Good Housekeeping: Best Anti-Aging Makeup For 2012
They do it every year.
Here are the BEST of the BEST in Anti-Aging Makeup by Good Housekeeping Magazine:
"We tested 97 products on 661 volunteers and tallied responses on 2,004 questionnaires to find 22 winners that really can make you look younger!"
Rosemary Ellis, editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping said in a press release: "From laptops to lipsticks, our readers look to us for recommendations on products that perform as promised and are worth the money.
"Our Anti-Aging Awards are unique because the winners are chosen not only because they smell nice or come in pretty shades: they are backed by scientific testing and have literally been proven to work."
