I struggle finding a foundation that I love because my skin tone changes and my skin is super dry. I found this on clearance for 6 dollars at Kroger, what a steal right! It is a nice formula not to thick not to runny. I have tried applying it with brushes and my fingers. I personally prefer applying it with my fingers. I really feel like it gets in the crease around my nose and lips. It does come in several shades which is nice because I can switch around I get tanner or lighter in the winter months. I think it has a pretty decent coverage than some of the other liquid foundations I have used. I also noticed that I have less breakouts while using this foundation. It is worth a try if you are like me and can not currently afford higher end make up brands. Almay is a great brand for sensitive skin types as Well! I am currently using the shade neutral 400

Review for: Buff more...
I am a very pale person and it can be very hard for me to find my shade sometimes. Buff is the closest shade to my natural color but still not spot on. This is more of a medium coverage foundation, the key to making it look nice is to always apply it with a beauty blender, if you use a brush it will streak!

I’m not sure how well it helped with my acne but It doesn’t seem to make the acne worse which is a plus.

I have dry skin and enlarge pores and it doesn’t seem to crease or make my pores more obvious.

For the price it is worth trying out. Not a go to foundation for myself but I’m sure there are people out there that feel different.

The coverage of this foundation I would say is probably more of a medium coverage. I like it a lot. It lasts all day, and I really feel like the clear complexion lives up to its name. I’ve never had any breakouts and I don’t worry when I apply it to places where I may have a blemish. The only gripe I have about it is for places that get oily, you would benefit greatly by using a primer or a really good setting powder. It doesn’t seem to like oily skin at all. It leaves a somewhat dewy finish and let’s all sorts of products melt into it beautifully.

when applying this with a wet sponge the coverage is flawless. This item is my holy grail when it comes to drug store foundations. This product does not spread well with a brush or by hand, I found that the wet brush works best. I give this a 5 star review for the amazing coverage!! with no setting powder needed. saves me a step in my routine

Really like this foundation :) Its a good medium coverage. The main thing I appreciate about this product is that there is salicylic acid to help combat new breakouts. I actually prefer this when I'm on my cycle (tmi lol) but it seriously helps with my hormonal acne! It has decent staying power, it begins to fade around the 8 hour mark.

My holy grail foundation. I’ve never had good skin. This has really helped to reduce breakouts. The coverage is good without looking and feeling like a mask. It fights pimples and covers them up! I’ve used this for well over 10 years now. I’ve never found a foundation I liked better

I decided to try this product because I was having blemishes come up out of nowhere. My skin has slightly improved since. I have combination skin and get oily super fast. This is a lightweight makeup that leaves my skin smooth. It's easy to build coverage and if you use a powder to set then it works even better. Overall pretty good! Fair price and easy to find.

I love this foundation so much! It is wonderful with salicylic acid to help clear my flaws while also hiding them!! I don’t like the packing though, as the pump makes it difficult to get the last bit of product out, although it is great when completely full!

I used this for the first time and wasn't thrilled, but the second time I enjoyed the natural finish. This is best for oily and combo skin. As you can see by the oil test (12 hours) Almay has the least oil.

Usually I try and stick to high end foundations but I had been breaking out from something, I tried this to help the acne. And It helped, it’s not magic but it does help. It’s medium coverage can be buildable. It’s a nice finish and it lasts on my oily skin, for my 10 hour work days. I don’t wear it everyday because I love my high end. But it’s a real good foundation if you don’t mind drugstore .
