Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the NYX The Marshmellow Primer.
I have to say, I’ve got this primer entirely because of RachhLoves, she’s the one that recommended the Clarins SOS Primer and I’ve loved that one for over 3 years so of course, I had to try this one since she liked it.
I actually used to LOVE the NYX Angel Veil primer but they reformulated it and the new one isn’t as good but I still was excited to try this one.
I got the mini version to save some money in case I didn’t like it, this one is 8ml and it retails for 8$
You can buy the full size here for 17$ for 30ml.
It has a very pretty lilac packaging, the full size packaging has a pump while the one I have is a squeezy tube.
It has a delicious marshmellow scent which I absolutely love.
This primer feels like a normal cream with a bit of silicone slip and the pink tint makes the skin look more radiant.
It doesn’t feel greasy. Once you put it on it’s a little shiny but it dries into a matte finish.
It makes my skin quite smooth and it’s pore filling, I really like the effect on me.
The best way to apply it is by dabbing it on with your fingers.
Here’s with foundation on top otherwise you couldn’t see anything
It makes my foundation last for 5-6 hours before it starts to break and I need to repowder.
- Effect: 8/10
- Longevity: 8/10
- Application: 8/10
- Formula: 9/10
- Packaging: 9/10
I really like this primer, I’ve been using it a lot. It makes my skin super smooth and poreless. I like the packaging (both versions) and the scent is delicious, for the price, it’s a very good one. It lasts a long time too. I’d definitely get the full size.
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.
