      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

      Bought this for my daughter to use for light summer coverage with a SPF.
      Her skin looks flawless. Will continue to purchase. Also I purchased 2 different colors for her to mix since she is starting out fair but her color will gradually darken over the summer.

        Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

        I use the product as a light foundation and sunscreen. The only drawback is it is hard to find a good color match for my complexion --- not enough choices of colors.

        Physicians Formula CC+ has better coverage

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

            I have been searching for a good foundation and gave this a try, along with the Physicians Formula CC+. This one had hardly any coverage, while the Physicians Formula had quite a bit more coverage. However, neither one did all the things that it claimed to do. These CC creams deliver light coverage. I can see myself wearing this on hot sweltering days or to the pool as SPF or on days when I don't really want to do my makeup, but definitely not on date nights because it just doesn't have adequate coverage.

                  Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

                  I usually spend a lot of money on brand named CC and BB creams but I have to admit this is worth five times what the price is! I was amazed. The color is perfect (I use 02) and usually wear a medium in Bare Minerals or 001 or Fair2 in Dior.

                    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

                    Even though the label did not say "non-comedogenic," I decided to give it a try anyway, because Almay is known for being gentle. The product felt greasy, and never seemed to set on my skin (just stayed as a shiny layer). There was no way I could use this product without powder. After about a week and a half, my skin started to break out. I HATE wasting money, but I had to throw this almost brand-new product out.

                      Evens out skin tone, looks natural, doesn't settle into small creases in skin. If your skin is not oily, you can wear it without powder for a natural look. Easy to apply.
