    "Buff" is a great golden fair shade, it's great for neutralizing redness in my face, and it's one of the very few yellow fair shades available in the drugstore, so I am very grateful for it! . The texture of this does irk me a bit...it feels so sticky and glue like, and takes some time to blend, but the end result is so natural looking and it feels so light on my face, I can overlook the initial stickiness. This foundation can give anywhere from light-full coverage, depending on how it's applied, so I like it's versatility. The finish is natural matte, but not drying, and works well in both winter and summer (and I have combo oily/dry skin). The thing that makes this a winner though, is the fact that it has a physical SPF15, since SPF is important to me but chemical SPFs totally break me out. Also, the pump is so convenient and sanitary. Great foundation! !

    I have used many Almay products over the years and liked them very much, but I was very disappointed in this product. For a liquid foundation, it is very heavy and difficult to apply either with or without a moisturizer. I am used to applying foundation with moistened fingers, but that only causes this product to be more difficult to apply. As another reviewer said, it is hard to remove it, so I guess that's why they claim it has such staying power, but I'm not happy with it and am returning it tomorrow.

          Dries immediately and it's really difficult to apply. It ends up looking streaky and cakey.

                I switched over from using a Cover Girl foundation to Almay TLC because I needed a foundation that was yellow based. I'm Asian and Almay TLC Sand suites my skin the most.

                Even though this foundation is a bit thick, it wont "cake" when you're applying it. I use my fingers and dot the foundation on the areas I want it to cover, then blend it in with a latex sponge.

                When I use this product with concealer and face powder, it gives a flawless natural look. The skin is very even and smooth.

                The only negative thing about it is the fact that it is hard to take off. At the end of the day, I wash my face with an exfoliator. If the foundation is not properly washed off, it can feel rather oily.

                Other then that little negative, I love Almay TLC and I wont be switching for a very long time!

                Like most women I don't have time to fuss with my makeup every hour. This goes on smooth, looks like my skin - only better, and lasts all day. I've tried almost every foundation out there drugstore to department store and I think this is the best all around.

                Application - use it sparingly, 3-4 pumps gives me plenty of coverage (and I need a lot!) without being heavy or sticky. I use it straight out of the bottle and apply with a good makeup sponge. You do need to work quickly to blend before it sets.

                I love that my face looks fresh all day - if you want a dewy look don't add powder. If you like more of a matte finish (like me) use the Almay almost naked face powder.

                Once your day is over - It comes off easily with a good cleanser.

                For me this is fabulous, I've worn this particular foundation for over 10 years...if it didn't make me look good, I'd be wearing something else.

                  I have been using this product for years!!! It was changed up a couple years back and renamed, but it's still the awesome product it was with a few improvements. This make up goes on easily with fingertips or a cosmetic wedge. It's not heavy and I don't think it smells like some have said here. I love that it keeps my T-Zone from getting oily yet it feels like I'm not wearing any makeup at all. As far as the complaints of hard to get off, I don't have that problem at all. I use make-up remover facial cleansing cloths to take mine off and it's a breeze. Walmart brand works great! My daughters both use it and they don't get blemishes because they wear it. And it keeps my skin looking younger.There is noting on the market that compares!

                  As a previous reviewer wrote, this is one of the few yellow-toned drugstore foundations. Great for neutralizing redness.

                  As for the reviwes about the sticky texture and the difficulty in application, here is how I use it:

                  I mix it 50-50 with Shiseido SPF60 (I mix it very well on the back of my hand). This lightens the color, so I buy a shade darker than I need. This also thins out the coverage, but this is a good thing because it takes on the dewy look of a tinted moisturizer.

                  Best of all, it still maintains most of the pros: transfer-resistant, humidity-and sweat-resistant.

                  Also - when I wear the foundation, I definitely notice that I'm about 30% less greasy during the day. I think the ingredients help soak up some oil.

                  I would never wear this foundation straight from the pump. But mixed with the sunscreen, I've worn this combo for at least 5 years now. And I never break out, or get itchy or anything.

                  The reason I tried the product to start with is b/c It said it was hypo-allergenic and my skin is allergic to almost everythng. well so does Mary Kay. But With this one I don't itch and it doesn't dry my skin out the way Mary Kay does. Almay Products has been the only thing that I can use. I work as a CNA in A nursing home and from the time I walk in until time to go home I continue to have to run around. And all other brands make me look like my face is melting away witthin an hour or two but this actually last through my 12 hour shifts. way to go Almay.
