Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good as a primer, better as a serum TLDR; if u like multi use products and saving time whole getting ready... this is a decent serum/primer combo for the money. My mom bought this for me after falling in love with the product herself. After almost a month of playing around with it, I've come to determine I prefer to use this product under my usual primer as a serum. Alone it definitely helps my makeup to glide on and blend beautifully, but I have dry/combo skin and have found using nyx honey dew me up all over face and neck and my usual primer in spots where I crease or tend to be more oily has been most effective in my makeup ritual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Purchase Best Primer ever!!! Was scared to use at first because my skin is really sensitive but it worked out perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I gave this a try! I’ve used this product a few times now and I like it! There were mixed reviews but I try not to read too much into them. The gold flakes weren’t excessive and it dries quickly. I’m excited to try this in the summer when I have my summer glow back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good For Dry Skin! I have very dry skin and this helps my face feel so refreshed. I do have to let it settle in for about 5 minutes before I add my foundation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful, but not a primer and SLIGHTLY drying This product greatly reduces redness withing about 10 minutes after application which is a godsend, but I use it as a serum before my moisturizer, not a primer. When I tried it as a primer, it didn't do anything to help my makeup, but it didn't make it worse either. When I say it is slightly drying, it isn't enough to irritate my skin or anything. But I've noticed it dries it just slightly enough that my skin over produces oil to compensate. It's pretty obvious (I know my skin well enough to be sure) that this is due to a slight drying affect and not moisturizing properties or the "dewy" affect. My skin is VERY sensitive, so this didn't surprise me. I now only use it when my skin is red and patchy and it works great to fix me up quickly those days! I just can't use it everyday without getting overly shiny. This product would be great for people with redness and skin that is not sensitive or easily dried out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super smooth finish! Healthy glow! After reading all the reviews (good or not good) and seeing how fast this was sold out in Puerto Rico, I decided to give it a try. Really worth it! It absorbs super quickly, it doesn’t leave a residue or film over the skin, yet makeup applies so smoothly and skin looks healthy and glowy. This is not a mattifying primer. And it looks good on your skin without makeup. Really loved it!! It smells a bit medicinal but you know its real honey. Will purchase again.

It give a very nice glow to the skin.. I really love it and makes the foundation very long stay!! Higly recommend!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my favorite NYX products! I am currently on my second bottle of this stuff! It’s super moisturizing with a light, fresh scent. I suffer from sensitive and dry skin but ever since I started using this primer, my face is soft and supple. The gold flecks are pretty random and not enough to give you a full face of shimmer, which I like. My only problem is with the applicator. It comes with this little spatula that was cute at first, but became difficult to use when I was trying to get the last of the product. I had to get pretty creative to get the last drops. Lol. Otherwise a great product though! I definitely recommend it as it is worth it’s price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great primer not so great price I love the texture of this primer so much. I love a more liguidy tacky type of primer over those silicone ones. The sad thing is the price is way too expensive for what you get. I mean I remember my first time ever purchasing this, it was around $7-8 and I was like "This is a pretty good price for such a small but good primer". I guess that's not the case anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome stuff ThIs primer is pretty awesome. Works really well under matte foundation. Did not break me out. Didn’t cake like some primers do on my skin. I have oily/combination skin.
Date published: 2018-07-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! As most have already stated, this works more like a serum. No complaints, it helps me fee like I have more oil control throughout the day when I use it. It seems like my face doesn't get as greasy after a day of wearing makeup as it would without this primer. I will say that I also don't believe that the gold flakes are necessary. I don't think they really add anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First primer I ever repurchased! I bought this primer after a co worker recommended it to me. I absolutely love it! I can totally tell a difference in my makeup throughout the day with this as a base. It also helps with neutralizing the redness in my face.
Date published: 2018-07-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love I love that this product takes my redness away. I use it daily under my foundation.. even without foundation it hides the redness!
Date published: 2018-07-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dry foundations and inflamed skin! I have acne and use a lot of oil free fry foundation such as double wear by estee lauder. This primmer hydrates and leaves a great feeling and sticks onto foundation like velcro. My pores look smaller and my skin has more bounce. It keeps flakiness at bay. Good stuff, great for redness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hydrating Keeps my face moist but I'm just a beginner don't take my word for it you just gotta try it to believe it. A little on the heavy side in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product! i love this product! i have combination/oily skin. i see multiple feedback that this product is sticky and not so great as a primer but..... i love this as a primer! that stickiness is awesome when applying foundation it helps keeps my foundation on for a lot longer then most high end primers. and i notice through out the day in hot scorching sun how my makeup doesn't settle into my fine lines. normally without the primer you could see the lines on my forehead and around my smile lines but with this product i see a huge difference. i am 29 yrs of age if that helps any.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I'm a beginner on makeup and can't purchase high end. So I bought this product a week ago and my skin has been looking and feeling great. I do use it as a primer with the NYX total control drop foundation love it ! So far NYX has been one of my favorite drug store brand . Still little pricey for me but can't wait to try more products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love thay it's a serum! I bought this because my skin is dry, sensitive, and sometimes red. I had been looking for a serum instead of a lotion. Most are really expensive but this one wasn't ! It feels refreshing when put on and makes my face feel softer! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I kept hearing about this... I kept hearing about this item all over the social media. Since I was convinced, I got this item. It is very smooth, not sticky, works well (on various skin types), and reduces SOME of the redness, and minor sparkles. I also enjoy the calm smell of this product, it is not as perfume-y as the Hydrating Primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves face silky and hydrated I went to a make up party and they had something similar but the cost was so expensive. So I went to target and bought it there. I applied it first, goes only smooth, not sticky. Face feels silky. Than i applied face cream, that’s it. I don’t wear foundation. I will be 49 in a few months and this product has definitely become part of my beauty care !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Primer!!!! I bought this at ULTA with my rewards points and a gift card because I've seen a lot of beauty gurus online using it. I've never truly found a primer that I've fallen in love with, just ones that are "good enough". However, this primer is an absolute dream. I've recommended it to all of my friends and they have grown to love it as well. It's super hydrating and has a sticky finish that makes your foundation or BB/CC cream sit perfectly. I will definitely be repurchasing this inn the future. I do wish that this was a little cheaper though, that's my only con to this product.

Would this be ok to use with the angel veil Primer? This as a moisturizer and then the primer? Or could this work as both? Or would it be too oily?

Asked by: Michelle_1241
Hi Michelle! It may be best to start by moisturizing with your go-to daily moisturizer. When you begin your makeup routine, prep your complexion using your favorite primer.
