Pur Minerals Perfect Starter Kit

Like many mineral makeup companies, Pur Minerals offers a starter kit. I gave one a try, and was generally impressed.

The starter kit comes with the following:

  • 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup:  What I liked right off about this item was that it was pressed. Pressed mineral makeup is much easier to apply than loose powder and it makes much less of a mess. Pur Minerals’ foundation also has fairly high coverage, making it good for covering melasma, acne, or redness. I thought the coverage was much higher than Bare Minerals or Everyday Minerals (including Everyday Minerals’ heavier coverage items). The makeup wore well for me for an entire day and never felt dry or cakey. It also wasn’t obnoxiously shiny like some other brands (especially Bare Minerals) can be. The mineral makeup is free of oil, alcohol, talc, fragrances, preservatives and chemical dyes. It also includes shea butter and vitamin E. However, I did notice bismuth in the ingredient list, so people who are sensitive to that will want to avoid it.
  • Mineral Glow:  This is a basic mineral bronzer that looks and wears quite nice. For those who like a bit of bronzer over blush, it is a good choice.
  • Universal Marble Powder in Pink: This is a multi-purpose mineral makeup that can be worn as a blush or highlighter. It has a nice flattering pink tone to it. Because it is pressed, it is easy to use and carry.
  • The Chisel Makeup Brush: Pur Minerals makes brushes of OK quality. The chisel Makeup Brush is the right size and type for good application of the mineral foundation. Mine occasionally loses hair though, which I would not normally expect in a brush that is sold individually at $22. Regardless, it still is a good applicator.

Pur Minerals starter kits retail for $35 and are a good way to try out the company’s products at a decent value. You can purchase Pur Minerals online at at ULTA Beauty  Pur Minerals Perfect Starter Kitstores.

  1. Thanks for the review on Pur Minerals. I just grabbed a kit to try and it’s good to read your review. I like the idea of the pressed versions as well. At least I can use them to travel with, rather than taping all my regular mineral jars up. :)
