    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

    I mix this with my Millani conceal foundation and it looks great! Their foundation is kind of dark for me, but with this mixed in it goes from a very Matte finish to a slightly "dewy" finish. I use this daily for a soft glow.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

      I used to have breakouts all the time when I used Bare Minerals. Once I started using this product along with other Almay products my break out stoped. Love this stuff, doesn't clog pores and provides protection from the sun.

          incredibly Greasy

          By Angela

          from Charleston, SC

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

          This primer feels thick and greasy and it never absorbs into the skin. It does NOT prolong the west of makeup at all and it made me look even more oily. It also made my skin break out like crazy. Don't waste your money on this.

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

              This product feels and looks disgustingly greasy and just sits on top of the skin. It also does not make makeup last any longer and it caused my skin (that isn't even that sensitive) to break out. There really isn't anything good about this product.

                  I use this product as a base on my face before applying foundation. I have oily skin and it's worked really well with my skin. Another plus is it has SPF.

                        This luminous primer is perfect for the warmer months coming up. It makes my skin dewy but not oily looking. The only negative I would say is that it is slightly thick/lotion like. As opposed to thin and slippery. But I still love it and I'd buy it again!
