Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush for Spring 2013

Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush
is newly launched for Spring 2013. Although Almay already has a Smart Blush available it’s a cream formula not a powder one so those who prefer powder will want to check these out.

Take a look!

They remind me of Almay’s Smart Shade Pressed Powder a fair bit. Each is $8.69 (at Harmons) and 0.24 oz in size. They supposedly have a self adjusting formula which adjusts to your skin tone and gives you the perfect “you” shade of blush!


  • Nude
  • Coral
  • Pink

Coral and Pink are the blush shade where as Nude seems like more of a bronzer color to me. I haven’t tried them yet but I’m quite excited to do so considering how well I liked the pressed powder formula. I’m not sure if I buy into the perfect shade of self adjusting blush as its been done and redone without much success. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t love these….! We’ll see how it goes.

I can’t wait to try them. They look quite interesting to say the least.

I located them at Harmons but CVS, Walgreens, etc…should get them soonish as well I imagine.

Whatcha think?

Anyone see them in their area?

Want to try them?

Do share!

    I LOVE how much the Smart Shade pressed powder brightens my face, so I can NOT wait to get my hands on the pink blush and see how it works. I’m really hoping it brightens and adds a glow!

    Such an adorable design. I wonder if the design goes through the powder or just on the top?


    • 12/5/12 22:36 Tinkibell:

      It should go all the way through the powder. I use the Smart Shade pressed powder and have hit pan on a bunch of them and the design goes right through to the end.
