    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

    This primer is great! The only thing I don't like is that it makes you look a little shiny, but it does give you a nice highlight. It goes on smoothly and lets your foundation stay all day. I have normal skin, so this product may not be good for oily skin.

      Normally I don't use a priner and thought I'd give this a shot. Not worth it for me. Have oily T zone and it didn't keep my make up longer and made me get oily faster.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

                How much you love this product will definitely depend on your skin type! I have oily skin so I bought this hoping that it would give me a healthy glow but not make me look too shiny once my skin's oils started to peak through during the day. This was NOT the case. Once I got oily my skin was way too shiny and the glow I had was not cute! But, I think someone with dry skin would love this product because it does give a noticeable glow to the skin. Not easy to blend straight onto the face so I recommend mixing it with foundation

                I do notice a subtle glow but the primer doesn't really help minimize pores or keep my makeup on much longer than it does without primer. I can't complain for the price point though

                  I have tried primer after primer and have not found one that actually did what it said. Heck one that did anything. NYX lumi primer is my new favorite tool for summer or when I just want to glow. Some days I just wear this so I have a nice glowing look. Totally in love!

                  This product was great giving my skin a smooth and velvety finish. It gave my skin a nice dewy finish for a nice summer glow, but did not minimize my pores like I was hoping.
