Super great!

This mousse is really great for thosw with oily skin, as it really helps to control oiliness, though it is hard to blend, just like any other whipped foundation, when you blend it nicely it makes your skin glow, even when you sweat up with it and its coverage is absolutely amazing! It is very buildable from medium to full coverage. Super great!

Matches your skin tone

This Smart Shade Mousse Make up by Almay just has only a couple of shades available. I chose the Light / Medium but upon swatching it on my skin, I knew it was a little too dark. However, after it has set, it has magically matched my skin tone, and it looks natural and flawless.

Flawless finish

I just loooove the smooth, creamy texture of this product! So easy to use and blend. It’s supposed to give an airbrushed finish but I like to use a stippling brush for an extra flawless look but I use my fingers too when I feel lazy. Very buildable coverage and really makes my skin tone look more even.

This product is like magic. I was skeptical that it would actually match my skin tone but it does perfectly. It literally matches my skin, and It evens out my complexion and matches my skin tone so you can't even tell I'm wearing anything at all. I highly recommend this product! And Almay is a brand I've always trusted so I love love it

Try it!

It is the first time I tried mousse make up and I have to say, I love how I can blend this product to get the right coverage I want. You will definitely look flawless with this one and it could last you for hours. Saves time because you don’t have to re-apply.

Very Nice!

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup foundation reminds me of Maybelline mousse or cream foundation that was released years ago. I like how this product really gives awesome medium coverage to the skin while adding that comforting touch to the skin as well. I find that it blends easily too. I also like how it stays all day without oiling up.
