I was sent some products from Amazing Cosmetics to try out and review for you guys! I've been using these for about a week so I have a pretty good feel for them and how they work for me. Let's get into it!
First we have their Anti Aging Face Primer. This comes in 2 sizes - 15mL and 30mL. You only need a small amount for your whole face - a little goes a long way!
It is a clear gel that sort of has that silicone feel to it when you first put it on, but it absorbs into the skin so quickly that it feels like nothing! It is oil free and leaves the skin feeling hydrated, not greasy. I have tried a lot of primers that I just can't use because they make my already oily skin feel even oilier. I've got to say, this does a REALLY good job of keeping oil at bay, and it makes my makeup look fresh all day long!
Then we have the Amazing Concealer (I got the shade Ivory)
This also comes in 2 sizes, 15 mL and 6 mL. This is a squeeze tube package, which makes it very sanitary as you can just squeeze some onto your hand and aren't dipping and re-dipping into the package. It is a thinner formula as far as concealers go, but the coverage is amazing!
Using it with a Beauty Blender gives a flawless look. I haven't had any issues with it creasing under my eyes, which is always my number one issue with thinner formula concealers like this. So far, so good! I've just been setting it with a loose powder and I'm good to go!
Last but not least we have the Amazing Concealer Illuminate. Again, this is the shade Ivory.
This packaging is a plastic tube with a wand/doe foot applicator:
It goes on smoothly and is a thin formula like the tube concealer. This one has "light reflecting pigments" in it that at first made it look a bit sparkly to me, but the more I wear it, the more I like it. It's definitely a great under-eye concealer.
Here it is blended out on my wrist (you can see my vein at the bottom of the pic) Ignore the fact that I didn't wait till it was dry to snap the photo! It is definitely a multi-tasker because it has great coverage AND brightens!
All in all, I really like all 3 of these products. I had never tried anything from the brand before so I was super excited when they reached out to me. I'm always psyched about trying things from brands I've never tried before! Definitely check them out, their stuff is great!
