I was VERY skeptical about trying this product. I have tried BE, JI, Jane, Physicians Formula, Almay, Cover Girl, you name. My overall opinion before Pur was that mineral makeup was pretty much shiny, glittery, not good coverage, and made my face VERY SLICK. But that's all changed now! I love this pressed foundation. Great coverage, natural looking, doesn't turn into weird colors, and it's reasonably priced. Another good reason I like this....it doesn't settle into my fine lines! Yeah!

I decided to try this product because Ulta was having a special. I got two for the price of one. One for me and one for my mom. We both love these minerals. It takes very little and it covers so well, it leaves my skin looking like porcelain, simply flawless. It also adds a nice glow without looking shiney. I have dry skin and this does not emphasize any dryness. I also am prone to breakouts but I have had no problems with this foundation. It never looks cakey on me, it actually looks better as the day goes on. It takes very little so this will last me a while. My mom will be 60 this year and this makes her skin look so soft and glowy. It covers redness reall well. I am very impressed!

This ended up breaking out my forehead, though the coverage was amazing .

This gives decent coverage and is easy to use, but it comes off way too easy even when I use primer and setting spray. Worst of all, it makes me break out. UPDATE: I ran out of my HG mineral foundation and I used this on its own, without my Revlon Colorstay under. I really like how it worked on its own. It looked too heavy over the colorstay, and it didn't come off as easily on my clothes when I used it by itself. I didn't break out after wearing it for about 4 days in a row either. I must have had some hormonal action going on when I first tried this.

this is the best foundation ever..it covers and evens out my skin tone without making me look cakey or powdery, i even put a light finishing powder over it to take away a little bit of shine coming through and smooth out my pores so i have a nice smooth matte complexion. i will not ever go back to BE or any liquid foundation. i have oily skin so after a long day when i need a touch-up just a light sweep of this will do the trick, you can layer it without it caking which i love...and a little bit goes a long way. i dont use the brush or the sponge that it comes with though, i actually use a big powder brush from studio gear. i think it gives it that more airbrushed appearance. loveeee!

I LOVE Pur Minerals. My skin is very sensitive and I get breakouts and clogged pores if I use anything creamy. This is the fastest foundation to apply and gives favulous results which really last - in fact you look better as the day goes on. I now have both my daughter (who is very fussy) and my daughter-in-law (who likes speed) using it too.

Thanks again to the MUA gals for steering me in the right direction. You're like the mother/sisters I never had! When I go into the shops now, I know exactly what I want to try and not at the mercy of aggressive sales staff; no longer wasting time or money. I've been using the Pur Minerals foundation in Light for the past week and full well delighted with it. The coverage and matte finish are superb, and it is the perfect new make-up for my (aspirin-yogurt-honey masque) improved complexion. Years ago I used the much more expensive La Bella Donna powder from Bergdorf's and this beats it hands down at a far cheapter price. And so simple and easy to use... Perhaps it's best for pink undertones? Anyway, I'll be going back to the store to stock up soon. Especially great in the summer to dispense with heavy concealer and liquid foundation. I got the 4-in-1 introduction kt with the brush and mineral glow which is also nice. Not sure about the marbelized powder but don't really care as it was a great foundation I needed, and a great foundation I got. Hooray.

This is an update to the earlier review. Although I really loved this powder foundation after about 2 weeks of wear I started breaking out. My skin started itching. I think it is a wonderful foundation if you are not allergic to minerals. I have returned to the Cover Girl Aqua Smooth cream foundation, applying it with a damp sponge. Then I top it with Cover Girl Simply Powder foundation, using the Pur Mineral brush. It gives nearly the same effect as the Pur Minerals using two steps rather than one. Earlier Review: I have been searching for the perfect foundation and I have found it with Pur Minerals. I have terrible skin, rosacea with broken capillaries and breakouts, large pores, oily and dry flaky skin. I am allergic to nearly everything I try. I was hesitant to try this having bad luck in the past with other mineral makeup. I was at Ulta and they said I could return it no questions asked. I purchased the starter kit in Light. I have to say I LOVE this makeup more than any I have ever used and I am 56 years old. It stays on all day. It is hot and humid where I live. It covers all my flaws and looks great. I use the pink mineral powder that came with the kit for blush and eye shadow. It works like a dream.

I'm currently swapping between EDM and BE mineral makeup but when I slept in the other day and had only 15 mins to get out the door, it was this compact I reached for. Quick matte coverage including concealer in under a minute (using the MAC 187). It covers a lot of flaws but really does need a little extra over the top of it (ie highlighter such as BE radiance etc) to stop it looking too flat. Nice to have a mineral makeup that isn't messy to use also. For those with allergies or very sensitive skin however, it does contain Bismuth Oxychloride which many claim to have negative skin reactions to.

Give me more of this product! I have never had such success with a mineral powder, much less a pressed one. Not only is it luminating, but it makes my skin look flawless without looking like I have pounds of makeup on. I don't have to reapply but one other time a day, which is more than I can say for our favorite loose mineral powder (you know what I'm talking about). It also has great coverage for those blemishes if using a concealer brush. :D
