    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

    I used this product as a primer under foundation and then powder. Big mistake. The primer then foundation collects in my pores and created a tiny dotted effect that looks incredibly greasy halfway through the day. Yuck! But, if I simply use the primer, then powder, I'm good until about 2pm, then I have to reapply powder. So that's not terrible. I'll use it.

      I could tell a (good) difference in my face when using this product, but doesn't kill the shine for a long time.

        I love the coverage and how it blends with my DS foundation, but after a couple of hours you can feel the oil build up, BUT it won't show.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

          Not long lasting.
          Probay most effective with reapplication to reduce shine, but that is only desirable if you wear a lot of cream/liquid based products.
          Not helpful to reapply over powder products.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

              I have a pretty oily face and before I used this by the end of the day my face would look super shiny even after blotting it 2-3 times. After only using a little of this on my T-zone, my face barely had a hint of shine - still looked like how I applied my makeup in the morning (even after sweating a lot in the sun). Only have to retouch my powder foundation once! Totally would buy this again.

                I bought this because I have normal/combination skin and I thought it'd be good for my T-zone. It doesn't do anything for my skin.
