How to Use
Rated 3.24 out of 5 stars
What I use a primer for is #1) to cut down on oiliness and #2) to help reduce the amount of foundation I use, and #3) to not spend a fortune in the process. I set out to find the best primer at a reasonable cost. I tried several of the primers at Ulta that were cost efficient. THIS PRIMER won hands down! This one cut the amount of oil that I deal with tremendously - WAY above the other ones. That's why this one won. It doesn't go on as smoothly as some of the others, but that doesn't really matter when my face looks like an oil slick two hours after I apply my makeup using all the others. THIS PRIMER IS THE BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
I bought this product thinking it would work good being that ive use Milani setting spray before and it helped make my makeup last however, My skin would be so much more oily then usual and when i would blend my foundation my blemishes would just shine right through, and after a few hours of wearig my makeup would just completly slide off, mind you i have been wearing the same foundation for months now and never had this problem and i also set my face with powder every day and setting spray, This is when i realized it was the primer messing up my makeup and stopped using it and my makeup has been staying on perfectly again.

this doesn't hold up after max 2 -3 hours for me. The smell is extremely chemically when first applied and i look even more oily after it wears off. I even wear setting spray with it and it doesn't matter!

Idk how I feel about this primer. I felt like it helped my pores look smaller and my makeup look good. But, I felt like it made my face looks more oily- it says it's oil free. Definitely doesn't seem like it. Also, when I apply it's like a weird texture. You definitely have to wash your hands after applying

It's too dry, it will leave patches on your skin

It minimizes my pores but caused my foundation to wear off quicker. I thought that wasn't the point of primer.
Mila from Oregon
I was looking for a new primer and thought I'd try it out! The consistency was strange... after I applied bb cream and concealer I noticed something weird, if I touched my face my finger would just slide across!! I felt supper oily and weird. Honestly it does a good job of minimizing pores but at what cost???

I didnt find this HORRIBLE, but I also didn't find many great things about it. You get what you pay for. I don't think it did much for my skin (I have combination). It felt kind of heavy on my face honestly.

I must have bought the wrong products I thought it was something to help take care of oily skin underneath your makeup but it wasn't it's full of oil very disappointed

I love Milani as a brand, they have so many incredible products. However, this was probably the worst primer I have ever tried IN MY LIFE. I have combination skin and tend to get oily on my forehead and chin, so I thought this would be great to use in those areas to combat that. This is way too slick, it slides around your face and makes the skin feel heavy. I tried to use it over and over but it just got worse and worse. Maybe I got a defective one, I don't know, but be cautious with trying this out ESPECIALLY if your skin is sensitive.

I've tried a few primers and this is the only one that works for me as far as keeping my makeup looking good. for longer. Granted, I've only tried Revlon. and Thank me. Later. . Neither of those worked for me, but this one did work for me and I'm pretty happy with it..

I use to use NYX, but NYX was sold out so I thought I'd try it out. Milani works just as good for way cheaper. I use it under my make up and sometimes that's all I will wear to fill in pores to make my face look smooth.

I was looking for a cheaper primer and found this. I had heard good things about this product and had high hopes but unfortunately it did not work for me. After applying all over my face I let it dry and applied the same foundation I always use (Too Faced Born This Way Full Coverage). Immediately I noticed the foundation was sliding all over my face as I was applying. I was afraid I didn't let the primer dry on enough so I waited to apply the rest of my foundation. A few minutes later I continued applying and the same thing was happening... it wasn't sticking to my face. So I went ahead and did full face hoping it would correct itself. 8 hours later and my makeup had basically come off. It was not secure on my face whatsoever and I had lines, clumps, messiness. I gave this product 2 stars because I did like how a little went so far but overall I will not use again. I'm not sure if it was because of my skin, or maybe it doesn't like my foundation, idk but I did learn you get what you pay for.

I use this after I moisturize, and let it sit on my skin a few minutes before applying foundation. I find it's just as good as the high end brands.

I bought it as a duplicate primer because didn't want to spend a lot on the other primary. Well let's just say it didn't blend with my foundation and left me oily/greasy looking. This will be returned.

Does not keep me matt all day but work for about 6 hours but bummer not more then that
Jessica from Norwalk CA
This left my face oily. Did not work for me. Will be returning it
Kara from Pittsburgh
I like the product because the price cant be beat. It definitely does its job by keeping my make up matte for roughly 9 hours without setting powder, with setting powder my make up is amazing for 14 hours. After that 9 hour mark though without setting powder, your make up will melt off and your skin will feel greasy and look shiny. It feels greasy upon initial application but it absorbs so well that the greasy feeling is gone after a few minutes. I usually apply the primer then brush my teeth and by the time I am done with that its all absorbed, a little bit goes a long way with this product. I will add though that I use Laura Mercier loose setting powder and when I combine the Milani Primer and the Laura Mercier setting powder my makeup stays intact and matte.

I love this primer. It is my favorite. I tried many before finding this one. It leaves my skin soft and very smooth. Amazing product!
Bri from Williamstown, NJ
My skin gets extremely oily throughout the day. This is THE only primer that has worked for me.
Kc from Ga
This product may work if you only have a little oil in tzone however my entire face is oily and just applying the product I could tell it wouldn't do anything for the oil and I was right. I really love Milani products but this shouldn't be advertised as mattifying. It does provide a nice smooth base but that it
Julie from Moreno valley
I love how this primer makes my makeup look
Kate from Undisclosed
I am blown away by this primer! I love make-up but hate paying a small fortune for any make-up item. I used to use smash box primer but HATED the price tag. This is THE BEST dupe! It's matte without being dull, my foundation goes on smooth, and my make up stays put!
Nicole from Florida
Felt smooth on first application. After a few hours my makeup looked great/oily. When I took off my makeup later, I noticed a cluster of bumps on the areas where I applied the product
Alley from USA
I usually give everything a fair chance before I go either bashing or raving about it. But this? Nope. It's a no for me!
-Literally just liquid came out after I opened the seal for a good couple seconds...(even after shaking)
-Smells HORRID! If I want something on my face, either it needs to be something with a light scent or nothing at all!
-BREAKOUT, BREAKOUT, BREAKOUT! (Pimples are still taking forever to heal up after weeks later)
-Does mattify and keep makeup in place
-Not too thin but not too thick (compared to the ULTA matte one)
-Little goes a long way
