    Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

    I had this product recommended to me by a friend and thought I would try it out. After my first use I wasn't happy at all but gave it a few tries to see if I could find a way to work with it. What bothers me the most about this product is how much it oxidizes. The color goes on perfectly but as it set it in it turns so orange on my face even though I bought a shade lighter than I would normally wear. The formula is also super oily right out of the tube and caused me to get painful breakouts which I'm normally not prone to get. Overall I hated this product and ended up throwing it away because there was no way I could make it work.

      Covered what I wanted to be covered without being too noticeable. Looks like a better version of my natural skin and it doesn't make your face all the same color with no depth.

          Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

          I have light to medium olive skin, which means my skin's undertone is quite yellow, leaning towards green. This makes finding matching foundations really difficult, and why I was so excited for this product. The majority of foundations are beige/orange or pink. This CC cream claims to adjust to your skin tone, but it just doesn't! I was so disappointed to find that this is just another beige CC cream that ends up looking bright orange on my yellow skin. If you have beige skin, this might work for you, but if you are very cool with pink or even blue undertones, or strong yellow/green undertones like me, this will not work. Because of that fact, I can't recommend this to anyone. The actual product is okay. It isn't a bad CC cream, but it isn't the best I have tried either. It goes on fairly smooth, and blends in well. It has pretty good coverage for a CC cream. It has quite a strong sun screen scent, but I personally don't mind that. It does tend to settle into any lines you may have, though, and exaggerate them. For that reason, along with the fact that it is bright orange on my skin, I can't wear this product. I had high hopes, but this did not work out at all!

            It is so easy to apply! I just dot it over my face and blend it in with my fingers and I'm good to go! I use it almost everyday because I hate how foundation is so heavy and cakey (and takes a while to apply). This gives a nice light coverage, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

            Comments about Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector:

            I love it, just what I was looking for. Unfortunately it causes breakouts for my skin. I loved that it has spf 35 (I believe.) I have a few other products that break my skin out, so I just have rather sensitive skin. But if you don't and you are looking for a good lightweight and protecting product. This is for you.

              Nice product. A very natural look. I can't speak to the sun protection factor because I have been diligent about wearing a sun hat.
