    Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

    I really like the product, it goes on well and covers up my red cheeks and occasional pimple easily and perfectly.

    The powdered doesn't feel heavy on my skin at all, it also doesn't come off when I blow my nose. I felt that this happened with my Bare Minerals. So that's a plus.

    The brush does shed a little, but not enough to dislike it.

    Overall, I think this is a great product and I think I will be purchasing this product again.

    Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

    Great product, not as much coverage as I thought. The brush is too short, bristles are soft but shed so much. I have only used this product 2 times now and constantly had to stop and wipe the bristles off my face.

        Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

        Goes on easily and lasts all day. I have pretty oily skin and this seems to last all day anyway. I don't love the smell of the primer, and the brush does shed a bit. If you have watery eyes like I do the mascara is definitely a no-go. It looks nice, but it does not last and you'll end up with racoon eyes.

        Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

        I really like this kit... never used Pur Minerals before. It is smaller in size.. good for travel and trying out without breaking the purse-strings!
        The primer is the only thing I don't care for as much because of the odor (which dissipates) and feel of it.. but that's the purpose of it.
        However, I use all products and it is so lightweight and covers fairly well.
        I would buy it again.

          • Q:

            I just started using the 4 in 1 pressed powder about 2 weeks ago. I am using the pore-fessional primer from benefit under my makeup, but I'm having a difficult time getting enough coverage. I have a lot of acne scars and my face so I need a little extra help in the coverage dept. The powder does not seem to transfer to my foundation brush easily and I'm noticing the powder is starting to look oily from the brush. Am I doing something incorrectly and how can I get more coverage out of this product? And also how should I clean the brush and how often?

              A:

              Due to the viscosity of pore-fessional primer, it will wear best if applied in a thin layer under the 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup. Pore-fessional primer could also be applied over the 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup using a concealer brush and blending out or using your ring finger. The 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup applies a medium to full flawless coverage on its own and is often paired with the Pur Minerals Correcting Primers (Prep & Perfect, Redness Reducer, Dark Spot Corrector, Hydrate & Balance or Illuminate & Glow). Foundation or complexion brushes should be cleansed on a regular basis (every 3-6 weeks) with a gentle cleanser or brush cleaner.

              A:

              Light Tan may work well for you during the winter months. You can always deepen the shade by applying Mineral Glow bronzer lightly all over the face until your desired color is achieved.

              4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup provides buildable full coverage to fully cover your redness. We recommend choosing the shade closest to your skin tone for the most natural look. We suggest Porcelain. The included Correcting Primer, worn under your foundation, also helps to promote even skin tone.
