NYX Pore Filler

If you like me were always bothered about enlarged pores and wanted a base product that could even out things in the large pore, oily skin department, then this will be right up your street. The product is a filler and primer in one. It smooths out skin's imperfections like fine lines and large pores, allowing skin to appear better and all prepped for makeup application. 

The silicon like nature of the product also helps absorb any excess oils on the face, giving you a demi-matte appearance. I quite like that it's not extremely strong and is rather a modern, wearable formula that isn't too pore-clogging or drying, well at least on my combination-oily skin. If you do have dry, mature skin and you're using this to disguise pores then it's wise to exfoliate and moisturise before hand and apply this on top for superficial imperfections. 

For those with fairly decent skin this summer or those who'll just be happy with an even tan, this can work on it's own to keep skin looking matte and even. I also use it around the under eye area for any fine line filling and it does a subtle yet effective job at blurring and softening. 

The product comes out in a light nude shade but applies colourless on the skin and doesn't leave behind a tint of any sort. It's light and fluffy and there's none of that pesky crumbling with over application. For £12.50, it's not a bad bargain at all if blotting sheets alone aren't cutting it for you.

I've been looking for an affordable primer since the Estee Lauder one I have is a bit pricey. Thanks for sharing!
