      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

      I have fairly normal/sometimes dry skin. I needed a primer, and I happened to grab this one without really doing any research. NYX is usually pretty reliable, so I figured this would be, if not good, at least wearable until I could get something better. No. It isn't. It goes onto the skin completely white, and doesn't ever entirely fade. It smells strongly of baby powder mixed with Elmer's glue, which is actually probably my favorite thing about this product. It keeps my foundation separated from my skin, which makes every foundation I own look like it's been caked onto my face like spackle. After a couple of hours, the area around my nose becomes oily and the foundation seems to have sunken into the slightly larger pores that I have in that area. I have to constantly apply powder to the area just to keep me from looking like I'm 15 again. I am almost guaranteed to break out after using this unless I use a deep cleansing scrub, astringent, and clearing mask as soon as I take it off. I'm sure NYX has cheaper primers that are significantly better, but this is an obscene miss.

                        I have sensitive acne-prone and combination skin-type (everything that sucks). It is very difficult for me to find a primer that not only accommadations my skin condition but also it must go on smooth, lightweight, with a bit of tint (for everyday use without foundation/bb creams), and makes my skin glow/dewy when topped with foundation/bb cream. I had found one - the Rimmel Fix & Perfect primer - but since it is no longer in production, I had to search for an inexpensive alternative that would do that job. NYX has always produced the best drugstore brand that could compete against the department store brands. But this particular primer was not as expected. Like other reviewers, the product came out white and thick, and smelled like glue. Once on the face, it was hard to blend and heavy, but it did have a nice glow. Putting on foundation was a bit difficult, it wasn't blending or absorbing into the primer. It felt too cake-y and dry so I sprayed on rose toner to help the products look more dewy and smooth. But after the first hours, my face was extremely oily. I constantly pat off the oil with oil-absorption sheets. I will be returning this product.
