      I use this product before I put on powder or foundation because I have oily skin. I use it as my primer as well.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer:

          So I bought this product in hopes it would be a good dupe for the MUFE mattifying primer and it is actually the opposite. I didn't even put it on my face because of how sensitive my skin is, I tested it on my hand first and noticed how greasy my hand and fingers were so I will be returning it.

            It did not kill the shine. The shine was not killed. The shine was stronger and shinier than ever when I put this on. This shine "killer" is actually a shine booster.

            Feels like i'm rubbing olive oil on my face

            By emily

            from PA

            Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer:

            Started applying this product and it felt like nothing but oil on my skin, this was directly after washing my face so i know there was no oil to begin with. Now my skin just feels oily from the product rather than from my skin producing its own oil...

                This is the best primer I've used so far! I have combination skin, but mostly oily above my brows, on my eyelids, and nose. It helps minimize the shine. I have to touch up maybe once or twice.
