Most Helpful Positive Review Best Prime of all Times!
I bought this item a month ago and I must say, its a winner. I use before applying my foundation, on my oily skin, it makes my skin look smooth and matte. It fills in the imperfections and allows your foundation and powder to glide on your skin... added bonus is that it smells great!!! It exceeded my expectations!!!

For some reason this didn't blend well into my skin, had me looking grayish .. Perhaps its not for women of color. This was a disaster for me.
Reviewed by 151 customers Worst primer I've ever used
Bbhrae from Greenville sc
Doesn't make skin smooth like other primers. Leaves my skin sort of sticky and with a white film over it. I tried this thinking it would be similar to smashbox, before I used NYX, I tried ELF, and elf seems to be the way to go if you're looking for good price and good quality. This is like putting glue mixed with water on your face. Definitely going to get my money back.

this looks like you're putting elmers glue on your face. it made my foundation separate horribly. I was very disappointed in this product.
All but the nose
Janet from SoCal
This works better for me than Bare Minerals! My makeup stayed all day! Unfortunately, my nose was left looking extremely blotchy, as I was unable to achieve any sort of coverage on my nose. My forehead between my eyebrows does great with this primer though! Overall, I like it, I just need to get something specific for my nose.
Not a fan
Not a makeup pro from Dallas, TX
Overall, I am very disappointed with this primer. First, it is not smooth application and challenging to spread evenly on my face. I could see the blue hue on my face after application and could never blend in my skin so i could apply the foundation with ease. My face looked ashy after applying my makeup.
Left White Film On My Face
ERich from Texas
I tried this primer on for the first time today. It left a white film on my face.
Like putting a pore amplifier on
DeeN1ce from Great Lakes State
This does nothing for me except eat up space and my money. Angel Veil from NYX is much better for my skin. I am combo skin, getting dryer as I get older. I even put it on my hands to see if smoothed that skin. Nothing.
Could be better
Heather B. from Ohio
I don't have the issues some of the others have listed. It doesn't smell like glue to me at all. It goes on well, and my makeup stays put with it. I use it in conjunction with Milani foundation. I've found some foundations and primers just don't work well together. These 2 are a good combo. I don't think it really smooths out fine line or pores though. That's why I only gave it 3 stars.

I will not buy this product
Sydney from Knoxville, TN
As a base for every day make up
I always have one on my beauty table
Shahnaj from New York
This is the kind of primer you want to use if you want to be very dolled up. It smells a little like glue, but that goes away. This primer is perfect for those makeup heavy looks and works for full coverage looks. When you use a full coverage foundation, you want to use this kind of primer. It's for a very matte dry look. This is not for everyday wear. When you apply it, you have to let it soak into your skin so your pores wont show when you apply foundation.
Should have read the reviews before I bought it
Lily from Connecticut
I'm sad that out of all the primers I could have gotten from nyx, I got this one. Every time I use it, my skin gets weird patches
Touba R from Irvine CAb
I love it
Do Not Purchase
Tiana from Farmington
This was one of the worst purchases I've ever made when it comes to makeup. It smells strange, is blue tinted and leaves the skin off color, and it doesn't seem to help prime. I used it a couple times and hoped for the best, but it never worked right and left my makeup dry.
shelf space stealer
ya boi from Norway
yeah just don't buy this. it leaves lines and will cause your makeup to clump up, create this thick gross layer on your lips and overall on your skin. smells odd, applies horribly, rolls if you rub after 2 seconds of applying, doesn't cooperate well, leaves your skin looking blue underneath your foundation and eventually takes it off. and you'll be left alone in the dark looking like a cakey pale avatar. spend your money on literally anything else I beg you.
Not for oily skin
Noellle from VA
This product is thick and blue. After the application I literally look like a ghost.. I'm olive toned. half way through my work day my skin was oily and my makeup looked caked. Returning this product
MissFoofy from Dallas, TX
I've tried loads of primers, and this primer is one of my favorites. My foundation goes on flawlessly on top of this primer, and it's not at all drying. Great staying power!
Dina from El Paso Tx
Love it! If I wear it during the week I only need translucent powder on top of primer and my skin looks good. Very natural. If I apply makeup for going out on top of primer my skin looks perfect.
Made my skin more oily
Halie from Houston
This product worked well at first. But half way through the day my skin was insanely oily and my makeup looked awful. I also started to get breakouts and I couldn't figure out why but when I stopped using this, my acne went away.
Awful Product That Doesn't Work
Meredith from Cypress, TX
This stuff is watery and a blueish-white hue. It doesn't blend well onto skin no matter how well you exfoliate, moisturize, and otherwise prep your skin. It has no effect on the longevity of your foundation.
Very good, evens out skin and sticks to makeup.
Maddz from Detroit, Michigan
I use it every morning before my makeup. Just rub with clean hands all over my face.
I am not happy with this product.
Pooky from St George UT
This comes out of the tube a very pale blue and unless you cover every inch of your face with foundation to cover it up, you will look like a ghost on Halloween.
Makes Me Break Out
Fantasy Emmy from Vilnius
This is actually a really good primer, but it makes me break out and doesn't quite blend into the skin. That's not a big problem for me because I'm as white as a ghost, but still
No staying power
Alex from Queens
No staying power for eyeshadow or liquid liner
Lost coverage within 90 minutes
Not worth it!
Nyx from Nc
Very watery and whiteeee, it does not blend in with your skin, but and looks like sunscreen! Would not buy again.
Swalter4 from San Diego
When applying this product it definitely goes on the skin pretty white, however if youre putting foundation on over, which I am, I dont see that as a big deal at all. This primer seriously kept my makeup on all day! I tried it with multiple different foundations and it worked! I have oily skin so after a few hours, the oils start to seperate the foundation around my nose, but it doesnt when i use this!!
