I recently tried out this product and at first I had a really hard time figuring out how to use it. For starters I have pretty dry skin, and because is winter I tend to get little dry patches around my face. I found that this foundation only accentuated the dry spots and made them stand out. When I tried it again I moisturized a lot and used a different primer and that helped. Over all I think the coverage is nice and light weight, but it’s also not a full coverage. To put this on I had to apply t like lotion, rubbing it in circular motions to get it on, and then use a beauty blender to ride of lines and pay it into the skin. I recommend using a pore filling primer when using this because I think it will help. Overall my only problems with it were the coverage, and the application: it’s not user friendly. The price point is also not the best because it’s a drugstore foundation and it’s still $11. Yes it does have an spf which will be good in summer and it is a good product, it just has some kinks that need worked out :)

This has been great for saving money between spring and summer as my skin tone is getting darker. It does a good job of matching my skin tone and making me feel more put together in these warm months and on days where I don’t feel like putting on a full face. It helps to even out my skin tone but doesn’t offer a lot of coverage- as to be expected. Great buy for the price.

I don’t wear a lot of foundation. I happened to stumble upon this and decided to try it. It’s light coverage which I love (I don’t want to cover up my freckles) but it evens out my skin tone. It’s hard for me to find a more dewy foundation but I am so happy I found this. I will definitely purchase again and recommend to anyone who prefers a more natural look.

My skin is very light. This product blends well. I have a naturally oily face and this product becomes dewy throughout the day. The product does last all day. I work 12 hour shifts. When I take the product off there is still a considerable amount on the remover wipe. The price point is good for the product. It is well worth the 12-15 dollars

I love my Almay matte, skin matching foundation! It's so light weight, yet gives you great coverage! Covering those pesky aging marks, uneven skin tones, acne and scars! I love that it doesn't feel like there's makeup on my face when I'm wear this foundation. Overall, Almay skin matching foundation is one if my favs 💜 I'd definitely recommend it!

Im not a hive fan of this this foundation. It doesn't seem to match my skin tone (I have very pale skin) and because I'm working it so hard to to get it to blend into my skin to get it to match it seems to get overworked and doesn't blend the best. Now, my mom uses this stuff and loves it, so it does work for some people.

This is a really nice B.B. cream. It makes for a quick, even base for a natural makeup day. When you squeeze the product out of the tube, it comes out white with some blue beads in it. You have to rub it together in your fingers to get the color to change before you apply it to your face. It’s a really neat product!

Its well priced but it seems like the skin tones this is made for doesn't really match all colors. I purchased two and one was too dark and the other was too light with undertones that didn't really match my own. I really wanted it to qork because it seemed like an all in one.

I use this daily in the shade Just Medium. I find it works better for my skin tone in the winter rather than when I’m tan in summer. I like this because it does TRULY stay matte all day. The coverage is pretty sheer in all honesty. I could use more coverage, but I use this because of the finish and how good my face feels when using it! I don’t need a moisturizer beforehand or primer because this seems to tickle all of those things. If you want healthy looking skin with sheer to light coverage, this is for you!

I love that this product acts as a moisturizer, spf, and B.B. cream all in one. It is so easy to apply with your hands and for an every day basis provides the perfect amount of coverage. The finish is vey skin like... matte but not drying. I do use a translucent setting powder over top just to ensure it lasts all day. I will definitely continue to buy this product!

Does this really work good? Or does it end up making your forehead all shiny by the end of the day?
