Most Helpful Positive Review If I could give this...
If I could give this more hearts I would! I have really sensitive and extremey oily skin. And I was worried that this primr would break me out or it wouldn't really hid my oil. I have been using this product for about 6 days now and I can honestly say it is a gift from the makeup gods. I have not broken out anymore then normal and I have not had a super oily face. I mean there is oil there, but thats a given. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being that my fave is pouring out oil and 1 being dry as a bone, my face was a 9 before, and now it's a 4-5. Which is right where I want it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Extremely disappointed!!!
When I saw this in the store, I got excited, as I have an oily t-zone. Got it home, wore it for 2 days and was extremely disappointed. Not only did it not mattify my face, but I was oilier than ever!!! Where I usually blot my face once a day, I was blotting the entire day to rid my face of the oil. Usually, I love NYX products, but this had to go back to the store.

Turns into an oil slick. Will not be repurchased.
Comparable to prestige brands
mmkoeb21 from Saint Cloud, MN
Works great, and the price is way better than some of the more expensive brands
I purchased this product and I enjoy using it!

I would definitely purchase this product again!
This product should be called "Shine Booster"
Char from Georgia
I honestly thought it was just me until I started reading some of the previous reviews. This product does not "kill shine" it causes your skin to look like an oily mess. My skin is very normal, with mild oil in the T-zone. When I use this primer, my skin is greasy all day, ruining my foundation.
Naomipa9 from Melbourne,FL
This truly does kill all shine. I have super oily skin and this works great.
Val from Dallas,Texas
I bought this because i have an oily t-zone and it literally made my face more oily than usual.
Not a good primer for oily skin from Wheeling
I'm all for NYX but this was the absolute worse for me I bought this cause it was on a recommendation page for oily skin but for me it made my t-zone look like I just spread actual grease on my face.
I really like the way it keeps the makeup on with no shine.
Debbie from Jacksonville, Al
I like the product.
Tres from Church Hill, TN
kept my oily skin at bay..make up went on great and lasted all day..
Brina from Tennessee
I finally got an amazing skin care routine down for my dry skin. Unfortunately with that came my skin looking kind of shiny. I tried FOUR other primers before this one. The first time I used it and applied my make up on top, I knew I would never want to use another primer again.
I will not buy this again
Tatetate from Murrieta California
The product goes on smooth but becomes very oily throughout the day. Plus, it tended to cause my foundation to run off.
Worked well for my extremely oily skin
Ogkunoichi from NC
I've tried many many primers in a quest to find one that makes my make up last. I'm a very oily girl and a lot of primers that claim to keep the oil on your face in control don't actually work. This worked very well for me. Almost as good as the Smashbox photo finish primer. I use this and an elf oil control primer in tandem and it works great for me. Give this a try it's inexpensive compared or other oil control primers.
I love this product!
Lynn from Florida
Shine Killer feels great and it does kill the shine!
Did the opposite of a shine killer!
Don't try from Chicago
I used this instead of the smashbox primer I usually use, and my face actually looked greasier! It was as if I had literally splattered cooking oil in my tzone! My face is somewhat oily and during the day I can see a little shine, but when I tried this on, my face looked super shiny and greasy. Do not recommend.
Works as well as BM primer
Beth from St, Paul
Bought this on a whim to see how it stacked up to my favorite Bare Minerals original primer. It is great! Similar ingredients and feels and applies the same. The cost is SO much better. I will buy again.
tj from Springfield
this is awful. it doesn't help with shine at all. it's just a silicone primer. don't waste your money.
Nope, no, just NO
MakeupHoarder from San Antonio, TX
I've never actually hated a product. If they don't work, all well, move on to the next but I can't tell if NYX mislabeled their product and thought "eh, lets just sell it anyways" or what but....this did no sink into my skin at all. It stayed on top like a clear greasy ointment even after 10 min of letting dry. Made my face oilier and greasy. It did nothing AT ALL for shine and right now I have moderate to light oily skin. I can't imagine how this would work if you have heavier oily skin. So no, nope. Not now. Not ever.
Not a shine killer
Sam from I
Good primer, but does nothing for shine
This "Shine Killer" doesn't kill anything.
Danii from Florida
To keep it short and sweet, this primer doesn't do the show it states its intended to do. I have combination skin where my T-zone is oily while the rest of my face is on the drier side. This primer just makes me shinier than i already was. Save your money sis.
Made me even more shiny
wrevoir from Detroit, MI
I used this Monday and I felt it worked and I was super happy. I used CC cream that day. On Tuesday and Wednesday, I didn't use CC cream because I started to breakout so I wanted to use less product on my face. Those day, when I looked in the mirror I was saw more oil than I had seen in a long time. I looked damp actually but I couldn't feel the dampness for some reason. Also, I could assume this product made me breakout because the CC cream hasn't made me breakout before. I will be returning this product.
Gives a Matte look but makes you breakout
Jlaw from Orlando, FL
This stuff is super greasy when you put it on and it's hard to tell if it's applied evenly. It does help add to my matte look a little bit longer, but since I started using it I keep breaking out. It's just too greasy and clogs your pores.
Oil, Oil, Oil
Abby C. from Elgin, Tx
I have a super oily T-Zone and I swear this product added even more oil to my whole face. My makeup would have looked better if i wouldn't have used any primer
suprised an oily girl like me
becky from Caribbean
I'm super oily and I've used so many primers on the quest to find one that works best for me. Out of all the drugstore primers I've used this one is literally the best. I can go literally hours without touching up and it will still look good. I know it's this primer because the only thing I switch in my routine is primers.

I use this product all year round & it is really effective in the summer momths
Literally the worst
Vmickiemeyer from Baltimore, MD
This product made my skin look like a mirror even worse than usual. After 3 uses, the cap started leaking, so in addition to worse looking makeup and skin, my hands would become greasy from just touching the bottle. Do not waste your money.
