      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

      As a color corrector, this did absolutely nothing. As a primer it was sub-par at best. The smell while applying was rancid - I'm not one to complain about this because I appreciate products not always having artificial fragrance added, but this smelled something like garbage juice. Maybe I got a bad/expired product, but would not recommend...

        This product does help balance skin, but doesn't conceal the redness I experience due to rosacea.

        I wish I would have read the reviews before I bought this product. This is the worst smelling item I've ever bought in my entire life! I will be returning it promptly and willing to spend more money on a product that doesn't smell like cat pee.

            This product is horrible. First use, I completely broke out. It smells like cat pee... its tested on animals... and it doesn't help my makeup. My foundation slid right off my face! I NEVER have this problem. DO NOT BUY THIS. It's disgusting.

              Perfect for any skin tone. Helps with making even skin tone before putting on cover up.

                  Smells like cat pee. Even my boyfriend noticed the smell three hours after I put it on. Will not be buying again.
