This goes on well, but once you put foundation over it, the illumination doesn't really come through for that "dewy" look.

Working Fine BUT Won't Buy Again

    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

    I bought the product because I was looking to try a new everyday primer with a little glow. I picked this one because it gave me about twice the amount of my current one (L'oreal Lumi Primer) for roughly the same price. It's a little stickier than I like, but has a nice very subtle shimmer and lasts the day. Probably going to go back to my previous primer because this one isn't doing anything better, and I got way more compliments using the other.

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

      I just finished my first full bottle of this product, and I have to say I'm impressed. If you like a more glowing, dewy look, this a good and affordable primer. I also noticed that I have significantly less creasing in my smile lines when I wear this beneath my makeup, and I get compliments all the time on how glowy and smooth my face looks. Would absolutely purchase again!

          Great for everyday on the tops of cheekbones with or without foundation. A staple on no-makeup days! Wonderful dupe for MAC Strobe Cream (pearl, maybe, can't remember the shade).

                When I was told by a friend that it wasn't the best for oily skin I thought eh, ,can't be that bad. But as soon as I put it on the next morning I felt oily and really greasy. It just does not feel good at all. For dry skin, it may be a different story.
