NEW Almay Best Blend Forever Foundation Makeup Review


This post was sponsored by Almay as part of a sampling activation for Crowdtap. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Almay Best Blend Forever is a lightweight, creamy foundation plus moisturizer in one. It covers imperfections easily and flawlessly with a built-in blending tool that buffs skin to a beautiful finish. Packed with vitamins and SPF 40 to keep your skin hydrated for up to eight hours. 

Key features: 
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • 12 shades

I was really excited to try Almay's Best Blend Forever Makeup. I received two different shades, one being 140 Beige and the other 150 Naked. My spray tan was starting to fade, so I went with 140 Beige, I am sure that if my spray tan was still new, I would have had to use 150 Naked. 

I really like the design of the bottle and how it offers a built-in, removable blending sponge. This makes applying the makeup so much easier and versatile. I tried it both ways, but I personally prefer to use mine separately. I feel like I have more control of the sponge without the bottle being attached to it. The sponge is a bit harder than I would typically want, since mine are usually super soft. However, it works great.  

I tried this foundation both ways; without concealer and with. I find that this product does a lot better with concealer. In my opinion it does not offer full conceal of blemishes, dark spots and so on. It does require concealer for a complete coverage look, but this is something that is typical with the previous foundations I have used. If you prefer to use no concealer you will need a lot of foundation to achieve that “full-coverage” look. 


The Almay's Best Blend Forever foundation does have a sticky feeling to it at first but after it dries it is not sticky at all. It offers a light dewy finish look once it has dried, so I did use some finishing powder. This product did not irritate my skin in anyway. It does offer your skin protection from harmful sun rays, which will be helpful with summer right around the corner. 

My final thoughts are that this is a great product which offers light coverage, and works alongside other products very well to give you full coverage. It also provides a dewy look if this is your preferred look, and protects your skin from the sun. I highly recommend this foundation to people who have dry skin as well.

  1. I haven't used this Almay products but I do like the packaging. I would probably like this because I prefer a lighter foundation and use a concealer as needed. Nice review!
