Brand Overview

Anti-Aging Face Primer is a clear silicone-based gel with a smooth, silky texture. The anti-aging claim is a stretch because this contains just a dusting of an antioxidant plant extract and vitamin E. However, like most silicone-rich primers, this helps mask signs of aging by filling in superficial lines and wrinkles for a smoother looking complexion. The effect is temporary, but it helps.

This fragrance-free primer is best suited for normal to dry skin, and it wears especially well with liquid or cream-to-powder makeup. Those concerned with treating signs of aging should consider using one of the serums we recommend on our list of Best Sensitive Serums, as many of these do double-duty as a primer and treat your skin to a range of beneficial ingredients.

Pros:
  • Very silky texture glides over skin and leaves a smooth finish.
  • Helps temporarily fill in superficial lines for a younger look.
  • Works beautifully under liquid or cream-to-powder foundations.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • The formula doesn't contain an impressive mix or amount of anti-aging ingredients like the serums on our Best Sensitive Serums list do.

AmazingCosmetics At-A-Glance

AmazingCosmetics was founded in 1999 as a small online company that sold only one producta cream concealer. Co-founders Lisa Thurman and Sue Katz believe a great concealer is the ultimate must-have for in a person's makeup routine. AmazingConcealer caught fire, becoming a makeup artist favorite, and so the foundation for a beauty brand was formed.

Since the launch of AmazingCosmetics and the success of AmazingConcealer, the line has expanded its makeup line with products for the eyes, lips, and face, including the now-popular Velvet Mineral Liquid Foundation with their "AmazingConcealer Technology." Once sold only online, AmazingCosmetics is now available in Sephora and Ulta stores across the U.S.A.
