Makeup For Hyperpigmentation: Almay

Recommended Posts

HI YOU GUYS! So my skin is pimple free, i only have about three tiny pimples right now. But I still have the hyperpigmentation spots left....and i have A LOT of those. So i was wondering, can I use the Almay concealer to cover them up? Will it work without breaking me out? THANKS SO MUCH LOVE YOU

everyone reacts diff to everything- no one can answer it but yourself :) Also a product may say acne-free or noncomedogenic (these two words are not regulated by the food/drug act- so any company can state this on their product purely for marketing purposes.)

So like i said- no one on here can tell you how this product will correlate with your particular skin- only you can know.

Good luck!

I also have hyper pigmentation spots that I hate. I use green concealer. Green concealer helps cancel out redness. You just have to put skin colored concealer over it. I use Physician's Formula Concealer twins (this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Physicians-Formula-Concealer-Twins-Green-Light-3055/10412927), which has a green and a skin-colored concealer connected in a tube. I like the green concealer, but the skin-colored one is pretty greasy and makes my pimples bigger. I use MAC concealer to cover the green concealer instead. Though, if I knew that there were green concealers in powder form when I looked for some, I would get that instead of the liquid kind.

Oh I see...so does the Green Concealer break you out?? And also, Dan said that the Almay one works better so have you tried it before?Thanks!

I don't think that it makes me break out, it seems to be good. I haven't tried Almay, but from what I hear, it sounds pretty good.

I love Almay. If you just have a few spots you want to conceal, try the Smart Shade Concealer. The only drawback with Almay though is that they don't really have shades for darker skin tones.

My daughter uses Almay products and they cover up her marks really well and have never made her break out. But as a previous poster said what works for one person may not work for another (frustrating I know!). Good luck.
