      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

      This product does not work at all. It feels sticky when you put it on, and the feeling doesn't change, even after it's dried. No change in look of skin whatsoever, either. I have used my foundation with and without this primer, and it looked exactly the same both times. However, the worst thing about this product is definitely the smell! It smells terrible, like spoiled milk mixed with feet! If you are looking for a good multi color correcting primer, definitely go with Stila, it's 100% worth it!

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

        This stuff works great with liquid foundations as well as cream foundations when mixed together. For those giving it bad ratings, you have to let it sit for some time before applying a liquid foundation. Also, this primer isn't meant to cover up harsh redness. It's meant for minimal imperfections. Half a pump is all you need. I find it works best with maybelline's fit me matte and poreless. Also, I have combo oily skin and this prime hasn't budged nor caused any excess oil to shine through.

              I was buying Prescriptives custom makeup until they went out of business. Was worried about finding a replacement. My sister in law recommended the Almay. I have always liked Almay because it is hypoallergenic.

                The product works well. It does smell like white glue when first applied. The odor does not last, so it is not so off putting to stop using it.

                Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

                I read the really bad reviews on this product after buying it and feel sort of surprised. I mean, I understand what everyone is saying about the bad smell, but it's more like a strange glue smell or something, I don't know. Either way, I like this stuff enough, I feel like it really works for its intended use. I'm a redhead with the fairest skin possible, which means that all of my pink undertones are extremely prominent, especially in my cheeks, and I HATE it. This stuff does a pretty good job of evening out the pink in my skin. I just put some of this on, wait for it to dry, then apply some BB cream over it. I even noticed that my skin looked very even-toned and not all red in the gross fluorescent lights at my school, which seem to always make me look redder. Either way, I'd say that I would buy this again, it's not too bad of a product.
