        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!

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

          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.

                  I love NYX products, this one just didn't work out for me :( Maybe I'm a little spoiled after switching from MAC to a more affordable option but this primer was heavy, only lasted half the day, made my face look white after application and made my skin oily and break out (but that's a personal problem) .. some products work for people while not so much for others.

                  I bought this product on a whim. I like the texture and think its a great product. However, I am olive-skinned and this primer can sometimes leave a white-ish cast on my face.

                    This is the Best Primer! The consistency allows for an easy and smooth application. I only use half a pump but I am small boned with a small face. The white color will fade as long as make sure you apply moisturizer before putting on the Primer.
                    I actually prefer NYX Primer to Hourglass. Hourglass's primer is slimey and does not work as a good base for foundation and it's VERY expensive.
