Don't Leave Home Without It!I've been using the NYX Pore Filler for about six months and it has become a non-negotiable step in my face prep. It smooths my skin and the large pores on my nose and cheeks are virtually invisible so my foundation doesn't pool and polka dot! I usually only use it on my nos and cheeks but if I have a heavy or hot day ahead I will use it all over for a perfect matte start.
Tip: Pat into the skin so it fills your pores; don't just wipe it over the top. I've found it works best with a bounced sponge or dense stipple application so you don't wipe it out of the pores. Or, if you prefer to use your fingers or a paint brush application for your foundation, use a setting spray between Pore Filler and foundation.

Amazing!I just bought this to replace my MakeUp Forever primer that I've been buying. I read lots of good things about the NYX Pore Filler, so once my tube of MUF Primer was done, I bought this. First of all, the price! I can get two tubes of NYX for less than the price of MakeUp Forever! The texture of the product is very smooth. I have oily skin and larger pores, and I never really found anything that works. This definitely does. I will try the tip that another reviewer left instead of just using your fingers, to stipple the product onto my skin. Definitely recommend this! And very happy!

Doesnt really do muchI was super excited to try this when I ordered it because i've heard good things, but sadly im very disappointed with it. To start, when I using the product for the first time, i very gently squeezed the container to get just enough product onto my fingers. No luck. So I applied a bit more pressure, still no luck. Then added a bit more pressure, and product exploded out of the tube... Totally caught me off guard and was such a waste of product! This happens every single time I use the primer now too. I know how gentle I have to be with these things and have never encountered a problem like this with any other product. Also, the primer doesnt apply very smoothly and feels quite dry...

I use this differently than its usual applicationI have several small but deep ice pick scars on my cheeks and a few in my forehead as well. They have ruined my self-confidence. I used to not dare be any closer to someone than a couple feet so they wouldn’t be too noticeable. I found a pore filling product from Clinique that does a great job but it is pricey and with Sears gone now, I have to order it. I saw a tester for this primer at Shoppers one day and noticed it has the same “fluffy” texture and had a skin-tone shade like the much pricier (compared to amount in each of the tubes) Clinique pore filler. I bought a tube of the NYX primer and used it like the Clinique product, on top of my finished makeup, but before setting powder. And it does fill in texture much better this way in my opinion. I find if I use it as a normal primer it can pull away and leave some texture. Using it over makeup to fill in scars and pores uses much less and achieves a better finished look.

Favorite primer!!I started using this primer a few months ago and I am beyond happy with it! For starters, it lasts a decent amount of time because a small amount of product is enough for my whole face. Secondly, it literally makes my pores disappear and it helps my makeup last all day. I am extremely impresses that even during the summer, this primer helps my makeup stay on all day. It is also my favorite because it does not clog my pores, and therefore it does not cause me acne and allows my skin to feel free. Lastly, this product is super affordable!

It's MAGIC!The best way I can describe this product is that it's like an instant blur filter. Smooths and blurs pores and fine lines, great on its own or under foundation. The texture seems weird when you squeeze it out of the tube (almost crumbly) but don't be alarmed, it goes on silky smooth and weightless. Also, even when I think the tube is nearly empty I can probably get another 2-3 weeks out of it :)

Awful texture, especially if you have dry skinI bought this when I was out of product, but I wish I had done more research! (Note: I've since found my go-to primer in Nyx's Honey Dew Me Up primer but still... I wasted money on this!).
The first time I tried it, the texture was very dry but still resembled what you might normally find in a primer (a creamy, spreadable formula). But each time I used it after that, the product has been a weird, solid, dry "pâté" that spews out in little clumps and will completely miss your hand and wind up in the sink if you aren't careful—because it's more solid than liquid!
My skin type is dry. It would make my already dry skin even drier and left a weird "dusty" residue on the very top layer of the application (and on fingers). That's how dry it is! [I attached a photo but it actually came out creamier than usual...]
I ended up only using it on the oiliest parts of my face and using a different primer all over. The texture can also be improved by adding 1-2 drops of a serum or oil... but shouldn't the formula or packaging be developed so that I don't have to "fix" the product? At full price, it's a rather pricey primer for how little product you get.
To its benefit, it does minimize the look of pores. But the texture it creates if you use it all over is so bad that your pores will be the last thing you worry about. Please, Nyx, redevelop this product.
