Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

This product did help me with my shine issue, I tend to get oily after a few hours of makeup but with the shine killer I had no shine the whole day I wore it so it did do what it was suppose to but I did notice after 3 days of using it daily I started to break out a little from my forehead so I would just stick to it for special occasions not a daily anymore.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

    I bought this primer in hopes that it would actually kill my shine, which is a tall order with my extremely oily skin. It started out feeling great, but I should have known that something wasn't right when it never truly felt like it set, or sunk in. It just kind of sat on top of my skin all day and felt gooey. It's loaded with silicones, and it doesn't seem to have that necessary mattifying factor where it turns from liquid to some kind of solid. My face actually felt great for the first hour, and then the oil jets sprang to life and seemed to work overtime. This actually made me shinier faster than not using any primer at all. Complete waste of money, and very frustrating!

          This is one of the best shine control primers on the market, very smooth and easy to use. Lovely matte finish, especially for oily skin.

                I was looking for something to keep my skin from being oily and take the appearances of pores away. The employee that helped me said this would be good for my skin and unfortunately with in an hour or two my face was very oily and blotchy

                  I applied nyx shine killer before my foundation. After a few hours, I went to check my face and it was still matte. I tend to get oily after a few hours but with this product, I went the whole night with no shine!!!

                  Works great, but maybe not the best for acne prone skin

                    Works great to control oil. Takes away the shine, whether wearing makeup or not. It also seems to be helping to keep my makeup on longer without having to reapply. Though, I don't reccomend it for daily use. I have somewhat acne prone skin, and my breakouts have seemed to increase a little in the regions I more heavily use this product- my t zone. But it works well.
