One of the worst I've tried

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

      This is the worst drugstore concealer I've ever tried. The Smart Shade thing seems gimmicky at best, it didn't really match my skintone at all. I have a medium skintone with warm undertones so I can't even imagine how much bad luck you'll have with this is your really fair or darker toned. Formula turned really watery and useless after a few uses. Waste of money!

        Use everyday as an under eye concealer. Formula is light and doesn't cause break outs (I have very sensitive skin). I use in combination with a pressed powder to cover dark circles and freckles. Wonderful and reliable product.

          This concealer works great but needs a moisturizer underneath or it can look chalky if too much applied. It matches my skin color perfectly just as advertised.

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

              I used the product to cover under eye dark circles. The first few uses were wonderful, it blended well and was a perfect match for my skin tone. But after about 5 uses it became really runny and dark brown. It was really gross and did not work any more. I tried shaking it vigorously but that was no use.
              DO NOT BUY!!!!

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

              I notice that when I put this on right over my eye cream it can't quite get to the right color match... I think it uses the heat of the skin to work and with a barrier, is not as accurate. Besides that, I have only used this under my eyes and it is very good, but like others, tends to settle in fine lines throughout the day even when I make a point of not putting on too much or taking it out too far. I don't balme the product... I seen much worse. Overall, this is a great product if your circles are not very dark.

                Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

                I was really impressed with how this product blended, but it went down hill fast. My disclaimer: I have oily skin, so I use a primer and a setting powder. Within one hour, this product had completely melted off the spots where I placed it. Particularly bad, was underneath my eyes. I had some waterproof mascara on, and after one hour, I had raccoon eyes where it ran throughout the concealer spot. Waterproof mascara! I wiped it off with my fingers and went about my day. A few hours later, I look in the mirror to the exact same situation. I had to keep wiping the mascara off that had dripped down underneath my eyes. By the end of the day, it looked like I had never even put mascara on my bottom lashes. It's almost like the product sucked the mascara off my lashes! I've never seen anything like it.
