NYX Shine Killer Review

I have been looking for a new primer, so I purchased the NYX Shine Killer from Matas during Black Friday.

I have oily skin, and my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin can especially get oily during the day. The Shine Killer can be used as a primer, over makeup, or alone to eliminate the look of oil and shine. I only used this as a primer because I do not wear primers by themselves or on top of makeup. The Shine Killer is a clear silicone primer that has a smooth texture similar to theย NYX Studio Perfect Primer. I only need a little amount of primer to cover the oily areas of my face. This primer does make my face feel really oily at first, but once it has dried, my face looks matte. Like with the Studio Perfect Primer, my makeup applies smoothly and blends easily. If I do not use a setting spray, my makeup will last a few hours longer than if I did not use a primer, and my makeup will stay matte and my face will remain oil-free for most of the day (around 5 hours). I do recommend using a setting spray with this primer because my makeup lasts all day or night and my face stays oil-free longer. This primer is somewhat small, but it is definitely more affordable compared to higher end primers.

Overall, I would recommend trying the NYX Shine Killer if you have oily or combination/oily skin because this primer does help my face remain oil-free for most of the day.
