The Best Seller NYX Marshmallow Primer Review of 2023

Marshmallow primer? Well, we all love sweet marshmallows but a marshmallow primer is something that excites us because marshmallow extract is not a common ingredient that we find in a makeup primer.

Nyx Cosmetics introduced the Nyx Marshmallow Soothing Primer and no wonder it’s the brand’s best-seller product which means MakeupShift has to try this primer for the honest review for its loyal audience.

Like the Nyx Fat Lip Oil, Nyx Marshmallow Primer also went viral on social media platforms as many Beauty Content Creators and Makeup Artists shared their makeup looks using the marshmallow primer which raised its hype.

But, does it live up to the hype?

Nyx is one of the best OG’s affordable makeup brands we have period! But, evaluating a product based on the brand’s popularity is not fair.

So, our editors at MakeupShift tried and tested Nyx Marshmallow Primer for a good 2 weeks because getting an honest review out of any product can not be done in one use.

If you want to know whether or not the Nyx Marshmallow Primer is worth the hype or your next go-to primer, keep on reading!

The Nyx Marshmallow Soothing Primer comes in a cute, pastel-colored bottle with a pump dispenser that’s both functional and visually appealing. The packaging is travel-friendly, making it easy to toss into your makeup bag. The twist-off cap ensures the product stays secure and is mess-free.

·         Formula

The 10-in-1 Nyx Marshmallow Primer is a clean beauty product its vegan and cruelty-free formula makes it a great addition to your makeup routine.

The formula of this primer is water-based, soothing, and very hydrated. The primer has a whipped cream-like formula that glides on the skin like butter and intensely hydrates the skin by providing the right balance or glow to the skin.

What makes Nyx Marshmallow Primer a 10-in-1 multitasker primer is its additional benefits like even out skin tone, extending makeup wear, blurring out pores, and hydrating skin that are not usually combined in an ordinary makeup primer.

·         Texture & Fragrance

True to its name, the texture of Nyx Marshmallow Primer is luxurious, and fluffy like a whipped cream. It feels really soft on the skin providing the marshmallow effect, which is what the product claims.

It leaves a soft-focus finish while keeping the skin fresh and hydrated which makes it the best primer for dry skin and those looking for a primer for combination skin types.

As far as oily skin types are concerned this primer works for oily skin but if the weather is really summery or humid then this might not be the best primer for oily skin as it can make oily skin severely oily which is not what the best primer does.

Coming towards the fragrance of Nyx Marshmallow Soothing Primer, the fragrance of this primer is strongly sweet like vanilla frosting.

If you have a reactive skin type or your skin is just sensitive to scented makeup products then it’s better to ditch on this primer. However, if you love fragrant makeup products then you will be completely fine with this product.

·         Ingredients

Nyx is a cruelty-free makeup brand which means all its products are clean and 100% vegan. The ingredients of Nyx Marshmallow Primer are all skin-loving, the key ingredient it contains is Marshmallow Root Extract (true to its name).

·         Application

The product claims that it can be applied in just two steps.

  • Take 2-3 pumps of the product on the lid or back of your hand.
  • Take out your makeup sponge and apply it with the help of a makeup sponge focusing on your T-zone or concentrated face areas where you usually apply makeup primer.

The marshmallow soothing extract really works to calm skin irritation and redness which makes it equally great for sensitive skin types.

Notably, it enhances the longevity of makeup for up to 6-7 hours however, the product claims to extend makeup wear for up to 16 hours, which is not true.
