Almay Clear Complexion is an average drugstore foundation. Its strengths are its packaging with a hygienic pump dispenser, its breathability on my face, and its non-comedogenicity. It felt really comfortable on my face, almost like I wasn’t wearing makeup, and it didn’t cause any new zits even after a long day at work. Like any other foundation, it did leave my sebaceous filaments more pronounced at the end of day, even after double-cleansing first with an oil cleanser, then Cetaphil. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on its durability on my very oily skin because I only wore it once due to its color, which is really the main weakness of this line of foundations. There are only four different shades! I took home shade #300 in Naked, but unfortunately it had too much pink for my light-medium, yellow-toned NC20-NC25 coloring. Coverage is medium: It covered the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation left from my acne, but by the same token, it looked flat and unnatural, like I was wearing a coat of paint on my face.

My favorite foundation ever! I always moisturize my face with an spf face moisturizer prior to applying this foundation which I have stuck to using for years! Also, I maintain the clearest skin when using this foundation. It’s important to know your own skin type as what may be amazing for me may not have the same effect on someone else..

I've been using this product for several months and finally realized it's the root cause of dryness and red blemishes that resemble a rash...THAT'S CONSTANTLY ALL OVER MY FACE. I have an appointment with a dermatologist as I'm 16 and thought I just had bad acne. NOPE. If you saw my photos you would think I'm having an allergic reaction to a food. Mom and I finally narrowed it down to this product. I'm on my way to clearing up this horrific rash after several months of not putting together the 4 in 1 is BAD. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT

The hardest thing for me is finding a foundation that doesn't oxidize within 2 hours on my oily skin. And this stuff doesn't, plus it's lightweight, doesn't break me out, and stays pretty matte almost all day. My only issue is the coverage isn't amazing - I find you can't build up coverage when you need it (like over blemishes and scars) , but otherwise, it's my daily go to.

This did something awful to the skin under my eyes. I woke up one morning with weird deep wrinkles and severely dehydrated skin. The skin then started itching. Then swelling and painful. Finally, it flaked off. But just as I started to feel like my eyes were almost healed, it came back. Itching, swelling and deep wrinkles. I couldn't figure out what the deal was. This has been going on for a month. Then I read the reviews on here and realized, when I use this Almay product, it all starts over again. Tossing it in the trash. If I could post pictures, you'd be floored. Thanks for the dr bill and pain and suffering your product put meThru and continues to put me thru.

Been using this a few weeks and LOVE it!!! In shade 500 beige which matches perfect. Covers great, doesn't get slick even without a primer or get dry, doesn't change color or break me out. I have bad melasma (aka pregnancy mask although I've never been pregnant) and this gives a nice satin coverage. Only downfall is the price, $12 at Walmart and $15 at CVS.

Light coverage foundation. Love it but it is NZ$25 (about US$16-18) and hard to find at beauty sales. I have dry to combination skin and I find it sits really well on my skin all day. I teach & am always in the sun & walking around most of the day & it doesn't get patchy after using powder to set it. I don't break out as much compared to other foundations. It is one my favourites & whenever I see my shade at beauty sales I buy atleast 5! Highly recommended

To start off, my skin is oily and very acne-prone. I got this product in the shade "Warm" a year ago. This product broke me out so much. I would always end up with new blackheads and red pimples at the end of the day with this product. It was also definitely this product because as soon as I stopped using it my skin would calm down. It does have salicylic acid in it so it can be drying. Any dead skin may look flaky. There aren't many shades either. If you don't have acne prone skin then maybe this will work for you.

What a disaster!! Had a few blemishes so thought i would try this out. Pretty good coverage. Wonderful colour match ( 400 neutral, im a nw 20/25) .... Next day i had a crazy amount of bumps all over both my cheeks! Just terrible. Nylon-12, sodium chloride...etc ugh please Too many crappy ingredients.

I've been wearing this foundation for a few months now. It doesn't seem to be breaking me out, which is good because it's supposed to do the exact opposite of break me out! I use it with a very good primer. Is shake it up before I use it. I apply it with a new makeup sponge everyday. It dries pretty quick. I can usually get good coverage with one layer. You can probably add another layer or two for extra coverage. I set it with the Almay blemish heal powder. I have a little bit of hyper pigmentation and acne. I get about one or two new spots every other week. I'm probably the color Buff, but I have the color Naked because Buff was sold out. Ivory is almost white! Way to light for me. Overall I think it's a good liquid foundation.
