Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

The product semi works but for me to notice a difference I have to put double the recommended amount on. There is a really weird smell that comes with it and I generally hold my breath when I'm putting it on. This product isnt terrible and it does even my skin tone, I just feel there are better products out there that work better and don't have a weird odor

    Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

    I tried it once, returned it right away. The smell is TERRIBLE. When I smelled it I was confused about if it is supposed to smell that way and according to the other reviews many feel the same.
    Why is this stuff still available to buy?? Trust me, you can buy something much better for the same or similar price. Don't settle for this.

    Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

    I would never ever recommend this product to anyone. I purchased this after running out of primer late in the night, and it was a horrible mistake. What is with the smell? It smells like rotten eggs, and it's so heavy on my skin. I am afraid to scratch my nose in fear that my make up will rub off. On another note, it has broken my face out really bad. So if you want to smell like old eggs and look like a 12 year old that just hit puberty, then use this product.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

      I have red splotchy cheeks and have to wear foundation everyday. After reading reviews, I was very skeptical about his product. I applied it to my skin after taking a shower and nothing happened. However-a few minutes later after it absorbed into my skin I noticed that my skin tone was more even and less red. This does not mean that my skin was flawless and that I didn't use foundation, because I did after-but my foundation stayed put and the redness did not show through.

      Unfortunately, I think this product got bad reviews because of unrealistic expectations. I am satisfied with the results that I got because I saw an improvement.

        This just went into the garbage today. It smells like rotten urine and leaves my skin oily after an hour. I decided to try it again today and what a mistake my foundation looks terrible, splotchy and oily!

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

            This could be a good primer for normal or dry skin but not great for my oily skin. It makes my skin feel soft, look dewy, and blends my makeup nicely but after 2 hours my skin looks very oily, shiny, and the foundation kinda floats on top. Yuck.

              Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

              I was really hoping it would correct the red blotches that I've developed as I get older, but it didn't. I think the green and lavender is just a way to make it pretty in the bottle so you'll buy it. It did go on smoothly and seemed to help my foundation application. I have naturally oily skin and this definitely didn't help that. Within a couple of hours my makeup had melted off anyway. Save your money.

                This actually STINGS my skin. Quite a surprise coming from Almay. In addition, the color correcting does absolutely nothing. Save your money. Do not buy this.
