Most Helpful Positive Review The primer is my favorite part of the set
NYX typically has great products for affordable prices and this primer is no different. It has great coverage, you don't have to use a lot and it absolutely cover pours and prepares perfectly for more layers. I love that they have a nice variety of options to match to skin tone. Although I am quite pale, the sandy color really works perfect for me. I easily incorporated the primer as part of my daily routine, even though I don't use much concealer etc.. it still works well as a base for the rest of my daily makeup.
I like the fact that there is some shimmer in the primer - one thing Id say though, is that when you add that to other products in this line, it becomes "too" shimmery for my taste at work. I would use all of the products together if I were going out for the evening, but I think using these products separately works better for daily use.
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent primer but a bit unflattering on imperfect skin
I liked the color of this product but it was too shimmery for me. When I put it on I felt like a bronze bust. I had to use extra foundation to cover it up so my textured areas were 1) way too shiny and 2) caked with foundation. I've been having hormonal acne lately and my skin is usually smooth, so I think I'd be fine using this sparingly when my skin is clear. I think if you're interested in this kind of primer then you could make it work. It didn't seem any worse or better than my usual primer so I think it's good in that way!
I would recommend this product to a friend if it's what they're looking for.

Wouldn't recommend if you have oily skin or prefer a more matte look. It made me look blotchy and oily.

I was hoping this would work out, but it was a disaster. Admittedly, I'm 37 and have big pores to start with. Maybe the glass look is just for people with better skin. But this stuff really settled into and amplified my pores, and when I put makeup on top of it, even more so.
fourth time buying!!
Rae from Nashville
Y'all I am a prestigious brand snob, with hardly any exceptions. That being said I love this primer!! I buy it in moonbeam and even ordered two extras, one to keep at my boyfriend's and the other in case I run out. I've been using it since pre-covid and it's my trusted go-to for pretty much everything but long nights out or days I'll be outside. (Live in the high humidity south)
This stuff makes your skin flawless!!! My only complaint would be you do need to cover it at least with a tinted moisturizer, as left on just by itself it can look a little greasy. Which doesn't happen with becca's radiant primers. (I have normal skin with a drier t zone)
Love the glow!
Kim from WA
This looks beautiful. Worked well under estee Lauder double wear foundation. Very dewy appearance! Just what the summer ordered!
dupe for Beccas Backlit Primer
Olive from California
This is a total dupe for the Becca Backlit Primer. it goes on the same, feels the same and makes your skin glow the same way. The only difference is that this primer doesnt smell like the Becca one. but depending on your preferences that may be a good thing. 200% recommend if you want a nice glow.
Storm from NYC
This primer I had high hopes for. I bought this the high glass power and brush. There was nothing special that I could see about it. I have used the powder with out it and there was no change with the performance. It ok as a primer but my skin did not look particularly glassy.
minobia from south dakota
it's mosturizing. it doesn't ball up with my other products. I love this
really beautiful illuminated skin tints
redwoods301 from Williamsburg, VA
I bought these in Rose Quartz and Sandy Glow, I mix them with a mattifying tinted sunscreen and they're beautiful! Layered with the finishing and illuminating powders, and the finish of my skin was so pretty!
Nope, makes me break out.
Jess Makeup from Seabrook, NH
I was bummed because I wanted to love this but it just didn't work for me. It gives a nice base for foundation but when I took off my makeup I noticed little pimples breaking out which took a week to clear up! Sadly, I will not be using this again.
Made my face break out
Ita from New Jersey
I have normal skin. I liked how this primer felt and how it looked under my foundation. I started to break out with red bumps around my cheeks after consistently using it for 3 days. I returned it.
AnitaInNJ from NJ
I didn't like the product . Left my skin feeling funny. Once I applied foundation, it didn't spread well on my skin. It made it look worse on my opinion
The most natural highlight product I've ever used
NouveauDruid from Atlanta, GA
On a whim I decided to give this a try. Over the years, I've used powder highlighters without much success because my skin tends to be oily with large pores and the product was either too obvious and glittery or would wear off first. But Nyx Glass in Moonbeam is the finest, smoothest, sheerest highlighter I've ever tried. It makes my 53 year old skin look younger instantly. It's buildable and it even blends over makeup since it's so finely creamy. The way my face looks now gives me more confidence. Try it!

This product wasn't the right color for my complexion

I absolutely love the subtle glow/shimmer this gives. It applies on nicely and is light weight and doesn't feel oily. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
NYX HIGH GLASS
Jen from New york
I like the packaging and the detail put into its appearance. When you apply the product onto the finger you can see how creamy it feels. It's smooth on the skin and doesn't have an intense odor. I would remember this is product. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
I really love this primer
Tola Falonipe from Maryland
It's really good, the application is easy and it gives your face this pretty inner glow
Jamie from Aiken, SC
I personally prefer a powder highlighter but this one was still great. I don't have anything to compare it to though, however it was definitely easy to apply and looked p cute. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Lawshootz from Los Angeles
So far, I've only used E.L.F. Primers because of how well they worked on my face and how inexpensive they are but I think I'd use this instead from now on. I have combination skin and in certain areas of my face it gets super oily so I can't use certain primers because they make my face super oily. I was worried that that will be the case with this primer as well but so far this primer has been treating me right. I like how this primer itself already illuminates my face. I also like the rosy tint of the Rose Quartz color. This primer in a way lifts my make up! I noticed using this primer on my eye lids and using a shadow base after really makes my shadow pop. Overall, I like it so far and if it continues being this great I'll definitely ditch the E.L.F. Primer and spend a bit more on this one!

This primer gives a healthy glow to your skin. Nothing drastic though. It's worth a try.
I would definitely buy this
LadyBee from Columbus, OH
I love the shimmery finish on the primer. Creates an amazing base for a light filled look. It's a smooth finish and doesn't require a lot of product. I definitely loved the way it looked with makeup applied over it. I received this product to leave an honest review and I was not paid for any response I provided any compensation to do so.
I may not buy again
Mallorie from Conyers, Ga
I don't think I will buy this. It's too oily for my skin and my foundation faded and bled. It is more for powder foundation than liquid.
Definitely getting more!
BRI from Orlando, FL
I LOVE IT! this is the best primer that I've used Thus far. It really holds my makeup in place all day. And I wear my makeup for at least 8 hours a day. Other prisoners I have used in the past have left my skin looking extremely dry which eventually made my Makeup look cakey. Im really impressed.
