Most Helpful Positive Review NYX has done it again!!
I really never review products and I'm a total makeup junkie so I know what I'm talking about. my everyday go to foundation is generally the loreal infallible as it provides beautiful natural flawless coverage. I started using it almost a year ago with the smashbox photo finish pore minimizing primer for about 6 months or so. I started to notice that the thick silicone texture interfered with the foundation because it always looked a little cakey, like there was so much more foundation on my face than what I actually put on. So I decided to go for a thinner primer with more of a lotiony consistency and went with the maybelline master prime primer. I did really love that stuff it looked a lot better than the smashbox and made my makeup look so much more natural BUT once I tried this stuff I quickly realized that neither primers were all that great.
I was in ulta saw the beautiful new display of one of my fav drugstore brands with a bunch of new goodies like this AWESOME primer. I was always skeptical about primer sprays because how much could a mist really affect the way your makeup looks?? And that answer is way way more than you would expect. Not only do I completely prefer this primer over the 40$ smashbox one and the maybelline one I prefer it over ALL the primers I've EVER tried. My makeup looks incredible my pores have disappeared and it looks like skin in a magazine --no joke. I have this new confidence about my whole makeup routine! Ive even noticed a difference in how my foundation applies. I feel like it's way more smoother and I use a less amount of foundation. I'm so glad I saw this before everyone else got to it at my ulta because I knew it would sell out. I LOVE IT BUY IT.
Quick tip for beauty blender users: I recommended to still wet the sponge but not for too long I just run it under water really quickly. Once I moistirize I spray the primer directly on my face and then once onto the beauty blender as well! This way you get a little when you pick up the foundation and an even more flawless application!
Most Helpful Critical Review Like but not love
I've been using this product for a few weeks now, and to be blunt, I'm not sure if it actually works. To test it out I've sprayed half my face and by the end of the day did not notice a difference in my makeup. It does make my makeup look nicer when I apply it, but I'm unsure if it makes it last longer. I will still continue to use though.
-A very fine mist (unlike they're setting sprays)
- Makes your makeup appear better
- Also works as a finishing spray (it won't set your makeup in place, but it does help take away from a powdery look)

Good base just be careful how much you spray since it does take a hot minute to dry

Like how it works no sticky feels at all
works as setting spray too
Scruff from Lexington, KY
I use this as a setting spray--great for dry skin and some of the drier stick foundations--to refresh your makeup and smooth out the finish as the days goes in winter air. Also, it is extremely hypoallergenic, which is much appreciated by those of us with sensitive skin.
Works and it's convenient
Sewah from Boise, ID
Seems to help my makeup stay in place. Specially my eye shadow and mascara. I still feel like there might be a better primer product out there for me. But this is soooo easy to use. Just spray, dry and apply!
Mel Bunny from Texas
Was iffy on using a spray primer but I loved it. It's so easy to just spray and start working and so handy when I'm running late lol.

Made my makeup cake up and sit weird on my face. I washed off makeup and re did without it and my makeup looked so much better. Oh well...I'll use it to wet my brushes.

i use a normal primer and then spray my face with this, it's a must have in my makeup routine
mrs pena from California
I was looking for a silicone free primer after reading that silicones can clog your pores and make you break out (especially with my oily acne prone skin). So I decided to give this a try yesterday and it did well! I didn't have a single pimple pop up. My only complaint is that it doesn't keep my face matte but that's not an issue for me so I will continue to use it.
Brooke from USA
Good product for me ! I'm more of a cream person but a spray primer is nice and it hasn't made me break out .

I am very happy with this product! It helps my foundation to go on smoother and last longer. Plus, it doesn't dry my skin! Great purchase.

I wouldn't repurchase this primer spray, made me break out like crazy and I usually don't with new products. My skin didn't like the formula.
Not cruelty free verified
DrWhoKitty from Ohio
I require all my face, hair and body products to be cruelty free verified. It is very important to me. Unfortunately after buying and using this product I noticed it was not verified cruelty free. I was in a rush when I bought it. The primer was made in China which still tests on animals unlike the rest of the world. I will not be buying anything from NYX cosmetics until they are cruelty free verified. I gave it 2 stars because I'm too nice.
I love this spray!

It's an easy to apply base. Goes on evenly and definitely makes a difference.
Joshlyn from East Texas
I mist my face w/ a few squirts of this and then apply the Baby Skin Pore Eraser to mattify my pores, and yes those prepping steps and my after shower skincare routine helps my makeup stay on pretty much all day.
Sprayer is not good
Sweet September from 91752
Product is good but I can not use it due to the horrible quality of the sprayer. I love the setting spray and I thought it would be same quality but nope. will not repurchase
