Best ever!

By Chloe

from Washington

Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

I don't have any acne except I get a zit here and there but I use this all the time! It never creases or cracks and it lasts all day! I use an Almay primer and then put this on with a beauty blender for a natural look...half the time people don't even know I'm wearing makeup! But when I get a zit it clears it perfectly!

    Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

    This foundation is awesome. Here is the key to full coverage for girls with pigmentation issues- Apply clear complexion concealer first with do foot application gentle tap into skin with finger. Let it dry. Put 5 drops of clear complexion foundation on foundation brush to each side of face just tap on until blended do not buff. Then if you still have some uglies peeping through simply put a little more concealer and tap on.

    I had a bad reaction to younique makeup (don't know why I strayed from Almay) this foundation concealer healed it in ONE DAY. I will never stray again. So natural and pretty for us acne prone gals without looking like a cake face: I do not finish with clear complexion powder I finish with almay pressed powder because it adds a little
    More coverage and I think using the clear complexion powder is overkill with salacylic acid ( although may work for some) I buy the darker shade in pressed powder to contour with: .: thank you almay for making makeup for girls who breakout from everything under the sun!!!!! Never discontinue and never change- this has salacylic acid and chamomile to heal while covering. It's comforable for an 8 hr day of work . Almay will always be the BEST brand ( just look at Kate Hudson)

    Used it for YEARS

    By kwalters

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

    I love this foundation, I'm 25 and have used it since I was 15 or so. It's not full coverage it's more medium but you can build it up... every so often I'll try something new to find better coverage but I still go back to this every time. It's so lightweight and looks so natural. It NEVER gets oily or gross looking no matter how long I wear it. I used to work 12 hour night shifts and it would last all day AND all night through my shift at a hospital. Amazing.

    Sooo worth it!!!

    By Lyddie

    from Elizabeth, NJ

    Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

    So thr coverage is super sheer/natural, but it's definetely buildable to achieve medium coverage to FULL coverage!!! I apply a couple pumps on my face, then distribuite it slightly with a brush first and finally blend it softly all ove my face, and just add extra pumps if you want more coverage. You won't look cakey throughout the day or anything. I'm in love! Honestly didn't think I would like it so much. BTW I do have scars on my chin and cheeks, large pores on my nose, some whiteheads and the foundation covers everything pretty good I have to say Also, I use it in conjuction with Ulta Beauty Matte Face Primer

      Great foundation for the price point. i was looking for a good one that didn't make me oily, and that was under $20. This is better than all my high end foundations! pairs great with the loose finish powder.
      only slight con is i wish there was just a hair more coverage.

      Made me breakout

      By Kylie

      from umm no

      Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

      I loved this product at first, it matched my skin almost exact, it did a pretty decent job at evening skin tone and providing coverage, wore really well, looked good on the skin, then I started to get little bumps on my forehead, chin, and cheeks and I'm pretty confident it was this product. If you don't have as sensitive of skin I defiantly recommend this product!

      Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

      Not a favorite. I have moderate acne and this did nothing to cover it. It kind of evened my overall skin tone out, but that's about it. It contains 0.5% salicylic acid, and I'd rather just use a foundation that does it's job with a serum under it than mess around with this to try to make it cover anything.

        Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

        I am happy with this product, I alternate between cheaper end and higher end cosmetics depending on a variety of things. My acne has been a challenge as of late, so I was happy to find something with active ingredients but not too expensive so its not a big commitment to purchase without testing. The buff blended well with my skin's tone during winter paleness. I recommend you don't allow it to sit for long before blending because it settles quickly. I find it to be medium coverage definitely build-able to full coverage. The first application highlighted and dried out my dead skin cells (mostly because the other acne medications I use cause dryness), so I was careful to exfoliate and moisturize a bit more after that. Even after hours on my skin, it feels clean and in the same place as when I first applied. I also got the cover-up which is great for pimples, not good for under eyes due to the salicylic acid. Lastly, I left it on while going to the gym yesterday and despite sweating profusely, the makeup didn't streak down my face or even crease. So far I really love this stuff!
