      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.

                Comments about Almay Smart Shade Loose Finishing Powder:

                Love this product. It goes on easy. I always use loose powder and I have finally found one that does not break me out....and that is the right price.....and that lasts more than a month. There are only 3 colors though to choose from. I am using #2 color (medium) and it almost is to dark. Next time I will try the lightest #1 shade to see if that works better....otherwise I will have to buy both and blend.

                This powder provided minimal coverage and was returned the next day.
