Laura Geller Skin Elements Liquid Veil Foundation SPF 25 w/Brush
I wanted light coverage, this fits the bill. I am in my mid sixties w/good skin. Heavier makeups accentuate fine lines, this does not, a more natural look. I have used the balance N brighten products for many years, still love.. elements is nice change w/the corrector. thanks Laura
Not For Me
I used Phenomenal Foundation by LG and LOVED it. Could not get it so I tried her Take Cover and it was not as good now I tried this and it's the worst of the 3. Kind of sticky, does not spread very well for me and I don't like the shade. I have light skin, but it's more neutral or cool. It's going back.
Colors are wayyyy off
I saw the on-air presentation and went to to check out the ingredient list and was very happy to see no cyclopentasiloxane (silicone) as it seems to be in every foundation made these days and clogs me up every single time I use it. Also not on the ingredient list is octisalate (spf) which burns my face horribly. To find a product with neither of these ingredients was a miracle for me. I ordered the porcelain and light and was shocked to see how dark they were, these colors run very, very dark. The porcelain is more of a medium and the light was way darker than that. I actually ordered another porcelain thinking it had to be a bad batch but the same color arrived. I have resorted to using the porcelain mixed with my moisturizer in my palm to lighten the color, this is a pretty big hassle every morning, make too little and you dont have enough to finish your face, make too much and I'm rinsing it down the drain. I rated it a five because I love the ingredient list and the consistency but having to lighten it up is a pain. Please Laura fix the colors for us fair skin gals and you would have a game-changer!
This may be a great foundation, but my pink-toned skin looks jaundiced when I apply it. I am fair, but not really the palest of pale, and have such a time trying to find any foundation that is not a yellow base. Wish I had returned this instead of trying to make it look decent. Somewhere, someone MUST make a foundation that is good for skin tones such as mine. I don't need to look tanned, even in summertime, as I do get a bit of color just from the season, even though I'm careful with hats, sunblock etc. A bronzed face just isn't me, and this looks really orangeish on my skin.
I do love Laura Geller products, and totally enjoy her on-air personality, but this is just not right for me.
Better Than Anticipated!
I have used Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation for three years and their Mineral Powder for as many prior. The powder is custom blended. I was near to ordering another when I saw the Laura Geller presentation. It sounded wonderful, in fact, maybe too, but I couldn't resist trying the product.
I was delighted from the first use and am absolutely amazed with the coverage provided with such a light feeling product. I live in Phoenix, Arizona and heavy face make up is not only ridiculous in this heat, but just not our style.
Thank you, Laura Geller, for offering this opportunity to us!
Perfect product for me and I have tried them all!
This is a light to medium coverage that goes on smoothly and feels divine. It covers my spots but use the concealer for the darkest spots. I have dehydrated skin 60+ year old skin that hates BB and CC creams because they either cause my skin to turn red, get hives or just bead up and sit there. This one blends in and it takes patience to apply but so what? I am worth it. It does not enhance the fine lines and wrinkles or sits and enhances them like other products. I love the SPF 25 because I live in hot, humid Florida. It does not disappear or run in the heat. This is definitely the one for me. Is it available on auto delivery?
A bit disappointed
I use the Anti- Aging Liquid foundation by Laura Geller and love it. I thought I would like this too. But the coverage isn't very good and it don't like the texture. I won't reorder.
Just didn't work at all for me
I have several Laura Gellar products that I just love, use everyday and would not want to ever be without so I had high hopes for this foundation. It just did not work at all for me. It didn't blend well, was sort of sticky and felt like it just sat and streaked on my face. I was hoping for light summer liquid foundation when I was looking for more than my baked foundation but this just isn't what I was looking for. Do not really recommend it.
I like the product
I don't quite understand the low reviews. The product has a light to med coverage , it is not yellow. I am neutrel toned, it has a slight color for the light. It goes on smooth for me and I have dry skin . The brush is very good ,and works with application better than fingers.
I Love this!! I normally stay away from liquid foundation, because they tend to feel heavy or greasy and I just don't like the way it looks on my skin tone. Based on the demonstration I decided to order because it didn't have the look of liquid foundation. I use Laura's balance and brighten which I love so I figured I could always go back to that if this didn't work out. The best thing about this foundation is that the coverage is minimal which I like. I have pretty decent skin so I don't like the look of heavy make up and this is perfect. My skin feels so good and the make up lasts all day. I moisturize and then apply spackle before using this and the results are wonderful. It's a keeper!!
Light and Beautiful
Laura you have done an awesome job with this foundation. I love that it is not greasy and it goes on flawlessly. It is easy to apply with or without a brush. I feel that your brush could have been a little fuller but it is besides the point cause the product is very nice. I will not be without it. Thanks again and please make it in a bigger size. PLEASE SUPERSIZE THIS ONE!!!!
Use this every day and I adore it. It can go from light to medium coverage with a tad more product. All my other foundations are gathering dust this summer. Found exactly what I needed for natural beautiful coverage.
