Customer Reviews

It blends perfectly for subtle natural looking color.
Elisabeth Hinrichs
The consistency of the product is like a heavy liquid foundation, but it blended so well with my skin tone that there was no contrast whatever.
Elizabeth G. Melillo
This blush does not show up well on skin that is darker than fair.

I've always worn my cosmetics very natural, preferring subtlety to ostentation. I usually go for a monochromatic look on my eyes and cheeks, using a bit more color in my lipstick, which changes shades to suit the garment I am wearing. Needless to say, I was intrigued by Almay's Smart Shade Blush. The concept of a blush that is subtle and adjusts to flatter your skin tone was something I couldn't pass up.

This is my first experience with a cream blush, and I have to say I don't think I will try one again. I wasn't fond of the messy application, requiring a trip to the bathroom to wash my hands before continuing (I do my make-up at a vanity table in my bedroom, using a lighted make-up mirror), and I thought the cream blush felt a bit sticky on my skin.

That is, until it wore off. My normal cosmetics routine rarely requires I touch up my make-up throughout the day, with the exception of my lipstick. On a hot summer day, I might powder my face a bit, but it is rare I have to touch up my blush until evening. The Almay Smart Shade Blush wore off very quickly, leaving my cheeks without a rosy pink hue within hours. I should add that I broke myself of the habit of rubbing or touching my face years ago when I realized the act bred pimples, so this was simply normal wear sitting at my desk in my office.

I do have to say, however, that when first applied, the subtlety of color is attractive. But an experienced hand can easily achieve that same look with a powder blush that lasts a bit longer in the day.

Overall, I have to say I would not use this blush again. After a week of wear, the tube lies in my make-up drawer without further use and will likely be the victim of a spring cleaning in a year or so. Someone who is partial to cream blushes may like this one better than I did, and I would recommend they try it. For me, it just didn't meet my needs.

Nope, Almay Smart Shade Blush isn't so smart and it barely changed color for me. When it first comes out of the tube, it does come out white and creamy (almost like a very light moisturizer). As you blend it in, it begins to change color...kind of.

The pink shade barely changed color on my medium/tanned skin. If anything, it actually made my cheeks look a bit pasty. Don't waste your money. I realize that sounds way harsh, so I'll give Almay some credit. There are products from this brand that I actually really like: the Almay 16-Hour Eyeliner and Waterproof One Coat Nourishing Mascara, spring to mind.

The ironically named Smart Shade Blush, however, simply fails to make the grade for me so it's not recommended.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It is a wonderful concept put forward by Almay, with their blush I tried and am now reviewing. The basic thrust of the idea (by the way, this same idea has been attempted before, year after year by other companies. I am aware of that) is that this blush, which I received in a color called "pink rose", is something they call "smart shade" blush. The next line on the package says: "transforms into your ideal blush shade"!

This transformation didn't happen in my case. I was very disappointed as I love makeup!

I understand what Almay is referring to. I have previously owned blush which, upon contact with my skin, adapted as if by magic to the specific skin type I have, only the blush which I purchased before actually accomplished what it set out to do much more effectively that this blush does.

I had two problems in particular with this Almay blush, which, incidentally, was definitely a color I would have chosen for myself if I had just been wandering through a store or seen it on Amazon. I like the look of the color. It is very pretty, a cool, light mauve-y pink. When I opened the tube, I was delighted as it looked like a product by Stila which I already own and use frequently.

The first problem was this. No matter how much I applied to my cheeks, using my fingertips as they instruct on the tube and the package, and then removed, in order RE-apply in different amounts, and then tried to put on again in some sort of different manner, in ever more concerted attempts to get a reaction from this blush, in order to give this product a "fighting chance" at a good review, it just had NO EFFECT upon my skin or my cheeks in any way, or my general "look".

How about this idea: purchase as a "first blush" for your daughter or niece.

I don't use a lot of blush, I prefer a touch of bronzer myself. The exception would be Warmth all-over face color by Bare Minerals, which is the only other thing I can use without feeling like I'm channelling the 80s :-)

I'm afraid of overdoing it, that's why I don't use blush. But I kind of liked the Almay Smart Shade Blush: because it's in cream, it blends well and doesn't leave streaks; plus, it's so versatile: I can keep a tube in my little necessaire that I keep in my bag because it won't make a mess or break like powder products. In a pinch, you could use a little on your eyelids or lips to sort of "freshen up" your look after a long day, and it will look natural.

It looses a star because it's not natural, but I have to admit it didn't bother my sensitive skin AT ALL, which is always a plus and a nice surprise when trying new makeup!

It might be tricky to find the perfect shade, but it's probably worth the effort.
