Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

I love this product but i do not like the brush it came with. I use a kabuki brush to apply the powder instead of the one that it came with because it is very small and a kabuki brush works way better.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

        I love this powder I have been using it for over a year now. I have tried so many powders both high end and drug store brand and this one has been my favorite so far. I have combination skin and this powder does the perfect job of covering my minor acne and evening out my skin tone. What I love most is that it is super light on my skin and last all day. I also use just the white part of the powder as a highlighter under my eyes to get rid of any dark circles

          This powder will enhance every pore and wrinkle on your case with a fine white unnatural looking dust. Don't get this.

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

            I use this product to set my BB cream. I have acne-prone, sensitive, dry skin, that is EXTREMELY fair. It sets my makeup all day, has never given me issues as far as sensitivity, and is the perfect color when swirled together. I have the lightest shade. I guess the only issue I would have is that it can look cakey if I haven't moisturized well enough beforehand, but that can really be said about any powder. It's awesome, my go-to even compared to high-end brands.

              This is really good for me because I have roseaca. My doctor had suggested this brand so I know it's trustworthy. I've never been let down by anything in the Almay line.

                I love Almay makeup because its hypoallergenic, goes on easy, blends with my skin tone naturally and stays light on my skin. I never wore makeup and found at my age I needed some coverage to blend my skin tone. I love the light feeling on my skin!
