How to Use
Rated 4.39 out of 5 stars
I've searched high and low for a primer that was both silicone AND dimethicone free and this is one of the few out there. All those "cones" clog my pores and break me out and they are in virtually EVERY other primer out there in one form or another.
This has a bouncy, jelly-like texture which surprised me at first. I wasn't sure how it was going to be on my skin.
In the past, these formulations typically would ball up on my face and give my makeup a "mottled look."
NOT THIS ONE! Using only a small amount, I apply all over my face, quickly, and then pat. I follow with my PUR Selfie Foundation after waiting 2 minutes and the results are outstanding. I have seen no breakouts, clogged pores, or those annoying little whiteheads My makeup stays put in the humid Georgia weather and my skin looks amazing. Thank you NYX!
This is the worst primer ever. I bought this because it was cheaper and reviews from certain influencers said it was amazing. Bottom line, you can't always listen to what all those famous makeup influences have to say. Go by real life reviews. This primer feels awful on my face. I used it for two weeks to give it a chance. It leaves my face feels sticky, and after applying the rest of my makeup (concealer, foundation, etc.) Everything started to separate and look awful on my face. I've used the same products for years and this has never happened with my usual primers. I'll stick with my Benefit POREfessional primer.

This is a good primer. Not too thick, very cooling to the skin. Seems to do the good job with helping my foundation go on smoothly and stay on throughout the day.

I bought this after being disappointed with the too faced hangover primer because it doesn't make my face look cakey! I have oily skin and this primer works beautifully with Mac fix plus.

This is a difficult review to write. I'll start with saying that this primer is bomb- when it comes to priming the skin. My makeup looks smooth and flawless, it's definitely hydrating and creates a great base that holds foundation and concealer down like magic. Zero pores or texture. I haven't had issues with acne since I started using a retinoid and taking spiro about a year ago. Three weeks ago my skin looked INCREDIBLE, maybe the best it ever has….and right now it is an absolute mess. I picked this up wanting to try a new primer, and have since noticed a huge increase in zits. All different kinds of them, even the painful ones. This product is a dream otherwise but I'm not willing to sacrifice my skin for it. I'll be running back to Tatcha silk canvas and begging for forgiveness, right after I make a sad return.

I wanted to like this primer, I really tried - for weeks. The hydration was great, and not too much for my skin, but it still somehow managed to highlight every single pore in my face as soon as I put my liquid foundation on. I tried using different amounts but no matter how much primer or foundation I use I always get the same result. Close, but it's a no from me.

I loved this primer but the packing is so wasteful and the price isn't worth the amount you get. If these issues were fixed, it'd be my favorite.

Please make this with tube packaging. This is one of my holy grail primers. It's every bit as good as the Milk primer. I love it. Super grippy, lightweight, and long lasting.
Ana from Massachusetts
I have extremely dry skin and this is the only primer I've tried that works to keep my makeup on and smooth!
Ara from san diego
This product is amazing , I gave it a chance and...wow.....did not disappoint me
Mindy from Pittsburgh
My skin is a DESERT. It gets so dry throughout the day, especially when I wear makeup (almost every day!) This stuff is incredible! This is the holy grail of moisturizers for me and I have even tried high end/prestige brands. This really keeps your skin hydrated and keeps makeup from cracking/drying. I'll continue buying this for a long time!

I love this product. I have dry skin and this product feels amazing and creates a visibly smoother surface. I love it under makeup or on its own. It makes my skin look fresh and supple, and it feels like nothing is on!
GemRevenge from USA
I have seriously dry skin and by the middle of the day my makeup is always separating and flaking off in chunks. This has helped so much with that! My makeup stays in place all day and doesn't flake anymore when I use this.
Carrie from St.Louis
Works great and moisturizing too!
Angela from South Carolina
This product works really well for drier skin and under water-based foundations. This primer is water based so you may find that a silicone based primer works better under silicone based foundations, but this one works well under any water based foundation. It's very hydrating and the consistency is totally unique! It also feels great on the skin (especially if you refrigerate it). It has been a summer staple for me.

I truly have combo skin. Easily dried out and flaky while simultaneously being very oily in the T-zone. This makes it very difficult for me to find any product that works with my skin whether it's a cleanser, moisturizer, or makeup. I've used this primer all week and have had ZERO ill effects. No separation with my foundation (smashbox studio skin). No breakouts (hallelujah). My makeup has stayed in place all day without melting off. And on the flip side the product doesn't dry out my skin either. Could not ask for more from this product.
Anum from Houston, Texas
This stuff is so cool. I've never tried the Milk Hydrogrip, but I heard so many good things about this product that I just had to try it. The consistency yes, it's a little weird at first but you definitely get used to it. I personally love how it gets a little tacky, it ensures that my makeup will stay in place. After I put this stuff on my skin feels plump, hydrated, and looks radiant. My makeup sits wonderfully on top of it. After I go in with this, I use a silicone-type primer on my pores and the rest of my T-ZONE. So not only does it pair well with foundations/tinted moisturizers, but you can most definitely layer it with OTHER primers!
Okie from Oklahoma
Reminds me of jello. Slightly sticky when first applied but dries beautifully. It is hydrating, make up wears great over it.
Yvanna from Tucson az
This is very comparable to the milk hydro grip
Sarah from Michigan
It's nice, nothing super spectacular. I don't find it anymore hydrating than my cheaper drug store primers. The texture is weird.
CapricornLady from Indiana
It does what it says. I bought this after not liking Milk gel primer(makes my make up oxide too quick). It wore well all day under my Estee Lauder double wear foundation.
Ash from NY
This completely made my make up separate and some how made my foundation cling to spots I didn't have any dry patches on, idk it was weird. Tried it a few times with several foundations, yet the same result. Whenever I'd first apply it was a few mins after letting my sunscreen set, and what do you know it would make my sunscreen move around and like almost re-activate it after it had dried down. No matter how long I waited for my sunscreen to set, this primer would grip it and have it move around as if I was reapplying my sunscreen again. Also tried it with different sunscreens to see if that was the issue. Yet the same outcome once I applied my foundation, it made my foundation patchy. Really wanted to like this, it just did not work for me and my skin.
YRed from Houston
This primer is pretty great at hydrating my skin, but also keeping my foundation from drying. It's a bit sticky when you put it on, and it takes a while to dry. Overall, I love it and will continue to use it.
QueenMV20 from Yucaipa,CA
Awesome primer for a good deal. My face felt so good and I tend to get oily on my T-Zone area and this primer eliminated that the entire day. Get it!!!! No regrets!
Samantha from Massachusetts
comes off completely on a mask, worse than any other primer I have ever used.
not that cheap to so easily come off.

TS from Macomb
This primer is very hydrating and light. Also very smooth application. Another thing is the price point is pretty good.
