Hi everyone!

The Angel Veil primer is the second primer from NYX I’ve tried. I’ve been waiting for it to arrive, but I was disappointed.

I regret wasting $16 on this:

The tube is girly and attractive.

Formula: the primer is white and rather thick and feels heavy on my skin. The aroma is far from pleasant.

My skin without makeup:


Application: I applied it with a finger, like any primer. I use Beauty blenders for the foundation.

The primer feels like a mask and leaves a white tint on my skin.

Let’s summarize all pros and cons:

✔Blurs my pores

✔Makes my face white and even


✔ Prolongs the lasting power of my makeup

A photo after 10-12 hours with it:

Now to the cons:

✘Feels like a mask

✘Nasty aroma


✘Too thick, therefore causes pimples

✘Hard to spread

✘Extremely drying. It accentuates all flaky spots.

A photo:


To avoid this, I have to scrub my skin really hard before applying this primer.

✘It doesn’t make my wrinkles smooth. On the contrary, the primer settles into them and becomes really visible.


In general, it's a bad value for the money.
