    Comments about PÜR Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

    I use this as a finishing powder. I have oily skin, and apply this powder over my other makeup. It works well, for awhile, to take away the oily/shiny look, but doesn't last all that long. If it lasted all day I would love even more, but it works well enough for me.

        Comments about PÜR Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

        As a vegan it is very difficult to find quality products to begin with, but adding my super sensitive skin is a nightmare. Pur has been, by far, the best makeup I have found. It is gentle and looks very natural. I don't like to look "cakey", and many of the other brands did this and irritated my skin. The coverage is good - and I do not have flawless skin. I am so glad I have finally found a brand that shares my beliefs and is "kind" to my skin.

            Love, love, love this powder! I usually have a problem with my skin getting shiny throughout the day and this product does a great job of keeping my makeup matte and long lasting. I used this to set my makeup and nothing moved throughout the day. The powder helps my makeup last through Texas heat. Buy this product you won't regret it.

                Comments about PÜR Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

                I have oily skin and I was looking for something that would remove the shine and give a little coverage, and this product does that. It goes on very light, but gives an even tone to my skin, plus it lasts all day. If it helps, I am an African American woman with a dark skin tone. Also, when it was sold to me, they stated that it does not contain talc (which would make you look like you are going to a funeral). I highly recommend this product!!!

                      Hi PUR Beauty! Absolutely! Balancing Act can be used on normal to dry & normal to oily skin tones. Balancing Act is meant to mattify "shine" on the skin, so if you are looking for a matte look then you will love Balancing Act translucent oil control powder!

                      A:

                      Balancing Act does not include an applicator. Pür Minerals recommends using a powder brush when applying Balancing Act.

                      You can certainly use Balancing Act alone for a marvelously matte, all-natural look! It provides sheer coverage.
