How is it that I generally hate the products that get the best reviews? I have tried several brands of mineral make up and so far Pur minerals has been the worst one for me. Of course I loved it when I tried it in the store. I thought it was a great color match, gave great coverage and I loved that it was a pressed powder. It was also night time and the lighting was poor. The next morning I applied it before work and still thought it was marvelous. When I got to work I took a quick look at myself in the mirror on my car visor. I was surprised to see the shine on my face. I have found shine to be a problem with all the MMU's I have tried but this was the worst offender yet. I went in to work feeling somewhat disappointed. A couple of hours later I went outside and checked my face again. HORRIFIC!! Not only was my face a greasy shiny mess, it was Orange!! and the makeup was wearing off in splotches and it was still morning. Yikes! I couldn't wait for the day to end so I could come home and wash that crap off of my face. I hate to say it because I know there a lot of bare minerals haters out there but bare minerals is still my favourite mineral make up. Smashbox comes in at a close second, followed by Merle Norman. Pur doesn't even merit being on my list. I know a lot of people love it but it just didn't work out for me at all.

This was the second mineral foundation that I'd used. I have combination skin, and get oily on my forehead and cheeks, and i found that this foundation made my face much oilier than usual. I also noticed that when I stopeed using it my face started clearing up. I liked how it was so compact; it was very easy to throw in my makeup bag, however it did not come with a large amount of powder and I ran out within the frst month. I also loved the coverage that it gave me, but I don't think that it is the right foundation for me. I bought Pur Minerals twice, and I don't think I'll be buying it again.

(More like 3 1/2) It's a decent mineral powder. 4 in 1 is moderately priced for a mineral foundation, has a good range of colors, and doesn't give you that fake overly matte look. The coverage is light to medium and buildable, BUT and here comes the cons... the sheen that keeps the powder from looking too matte can give you a somewhat metallic/grayish sheen so you have take that into consideration before buying. Lastly, my biggest gripe with this product is that it transfers LIKE CRAZY! The slightest touch can leave a lovely brown spot on any blouse. Don't embarrass yourself, give handshakes skip hugs

I like this product so far but I only use it when I am in a rush (cuz it's fast and easy to apply with a kabuki brush). The reason I don't use it often is because I find the coverage is not so great, light to medium, and if I put too much, it looks extremely cakey and accentuate my pores. I also have to reapply it often because I apply very little so keep it look natural and it fades very fast; let say about two or three hours I have to reapply it on my T-zone.

Great product.Was debating whether to buy/go for Jane Iredale but a representive sampled the foundation on me and I converted.She gave me a hand mirror and pushed me toward the natural light and I was blown away! No caked look, eveness and absolutely subtle.I also bought the intensive eye treatement and lip balm and am in love!

The coverage and finish are flawless, but Blush Medium washed me out and I exchanged it for a Golden Medium which is a bit dark. I have dry skin, but the foundation doesn't overly accentuate dry areas if I'm careful. I dab on just a bit at a time with my brush, over a primer.EDIT: After 2-3 weeks of use, it tends to dry out my skin and it is more noticeable with winter settling in, and I'm still not completely happy with the colour. Luckily, my friend likes it enough to buy it off me. Still highly recommend this brand though!

initially, i got to try the foundation with the starter's kit. after i finished that one, i went back and repurchased. i dont know if the formula changed or what, but it made me look gray and the color just didn't work even though the SA helped me out.i ended up giving it to someone else. when i go back and look at pictures from when i used the one in the starter's kit, my face looks very nice, as if i'm not wearing any foundation. i wish i could look like that again. im wary of purchasing again cuz i'm not sure what went wrong.

I love almost everything about this product. The pressed powder cuts down on the wasted product all over my bathroom vanity, the coverage is great, I love that it has SPF, and it does work as a concealer as well with a small brush. However, I can't use it if I'm going somewhere where I'll be warm, and its just not wearable at all for me in the summertime. Like lots of folks, I have a reaction to the bismuth in this product. If I perspire at all, I start to get this stinging sensation on my face. Once I've used this up, I'll have to switch to something else. So sad :(

This is THE BEST mineral make up I have tryed. I recommend this product highly. Much much better than Bare Minerals. It is worth the money and actually saves you money because you don't need mineral veil to go over the minerals. I couldn't believe the difference between the to. Definetly worth the money.
