Pore Filler does a nice job of smoothing over pores, and it contains several dry-finish silicones that leave a lasting matte finish that keeps excess oil in check. Pores are not hidden entirely (you would need a heavier, more spackle-like product for that), but its thick, silky-smooth texture makes them less noticeable. The fragrance-free formula feels surprisingly weightless on the skin and it has a peachy cream tint that sheers to an imperceptible finish, even on darker skin.


  • Smoothes over pores, making them less noticeable.
  • Lasting matte finish keeps excess oil in check.
  • Thick, silky-smooth texture feels weightless on skin.
  • Peachy cream tint sheers to an imperceptible finish.
  • Wears well under makeup.
  • Fragrance-free.


  • Can’t disguise pores entirely.

This small Los Angeles–based makeup line was founded in 1999 by a woman named Toni Ko. The company's Web site is vague about Ko's background, merely stating that she developed an interest in cosmetics as a teenager (you know, just like about 99.9% of teenage women) and wanted to create her own line of cosmetics. Ko's goal was to produce high-quality products at affordable prices, and that's the draw of NYX (pronounced "nicks") Cosmetics. We are pleased to report that, for the most part, Ko succeeded in her childhood dream.

It is important to note that this line offers a full selection of makeup products, from foundations to lip gloss. However, the only place to access everything NYX Cosmetics has to offer is their Web site. The Ulta chain is the largest distributor of NYX Cosmetics products in the United States, but they carry a smaller selection of NYX products. The good news is that most of the few NYX products Ulta stocks are impressive, especially the powder eyeshadows, which compete evenly with eyeshadows that cost a lot more.

NYX Cosmetics customer service number is (866) 699-1004 or you can visit www.nyxcosmetics.com.

    Smoother looking skin
    • After sunscreen, applying this before undereye concealer, around the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and basically anywhere you have visible pores, my makeup goes on easily and looks good almost the entire day. I also use this on top of sunscreen on my neck and upper chest, which blurs some unsightly lines and takes away that shine that sunscreen sometimes leaves behind, then a light dusting of Paula's powder on top. Sometimes I'll skip foundation as skin looks smooth! Very ready price.

    Definitely a "Best" for me!
    • I use this product specifically to control oil and keep the shine at bay, and it does a fantastic job! It also works great at minimizing pores. I've tried several similar products, and this works better for me than any of them, including Paula's Shine Stopper (sorry Paula!). Pore Filler is similar in texture and performance to the Clinique pore perfecting product that was discontinued a couple of years ago, but seems to work even better at absorbing oil. I stocked up!

    Nice product
    • This is a good product at an excellent value. As Paula indicates it doesn't eliminate the look of pores, but reduces them significantly. I have found that I can dab on a second layer for larger pores that are more difficult to cover with good results. Many pore fillers and primers cause me to break out of overdry my skin. This does not. Makes skin feel soft and reduces oiliness during the day. Had a similar Benefit product in my hand for almost thirty dollars. This was about $12!
