Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

I have light to medium olive skin, which means my skin's undertone is quite yellow, leaning towards green. This makes finding matching foundations really difficult, and why I was so excited for this product. The majority of foundations are beige/orange or pink. This CC cream claims to adjust to your skin tone, but it just doesn't! I was so disappointed to find that this is just another beige CC cream that ends up looking bright orange on my yellow skin. If you have beige skin, this might work for you, but if you are very cool with pink or even blue undertones, or strong yellow/green undertones like me, this will not work. Because of that fact, I can't recommend this to anyone. The actual product is okay. It isn't a bad CC cream, but it isn't the best I have tried either. It goes on fairly smooth, and blends in well. It has pretty good coverage for a CC cream. It has quite a strong sun screen scent, but I personally don't mind that. It does tend to settle into any lines you may have, though, and exaggerate them. For that reason, along with the fact that it is bright orange on my skin, I can't wear this product. I had high hopes, but this did not work out at all!

    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

    It is so easy to apply! I just dot it over my face and blend it in with my fingers and I'm good to go! I use it almost everyday because I hate how foundation is so heavy and cakey (and takes a while to apply). This gives a nice light coverage, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

    I love it, just what I was looking for. Unfortunately it causes breakouts for my skin. I loved that it has spf 35 (I believe.) I have a few other products that break my skin out, so I just have rather sensitive skin. But if you don't and you are looking for a good lightweight and protecting product. This is for you.

      Nice product. A very natural look. I can't speak to the sun protection factor because I have been diligent about wearing a sun hat.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

        This product gives a very greasy looking finish which, having oily skin, I tend to stay away from. The coverage is very good considering it is only a CC Cream and not a foundation, and it gives medium coverage if many layers are applied. Although the color matches well, the product did leave my pores looking extremely large and shiny. I would recommend wearing this product to the beach, but certainly not for everyday use.

          This is great! I was looking for something lightweight to wear everyday. The color is great and it blends out very well. I prefer to apply with a sponge instead of a brush. I wore it for over 8 hours and it stays in place amazingly! The only spot on my face that started to look oily is my chin.
