NYX Angel Veil Primer | Review

NYX Angel Veil (1).jpg

Hi Darlings,

Today’s post is going to be a review of the NYX Angel Veil Primer, I’ve heard so many great things about this face primer and I got it for my sister for her birthday thinking it wouldn’t work for me.

I decide to test it anyway and fell in love with it. Some people don’t realise how important primer is: the right one can make even the worst foundation the best.

What’s your favourite?

You can get this primer here for 13,92£

The packaging is pretty, I like the squeezy tube as it disperse the right amount of product without wasting any of it. You need don’t need a lot of product, less than a pea-size.

It doesn’t feel particularly fancy but it gets the job done.

When I got it I remember thinking it was smaller than I thought but it’s a standard 30ml size.

This primer feels like a normal cream, it doesn’t feel like a silicone product and surprisingly it’s not drying.

It makes my skin super smooth (I hope you can see it from the photos) . The best way to describe it is velvety, it makes your skin matt but not flat or dry, doesn’t grab to dry patches and it fills in pores and fine lines.

The best way to apply it is dabbing it on with your fingers.

It doesn’t have any scent and it’s oil free. I would recommend it for every skintype.

I hope you can see how AMAZING the result is, my skin looks like it doesn’t have any pores, the foundation glided on like a dream and it looks so smooth and matt, I can even skip powder all together in winter time (this is never happened before).


I was amazed by the lasting power: I’ve been using the L’Oréal Infallible 24H Matte foundation for years and it’s always been one of my favourites but eversince I started using this primer underneath it took my love to next level.

I used to blot my face three times a day and now with this combo I never blot my face and my foundation still looks great at the end of the day. It’s insane!


  • Effect: 10/10
  • Longevity: 10/10
  • Application: 9/10
  • Texture: 10/10
  • Packaging: 9/10


This primer changed my life, I never thought I could say something like this about a primer but it’s incredible. After using it my skin looks smooth, velvety and soft. Sometimes I only use concealer and powder skipping foundation all togheter. The lasting power is fantastic, my face make up stays in place all day long and I don’t have to worry about it.

Ciao Darlings,

Il post di oggi sarà la review del NYX Angel Veil Primer, ho sentito molte opinioni positive su questo primer per il viso e ho deciso di regalarlo a mia sorella per il suo compleanno pensando che su di me non avrebbe funzionato.

Ho comunque deciso di testarlo e me ne sono innamorata. Mi sono comunque accorta che molte persone non si rendono conto di quanto un buon primer possa fare la differenza e possa migliorare qualsiasi fondotinta.

Potete acquistarlo qui per 15,68€.

Il packaging è carino, mi piace che sia un tubetto da spremere perchè riesco a controllare quanto prodotto far uscite senza sprechi e visto che ne basta pochissimo la trovo una scelta vincente.

Non è proprio elegante ma funziona.

Quanto l’ho comprato ricordo di aver pensato fosse piccolo ma contiente i 30ml standard.

Questo primer ha l’aspetto di una crema, non ha quella consistenza siliconica e non è per nulla secco.

Rende la pelle super liscia ed omogenea (spero si percepisca dalle foto). Il modo migliore per descriverlo è vellutato, rende la pelle opaca ma non piatta, non segna le zone secche e riempe pori e linee di espressione.

Non ha odore e non contiene oli. Tutti i tipi di pelle possono utilizzarlo.

(Lo so la mia pelle non è il massimo, scusate la foto così zoomata)

Foto #1: Pelle normale

Foto #2: Pelle + Primer

Foto #3: Primer + Fondotinta

Spero si riesca ad apprezzare quanto il risultato sia ECCEZIONALE, sembra che non abbia più i pori, il fondotinta si applica in maniera incredibile e la pelle è liscia e opaca, posso pure non applicare la cipria in inverno (mai successo prima).


Sono rimasta sconvolta dalla durata. Uso il fondotinta L’Oréal Infallible 24H Mat da anni ed è da sempre uno dei miei preferiti ma da quando ho iniziato ad usarli insieme me ne sono innamorata a tutt’altro livello.

Normalmente devo usare le salviette assorbisebo almeno tre volte al giorno ma con questa combo non sento la necessità di farlo e a fine giornata il fondotinta ha ancora un bell’aspetto. E’ assurdo!


  • Effetto: 10/10
  • Longevità: 10/10
  • Applicazione: 9/10
  • Texture: 10/10
  • Packaging: 9/10


Questo primer mi ha cambiato la vita, non credevo che lo avrei mai detto di un primer ma è incredibile. Dopo averlo usato la mia pelle è morbida, liscia, vellutata e luminosa. A volte lo uso da solo con correttore e cipria senza fondotinta. La durata è fenomenale, la mia base resta in ordine tutto il giorno senza che io me ne preoccupi.

  1. Hi, thanks for the detail shots using this primer. I’m always looking for a good alternative to my Smashbox one. I’ll have to try this!! Thanks!!

    1. I love the smashbox ones, I’ve used them in the past! You’ll LOVE this one then 😉

  2. Wow what a difference a good primer makes! I love anything that will make my skin feel “velvety” instead of dry (especially during the winter)!

    1. This will glide on dryness like a DREAM

  3. I really didn’t get on with this primer for some reason! It smooths out my skin but then I feel like makeup looks heavy and textured when I wear it 🙁

    1. That’s so sad! Maybe you use too much product? I find that it used to happen to me too at the beginning because I was using way too much.. 😕

  4. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong! I’ll have to try it a different way!

    1. Let me know if it works, if not we just have to accept that some products work for some people and not for us, for example I really don’t like the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer were most people love it!

      1. Yeah it’s so weird how we all get on with different products! Thanks though, I will try it!

        1. You are welcome, let me know how it goes 😘
