NYX Pore Filler Makeup Primer Review, Swatches: I have had an acne prone skin since my teenage. I use to feel so unfortunate because of my skin type, growing older I started noticing open pores in my cheeks and around my nose. Since then I always search for products which could hide these imperfections and at the same time do not increase it.

My Experience

As I mentioned I was confused if this product is going to work for me or not, I still decided to purchase it. However I feel it is expensive for the quantity you get. In fact, I got this for INR 1425 for 20 ml of product. I purchased it online and when I swatched it on my wrist, I was delighted to see the results. I could feel my skin very smooth instantly, but I was yet to try it on my face. This product is talc free, oil free and has silicon as a major ingredient which helps you achieve smooth and even skin.

Initially while applying this under my foundation, I used it like any other cream based primers and couldn’t see much difference. After a couple of such trials I realised that it is best to dab it only on problem areas, this way I could achieve smoother look. Its texture is very similar to Lakme absolute mousse foundation. At first it seems granulated but as I blended it in it was all smooth and even, and it leaves your skin with a powdery finish.

Brand claims that it can be worn under or over your foundation, but I have only used it under my make up as a primer. I am yet to discover what results it’ll give when applied over the foundation.

Beauty experts says that its close dupe is Benefit POREfessional primer, I have that too but never used it over this one and its lying in my vanity as it is.

Talking about wearability it does not control oil on my face and stays good for 4-5 hours. If you are consistently out in summers than wearability falls to maximum 2 hours. This time may vary if you have dry or normal skin. I have super oily skin and sweat like anything, so result may differentiate.
