Its just ok. NYX definitely has better stuff out there. My friend gave it to me because she wasn't using it, and I have to say if I bought it I would be a bit disappointed. I also find it too expensive for its small size.
I'm surprised by all the negativity about this product, to be honest.
Yes this does contain silicone/silicone derivatives, but when it comes to 'pore filling' products, I don't think there's really any out there that don't contain it for 'slip' purposes.
I don't really have offensively large pores (especially since stepping up my exfoliating routine) that need covering up, but I wanted to try this to smooth over my acne scarring and rough areas of skin (from acne).
I think this does an amazing job of smoothing over those areas, and what large-ish pores I do have are minimized really well.
I love the tube packaging, it's sanitary and you can control the amount of product dispensed really easily.
Also, the fact that it's 20ml and not 30ml of product is actually a good thing imo, I never use up primers within their use by date.
The product comes out as a mousse-like texture that dries to a kind of powdery finish - not the best for dry skin, but it works with a good moisturiser prior to application.
I'm taking off points for it's actual 'priming abilities'; it doesn't increase the lasting power of my foundation that much (maybe 1 - 3 hours? which to me is pretty poor).
Otherwise, pretty great, inexpensive product! Unless I find something better I would repurchase.
...I put that I would repurchase. The truth is though that I wouldn't, but I wanted to be fair. This IS a decent product.
I have oily skin. I think NYX Pore Filler would be much more suited for someone with normal to dry skin. It is silky smooth, and in my opinion a dead on dupe of Too Faced's Primed & Poreless for a fraction of the price. I love that NYX offers quality affordable products.
I have huge pores, & this did an *okay* job at camouflaging them. Nothing spectacular, but worth a try.....
The texture of this has a nice silky feel and is reasonably priced. It is basically a tinted serum. This will cover your pores but you have to use quite a bit. I previousely thought this was translucent but it is slightly pigmented which is how it lends a hand for minimum coverage. I'd personally prefer more product but it was fairly cheap so that compensates for it.
Mediocre primer. Makes my foundation go on smoother but doesnt really do anything for my pores. It actually works better as an eyeshadow primer than a foundation primer, which is what it's being used for now.
This was horrible. The texture is really weird, nothing like I was expecting. My pores show quite a bit and it did absolutely nothing to hide them. Complete waste of money.
I didn't feel like this covered my pores. I have large orange-rind pores on my cheeks that I'd love to cover. Yet I can't use products with silicones 'cause I'll break out. And the fun part is that this has silicones in it. Which means I broke out in acne all over my face. Joy. I would not recommend this product to anyone acne prone. If you're in the lucky category of not reacting poorly to silicone, go buy this up.
Not a bad primer. This is the first primer I've ever used and I'm impressed. I'll definitely look at others but I'm sure I'll come back to this. It leaves my skin soft and makes it easier to apply concealer and foundation...ESPECIALLY my concealer for under my eyes. The formula itself has a beige color to it but it does not apply to your skin the same color...it's actually unnoticeable. When you squeeze the product out, it does come out in a weird texture. I do not notice if it really fills in my pores because I didn't really buy it for that purpose. I did try it on my boyfriend for the heck of it to see if it helped conceal his big pores...and it worked for him so pretty sure it does the job a bit for myself. Anyways, this stuff works and everything applies smoother after application so I will repurchase.
Love Love Love, fills and smooths pores very nicely. It reminds a lot of my now previous favorite Dr Brandt Pores No More, which is like 45.00 bucks a tube. NYX Pore filler comes out of the tube as a light beige mousse, very creamy and smooth (the color translates to the skin as clear so no worries on that). I simply squeeze a little product onto a concealer brush and pat the product into my trouble spots with large pores but I am sure fingers would work just as well. I let the product "set" for about a couple of minutes while I brush my teeth and then proceed with foundation etc..The product does not ball up in anyway and makes the skin look very smooth for the day. I wouldn't say this will give you back pore less baby skin (unless your skin is near perfect and if it is you wouldn't need pore filler anyway) but for us ladies/gents who would like to get back a little of our perfection, even if only temporary, this is definitely a winner!
