I have not used almays but I love revlon’s primer, I have both the color corrective and the perfecting primer. I use the color corrective more because I have freckles so I have random redness. I recommend that and it is also like 7 bucks.

I have not used Almay but I do recommend Palladio Herbal Primer (at Ulta or Sally) or Hard Candy Primer (at Wal Mart).

I’m not crazy about Almay.  I tried the new Smary Shade makeup and it make me look like and Oompa Loompa.

A while back, Miss (Mrs.?) Rainbow recommended Monistat Chafing Gel as a primer, and said it was very similar to Makeup Forever’s or one of the other high end brands’ primer. I used it on that recommendation and have to say I love it- its smooth, little to no smell, works really well. And cheap. So if you are looking for something new that could be worth a try. 

I also highly recommend a BB cream as a replacement for a primer- I rarely ever use foundation anymore because the BB cream I use (Dr. Jart available at Sephora) works as both primer and tinted moisturizer that gives me enough coverage. But it can also be used as a primer under foundation because it feels very light. I think Garnier just started selling a BB cream at drugstores if you aren’t looking to spend a lot.

I don’t find it smells that bad it smells like foundation IMO! I don’t find it colour corrects all that well but it does brighten your skin.
