      I've never tried a primer before, so I have nothing to compare this too but so far it works pretty good at making my powder foundation last a little longer throughout my day

        Doesn't control oil at all AND broke me out!

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

          This was totally useless. I have very oily skin, so I need some serious shine control. This did nothing. It may have even made me look MORE oily and made my makeup slip around more. It also broke me out, though all products with dimethicone (so most primers) seem to do that. I've had the same experience with the NYX Photo-Finish primer (the green one), so maybe it's just NYX's primer formula or something. I ended up giving this to a friend to try just for kicks and giggles, because I had no use for it whatsoever. Definitely would not recommend.

          However, it's a very slippery, silicone-y primer and did feel very smooth. To some degree, it did seem to help makeup glide on upon initial application. I have no idea about primers for dry skin, but if you like a silicone-type primer at a reasonable price, this might be one to try if you're not sensitive to the ingredients. That's basically the only reason I gave it more than one star.

          I liked it at first...

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

          I really liked the product at first. However i later realized that this primer does not last all day. My makeup will become oily and crease after a few hours. The quality isn't the best. But the price isn't bad. If you're going for an all day look, don't go for this primer.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

          I really liked this at first. It is super Matte and gets rid of all the oil on your face. However this primer made me realize I'm not oily. I am actually have more combination skin. This made my chin dry out so bad that my skin was peelin and I broke out. My face was really sore. I probably won't re-buy this. It's too much work just applying it to certain parts of my face and then using another primer for the others.

              This product acted more like a shine "enhancer" than a shine "killer". Totally worthless
