            Pretty Good

            By Morgan

            from Wisconsin

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade Loose Finishing Powder:

            Picked up this powder as a cheaper alternative to my usual (very expensive) powder. I have oily/combination skin and although this powder didn't accentuate dry patches, I did end up with quite a shine in my t-zone after a few hours of wear. Nothing a little blotting paper won't fix, but just something to keep in mind if you have oily skin. This was my biggest issue with this product, as my usual powder soaked up oil better. I purchased the "light" powder, and I was pleased with how it matched my skin, but I did notice that it looked a little warm/orange. This didn't bother me, as I have very cool-toned skin and most products end up being just slightly too warm-toned for me. But, it's summer so the extra color boost was more welcome than not. The finish this powder provides is okay, but nothing special. It doesn't give much extra coverage or pigmentation, and won't do much of anything to perfect fine lines or skin texture. Basically it's not going to change the way your foundation looks after its applied, what you already got on is what you end up with. Overall, this product is good for the price and would probably buy it again in the future.

              Love this loose powder! Such a great deal...it lasts all day and you only need a little dusting. It keeps my oily skin looking not oily, but also isn't super heavy/chalky looking, and doesn't aggravate or clog pores.
