Pür Minerals -- A Perfect Match, with Just the Right Amount of Coverage (Review)

How does your makeup hold up in this heat?  I don't know about you, but, I have struggled to find just the right makeup that will not only provide the coverage I need, but also feel light on my skin.  Being a busy mom to young girls, I don't have the luxury to spend an hour getting ready in the AM.  I am lucky if I can sneak a shower in before they get up. If not, then I have to wait until they take their mid-morning nap to.  So, when it comes to putting on makeup, I have 10-15 minutes tops, before one of my girls begins calling for me.
Recently, I was sent a starter kit from Pür Minerals to try.  I had read about this brand before, but never tried it.  Now, after using it for over three weeks now, I can't believe I waited so long.  This is the first makeup that didn't feel heavy on my skin, actually blended in with my skin tone, and provided all day coverage, even in the heat. Yes, you read that makeup stayed put.  I didn't have shiny t-zone spots like I would have if I used other makeups.  And, when applying products from the starter kit I was sent -- a little goes a long way.  Like I said, I am almost a month into using the products I was sent, and I have only made a small dent.  
Just look at what was included in my starter kit, which retails for only $39.  After seeing this kit up close, I would have thought it would have cost more, if I had bought each product individually in high end boutiques and other retailers selling quality makeup products.
Lots of makeup can make you look pretty, but how many can improve clarity or diminish the look of fine lines? More than just a get-the-look kit, Start Now! is an expressway to a naturally flawless complexion. In an eight-week clinical study, women of all ages saw an improvement in their skin’s appearance after using this five-piece kit. Up to 89 percent saw a smoother, softer appearance while 75 percent experienced visibly less irritation than before.

This portable perfection makeup kit, which retails for only $39.00, includes:

  • 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup (.15 oz/4.3 g): Loose powders are so last year. Combining pure mineral pigment with the finest skin care ingredients, our all-in-one foundation, concealer, powder and SPF 15 has inspired generations of women to forget the mess and go pressed.
  • Neutral Primer (.3 fl oz/10 ml): While most primers create the illusion of a more uniform complexion, our skin correcting formula contains special key ingredients that minimize the look of pores, dark spots and fine lines for a truly flawless makeup canvas.
  • Mineral Glow (.12 oz/3.4 g): Combining premium quality minerals with proven firming ingredients, Mineral Glow gives skin a natural-looking touch of sun with added skin care benefits.
  • Impact+ Mascara (.12 oz/3.4 g): Lengthen, thicken or curl—most mascaras give you just one option. Impact+ gives you all three, with the added benefit of extreme lash hydration for naturally healthier looking lashes.
  • Chisel Brush: Designed specifically for our 4-in-1 formula, this cruelty-free total coverage brush delivers an effortlessly even application every time. Also works with Pür specialty powders.
  • Pür Minerals does NOT test its products on animals.
I chose the light shade and found it to match my fair skin perfectly.  The makeup when applied went on effortlessly.  And, I didn't need any special makeup brushes or sponges to apply.  Everything I needed was included in this kit, which was compact enough to travel with.  I ended up emptying out my old makeup bag to bring the above Pür Minerals makeup with me last week on vacation.  This was the first time I didn't struggle to zip the bag, which is usually overflowing with product.  
My favorite product in the kit was the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup.  I couldn't get over how well it covered up fine lines, spots and large pores.  And, being an all-in-one foundation, concealer and powder, I was able to apply in under 3 minutes and not need to lay out a variety of products to do the same job.  Oh, and did I mention it contains SPF 15 coverage.  You should be protecting your skin 365 days a year, especially paying close attention to it during the summer months.  As for my second favorite product in my starter kit, I am loving the mascara.  Gone are the clumpy eyelashes, that look fake.  Instead, Pur make my eyelashes pop with the volume and curl it gave to them.  I couldn't help but bat my eyes at my husband to show him. :-)  The remaining items in this starter kit were equally amazing, and really added to a clean finish to my makeup.  I am so glad I tried and loved Pur Minerals products, and will be stocking up, once I begin to run low.

So, if you are in the market for a new makeup regime that is not only fast and looks, but is also affordable, then why not consider picking up a starter kit from Pur Minerals to try today?  You will not be disappointed.
