Makeup with Benefits: Almay Age Essentials Collection

4 Aug

Almary Age Essentials

When it comes to makeup with benefits like collagen, hyaluronic acid, and peptides, count me in.

Almay has recently launched their Age Essentials collection with these skin-loving ingredients and SPF, including:

  • Almay Age Essentials Makeup
  • Almay Age Essentials Concealer
  • Almay Age Essentials Lip Treatment

Almay Age Essentials Makeup

I’m a hard-core powder foundation fan, but I try to be open to alternatives :). Almay’s foundation with built-in moisturizer is lightweight and blends well (the Light Neutral shade was a good match for my pale skin tone).

Even though the SPF 15 foundation has a matte finish, it still made my skin look moisturized all day. In fact, the foundation is designed to boost hydration immediately and over time.

Almay Age Essentials Concealer

Some multi-purpose concealers work well for one issue but are a total fail for another. For example, you may find that a concealer does a good job hiding dark circles, but it leaves buildup over the day in your lines and creases.

With its creamy texture, Almay Age Essentials Concealer with SPF 20 camouflages darkness and subtly brightens under the eyes (without creasing). The easy-to-use stick format with a slanted tip provides good coverage and comes in shades from light to medium deep.

Almay Age Essentials Lip Treatment

Even your lips can suffer from too much sun exposure. Almay’s lip treatment with SPF 30 is infused with anti-aging ingredients that hydrate, soothe, and protect lips from damage. Shea butter, coconut and argan oil, and Vitamin E condition lips.

For easy application, Almay has designed an oversized bullet (more bang for your buck💰) to quickly cover the entire lip area. The pink core in the center of the balm is where all the action is: the anti-aging ingredients that keep your lips looking young.

Like all Almay products, this line is dermatologist-tested and fragrance-free. Age Essentials products run under $20 and are available at drugstores like London Drugs.

    I love that lip balm. I use it every day. It works great as a base under other lip products.
