NYX Pore Filler Primer – Review

Hello, all!


A couple of weeks ago I picked up the NYX Pore Filler Primer from the brand’s website. I ordered the regular size bottle (0.67 fl oz) for $14. Like with the Prismatic Eyeshadows you can score a deal with this product by gaining free shipping for purchases of $25+ and 25% off of your first purchase when you sign up for their email list. On Ulta the primer is $13.99 and you can probably get it even cheaper if you purchase it during one of their buy 1, get 1 50% off sales.

Here is what the product looks like:

As you can see, the primer comes out a bit solid and in this nice peach color. Occasionally I have an issue with air filling the bottle, so when I squeeze it, tiny clumps of primer just squirt out which can get a bit annoying. I usually break it up a bit with the pads of my fingers before applying it to different areas of the face where it blends out clear. It leaves the same blurring effect on the skin as the blur feature that I use when I edit my photos, which is something that I am a very big fan of.

The bottle claims that the primer can be used on bare skin, over makeup, and under makeup and I have tried it all 3 ways. I think it’s good for bare skin if you are in a hurry or are having a very, very minimal makeup day because it does offer a great blurring effect and will make your skin feel like doll skin for the rest of the day. I have used it over my makeup and am not the biggest fan of that because it felt like I was just messing up my foundation. The way I most enjoy using it is underneath my makeup. I apply a thin coating all over my face and then add another layer in the center most areas of my face (my nose, the skin around my nose, and the center of my forehead) and wait 3-5 minutes.

In the few weeks that I’ve been using this product, it has become a staple in my beauty routine. There was a period where I was hating every foundation I owned because I felt like it was clinging to and overemphasizing all of the small, surface level bumps and grooves that normally weren’t noticeable on my face. This primer really helped to solve that issue leaving my skin smoother and softer finish.
