        Went to Ulta to purchase a competitor's mineral makeup (actually had it in my hand) but a makeup artist did a demo of this product on me. WOW! What a difference. Removed the red tint from my skin and is not anywhere near as messy as the loose powder I was planning to buy. Also eliminated the need to put on foundation and mineral veil. This one does both.

                  I have used Bare Minerals for over 10 years and wanted to try a new product. This was recommended by the CSR as a more natural product and better for my skin. I do like it, however I feel she picked too light of a shade for me..
                  I would buy it again but will definitely see what the next shade darker would look like on me.

                      While mineral makeup has caused concerns with flash photography due to ingredients like mica or titanium dioxide, Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup has proven all mineral makeup is not created equally. Not only will it perform beautifully in front of the camera your skin will look flawless. We use the 4-in-1 Powder for all occasions from weddings, photo shoots to everyday life! If you are inquiring regarding an upcoming special occasion, try Pur Minerals Liquid Veil over the 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup or Pur’s 14hour long wear Liquid Foundation under the 4-in- Mineral Makeup.

                  • Q:

                    I have large pores on my nose and want coverage to minimize my pores, cover my skin cancer scar on my cheek and even out my skin. I do not like liquid foundation b/c I feel it makes me look like I am wearing too much make up and settles into creases. I have been using Laura Geller baked balance and brighten powder but the coverage isn't as good as I had hoped, and it tends to make me break out. I do use pore perfect primer (Too faced) to minimize pores under my foundation but I was hoping you could tell me if you recommend this product (Pur 4 in 1) and perhaps also a liquid foundation to wear underneath at times (evening social events). I have been avoiding liquid foundation for so long maybe there has been a revolution in technology and the problems I used to have are in the past?

                      Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup SPF 15 features buildable coverage, so you can certainly achieve full coverage using it. It also contains no chemical dyes, no petroleum-based oils, no fragrance and no fillers, so it is a great option for those who find traditional cosmetics irritating. It pairs beautifully with 4-In-1 Liquid Foundation, which offers comparable skincare benefits and a natural looking finish:

                      You can certainly use Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup SPF 15 over your 4-In-1 Liquid Foundation for additional coverage, if you prefer; however, you can achieve full coverage using 4-In-1 Liquid Foundation alone, since it features buildable coverage.

                      A:

                      The Golden Dark would be shade to consider replacing your previous foundation shade. But, here are some great recommendations to assist you in finding your perfect shade based on your skin tone:
                      If you have, light bronze with yellow undertones select the Medium Dark shade in the 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup.
                      If you have a skin tone with bronze, golden undertones select the Golden Dark in the 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup.
                      Or if your skin tone is deeper with mahogany, amber undertones select he Deep in the 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup.

                      We suggest using our online shade finder here:
