I received a coupon to try an Almay product and chose this foundation. Fortunately it was free because I wasn't too fond of it. I bought a shade closest to the foundation I wear now (and it actually looked really close!) but turned out to be way too dark for my face - the range of shades for this foundation aren't great. The product went on smooth, didn't make my skin look dry or oily, etc, so that was a plus. However, the product slid off my face so easily and there's really no point in a foundation without staying power.
This was my first time trying Almay foundation and I probably won't try any others in the future. Though a great price, I'm sure there are much better foundations that cost the same amount.
This product does not live up to it's claims. It does not make me look any less tired, and the product smelled terrible. I could've just gotten a bad bottle but it also became so patchy after a few hours.
The best part about this product compared to others is the initial chill you feel on your skin when you first apply it. It's great to put on in the morning, especially to cover up the dark circles under your eyes. The powder is cold, so it definitely wakes you up! If you're good about putting the cap back on, the powder will stay cold for about 95% of the bottle. As you use up the product, it loses its chill a little.
It's great for sensitive skin, it's hydrating, and it blends evenly. It also helps blend your pores more than some other foundations I have tried.
