      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

      I have only tried a very few primers and this one is my favorite. This primer is very light and not a lot of product is required for full application. This product goes on clear, so no need to worry about the colors in the bottle.

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

          I could not get passed the smell to even know if this works or not. It smells so god awful that holding my breath didn't even work and I had to wash my face immediately after applying it. I am actually appalled that Almay would even release something that smells like that to the general public. Returned it immediately.

          Ineffective and smells unpleasant

          • Bad odor
          • Ineffective

          Best Uses

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade Perfect Correct Primer Clear:

            My daily makeup routine for skin consists of primer, BB cream, and then concealer. The first time I tried this primer, I immediately noticed it had an unpleasant odor. It is reminiscent of either rotten eggs or what I would describe as the essence of a fart. I can't put my finger on it, but it is quite off-putting. When you pump the product, the green, lavender and clear gel mix together, but not completely into one color. (Don't worry, there is no strange color at all when you put it on your face.) You also need to work fast because the product dries quickly. As a primer, I don't think it works well because it feels sticky, even after most of it has absorbed into the skin. Moreover, it's equally ineffective for illuminating (lavender)/color correcting (green). I went one day without the primer and just put BB cream on directly. Since it looked exactly the same as when I use the primer + BB cream, I concluded that only my BB cream was working to reduce my red spots.

              I was hoping it would cover the light red veins on my face. It does a pretty good job but not as much coverage as I had hoped.

              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

                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.

                  This primer is not good at all, it doesn't even feels like a primer, this not works, and it smells so bad, i wasted twelve dollars of nothing, and it did break me out everytime i used, this is not worth at all..
