  • "this primer is amazing and super affordable! i've tried other brands and came across this one day in my local drug store and decided to give it a try and i'm so glad i did. i was pleasantly surprised of how light it was and how smooth my foundation looked on top of it. i have sensitive skin and was nervous of breakouts or of it making me oily but it did none of the above! going to try more nyx products going forward :)" in 450 reviews

I switched to this after using the NYX “Pore Filler” as I noticed more breakouts on my naturally oily skin from the other and I love this one! The packaging is sleek and looks professional and it’s extremely affordable like most NYX products. With this liquid primer a little goes a long way. My skin looks natural, smooth, and glowing using it with both my liquid foundation and my powder foundations. It’s smooth going on and is definitely one of my go-to products that I use in my everyday routine. I highly recommend this for anyone on a budget or looking to try something new!

I just got this nyx primer and I was kinda weird about trying it because I do love my smashbox! So when I tried it I was in completely stunned about how great this nyx product was and how much it compared to the smashbox!!! I do feel like I’m cheating on smashbox but with the price tag on this one it has won my heart! Now I’m really gonna put it to the test and see if it will last all day!!!

My skin is very hard to work with when it comes to makeup. Nothing I buy really like to stay on my skin. I bought this a while ago and put it on my face before applying my foundation (L’Oréal infallible pro-matte) and it didn’t really do the job for me. My makeup separated and it just didn’t stay on as long as I think it should’ve. But I read something about mixing your primer with your foundation, so I tried it out. I applied my foundation on the back of my hand and then my primer on top and hen mixed it together. My makeup went on to my face SO smooth, and even gave me more product. My face looked 10 times better and the one thing I was hoping for: IT STAYED ON ALL DAY ! I went to school not worrying about it separating or sliding off my skin, and it even lasted when I took a nap. I gave it 4 stars because it didn’t work when I put it on before my foundation, but heck it worked amazing when I mixed it!

For a drugstore brand, this is a solid product. However, it was a mild irritant for my very sensitive skin so it definitely wasn't for everyday use-- special occasions only. The formula uses a lot of silicone, as do most primers, so having less sensitive or oilier skin is probably better here.
It does keep makeup in place all day so it definitely does the trick if you don't suffer from breakouts with the slightest bit of silicone like me!

This primer is really a hit or miss situation. I notice that when I use less makeup, I don't experience any blotchyness and my makeup remains in tact. However, I have completely embarrassed myself with doing a full face with this primer. I went into work looking like a doll and 1 hr into it, I looked in the mirror and seen I was a hot patchy mess. I would on recommend this product for light makeup.

NYX Studio Perfect Primer is so good 😊 like look at how amazing my face makeup looks😍 not to mention I had the best beauty blender to blend it out with thanks too the original beautyblender® beauty queen limited edition pink original 😍 goes on so smooth and feels so weightless. I put on my face with my fingers!

Oily consistency but dries/absorbs quickly. There isn't anything terribly wrong with this product but there's nothing great either. I didn't really notice a difference when using this versus not using a primer at all. 

I have very sensitive skin but luckily this primer doesn't irritate my skin or make it break out after use. Overall, it's not for me but could work for some.

This is the perfect dupe for Smashbox! I love how NYX offers quality products that’s affordable. I use primer every time I put on makeup. As you can imagine, that means running through this product quickly. For me, I can’t justify spending so much on a product that’s going to run out within a month or so. I love how silky it is! It makes it easy to spread and it definitely helps my makeup keep in place. Definitely recommend for all you ballers on a budget 😏

My mom bought this product as a primer for a gala and used it once and then gave it to me. It looked great on her she just doesn't typically need a primer that's why she gave it to me. I used the rest of the container and absolutely loved it. I haven't bought it again but I would if I regular used a primer. It feels great on the skin and works well!

I'm not usually a primer person, I don't notice much of a difference in wear time.. etc. That being said Nyx's Studio Perfect is apparently a dupe for a Smashbox primer. I love dupes and wanted to try this product. It has a watery consistency, yet feels silky as you rub it into your skin. I noticed my pores looked reduced, and my skin appeared hydrated. As I applied foundation, I noticed for once my makeup wasn't looking cakey (usually when I wear primers it changes my texture and makes makeup sit on top of my face) and actually blended into my skin. I did not notice a longer wear time, but the overall appearance of my foundation did look flawless.
