I would give this a 2.5 but cant. I have combination skin but mostly dry in the massachusetts winters.. I picked this up, plus another lorac foundation at kohls. Both sit funny on my skin. I had read great reviews in this and heard good things but it just does not look good on my skin. I've tried moisturizer, exfoliating, moisturizer, plus a face primer and nothing helps. I thought since this was a 'sheer' foundation it would be, sheer, and have a natural look yet cover some Imperfections. It covers and is not really on the sheer side. The color range is great but I'm one of the few people who has dry skin and problem areas that this seems to accentuate. I've tried a beauty blender, a brush, my fingers, everything...it's just not for me, I guess. Very sad!
