          I use the Shine Killed as a primer, before I put on my makeup, to reduce the Shine. Works great!

            It is humid where I live and this keeps me soooo matte! I also use a matte foundation, but I have for a long time and did not notice a difference in my skin until I changed my primer. This will stay in my routine!

              My face is an oily shiney mess. So obviously I wanted to purchase something that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg, and that would keep my make up looking nice and matte throughout the day. Now obviously considering how oily my skin is, I wasn't expecting this product to completely change my life but just tone it down a little ya feel? And if I read something that says "shine killer" I'm gonna wanna try it. And well that was a mistake. This literally made my make up look like it was melting off after 2 hours of wearing it, I was soo confused! I literally had to blot 4 times a day and by then end of the day my make up was already completely off. Its terrible, I'm definitely returning it.

                Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer:

                Used this for a client with oily skin. Next day she asked what the first thing I put on her was. When i explained this and why I used it she said "my makeup never lasted that long, and it looked so smooth! (she's easily prone to breakouts) and said the makeup didn't irritate her skin because of the primer. Kept shine to a minimum for several hours.

                      I have tried to do everything possible with this product to make it work and nothing I do is going to make this work. For an oil control primer, it does the exact opposite - I look like I literally bathed my face in grease. It can't even hold up for 2 hours! I'm not even that oily and I look literally wet in my t-zone. This product is a total fail and it sucks because I wanted it to work so bad. No matter how you pat, rub, blend, press, all methods, it just doesn't work.

                        This thing was awful. I'm oily but not even that oily! After a few hours with this I went to look in the car mirror and omg it's like a layer of grease all over my face. So sad because I was excited about it.
