Unlike the FaceApp challenge I tried, I don't see as many wrinkles as I "age" with this new Snapchat filter -- but I did get white hair, a wider face and saggy skin (ugh!). Somewhere in the middle of the aging timeline seems to be the best look for me.

Remember that viral face-aging app? Now Snapchat can do the same thing .
Some of the biggest viral Internet sensations this year have been apps like Gradient and Face App that use an image of someone's face to either dramatically age them or show how closely they resemble someone else's face. Indeed, social media feeds got taken over almost overnight by the success of both apps, particularly Face App -- with celebrities ranging from the Jonas Brothers to Gordon Ramsay getting in on the act and showing their followers what they’d look like as senior citizens. Snapchat has enjoyed a measure of that same kind of success, with its baby filter earlier this year revealing what you’d look like as an adorable little tyke.
