LaurEss Report Part 2

Here's part 2 of my LaurEss roadtest. I'm wearing the new Elemental foundation in Soft Gold. It's not as sheer as I thought it would be (I heard that it's supposed to be sheerer than the original formula and less matte). I liked the Elemental - the finish is almost the same as the original formula, though I did notice that I became a wee bit oilier as the day went by. It was nothing a few oil blotting sheets cannot erase, and the Elemental is still superior to many MMU I've tried, but personally, I prefer the original formula as it is more matte (which does not look matte on my oily skin). Overall, though, I would still use this formula - it feels soooo light on the skin, even at the end of the day when natural oils would have mixed with the makeup. Coverage is very buildable, finish is flawless, slip is great and texture is ultra-velvety.
