      I have VERY oily skin and this really does control shine. It's better than Benefit Pore Professional and so much cheaper. I got it on a whim and am so glad I did.

        An employee recommended it to me for my oily skin. I wanted better coverage and she told me it would help with my skin and give me a matte finish.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

          I have shied away from wearing amy kind of makeup because my skin gets really oily in the summer. I've even limited myself to light concealer and an oil control powder; to no avail. I bought this on a whim because it was on sale. This is the best thing I've found to keep me from shining 2 hours after I apply anything. I'm look forward to trying this in conjunction with the NYX pore filler!

            I used it as a primer and also by itself and it did not last long for both. I have an extremely oily t-zone and this product worked for about 10 minutes.

              This feels like a silicone slimy mess on the skin, and doesn't help with oil at all

                  Bought this stuff because it said controls oil. It has helped combat my oily t-zone. Looks great alone or with foundation.
