      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Soft Focus Primer:

      I love how this primer feels, it fills in my pores without clogging them. My only complaint is that there is only .21 oz in the whole compact, I used it 5 times before hitting pan. I won't be re-purchasing this.

      Smelled like skunk. Didn't leave it on for very long to see how it worked because I couldn't handle the smell.

            This is a waste of money. There is barely any product in the compact but you expect there to be more. No significant improvement in smoothness of my skin compared to other similar products that are a better deal.

                Honestly does not work at all. Dries out pretty quickly and gets a clumpy powder like texture if you don't use soon enough.

                    Tried using the sponge that came with it, but it's the a good sponge. Too much goes into the sponge. The product did no spread well and there isn't really much in the container.

                    I love, love, love how this primer feels on. It's so smooth and really feels like it evens out your skin for a nice flat surface for your makeup. The container it comes in really isn't ideal though... I've only used it three times and I already see the bottom of the pan. The applicator doesn't seem ideal for applying this... it seems to soak up a lot of the product. I'd definitely buy this again but only use it for special occasions.

                          I liked using this primer, it served me well for a few long days and special events. However, either the included sponge soaked up product or the pan wasn't anywhere near big enough to use on your whole face. Only got three uses before I hit pan. It's almost cheap enough that I don't care, but not quite.
