Review: Pur Minerals

Hi Everyone!
Sorry for being MIA but I'm officially back!

I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite purchases of the new year: Pur Minerals

I had heard great things about Pur Minerals from various bloggers and just word of mouth. I have incredibly sensitive skin so one of the things that drew me to Pur Minerals is that its just "pure pigments from minerals"- no chemicals. So I bought the starter kit for 20% off during an ULTA sale, while it normally retails for $35.

Here is what the starter kit comes with:

4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup: I cannot say enough great things about this. I generally have pretty clear skin so I don't usually use foundation. This is the perfect alternative for me. Very sheer coverage that is just what I need. It covers up my redness and blackheads (eccckkk) flawlessly. So much so that I don't even need concealer.

Mineral Glow: Good product, though I could live without it. It gives me a very slight bit of glow/bronze, but then again, nothing spectacular.

Universal Marble Powder in Pink: My second favorite product in the starter kit. I love the rosy color of this blush. And supposedly, can be worn on cheeks, eyes, and lips too.

Chisel Makeup Brush: Very good brush, would be better if it was a bit softer. However, its a great sturdy brush that applies the mineral makeup very well. Hasn't shed one bit and I love the clear handle.

Yes, $35 doesn't exactly seem like a bargain. But think about it, you're getting 4 different products. And also, the brush itself retails for $22 dollars! One of the drawbacks though is that the makeup products are travel size so you're not getting the regular amount of product. However, it's still a decent size. Overall, I think this is a great kit. I've been using it everyday since I got it and I'm absolutely in love with it.

P.S. The starter kit is being sold on HSN.com for $29.50. Look for a 15% coupon, as HSN usually has those. HSN doesn't carry the full line of shades so definitely check out the Pur Minerals website first.


  1. hey girly. if you are interested in some contacts from asia. let me know. ounsreysomaly.blogspot.com

  2. Apparently there are one time use codes floating around for those who ordered free samples from pur minerals before.
    It gives you 50% off the starter kid, plus 7 dollars shipping? Something like that.
    I was hoping to snag a code, but still unable to.
    For the amount of products you get, it is a great deal though :)

  3. Yeah I actually for the kit for half off! They sent me a code in an email, plus regular shipping and handling fees, etc... I still can't believe I got it at such a good deal!
