      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Soft Focus Tinted Primer:

      Update to a previous review: I liked it at first but after a while I really started to dislike it. There are not enough shades, so if your skin is relatively pale (I'm a MAC NC15), the fairest color may still get a bit too dark and ruddy. The main reason why I stopped liking it is that it really emphasizes your dry patches. My skin used to be quite oily, but as I've taken steps to address my oily skin (lower pH cleansers and toners, using oils good for oily skin as my night moisturizer), this really has started to look hideous on me as my skin is more "normal" and balanced now. If you have oily skin, are not very pale, and don't like the heaviness of foundation, this may work well for you. Otherwise, stay away.

      Started Out Great...

      By EthneDragon

      from Chantilly, VA

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Soft Focus Tinted Primer:

      I had such high hopes for this. I'm a very simple day to day makeup wearer. I love my pale skin and freckles, so something light and easy like a tinted primer sounded perfect! Oh how disappointed I've become. Initially the product applies well, blending out easily. But as the day wore on, it broke down and cracked/separated on my skin. I tried it 3 times and applied it 3 different ways to see if it was just an application issue. Nope, same results.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Soft Focus Tinted Primer:

          The lightest shade was way too dark for my fair skin! It applied as a streaky crumbly mess and my foundation looked so terrible I wiped it off and just went barefaced! if I could give this 0 stars I would. Plus my face was instantly itchy! Returned.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Soft Focus Tinted Primer:

          This is a great choice if you don't have time for foundation (time to make sure your skincare sets, then your primer, then foundation). It provides light but buildable coverage and did a decent job at covering acne, though for trouble spots you can just use concealer also. It dries down very matte, which I like because I have oily skin, but be sure not to skip your moisturizer. This is a better option for easy, natural coverage for oily skinned folks like me than a tinted moisturizer or BB cream which always just sits on the surface of my skin and is too moist or tacky.

          Note also that I bought this in the fairest shade and was afraid when I squeezed it out that it'd be too dark, but it is a good match. For reference I'm about a MAC NC15-20.

            This primer is literally my new holy grail. It is photoshop in a bottle. It blurs everything so beautiful, its lightweight. Its a soft matte finish, but doesn't cling to dry patches. Great coverage. It really does blur all of your imperfections and I cannot stop raving about this. It's great to use as a primer and even on its own with no foundation. I have serious acne scars, some acne, and large pores around my nose and under my eyes and this just smooths and covers everything so beautifully. Don't sleep on this, you absolutely need it!

              Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Soft Focus Tinted Primer:

              I'm always worried whenever I try new face products that they'll be too dark for me because I'm so pale, and when I squeezed it out onto my fingers the first time and swiped it on my face I thought it was going to be too dark, but then I totally and seamlessly disappeared as soon as I started rubbing it in. I have some acne scarring and small pits, some large pores, bumps and some acne and I really noticed an immediate difference when I put this on my trouble areas. It doesn't look like you are wearing any makeup after but it definitely improves the appearance of your skin. I put some concealer on my acne and dark spots, and a little NYX no filter powder and didn't need to bother with foundation. I can't really speak to the longevity of wear yet, but so far I really like this product. I haven't tried other NYX primers so I can't compare but so far I like this more than the Laura Mercier primer I used to use.

                  This is a great primer. I feel like it makes my foundation last much longer and not get patchy throughout the day. You could also just wear it alone to blur imperfections. I haven't used the UD Optical Illusion primer, but from what I've seen on youtube this might be a dupe.
