Elemental #2 is a light mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It appeared slightly darker in hue when applied to my skin and also read slightly cooler-toned to my eye in practice. The texture was finely-milled, smooth to the touch without being powdery. It actually performed better than I anticipated based on how light it looked in the pan--I anticipated a drier, more powdery formula. It wore well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.
