Most Helpful Positive Review Ppppeeeerrrfect !
You will absolutely love this product it's extremely smooth and light as if your rubbing air between your index and thumb fingers one bottle will last you months!!
Perfect primer !!!! Not Creamy not Caked up
Spreads easy. Not messy, nor greasy leaves a smooth natural glow after applied even without makeup and once makeup is applied keeps it on for hours I generally apply make up once a day at 8-9 am but I don't get in to clean my face until around 10-11 and my face is still looking so pretty I consider if I should clean it off lol I love this product great buy it's my second bottle
Most Helpful Critical Review Good primer, but don't really tell a difference in "tone"
I love pretty much all NYX products so usually that's what I gravitate to when it comes to buying face products bc they are so inexpensive. I had recently gotten over a terrible case of breakouts, and I thought this might help with the dull skin that seems to come up after clearing my skin from the spots, plus the mild discoloration I have from premature age spots. I read reviews before purchasing, and went ahead and said let's do this! I tried it, and though I didn't notice a difference in my skin tone really it's still a good primer for allowing the application of your foundation to go on smoother and last longer. I was just hoping the purple tone was going to brighten up my dull yellowish brown undertones though, and it just seemed a bit lackluster on that account. I just felt like it blended in and didn't leave even the slightest lavender tone. I know for some this is a good thing, but if it's supposed to be a lavender primer I thought it might do what it says and create a bit of a shade...even a little. But no. All in all, it's a good primer for a primer, but I wouldn't just go on the fact that it's a "lavender primer" if that's a selling point for you. I still love NYX, but I was hoping for just a bit more from this product.

I use this specifically for special occasions because it helps my makeup last all day
Pokeprincess made me do it
Tiff from Ohio
Loved it. Helped my make up stay on, only complaint is it's a small bottle.. wish there was more product in it.
Didn't blur pores
JJ from WA
Really didn't do much but my face did feel smooth( Most cheap primers can even do that) it didn't blur my pores it wasn't tacky for make up application, what's the whole point of this primer?
It does however feel like the smashbox photofinishing primer and the baby skin but doesn't perform nearly as good as the smashbox one
Comparable to smash box
Halchi from Morehead City, NC
This is like the little sister to smash box primer.. works well, feels super silky, I notice a blurring effect, but it is just one step down from the prestige brands.. I use this for my everyday looks and prestige brands for nights out or special occasions.. good product!!
Probably will not buy this one again
Jo from Alabama
Not quite as priming as some others I have used
Abbey from Florida
- Cruelty Free
- Easy to apply
- Very silicone-y
- Didn't help my makeup last longer than usual
Not worth it
Intlskygirl from Round Hill Va
Felt nice and smooth but doesn't work.
Goes on great, doesn't cover red
Sarah Sp from Moore, OK
I struggle with redness and was looking for a product to help cover it. I've heard great things about NYX products so I was looking forward to an affordable product to help with the redness. Although this product does go on smooth it doesn't truly provide any coverage for redness. You'll definitely need to use a concealer for that. Would buy again as a primer, but not as a redness reducer.
Feels like silk
Kate from Wisconsin
A great alternative to the smashbox primers. This makes my face smooth and eliminates pores. I've been wearing it under my Zoeva Authentik Skin foundation and I love the combo. It helps that one NOT transfer.
Smooth and lightweight.
Taylor from Queens, NY
Works very well, feels silky smooth on my skin. It does take a bit of time to dry, but if you use a clean full blush brush (or the equivalent) on your face after applying it, you should be fine. It dries better that way.
Awesome Redness Corrector!!!
Malynna from Jayess, Ms
I have the red mask on my face because of Hormone issues and this primer covers it beautifully without me having to use a cream corrector also.
Good basic primer
Mel from Az
Good basic primer if you don't want to spend more than $15
My go - to 🥰
Marilu66 from San Bernardino
This was my second best primer. I think it does it's job in setting the make up. I would not trade it because it's affordable and does the same as other higher end brands
NOT worth the money
JessyPie from yorkville
I got this for to reduce redness and help overall even my skin tone. the formula is soo thin it covers nothing and left my face very oily never again
I love this better than Smashbox
Butterfly130 from TN
I've been using Smashbox photo finish primer for a while and I thought I'd give this a try. I absolutely love it. My makeup stays on better and looks smoother. And its about $20 cheaper. My new favorite!
Will buy again!
Anna from Keizer, Oregon
I recently bought this and it works so well for me. It reduces the look of my pores and makes my foundation go on smoothly. The consistency was interesting it kind of felt like an oil but not in a bad way. It also did help my makeup stay in place for a good amount of hours
Primer green to color correct

did that in the pros and cons
Bunny from Irving, Texas
This primer is perfectly priced and it's good. Makeup sticks till I take it off!
In love with this primer!
CJ's mom from Hampton VA
I had been using NYX Pore Filler and random samples of more expensive brands when they came as a bonus with a purchase. I don't even know how I ended up ordering this but it's been in my beauty stash unopened and unused for months and I decided to take it out and use it on a hot, humid Virginia summer day with some MAC powder foundation. I am mad at myself for not using this earlier! The application was so smooth and no breakouts! I am in my late 40's now and my skin is combination. I still use moisturizers on my skin especially around the eye area. . I also have used this under NYX total control Drop Foundation with great results as well. Absolutely a game changer! I will purchase again.
Nyx knows whats up
Tina from Long Beach,CA
I started using this primer bc the one i was buying was like $40 bucks and well as a college student i need to save & guess what this works the same or maybe better than the other smashbox i was using!
Love this primer
MSolis from Terrell, TX
This is an amazing product especially when you use a powder base
Koko Beans from Norwich, CT
I love this primer. I've used it for about a year, I always repurchase every couple of months. It's really similar to the Smashbox photo finish but it's less than half the price! Great for normal or combination skin types.
Great product, love primers, this one removes redness
PrtyBird75 from Garland, Texas
Great product. Love primers, this one even better because it removes redness
Separates, needs shaken, but effective
anjelabug from Seattle, WA
I'm still looking for my HG redness-correcting primer, but this one is pretty good. Once shaken and massaged in the tube, it mixes together again, and goes on silky with no green cast. It's a solid second to Smashbox so far.
Best Dupe for Smashbox!
Alyssa from Phoenix, AZ
I've purchased this several times and am in love! The Smashbox Photo Finish primer is my all-time favorite, but since its pretty expensive, I went on a mission to find a good dupe for it. Four primers later and this is the clear winner! It's not identical to the Smashbox primer, but it's as close as you'll get for this price, and still really good!
