    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Shine Killer:

    This product is amazing. I don't wear to much face makeup (just powder), but living in florida and having to deal with the constant heat and humidity, it's hard to keep that perfect matte look all day. The first time using this I immediately notice my makeup has never looked so smooth and my skin remained shine free all day! I'm actually very impressed, and when I find things I like and that actually work I have to let the world know!

          • 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.
