                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

                  The smart shade technology is a joke. I'm fair skinned, and this did not "match" my tone - it made me look like a ghost. Thanks to Ulta's fantastic return policy, I was able to exchange it easily for Revlon's photo finish powder, which has done nicely so far.

                    Needed something light, a finishing powder. This fits the bill. No breakouts, no animal testing.
