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.

An absolutely horrible product. A. Did not cover my redness AT ALL and B. Made my makeup actually slip off my face which I never have had a problem with other primers.
kk from Phoenix, AZ
I bought this primer because I have redness from acne scars but it didn't seem to help the redness at all. The formula felt nice on my skin though it wasn't greasy or anything.

I did notice my appearance was more blurred, matte, and softer after applying but I did not notice much besides that and didn't see a primer difference.
BrownSugaa from Sylmar, Ca
This primer is so amazing. It makes your face smooth and blurr. And doesn't dry you put or cling to dry patches ( if you have them). As always shake it before you apply otherwise, you'll get mostly the oil.
Great Performance and Price
Manders from GR USA
I have fair skin , with some redness issues due to acne scars, and sensitivity . Maturing skin.
Studio Perfect Primer camouflages most redness except one or 2 of my deepest red/brown spots - I need a lil extra concealer there.
It applies smoothly , ready for my foundation in a few minutes - I always give my primers a bit of time to do it`s thing.
My foundations go on smoothly and evenly after the primer. My skin looks smooth and soft, and fresh.
My makeup lasts all day into the evening without any separation or touch ups.
I have maturing skin , and found this primer helps to keep my makeup from settling into fine lines , my skin looks less textured. It does not dry or make annoying flakies on my face.
The price was right ... especially going over other reviews comparing the primer to more expensive brands.
A must have before applying concealer or foundation!
NikGinEvy from Illinois
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! I have tried many primers and this one is the best! Goes on velvety smooth and helps blend concealer and foundation evenly and completely.
I would buy it again

Love product work great, no heavy
Teresa from CA Fresno
I have always had red cheeks. I've tried different product's. Nothing seemed to work. My good friend told me about this product few year's ago. Since then this product work's really well with or without makeup.
Charlie from Tennessee
Tried it based on reviews but would not buy again.Too oily and doesn't do that much for me.
Absolutely love this primer
Lisa from Oklahoma City, OK
Great product for the price. Works just a great as prestige brands. Only pitfall is that sometimes it needs to be shaken before use or watery like substance separates from primer.
Buy it !!
Liz from LA
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!
