Amazing Cosmetics Mineral Velvet Foundation, Amazing Concealer and Anti Aging Primer

The world's best concealer is here!! Its from Amazing Cosmetics. I am sure you have come across the Amazing Concealer at some point but recently, I really got searching for a nice concealer and Amazing Cosmetics had it! Just like everyone else, I would be willing to trade anything for a good concealer. So, today, I will share with you three products from Amazing Cosmetics, including their Mineral Velvet Foundation, Amazing Concealer and their Anti Aging Primer. The shades I decided to go with is Light Golden, which is a shade lighter for me. I think I should have gone with Medium Golden but nonetheless I like the quality of these products and I am here to share this with you guys!





ANTI AGING FACE PRIMER
The primer shown below is a travel size. The full size is 30ml and retails for $34. It promises to hydrate skin for up to 24 hours, evens out skin's texture, makes it radiant, is light weight, free from harmful stuff and allows makeup to stay put all day long.
I have been using this a lot recently and I feel this primer is not as silicon-ish and slippery on skin as the other primers I have used before. Initially, that led me to use more of the product, as I could not really feel it on skin. However, with continued usage, I  realized how much I should use for my face.
It helps in keeping the makeup in place and also protects skin from loosing moisture. I can't say about the 24 hours claim but I did not find my foundation to be fading while I had this on for about 8 hours.

AMAZING CONCEALER
This is the creamiest, most opaque concealer I have come across in a long time. The formula is quite sticky and thick. A tiny dot goes a long long way. Since its sticky, it adheres well on foundation and does not get washed off when I sweep finishing powder on it. The shade Light Golden, is one shade lighter for me but it blends out nicely without looking too light. It has peachy tones which helps in correcting the marks. It works great on blemishes, acne marks and other imperfections but not so great on dark circles.
With my dark circles, although it gave me the coverage I wanted but it 'caked' over time and settled in fine lines around my eye. I tried using it with a wet sponge, warming it up between my fingers and extra moisturized my under eye area, but I really could not get away with the splotchy look. It looked like dryness and just not a good sight.
Other than that, it covered my acne marks and redness around the nose really well. It also blends well with the foundation and lasts as much as the foundation. I feel it works best with over a liquid foundation and that's how I like to use it. I lightly tap it on the trouble area and blend it out with my fingers and then I set it with a finishing powder or the Amazing Velvet Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation.
In the pics below, you can see how tiny this tube it. Its a travel size (6ml) for $28 and a full size (15ml) retails for $42. Since I need the tiniest amount for my entire face, I feel even this travel size will last me very long. This concealer comes in 20 shades, so you can always find one for yourself.

I like that it was sealed

AMAZING COSMETICS VELVET MINERAL FOUNDATION 

Amazing cosmetics have their mineral founadtion in liquid, loose and pressed form. Since, I have dry skin, I stay away from pressed powder foundations since they accentuate dryness on my face. With this however, I did not feel like it settled around my nose nor did it make my skin feel dry. I actually really like this foundation.
Although, the shade Light Golden, is slightly lighter for me, but the golden undertones work for my complexion. I also figured that I only needed to apply this with a powder brush. The coverage it gave was sheer but buildable. As I apply more layers of foundation, it gives a medium coverage and when I applied with a sponge, it gave me full coverage. That was when I could really feel that the shade is lighter for my complexion, so I always apply this with a powder brush for a sheer, more natural finish. The texture is quite soft and smooth and gives more like a matte finish.
It works well as a finishing powder and can also be used to set my liquid foundation. It lasts a fairly good time. With the Amazing Anti Aging primer, it lasted me around 7 hours without touch ups. I would really like to see how this holds up in summer time, as it looks great on me during the winter days.

This foundation comes in 10 shades and retails for $36. Find out more here

SWATCHES

These swatches were taken indoors using natural light. Sorry about those tiny hair peeking through as I applied these to bare skin without even a moisturizer!




Overall, I feel these products are of good quality and can be a good option for anyone looking for mineral cosmetics. The Amazing Concealer is a good concealer for acne, blemishes and redness but not for my dark circles. Its very opaque and I think it can even cover a tattoo!
The Anti Aging Primer, is a good option among the primers out there as it sinks in skin quickly, does not feel slippery and also makes foundation last longer. My favorite has to be the Velvet Mineral Foundation as it did not dry my skin, gave a natural finish and lasted a good deal. The coverage is buildable and it gives a matte finish.
