          This product left my face with full blown raised hives for 3 plus days. If you have sensitive skin or skin allergies even at the slightest level, I would seriously not recommend. Please be cautious before buying. I would recommend the Angel veil primer if you are looking for a primer from Nyx.

            I bought it and then after reading the reviews it made me hesitant to try it, but then I gave it a try and I really like
            it! I have oily skin and it made my make up look even all day long, I used it with NYX make up setter spray also. I would recommended to everyone

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

            the consistency feels rather thick and left a filmy white layer on my skin which made the finishing result of my makeup seem off tone. not for skin that's not fair tone. however, it did provide a solid base

            The product is white and goes on clear. I feel like applying the product to face is not smoothly and you have to work to blend the product in your skin. There's a certain odor, but I have gotten used to it.

                I have fairly normal/sometimes dry skin. I needed a primer, and I happened to grab this one without really doing any research. NYX is usually pretty reliable, so I figured this would be, if not good, at least wearable until I could get something better. No. It isn't. It goes onto the skin completely white, and doesn't ever entirely fade. It smells strongly of baby powder mixed with Elmer's glue, which is actually probably my favorite thing about this product. It keeps my foundation separated from my skin, which makes every foundation I own look like it's been caked onto my face like spackle. After a couple of hours, the area around my nose becomes oily and the foundation seems to have sunken into the slightly larger pores that I have in that area. I have to constantly apply powder to the area just to keep me from looking like I'm 15 again. I am almost guaranteed to break out after using this unless I use a deep cleansing scrub, astringent, and clearing mask as soon as I take it off. I'm sure NYX has cheaper primers that are significantly better, but this is an obscene miss.
