    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.

                  Love this primer! I have pretty dull skin, but it tends to get oily at the same time. I've always tried to stay matte with my face, but I love the look of dewy, illuminating skin. I tried this primer for a subtle illumination since I don't want to look too greasy, and WOW. I LOVE IT! it give a natural glow to my skin that subtle and compliments my highlight beautifully. I'm still on my first bottle, so I'm not sure if this impression will last. But so far I'm LOVING it!

                    I've only used this 3 or 4 times, but I have to say I do notice a difference in how my makeup looks. Nyx is proof that you don't have to shell out 40 dollars for a primer. I picked this up because it's illuminating and my skin looks absolutely dead and dull in the winter. My makeup goes on great, and while it's not full of glitter and sparkles, it is pearlescent which has given me just enough of a glow. Note that it is a bit thick, but it blends into the skin really well. Will definitely be rebuying.
