Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

I use this everyday as a base for my consealer & foundation. Goes on really nice and smooth, but will dry out fairly quickly. Must work fast when applying Consealer and foundation, and/or apply another layer. It's very cost effective, which out weighs the bad.

    Love this product. I have severely oily skin and although it doesn't eliminate the shine all day long. It does make a significant difference in my shiny face for most of the day.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

      I am VERY oily - like five minutes after washing my face I'm an oil slick - so I really wanted a mattifying primer to help keep my foundation on - so far I hadn't found anything that would really work. I'm still trying this one out with several different foundations to see what formula will work best, but it seems to be fighting the good fight. I still have to blot a couple of times a day, but it's not as bad as it would be otherwise.
