      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup First Base Primer Spray:

      I purchased this once my Smashbox Primer Water was about to run out to see if I could get away with a much cheaper option.. and let me tell you.. WOW!! I was so pleasantly surprised with how well this keeps my makeup on! The spray is very nice, honestly the perfect spray and it kept my makeup on (with my Urban Decay Optical Illusion primer) for over 18 hours the first time I used it!! Would definitely recommend.

            Comments about NYX Professional Makeup First Base Primer Spray:

            This primer is definitely my go to primer for sure. I've had other primers that where cream based but I like this spray on primer much better. I don't like touching my face when putting on my makeup so the cream primers are a no go for me. The spray helps me to take care of my first base with just a couple of pumps, let it set in my skin, and then apply my makeup.

            I didn't really see a difference in using the product from when I didn't use it. I did notice my face was itching more than it normally would when I wear makeup.

                WORST BREAKOUT IVE EVER HAD! :(

                By Savannah

                from Alabama

                Comments about NYX Professional Makeup First Base Primer Spray:

                I bought this off of the NYX website and my face started burning after the first pump! I washed my face right after, but my face still broke out! I don't recommend this for sensitive, acne-prone skin.

                Always will buy. Subtle spray and smell. I notice a difference compared to other primers! I have only used nyx primers with all my makeup products. Good for the price
