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 decided 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 16$
The packaging is pretty, I like the squeezy tube as it disperses 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.
EFFECT & TEXTURE
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 by dabbing it on with your fingers.
It doesn’t have any scent and it’s oil free. I would recommend it for every skin type.

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 has 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 ever since 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!

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 altogether. The lasting power is fantastic, my face make up stays in place all day long and I don’t have to worry about it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
