Works great and covers blemishes. I am 21 and look for lightweight coverage but nothing cakey looking. I used it and it lasted all day. Not a huge amount of coverage. Would definitely buy again. Was not super expensive either only about 8 dollars at Walmart.

This is my go-to for every day makeup. I don't really like a heavy foundation and don't have a lot of use for full coverage foundations. This is definitely for someone who wants a more weightless/look feel. I like that it blends perfectly into my skin tone and has spf to protect me from the sun. However, this makeup probably isn't for someone looking for more full coverage or a buildable foundation.

I did not really like this product. It didn't really match my skin and was a orange when it dried. It was long lasting. I wouldn't really recommend it to others though. It wasn't a very good quality to me.

very nice sort of "airbrush" effect when using a dense buffing brush. Normally liquid foundation oxidizes terribly on me, but i don't have any issue with this one. Skin looks fairly natural, but try to let it set before adding powder or you may look slightly cakey. Will buy again as Almay never reacts with my skin and I get a natural looking base every time.

Almay goes on so smoothly with the right applicator and matches my skin pretty closely. Paired with a light powder, it’s perfect for winter. Not too thick, not too thin, but nice coverage.

Love this foundation..its super light on the skin really takes away any discoloration you may have biut it is light so if your looking for full coverage this won't be as good fit...I love how it goes on white then magically transforms into your skin tone..I've wasted alot of money buying all different shades on foundation that were either too light or too dark.. with this it takes the guesswork out of it.. perfect color matching every time

Almay Smart Shade Skintone Matching Makeup was a miss for me. Maybe I just got the wrong shade for my skin but it always ends up being too dark. It doesn't give me the natural look I want because it looks like a self tanner gone wrong on me. The color ends up being streaky, whether I use my fingers, a sponge, or a foundation brush for application. The color is patchy at best and streaky at worst - I try to blend and smooth to no avail. I've even tried mixing it with some moisturizer or a liquid foundation with poor results.
I was super disappointed. I had heard such great things about Almay but this just fell flat.

I was so surprised that this B.B. cream was white. I thought no way is it going to match my skin tone. But it did! I love throwing this on for an everyday running out of the house look!

I don’t remember the shade I used but this was always my go to foundation. However I believe they changed the formula and it changed a lot the coverage was light. I wouldn’t recommend this to others unless you are looking for a light coverage.

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