Minimising Your Pores With NYX

Hello you beautiful chums.

NYX Make up is strongly becoming a favourite of mine. Since I discovered that they sell it in Boots Portsmouth – I was totally made up. NYX is one of them brands to me, that deserves a whole lot more recognition for their products than what they already have.

Their liquid lipsticks are insane, creamy and long lasting. Their eyeshadows are totally dreamy and my favourite is the Warm Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette.

However, my latest discovery is this NYX Pore Filler.

This has become a must have within my make up routine. So the purpose of this is that it helps reduce the appearance of pores. It’s a primer so you apply before your base make up, it’s oil free and it smoothes and enhances the look of your skin.


I use this only on my T Zone: my nose, chin and between the brows. This reason, I get super oily here and my nose is the worst for pores. I apply a 5 pence piece, which I then just dab on the product and then smooth it out from the middle –> outwards. I found it instantly fuzzed out my pores, not fully gone – but they were highly reduced in appearance. I think this could be a cheaper alternative of the Benefit POREfessional primer, as it does the exact same job. It’s a velvety/creamy formula which kept my oily t-zone at bay. I struggle with finding primers that help with my oily t-zone as I wear glasses daily, and without this my makeup just glides off with the glasses sliding down my nose. (Lol – need a new pair!) It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, it’s super light weight. My only downside is that it’s quite thick, so when squeezing it out of the tube – a lot of the time the product just falls straight off my skin. I find rubbing it gently between my fingers than applying it – is a lot less messy. 

Other than that, I absolutely love this primer and I’m going to forever be using this within my make up routine. With or without foundation, as it minimises my pores either way. 

Have you tried this Primer? What’s your thoughts?! 

Also what’s your favourite Primer – your go to?
