    Would have liked to try it for longer but it smells horrible like rotten eggs..makes me wonder what's in it? So I only used it twice, it's smooth and drys well didn't leave an oily feeling.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

      This could be a good primer for normal or dry skin but not great for my oily skin. It makes my skin feel soft, look dewy, and blends my makeup nicely but after 2 hours my skin looks very oily, shiny, and the foundation kinda floats on top. Yuck.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

        I was really hoping it would correct the red blotches that I've developed as I get older, but it didn't. I think the green and lavender is just a way to make it pretty in the bottle so you'll buy it. It did go on smoothly and seemed to help my foundation application. I have naturally oily skin and this definitely didn't help that. Within a couple of hours my makeup had melted off anyway. Save your money.

          This actually STINGS my skin. Quite a surprise coming from Almay. In addition, the color correcting does absolutely nothing. Save your money. Do not buy this.

          As a primer this is a good product, not the best, but it gets the job done. Its a gel primer and I will say a little dab does it.It does spread well, but I will say agian a little dabs does you on a good note it does grab foundation really well and it actually helps blend everything good(concealer, foundation, blush) however I w I uld not use this on your eyes...in fact dont.

              Gave great complexion and radiance but has a horrible smell and made my skin very oily immediately. Felt very heavy on the skin. Preferred NYX Cosmetics primer instead.

              not bad

              By Cara the Coke

              from North Dakota

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

              I heard so many bad reviews! I like the product! It doesn't correct my redness, but it does create a nice, smooth surface. It is sheer because if you look closely, there is a clear gel in it. It does have a smell, but it's not too bad. I mean, it doesn't smell great, but I can ignore it.
              It keeps my makeup on all day. I have combination skin, so it does help hydrate my dry areas, and it stays (and my makeup) in my oily areas.
