In the last few years I, like so many other women, have become a huge fan of mineral makeup. And when women think about mineral makeup, one of the first brands that comes to mind has to be Pur Minerals.
This phenomenal mineral makeup brand is easily one of the best known and its gentle and effective formulas are beloved by women ranging from celebrities to stay-at-home moms. Recently I got the chance to test out the Pur Minerals Start Now Essentials Collection for myself and I couldn’t wait.
I chose the kit in the Blush Medium shade to review. The kit contained 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup, Mineral Glow, Universal Marble Powder and the Chisel Makeup Brush.
Choosing a foundation colour is something that I always find incredibly difficult. Fortunately, Pur Minerals offered a handy shade selection guide that let me select the perfect colour of 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup. I just chose my ethnicity and my skin tone and then found the corresponding shade on the chart. When the kit arrived, I couldn’t wait to see how accurate the recommendation had been.
Without a doubt, Pur Minerals knows how to recommend a foundation! The shade was perfect on my skin and did an amazing job of making my skin tone look even and flawless. Of course, the wonderful thing about mineral makeup is that it blends with your natural skin tone, so it’s quite hard to go wrong. I highly recommend using the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Shade Selection Guide if you are at all uncertain about which shade to pick.
The brush was another big highlight of the kit for me. I usually use a large bronzer brush to apply mineral foundation, but the smaller and stiffer Chisel Makeup Brush was far better for applying the foundation evenly on my skin and getting the proper amount of coverage. I found I needed far less concealer than I usually do after applying the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup with the Chisel Makeup Brush because the coverage was so much better.
The Universal Marble Powder was intriguing to me because it was a universally flattering light blush shade. I loved the blend of colours that combined on the brush, and the hint of rosy colour the powder added to my cheeks was very natural.
The Mineral Glow was a flattering bronzer that was perfect for adding a sun-kissed look to my skin. I especially liked brushing it lightly across my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin to create a natural sun-kissed look.
I enjoyed all of the products in the Pur Minerals Start Now Essentials Collection but my favourite product was definitely the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup and I fully understand why it is the company’s most sought-after product. It is by far the most natural and easiest to apply mineral foundation I have ever used.
If you’re looking for natural, skin-friendly mineral makeup that goes on quickly and easily and lasts all day, check out this great kit for yourself and see why so many women are devoted to Pur Minerals!
