      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

      I read about this primer and after I tried it I bought three more bottles, just in case it is discontinued. I had a chemical peel a couple of months ago and my skin looks good, without dark spots, freckles, blackheads, or visible pores. This Almay primer over a stronger sunscreen is all I need for everyday, if I add just a dab of concealer under my eyes. It leaves my skin looking smooth, evenly colored, and it is very comfortable. I think when the weather is colder I may need a richer moisturizer underneath, but right now this CC primer over a lightweight sunblock is perfect. It does make me glow without shimmer!

          This primer is amazing! It is lightweight, glides on nicely, and stays on all day long, with no oily residue or finish. It keeps my skin looking smooth, matte, and clear. For the last 2 weeks I have been using this alongside Almay's powder, my skin looks even, acne-free, and glowing. Definitely recommended!

            Super smooth and easy to apply & blend! Does not bother my sensitive skin. I follow with a mineral foundation on a moist sponge, which evens out my ski tone and gives a light, natural look that lasts all day!

                this primer makes even my matte foundation VERY oily on my skin. it also makes my fair skin appear to be pink and flushed. I would not recommend to anyone as this product will not work in any way shape or form for me.

                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer:

                  I used this primer after applying my skin care in the morning. I tired using my fingers, beauty blender, and a dense fluffy foundation brush. All times it applied just fine and looked nice on the skin. It felt kinda oily on the skin, but I am combo dry and oily so I didn't mind too much. I applied my Urban Decay Naked Foundation on top of it and it just disappeared. When I used a brush to apply the foundation it went on patchy and the primer slid all over the place. Using the beauty blender I was a little more successful but the brightness gets diminished a lot even under a light/medium coverage foundation. It says it's a primer so I did it under my foundation but I suppose you could stipple it over foundation. I only used this product 3 days because it made my makeup separate on my face and it made me break out in little white bumps.

                  Pretty color and concept but unfortunately very poor formulation.
