    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.

            Foundations and powders usually break me out or feel too heavy. This does a great job of blending in and making my face have a soft glow without feeling heavy or being messy.
