    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

    When you use as a base or alone or on top of make up it goes on like it will stop the shine but give it 30 minutes and your face is oily again. T zone looks like a frying pan. Not sure if they think you're going to apply it e wry 30 minutes or what all I know is it doesn't work for me it may work for you.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

      I didn't start using any primers until a little while ago, but now I see what huge difference it can make! I really love any products by NYX! This primer not only helped me tame my oil problem, but it helps my makeup stay on my face even in like 99 degree weather! It makes my skin feel super smooth and it even visually smooth's out and fine lines or bumpy texture I may have. My foundation sticks to it really well too. I really love this product!

        Good alternative for the price. I use a mineral powder foundation and this works well with it.

          My skin is combination-oily and this works fabulously to deter mid-day and end-of-day shine; with or without makeup, skin still looks fresh!

                  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.

                          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

                          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!!!!!
