I absolutely love this product. Gives you moderate coverage, you don't look made up, you just look natural, and it takes only 30 seconds to apply! I also use it as a concealer on areas with redness, spots, etc. Great product!!

This product I took a gamble on purchasing and it was worth it. I have the split pan duo in Blush Medium and Tan. I really like this foundation. For an easy mom on the go it does its job. The coverage is buildable and it is easy to work with. I dislike the loose minerals because they tend to go everywear but i love the look that mineral makeup gives me. This product was the best mineral foundation because it is in a pan, there is no mess and the coverage is there.
I like the split pan because I loose my tan in the winter and it saves me having to buy 2 colours.

if you want fast, easy, affordable makeup.. this is it !! this is very quick in coverage especially when used with the chisel brush in their "3-d" motion! I LOVE IT!! you get flawless face in seconds !! reason why i gave it a 4 is because of the bismuth oxychloride ( a cheap filler that can cause irritation over time) .. many people cant use this .. especially sensitive skin like mines ! BUT GOSH I LOVE THE COVERAGE AND FLEXIBILITY !

This review is for the 4-in-1 Powder Compact.... I love this powder!!!!
I use the "Deepest" (the darkest color they make) as my base and use "Deeper" (2nd darkest color...) as a concealer under my eyes, and as a highlighter on on my cheeks and chin. But I know a few sistas who are a darker hue than me that would not be able to use Pur's limited deep color range. They need at least 2-3 more shades. I hope they will expand one day!!
But the "Deepest" is a perfect match for my skin tone. It gives me a better warmth and glow than my faves Bobbi Brown (Oil Free Liquid in Almond 7), Lancome (Tient Idole in Suede), Chanel (Matte Lumiere in Walnut) or MAC (NW 45, sometimes NW43 in loose). I love that I don't need to set it with another powder, and go through so many steps. It is so rare you find a mineral makeup that has a beautiful *matte* yet natural finish and quality comparable to high end commercial lines.
I am dark brown, but have a yellow, rather than red undertone. I have some discoloration on the lower half of my face from acne meds. I would say Pur is medium to full coverage. It evens me out great. It doesn't fully cover a scar I have on my cheek, but it otherwise looks great! You can really build the coverage. I have had it on all day and it hasn't streaked around my creases, or faded at all!
I love that Pur has no parabens, silicone, fragrance, talc, harsh preservatives, or other gunk that can clog and irritate my acne prone skin. My only gripe is that it can feel a bit heavy if you don't blend well. I think my powder brush (Stila) is too soft and I need to buy the Pur powder brush like the one the Ulta makeup tech used on me....

I like the texture of this foundation.
The problem that I have against this makeup line is that it does not provide a lot of shades. Light is too light for me. Golden Medium is too dark and pink for me. I wouldn't try Blush Medium, it looks way too pink.
It also contains oxychloride which causes a lot of inflammation to my sensitive skin.

I purchased the 4-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation at PurMinerals online, and followed with the kit two weeks later. I absolutely love the foundation; it covers great, wears well and reveals soft, luminous skin. The compact has two sections: one side has foundation and the other has a small brush and mirror. The kit includes a smaller version of the foundation, application brush, a tanner and beautiful pink blush. Great way to test these products, and the results are also fabulous.
I, too, used B.E. but no matter how carefully I put it on, the product always settled into fine lines and I looked dusty; had way too much mica for my taste. I think it is probably great for younger gals! With mineral foundation all the rage, I really think that PurMinerals is a terrific buy.

I had high hopes for this product. It is very expensive in Australia so I ordered it from the USA. It does give good coverage, but it doesn't last on my skin. Sadly, it leaves a residue that is quite hard to remove. Twice in the last month I have been asked if I have dry skin - I don't but it looks like I do due to the flakiness that is left by this product.
I had been a mineral foundation user for years and chose to try something more convenient to use but it looks like I will be back to liquid foundation for a while.

Love this product! I have extremely oily skin, and this provides a nice matte finish and really lasts through the day. Also, it doesn't cause break outs and the price is great. Golden Medium is a great shade for fair - medium skin, and doesn't turn orange even on the most oily skin types.

I've been searching for a mineral makeup that I like and thought I'd give this one a try.
It's normally $25, but they were running a half price sale. Can't complain about $12 for a foundation - so I'd say it's fairly inexpensive. I love the compact...it's small and circular and has a sponge right underneath. It makes it easy to carry with you in your purse.
When I put this on it looked great. Gave me a nice texture with just a hint of dew (if that makes any sense). But within a few hours I was an oil slick! It would probably do great for someone with dry skin, but not me.

I love this mineral foundation. I have been using it for a month now and it does look like there isn't very much in the container but with using it everyday I have hardly put a dent in it. I bought it on sale 2 for 1 so a friend and I split the price and now I wish I would have just bought 2 for myself because at full price its a little more than I would like to pay but probably will because I like it so much. You must follow the directions on how to use it though because my friend just took out the sponge that came it with it and it didn't work good that way so I told her to use her kabuki brush and swirl it and then swirl it in the lid and tap and now she is happy too.
