...Almay's new foundation??? I saw a commercial for it on TV last night and I love all of Almay's makeup....I can't remember what it is called exactly ..sheer something but you just touch a pad that has the makeup on it. Supposed to be really natural. I'm gonna try it!!

I saw that this morning..hmmm, it looks really convenient, I don't know if I would like the sponge concept of it though (that is what it looks *like), I've had sponges with my cream makeup that have gotten quite nasty!! *wrinkling nose*

Oh, it's great!! Goes on so light and smooth. Very sheer coverage. You touch a spongy pad that is soaked with the foundation. Put as much or as little as you want on your fingertips. Then apply it just where you want it on your face. It's awesome.

Ive never used Foundation! I have bottle, jus in case I get BRAVE enough to use it. I jus use my face powder first thing in the morning... Hum... I never knew how to use foundation! Plus - USE YER FINGERS!!! Does anyone NOT KNOW ME?!?!?! If I get anything smelly, scented, colored on my hands... I will wash them till there is NO SKIN LEFT! I have this weird compulsion with my hands. They cant feel greesy or have ANY scent to it! I did foundation ONCE and it was all in those little lines on my hands... I AMOST THRREW UP! (ok dang it.. now yall jus found out how weird I am...)

I don't like covering my whole face with foundation (although I used to). Now I just use a Lancome concealer where I need it or this new Almay foundation where I need it. It definately feels greasy on the fingertips so I'd stay away if I were you :) Oh and I wash my hands about 15 times a day so you're not alone. You should see me when I'm putting on makeup or cooking. No wonder they're so dry...

COOL!!!! I'm so glad you posted!! I'm definitely going to get it. I only use foundation on my nose and a lil on my cheeks to even my skin tone and that's it. I too hate the way it feels all over my face. This sounds exactly like what I look for in a base makeup! If anyone comes across coupons lemme know where!!!

Stressie, you sound like my son! He is a FANATIC about washing his hands....usually walks around with his hands up like he's about to perform surgery...!!! LOL!

Hi! I've been lurking for a while now but thought I'd come out and say that I am currently using this product. At first I wasn't sure of it because you have to put it on with your fingers and the coverage is very light, but I'm getting used to it and if you only need a light coverage, it's great. It blends in with my skin tone, but doesn't feel like a "mask". Very natural looking.
