How are you all? How is the week coming along? Mine doesn’t seem to come to an end! 😐 These days all I do is wait for weekends 😛 That feeling of not having to set an alarm for the next day is bliss for me ♥
Anyhooo, today I am reviewing a primer I got from my Nyx haul . As I have already mentioned earlier that I have oily/combination skin type..my skin gets really oily at the end of the day. I do wash my face twice a day and keep the oiliness at bay.But imagine you are at a shaadi(marriage) with all that gorgeous makeup done and by mid-day your makeup is draining off your face…eeeeeks! 😐 That’s what an oily face can do to you. So I saw this online and decided to pick it up for such occasions 🙂 Read on to find out how it fared for me.
Product Name: Nyx Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer in Clear/Transparent
Product Price: $13.00 for 30ml
Product Description by Nyx:
Prepare your canvas with our silky primer. The Studio Perfect Primer formula is easily absorbed, creates a smooth surface for foundation, and ensures the longevity of your makeup. Available in 3 shades: Clear (to cover fine lines and large pores); Lavender (to brighten and illuminate yellow undertones); and Green (to conceal redness).
My take on Nyx Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer in Clear/Transparent
After reading rave reviews of these primers, I bought the one in Clear/Transparent.
Packaging: This comes in a black tube which is slightly translucent which makes it easier for you to know when it’s over. Has a black twist-to-open cap and sits tight with no leakage what so ever. It’s about 6 inches in height and can fit in your travel bag easily. 🙂
Texture: The primer is transparent with gel-like consistency and goes on super-smooth on application. I bought this for the sole reason of controlling the oil factor on my face on a long day outside. I have applied this once to a marriage and my foundation did not budge the entire day! I loooove the fact that even by the end of the day, my skin had that dewy shine and not a greasy-oily look. 🙂 I use just a dot amount of the product for every application and that’s more than enough to cover the entire face. Here, a little bit goes a long way 🙂
When I apply my foundation on top of this, the foundation blends like a dream. The only con I see about using a primer is the presence of Silicone in it. And I make sure I don’t use it on a daily basis because of that con.
Pros of Nyx Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer in Clear/Transparent:
- Travel friendly
- Sturdy packaging
- Goes on super-smooth
- Gives a wonderful base for makeup
Cons of Nyx Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer in Clear/Transparent:
- Presence of Silicone in it
- Availability in India 🙁
The Jeromy Diaries Verdict
On the whole, this is one product that will stay in my stash for those days when you need to attend a day-long event and don’t have time to freshen up. 🙂 A must if you have oily skin.

nice review Jeromy 🙂 but do a review on less silicon for daily basis… if there are any ….. <3
Revathi, most primers are silicone based 🙁 Can’t actually find primers without them.
