Most Helpful Positive Review finally made a lighter shade!
This foundation has been my favoite for years. The only thing I hated about it was that the lightest shade ivory was quite too dark for me. It seriously has always lasted all day, never emphasized pores or dryness, even tends to look better as the day went on... I recently picked it up once more after trying out different things to try and find something that would fit my pale skin better, but had to come back because I just can't find anything as long lasting and beautiful as this. So I grabbed the lightest shade- per usual, and then later on when I dispenced it I noticed that it looked lighter than before, so I checked the shade and discovered they had made a new, lighter shade!!!!!!! Couldn't be happier!!!!!!!!!!! It almost fits my skin in the light and doesn't leave as obvious a line on my neck and still preforms as well, in fact, they reformulated this and I feel like it's even better.... now it has 2% sa instead of .05%. It also looks glowy-er in my opinion. I had contacted the company several times in the past requesting and pleading that they make a lighter shade of this and I and thrilled they actually listened. Sometimes the lightest shade of foundation somehow doesn't preform the same as the other shades (who knows why?), but this one is perfect. I'll probably use this every day now! I'll no longer need to mix foundations! I hope they make an even lighter one in the future, as this isn't a perfect match but its SO much better. Thank you so much for listening to your customers! Pale girls need to match their neck!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not what I expected..
I use this with the matching Blemish Healing concealer because without it I get no coverage at all. I suppose it's good to use since I have very oily, acne-prone skin. It doesn't do a good job at keeping my face matte during the day and it makes my face look patchy mostly on my chin when it wears away later in the day.
It feels really heavy on my face and I typically wear full coverage makeup that doesn't feel as thick as this does.
I would only recommend it because using other foundations when you have acne-prone skin can be a game of roulette really and you never know what will break you out. This certainly does nothing of the sort and won't break your budget, though it's a little pricy for the poor quality.
They have good skin tones, they match me at least but if you don't like thick makeup this is NOT for you.

I love this foundation! I have sensitive acne prone skin and I found this product doesn't break me out or irritate my skin like others. I tend to get a little oily around my nose and this foundation doesn't separate like other "complexion clearing" foundations I've tried. It also blends very nicely into my skin.

Probably the first foundation I ever tried as a teen with acne, still works great today even as an adult without acne.
Holy Grail Foundation

I've used this foundation for YEARS and no other has compared. It always looks good after a long day and can survive the heat. Only thing is that it has a HORRIBLE color range, which is disappointing.

I love this stuff!
barrenground from undisclosed
I love this stuff! It's one of the only foundations that my dermatologist lets me use that actually covers anything. The other non-comedogenic foundations I have tried hardly cover anything. You can use a little for light coverage or use a lot for full coverage. I've applied it with a sponge, brush, and silicone sponge and it worked great with all. It even works fine if you just apply it with your fingers. I have extremely acne prone skin and it does not make me break out. It also has Salicylic Acid in it which helps with breakouts. They have a matching concealer too which makes it even better! :) Almost everyone in my family uses it now too and they all love it just as much as I do!

Almay is the only brand that has colors that match my skin.

I like to add a little of this with my complete coverage foundation when I am having bad skin days. It helps clear up my skin really well and I just use 1 or 2 pumps a little goes a long way. I does work fairly well for my skin type.
It worked soooo well
saras574 from undisclosed
It worked soooo well on my face and made a lot of "imperfections" be hidden and lasted for long wear with other make up. It made my face look and feel better and I don't think I really would do anything to improve this product , I would definitely recommend to others.

This foundation had ok coverage but for me it didn't seem to cover enough . I did notice a bit of a weird smell to this product as well but maybe that's just the bottle I purchased . I think it's a pass next time .

Lightweight but good coverage and doesn't clog pores. Would recommend if you have oily skin or breakouts.

This has been my holy grail foundation for a long time. I hated when they changed the formula, however the change didn't seem to affect the application or the wear time of the actual foundation. All in all, I will continue to wear this and I would also reccomend this to others as well

GREAT product. Was recommended by my dermatologist. It did not disappoint. I highly recommend this. It blends very well
Evil Eye from co
Amazing foundation. Stays on longer than the other long lasting Almay foundation and does not feel sticky. Unfortuanatley, there's not much in the contaier and I the way the pump is made and the thickness of the foundation sticks to the bottle and will end up staying on the inside of the walls of the bottle and not at the bottom. Doesn't last long and I'd be very surprised if it has the amount it says it has.
I was looking for
ashleyg518 from undisclosed
I was looking for a foundation that had at least medium coverage, lasted at least the work day or close to, wasn't heavy feeling, had spf, was good for my skin and not too expensive. I would say this one hit all those things and I would buy this foundation again!
I use this in

I use this in the summer time. This is a lite coverage. I do have to use primer and concealer if I want a long lasting finish. I would love to see an spf added to it. It is buildable makeup if you use a beauty blender.
