    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

    It does go on white like a sunscreen but it made my makeup stay on really well. I have very fair sensitive skin with rosacea, eczema and lichen planopilaris and this did not irritate my skin. I have an issue with makeup staying on around my mouth and this did seem to help.

    This did not make my foundation look good at all. It made it separate and look really cakey. Don't recommend.

            I used this on my t-zone (where my pores are the largest). Instead of making them "disappear" the product filled in then and left then more noticeable.

                          This is an over priced sunscreen. It does not work like other primers I have used. Disappointing product. I actually returned it.
