My experience with Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush:-

As you can see in the picture above.Blush has these cute polka dots on it of different shades and blush actually brightens up the complexion and give that natural looking flush.Intially when i used it i found it little powdery but after one or two usage it blends out beautifully.I need to apply it 2-3 time to build up the pigmentation but those who have lighter complexion than me (I am NC 42) can carry it beautifully.It’s an every day blush which is going to look different on all skin tone and wont’ be visible on darker skin tone.

Staying power of the blush is not that spectacular and it fades away after 2-3 hours and it’s little drying  so oily skin beauties are going to love this shade more.


Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush Swatch:-

It’s a pretty peachy coral and very smooth but I do see that blush is getting little harder with time .As much as I love the shade I do admit that formula of the blush is nothing great.It lacks the smoothness and hydration which most skin need to blend it out.

This is how it looks on me.I am wearing Amway Kajal  and Bourjois Rouge Edition 05 Brun Boheme Lipstick . As i said its not that visible on my skin tone and i have to build up the pigmentation to get the natural peachy coral flush.
