      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup:

      I am 64 and have been using this product for over 4 years. I do not like foundations that look caked on nor do I like to see someone wear makeup that I want to just scrape off! This is lightweight and blends in very well so that it covers my freckles comfortably yet does NOT look like I am wearing makeup. I wear it outside and to the gym and it looks perfectly natural. I wear #300. Highly recommend this!!!

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup:

      I didn't think it covered very well. I have blotchy spots and I was looking for something that would even out my skin tone and this did not do that. I guess I'll have to keep looking. To me this is nothing more than a sheer lotion.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup:

      I have very pale, ghostly white skin and it's VERY hard for me to find a foundation that is my skin-tone. I also have very dry skin. This foundation is PERFECT for ALL skin types and has a natural skin finish (Not oily or dry-looking). Sadly, the shade "100 Light/Pale" is WAY too dark for my skin. I have tested it on my face, arms, neck, and it's just too dark. I really wish this foundation came in lighter shades. I thought I found my perfect foundation! :(

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup:

            I found that this foundation does blend to match my ideal color. I did samples on my face, stomach, and legs (all are slightly different in shade) and it blended perfectly and matched all of these areas. It covers redness and uneven skin color and eliminates my pores. I have only bought one jar and it has lasted me a year before I needed to buy a new one, so I think that is a pretty good value. A little goes a long way!

            Tip: For dry skin- apply lotion and a primer before the foundation. I have recently started applying lotion, primer, a sheer setting powder, and then the foundation and it has worked perfectly for my dry skin!

            Tip: To minimize pores- Apply counterclockwise and then clockwise over large pore areas.

            Tip: Use your fingers, not a sponge or brush! This allows the product to match your skin as closely as possible.

                I wore this makeup for a week and on my second week I noticed this was not turning color and I started having an allergic reaction to it. I immediately took it off. Be careful with this product I may have got a bad batch.

                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup:

                  When I first purchased this product, I was looking for a full coverage whipped foundation to replace the one that another manufacturer quit making. I had tried almost everything and hated them all until I found this! I opened up the jar and thought I had gotten a bad batch of makeup because it was white. But I then saw it was supposed to match your shade, so I put it on and loved it the first day. It offers great coverage, doesnt come off (even after swimming) and I can tan in it and it will still match my skin shade. It's crazy!
