Almay describes this foundation--"tlc truly lasting color™ makeup with SPF 15 delivers up to 16 hours of flawless coverage that won't rub off—even in heat and humidity. Plus, it nourishes your skin with a blend of green tea to protect, vitamin E to help smooth, and lemon extract to brighten...for all day, natural radiance. "
I have been using this foundation for a couple weeks now and I really like it.  First of all, it comes with a pump! It's so much easier to get the product out and much more sanitary. Also, it blends so much better with my consealer. I first tried my Bee Luscious Consealer with ColorStay and it was terrible! Then I tried with Almay's TLC and it was great! TLC also contains green tea, vitamin E, and lemon extract, which are fantastic for your complexion!   
 Other things I love about TLC, it feels like nothing on my face! I have used my beauty blender and different Sigma brushes to apply this and everytime I walk away with flawless skin! Also, it has a nice range of colors, but not if you have very dark skin--most drugstore companies seem to need to work on that. This makeup really doesn't budge, so you really need to make you use a good makeup remover!

One thing some people may not like is that there aren't as many color selections as some other brands. There also aren't different formulas for dry and oily skin. I have pretty dry skin and this works well for me. I'd be interested in hearing how it works for you with oily skin, so please comment.

Here's my color:

I'm pretty pale and unfortunately the color selection for Almay did not work for me. Their lightest was too light and the next step up was too dark so hence my face had that dirty obviously wearing makeup sort of look. the price is great though and the feel is nice and not oily so it's a pity. i prefer estee lauder or bare escentuals!
