2 stars for how easy it is to apply and for how amazing it looks when it initially goes on. Unfortunately, after a few hours it looks awful on me. Ironically, it looks the best on the places of my skin that are actually the oiliest (my cheeks and T zone); however on my upper lip, chin, and sides of my face it looks chalky, uneven, and dry. It also settles into my laugh lines and the creases under my eyes (no matter how many times I try to blend it out with my finger too). I've tried using a primer, a moisturizer, and even aloe vera underneath this makeup and nothing seems to make it look better. The finishing powder that I was using on top of this makeup would not absorb (unlike with my other foundations) and made me look stark white (I'm medium brown in color) so I stopped using it but still ended up looking chalky when I looked closely in the mirror. Pretty disappointing for the first Loreal foundation I have ever tried. Will be returning this makeup tomorrow after trying it out for a week.
