Does what it says, great stuff!
First time ordering any makeup online and I feel that I’ve hit the jackpot with this product. It’s been a while since I purchased or worn foundation and I was lucky that my choice of color, Beige, exactly matched my skin tone 100%. A true neutral and natural looking shade for sure. Coverage is medium and it stays on my skin very well through the day. I can rub my face with a finger or use a tissue for my nose and don’t encounter any rub off color. I also haven’t experienced any settling in lines or gloppyness on blemishes. This doesn’t break out my combination skin and comes off easily enough when I use a makeup removing wipe or cream cleanser at the end of the day. I love how it improves the appearance of my skin with a natural, not “made up” look. Best of all I love the product’s tube with attached application sponge. The tube is a pliable plastic that easily squeezes the product up through the hole in the attached application sponge. I get great application with the sponge, it blends the product into my skin very well and ALL over my face easier than any other foundation I’ve tried before. I like that the bottle is the handle for the sponge and I don’t get hand cramps applying my makeup like I did using a separate sponge in the past. The sponge is attached so I don’t see myself washing it, which is fine since I’m always applying to a freshly cleaned face, AND there is a tight cap that goes over the sponge for storage. I also like that the product stands on that lid so the foundation is always primed and ready to use, a great and convenient design. I’m not one to spend a great deal of time or effort on applying makeup so this is a perfect product for me, so quick, easy and effortless to get a nice natural look and improved skin tone for daytime. I recommend this item 100%
Good coverage and SPF included
I like convenience when it comes to make up and I like to try things that are designed to save me time in my morning routine. Best Blend Forever makeup foundation is one of the products that does just that. First it has SPF 40 which is a great plus as it cuts down on the number of products you need to use. The applicator is built in and it takes some getting used to. The sponge screws on the top of the bottle and you dispense the foundation by squeezing the tube. You have to be patient first time you use it as it has to prime a little but with daily usage it only takes a gentle squeeze to get enough for full face coverage. The applicator glides over skin easily and adjusts to facial contours. The foundation goes on smoothly and it blends well. I had no problem having it stay on all day without smudging or becoming shiny as the day went by. It is easy to take off with makeup removing wipes or your favorite facial cleaner. I did not find that it clogged my pores and it felt very light and breathable while providing good coverage.
Best blend forever
The quality of this product is great I love the sponge applicator. The applicator is attached to the bottle so you squeeze the makeup out and it is already right on the sponge. It eliminated having to use a blender or something else to apply the makeup to your face.
Excellent product for Sensitive skin
I love this foundation, I normally do not wear foundation because I have a condition called tenia versicolor which makes my skin very sensitive. Especially to the sun, this foundation comes with spf 40. It also is hypo-allergenic. It applies very smooth, I took the sponge applicator off and applied with my fingertip just spotting. Then I smoothed it in evenly with the applicator. This foundation leaves my face so natural looking with a glow. I basically apply it very sheer. So far my skin has not been irritated so I am estastic. Also it is 1 fluid oz. so this will last for sometime. I did want to mention the sponge applicator is a little hard, but I am sure it will soften with time. I used the color cappuccino which blended great with my complextion. I have pretty nice skin, this foundation gave me a nice glow. Thanks Walmart spark review for giving me this opportunity.
I waited more than two weeks to write a review on this make up just so I would be sure that it does not have an adverse reaction to my skin; firstly, I worn it for eight hours during work; with am little help of finishing powder the Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup stayed in place, and was easily removed at night with oil; The Caramel color is a little darker than I expected, but it blended nicely with my tan. The one thing that I like the most about this make up is the applicator; it slides softly through the skin and it feels as if one is not wearing foundation at all.
I received this product from the Spark Reviewer program. When I received Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup, Buff in color; I was hesitant at first but when I applied it. It went on smooth and wasn't really thick like other foundations. It has a handy blending sponge attached which is really nice. it doesn't spill or leak. It covered the redness on my face real easy without applying a ton of product. I will be buying more.
I love Almay for my skin...
I received the Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup, Porcelain 1.0 fl oz, free in exchange for my review as part of the Spark Review Program. My skin is prone to acne--it has been since junior high school. Now in my forties, I still break out due to hormone changes, stress, bad luck, you name it. Almay is a brand that I know will not cause my skin to break out. This Best Blend make up has its own sponge applicator which is so convenient. I can swipe it broadly over my face or more narrowly under my eyes to blend away dark circles. The Porcelain color looks nice with my complexion during the winter, and I could probably go even lighter under my eyes. Overall, this is an easy to use foundation. It would be the kind of make up you would want your daughter to use when you introduce her to make up--it is almost mistake proof.
Clean fresh coverage
The Almay Best Blend is great light coverage that is not heavy or greasy. I do like that the sponge applicator makes it much easier for controlling coverage. I was able to put light in some areas and heavier in others and it dried quickly. I thought it looked more like a matte finish so there is not a lot of shine and is a very clean coverage.
Almost, but not quite...
I have very dark skin and always have trouble finding the right tone in foundation. As a result, I rarely wear makeup. But I thought I'd give this a try. The sponge applicator took some getting used to, but it became easier after a few false starts.
The color actually blended better than I expected. It wasn't a perfect match, so I will most likely have to add to it if I decide to wear it out. I like that it didn't feel heavy or thick on my skin.
Great Idea but Not to my Expectations
I received this product for free in order to leave my honest review. I was so excited to give this product a try. I felt that it would help me get ready just a tad bit quicker in the mornings. This makeup comes with a spongelike tip that has a hole in the center where the makeup comes out. It’s a great idea in theory, but the sponge absorbed most of all the makeup & did not apply hardly any at all to my skin. I felt like I had to use more than usual just to get it to cover my skin evenly. The color itself was great & was to my expectations. I like how easily it fits into any makeup bag or purse. I also like how I get about the same amount of makeup that I generally get from other brands. Overall, I would recommend this product, but perhaps instead of using it to apply first thing in the morning, maybe keep it in a purse for “touch ups” throughout the day. I feel like you would have to use more than necessary just to get the full coverage you would need. I hope this review helps others.
Makeup is Great..Applicator Not So Much
My review of this makeup will be in two parts. First, the makeup itself: Very nice. Smoothe, creamy, nice texture. This has really nice coverage, dries quickly and blends very well. Almay has the makeup end of this product down pat. No streaks, no unevenness in color. I was impressed with the fact that the makeup does not dry out my skin. I have average oiliness in my skin but most foundations tend to dry me out. This one did not nor did it cause me to get excessively oily either. The color was a little off but that's to be expected to choose from a photo and not holding the actual product. I'm positive I would get a good match in the store.
The applicator: This where I have a HUGE bone to pick with Almay. In the beginning, the applicator worked beautifully. It blended cleanly and evenly. The sponge tip held just enough makeup to produce a very nice finish...no clumping or thick spots. After3 or 4 uses, I cleaned the sponge tip. I know that applicators can pick up germs and bacteria on the skin surface and hold them and then spread them again in a subsequent application. Working in a hospital ICU I tend to pick up bacteria so I wanted to keep the tip clean and prevent breakouts. I cleaned the tip in hot water, rinsed it well and let it air dry for several hours. The applicator tip developed a noxious odor and no matter how long I kept it exposed to the air or how dry it became it continued to smell. I have since discarded the makeup. I'm sorry to see it go because I really liked the product. Almay needs to come up with an applicator that can be cleaned with simple water or soap and water and not smell.
I have this make up in two different colors: cappuccino and caramel; I found that the colors run darker than expected, but still the foundation gives me a nice coverage. I waited more than two weeks to write a review on this make up just so I would be sure that it does not have an adverse reaction to my skin; firstly, I worn it for eight hours during work; with am little help of finishing powder the Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup stayed in place, and was easily removed at night with oil; The Caramel color and the cappuccino color are a little darker than I anticipated, but it blended nicely with my tan. The one thing that I like the most about this make up is the applicator; it slides softly through the skin and it feels as if one is not wearing foundation at all.
One stop makeup application!
Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup, Caramel
(received from Spark Review Program)
For this promotion, I tried #190/Caramel color.
I like it!
The application tip is a sponge at the base of the squeeze tube. As you press the tube, makeup comes through a small pinch-hole in the sponge.
Then you take the tube (with sponge tip) and blend the makeup on your face.
Nice idea. There is no need to use your fingers to smooth the makeup. The sponge does a good job of this.
One thing I did notice is – the sponge is spongey. It will suck up your makeup quickly.
For the second time I used this application, I noticed I used a bit more than the first time to make sure it gets on my face and not in the sponge.
The sponge is covered with a plastic cover for protection.
I like the color of the makeup – it blends well and I like the idea of the sponge/makeup in one application.
I would buy this item!
I also recommend for purchase.
What I love about this foundation? The application method, it's
super easy it has a sponge at the end and you simply squeeze
the foundation out so no mess. It's easily removed to wash and set to dry
so that is great for later. It blends really well, it's not oily so even
though it's smooth it drys almost like pancake ALMOST.
It sets and lasts for a few good hours, blends well in sunlight.
The only thing I wish is that is provided more coverage. It will
cover well but it's not complete coverage I can still see my freckles.
If your looking for complete coverage this may not be for you but
if light and airy is your thing like me it's just right.
Blends well and is close to my natural skin tone
After using Almay Best Blend Forever (Almay BBF) for a couple of weeks, I am satisfied with how it works covering a few minor age spots on my face. Please see the picture attached for how Almay BBF covered my largest age spot.
Almay BBF foundation comes with a sponge applicator at the top; which, makes application easy. The "true beige" color matches my skin-tone well. I would select Beige with other foundations that I have purchased in the past, and this true beige foundation does not disappoint. My face feels moisturized but this foundation does not cake on my skin, and has a natural apperance.
After application, I found it is easy to touch-up and reapply later in the evening. There is a nice glow as you can see in the picture attached, but the foundation is not shiny, wet, or oily looking. And, this foundation has SPF 40, which is a great benefit from shielding harmful effects of the sun from my face.
The one thing that could be improved on is the transfer onto clothing issue, but I've learned to be careful when removing work to casual clothing. This minor set-back is not enough for a decrease in a star in my opinion. I am making the switch to this foundation, because it works well with my skin.
Great Skin tone Match
I received the Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup, Cappuccino 1.0 fl oz and I like it. This liquid makeup blended well with my skin. I wasn’t sure about the color matching because you can never really tell unless you actually try it on. The package is pretty smart it has a sponge that come with it and is detachable from the bottle which is squeezable. The package instructions say that you can squeeze out the make up on the sponge and start blending or you can remove the sponge and directly squeeze the make on it. I tried it both ways and I didn’t really like either method. I use my own method of applying it with my foundation brush. This liquid makeup is more for light coverage, if you’re going for a natural look. I think it’s a great feature of having 40 spf in it which will be great for summer use. That was the smartest thing Almay did, you don’t have to worry about applying sun block before, do it all in one step. The price is a little more than other liquid makeup, but when you find something that matches your skin perfectly its well worth the price.
Good coverage with a natural look!
I received this product as a review item, and I am so glad I did... Great foundation! Actually, it's the best I have used in about 8 years. I chose Sand Beige, and the shade is natural, yet blends evenly. It also covers really well. I think the last really natural foundation I used was also Almay.
What amazed me was that it does not feel heavy, even though the coverage is excellent.
The SPF is 40, and is broad spectrum. This is very important to me,, because I have been treated for sun damage on my skin. and I need the broad spectrum protection. It's nice to have it built into to my foundation.
I was a bit concerned about the built in sponge being used repeatedly, so i decided to use my own disposable sponges. But for a more active person, I can see the the onboard sponge makes good sense. The sponge is of a very high quality cosmetic sponge. It's a nice option to use my own sponge or the one which is attached. And I love the finished look I get, even without a setting powder! I simply cannot perceive how such a covering product is so light and comfortable to wear. There are many color choices, too! It was easy to match my skintone
My skin felt so soft, even after I removed the foundation, and this is something I always look for. To me, that's the difference between a fabulous product and an inferior one. Once again, Almay does not disappoint!
I recommend this foundation to anyone who wants good coverage. I think it's suitable for younger skin as well as mature skin. I think it's a "step-saving" product that gives me the best of both worlds... convenience, and a great look.
Smoothe light feeling coverage
Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup, Caramel 1.0 fl oz.
I like this makeup because of the way it feels, it is very light feeling on your skin, it also moisturizes as you apply without being greasy feeling. It blends in really well, you get a very nice smoothe coverage. The applicator is easy to use and is very soft to your skin. I like that this makeup is hypoallergenic, has spf40 and says it is fragrance free. It is not really fragrance free but it has a very light and pleasant smell. As for the spf40 it is not water proof and the label suggests that you reapply every 2 hours to continue the protection. I received the 190 caramel color but it is too dark for me I am very light skinned and this color is maybe for medium tanned skin. Caramel is a true description of the color.
Great overall foundation!
I never have much luck with foundations. They're always the wrong color, don't blend well, or don't sink into the skin. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It's pretty good! It comes with its own applicator attached so there is no searching for a sponge which is nice. I dotted it onto my skin and blended it and it matched nicely. It also looks pretty natural. I set it with some powder and it looked great. It isn't oily or drying to the skin and it really smells nice. Overall I am satisfies with this foundation and would recommend it to others. Oh, and it didn't feel like it was weighing down my skin and wasn't hard to remove with a towelette. Good coverage, happy customer!
I received the Almay foundation through the spark program. I like the sponge applicator that is attached with the foundation. It makes it easier to apply without having to use a separate sponge or brush. I like how the sponge part can be easily cleaned after using it, cause it has twist off cap. "Big Plus" :) The only drawback I had was the dispensing of foundation. It can easily squirt out if not careful. All in all this product makes life much easier on blending the foundation with no worries. So innovative. It also has SPF40 too.
