          Comments about Almay Smart Shade Loose Finishing Powder:

          HORRIBLY messy. Got all over my clothes and countertop. I am very fair skinned and got the light shade, and it went on my skin a little darker than I would've liked. I ended up returning it after only a couple uses and I won't re-purchase.

            It wasn't as good as Baste Minerals. I was hoping to Dave some money, but it's not the same at all.

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Loose Finishing Powder:

              PLEASE make lighter true translucent for the very fair - L'Oreal discontinued their loose powder line, mineral powders do not work for me, and I cannot find a genuine translucent in a popular priced product (and I refuse to pay glamour prices like $45-50 for talc). This product is a fairly good substitute.

              In summer or hot climates I use a tinted BB cream and powder it down to look natural, not greasy.

                  Since I purchased my shade a little too dark I blend it with a lighter shade and it works well.
