Rated 3.86 out of 5 stars
I work 14 hour overnight shifts and this is ESSENTIAL on those nights! My makeup looks flawless until I wash it off... literally, like I just applied it! The name really does say it all... i have a very uneven skin tone & this blurs all of my little flaws perfectly!
I just got this in the mail today and it's an opaque white! This needs to be listed somewhere in the description so this brown girls will be aware when considering purchase. Also, it doesn't apply well at all, it flakes of while applying it you the skin and I was left with a whitish cast on my skin, no bueno.

I just bought this recently and I've been pretty impressed with NYX products recently so I figured I'd give it a try. It pills on the skin HORRIBLY so like...prepare for that. But the finish is so good that it helps to deal with the inconvenience. I love the Caliray blurring primer but it's so expensive to keep repurchasing, so this is a good dupe.

made my skin so smooth and my pores disappeared under my makeup! would not recommend for deeper skin tone since it leaves a bit of a lighter tint (hence 'angel veil') on your skin

Helps set and maintain makeup look allday

I have combination skin with oiliness on my t zone so I use this primer on my nose and then the plump right back primer on the rest of my face. This primer keeps my nose from getting oily throughout the day! I don't like using it all over my face though, because it tends to bring out dry spots on dryer parts of my face

I absolutely hated this product it was recommended to me from an associate. It goes on very thick leaves your whole face powdery. Then peels off until like a little tiny lint balls all over your face. Would not recommend returning this product. Absolutely love NYX.

Such a great primer for oily skin. It'll be hours before I start to blot my face. And even then, the blotting is minimal. I was initially hesitant when I read reviews about how it applies weirdly on your skin and has a very dry consistency. I see what they mean, but honestly, if you have oily skin it shouldn't be a problem. As long as you moisturize beforehand, you should be okay. Hands down the best primer for oily skin and a great dupe for the Hourglass Veil primer.

I like the primer but it leans oily for my skin which makes it difficult minimize my pores.
Crystal from PA
I decided to branch out into other primers to determine of anything works better for me so I thought I'd try the mini version of the Angel Veil based on reviews of the fullest sized product. I'm glad I went this route as this primer does not work well for me. I'll say I liked the feel of it but that's about it, and I do love this came as a mini.
Upon application, this product just sat on my skin and left a white cast. If I tried to rub it in, the product pilled. I thought it was my moisturizer so I tried it without and I had the same problem. I decided to bite the bullet and try it anyway. It left my foundation patchy and it was flaking off in spots by the end of an 8 hour day. It also accentuated my pores. I'm happy this product works for others but this was probably the worst primer I've tried.

Love this primer! it's so soft, silky, and blurring. It's a great dupe for the Hourglass primer and keeps makeup put. Only con is that after a while it becomes a thick consistency in the package, not soft and smooth like when you first purchase it. I've bought two already and for some reason it eventually becomes like a thick paste.
Nan from Red Bluff CA
Love this product, I use it as a base for my foundation or alone when I don't wear make up but want to look half way pulled together.
Bre from Virginia
I have oily skin and need a good primer to keep the shine down. I've purchased other good products such as the Becca primer. However, it was discontinued last year. This is the best alternative yet! Yay! And I have tried many others that didn't work for me.

The first day I used this i thought, wow, this made my face so smooth and almost filtered. I really thought it was better than hourglass primer, until the next day. OMG! the acne this gave me! Huge zits on my jawline and cheeks and little pimples on my chin. Its been a week and I'm still trying to get my face clear. Do yourself a favor and get the high end primer that won't ruin your complexion.
Pocky from Memphis
This is the dupe for the Hourglass Primer and keeps me matte for hours. Not a fan of the white cast it leaves but it does do wonders for oil control for a budget price
Mom Hero from Rocklin, California
Not as cheap as it should be for the quality. It was chalky, flaky and didn't sit on my skin like a primer should. I would not by it again.
Mel from NY
This is a dupe for the hourglass veil primer. I have both and I actually prefer the Angel veil. Having dry skin, most pore filling primers make my makeup slide right off ( not this one). I just tap in a little where I want to reduce pores and smooth skin. It's beautiful ( even on its own). I often use it first, in conjunction with other primers ( glowy, gripping, ect…) I've never had an issue. If it's pulling you are using too much. 5 stars all day!
Tee from Tx
As I patted the primer into my skin, it's started crumbling like dirt.. it felt smooth for about 6 seconds before it started doing that
BonieRoanie from MI
Best primer I've ever tried. MUCH better than the shine killer for oily skin.

Wouldn't recommend. Too heavy feeling
Des from California
Made my skin soooo flaky and had my foundation look patchy. Never again.
Nina from NC
To be honest, I wish all primers also comes in a mini. For me at least, takes a long time to finish a primer & I like trying new makeup. This is actually new to me, the angel veil always was pricey even for drugstore. I was expecting alot. This is OG to alot of people. I can honestly say it works well underneath alot of foundations. But this wasn't hydrating or lush like the description or in the name. This was more mattifying than I thought. Just average.
Roo from California
It's just okay, it makes my skin feel soft and that's about it. It kind of just leaves a film and sits on top of the skin.
Kewpieghost from Orlando
This one is a favorite of mine and has been for years, long before I started getting into more high end makeup. It still rocks.
Shelly from Loganville, GA
This product goes on smooth and creamy with a satin finish. I love this product!
Lacremala from Houston
This primer had really good reviews, but I only used it once. It contains silicone. This is not good to put on your skin nor to rinse down the drain. There are plenty of other primers out there that don't contain silicone. I actually returned it, because when I purchased it I didn't read the ingredients. My mistake.
Kimmy from Manila, Arkansas
It made my foundation look worse.
