How to Use
Rated 4.31 out of 5 stars
Really enjoying the smoothing effect this product gives to my makeup, especially since I wear sunscreen under it makeup applies easily! And the Marsh mellow candy like smell is pleasant since I really enjoy marshmallows!
I was excited to try this primer based on some of the reviews and the description but when I used it I didn't like it AT ALL! The product itself smells really good, like sugar / marshmallow's, however, that is probably the only thing I liked about it. The product is sticky / tacky and I waited several minutes before applying my make up because it was still sticky on my face and I ended up needing to apply my make up anyways and it just didn't blend well with my foundation or powder. It made my makeup look streaky and completely unblendable. Definitely not impressed.

I bought this on a whim after running out of my regular primer that was just way too pricey but this...this!! I have used many primers over the years and not only does it smell nice, it goes on very smooth and didnt leave me sticky or weird feeling. it's so light weight you really dont need a lot. worked well with my makeup forever foundation! its worked amazing throughout the summer so im excited to see how winter fares.

I received a sample of this primer otherwise I probably would never have bought it. Typically my make up tends to mostly disappear whether high end or low end makeup has been applied, I work upwards of 13 hours a day. This was the only change in my makeup routine and by the time I would get home at night - my make up was still on - even my blush (which is always the first to go).
Obviously you have to prep your skin and take the right steps but this primer has been a game changer for me. It also has a nice smell,
and adds a really pretty glow. You could wear this on no make up days for a glowly finish or as a wonderful base to keep make up lasting.

This product did not work for my skin at all. It did nothing to conceal my large pores and my foundation ended up separating and getting patchy by the end of the day. I do not recommend this primer for anyone with oily/combination skin.
ShaniAZ from Phoenix AZ
-Works with sunscreen and helps foundation stay even and fresh-looking all day long.
-Does not make my face oilier or cause breakouts.
-Does not sink into lines or pores. - -Smells great! Works nicely around my eyes - could even skip eye cream if this had spf!
I usually find scented products irritating; either causing breakouts or finding the smell unpleasant. I really like the Marsh Mallow primer scent, though, and I notice it only upon application.

I love the smell of this. It's a marshmallow / cabbage patch kid smell (weird I know) it's super soft and I'm overall obsessed with this product for the price

If I only had one face product, this would be it. I have been using this for a couple months and I have now promoted it to HG.
I simplified my skin prep and now use this and Fourth Ray beauty Strawberry Skin Milk.
I was using a separate moisturizer but this is a great multitasker so no other cream necessary.
I'm extra so I definitely use way more than you're supposed to. I use two pumps to get the skin super plump. The fragrance is very sweet and I don't even like that type of smell but I would literally smear this all over my body if it came in a giant tub. NYX! Make this marshmellow magic in a body cream version already k?
I truly hope NYX expands the Marshmellow into a whole makeup line.
If you're on the fence, go ahead and try it, especially if you have dry skin. It's better than a whole pile of high end primers I have tried.

I purchased this after I saw a professional makeup artist raving about it. It's pretty good. I don't know if I will run out and get it again once it's gone. I had hoped for more smoothing coverage but not really.

I just love using The Marshmellow Smoothing Primer who ever taught about this product it's Awesome I use it everyday, and it works great.

1) If you do not like scents this is NOT for you. I have textured skin and combo, dude this stuff smoothed out my face. Hangover primer used to be my go to... NOT ANYMORE LOL sorry, but this does wonders for MY Skin. Not everyone's skin is the same, BUT do keep in mind if your makeup is breaking apart or separating it could be because of the silicone/water based aspect. YOU CANNOT USE WATER BASED PRIMER WITH SILICONE and vice versa because this will happen!!! So always look at ingredients!
Autumn from Ohio
It works good enough but was overhyped . dont buy if you dont like super strong and sweet smells
Love love love from Passaic NJ
It's moisturizing and it gives my skin a healthy glow. My make lasts all day 😍 wouldn't recommend it for oily skin but is dry girls need this in our life😍
DebiQ from Jacksonville
It has a wonderful fragrance but it's uncomfortably sticky. It works well with Nyx foundation but I've tried it with other brand foundations and it feels awful on my skin.
Zo from Newington, CT
I got this on a whim after watching it be featured on a few YouTubers channels and in a favorites line up. I actually really like this. It's fun to use, smells nice, and innovative. More importantly, it works! I think all the claims are accurate and I loved this in my usual routine. I'm oily and this definitely added to the lasting power of my makeup. I think I'll use it on its own to also see how it goes. Looking forward continued use of this.

Used under Bare Minerals bisque concealer. Helped the concealer stay on, but I broke out terribly everywhere I used the NYX.
Lex from tx from Hou, TX
I recently received this from a sample and I was so excited to try it, bc I saw it all over tiktok.
First impressions: it smells delicious like a Marshmellow, it's somewhat tacky.
I have very oily skin and within the first few hours my face was like a slick. I've been consistently using it, even with a different foundation, but it just doesn't do it for me. I'm just trying to finish the sample at this point bc I don't want to be wasteful.
Christina from USA
If this didn't go viral on tiktok I probably would have never bought this product but I did and have used 2 bottles already!! It smells nice and doesn't have an overwhelming marshmallow scent. It does everything it claims and my makeup goes on so smoothly and stays on. I typically have combo skin(mostly on the oily side) and think this does a great job or controlling my oil! It definitely does everything that it claims to do, I just wish it was a little less expensive considering the size.
SamLiz from NY
Unfortunately I didn't like this...it smells great but doesn't perform well at all...you'll be better off not using a primer then this 😬 it doesn't do anything in terms of long staying foundation wear...
bunnykiss from New York, NY
It smells amazing. But it doesn't really do anything for my skin or my makeup. Make this scent into a body lotion and now we're talking.
AryS from undisclosed
I like the texture. It's very light and moisturising.
KenziiWhatt from Fargo ND
This primer not only helps smooth and soften my dry skin flaws, but the smell is to die for! So light weight and my skin feels great even after a whole day of wearing makeup.
Savannah W from Ontario, CA
4 different foundations and 2 different concealers and it made my makeup melt and break apart. Tried fixing it with setting powder and it was even worse. Leaves your makeup super streaky.
Meems from South Charlotte, NC
Nice soft fragrance. Feels very good on the skin.
juju from orem
i REALLY wanted to like this product, but its safe to say that after using an entire bottle there's no need to repurchase.
it not only has a horrible, overwhelming scent but it is super oily and not in a good way.
1/10 for makeup longevity
6/10 for color (the purple tint is beautiful for dull skin)
3/10 for texture
I have combo dry skin and have tried pairing this with a few different foundations like Loreal Infallible, Juvias Place I Am Magic, IT Cosmetics CC cream, and a few others. and it didnt seem to work well with ANY of them.

Keeps my makeup on longer. Smooths and blurs pores.
na333 from Los Angeles
I was really hoping to like this one, it feels good on my skin, but it just doesn't work for me. I tried blending my concealer after applying the primer, and it just broke apart, it wasn't blending. I washed my face, moisturized, put on the primer again, and used a different concealer. No, it broke again! So I washed my face again, moisturized with a different face lotion, used the primer, used a different concealer again, and it just wouldn't blend. It was just making the concealer break apart and peel. I gave up. It's a pricy primer, and just not worth it tbh.
