Latest Almay Reviews

Skin Perfecting Comfort Matte Foundation
5.0
Created with Sketch.

16 days ago

This foundation really surprised me. It has a decent coverage and stays matte (approx. 8 hrs). It also stays true to its promise of making your skin smooth and lessens your problematic texture. I am NC 20 and 140 Cool Bare matches me okay. It is leaning more neutral (pinkish) but I can get away with it once the makeup is all done. Quick tip, this foundation will only work if you use a sponge. I find that once the foundation sets, it has a powdery finish (my dry skin gals may not like this) and you may want to set your oily t zone and leave the rest un-powdered. It slightly moves once the oil breaks through the foundation. However, for 8 hours it looks very polished makeup look. This is not a foundation for a no makeup - makeup look, ladies. Overall, I am quite satisfied and yes no pump! However, the formula compensates for its lacklustre packaging. Hope this review helps!

Bought this on clearance and was happy because I've liked Almay foundations in the past. However I can see why it was so deeply discounted now. It doesn't blend in, just sits on top of my skin looking greasy. Maybe it's the spf 40 causing this? And hi to zits! I'm 49 and thanks to this crud I have the complexion of a 15 year old with a french fry jones. At least I'm only out 4 bucks.

I typically use Ulta brow tint and really like it. I picked this up on sale and was disappointed. Packaging claims that this will shape, groom and fill brow area. It does not. The brush wand is narrow and makes it easy to apply the product. It did not provide even coverage of brow hairs or fill in spaces.
