      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

      I usually spend a lot of money on brand named CC and BB creams but I have to admit this is worth five times what the price is! I was amazed. The color is perfect (I use 02) and usually wear a medium in Bare Minerals or 001 or Fair2 in Dior.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

        Even though the label did not say "non-comedogenic," I decided to give it a try anyway, because Almay is known for being gentle. The product felt greasy, and never seemed to set on my skin (just stayed as a shiny layer). There was no way I could use this product without powder. After about a week and a half, my skin started to break out. I HATE wasting money, but I had to throw this almost brand-new product out.

        Wonderful product if it wouldn't separate.

          Evens out skin tone, looks natural, doesn't settle into small creases in skin. If your skin is not oily, you can wear it without powder for a natural look. Easy to apply.

            This is the only BB/CC cream I have found that provides perfect moisturizing and concealer without being overly heavy/cakey. I love it. Plus it has a high SPF.

                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

                  I bought two of these in one fell swoop, given a discount on two. Although I will likely use up my tubes because I hate wasting, I will not buy this brand again. The cream is very oily / shiny looking and feeling, and as you try to blend it into your skin it simply sits on the surface, rather than absorbing. As I try to rub it in, what I'm left with is streaks from my finger motions on my face. I have tried other BB creams that offer much more even coverage and less oil. Yuck. The search continues!

                    This producty is not for me, it's too much like foundation. I usually go with minimal product on my face but this is too much like a foundation. I will keep it as a backup for when I run out of my usual product but I will not be buying again. For someone who usually wears a lot of face make-up but wants something lighter this would likely work well.
