Lots of container - Very little product

By markil37

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Focus Primer:

NYX is a fav non-prestige brand for me, but this primer is a dud. Big mirrored compact w/separate section for the applicator sponge, however I saw the bottom of the primer container after a week of use. The primer itself performs just passably. Not worth the price.

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Focus Primer:

This was overall a disappointment. There was not a lot of product for the price and during application it felt like I needed to put a lot on my skin therefore wasting the product.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Focus Primer:

    I bought this in hopes that it would compare to Porefessional by Benefit. I was wrong. It's not even as good as Miracle Blur by L'Oreal. It didn't fill in pores or fine lines, even when I tried putting on a TON of product.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Focus Primer:

    Overall, I probably won't buy again, but it's not the worst primer ever. More than anything, it's difficult to spread. I don't like to use a lot of primer, but this doesn't blend so I feel like I have to scoop it out of the pan to get any product at all.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Focus Primer:

    I only used this a few times and could already see the bottom of the container. It felt good on my face, however, it did not increase the wear of my foundation. Was not a fan at all.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Focus Primer:

    Not sure if this primer helped with the application of my current foundation. However it really does feel nice on my face and would be nice to use alone. Would not purchase again, as you really don't get much product, at all, for the money. Purchased it on a Monday and by Friday could already see the bottom of the container!

          Fantastic!

          from St. Petersburg, Florida

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Focus Primer:

          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
