Almay Canada Product Review


Almay – Smart Shade, Smart Balance

If it seems difficult to find a face powder that matches your skin color, Almay has the perfect solution for you!  Almay Smart Shade Smart Balance Powder is a light-weight pressed powder that can double as a foundation.

Almay Smart Shade comes in three basic shades, light, light/medium, and medium.

The beauty of this powder is the fact that it instantly transforms to match the shade of your skin!  Almay Smart Shade is great for oily, dry, or combination skin types. 

Almay Smart Shade comes in a round compact that fits easily into a small purse or bag.  The compact opens on both sides.  One side has the powder and the other side has a mirror and brush.  How convenient!

If using a translucent powder that instantly matches your skin’s shade sounds appealing, you may be interested in the Almay Smart Shade Liquid Make-up and Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush to compliment Smart Shade powder.

Smart Shade Liquid Make-up with SPF 15 also makes the task of choosing a shade very simple.  It has the same options that are available in the powder- light, light/medium, or medium.   Smart Shade Blush is available in three basic colors as well: Coral, Nude, or Pink.


If you prefer a little more coverage, then you may want to add Almay Smart Shade Concealer with SPF 15, applied directly after the liquid make-up.  When using the Concealer, don’t be alarmed if it appears white at first.  Smart Shade Concealer goes on white and then adjusts to the perfect shade of your skin.

If your skin color is pale to light – choose Light.  If your skin is olive toned or brown – choose Light/Medium.  If your skin color is dark brown to black – choose Medium.  I use Light and it has worked well for me – through pale winters and tanned summers!
