~Weekly Product Highlight~ Almay Smart Shade~

Almay Smart Shade |

I am a big fan of BB/CC creams and this Almay Smart Shade is now a new favorite!  If you want something lightweight to wear during the summer when it’s hot and humid this BB cream is perfect. It gives the right amount of coverage without feeling heavy.  It leaves a flawless looking, smooth base for makeup. Like most BB/CC creams it provides sheer/light cover that can be built up to slight medium coverage.

As you can tell from the above photo, it comes out of the tube an off white slight beige and as it is rubbed in it transforms into your skin’s color for a perfect shade match.  I don’t know how they do it, but it is amazing!

Con: It only comes in 3 shades: light, light/medium and medium. Not a great range.

Natural lighting is the best! You may remember this look from my recent Makeup Of The Day post.  Check it out to see everything that I am wearing on my face.

It reminds me a lot of the Loreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream and has a very similar formula and wear.  I cannot decide which of the two I prefer, they are so similar.  (The  Loreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream does come in four shades: fair, light, medium, and deep, as well as two other formulas one for anti-aging and one for anti-redness.)

What does the Almay Website have to say about it:

“Almay smart shade™ makeup makes it easy to find “the one” with just three skintone-adjusting shades to choose from, not hundreds! It adjusts to the natural tones and nuances of your skin with breakthrough almay tonemimic™ shade-sensing bead technology, which intuitively transforms to your skintone for all day natural looking coverage in your perfect shade. Contains broad spectrum spf 15. Hypoallergenic. Dermatologist tested. Made for sensitive skin.”

What about you? Have you tried any of these Almay Smart Shade?  What do you think?  Have you used other smart shade makeups? I would love to hear your opinion!
