Mineral makeup's a tricky subject for me, as I haven't tried a huge variety of products within this category, therefore I don't know exactly what to look for when sampling a new product. However, if my makeup is smooth in texture, makes my skin look flawless, AND stays in place all day, I can't really complain!
Pur Minerals is an American brand which includes anti-aging, hydrating and protecting vitamins in the manufacturing of its formulas in order to provide visible results in the quality of skin appearance. Its products are cruelty free, environmentally responsible and available in the UK from Beauty Expert.
In this review I'll be talking about two products by Pur Minerals: the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup* and the Summer Collection Soul Mattes Eye Palette*, both of which are £24 - a premium price, but worth every penny.
The 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup is a foundation, concealer, powder and SPF - an all round product and definite makeup bag staple. It can be worn over a liquid foundation, or by itself, and it offers buildable coverage - but doesn't cake when your accidentally overapply (we've all done it).
I know all foundation manufacturers push the idea of a flawless finish, and some don't quite deliver; but Pur Minerals does. I have incredibly dry skin, but miraculously the powder makes it appear as if my skin is smooth and hydrated - and now I'm hooked.
Equally, their Soul Mattes Eye Palette is efficient and easy to use. The colours, ranging from dark plum brown to light cream, are so blendable that they don't even slightly blotch on application. This set of complimentary colours can be applied using the brush that comes with the palette, or with the user's own brushes.
These shades are true to colour and have quite a high pigmented; they're not the MOST pigmented eye shadows I've ever used, but they're pretty high up on the list! I can see myself using some shades more than others, such as Alter Ego (dark plum), Adore (dark beigy pink) and Sweetheart (pastel pink), but I'm certain the rest will come in handy when I decide to change up my look.
