As you know I’ve been in the process of finding a new holy grail primer. And it was requested to give the brand new Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer a try. So I’ve been trying this out a lot with different foundations and then compared it against the Cover FX Gripping + Firming Primer since they have a very similar feel to them for roughly the same price. On most sites, blogs, and videos this product has gotten over four stars out of five for rating by almost every single reviewer. So that made me feel initially when purchasing this primer that it was going to be amazing. Which is why I need to ask is the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip primer worth this hype?
Last week I had a decent reaction to expired primer that I had been using on a very regular basis before hand, but it expired way before it was supposed to but I was near the end of that primer anyways. And honestly, I didn’t think that was the best one in the world but used it as I had it. So post-reaction, I got rid of it and instead picked up the Cover FX Gripping Primer as I have heard nothing but good things and it sold out the first time around. So the second launch of it, I figured I might as well put it to the test to see if it’s worth the hype.
Makeup Battle: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden vs Makeup Revolution Cut Crease Canvas Eyeshadow Base in Illustrate
I have been using Urban Decay Primer Potion for AGES as a base for my eyeshadow, which makes my eyeshadow last all day long without any noticeable wear or weird creasing. Recently Makeup Revolution has been killing it with launches to the point where they don’t really seem like dupes anymore. I mean there are still a good amount of products that are recreations but I don’t know what their cut crease eyeshadow base is supposed to be the dupe of. So I thought I would battle out the products to see which one is better or more worth it. As much as I love the primer potion, I’m not made of money so if I can save a buck and get the same result sometimes I will go for it.
I have been trying to limit the number of beauty gurus I watch on YouTube, mainly as if I watch so many videos on a similar product I tend to break my low buy. One of the gurus I still watch is Tati Westbrook and in almost every video the primer she raves about is the Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer. So I wanted to ask is this primer worth the hype?
