Most Helpful Positive Review Much better than e.l.f
I bought this primer after a friend of mine who is a HUGE NYX fan recommended it to me. I've been previously using a lip primer by e.l.f. and while it worked, it went on as thick as a lipstick and did not stop my liquid lipstick from bleeding. This primer does everything that the other one couldn't.
Yes, it is sheer and doesn't show up very much compared to other primers, but it doesn't really need it. I like that it goes on with a sheer chapstick feel, and I let it settle for a bit while I put on my foundation and eye shadow primer. It works like a champ keeping my lip liner and lippies from bleeding and my lips don't dry out as fast as they used to.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not What I Expected
I bought this hoping that my lipstick would last longer but that is not how it worked for me. When I applied it, it did not go on smoothly and I found out that it dried out my lips. It also showed any imperfections that they contained. When I put lipstick over it I found that the lipstick didn't go on smoothly and the color didn't go on evenly.

I absolutely need a lip primer base to keep my lipstick on for a while. This one works well for me. It is not fantastic and doesn't help keep the lip color on for hours, but it does a good job for my needs.
Didn't love it
Conmom from SoCal
This product was probably better suited to someone who just wanted staying power for a color they were going to layer over the top. I was hoping it would hide my discoloration before I added sheer color but it just didn't work for me
Best lip primer ever!
ClauduaM from McAllen, Tx
I been wearing this lip primer for so long, it's the best and great price. Makes my lipstick very durable and stays just in place never runs out the lip border. Great product!
Lady of the Lipsticks from MD
This was my first time using a lip primer and I was hoping this product would help with several lipsticks that weren't applying evenly. The primer was easy to apply and even helped some of my streakiest lipsticks apply smoothly in one coat. Also helped prevent staining from darker lipsticks. Would buy again!
Not long lasting at all
Viktor from US
This didn't work at all. It felt smooth and honestly just seemed like expensive chapstick... doesn't make any form of lip color, gel, lipstick, gloss etc last at all. Disappointing.
Worked for me
Tisha from WA
I was excited to use this product and I was not disappointed. I made sure to prep by moisturizing my lips the nights prior with a thick balm after using the nyx lip scrub so as to have a smoother canvas to work with the next day. I wasn't sure which color to go with initially but ended up having picked the perfect shade, nude. It helped with a lipstick I have that isn't nyx; that feathers like that's its job. And I was impressed to see it had drastically reduced the feathering!
Reading other reviews I'm surprised it didn't help other with making their lipsticks last longer. When I use it with my liquid suede lipsticks it holds it's own even during and after meals.
Smooths but does not...
Glamapuss from Los Angeles CA
This item smooths my lips, helps with feathering tho so does any lip liner, but it does not extend the wear of lipstick at all, no matter the type of formula. When they make a product that makes lipstick last, that company will make so much money and as lipstick is the only product besides eyeliner that I cannot live without, I will be buying it like crazy.
Why did I wait so long to get this?
MoreLikeMom from TX
I've noticed more feathering and dry lips as I age. My lipsticks began sliding off my lips or just "vaporizing" during the day. When I draw it on early in the routine, it feels like a mild lip balm. I didn't notice a scent, and no greasy feel. After I lined my lips and applied the lipstick, the color lasted far longer and moved around less. The color degrades gracefully much slower now through multiple meals and beverages. When I remove my lipstick, I'm noticing less stains on my lips. I'll buy this again and suggest it to friends.
I Love this stuff!
Mary U-S from California
I love this stuff. I have fine lines around my lips, and I've tried many different products that claim to prevent lipstick from "feathering" (urban decay ultimate ozone, MAC prep & prime, and e.l.f. studio lip primer & plumper, among others); but NYX Lip Primer in Nude works the best for me. I don't actually use this as a primer on my lips; I mostly use it around the outside of my lip line to prevent lipstick color from bleeding into the fine wrinkles around my lips.
I should add that the other colors of NYX lip primers besides Nude don't work for me; they look like I smeared the wrong color makeup all around my mouth whereas the Nude color is invisible. Maybe this is because of my very fair complexion.

This lip primer is a good deal and is terrific at keeping my lipstick in place all day. I wear a bold red lip, so I am impressed that this hero my color in place and prevents smudging and wear.
Best lip primer

Lasts forever , keeps lips soft and smooth, easy to use and inexpensive
Great product I didn't know I needed
Mel R from New Mexico
I bought this to have a base for my liquid matte lipsticks. From the get go I found this very moisturizing. I was worried about the color when I bought but it gave very sheer nude coverage that I was very happy with. The one lipstick I was hoping to improve was not as flaky as it was the other times I've worn it nor was it as drying. I thought the color came through better but I didn't think it was necessarily longer lasting (it may be the brand because I've found this brand to not last as long anyway. Overall I think this is a great buy and I look forward to trying it with my other lipsticks as well.

I would buy this again
Pugsleys mom from Atl, Ga
I've read some of the reviews, still bought it. For me, right color, very long lasting to hold a lip line in all day and drinking. 8 hours my line is still their. Everyone's skin is different, this works on my fair skin, love it!
NA from El Paso
Diesn't Cover the lip, I am not sure if this is intencionally designed to be translucent. I did not notice any difference between using it as a primer it without it, and then lipstick over it.
Not worth it
AriQuinn from SA, Tx
I LOVE the MAC lip colorless primer and always prefer it to any other primer out there. My mom was short on cash and decided to try out Nyx's primer. We went out to eat, she used her primer, I used mine......end of lunch my lipstick was still in tack hers was non existent. There's no point to a primer if it doesn't hold any color on your lips after one meal. Now I understand if the lipstick fades after eating but there should be SOME color left. This primer holds NOTHING.its basically a chapstick. I will admit it's soft and creamy but that's about it.
Ulta 4eva from USA
Only need a thin layer around entire lip
Line and lips and lip stick stays on forever and doesn't feather ! Best lip primer by far especially for the price! If you put on too much it may "clump" as described by some reviews but I question the application more than the product. I have everyone hooked on this primer
Cracked and burned lips
Grace from Pennsylvania
My cousin and grandmother have tried this product. It BURNED and CRACKED their lips and my cousin was so sad cause she actually liked how it looked but it ruined her lips for at least three days. I wouldn't try it but it's different for everyone I guess.
Ginger3 from Pennsylvania
I use this everyday before I apply my lipstick. Although it doesn't make my lipstick last all day, it does however keep it from feathering!
Love this product
Kayla from Spokane
This is a great primer. I use it under heavy colors and it keeps my lips looking even and soft.
