NYX Born To Glow Iluminating Primer Review


I wanted a new primer so I recently purchased the NYX Born To Glow Illuminating Primer. I've been using it everyday since.

The primer is 30ml and similar to most primers it comes in a squeezy tube. This primer is an illuminator and a primer in one. It aims to make make up apply smoothly with a radiant finish. I have dry skin so I was hoping this would brighten my skin without making my make up flake.

The primer doesn't have any unpleasant scents like some primers. The primer is white with a slight shimmer, once applied to the skin the white turns invisible but still leaves a lovely glow without being overpowering. Although, I wouldn't leave the primer on without putting foundation over the top as I worry it would look to pale. 

This primer doesn't actually claim to prolong make up, I don't think it makes my make up last as long as other primers. But it does help my skin to stay hydrated and leaves a subtle glow through my foundation.

Overall I really like the effect this primer gives and definitely recommend it for dry or dull skin types!
