      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

      Works really well. I use this as my everyday primer. My skin always gets oily in certain spots no matter what I do. So I bought this to give it a try and it works great. My makeup stays looking awesome all day and I don't get oily in my T-zone like I did before I started using this. It's light, it feels good on my face and does what it says it will do. Great product that I will be keeping on hand from now on!

        Used this for graduation makeup because it was outside in 90+ degrees and of course everyone wants photos after. Wore under setting spray and setting powder but had used it the day before over makeup during work outside in similar heat and worked great both ways.

        I have very oily skin. This product does what it says- kills oily shine but doesn't make your face overly dull. Best shine control I've ever used.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

          After only about an hour of wearing, my foundation starts to break up on my nose. I've tried this primer with three different foundations and it did the same thing. Only pro is it did make my face less oily.

              I've never tried a primer before, so I have nothing to compare this too but so far it works pretty good at making my powder foundation last a little longer throughout my day

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

                  This was totally useless. I have very oily skin, so I need some serious shine control. This did nothing. It may have even made me look MORE oily and made my makeup slip around more. It also broke me out, though all products with dimethicone (so most primers) seem to do that. I've had the same experience with the NYX Photo-Finish primer (the green one), so maybe it's just NYX's primer formula or something. I ended up giving this to a friend to try just for kicks and giggles, because I had no use for it whatsoever. Definitely would not recommend.

                  However, it's a very slippery, silicone-y primer and did feel very smooth. To some degree, it did seem to help makeup glide on upon initial application. I have no idea about primers for dry skin, but if you like a silicone-type primer at a reasonable price, this might be one to try if you're not sensitive to the ingredients. That's basically the only reason I gave it more than one star.
