      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

      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.

          I normally apply sunscreen lotion first then my acne medicine lotion then the primer. My face still feels lightweight and natural

          Subtle enough that it can be used alone or under foundation, though it does get a bit greasy after 8 hours on my skin. I like it for light makeup days, just apply this and spot conceal for a natural, fresh complexion.

            Really pretty product, I just didn't like how it settled on my skin and looked greasy. It's really nice as a highlighter and great around eyes, just not a great primer.

              I'm interested in finding a primer that I can wear daily to work as opposed to the ones I wear to go out in. I don't want to spend the money on a high dollar primer for daily use. So far this one works well and I like it. I've only had it a week and I've used it twice.
