Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer:

Eh it's ok. I give it 4 because it is smooth and so easy to apply. I was hoping it would keep the oil and shine down but it doesn't quite deliver that as well as I hoped but still a good product.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer:

        I usually love NYX products but this is the exception. I have oily combination skin, and I bought this thinking that it would help cut my oil production and "kill" the shine on my chin and my cheek bones (I have glasses with big round rims and where they rest on my face tends to get oily too), but after a week I noticed that my face would get really, really oily. This and the fact that I live in a very humid climate made my foundation practically melt off of my face. I had really high hopes for this primer but honestly I felt that it would be best for someone with dry skin.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer:

          I have very oily skin and this primer just made my skin feel greasy. It was very heavy and almost felt like I was rubbing some type of Vaseline on my skin. My skin felt very oily at the end of the day with this primer and it did absolutely nothing for me, I switched to angel veil and prefer it much more.

              A great base you can use 24/7 over moisture & under foundation. Kills shine caused by oily skin. Apply over your moisturizer waiting a few minutes to apply it. Goes under powder foundation & liquid foundation for a smooth finish. Lasting all day, this is a favorite of mine with my combination skin.

              Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer:

              Its called the shine killer but doesn't last long. I have had extremely oily skin recently and I've been using milk of magnesium before my primers but I noticed with this product I can see the oil after 4 hours of wearing my makeup. The Angel Veil works wayyyyyy better. I don't recommend this for extremely oily girls or if you want your makeup to last all day.

                  I had had been using the NYX photo loving primer but ran out so I gave this a shot. At work 2 hours later, it looks like I have make up on from the day before. It's splotchy, shiny, and barely there. I tried it again the next day and noticed when I applied my make up, it seemed to never set.
