        I love this primer! Lately I've noticed that my t-zone area looks very oily after I apply my makeup, so I figured I'd give this primer a try and I wasn't disappointed :)

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

          I have really oily skin, especially on my nose and forehead. I'm not someone that usually uses a primer because I always felt like it would make me oilier more quickly. This did just that. I applied it, and when I used a beauty blender to put my foundation on, it left some spots on my cheeks, nose, and forehead patchy, almost like there was no foundation there. I went about my day, and of course became very oily. Tried it again a few more times and the same thing happened.

          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.

                  Nothing good about it. No shine control just extra oil slick
