Comments about Almay Smart Shade Skin Tone Matching Makeup:

My dermatologist recommended Almay years ago, and I have used it ever since. Lately, it is becoming more expensive to use. I do like it has SPF coverage, and it blends skin tone well. However, I will not buy it at Ulta again. When I got home and opened the tube, someone else had already used it. There were three tubes in the store, and the other two had been opened an were stained with makeup. I don't know why Ulta doesn't sell these products in tamper proof packaging like many other stores do. Ulta also does not carry the full line of Almay, and is costlier than stores. I retured the tube for a refund.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Skin Tone Matching Makeup:

      I really like this product. I have very fair skin, so it's difficult to find a product that doesn't turn orange on me. This goes on white and turns to your shade of skin. Love it so far.

          I initially liked the way it went on but after only a few weeks the product separated and all that was coming out was oil. Being in a tube there was no way to "mix" it (I tried) so had to return it.

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Skin Tone Matching Makeup:

              I love this foundation! I am not a girl that does the full glam look ever, so I love a super natural makeup that is light on the skin and comfortable. This is my GO TO foundation for everything! I have used all the foundations under the sun from cheap drug store to pricey high-end and this is the only one I love and go back to. For a while I used IT cosmetics CC+ but this one has it beat by miles. Love this and have recommended it to many friends. I have dryer skin and find that this does well with my skin and people always comment on how beautiful my skin looks! Seriously this is a must have in your makeup collection.

                  I have been using the Smart Shade Light/Medium 200 Mousse foundation since they came out with it years ago. I Introduced it to many women who loved it. It was reasonably priced $11 to $14 depending on the store and many times could get buy one & get one half off.. Blended well to match your skin tone and stayed on all day for career women. Especially in Florida, it never ran or streaked when sweating in a humid climate. It was light and went on smoothly & had great flawless coverage. It was the best foundation flawless makeup I had ever found. Many women are furious that we cannot find it anywhere in the stores anymore. Almay needs to bring back that Mousse product and rethink about loosing many loyal customers. Ready to go on a Cruise with my company & want my make-up back.

                      I have used this product for years and absolutely loved it. They decided to do "new and improved" and it is awful. I will no longer purchase this product. I feel the same way as many individuals feel who have used this product and loved it and now feel that it is terrible. Yikes, I truly can't believe how they went so terribly wrong on this new and improved version. Actually, I can't say enough how horrible the product is now with their so called "new and improved" version.
