NYX Studio Perfect Primer Review


A good friend of mine had gone to Dubai, and managed to get me back a few things out of the long list I gave him. It included NYX powder blush, eye shadow base and a few nail paints. I so loved all the things, and so badly wished that I could get more from NYX .
Once, over my routine chat with a net friend, I asked if she could send me a few NYX cosmetics as they are not easily available in India. She agreed gladly and has sent me two of my most desired cosmetics from NYX range, this studio perfect primer and cream blush…
Thank you so much Linda, I hope you are reading this. I owe you a lot for this favor. 🙂

LAVENDER- to brighten and illuminate yellow undertones and
GREEN- to reduce the appearance of red tones.

The one that I chose was lavender since it Claims to brighten & illuminate yellow undertone..

Each primer is priced at $12.00 for 1 fl .oz. / 30 ml
I got the cream blush too ($6.50), and the shipping for both the products costed me around $8. In total, it came around Rs.1700 for both the products.

My experience with Nyx Studio Perfect Primer

The lavender color made me a little apprehensive about the product initially, but now I am in absolute awe of this product. The texture is so smooth & feels like some butter. It spreads so easily on the skin and feels lightweight on as well.. I usually forget that I’m wearing it. I’ve had no issues with the formula causing breakouts or clogging pores, so I’m happy with that. The primer has very mild fragrance which is very bearable. I was also amazed at how wonderfully it softened my skin, I so wish I could use daily in place of my moisturizer :p Since, it is a bit expensive & not easily available; I will be restricting it to my party make ups only.

What I like about Nyx Studio Perfect Primer

  • By far “THE BEST PRIMER” I have used till date.
  • My skin feels extremely smooth when I have this on.
  • Works really well on reducing pore size.
  • Foundation spreads so evenly, effortlessly, like a magic and remained fresh for good 3-4 hours.
  • You just need a pea sized amount for the whole face, so this will tube will last me for good.
  • Does not break out my otherwise sensitive & acne prone skin.
  • I love it for the wonderful glow it gives with no extra greasiness.
  • It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all.
  • Convenient , hygienic tube type packaging

The only part I don’t like about this primer is the almost non availability in Delhi/India and the price factor.

Will I buy it again?
Absolutely, I have already asked my friend to send me another of this tube along with more NYX & ELF stuff. 🙂

IMBB rating : :-* :-* :-* :-* 4/5 , – 1 for non availability.

    Hi all- can any1 suggest basic or “absolute must” make up products and brand a gurl shud always hav with here..i mean i m on my make up and body spring shoppin spree..so takin every1’s advise as wht shud i buy…so appreciate if any1 wud let me know wht basic products and brands shud i carry or shud be der in every gurls makeup box..?? thnks.. 🙂

    1. hi preeti.. must havs list can also be long depending on ur choice as whether u use foundation/TM, compact/loose powder, gloss/lipstick, cream/powder blush & the eye makeup stuff like kajal,liner,mascara, eye pencils, e/s etc.. so wht r ur plans..

      1. hey nids..thnks for the suggestion..d thing is i hav oily skin and i want to buy basic makeup products which can be used daily..and for tht i m confused as to wht brand shud i go for (without putting a huge dent to my budget ofcourse 😛 ).. and also my cuz sister is getting married and i do not have any idea wht make up products r being used basically..in normal day to day routine i use-UV Derma gel based sun block, TBS strawberry flav lip balm,TBS Moroccan rose body mist and coloured eye pensil..:)

        1. sorry for the late reply preethi.. if u wanna attend a marriage then i think tht u shud opt for a good foundation first..if u dont want to go in for high end products then u can chk out the Lakme invisible foundation or Revlon Touch & glow foundation both under 200/- & can be used on a daily basis too..
          if u hav dark circles or.. then go for a concealer too.. i think Avon/Oriflame have nice concealers at reasonable prices.. buy a compact maybelline/Lakme-both r good..
          Kajal again Lotus & lakme satin kajal tops the list..
          for party wear u can opt for glitter liners by lakme(just launched)..& u already said u use colored eye pencils so whtevr suits u..
          blush-maxfactor or colorbar…
          hope it helps u… :)) :))

  9. excuse me but can you tell me if this particular primer can be used on oily skin as i have oily skin and makeup runs out like in a few hours…. Also this product claims to “brighten and illuminate yellow undertones” wat is this supposed 2 mean? does it enhance the yellow-ness of skin? i tend to look pale due to low hemoglobin levels and would like to look rosy rather than a sickly yellow………
