I don't have a whole lot to say about this Almay Smart Shade CC Cream other than it surely is not my color. This is the lightest shade they have for this line and no amount of blending was going to get this to match me for reference I usually wear MUFE #110 pink porcelain for foundation.
Now maybe your wondering what the heck a CC Cream is? Good question let me fill you in. CC stands for Color Correcting and these products are formulated to target redness, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. They are still similar to BB's in the sense that they both can be used to prime, hydrate, protect, and perfect the skin. The difference is that CC's color correct the skin and BB's focus on perfecting the skin with targeted ingredients. CC's provide a more natural coverage to the skin and are sometimes thinner in consistency than BB's but I have found that really vary's by manufacturer.
