    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.

        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!

                    For some reason, this product made my pores look huge. I thought it would be similar to the color adjusting formula but it was heavier and darker, even though the same shade number. I prefer the older version.

                      Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

                      I have combination skin and have been looking for a light coverage that blurs the imperfections and evens out my skin tone. I have tried CC creams that cost upwards of $35 and would pick this one over those any day. Applied with a foundation brush in a downward motion and then blended with a sponge has helped me eliminate a primer and daily moisturizer. I am in love with this product and have purchased for my 60 year old mother as well.
