Most Helpful Positive Review Wonderful....but please lose the gold flecks
First off...this is really more of a SERUM than a primer. This is not going to hold your makeup on like a silicone primer, but it is still pretty amazing. It is full of really fantastic ingredients. Especially Hyaluronic Acid, which helps the skin to absorb and retain moisture, the Portulaca which is anti-inflammatory and calming, collagen, and we love Allantoin, which is very soothing and helps increase water absorption to the skin, and also increases the smoothness of the skin; promotes cell replication and the healing of wounds, burns, and scars. Not to mention all the amazing botanicals. The ONLY thing that bothers me about this is the "gold flecks" . They are just unnecessary and a gimmick that just doesn't make any sense.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not as geat as I was expecting...
I will post on my blog with more detail but, this primers just is not for me! I thought it would be amazing because soooo many NYX products are. This formula doesn't seem to be any different whrn it comes to basic priming. The gold flakes are a bit random and not small enough to illuminate the skin. The products feels wet and sticky to me and make my combo/oily skin a wee bit unhappy. Also, the packaging would be so much better in a pump form...much more sanitary. All in all this product has the potential to be great but I just don't think it's there yet.

I love this primer for my dry/sensitive skin. Makes my skin dewy and soft. Not sticky or watery. My make up glides on smoothly. The only thing that I don't like is the applicator. Change it to a pump action.
Would buy this again
Val from Phoenix, Az
Makes my skin look healthy and smooth not sweaty. I was expecting this product to move my makeup around on my face but it doesn't do that at all and I love I'm this product for that. I've gotten comments on how my skin looks good when I wear this product.
Maraniexo from Montclair,ca
I had troubles with my fit me foundation being really cakey and patchy on my skin, so i bought this and mixed it in with my foundation applied with beauty blender. It looks super smooth on my dry/acne prone skin definitely recommend for those who have dry skin.
I love how it's not sticky, it feels very refreshing.
Kari from San Antonio, TX
It is very refreshing and hydrating for my face.
Get that faux glow!
AshLash from Illinois
Surprised by the reviews. I guess everyone has had their own unique experience based on preference. I didn't think it smelled bad at all. Love the applicator, it keeps me from applying too much (one dip is all you need, and scoop off the little excess on the top and there won't be a mess- I learned the hard way). My fav way to wear this is w/o makeup- it gives a natural dew and brightness to the skin! I look so hydrated! It also holds my foundation together!
A must have for mature skin
M.Huezo from Hanford Ca
So I discovered this amazing product a couple of years ago. Entering my 40's I was missing moister and plump skin. Finding a primer that could give me both was just a miracle. Well Miracles come true not only does it do what it says it does the price is totally doable. It has a tacky feeling but not sticky just enough to grip you your make up without the feel of cake on your face .. I'm a fan . Great for summer ,beach glowing look
Yessss honey from Columbus
Totally recommend getting ! Makes your makeup last so much longer than other primers. Also gives you an amazing glow throughout the whole day.
Key of advice when applying put it on a fluffy makeup brush and apply that why so much easier and no mess what so ever.
Jasmine from Maryland
I LOVE THIS PRIMER!!!! i have combination skin so i was scared that my face would be too oily on my t-zone, but it was perfect! My skin was glowing ❤️❤️
destiny from tallahassee
this is my all time favorite drug store primer, and top 3 favorite primers including high end!! the formula is so smooth and makes your skin look so nice and glowey, it's perfect for dry/normal skin and i love using it with a bb cream for a super natural look
I would buy again
Lisa from Houston
This primer gives me a glow & helps my makeup stay on longer. The applicator isn't great and threatens to make application messy. I've started putting product on my hand & just applying with my fingers.
Feega from Ravenna ohio
This helps my makeup stay put. It is not oily or greasy. My eye make stays on without melting during the day
This primer is amazing
Superstephen93 from North Carolina
This product is amazing it's not crazy dewy, but creates a sticky base for your foundation. The only reason I am not giving it a 5 is because I hate the applicator. Please put a pump on it. And if I'm nit picking it would be a bit thicker. But it really is great and helps condition the skin even when you have washed your makeup off
Not worth the money
Easton from Iowa
For the cost of a NYX primer, I expected more. It is nice and tacky at the start and your makeup looks great at first. After just a few hours my makeup is breaking down, blotchy, greasy, and my face just feels gross. I was super hyped to try this, but it's a fail for me.
clove from va
I like this...but the smell is horrible. it dries quick which is nice and it feels sticky at first, but dries and brightens your skin a bit. I don't think I'd buy it again
Cookie from Staten Island
Ok so I was in the market for a new primer. I have normal to dry skin with rosacea but wait there more with sensitive skin to just about any product. So I came upon NYX honey dew me up skin serum & primer. Let me tell you that not only did this product not break me but that it made my foundation last all day. I wasn't oily nor dry. It was the perfect match that kept my face radiantly glowing. 10/10 would recommend!
hannah from va
this primer did almost nothing for my skin accept burnt it. I dont have really sensitive skin but this was so bad. not worth the money.
Great product! I have super oily skin throughout the day
Lex from Marietta OK
This is heavenly!
Jazzy from California
Good primer for dry skin . It's sticky so the foundation can stick on . A little goes a long way
My go to primer!
Lala from Michigan
Really light feeling on the skin, but effective. I use it for my rosacea and it definitely helps my skin even out for foundation.
Marcelle from Glenview IL
Not a bad primer at all makes your skin feel tacky and hydrated and ready for foundation. I would only use this as a primer tho not just as a serum as it makes my skin pretty tacky. Only downside is that it's super hard to get out of the little glass and spatula.. I have to rub the spatula all over my hand then apply it on my face a couple times as it's very gooey. Besides that not bad at all
Best Primer Ever
Rhianen from Idaho
I have super sensitive, oily skin, and have tried every primer out there. This is my absolute favorite! It lasts forever, feels good, and smells amazing.
Caroline from tn
The best dewy and hydrated look ever. A little pricey for the drugstore but worth it. Bottle last a long time.
This on top of Elf putty primer 🙌🙌
Gabby from VA
Listen up to all of my makeup lovers out there, this stuff is so good. I have always had problems with primers not keeping makeup on my nose or my foundation would rub off in spots NOT THIS STUFF. This primer goes on beautifully, a little goes a long way. It dries down tacky and it makes my makeup wear longer and look better the longer I wear it. This primer is not pore filling however if you use the elf putty primer in problem areas with this on top it is an absolute DREAM. I have dry/combo skin and have used this under the following foundations, It Cosmetics CC cream, maybelline superstay full coverage foundation, wet n wild photofocus, and cover girl clean fresh skin milk. Give this stuff a chance you won't regret it.
better for normal-dry skin
Julea from California
it smells amazing and feels really good on my skin. a little goes a long way so be careful. it leaves a tackiness for the foundation to stick to but it didn't do much for my pores, i would recommend using this on top of a pore filling primer. since it is a dewy primer and it is very tacky and glass-like i wouldn't recommend it if you have oily skin.
Second time buy
Diana76 from Apple Valley Ca
I use before foundation and works great or just on a regular day
