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.

      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.

          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.
