    Comments about Almay Smart Shade Blush:

    I thought I'd try a "smart shade" color since I have a hard time finding the correct blush color for my fair shin. This is very powdery and looked almost neon on my skin, despite it's claims of adapting to skin color/shade. At least it wasn't expensive.

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade Blush:

      Don't be fooled by what you see in the container, this product blends incredibly well and like magic adjusts perfectly into my Almay foundation as well as a couple additional brands of foundation I use. sometimes I get daring and try other brands for similar blush color but always come back to having this as my go-to for everyday use. Because I'm not a fan of shimmery cheek colors the matte color of this blush looks like the perfect amount of flush on my cheeks. I just wish they would come out with more colors!

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade Blush:

        Due to allergies, I've had to switch makeup. I bought the Nude in the blush, because the other colors looked a bit intense in the package. The nude is wonderful - just a healthy glow but not as deep as a bronzer. The flat brush actually does work in a pinch, but in the morning I use a true blush brush. I recently also bought the pink, but my expectations were low. I was surprised - the pink shows up beautifully on my skin, does not look ashy or powdery, looks like a sheer rosy glow. And the price is great, too.

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade Blush:

          I've been trying to switch to beauty products free of harsh unneccessary chemicals without breaking the bank and this was one of my choices! Previously I was using Loreal True Match Precious Peach Blush and the Almay Smart Shade Coral is very close to that color! With my light skin color it's hard to find good matches without being too faded or too overdone. It takes very little powder to achieve the look you want unlike the True Match where I was having overload my brush just to have a faint color on my cheeks. Doesn't make my skin itchy and adds a lot of warmth to it. I use a contour brush to apply it and use the brush that is included in the packaging as a blending brush.

              A girly girl, I am an absolute fanatic about pretty pink blush, and Almay's pink blush falls amongst my favorites. The only thing that I have yet found that comes close to it is a pretty pink blush from Jane, also available for ordering from Ulta. Anyway, the pink Almay blush does not appear cakey and offers just enough pink to afford us pale girls a pretty, doll like flush!

                Not crazy about the included brush, too flat. I use my own but besides that love the product.

                        Good product. Gives me a subtle glow without looking overdone. It gives you that enough color to give you some depth. Since I have medium skin tone, I needed to use a little more. I use it mainly as a blush, but it can be used as a bronzer too.
