great base for foundation!

”Dupe for the MAC prep + prime skin base visage! Except this Milani primer has a “glow from within” effect while the MAC one will make you look like Edward Collins in the sun (unless you’re into that I’m not). This will be my 2nd time purchasing and I hope this product stays permanent. I have dry skin but then get oily throughout the day and night. I have tested this foundation to hell and back. Through 10-hr shifts at work to nightlife at bars and hot clubs to bedroom activities; I found that my face stayed intact through it alllll. I wear glasses so of course the foundation around my nose will fade but that’s a given. If you wear a sheer foundation you’ll notice some sparkle underneath but very subtle. I wear MAC face and body foundation, which is a natural finish so I can end up toooo glowy oil looking for my taste; blotting is necessary. Although when I wear my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, which is a matte finish, this primer gives the foundation some life while not being too flat matte. I’m usually dry around my nose and forehead and this primer smooths everything over. I don’t notice much with its ““pore minimizing”” effect tbh but still great base for foundation.”

I bought this thinking that it would be an upgrade to my Baby Skin Pore Minimizer. But sadly it doesn't meet my expectations. The formula is a bit too liquid for me and it barely fills in my pores. The "strobbing effect" only consists of chunks of glitter that doesn't melt into my skin. For now I only use this product on the high points of my cheeks to help my highlighter later on. The glitter eventually fades after putting on foundation and concealer but it doesn't help achieve a glowy or dewy look either.6 months ago
This product has big chunks of glitters. It is so obvious on the skin. I don't recommend using it on its own or as primer. If you are also going for the "dewy/glowy" effect, this is not the product for you. I"ll just give you the sparkly, glittery look. Although mixing it with your foundation will tone down the glittery look just a lil bit.8 months ago
It has really fine glitters, I guess that's the strobing part. As for pores, it doesn't do much in hiding them. But if your skin in not too much textured and you want a glowy look(rather than dewy), this might work. The longevity is quite good. Also, I'm not sure if it is just me but it does leave a really really light whitish cast, which fades away with time.8 months ago
This is a nice product, but it doesn’t go well with my 3w sunblock. It’s nice to use on its own, though. It doesn’t feel heavy at all, but I also don’t notice that much of a difference without using it. I don’t think I will repurchase this in the future.9 months ago
Mama Star made me try this as I watched his video full face using milani products only. He used this primer and he liked it so much. First time I tried this I was a bit scared of the little sparkly glitters in it that maybe it would make my make up look so dewy but when applied with my favorite foundation it’s not even visible at all. It makes my make up stay all day long I don’t even set my make up that day.10 months ago
I love how this product leaves me "sparkly" and I don't have to use a lot of it! I pair it with Ellana's mineral foundation and my skin really ends up looking good and smooth in photos. It's not exactly mattifying, so after an hour or so my face becomes oily.11 months ago
