    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

    I have normal to dry skin with some shine on my T-zone, so I used this product in order to reduce oil. Simply put, it doesn't work. The formula isn't strong enough. My shine goes down but doesn't stay matte no matter how many times I reapply or how long I wait for it to dry. I got this product on sale, and I am very glad I did not pay full price.

            This is my holy grail primer! I have a very oily t-zone and this product keeps any oil from coming through my foundation. It's amazing! It also minimizes the appearance of my pores! This product only works if you use it the right way so here are some tips for you:
            1)A little goes a long way! When I first used this product it made my skin look even more greasy! I was using too much. Use very small amounts!
            2)Don't be fooled by the texture! This product feels as if you are literally putting oil on your face! idk why but it does. So don't be fooled! its not greasy at all!

            You must buy this product it is AMAZING!!!!!

              Shine Killer is a great primer that keeps my makeup from getting shiny as the day wears on. It applies smoothly and helps my foundation to flow on smooth and with even coverage.

              T-zone

                    I will use this on my face before spraying Smashbox water primer. I just put a small amount on my finger and spread it on my t-zone. I have combo skin but sometimes lead more to the dryer side. So I use a luminous foundation and sometimes by the end of the day I look too dewey. This does not make my face entirely mat but it does help so I don't look too oily by the ends of the day.

                      I use this primer every day under my foundation. Really reduces shine -- I used to be powdering my nose (and forehead and chin) multiple times daily, but now only need a couple very light touch ups thru the entire day. My forehead and chin especially are less shiny, less often.

                                Great product! I had to learn how to use it though. In the beginning I had a tendency to put to much, which caused the opposite effect from what I was trying to get. Once I figured out that you need very little I loved it.
