              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

              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.)
