I was so excited for it after all the reviews.
    Milk Magic!
    Loving this primer. Makes my skin look even more youthful and glowy, and helps makeup sink into the skin like butter! It’s a must-have for your collection!! Go crazy!
    Best Primer Ever!
    This is my new go to primer. If you apply a layer, leave to dry and soak in, then you are set for a long lasting finish all thanks to this little gem. It feels lovely and cool when you apply it too.
    This primer got me GRIPPED!!
    My skin is combination; dry chin, sides of my nose and cheeks, whilst the bridge of my nose and forehead are on the shiny side. I continuously have an issue with getting foundation to stay put on my nose all day until this primer came along. It hydrates the areas that need it most and grips where I'd normally find foundation disappearing. Love, love, love and recommended to my friends too!
    A must have!
    My favourite primer. Perfect if you want a hydrated, dewy finish with your complexion. No strong smells and feels lovely and gripping after you let it sit for a minute.
    I love the idea of extra hydration and benefits such as B vitamins for my skin. Unfortunately, this primer doesn't work with any of my foundations. Makeup looks patchy and cakey.
    Great, but....
    It’s a great primer, even more so if you have dry skin but the scent is so strong and it takes a minute to get used to. Other than that, it's great!
    This is one of the BEST primers I’ve ever used! So worth the money. It keeps my makeup on the whole day and still looks amazing/fresh by the end of it. For reference, I’m normal to combination with an oily t-zone. If you’re sleeping on this, don’t... It’s that good.
    Not really
    I bought a couple of primers to try out before my wedding, and this wasn't that good. It feels like it should be really effective, because it goes on so nicely like an aloe gel, and then quickly transforms on your face into a really tacky base that was quite nice to apply makeup to. So far so good. The issue was that compared to other primers it didn't really keep product on my face. In my T-Zone I'm quite oily, and after a few hours I noticed patches where my foundation looked like it had just slid off. It doesn't normally do that, even when worn alone, and I wore it with setting spray. Nice base to apply make-up to, but the grip part of the product seemed mostly for show.
    Re-purchase? YES I’ll take another one!
    I bought this off the back of reading soo many great reviews. I love that the brand is so eco-friendly and sustainable and the hemp derived ingredients in this primer, sold it to me. I’ve tried it several times now and only need one pump really as that does the trick. It says to leave it for a minute to fully sink in, but I find it’s good to go after about 30-40 seconds. The finish isn’t as glassy as it looks on the models, but it leaves my skin feeling really smooth and definitely grips my make up. If you struggle with a lot of primers where it flakes or feels too sticky or too greasy (like myself), then this is definitely worth trying!
    I’ve never been one to spend a lot of money on a primer but when I read about this one, I was really excited to try it. I have very dry skin and makeup tends to cling to the dry patches on my face so thought that this primer could prevent this from happening while also making my makeup last much longer. Unfortunately, I’ve found that due to the sticky nature of this primer, it makes my makeup cling to dry patches even more than before and after a full day at work my makeup looks terrible! I will be on the lookout for a moisturising primer to replace this one.
    My favourite go-to primer
    I love this primer! It goes tacky once on and as you apply your foundation over the top, you can feel that it has a grip. Holds your make up in place all day.
    Twice tested - very poor each time!
    I was so excited about the release of Milk Makeup on Cult beauty and decided to go with Milks newest primer - how disappointed I was! It left my make up patchy, cakey and slipping off my face in patches throughout the day...I looked awful and never been so self conscious about my makeup before. Tried to give it the benefit of the doubt and pass it on to my friends to try out - maybe it was just me. But no the same happened to them! Such a shame considering the hype around this brand - money not well spent on this occasion
    Massive Hydro fan
    I really like this primer. I have dry, sensitive skin and it gives me such a dewy look without any foundation. Sometimes I just wear it on its own with a bit of bronzer and blush - makes every day makeup super easy!!
    I'm torn on this one.
    I want to love this so badly. It feels lovely when applied but I do find myself struggling to make it work. If you apply foundation with a sponge, don't panic when you see splotchy application dots in your magnifying mirror. Give it a few minutes and it settles in beautifully. I learned this after about the 6th attempt. Also, don't get it near your eye area, as it doesn't allow for easy concealer blending. It may sound obvious but anything goes on the first cuppa. My dry skin doesn't feel dry during the day when using this, but I do find that my foundation still cracks after a few hours, even after adding a drop of oil to it. That's retinol face for you and I guess this primer isn't a miracle worker. It doesn't play nice with most sunscreens. I find it difficult to layer with other priming products, so maybe it's not meant to, but who only uses one primer these days?! I want hydrating, pore filling, radiant, transfer resistant magic in a bottle. It's quite tricky to find more detailed user info in online reviews, so I'll play some more.
    Say Yes to this Primer
    I never post reviews about anything, which is hypocritical as I heavily rely on this, however this Primer is simply magical. Never has anything lived up to the hype like this before. Whatever miracle they have harnessed to make everyone’s makeup (regardless of skin type, age or colour) stay ALL DAY AND NIGHT is alright with me. Buy it now and you will never be shiny again. Got Milk?! Yes please.
    Best primer EVER!
    I was slightly pessimistic about all the rave reviews for this primer, I was doubtful that a primer could be THAT good. But this did not disappoint. If you have dry/normal skin then you will LOVE this! It feels so hydrating on the skin and applies nicely onto the face. It leaves a tacky feeling which I really like because then I know my foundation will stick but if you are using it as skincare then it does eventually dries down and doesn't feel sticky once dried. I tested this out on a week of work experience in London and let me tell you my foundation did not budge. Usually, I have patches of foundation that break away around my nose and forehead but not with this primer. It truly kept my makeup fully intact and I have never had a primer make a noticeable difference to my makeup longevity. If you want your makeup to last but don't want to dry your skin out this will be your new best friend!!
    Best primer ever! I love how this makes my skin look and feel (with and without makeup) This product genuinely is worth the hype, leaves your skin so hydrated and so fresh. It feels like nothing is on! I never leave reviews but this one definitely warranted it
    I knew I was going to get this when I first saw it as I had been having trouble with my skin and the claims really appealed to me. I'm so glad I did! Provides the perfect sticky base for any foundation and I can really see that this grips on my foundation, as it stops it from transferring so much from my nose when I wear glasses! It prevents my skin from getting so incredibly oily over the course of the day as it usually would, but still provides moisture. It also makes my skin look really smooth. Literally couldn't recommend it enough.
    Amazing but
    Absolutely love this primer. Feels like nothing is on your skin when you’ve got your whole face of makeup on. But it’s made me breakout on my chin and on my cheeks which are usual clear
    Lovely primer.
    Great primer, I have really dry skin and this helps to make my skin hydrated all day. Foundation looks flawless, and it really does grip foundation and is great for full coverage. No flaking or dry looking face which I get with many primers. Fab, highly recommended and will definitely repurchase.
    Literally the best primer I have ever used!! Generally does exactly what it claims to do! I will definitely be buying this again!
    This really works
    So many beauty products never live up to their name. I don't often share a review - but this product is worth it. With the trend for cream based blush and highlighter ... you really need something to help with longevity. This is it! I'm 52 and am lucky enough to have a relatively youthful complexion ... and going cream based makes it look even younger. Love this product ❤️
    Great find
    Didn’t think Milk as a brand was aimed at me being on the (seriously) wrong side of 40 but I took a chance on this. Have basically used it every day since it arrived. My dehydrated skin loves it and it truly does keep my foundation looking good for so much longer. Great find.
    The best combination!
    Milk Makeup is a rare breed in that they are cool and hip (unlike me for using words like 'cool' and 'hip') with really fun, travel-friendly packaging, AND the products are of spectacularly good quality. I'm talking as good as the luxe brands. This, their latest launch is a case in point. This is the best Primer I have ever used (for my 40 year old, dry skin) and the lack of silicone stops it and the make up on top of it straying into my smile lines through the day. It's hydrating and acts like an under-carpet to makeup, smoothing the lumps of the planks beneath :) It also makes my foundation stay on like spray paint. I am really in love with this brand, if you have older skin don't make the mistake of leaving this joy for your daughters. I highly recommend this for all makeup wearers who don't have time for touch-ups, it's bloody brilliant!
    Game changing
    Not usually one to leave reviews but never in my life have I found a product I am so entirely besotted with. I have acne prone, oily skin and this is by far the best most game changing product i have ever used. I am speechless. I will 1000% recommend this to everyone and anyone...if i don’t buy their entire stock first.
