      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

      I feel like I have tried every primer out there. I have very oily skin, so a good primer is important to me... Ive used smashbox, benefit, MAC bobbi brown, ect, and this CHEAP primer beats them all. My makeup stays put all day. The only thing I could complain about is the color, it does make my face a little white once its applied, but it is easily coveres by my foundation. Best primer Ive everused and believe me, I have used ALOT!

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

            I have used many primers..all of which I don't bother to re-purchase. Well this has impressed me thus far. I used a half of a pump..and applied only to my t-zone after moisturizer. My makeup lasted literally through an 8 hour work day at the hospital, a mild workout, a dog walk, and dinner, and a trip to the mall! Haha! (With one small touch up in between using a bit of powder)! For reference I have combination skin with rare breakouts.
            It is thick, and definitely needs to dry before makeup application. I hope this doesn't break me out and ruin my excitement! Try it!

              I use a light, oil-free moisturizer first and let it sink in for a few minutes. Then I use one pump for my whole face and neck, it may not seem like enough but it is (if you need more only use a half pump extra). I then allow for the primer to sink in for a few minutes. I go on to apply my foundation with a sponge then my concealer. I set the whole thing with NYX translucent HD mineral powder. It all leaves my skin looking like porcelain. I love that it is made with minerals and free from oils, parabens, and talc.

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

                  This primer did not work well for me. It is pretty thick and very white. It doesn't blend very well at all and leaves me looking pale. It also does not seem to smooth anything out on my skin. Compared to other primers I have, it leaves my foundation looking caked on and very unnatural. I will be returning this product.

                    I was excited to try this product but as soon as I put it on, it clumped together on my face and wouldnt apply evenly. I immediately returned it.

                        A:

                        We recommend NYX Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder, a finely-milled, high-definition face powder that, once applied, deflects light, reduces the appearance of pores and smoothes your complexion:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3460301

                        HD powders provide a flawless, diffused, poreless look to the skin in all lighting, perfect for close-up photography. Highlighting powders/creams are applied to the cheekbones, nose, and brows to add definition to and illuminate those areas of the face; to contour for a slimmer, more defined look.
