I love this product! I have tried every make-up under the sun (which means i have been dissapointed many a time) and this is by far the best for my skin. I have combination/acne prone skin and have mainly used heavy liquid foundations in order to cover acne/acne scars. Never have I thought that a powder would do the trick, and I don't even use much of it. I use a bit of concealer on any spots i have on my face and finish off with the pressed poweder and voila! Flawless skin! I also use the pur minerals blush occasionally and like it also. Thumbs up from me :)
my everyday foundation
IMO its way better than bare minerals
has great medium coverage gets rid of redness and is not cakey!
i have dry combo skin and it works great if used on top of a moisturizer dry patches will not show through
since it is pressed there is no mess like loose powders
this has lasted me over 8 months and i use it atleast 4 times a week
also its great for travel
have 2 backups and will keep buying again and again!
This is the one foundation that works quickly and effectively for me. However, it does contain parabens for those who are cautious about that.
I have it in Golden Medium, and it took me a while to get a full coverage out of it. The only brush that I fend to work with this product is the Pur Minerals brush. I buff in the product to cover even my worst scars and break outs. I can use this foundation alone to cover all of that, but I have not tried it on my undereyes simply because I can't run the risk of drying or damaging my undereye skin.
When I top this with my Dream Matte from Maybelline, I can go without being shiny for around 8 hours. As a warning, this does cling to dry skin and sometimes even fine lines that I have around my mouth, so be sure to moisturize.
Thiis prodect i used for a good 2 years i have very oily skin there for i need to wear makeup. This covered my acne scars really well i was so suprised and stayed on all day and i live in texas so it with stood the heat ,this is by far the best powder i have tried , even with my primer it made it last allmost a whole day. this product is good for a day wear when liquid makeup is just to much. I would most definetly re purchase product the only reason why i switched was for the cargo blue ray powder.
It is expensive. but it did the job. good color match( golden medium), no skin issue(I do want to point out that it contain Bisuth, some people might allergc to), good coverage, just expensive. but I stock up with the BOGO in aug, should last me a while :-)
not very good makeup & lousy customer service. Why bother to accept such terms, shop elsewhere!!
I bought this consistently for a year with good results, then my skin started getting really shiny after using it.
After trying Pur, Bare, and Ulta's mineral powder foundations, this is the winner. Bareminerals (for me) was dead last, being impossible to find a color that didn't look too yellow or too light for my skin tone, and it caused horrible break-outs. Ulta is second, being a much more reasonable price, matching my skin tone, but again, causing horrible break-outs. So far, Purminerals is the only one that has managed to flawlessly match my skin tone, provide the buildable coverage I wanted, lasts decently (with primer, about 10-14 hours, without, 8-10), and did not cause horrific, painful acne. Although I dislike paying +$20 for a foundation every 6 weeks or so, this is obviously worth it, as it's the only one to meet the above requirements, and I never feel like it's cake-looking, overdone, or unnatural on me. It just looks like my skin, but better. (Note: I have super-sensitive skin that breaks out with any product containing SPF, retinols, SLS, etc.)
I have combination, acne-prone skin. Finding a foundation that both covers my scarring/acne and works well with my combination skin can be difficult, but I am pleased with Pur Minerals Powder Foundation.
I use porcelain (I believe that's what it is called...the most pale) and it matches my skin tone perfectly and makes my skin look like porcelain. It is quite difficult for me to find a perfect match, and this foundation has it!
I can not give it a 5, as it does not cover up acne well, but it evens out my skin tone so that my acne is toned down, but not invisible. Unlike a lot of people, I am realistic about the fact that 100% is not possible, so this product is great.
I suggest everyone try it out once. I prefer powder foundation, personally. Pur Minerals works well for me.
I watched a tutorial with the starter kit from this brand and was really excited to try it. When I received it I liked some of the products, but one of the products I didn't like was the foundation. I suppose that maybe I was expecting a bit more coverage since it's advertised to replace the need for concealer but it's very sheer coverage. Applied with the chisel brush in the kit, it looked horridly cakey yet covered absolutely nothing. When applied with my ELF complexion brush it looked like there was absolutely nothing on my skin - and not in a good way. Nothing at all was covered. I don't have horrible skin, but there are a few blemishes and things I'd like to at least diminish the appearance of and this did not do that at all. It also did not control my oily skin at all throughout the day - I got shiny very quickly.
Also I found the compact itself hard to open. Not sure if the latch is very tight or whatever but I always struggle to open it.
I hated this product. I would not recommend it unless you had absolutely perfect, normal skin. But in that case, you probably wouldn't need face makeup anyway!
