    Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

    I wouldn't use this for coverage. I do love that it's light weight and controls shine. It also blends well with skin tone.

    I don't like the brush included for application. It is useless.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

      I have very sensitive skin that is prone to breaking out into hives when it comes into contact with most cosmetic/hygiene product chemicals. I was forced to buy Almay because my regular make-up was starting to make my face itch.

      I have been very pleased with the coverage, the price, and the look of this makeup. I definitely recommend it to anybody with skin that is ultra-sensitive like mine.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder:

      This is a great foundation; it hides blemishes and evens my skin really well. You may need to re apply a few times throughout the day but that's the case with most powders.

        Apply over my BB cream to seal it. Also apply alone without anything under and works well to cover, even out skin Tone! Really like this and it's my 2nd time purchasing it.

                        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!
