Product Review: Pur Minerals Makeup

purminerals_01.jpgMakeup that has natural ingredients is very important to me. Especially if you're wearing it all day. I don't mind putting on the heavier stuff at night, but for day to day purposes I choose mineral makeup. It's better for the skin and better for the environment anyways. Recently, I tried the Pur Minerals Starter Kit. I usually wore Bare Minerals in the morning, but wanted to switch it up a bit and I'm glad I did.

Pur Minerals provides really good coverage. I was very surprised by this because I've noticed that other mineral makeup brands go on lighter and don't cover imperfections very well. I didn't need to worry about that with Pur Minerals. The most surprising thing about the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation is how nicely it covers my dark under eyes! No other mineral makeup brand has done that. I have very dark circles and the foundation when using the chisel brush made the darkness underneath my eyes disappear. And the great thing about it is that it lasts much longer than any cream concealer does. Cream concealers give a lot of coverage, but tend to settle down into creases and fine lines around the eye. After some time they melt off from your body's heat and totally disappear all together. Because the foundation is a powder it doesn't settle in the creases and doesn't melt off, making it last longer.

The other great thing about the starter kit is the amount of time it takes to apply the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation, the Mineral Glow, and the Universal Marble Powder in Pink. I've noticed that products like Bare Minerals saves me a lot of time in the morning, but Pur Minerals literally took me two minutes! I have to admit that I'm a perfectionist and end up spending too much time on applying makeup. Sometimes, it takes me as long as an hour for a party night! But in the morning I'm usually rushing to get out the door and having a fully made-up face in 2 minutes is perfect for me.

Last but not least, Pur Minerals contains natural ingredients and has an SPF of 15 so you get great day to day protection. It also comes with a sponge applicator so you can take it with you for touch ups without the hassles and mess of a loose mineral powder. I'm really impressed with the starter kit and ready to try some of their other products such as their lipsticks and their eye shadows.
