I prefer this over the Almost Makeup. I could never get a shade light enough for me in the almost Makeup, that was problem number 1. Problem number 2 was that the Almost Makeup made me feel greasy throughout the day and felt heavy, almost mask-like. I also was never really impressed with the coverage.
The Moisture Surge TM has better coverage I think, and it's buildable if you need more coverage in a certain area...I can almost get the same results using this as I do with my Even Better foundation. And it feels so much lighter, it's truly impressive. I can't say enough good things!
The two formulas are very different. Almost makeup was more creamy and more pigmented, it felt thicker, and heavier. Moisture Surge TM feels more like a gel, like the actual moisture surge moisturizer, but more fluid, it is very light feeling and gives build-able sheer coverage. The Moisture surge TM costs a few dollars more, and the packaging is smaller, but the product can be used sparingly and is very flattering, also it does not leave your skin looking "shiny," so that if you don't want to set it with a powder you don't have to. It feels very nice. I live in the new england area where it is still cold and windy and just switched from almost makeup four days ago and the improvement is phenomenal. No more dry, windburnt cheeks!
