        Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup:

        Love this product, it's my go to drugstore foundation product that will never fail me! Don't wear product on your face overnight of course. Recently bought the IT BB cream from Ulta by recommendation of Ulta staff and yes it was more coverage than this Almay foundation but by the end of the day it's clogging my pores and causing white heads to pop up! That foundation was $48! What a rip off I'm going back to my $10-$15 Almay Clear Complexion foundation!

        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.

          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.

                Almay Clear Complexion Makeup middle tones are “Naked", "Neutral" and "Beige”. Because everyone’s skin differs we suggest you go to an Ulta store to test different shades and consult an Ulta Beauty professional for assistance.
