I hadn't worked with glitter much and was nervous because it has the tendency to stick to everything and have too much fall out. This glitter primer does the job. Period. Smooth, satiny application and picks up every piece of glitter. I had an unfortunate incident where I fell asleep with a glittery eye look and when I woke up, my other eyeshadows had worn off, but the glitter was still in place exactly where I had applied it. This primer also works great as a base to enhance the color of the Nyx Pigments. Haven't tried it with lips yet, but for glittery eye looks, I am sold.
I was looking for a reasonably priced glitter primer and was excited to see this from NYX, especially since the packaging is cute! I will say, it definitely made my glitter eyeshadow show up better, and it also reduces fallout significantly. It also makes my eyeshadow last longer, unfortunately it could not survive my crease. I have normal/dry skin and hooded eyes, and my eyeshadow wore away badly in the crease and set into folds. The regular primer I use (which is high end) does not do that. Granted this keeps the glitter on well, so I'll probably continue to use it, but I will do so only on the flat planes of my eye where I want the glitter to stick, so I'll have to use two primers on heavy glitter days (which isn't ideal). I was hoping to find my new everyday eyeshadow primer (because i do where a lot of glitter) but I've just incorporated another product into my stock.

I bought this primarily to use with my favorite shadow that's my HG color, but unfortunately has a lot of shimmer fallout. Success! This NYX primer vastly improves the situation. I find it too tacky for use for every shadow, but it meets expectations for holding glitter/sparkles/shimmer types effectively in place. Note: use sparingly; a little goes a long way.

This creases even before you put on eyeshadow. It feels like I'm putting on glue or something because it feels kinda tight & sticky. I think I may be allergic to it as well!
Shelby from Tennessee
I use this for metallic shimmers to make them pop, and it definitely extends the wear. The shadow doesn't lose its pop all day!! This is a holy grail for me, for sure.
Marina from Lawrence, KS
I purchased this and glitter for my congregation carnival and the glue was a must-have. It comes out white but dries clear and it definitely helps the glitter stay a lot better. It does not leave a film and it can easily be applied over color.

I have't tried any other product of THIS kind so I can only speak for NYX. If there is glitter it WILL be on my face I've tried every trick in the book and bought products recommended for no fall out, but yet there it was all over me. This stuff keeps most of it in place.

My go to eye primer even when I'm not wearing glitter. Awesome for use with any shadow
Ry from New Jersey
I love nyx and anything nyx this product was a hit or miss with me, love the way the glitter sticks keeps glitter from getting everywhere but when first put on it burns first time putting it on I was scared I was gonna get an infection but it's not bad after u know it's not gonna do anything bad. It's just drying down because it's sticky, during competitions it's amazing when keeping glitter in place all day also tip for the girlies who like cute nose highlights: if u take a thin eyeliner brush dip into the product and put a tiny amount of it in the shape you'd want on ur nose and then put the highlighter on top stays all day better then using a highlighter stick or free handing it I recommend if you like glitter a lot!

Barb from Washington State
I wear make-up daily and actually got this from Ipsy. I was so glad to find this at Ulta as I have used/tried A LOT of other brands, several at a much higher cost, and this product keeps the color of my eyeshadow, stays on all day, and takes a very small amount to be effective. It's not oily and I do not have creases.

This is a must have. It makes any shimmer shadow pop and is comfortable. There was an urban legend going around that this has been D
discontinued but apparently it is not true.

This primer is FANTASTIC!!
Kari from America
Will purchase again once I run out

Doesn't work well as a glue for me. Lots of fallout after wearing but does look great at first. Part of how this product will work for you has to do with application. If you don't know how to apply glitter, yes it will probably go everywhere. I prefer not use glitter at all with this but use it more as a primer for shimmery eyeshadows and it's fantastic. Make sure not to try to "blend" and instead DAB. Also as other people said, the tip breaks off. I had to store this in a sealed container to keep using it.

Just bought this a few hours ago😖😞 I was so excited...I put it on my eyelids exactly as advertised on packaging and it burns so bad🔥 🔥 🔥
Kenzie from Greensboro, NC
I love this product but it does burn when you apply to the skin.
Any glitter at all would fall all over my face. This works to keep it where it should be.
Marisa from Riverside, ca
The tip breaks off every time…. This is my third one. I'm looking for a replacement.
Christy from Los Angeles
so frustrated with this product. works well, but the tips break! I've bought several, and it just lives in my makeup bag. I'd rather get UD anti-aging or NARS.
Ace from Idaho Falls, ID
It works great! It dries clear. I don't use it all over the lid, just where I'm going to apply Glitter, shimmers + such, and there's minimal fallout when I use it as a base for that!
Dicki from Chicago, IL
Works really well to help shimmer shadows that don't perform as well stick and prevent creasing with good color payoff. I primarily use this with Juvia's Place and 100% Pure shimmer eyeshadows and wouldn't use them without it again!
Jessika from Ca
I use this primer for glitter or regular eye shadow and it stays on all day or all night. So worth it buying is my favorite everyday use.
Bethany from Lansing, IL
I use this EVERYDAY. My glitter shadow last over 10 hours. Hands down THE BEST. Don't bother using your glitter shadow without this - it also makes your glitter VIBRANT!
alice from california
you could see the individual creases after a few hours and some eyeshadow and glitter transfer below my eye
Amanda from Williamstown
I was getting low on my other eyeshadow primer and wanted this one again since it works great. Use it for any eyeshadow.
