        This is the best powder I've ever used! I've been using it for several years now. Very natural-looking and provides nice coverage to set makeup. Matches skin tone nicely. Almay has great products!

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

              I love Almay products and this is a great, natural-looking powder that is not too powdery at all. Being pressed makes it easier to not use too much. Great for sensitive skin too. The best powder I have ever used!

                      Daughter goes thru a ton of this along with Rimmel, she uses the lightest shade. Not sure if its doing any favors for her acne but she likes it and the price isn't bad, esp. w/Ulta coupons.

                        This product literally did not even show up on my skin... no matter what technique I tried when applying it this powder does not show up! If you are looking to simply put powder on your face for the sake of putting powder on your face, go for it!

                          I love this powder and product line because I have sensitive skin and acne prone. It covers and looks natural whether your actual skin color or a bit darker. It comes with a little brush and I like that instead of the pad because it actually works. You can put on a little or press into scars or wrinkles.

                            Its my favorite powder yet because my skin breaks out easily and its very light and yellow so this does it! I get the light color and I love it! Its just that it doesnt control shine at all for me.. if it did id give it 5 stars! And I would scream of happines! Hahah because everything else is perfect about it!
