Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

I read the really bad reviews on this product after buying it and feel sort of surprised. I mean, I understand what everyone is saying about the bad smell, but it's more like a strange glue smell or something, I don't know. Either way, I like this stuff enough, I feel like it really works for its intended use. I'm a redhead with the fairest skin possible, which means that all of my pink undertones are extremely prominent, especially in my cheeks, and I HATE it. This stuff does a pretty good job of evening out the pink in my skin. I just put some of this on, wait for it to dry, then apply some BB cream over it. I even noticed that my skin looked very even-toned and not all red in the gross fluorescent lights at my school, which seem to always make me look redder. Either way, I'd say that I would buy this again, it's not too bad of a product.

          I have only tried a very few primers and this one is my favorite. This primer is very light and not a lot of product is required for full application. This product goes on clear, so no need to worry about the colors in the bottle.

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

              I could not get passed the smell to even know if this works or not. It smells so god awful that holding my breath didn't even work and I had to wash my face immediately after applying it. I am actually appalled that Almay would even release something that smells like that to the general public. Returned it immediately.

              Ineffective and smells unpleasant

              • Bad odor

              Best Uses

                Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

                My daily makeup routine for skin consists of primer, BB cream, and then concealer. The first time I tried this primer, I immediately noticed it had an unpleasant odor. It is reminiscent of either rotten eggs or what I would describe as the essence of a fart. I can't put my finger on it, but it is quite off-putting. When you pump the product, the green, lavender and clear gel mix together, but not completely into one color. (Don't worry, there is no strange color at all when you put it on your face.) You also need to work fast because the product dries quickly. As a primer, I don't think it works well because it feels sticky, even after most of it has absorbed into the skin. Moreover, it's equally ineffective for illuminating (lavender)/color correcting (green). I went one day without the primer and just put BB cream on directly. Since it looked exactly the same as when I use the primer + BB cream, I concluded that only my BB cream was working to reduce my red spots.

                  I was hoping it would cover the light red veins on my face. It does a pretty good job but not as much coverage as I had hoped.

                  The product semi works but for me to notice a difference I have to put double the recommended amount on. There is a really weird smell that comes with it and I generally hold my breath when I'm putting it on. This product isnt terrible and it does even my skin tone, I just feel there are better products out there that work better and don't have a weird odor
