Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I could give this more hearts I would! I have really sensitive and extremey oily skin. And I was worried that this primr would break me out or it wouldn't really hid my oil. I have been using this product for about 6 days now and I can honestly say it is a gift from the makeup gods. I have not broken out anymore then normal and I have not had a super oily face. I mean there is oil there, but thats a given. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being that my fave is pouring out oil and 1 being dry as a bone, my face was a 9 before, and now it's a 4-5. Which is right where I want it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I really, really wanted this to work for me but its just not. I like a dewy finish and thought a shine eliminator would be better than powder, as you can use it alone, under or over makeup. However, its only April where I live and this isn't even soaking up the oil on my combination, 44 yr old skin now so I am highly doubtful it will be effective for the Summer. I used this under my foundation and then have applied it over it, on my t-zone, and have found that it only works for a very short time before I am forced to blot. I may just return this product for soemthing else...not impressed, especially for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This does what it says. I have oily/combo skin and I put on moisturizer with spf 30 and then this on top. I put it on my forehead,cheeks, nose and chin where I get oily the most and I don't have to worry about being shiny. My foundation stays put and I touch up on powder maybe once or just blot once throughout the day. Love this just as good if not better than high end primers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shine Killer! I bought this product yesterday at Peebles, which is a store that sells some NYX products and overall I will have to say it did work for the most part. I have oily skin and I get really oily on my forehead, nose, and chin. I put the product on and it felt really good going on. I wore it alone and only had to wipe my forehead one time, without this product I would have been wiping it all night. Overall I would say good product and would recommend it. Buy it and try it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO!! Save yourself... i really hate this....partly because i was so excited about it..and then so utterly disappointed when i fianally used it AND because i have oily skin and it just....doesnt make a differeence and its on the more expensive side! Dont be fooled its waaay smaller than u'll anticipate if ur anything like me....i made the mistake of ignoring the negative reviews because i just wanted something to make me less greasy looking but if ur oily...this is more than likely be a dud PLUS it gave me automatic cake-face look .-. even w/ a sheer foundation/bb cream. THE only plus it that it didnt make me break out

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed!!! When I saw this in the store, I got excited, as I have an oily t-zone. Got it home, wore it for 2 days and was extremely disappointed. Not only did it not mattify my face, but I was oilier than ever!!! Where I usually blot my face once a day, I was blotting the entire day to rid my face of the oil. Usually, I love NYX products, but this had to go back to the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works For Me I bought this a couple months ago and I love it. I have tried many different types of primers and I honestly like this one the best. It most closely reminds me of the Smashbox Photo Finish primer but for half the price. It really kills my shine. I have what i guess I would qualify as regular skin. I'm not very acne prone and I get oily in my T zone but not overly so. So for me this was just enough to knockout the shine I seemed to acquire during the day. I use this on freshly washed and moisturized skin and follow up my daily routine with a oil control setting spray and I am matte all day long. Now granted I am writing this in winter so we'll see how it hold up in the summer months.

Can this be used with the Pore Filler primer? What order should they be applied in?

Asked by: dawnsharks
Hi Dawn! Both prep the complexion for your makeup. If you prime with Shine Killer, you might want to use a finishing powder to soften your look. Check out our High Definition Finishing Powder or #NoFilter Finishing Powder.
