      ...I would recommend using only on the parts you want to glow or you'll just end up with a shiny face.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Illuminating Primer:

        As someone with oily skin, I was slightly hesitant to buy an "illuminating" primer for fear of looking even shinier. However, this primer has really impressed me. It gives me a lovely glow without making me appear oily. I am fairly new to primers, but this one has done exactly what I would expect from a primer. It also does a good job of prolonging my makeup. Two thumbs up for this primer!

          I spend tons/tons/tons on make-up. I am no guru or youtube 'exceptionare'; i've just always had a hand for glam. I am a nursing student and put in long hour hospital shifts & then take myself to a night shift at my other job. With that said, I need to be hydrated all day long. One day on my shift, I entered the bathroom (which you know is sooooooo bright) and my face looked filthy. To me, this was unacceptable, considering the price I pay for Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. After googling scenarios as to why this was happening, I learned that I was not exfoliating well enough, moisturizing properly, and I wasn't priming at all. I stumbled upon this primer while on my 'primer-hunt' and it changed my life. After my moisturizer sets in, I apply this all over my face (minus eyelids) before putting on my liquid foundation. I let my skin soak up this product and dry just till' it feels like satin. I love this product so much, I couldn't live without it now and I obviously should not have been living without it before. I have had the same tube for about two months now, and I am nowhere near finished. I don't wear a full face of makeup every day, but before I start packing it on, this product goes first!

          It's a white substance. I don't see any difference. I will continue to look for a better one.
