Most Helpful Positive Review Deliciously smooth and soft primer
This primer ia amazing. It smells divine, has a great texture, and really smoothes and softens my skin. Definitely a hit! I will most likely buy this again
Most Helpful Critical Review Smooth, soft, silky
I received the NYX primer as a part of the VoxBox by Influenster, and in no way did I pay for the primer. The pros: glides on smooth, great smell, easy to rub in, one pump is all you need. Cons: doesnt blue pores, or fine lines. Winter redness still present. I was excited to try out this primer because Im always looking for something to blur my pores, but this did not do it. The primer did not take away my winter redness, smooth my forehead lines, or hide my pores. Now it did hydrate my dry skin, and I love that! I have severe dry skin in the crease of my mouth and this primer took care of that. My foundation didnt go on any different or look any different either. I only give this a 3 because it didnt perform the way the bottle said it would do, but I love the non tacky feel. Thank you Influenster and NYX for this chance to try out a new primer!

This is the worst primer I've ever used. It pills up when you try to rub it in. My makeup just caked and separated on top of it. I tried giving it a shot multiple times, moisturizing before, not moisturizing before, nothing helped. Not to mention it smells so bad! Like plastic candy. Might be better for normal skin but do not use if you have dry skin
Tried to love it

First off, the smell is incredible. I love how the product itself is very tacky so your makeup just grips right on. Unfortunately, every time I have used this primer I would have a breakout on my forehead the next day. I don't wear makeup as much as I used to so it took me a while to put two and two together. This really is a product I wanted to love, but if you are prone to acne stay away.
Made me so oily!

This made my t-zone area so oily. Don't recommended at all...
Give it a chance

At first the primer wasn't it for me. All I thought was how it was hydrating but that was it was. Until throughout the day I noticed how my makeup didn't have as many creases around my mouth and different areas. It helps keeps you remake up in place and it works pretty good. It makes me look like I have less texture and a pretty smooth face ( of course when you put on the makeup) but in person it makes your texture look worse. I don't know why people are calling it tacky and sticky. It's really not . It's a must buy

Love this product, light and airy. Make up doesn't melt off even in the Texas heat

New favorite primer right here! Marshmallow scent is a little more than I anticipated but goes away quickly.
Britbrit from Florida
I received this primer in the travel size as a gift. Figured it wouldn't hurt to try it and I love it. Will definitely purchase the big bottle. My foundation and blush stayed all day at work even with a mask on! I did spray setting spray and powder but I feel the primer did a great job holding it onto my face.

Wouldn't recommend this product. It's very sticky and was starting to cause acne. I don't normally have sensitive skin or acne.
Don't bother purchasing.
love it smells great

amaleex from ohio
this product works so well and looks beautiful on the skin. it also smells amazing, but i must be allergic to something in it. i gave it 2 chances and i got dermatitis both times. very unfortunate
Not for me
Ammy from Seattle wa
I personally didn't like the feeling of it on my face like heavy and sticky. Also had an allergic reaction. Idk what In it can cause a reaction at all.
It does have a very good smell
Justme from Ohio
Not for me, I tried this after all the hype I saw on social media. It did smell amazing. Too "wet" feeling on applying, my face felt sticky. Felt heavy on my skin. I used this after I tried another product. The other product I used was much smoother.

It smells nice and goes on smooth. Would recommend
Don't buy this product
Emma from NC
I did not enjoy this product. It did not do any favors to my makeup or my skin and on top of that, I couldn't get past the smell of it. I returned it and I'm glad I did.
Works well and makes my makeup look fresh
Kitty from Springfield
I bought this with the beauty blender and both work well together and the blender expands.
Smells just like marshmallows
Mandi from Okc
I love this primer so much!! It leaves my face extra soft and smells sooo good!! 10/10
Lex76 from Va
I absolutely love this! Goes on evenly and has such a nice smell to it. The feel of it is very light and soft to the touch. I know some people complained about the dew like feeling. Well, I have an oil pit production on my face 24/7 all dang years long. Doesn't bother me a bit. So if you have an oily face it shouldn't bother you too much. If not, we've been warned.
I would buy this again!

It works as a primer. It is OK I still like Benefit better.
Gypsy from South Jersey
Smells good! Love the packaging! Does the job! I like to wear it alone! It's not greasy! Absorbs quick in your skin!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
Dennise from Lafayette, IN
First off, this stuff smells amazing, secondly it does a great job of making my foundation last through wearing a mask all day. I'm a teacher so I'm in my mask for three to four hours at a time and my make-up still looks flawless after the school day. I definitely see what all of the online buzz has been around this product.
MelbaT from Florida
I wanted the hype to work for me. But after 2 days of wearing this, my face looks like a city of zits. Also it wasn't blurring and enhanced the textures on my face. Blegh! I am returning this and going back to my NYX Bare With Me primer.
It's just ok
DG from PA
I don't know what all the hype is about. Maybe it's not meant to be for aging skin. Smell is ok, but I think this product is geared towards the younger generation.
Not all it's cracked up to be
Bonnie P from Kansas City
Keep in mind that products perform differently on everyone but for me, this primer didn't live up to the hype. I've had great results with Nyx's Pore Filler and No Filter primers but the Marshmallow primer gave my skin unwanted texture and made my foundation look dull and tired midway through the day. For reference, I use Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place foundation which I've found to be very forgiving when using non-Estee Lauder products.
This primer seemed to just sit on my skin instead of absorbing into it. Also, I normally don't mind scent but this does smell like sugary marshmallows and that's not my thing.
Not for oily skin
Megs from Virginia
Product smells great. It is not great for oily skin though. I used it under my Lancôme foundation and set it with powder and after a few hours my makeup basically disappeared off of my face and I was so greasy. My skin is moderately oily but this made it way worse.
