Milk Makeup’s Hydro Grip primer has a gel formula that makeup grips to like glue while leaving skin hydrated. The unique formula contains a variety of hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, blue agave, hemp seed extract, aloe water, vitamin B3 and B5 to smooth and nourish the skin. Milk Makeup’s primer is both silicone-free and oil-free, making it perfect for all skin types. The hydro grip primer comes in a clear plastic pump, it is available in two sizes 0.33 oz./ 10 ml and 1.52 oz./ 45 ml.


Here’s Moira’s YBB Rating for dry skin

Looking for a primer that grabs your makeup and keeps it in place, try the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip primer. The primer has a light-weight formula that has a tacky feel. I found the primer holds my makeup in place really well and provides my skin with only minor hydration. In my opinion, this primer will work for all skin types, but if you have dry skin, I recommend wearing a good moisturizer under the primer for added hydration. You get a lot of product for the price, and a little goes a long way, so I would say it is a great value for the price. I highly recommend trying this primer.

Here’s Natassia’s YBB Rating for oily skin

I have struggled for a long time to find a primer that will actually keep my powder foundation in place, so I was pleasantly surprised when the Milk Makeup hydro grip primer actually did. The primer has a gel-like consistency that glides on at first and dries to a tacky finish. Makeup application is smooth, and it really grips to the primer like glue. By the end of the day, my powder foundation is still visibly there, and my skin still feels hydrated when I remove my makeup. The hydro grip primer even does a decent job of masking any oiliness in the T-zone. This primer will definitely work for all skin types; it has no real scent to it and has a light-weight formula that won’t clog your pores. I am in love with this primer; I definitely recommend the hydro grip primer, especially if you wear powder foundations.

Consistency: Thick, tacky gel

Feel: Tacky to the touch after a few seconds

Scent: No real noticeable scent

Hydration: By the end of the day, skin feels as hydrated as before application

Results: Makeup really grips to primer and stays put all-day

Skin types: All skin types

Value: Great value for the price

Worked as expected: Way better than expected 

Pros: Makeup grips to face and stays put all-day

Cons: None
