Comments about Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup:

I was looking for an everyday foundation with medium coverage with little product, that isn't very expensive. I've never used an Almay makeup, only the makeup remover pads (and that was many years ago), but I've heard good thing about the brand so when I saw it was on sale I decided to take chance on it.
Pros, I would say, is that is a pump; the color is a bit light for me but the next shade would be to dark but with powder and bronzer it is perfect; I've read that many people have problems with the blending but I put it on with a beauty blender and it blends wonderful; it has last on my skin for about 10 hrs (of course I do blot my foundation, to avoid oxidization, before applying powder) without reapplying powder; it has SPF 20; light to medium coverage, it is a bit buildable.
Cons, very little color selection; for the type of foundation it is, I find the full price to be a bit expensive; if I don't do the blotting and setting powder it doesn't last very long and can get a bit greasy looking on hot days.
I would only repurchase if I found it on big sale like I did, it worked fine but I won't say it is a great drugstore foundation, I will continue my search.

    Comments about Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup:

    I set with a matte spray from NYX to lose the greasy look, have to blend it very well as it blotches on around the mouth or over a blemish. I put a powder over but if you want a lighter make up just wear it alone. It definitely makes my face look brighter more awake and fresher. Great start to someone beginning to age (I'm late 20's)

    Clogged my pores

    Comments about Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup:

    I bought this after Almay discontinued their Nearly naked liquid makeup. I found this as a replacement, same brand and seemed to be the same texture and same color. I have never had skin issues. I've always had great skin. After using the wakeup brand I noticed a bunch of bumps on my face all over. Took me a while to put two and two together but I'm pretty sure this is what is clogging my pores.
    Other than the pore clogging issue with my skin, I love the other qualities of this product. It is very lightweight and has a dewy finish, which I like. It is good for very light skin and not too expensive.
    I am disappointed I have to switch because I can't find anything similar.

          Comments about Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup:

          I was not a fan of this foundation. For as much as it is compared to other store brands like Loreal, it is not a good product unless you like light coverage makeup. It was very greasy for me, didn't apply well and my face felt very sticky afterwards

            Comments about Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup:

            I was very happy with this foundation at first. The color matched my skin tone perfectly. However, it looked dewy, and after a few hours got a little caky and settled in my pores. When I put water on my face before washing it, the foundation foamed up and turned white. Even with one drop of water. That probably shouldn't happen.

                I have tried many different foundation brands from Benefit to Clinique to Stila. This is my favorite! The Almay brand is great for my dry, sensitive skin. This makeup also matches my fair skin well and gives full coverage. It also stays on throughout the day. I really like Almay Wake Up foundation makeup.
