Sadly, this weekend I couldn’t film because there’s a big carnival going on right in front of my home. You can imagine the noise right? Yes, same songs on repeat… Instead I decided to do a blogpost on some items I’ve recently purchased and tried out from the brand PÜR.
The past month I’ve been struggling with spots showing up over night and multiplying as if my skin is like a painting that needs to get some color and texture. Therefore I decided to try some mineral make-up hoping it would help my skin in some way.
I’ve heard a lot of things about the brand PÜR and decided to give their products a try. I’ve picked up a few things from the website http://www.beautybay.com. -No this blogpost isn’t sponsored, I’ve bought all the products with my own money :)-
PÜR claims to be the destination around the globe for the best in skin-perfecting mineral-based makeup and skincare solutions. They describe their mineral makeup as “makeup with a purpose.” All products are formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients (shea butter, vitamin c, retinol etc) that not only help cover skin imperfections but also help correct its overall appearance. On top of that the brand is 100% cruelty-free = not tested on animals. Reading this, I was pretty curious to try out their products.
Products I’ve purchased:
- PÜR 4-in-1 Liquid 14 Hour Wear Foundation SPF15 in the shade Light – 27,50euro
- PÜR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation SPF15 in the shade Light – 27,60euro
- PÜR My Favourite Things Bestseller Trio – on sale for 13,80euro
PÜR 4-in-1 Liquid 14 Hour Wear Foundation
This product claims to be lightweight and oil free, allows you to go all day long (14 hours to be exact!) without touching up your makeup. That last part sounds really good right? I’m a big fan of liquid foundations because my face is a bit ‘fuzzy’ so I like that liquids aren’t as drying as a powder. At first I was a bit scared that the lightest color wouldn’t be light enough for my pale skin but oh-my, even though the foundation applies a bit streaky it is the right color for me and I love the finish of it! You definitely need to work the product into your skin but the foundation gives your skin a natural glow. I wouldn’t say it is a full coverage foundation. If you’re looking for a foundation that will be full coverage from the start you wouldn’t really like this product. You can layer the foundation without the feeling of having a mask on though. Lasting up to 14 hours? I never wear my make-up that long so I can’t tell for sure, but personally after 10 hours I could do with a touch-up.
PÜR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation SPF15
“A makeup and skincare hybrid, 4 In 1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation SPF15 gives you the flawless Mineral coverage of a professional foundation with the anti-ageing benefits of a ground-breaking skincare formula”. I admit, I didn’t use this product on his own but on top of my foundation because of my pimple-face. So far so good, it is a fine powder that provides that extra coverage I really need at the moment. I will give you guys an update on this soon (when I dare to wear it on his own that is ;)).
PÜR My Favourite Things Bestseller Trio
This Favourite Things Bestseller Trio seemed perfect to try out some more products of the brand. The kit contains a mini mineral glow bronzer, mini big look mascara with argan oil & mini lip gloss stick in Berry Pretty. The bronzer is a nice one, loved it the minute I applied it. It is pretty dark for fair skin but it blends very well and stays a long time. That and the fact that it’s mineral make-up & cruelty free = big yes! The mascara on the other hand isn’t that wow. It makes your lashes pretty long but tends to clump when you apply more than 1 layer, which I don’t like (see the picture below). The lip gloss stick is one to keep in your handbag. It is a nice color for transferring into Fall, smells A-M-A-Z-I-N-G but is more of a moisturizing lip balm and on the sheer side. Overall a good kit if you want to test products without purchasing full size ones.
For the moment I can tell that the base (foundation, powder & bronzer) gives me a really confident feeling and does look natural (as far as make-up can look natural). I’m a big fan of the finish of the foundation & I’m pretty excited to see if this mineral make-up will make a difference in the appearance of my skin when I use the products a bit longer.
I will keep you guys posted on how I get along with these PÜR products over time!
PS: Even Lio liked to play with the products. Maybe because they are cruelty-free? *hands, or should I say paws?, in the air*
