    Works great on my skin and does not cause it to break out. Helps to prep my skin to make the foundation blend better and look smoother. Does exactly what it is meant to do. Great product.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

    This wasn't love or hate for me.
    I didn't notice anything spectacular, but it did hold my foundation better than the elf hydrating primer I had been using in a pinch.
    As for the illuminating aspect, I've used other primers that did a better job.
    It did leave my skin soft, though!

        This was so disappointing. Was not illuminating at all, super heavy and sticky. Not to mention it made my foundation cake up and patchy. Definitely a no-go for me

            I fell in live with this primer the first time I used it. I had acne prome, dry skin and I wear makeup daily and personality like a dewy look. As soon as I put it's n my skin glowed. It noticeably made my skin look smoother and seemed to blend away the look of my acne marks. My foundation looks flawless on top. I will repurchase as soon as I run out.

                Hoping it would deflect from acne but it was not very hydrating and was flaky on my skin.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

                Eh, it's alright. Considering the other primers that NYX has in a similar price range, I had pretty high expectations. I find that it works alright, but I don't know too much of a difference with this under my foundation. I also cannot get over the smell/texture. I feel like I'm rubbing Elmer's glue all over my face every morning!! Ultimately, I'd pick several other of NYX's primers before this one.
