About Me Budget Buyer

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Covers Well

Cons

  • Can Be Chalky
  • Unnatural Color

Best Uses

  • Under Eyes

Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

I don't wear a foundation, so I was looking for a dark circle concealer without the need for layering with additional color corrector, primer etc. This did okay at covering the dark areas, but looked grayish and settled into my tiny lines somewhat.

    Dark runny liquid

    By jsrocky55

    from detriot

    Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

    I use this every day to cover my dark circles... it works well but when i first squeeze it out, a dark runny liquid comes out. You just have to squeeze harder then the dark brown/white combination comes out. Just blend it on the back of your hand before you apply it and it works fine.

    One of the worst I've tried

    Pros

      Cons

      • Bad Color
      • Fades Throughout Day
      • Watery

      Best Uses

        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!

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

          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.

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade Concealer:

            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.
