Never realized how much I loved this foundation until on a whim I tried something else. Coverage is more sheer than many, blends beautifully, evens skin tone. Almost think of it as a bb or cc. A little goes a long way. I just dab on with my finger tips and then blend. I wish the packaging had a pump, but it works and its inexpensive. If there's something out there that is better, I want to know what it is

I like this concealer, but I feel like it doesn't have great coverage for my undereye circles. I think it works best for blemishes!

Light to light-medium coverage.
Bottle is very functional and provides an adequate amount of product with a light squeeze.
Product doesn't feel 'mask-like'
I totally would have bought this again!
I have very fair skin with pink undertones and this product ends up orange on me. Yuck.
And I really wanted it to work too... :`(

Amazing! MUFE F&B has been the only liquid foundation I have liked...until now!!
Light to medium coverage, doesn't emphasize flakes, crease or pool in pores. Goes on like a dream and wears well all day with a healthy dewy finish that doesn't look the least bit greasy.
Love, love, love!!

I don't use foundation every day, and I've never had one that felt like my "go-to" product -- until now, I think! I am quite pleased I tried the anti-aging version of Almay's Smart Shade foundation. I dislike heavy foundations (and I don't actually need heavy coverage), so something like this is perfect -- it provides medium coverage but feels non-existent. I like it better than Almay's regular Smart Shade product (for whatever reason, that doesn't mimic my skintone as well) or Neutrogena Glow Sheer. This also gets points for the tube packaging -- it keeps things nice and sanitary, and takes up minimal space in my makeup drawer.

This foundation makes my skin look amazing!! I have very fair (nc15) that is normal/dry and acne prone. I always seem to have trouble finding the right shade, coverage, and finish that looked natural and flawless. The smart shade anti aging foundation, in shade light, gives me medium coverage with a lovely neutral undertone and a healthy glow. It looks good all day and leaves my skin very soft. I will be buying this as long as Almay makes it!

I am sure this will be discontinued since I love it so much. You do have to blend it in fast with your fingers. It goes on nicely over Neutrogena moisturizer. The light color matches my pale skin for the winter months and the light medium color works great during the summer. The best thing about it is it absolutely does NOT emphasize pores or lines or set in creases! Virtually every make-up I try will do one or the other...or all. I get compliments ALL the time on how I have no wrinkles! I do.....people just can't notice them with this make-up. It's definitely a tinted moisturizer and not a foundation. It covers fairly well but I don't have a lot of spots to cover. I will continue to buy it as long as it is on the market!

Nice packaging. It, or course, doesn't match your color. I got the lightest and looked sort yellow, like I was sick or jaundiced, not like I was a little bit tan. It's really luck if you find a color that matches your skin and there are only 4. I expected it would pass better, but not have the best coverage. It's a bit confusing to put on if you are pale, as it's hard to see the white. You don't have long to blend either, as it sets fast. However, if you do a bit a time with your fingers, you will get an even spread. I'd say it gives medium to light coverage. Goes on easy and felt pretty nice. When I took it off it was orange and dark on the kleenex. I can't speak to the other shades. I think if you found a good match this, this might be cool for days you don't need a lot of coverage. It's a bit pricey at $13 for a drugstore brand, but would last a long time I think.

Guess I was expecting alot more from this "makeup" other than some dewyness. The anti-aging thing is merely the spf sunscreen with very minimal color enhancement, thus the smart shade match. I wear a higher level sunscreen than this everyday so I was hoping for alittle more oomph in the overall finish. Seems like I could create this foundation myself by using my heavier sunscreen with alittle liquid foundation mixed in. Like I said, guess I was expecting more than this delivers. And it's pricy for what you get. Returning pronto!

I'm so glad I listened to the positive reviews on here and gave this product a shot--this is the best tinted moisturized I've found! It was about $13 USD which seems a bit much for a drugstore brand, but after using it, I realize the product will last me a looong time--you only need a little. I love the tube packaging--super portable, closes securely, and you can squeeze out the exact amount you want. I purchased the light/medium color since my typically fair skin is a bit tan in the summer, and the color matches perfectly! I do notice a slight shimmer, but I believe this helps blend imperfections.
I like the SPF 20, and this product has not broken out or irritated my typically sensitive skin. Coverage is light, but I find I can layer the product to make it heavier where I need more. I usually use a foundation brush with foundations, but for this, blending with my fingers is easiest since the makeup seems to "set" quickly once its on my skin.
The only drawback with this product is that after a few hours my skin gets a little too "dewy" and I need to blot the shine with some powder or blotting papers. Overall, I like the natural look it imparts, the color match is great, and it's so easy to take with me and apply easily on the go! This is my go-to foundation for now!
