Pur Minerals Reviews

Here are the Pur Minerals Reviews shared by site visitors.  Also includes shade selections and ingredients.  First, here's my review:

Pur Minerals two pressed foundation formulasPur Minerals has two pressed foundation formulas - the original and one with added skin care ingredients.

Pur Minerals Makeup is a pressed mineral foundation. It has gotten rave reviews and happens to be not only my favorite pressed mineral makeup, but one of my favorites of all the many mineral makeups I have tried. It is on my short list of "Best Mineral Makeup".  

It is also the foundation I buy for my 19 year old daughter. I know she wouldn't like the fuss of loose minerals and this looks great on her.  It is the only foundation she had ever worn.

When I first tried it, I did not care for it because I thought it looked too heavy - then I realized I was using too much. It only takes a very light sweep across the makeup to get enough on your brush.

I wear Medium in everything and have cool skin tones and the Blush Medium color is a perfect match.

It provides good medium to full coverage with minimal effort. Even though it does contain Bismuth, it has a nice matte finish. I am very prone to breakouts and this does not cause me to breakout.

One of my coworkers (who knows I am into mineral makeup) asked me what brand I was wearing - she said it looked so nice with a nice matte finish - she tried mineral makeup but didn't like the "glow'" from the one she tried.

I am also using Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Eye Shadows and I really like them as well.

I would recommend Pur Minerals to anyone who wants to use mineral makeup but doesn't like using the loose formulas. I feel like it offers a little better coverage than most mineral makeup, so I would also recommend it to anyone who wants more coverage. There have been quite a few PurMinerals Reviews submitted by visitors and for the most part they are very positive.
