Does not absorb / blend well

Pros

    Cons

    • Difficult To Use
    • Does Not Absorb
    • Streaky
    • Too Greasy

    Best Uses

    • Dry/Chapped Skin

    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

    I bought two of these in one fell swoop, given a discount on two. Although I will likely use up my tubes because I hate wasting, I will not buy this brand again. The cream is very oily / shiny looking and feeling, and as you try to blend it into your skin it simply sits on the surface, rather than absorbing. As I try to rub it in, what I'm left with is streaks from my finger motions on my face. I have tried other BB creams that offer much more even coverage and less oil. Yuck. The search continues!

      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

      This producty is not for me, it's too much like foundation. I usually go with minimal product on my face but this is too much like a foundation. I will keep it as a backup for when I run out of my usual product but I will not be buying again. For someone who usually wears a lot of face make-up but wants something lighter this would likely work well.

        I use this product everyday for a light coverage. It is absolutely great! It's so easy to apply and afterwards, it looks so natural. You can't get any better than this.

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

          I had been researching bb and cc creams for the pale/ super fair skin types. I had seen several youtube videos with girls I thought were as fair as I am achieve great results with this product and thought I would give it a try. Wrong assumption on my part. More orange like undertone. Not terrible like an oompa loompa but still more orange than I was looking for. The search continues. I would however recommend this to someone darker than me it had great coverage.

                Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

                I love the idea of a CC cream; everything in one product. I have tried many but for me this was the best. It is moisturizing so if you have oily skin it is probably not the best choice for you. It gives good coverage without looking cakey. I have fair yellow undertones and it matches perfect. I have seen the poor reviews and I guess just of us has different skin types and it is about finding what works for you but I sure enjoy spending under $10 on sale instead of $40 plus.

                  I wanted to use it as a daily moisturizer with a hint of color. It was thick and did not go on smoothy. I am planning to return this to the store.

                  When you apply the product you immediately look shiny and greasy. I add powder overtop and it disappears, An hour later your back to looking extremely shiny and greasy and fake. This is even with a shine free primer. Never will I use this and I do not recommend it!
