NYX Honey Dew Me Up ($17) is a new facial primer inspired by the golden glow on honey. The primer was formulated to neutralizer discolorations and redness while providing moisture and luminosity to skin.
It’s really an innovative product for NYX but I was shocked at the price of Honey Dew Me Primer as NYX is typically very budget friendly at they are toeing the line with a near $20 price tag.
But let’s take a look and see if it is worth it!
NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer comes in a glass jar with a larger spatula to remove product. It’s a light gold almost clear color that has gold flecks suspended in the liquid and texture resembles that of honey although thinner. It has a fresh scent that may be disturbing to sensitive users but I found pleasant although it does hit you in the fact with an alcohol undertone as well!

It contains collagen which promotes very intense moisture. It does contain a very high amount of alcohol which should wreck my skin (alcohol dries me out badly) but actually I was unaffected by it!
I’m possibly the the right and the wrong demographic for NYX Honey Dew Me Up. It seems like it is promoted for those with blemish prone skin so they promote honey as an antiseptic of sorts to calm redness and acne. I actually have no redness nor am I one for breaking out! However, I loved it. It quite reminds me of Make Up For Ever HD Elixir.
At first the texture is honey-like. It’s thick, gooey almost but it melts down like water when it touches my skin and absorbs easily but leaves me very sticky. It does however set to a very smooth, dewy finish that my drier skin adores. It basically smooths over flaky, drier areas and allows my foundation or BB Cream to apply smoother and look fresher since it gives them a nice, even smooth moist surface to adhere too.

The gold flakes aren’t an issue if you were about them. There isn’t any luminosity or radiance that the primer adds nor are you left with flecks of gold on your skin. They seem to just melt down and disappear after application.
NYX Honey Dew Me is an intriguing product. I imagine some might find the alcohol it contains intimidating but personally it didn’t bother me in the least. This is an excellent primer for drier skin! It really injects a healthy amount moisture into my skin and keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day.
Not sure oily skin will adore NYX Honey Dew Me but those with drier skin or those with mature, drier skin are likely to love this!
It’s available now at www.nyxcosmetics.com and well worth the $17!
