        I wouldn't say this is a bad product, but it smells really bad. It made it so I didn't want to use it. I ended up returning it to the store.

        AWFUL DO NOT BUY!

        By Sarah

        from riverside

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

        It was one of my least favorite primers, I myself tend to have oily skin and a few red marks here and there and it didn't change the look of anything and left my face dewy and smelling awful.

            This product is great for teenagers to control oil before applying make-up. I purchase for my daughter under her Bare Minerals powder it helped with her natural tone due to her oily skin

            Decent primer, could be cheaper

            By Kenzie

            from Location not applicable

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

            A lot of people say this smells terrible, and I have yet to smell anything of the sort. I realize that it sits on your face but if it's not directly under your nose it shouldn't be a big deal. It helps my foundation smooth on but has not done an exceptional job in blurring redness and blemishes.

              smells disgusting

              By Lindsey

              from Florida

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

              The phrase "you get what you pay for" applies to this product. I was using the Stila One Step product and wanted to try and find something a little less pricey. Bought this and I almost gagged when I first put it on because the smell is rancid. And it doesn't really do anything. Will be switching back to Stila, a quality product.

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

              It helped with redness and color spots , it reminded me of a dupe for stilla primer but it smells really bad. If you can get passed the smell, then its worth it but I don't think I would purchase it again.

                This primer is awful. It smells like cat pee, and my foundation stays on better without it.

                gets the job done!

                Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

                This primer works great without paying a fortune for other primers such as Smashbox. I like how this primer is mixed with the lavender. The green does help reduce redness. It doesn't completely get rid of redness, however it doesn't promise to do that...that's what foundation & powder is for.
