Almay sent me a nice apology letter and a coupon good for $10 off any of their products
I bought a tube of Almay Smart Shade Concealer last month. A few days ago, I was using the concealer and I noticed it was all over my hands. I looked at the tube, and the seal on the bottom had come apart on one side. When I squeezed the tube, it was coming out of the top and the bottom. I had no choice but to throw the tube away.
I've never had any makeup product fall apart on me so fast. Concealer isn't cheap and I am frustrated that I wasted money on something I only got to use for a few weeks.
I do plan on contacting Almay to let them know of this defect.

I just emailed the company. I got an email back stating it will take a few days before it gets reviewed. I will post any follow up I get from Almay

Thats a bummer. I hope the company will give you a free product.

Lol BigAl. It seems like the quality of makeup has gone down the past few years. Even the expensive stuff doesn't hold up anymore.

Concealed hands, smudgy toes....be careful with the Nair!

Lex, I threw the concealer out and have bought a different style of tube from a different company. This one won't leak.

That's great little! Almay is a stand up company.
