      • oily or very oil skin

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

      I have very, very oily skin...the kind that no foundation survives for more than a couple of hours w/o special care. I switched from Hourglass Veil to NYX Shine Killer and am thrilled! This is my routine: apply NYX SK, dust wHD silica powder, apply foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear) and blush, spray w/Wet/Wild setting spray, dust again w/HD powder. This routine WORKS to mostly keep my foundation on my face...and while I got decent results w/Hourglass, I get even better results w/NYX. NYX ACTUALLY stops shine on my face for at LEAST 4-6 hours (depending on condition). Hourglass did not. I usually now only blot ONCE a day using this product (vs. 3-4 x using Hourglass). The price is AWESOME, too. I LOVE this product.

          I like this product and i would probably buy it again. I use this in addition to the matte finish setting spray and I really enjoy the outcome. My foundation glides on smoothly and my makes up lasts for hours.

            After a few hours of work(waitressing), my face always looks super oily. I use this as a primer and my face doesn't look half as oily as it normally does by the end of the night.

              I was looking for a product that would kill the oil in my t-zone through out the entire day. This product helped tremendously and is easy to apply. Its also light weight and my skins feels silky smooth.

                I have oily skin, so this primer helps so much to minimize the oily look before putting on foundation. Sometimes I just wear the primer by itself.

                      I used it as a primer because I have combination/oily skin and by the 4th hour I was a greaseball. I won't ever purchase this again. It has been tough finding a shine killer and this just didn't do the job either.
