Not a good one
1.5/5

PROS


As per to the brand, this is a primer which reduces the shine of your makeup and gives you the mattifying effect. However, this does not justify its claim. Although it is a good primer, your skin may feel a bit oilier at some point. This primer is not so good in humid weather. Moreover, it is too expensive and the quantity offered is also too less. You have to pay Rs 1425 for just 20 ml of the quantity. Therefore, it neither justifies its claims nor it has something ‘wow’ in it. It simply acts as a good primer which can let your makeup stay for good hours. Otherwise, one can have much better options available while selecting a good primer.

Even tones

Kills oil


NYX Shine Killer– NYX has introduced the killer primer, and I’m very impressed with how it works. So, I wanted to share the positive and negatives of this primer with you. As per the company description, the primer is oil-free and kills the shine on your face. NYX Shine Killer is everyday usable and go to product for a perfect, even-tones face. The primer can be used as a base for all makeup and can make the makeup last longer. The primer also hides your faultiness on your skin. The primer is easy to use, squeeze the primer on your palm and use your finger to apply dots on your face. Gently blend down from your forehead to neckline. The NYX Shine Killer comes in a very classy black box with all the ingredients. The product comes in a black tube with a black screw cap. The smell of the NYX makeup primer is very good and can easily likable to everyone. The quantity is, which make the product affordable. The primer comes in a pinkish color, and the texture is like smooth and soft cream. The primer is silky that it can glide and blend on your skin effortlessly. The effects after applying are amazing, and it offers a shine-free or matte and smooth finish. I have oily skin, and the primer works well. But for dry skin, I doubt it would provide hydration. The primer is travel-friendly and lasts long. Pink tone of the primer makes the skin brighter and softens blemishes. Only con is having is that the NYX Shine Killer it doesn’t moisturize for dry skin. I would recommend to everyone as the NYX makeup primer has reasonable pricing and last longer.

The silicone finish gives a matte finish. The transparent looking primer definitely keeps the shine off the face, thus increasing the durability of the foundation. The super sleek black tube of NYX Shine killer primer is definitely eye-catching. Although it is not at all cheap and rather priced on the higher side, one should go in for it if one surely wants a silicone based primer. The primer acts as a barrier between the skin and foundation. The primer actually prepares your skin for makeup and makes it stand for longer hours than the usual. NYX Shine Killer is a primer which claims to give a oil free look by killing the shine on your face. The product is enriched with vitamin E which makes the makeup last long and stay true to the color. This primer can be used alone for a oil free look or as a base for a smoother application of a foundation to give a complete matte finish. I have an oily skin. I tend to get oily in 3 hours after I step out of my house. The word shine killer gave me a hope that this product would work for me. When I researched about the product's results, it had mixed emotions and left me confused about buying the product. The product comes in a sleek, black plastic tube. It has a screw type cap. The packaging is pretty good and can be carried in a hand bag while traveling. The price is quite expensive for it's quantity. The primer is transparent in color. It has a gel type consistency. After washing and patting your face dry, take some quantity of the primer and apply it on your face. It gets easily absorbed into the skin. The skin becomes soft and supple. Now you could apply your foundation. The primer blends well with the foundation and gives a oil free look. A primer is the first step of every make up and hence it needs to be just next to perfection as or else it would spoil your entire efforts of make up. I never got that smoothness on my skin which was required for the next stage which is foundation application. Trust me my make up never lasted long in spite of applying this primer so well. Once I applied this and did make up for a party and it was a complete disaster as my face looked so oily and all the make up running down all over my face. Such a huge embarrassment it was. It is nt at all easy to blend on to your skin giving uneven patches to your face. But then this product can be harsh on the skin. It also makes the skin very dry leaving some patches which are visible. It also makes the face look very de hydrated! I didn’t like the product for only this reason.

Kills the shine and makes the makeup more durable Vidhi approves this product

NYX Shine Killer is a silicone based primer which helps in making a face a smooth canvas for the makeup. Primers help in controlling the oils of the face and keep it matte looking for the entire duration of the makeup. Silicone-based primers usually make the skin drier, and it is better if it is used for oily skin. For dry skin, one should go in for hydrating primers. I am not a very regular user of primers because I personally do not apply many layers of makeup, and neither do I have any such eruptions. Primers are more suitable for professional makeup or when somebody wants a perfectly smooth base and want it to stay for long hours. NYX Shine killer primer has a smooth velvety texture with a silicone finish. The silicone finish gives a matte finish. The transparent looking primer definitely keeps the shine off the face, thus increasing the durability of the foundation. The super sleek black tube of NYX Shine killer primer is definitely eye-catching. Although it is not at all cheap and rather priced on the higher side, one should go in for it if one surely wants a silicone based primer.

A good makeup starts with a good primer. I feel it is a must that one should start with a primer in creating a perfect base for makeup. The primer acts as a barrier between the skin and foundation. The primer actually prepares your skin for makeup and makes it stand for longer hours than the usual. NYX Shine Killer is a primer which claims to give a oil free look by killing the shine on your face. The product is enriched with vitamin E which makes the makeup last long and stay true to the color. This primer can be used alone for a oil free look or as a base for a smoother application of a foundation to give a complete matte finish. I have an oily skin. I tend to get oily in 3 hours after I step out of my house. The word shine killer gave me a hope that this product would work for me.

After washing and patting your face dry, take some quantity of the primer and apply it on your face. It gets easily absorbed into the skin. The skin becomes soft and supple. Now you could apply your foundation. The primer blends well with the foundation and gives a oil free look. One of my friend who has an oily skin bought this primer. She lives in a place where the normal temperature is 35-40 degrees outside. She said that the primer didn't work for her and she appeared oily within 3 hours on a summer day. Also she added, the primer melted under hot climate making her concealer crease with sweat and her t zone was a total mess. She was totally disappointed with the product. If you have a very oily skin, then don't get this, it would be a total waste of money and if you have a combination to dry skin you could very well use it.

NYX is surely one such renowned and trust worthy brand that is adored not only in the country but also globally by various make up lovers, professional artists and make up freaks. This brand indeed need no introduction for sure I suppose. But to my surprise Nyx has disappointed me to a very great extent with its newly launched Professional Makeup Shine Killer. I was in a hunt for an efficient and outcome oriented primer and after much online study and off course due to the brand name decided to buy this primer. It is basically a makeup primer that is oil-free and kills the shine on your face. But I do not think that that’s the only function of the primer. A primer is the first step of every make up and hence it needs to be just next to perfection as or else it would spoil your entire efforts of make up. I never got that smoothness on my skin which was required for the next stage which is foundation application. Trust me my make up never lasted long in spite of applying this primer so well. Once I applied this and did make up for a party and it was a complete disaster as my face looked so oily and all the make up running down all over my face. Such a huge embarrassment it was. It is nt at all easy to blend on to your skin giving uneven patches to your face. It creates a whitish cast and a layer on your skin that I used to hate completely. It is surely not worth spending so much on such an use less product. In fact I would rather suggest to check out for other primers and I am pity sure that you would get hell lot of options in the same price range quoted for this one.

NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer is a basic primer which helps your skin prepare well before the makeup or the foundation. The shine totally disappears from the face making the face oil free. Because of which the foundation blends perfectly well. Its definitely a great product for the oily skin users. But then this product can be harsh on the skin. It also makes the skin very dry leaving some patches which are visible. It also makes the face look very de hydrated! I didn’t like the product for only this reason. Packing wise its just fine. Nothing great too talk about!!

Amazing quality

Worth buying


This is by far the bestest primer I have used. The moment first time I used it I was a fan. The texture is amazing , it’s magic (My cousin asked me which primer she should buy I said NYX shine killer she said it’s very expensive. I made her test mine for once and she surprised with the texture) It is a bit expensive but it’s worth every penny spent on it. 💯
