          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

          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.

                Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

                I have been using this for about 2 months and I am in love! I have tried other primers which I usually didn't like ( except upscale ones, usually drugstore). I do have yellow undertones and break out easily with cosmetics or cleansers, but this didn't change either one. My complexion looks so even and flawless with this under my foundation and when I don't wear it my makeup trends to look more dry and cakey. I don't have anything bad to say, makes my skin look luminous with or without foundation and didn't cause any breakouts.

                  I use the cc primer before i put on my cc cream. i love that it spreads really smooth and you dont need a lot for each time you apply it. it also makes your cc cream spread further and more efficiently so you save on your cc cream. the only problems ive had with the primer is that it makes your face look a tad greasy at first but that clears up really fast and your skin looks luminous! it also causes breakouts if you dont wash your face at the end of the night.

                    I bought this product because i was in need of a CC cream and wanted to try something new. I usually used a matte primer instead of this but this product has given me the radiance i was always missing and it helps me stay moisturized all day!
