How to Use
Rated 4.23 out of 5 stars
First off, this seems to be a silicone-based primer, and I prefer water-based ones because silicone-based primers feel greasy on my face.
• Nyx's Bright Maker primer didn't feel as greasy/slick as other silicone-based primers I've used, so that's a plus!
• The product has a very light scent, which is helpful for people who prefer unscented or only lightly scented products (me)
• The primer, without foundation or anything else added, left me with a shimmery, dewy-looking face
• Left me with a dewy-looking face, which I personally do not like because I typically have oily skin, so a dewy look just makes me think my skin is greasy.
• The container is small - not much product inside
• ^ This is a problem because it seemed like I needed a lot of product in order to cover my whole face. It took at least a nickel-sized amount to cover my face, which isn't a bad thing, except there is a small amount of product in container.
Perhaps this primer is better used to cover small areas of your face rather than the whole thing, otherwise (if you use daily or often) it seems like it will run out quickly.
Overall, I think this is a good primer, just not the one for me. I would recommend this to friends who prefer silicone-based primers and/or who like shimmer.
I received this product for free from influenster. I have a light-medium/medium skin tone and my skin is on the oily side. I tested this product side by side with the marshmallow primer from NYX and did not notice a huge brightening effect. The scent almost smells like guava or mango and is less sweet and heavy then the marshmallow primer, the scent also dissipates much faster than the marshmallow one. A lot of fragrances normally bother me, but this one did not, and was gone not too long after I blended the primer in. The primer itself has a slight peachy tint, but did not seem to change any sort of coloration on me. It did a pretty good job of holding my makeup all day and didn't make me overly greasy. Overall, I really enjoyed this primer, the only reason why I did not rate it higher is simply because I did not really notice any kind of brightening effect.

Title says it all. The ingredients they are using for the brightening effect aren't milled finely enough to actually brighten. This isn't shimmer or anything that dignified… it's just giant chunks of glitter.

I really enjoy this primer. I like the glow it gives my skin and I wear it with or without foundation on top. I think it looks great either way. I do find it slightly greasy feeling, but not enough to take away a star. I would definitely recommend and repurchase!

I've been using this as an under-eye primer to hide dark circles and it works very well. It leans more thinly pigmented so it may not hide harmed spots but it's also thin enough to go on smoothly and blend well under foundation

I think this could help with dark circles. It really brightened my under eye because of the color of the product. Also primed my skin well.

This has been my favorite primer I've ever used and I've used a lot. I love the glowy look it gives my skin and my makeup always goes on very smoothly.

As a mother of two young boys, makeup isn't usually something I usually think or worry about. I did love the coverage and ease of use for this. I just wasn't a fan of the shimmer.
If I was looking for that particular look, then definitely would use this. But this is not something I would use on a regular basis.

I liked this product but did not love. It was a little dewy and left a shinier look than I like but I love the tint to it!

I love the primer I still currently use mine. I have tried to limit my use of make up since I started tanning but just yesterday I used my primer and my foundation applied smoothly on my face. Long lasting primer and has a good smooth shimmery texture.

I dont think this primer actually does anything...wouldn't buy again.

There is a thin line between enough and casket ready! But I like this product! I use a little more on my under eye and I could tell in my pictures. It is something to use to give you a different look.

I used it with my makeup forever hd foundation and it helped my dull skin look beautiful and hydrated.

Great (almost) corrector that evens our your skin tone and brighten up your face to make you look more awake and young and fresh! But it's pretty pricey for a primer.
ablanton90 from undisclosed
I only applied this to areas that I wanted to make brighter on my skin, such as the high points of my cheeks and my under eyes. I did not notice a huge brightening affect after applying my makeup as I generally use pretty matifying/full coverage makeup, but prior to makeup application I did definitely see the brightening affect this gave to my skin. I feel this would be nice to apply on a light makeup day or in combination with a nice BB cream or tinted moisturizer .

Do yoooou like dewy skin with a natural glow? And products that not only work well but smell good? Then here's your product! With the scent of papaya, this product is amazing when applied before foundation to give your skin that extra radiant boost needed to finish off any look! The reason I gave this 4 and not 5 stars is because I have naturally oily skin, so it can be a bit much on my own skin but looks great still!

I recommend this primer if you want brightened your skin when using a matte foundation but not look dewy. If you don't like scented primer then this is not the primer for you.
lissap1 from undisclosed
it bring to your face so much light, shine and shimmer no joke! very sparkly! smell delicius! its very affordable and i recommend if you like bright make up, it long last you make up!

I usually love hydrating primers but this one is not my absolute favorite. I like that it's hydrating but the glow might be too much. I definitely like the marshmallow primer better. I don't think I would purchase it again especially for this price point...thanks for sending me this to try out for free Influenster!

I was pretty skeptical that this product wouldn't actually deliver on what it advertised as "brightening". But... it actually does! However, after you apply makeup I would say that you can't tell much difference in "brightness" but before hand.. yes. I tested it by applying it first just on my forehead so I could see if it looked any different than the rest of my face and I can say that it made my skin look much less dull and sallow. It says it can be worn alone, without makeup, and I would agree that it actually proved beneficial. As for the "priming" aspect of the product it held up to all-day make-up wear. I only wear medium coverage foundation so I can't say how it would hold up for those who wear much thicker or fuller coverage foundation but for me it did the job. It is actually orange tinted (does not make your skin orange) and felt like gel with a very faint papaya scent. I have very sensitive skin and it did not irritate in the slightest. I would definitely recommend this primer!

The perfect product to add kinda of satin shimmer base to ur make up . I also wore it by it self . It can be too shiny and that's why maybe not for everyday use . I would recommend it if you want that extra shine for a night or go out look
kimmeh from undisclosed
When I first out on this product it works really well with my Asian skin tone, but then I noticed that there were sparkles in the primer. The sparkles aren't big sparkles but they are definitely noticeable. I probably wouldn't use this primer for an every day look especially if I am just going to work. This primary is only good if your gonna go out and want to look sparkly. The product also doesn't really have a smell to it which is good if your sensitive to smell. I guess this is why the product is called Bright. You'll look bright with all of the glitter.

ok let's make this know, the brighter in this is no joke! this product made my whole face look like it was glowing plus the shadow colors I used came out so bright it felt professional!! did make my face feel or spell weird I dig it
kelseat91 from undisclosed
So good! I am proud of this company. The feeling is luxurious and it works under my foundations from other brands.
hangphan from undisclosed
I don't mind the scent of the primer, although it was a bit chemically smelling but not very over powering. As for the primer itself, I didn't notice a brightening effect when I had my foundation over but it worked like any other primer I have used before.
anerol_nnyl from undisclosed
The scent on this product isn't to strong. But it does have a sweet smell scent to it. It definitely gave my face a good base for my foundation . And it gave it a good finish. The value for this product isn't too pricey at all. It's actually affordable. Definitely would recommend this primer.
