This product worked pretty well for what it was made for. I tend to have combination skin, that can get very oily at times if I don't apply a moisturizer or something to my skin in the morning. I use this alone because I don't wear any face make up on a normal basis, so I can't speak on how it works with make up but it does a good job at CONTROLLING my oil. I wouldn't say it eliminates the oil completely, but compared to other things I've used it works better. In a perfect world I would have oil free, dewy skin but that doesn't exist :-( . I like the way my skin feels when I put it on. I'm only giving it a 3 because I'm not sure how it works with anything on top of it.

I was super excited to try this bc I have really oily skin and a lady at target recommended it to me. Once you put it on it makes your skin so soft and silky and I loved it- but 30 min later when I was still working on the rest of my makeup my face started getting so oily. I had to blot my my face for the rest of the day every 5 minutes. I think it even made my skin more oily than it couldve gotten and it pretty much made all my makeup slide off and look terrible. I love nyx but this product did not go well with me.

I would like this product better if it were cheaper. It sort of did what it was supposed to do, but did not last long enough for my liking. I need something that will get me through a whole shift at work, and this was not it. Also, the paint on the cap flaked off and I could not use this product without getting some of the black flakes on my face.

It blows my mind when a product does the opposite of what it's supposed to do. That's the case with Shine Killer. I didn't think it was possible for my skin to get any more oily than it already is, but this made me more oily. My makeup was sliding off my face and I was maxing out an oil sheet every hour or less. I used it for one terrible day, and began breaking out the next morning.I'm a fan of the packaging, and the texture of the product itself is good, and it was easy to smooth on.But I would never ever use this again.

This is a good primer for oily skin. Definately makes your make up last longer and helps control shine. Doesn't make me break out like other primers either :).

I have extremely oily skin- my face is greasy within an hour after application. This stuff is the first primer I've used that controlled the oil all day - and I have tried so many primers for oil control. It works. I will buy it again. I payed $16 and I don't mind. I've paid up to $30 for ones that didn't work for me.

I don't know if this exactly "kills shine" but it does make a nice base, its not your typical silicone feel either, its almost like a wet gel. No over powering odours which I love, but again I look shiny still and it doesn't keep it at bay. I payed roughly $12 in the U.S. because it's cheaper there then in Canada which was quite alot for a primer that does nothing except smooth out your base, i'd rather pay twice as much for something that mattes me down and keeps the oils under control. I have oily-combo skin

This doesn't exactly kill shine; more like temporarily blocks it. And when I say temporarily, I mean like... within 10 minutes the shine is back. The bottle says use as a base, wear it alone or over makeup. I have tried all three multiple times and none of the methods seem to work for me (side note: I'm trying to mattify my oily skin). Thankfully it was cheap because it does not work at all for me and basically just mingles among my other products for now until I finally decide to get rid of it.

This product was terrible for me! I have combination skin and used it during the day to take away my shine in my T-Zone, this did the complete opposite. I looked like I moisturized my face with cooking oil! if you have combination skin I really would not recommend this.

I have to say that this product works a little too well, thus I took one lippie off for the slightly drying effect this imparts. That said, this rather at-first oily consistency product dries to a clear and light finish on my oily-normal skin. Sometimes my t-zone even feels a bit dry, which is good, but I still want this balance out the oiliness and have a more dewy finish. However, this definitely keeps the oil at bay all day long and works well with the NYX Dewy Finish spray or my MAC Fix Plus. A very effective oil controller, but definitely not for skin that is even slightly dry, this will pretty much flake and dry your skin out. Overall, though a good product for what it is.
