          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base:

          I am not acne prone save the occasional pimple around "that time of the month". I wanted to try something new and this was an impulse buy while I was in the store so I hadn't read reviews. This doesn't feel like a primer should- it's very heavy on your face and feels like you have a thick layer of sunscreen on when you're wearing it. At first it made my makeup look seriously cakey, and within an hour, my face felt extremely greasy (I have average skin, not dry or oily). The next day in the areas where I concentrated application (t zone), I had several MASSIVE bumps below the skin on my chin and nose (not somewhere I normally get those occasional pimples). They were below the surface at first and now after over a week of not using it, are still on my face, big, swollen, and red and extremely hard to cover. So upset I tried this!

            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.
