    blurs & glows !

    By makeup newbie

    from Palmdale

    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

    Love this primer ! Definitely blurs out a lot of my flaws & I have scarred and blemished skin. Also gives skin a nice beautiful glow. Only downside is it doesn't blend very smoothly so when I where it alone at times I have a white looking film. And color correcting isn't as effective as I thought but still gives minimal redness correction. I use it daily & love it anyway !

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

      I really like this prodcut. Primer has become a regular in my makeup routine. And when looking for a good one, I tried various brands from drug-store to high-end. I found this one from Almay to be exactly what I wanted.

      It goes on easily and provides a light, soft glowing coverage. I use it on it's own, if I'm heading to the beach (over sunscreen of course!) to give me a great natural looking glow. But, it's super effective under makeup. It blends easily and helps my makeup to last all day.

      I have sensitive skin, and this product works really well, not causing any break outs.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

        I use this every day, either as a great CC cream, or layer it under my foundation. It evens out my ruddy skin tone, making makeup look flawless. The price is very reasonable, especially since I was expecting to pay much more when I started looking.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

        I actually am an Ulta employee. I'm usually big into using higher end products and one day I just came across this and just thought I would try it randomly, and so glad I did! It works great with my oily/sensitive skin. Didn't break me out at all! Keeps my makeup on and my skin looks flawless. The only thing I don't like about it is the smell, kinda smells like glue or something. But I still give it 5 stars!

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

          It's a little pink for my skin color but it's not a problem after I put on my foundation (which does match my skin tone). I love the coverage and how it really primes (firms) my face before I put on foundation.

                Makes my makeup last all day on my combo/oily skin. Didn't cause breakouts on my sensitive skin. I would use this lightly since too much could feel heavy. Have used higher end primers and this one was the only one that made my face look flawless!

                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

                  I wanted to like this, but it doesn't really do much for my skin. It doesn't seem more luminous after application. As a primer it doesn't help my makeup stay on any better. Actually it reacted badly with my liquid foundation and made it get patchy and clumpy. I'll keep it around and try it with another foundation maybe, but so far it's really not worth it.
