I had never tried Pur Mineral’s Makeup prior to receiving it to review so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. I love mineral makeup and have tried several other brands to no avail. The problems I seem to keep running into are that the product is either A. Way too Expensive or B. Leaves my skin feeling dry neither of which are problems I can easily look past to convince me to purchase a brand again. For my review I was sent the Pur Mineral’s Start Now! kit which included:
4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup
I was quite surprised at the ample sizing in the Start Now kit, I’ve received Starter Kits before as gifts and have come to realize that none usually provide enough product to get a good “feel” for the product. I generally have to use a product for several weeks before I decide if I like it or not and Pur Mineral’s Start Now Kit’s products are generous, so much so that I’ve been using my kit for about 3 weeks now and I still have plenty of product left. Hooray! I love that the kit includes a Chisel Brush too, I’ve always wanted one for mineral makeup but never seem to be able to find one in my price range. This is a really nice brush too, I’ve not had one “shedding” incident with the bristles.
This review is centered around the new 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup but I just have to share with you how well the other products that I received in the Start Now! kit work. The Mineral Glow is a product I wasn’t quite sure about when I opened my kit. I chose the kit in the Light color because well I’m a pale pale girl. When I popped open the box I noticed that the Mineral Glow was pretty dark, I was worried that this might create a fake look to my complexion but figured I would try it out anyways to get the full effect. I was quite impressed after applying the Mineral Glow just how well it blended in with the foundation and created well, a nice glow to my complexion. It doesn’t look fake at all, the Mineral Glow gave my skin a sort of sun kissed look that is hard to achieve when I spend countless hours indoors. I feel that the Mineral Glow really accentuates the 4-in-1 and paired I have a beautiful natural looking flawless canvas. This was quite a lesson for me in trying new things and I’m pretty sure now that I never want to be without a bronzer or Mineral Glow again. Thank you Pur Mineral’s!
The last product that I received in the Start Now! kit was the Impact+ Mascara. I am quite a skeptic when it comes to mascara (or really many beauty products if you can tell). Don’t get me wrong my look always “includes” mascara I have just never found a brand I’ve been overly impressed with. I will give Pur Mineral’s props though, they do mascara very well and this mascara, this impressed me. This is a rather non-frills mascara. No fancy brush, no crazy claims about MAX eyelashes. Just good wholesome mascara. And the verdict, it works! The Impact+ Mascara is very easy to apply, it doesn’t clump, and one swipe over each eyelash and I was good to go. One of my pet peeves with mascara is that during the day it usually flakes causing my eyes to become incredibly irritated. The Impact+ Mascara lived up to the high standards of Pur Mineral’s and I went all day long with no flaking and just gorgeous lashes. I didn’t even have to curl my lashes to get a defined look, the mascara did all the work. I’m a fan.
