I'm not believing all the positive reviews about this product. Both MUA and Beautipedia gives this moisturizer high marks. And. . . it's an MUA best pick for foundation. I initially liked this product but after a few days it was a no-go. Here's why:
- Not for my mature dry skin as I need slightly more coverage and longer wear. Mid to end of day fade.
- No color match for cool/fair skin. The lightest shade is much too yellow (and beige).
- Slight shimmer of tiny sparkles that's noticeable outdoors or natural light.
- Too expensive for the quality (not worth $37 with tax).
- Poor packaging -- the silver cap did not close properly so the lid stayed loose.

I bought this product a couple of days ago. A Pur Minerals representative was at Ulta the day I visited and told me this was a great oil free option for sensitive skin. I was dissapointed to find out after I purchased it that it was not actually oil free. However, after reviewing the ingredient line up, there are only a few common ingredients I see that may cause irritation- overall not bad. Because of this reason, I am going to stick this out for a couple of weeks to see how my skin reacts to it. I actually really like the product itself. A little goes a long way, and it initially goes on smooth and moisturizing, drying matte. This is perfect for my combination skin. I have not had problems with it being overly shiny or coming off during the day as reviews have stated, but I do set it with powder. My only big complaint of this product is the color section. The light shade is way too orange/dark on me. I have fair skin with pink undertones and this light shade seems like it would be better for someone slightly more tan with yellow undertones. However, because I set the tinted moisturizer with a very thin layer of my bare minerals powder in light, I able to camaflogue a lot of the orange hue- making it natural looking enough for me to wear. This color inconvenience may cause me to not repurchase the product. However, because I like the actual product itself, if it does not irritate my skin, there is a good chance I will continue just setting it with the lighter shade of Bare Minerals. I will edit this review after a couple of weeks if my skin does react to it.

I really liked this TM at first. The texture is comparable to Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal. A pea sized amount over a light moisturizer (difficult to spread without one) leaves a dewy finish.
I notice a bit of glitter/shimmer when applied on my hand but thankfully it's not really noticeable on my face. It also swatches really dark on my hand/arm but seems to apply on my face much lighter. Although the lightest shade might be a bit too dark for ladies with fair skin, it's a decent match for my tanned skin in the summer.
The coverage is a bit lighter than the Pixi TM and doesn't really seem to even out my skin as much as I'd like. If I apply too much, it makes my face look oily.
Not a bad TM but there are some better ones out there. Will not repurchase.

As someone who doesn't wear much make up, I don't have much to compare too. I wanted something light and breathable, but that would still mask my massive freakin' pores. VOILA. Without primer this stuff is crap, but with primer this stuff blends great and doesn't look cakey. Brush some Pur Mineral powder on top and I'm set for the night. I'm a fan.

love this. why do i keep trying to cheat on it?
ive tried clinique (not enough coverage or colors) and naked (burns my eyes and looks like nothing)
Ill stick with Pur, it does not have shimmer but does somehow look luminous which i havent found yet except for laura mercier luminous primer, but thats just a primer for those full-on makeup days!
Pur BB and Tarte cheek stain are perfect together for beach or gym days. Perfect no makeup look :)

Have been trying CC creams... Got this one in a BirchBox and figured I'd try it. Not a hit here. The color was fine, consistency fine too. But I got too shiny by the end of the day, even with a mattifier underneath. And I think it caused a few breakouts.... I threw my BirchBox sample away. Oh well. Can't win 'em all!

I absolutely LOVE this product. It goes on almost like more of a medium coverage foundation, and stays put all day. I prefer to dust some of my 4-in-1 compact over this because it helps tone down the mica (the sparkle people are talking about in some of the other reviews), while still leaving the appearance of more radiant skin. A little goes a LONG way with this product, so it's a great value at $34. A pea size amount is really all you need for your entire face, less if you only want to apply it to problem areas.
I should also add that when working with this product, I've found it's pretty easy to manipulate the shade to match your skin. The light has more of a yellow undertone (this shade seems to suite most), the medium has a pink undertone, and the tan (which is the shade I use) works really well on olive skin tones.
Overall = FANTASTIC! Love it! :)

A cosmetician at shoppers drugmart gave me a sample of this to try (she squirted it into a pill container for me) since I have such a hard time with foundations either causing breakouts, not matching my skin or drying my skin out more (i'm dry/dehydrated with normal t-zone, prone to breaking out).
I've used this twice now and LOVE it. I'm an NC20 with a touch more yellow in my skin and yet this TM seems to moisturize just enough for my dehydrated combo skin and it blends into my neck color perfectly.
I dont notice the sparkles that others mention, maybe the newer formulas dont have it? There is no scent and I like that because scents drive me crazy or cause irritaion to my skin. I also like that its a bit thicker than a regular TM, so I can use my Mac foundation brush to apply this. I find that if I pat it into the skin, I get a perfect, healthy, dewy look. Of course, it doesn't cover zits, but again, its a TM, not full coverage.
I'm going to use up my sample and if I'm still zit free, I will definately be purchasing this. I should also add that I'm using Light.

I read the reviews on here and tried it out in the store, and it seemed just what I was looking for for a tinted moisturizer. except for two things:
1. It feels so dry on your face! which is strange because it's supposed to be a moisturizer, but also stranger because I have pretty oily skin.
2. It has shimmer! Little tiny flecks of glitter, while not being obnoxious, still ends up making my face look all shiny. ugh.
also, it doesn't cover at all. since its a tinted moisturizer I won't knock a lippie, but really I expected it to even me out just a little bit.
also I found it was irritating my skin slightly. a little zit here and there, but in places where I never get them except when I use this (like my forehead).
So really I just ended up with a really expensive tube of shimmery sunscreen. Will not buy again.

Thick and difficult to spread on evenly. Unless you want to spend a really long time working in sections and perfecting an even coverage, don't bother buying this. Like the person below me commented, this TM does dry quickly - too quickly. It also has too many sparkles. I switched from this to Laura Mercier, and I'm much happier with my Laura Mercier TM.
