      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

      I never buy myself "the good stuff". So when I finally convinced myself to splurge on what I had heard great things about... & ended up with the results that I've gotten after using this primer every day this week. Well,it's made me apprehensive about "splurging" ever again

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

          I didn't really think this primer did much other than feel like diluted Elmers Glue on my face. By day 2 I started breaking out all along the sides of my face and chin area.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

                Product has a strong chemical smell, doesn't blend well into skin, absolutely no oil control, makeup doesn't apply smoothly over top. Will not use again. If you have oily skin, stay away from this product.

                      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

                      I liked the feel and funky smell of this primer when I applied it for the first time. My BB cream went over it smoothly and all seemed well... until I looked in the mirror a couple hours later and noticed my fine lines and pores looked magnetized (they're small!) Then I noticed my face was oily (it's usually balanced!) Then there was a random pimple in the middle of my forehead when I got home that evening (my skin is clear!) I figured it was a fluke and wore it again the next day. Same thing, my skin looked aged & oily. This primer is no good!

                            With this product you need to start with a small amount and add if needed. Too much will leave behind a white finish. It did help my makeup stay put.
