Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

I bought this primer because of a friends recommendation who loves it (she is fair with combination skin). However, I have dry skin and this primer accentuates that. It does pale my skin slightly when applied, but I actually like that aspect because it helps reduce the darker pigmentation I have under my eyes. Overall its a great primer because it does its job of keeping on my foundation all-day, however I would not recommend for people with dry skin or dark complexions.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

    I purchase this thinking I can use it with my foundation as a primer..but it doesn't work that way it's too heavy and makes your skin look pale even when small amount is used. I will not purchase this again.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

        I was looking for a new primer and decided to try this. It's a light creamy consistency that comes white out of the bottle that left a bit of a white cast on my skin. It did help my makeup glide on and blend well but a couple hours later my face was so shiny and greasy looking. I have very dry skin and never have a problem looking oily. I had to return this product because it made me look so bad.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Studio Photogenic Primer:

            I feel like I have tried every primer out there. I have very oily skin, so a good primer is important to me... Ive used smashbox, benefit, MAC bobbi brown, ect, and this CHEAP primer beats them all. My makeup stays put all day. The only thing I could complain about is the color, it does make my face a little white once its applied, but it is easily coveres by my foundation. Best primer Ive everused and believe me, I have used ALOT!

                  I have used many primers..all of which I don't bother to re-purchase. Well this has impressed me thus far. I used a half of a pump..and applied only to my t-zone after moisturizer. My makeup lasted literally through an 8 hour work day at the hospital, a mild workout, a dog walk, and dinner, and a trip to the mall! Haha! (With one small touch up in between using a bit of powder)! For reference I have combination skin with rare breakouts.
                  It is thick, and definitely needs to dry before makeup application. I hope this doesn't break me out and ruin my excitement! Try it!

                    I use a light, oil-free moisturizer first and let it sink in for a few minutes. Then I use one pump for my whole face and neck, it may not seem like enough but it is (if you need more only use a half pump extra). I then allow for the primer to sink in for a few minutes. I go on to apply my foundation with a sponge then my concealer. I set the whole thing with NYX translucent HD mineral powder. It all leaves my skin looking like porcelain. I love that it is made with minerals and free from oils, parabens, and talc.
