Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll never need another primer! I bought this on a whim because Ulta sent me a 20% off coupon, and I was immediately impressed. I have been using high-end primers, which tend to be more smooth and creamy. Because of the creamy texture of some primers, I feel like my foundation tends to slide around or rub off easily. This NYX spray primer was pleasant to apply, and has a nice, tacky feel to it once it begins to dry. My foundation went on so smoothly, and the finish seemed a little more dewy than usual. The ultimate test came when I had saucy buffalo wings for dinner. After wiping my face several times, I did a quick mirror check, and my makeup was still flawless! This primer is definitely a winner, and I will be buying more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works better than I could have anticipated! I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now, and it really does work well. If I'm in a hurry, I'll just mist this on instead of using a regular face primer, though it does work better in conjunction with your face primer. How I like to use it is I apply my regular face primer, then I'll apply any color correcting concealer should I want it, then mist this product over all of that. Then I will proceed with my regular makeup routine. It works well, and I have noticed my makeup stays on smoother and longer than when I don't use it. I will definitely be buying this product again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic in a Bottle This is a first. Maybe other company has this, but it's my first time seeing a spray on face primer. I immediately bought It at ultra because I saw the potential of having it. And I was right. Usually my cream primers are heavy and stiff.I have to work so hard to apply and blend it in, wait for it to dry before applying any makeup. This little spray cuts 3 process out of my routine. It is light and effective. My face din't dry out or breakout which is a plus. I will keep it in my everyday/ Purse makeup bag, since it worked so well with my tinted moisturizer. I'm not throwing my cream primers out just yet. i'll save them for days i can spare more time to do full glam makeup. This is now a staple. Good job Nyx.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my makeup flawless all day! I bought this a few months ago and I absolutely love it, both alone and with other primers, especially the Shine Killer. I have oily skin so if a primer spray by itself can keep my makeup shine-free and good all day (that's from 9 am to about 8 pm), girl you already KNOW it's amazing. Can't wait to repurchase it from the Nyx store that just opened up by me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice coverage for my skin I got this about a month ago and while I don't wear foundation often, it works well. I have a dry skin condition on my forehead and it helps cover it up so it doesn't look so much like skin is peeling right off my forehead like it usually does. I'm happy I found this

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't notice much of a difference Bought this to try out of curiosity. I didn't notice it do much about the wear of my makeup. I did however find other uses for it, such as spraying it on my beauty blender to apply foundation, and spraying after my full makeup application to give that "set" look. Is it a must buy? No. But it can be used as a cheaper alternative for many other products out there on the market. Plus, it's 8 bucks, can't beat that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful My face is oily and I can never get my foundation or eyeshadow to stay for very long, but this product really helped with that. I'll spray it on my face or on my beauty blender before I use it to help it set the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought this looking for a good setting primer, that was easy to use and this is it. Spraying is so much easier than applying with sponge or hands on the face. Definitely will keep using.

Should I spray straight onto my face or onto my beauty blender?

Asked by: Shauna50
Hi Shauna! This primer can be applied either way. You may want to spray it onto a blending sponge if you're targeting specific areas of the face.

I have very red chest area. I use the green primer on my face but a spray would be wonderful. Will this eventually be tinted?

Do you apply this before or after SPF cream of after? Then you let it set till it dries?

Asked by: Julezz
Hi there! Holding the bottle six inches away from the face, shake and spray directly onto clean, moisturized skin. Continue with your makeup routine once the primer sets. xoxo
