Almay is awesome! I use this quite a bit! The coverage is light and perfect. This is a great product!

I do not like to use this foundation a lot. It does not give good coverage. The shade seems to turn a little orangey when I first put it on, I had to blend a lot. I liked to use it as a tinted moisturizer during the summer since it was so light, but I prefer to use a BB over this foundation.

There are much better drug store foundations such as the Revlon Color stay. The Almay Smart Shade Foundation is very watery and doesn't provide good coverage. It also does not mach as well as I had hoped

I'm so fair, that this is my problem with most foundations. I have it in fair to light, and its...orange? it's very weird, and doesn't blend at all.

For the price this foundation is decent enough. I tried using it but it would cause me to break out and it has very little coverage. It matches my skin tone well, but I would rather go out and just buy the foundation that perfectly matches my skin tone. If you are a person looking for light foundation coverage at an affordable price, this would be the way to go.

I honestly believe that the "changing to your perfect shade" is just a gimmick to make you be fascinated with it and buy it. This turns me orange. This turns my mom orange. We have different skin tones, and she put some on her face, and i put some on my face, then we wiped it off. It was the same color. She is a lot darker than me, and I am very pale. I love Almay, but I will never buy this product again

I purchased this a few months ago just to try it out, I am very pale and have combination skin. I was hoping it would truly match my skin tone. It did not, at all. It was too dark, and had a very coral hue to it. It also made my skin very oily by the end of the day. I probably wouldn't suggest this to someone unless they had more color to their complexion

This makeup is amazing! It covers my face and evens it out and even covers minor blemishes! It's great!

This stuff is great! i used to use this when my face was clear of acne or break outs so i can have an even complexion but if now I'm very pale and have no life in my skin so i switched to a different makeup foundation but other than that awesome product:)

This is my usual go to foundation, and overall it's good for the money. I have noticed sometimes if you don't shake it first it will come out a horrible orange looking color and streak your face! I buy the medium shade and it matches pretty accurately. It's best not to wear alone, going over it with a powder foundation will help blend everything in!

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