      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Skin Tone Matching Makeup:

      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.

          Upset with Almay as many women are for changing product

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Skin Tone Matching Makeup:

              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.

                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade Skin Tone Matching Makeup:

                  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.

                    Unhapppy with New Improved Formula

                    Comments about Almay Smart Shade Skin Tone Matching Makeup:

                    I have purchased this product for years and loved it. However, the "new/improved" formula looks like mime makeup. I thought maybe I got a bad batch and sent a note to Almay. In response, they sent coupons for more Revlon products. I was hoping for an explanation or product equivalent. Too bad, it was a great product and I am puzzled as to what they were trying to achieve and why they thought they improved it. Sometimes ya gotta leave well enough alone.

                      Loved the original formula and used it for many years. Almay, unfortunately, has recently released a "new and improved" version. Within two days, it broke my skin out horribily. I hope they go back to the original formula, this new one does not blend as easily, feels gritty, and causes redness with breakouts.
