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.

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!

Wow, I absolutely loveee this product! I've used Mary Kay Mineral Foundation for years, but it just gave little to no coverage and it didn't stay on my face more than a couple hours. So I did my research and Pur Minerals sounded promising. It so is!! Great coverage without looking "fake" or made up. And even though this foundation gives great coverage without a ton of layers, it doesn't feel heavy on my face at all. I do have breakouts sometimes, so I use Bare Minerals Bisque Concealer with the Pur Minerals- perfect coverage and face! UPDATE: Turns out, despite me really wanting this to be MY perfect foundation...it made my face breakout reallllllyyyy bad. Big big bumps and lots of little ones too. I'm kinda afraid this product may have brought on cystic acne for me(if that's possible). So after waiting for what was probably too long- I had to stop using this foundation. Since then my face has kinda calmed down- even though I feel like I'm still having some lasting negative effects from the makeup. The great things I said about the make up above are still true- but the major con outweighs all the pros.
