    DON'T LET THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS DETER YOU!!! If you have enlarged pores, this product is right for you. I'd only recommend that if you purchase this, and you have dry, flaky skin, make sure you don't place it over flakes. It's not a lotion, it's a primer. Exfoliate adequately....which everyone should do anyways.
    honestly almost every beauty related video I've seen where people apply makeup, they GROSSLY over use primer. Primer isn't lotion. It shouldn't be used as such. Now, if you use this primer properly, you'll see how amazing it can perform! Rub a bit between your index fingers to warm it up a bit, then gently press it into your pores. You can rub it up and down and finish by patting it in. It makes my pores completely vanish! It's an amazing product! Less is more ladies and gentlemen......less....IS.....more. --x0

          I loved this product. Putting this on alone I noticed a big difference in my complexion. Only thing is I do wish it had more product, on 3rd us I can see the bottom of the compact.

          (skin type, oily, fair, redness, acne scares, sensitive, large pores, and often irritated and flaky)
          I read the bad reviews, but still bought this product. It just reminded me so much of one of the OG primers I used way back when primers where rare (mid to late 90's i think). It was Magix form avon, and was a slightly pink balm primer that I loved so much. My sister hated it though so it could just be my skin that loves it, everybodies is going to react differently to the same product, that's why there are so many prettys to play with. However, I find this a perfect dupe for my beloved, discontnued primer. It mattifes, fills in my pores, evens my skin texture, and makes my makeup last 10 hours through my 16 hour work shifts( yay, nursing!). Which is way better than I get with most other primers I own. (about 12 both high end and drugstore, my friends call me the goldylocks of makeup, always looking for "just right") However like many things in the world of makeup, it does have a learning curve. I don't use the sponge, I find it usless and messy. I think a lot of the balling up comes from the way the sponge applies product; and that the product really needs the warmth of your fingers to properly melt into your skin. I use just the smallest amount on my fingertips and rub into my problem areas. (T zone, nose, cheeks, forehead) Of course why it's packaged with a sponge if thats a really hard way to apply it best is anyones guess.

            i can not use dimethicone or silocone primers, they give me instant breakouts. I can't believe I found this inexpensive NYX primer. As far as performance goes, it is not the best primer I have ever used. But, it still does a great job. My makeup went on smoothly and as the day went on it stopped a lot of the oxidation in my foundation that i usually get. Probably because the cornstarch in it absorbed my oil. My biggest tip is to use a very light hand with it. I will no longer be searching for a different primer.

                There aren't many makeup products that I outright throw away but this is one of them. I even let my mother see if she wanted it but she wanted to throw it away too. I literally saw no difference between each side of the face. It felt like I had smeared vaseline on. I really like some of NYX's other products, but this one was a total miss.
