    I found that this product clumped into my pores on my nose and left my foundation clumpy and blotchy on my nose.

    Careful if you have sensitive skin

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

      I was excited for this product because I've seen the awesome glow effect it creates on someone and HAD to know what they were using. However when I used it, I found that I felt very hot and when I took off my make up I was very red! Funny enough I couldn't tell until I took everything off, so this is some very interesting stuff here.

      I previously would not have considered myself to have sensitive skin. I have had similar irritations to products though over the years that have caused redness and sensitivity when I go outside, with products such as Aveeno and Olay tinted moisturizer. If you have ever experienced side effects with these products, I suggest avoiding Nyx as well.

          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.

              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).
