obsession {almay smart shade}

For the past six months I have been using MAC Studio Moisture tint as my primary foundation. A couple of weeks ago it was finally on it's last drop so I had to go out and find a replacement which is never an easy thing for me. I have very fair skin so I usually stray away from heavy foundations since they tend to make me look more orange and I can never seem to diminish that darn makeup line on my jaw; I usually stick with tinted primers and top it with loose powder put on by a large brush. So I'm standing in a drugstore for quite some time trying to figure out what the hell I'm going to buy and I scope the Almay Smart Shade and pray that it turns out okay.

This product is amazing, I am so excited I found it and couldn't beat the $13 price tag. When you first get it out of the bottle it looks like a white face moisturizer with little tiny specks in it. The moment it hits your skin it turns into a gorgeous foundation that does some serious blending. My nose and cheek bones are sprinkled with freckles and I have grown to love them so hence why I have problems trying to find something that is for fair skin and won't cover my freckles. This Almay light shade worked perfectly with my face, I put it on after my moisturizer and it feels really light and makes my skin baby soft. It doesn't feel greasy and definitely doesn't shine. I would totally recommend this to someone who likes to wear minimal face makeup but wants to have an even skin tone.

Have you used this product before?

What a great bargain! I have sensitive skin with eczema so I'm usually scared to try anything new. I've been using Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals for about 6 yrs now without any issues.
