              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

              To be honest, I don't even know if this product is doing anything and it has a pretty strong makeup smell. The texture is nice, it's not that silicone feeling that a lot of primers have. But I think that's why it makes me feel like it's not doing much. I do think it helps a little with undermining my redness.

                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

                  As a color corrector, this did absolutely nothing. As a primer it was sub-par at best. The smell while applying was rancid - I'm not one to complain about this because I appreciate products not always having artificial fragrance added, but this smelled something like garbage juice. Maybe I got a bad/expired product, but would not recommend...

                    This product does help balance skin, but doesn't conceal the redness I experience due to rosacea.

                    I wish I would have read the reviews before I bought this product. This is the worst smelling item I've ever bought in my entire life! I will be returning it promptly and willing to spend more money on a product that doesn't smell like cat pee.

                        This product is horrible. First use, I completely broke out. It smells like cat pee... its tested on animals... and it doesn't help my makeup. My foundation slid right off my face! I NEVER have this problem. DO NOT BUY THIS. It's disgusting.
