      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

      I don't wear makeup that often, but when I do I use either Bare Minerals original loose powder (my fave) or a BB/CC cream. I have yet to find a BB/CC that is worth it. I had high hopes for this CC cream. It did amaze me... but in a BAD way. I was amazed that it could cause multiple breakouts (full-on whiteheads) in just a couple of hours. Wow. No other product has ever done that. The first time I thought it was a coincidence, so I gave it additional chances. Tried keeping the brush cleaner than usual. Nope. Broke out in a flash every time all the way through half of the tube. I can say with 100% certainty that it was this product causing breakouts. Into the trash ot went.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

      I put a little on the back of my fist and it goes from a blueish/white color to a foundation color. Use a buffing brush and build coverage as needed. I typically use it for day time use and when in a hurry. This is easy to apply and doesn't enhance my pores.

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

          I've repurchased this a few times, and I've really grown to dislike it. I only wear it when I'm gardening, going to the park, hiking, etc. because it offers more SPF, but it doesn't look very good on my face. By the end of the day I'm so anxious to get this off my skin because it feels SO gross.

                  I do really like this product, only problem i found is that I chose the wrong shade. I got light/medium. And due to it being winter I am not dark enough for that right now. Will definitely be using it in the summer. It has good coverage and its lightweight and natural looking and feeling. Great for everyday natural summer makeup!

                    The shade blended well with my skin and provided light-medium coverage for my redness and uneven skin tone. It was very creamy and easy to apply but the finish was very luminous. Once I topped it with a little rice powder the finish looked much more natural for me.
