        I wear this product as every day cover up. I don't like wearing thick makeup! I also have really sensitive skin, this was so easy to apply and take up with the coverage I'm looking for!

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

          I like this makeup. It gives me a very natural look. The only problem is that it doesn't cover all my problems, such as redness in the cheeks. It covers a little better than the regular Almay Smart Shade. I usually have to use an eraser product as well. However, I would still recommend it to people who don't have the same problems.

          great sun protection and covers well

          By Jen

          from Troutman NC

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

          This CC cream has great sun protection and it covers my redness well. I gave it 4 stars though because it doesn't set well and transfers easily. I recommend a primer and a setting powder. I'm definitely going to use up what I have left but I'm not sure I'll repurchase.

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

          When I first bought this product, I was so in love with it. It has great coverage, it's lightweight, it's natural- how could it be bad when it has all of these great qualities?
          But recently, within the past few months, I found myself breaking out more. At first, I was like, "Oh, it's almost that time of month, this is normal." But when my period was over, there were still zits popping up all over my face. That was when I was like, okay- what's the deal with this?
          So I tried a different CC Cream for a little while- it was still drugstore, but it didn't test on animals, it was thicker than this one, and it had light to medium coverage. After using it for about a week, I found most of my zits going away. And when I picked up the Almay CC Cream because I was running late and it was easier to apply, I, once again, began breaking out, even after just a day's use.
          So yes, it's okay- the coverage is great, it does what it's supposed to do, it's cheap, and all of that. But is it really worth the risk of breaking out all over your face that even when you wash your face for an hour, they just keep popping back up? No, I think not.
          (Shoutout to the Physician's Formula CC Cream for keeping my oil level to a minimum and getting rid of my sits. You the real MVP.)

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

            I had this product recommended to me by a friend and thought I would try it out. After my first use I wasn't happy at all but gave it a few tries to see if I could find a way to work with it. What bothers me the most about this product is how much it oxidizes. The color goes on perfectly but as it set it in it turns so orange on my face even though I bought a shade lighter than I would normally wear. The formula is also super oily right out of the tube and caused me to get painful breakouts which I'm normally not prone to get. Overall I hated this product and ended up throwing it away because there was no way I could make it work.

              Covered what I wanted to be covered without being too noticeable. Looks like a better version of my natural skin and it doesn't make your face all the same color with no depth.
