Makeup that self adjusts to your skin tone? I kinda didn’t believe it at first…

Given the fact that you can’t test foundation inside most drugstores, finding the perfect shade match can be a little tough.  Sure, you can try to go by the little swatch that brands put on their packaging, or by the names like “ivory,” buff” and “mocha,” etc. but there’s no guarantee that it’s actually going to be a match for you, and that’s just super annoying.  I recently tried out ALMAY SMART SHADE MAKEUP and, I have to say, I’m pretty impressed.  Sure, I was 99% sure that the light shade (there are three shades in the line) would work for me, BUT I really like how you can actually watch the product adapt to your skin tone.


You start by simply applying the foundation to your skin, and it starts out super light before you actually rub it into your skin…


You see the color start changing as you apply!  The product features a breakthrough technology from Almay, Tonemimic, that uses shade-sensing bead technology  that intuitively changes to match your skin tone.


The final result!  Again, I’m super impressed.
