I think part of the irony of Almay Smart Shade CC Cream is the fact that the Almay Smart Shade Foundation is more of a CC Cream than this is.
At the moment CC Creams are pretty popular in Korea and we’re seeing some of that in the Western market. Most of these CC Creams in Asia are white, self adjusting formulas with lightweight textures. Remind you of anything? Almay’s Smart Shade Foundation is actually white and self adjusting….
I find it funny that their CC Cream actually doesn’t go the self adjusting root. It’s unusual that their original, old formulated foundation is more a CC Cream than a new product they just launched.
I picked up this Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Palette for Brown Eyes about two hundred years ago…naaa, not that long. But it was late last year when they originally released for Spring 2012.
I just now dug it out of my “to be reviewed” pile after getting curious about the new palettes Almay released for Spring 2013. I figured, “hey, I already have one to try!” so why haul the new ones unless I knew I’d love ‘em!
