            I use this product most everyday. It is so much better than many of the mineral products that can turn ashy. It is great on my sensitive skin. I have fair, combination skin with sun spots and I can layer more in the places I need extra coverage. It is very easy to apply and blend. I have worked as a makeup artist for many years and this is one of the most versatile foundations I have worked with. It may be applied with a light hand for a natural, sheer finish or it can be layered for full coverage. I usually don't go for needing a certain brand's brush but with this product - their flat foundation brush is perfect, if not essential for getting the best performance from this product. The only negative is that it does not stay on my skin well. My (slightly oily) T zone needs touching up just after 4 hours. Wish this product wore longer.

              I love this product! It was a quick purchase after being recommended by an Ulta staff member for a finishing powder. I planned on wearing it over my liquid foundation but now I just wear it over my favorite primer and it covers great! I have pretty sensitive skin to products that are more natural, but I haven't had any breakouts with this product. I love that it has SPF, also!

                  Comments about Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup SPF 15:

                  I switched to Pur Minerals about two months ago when my loose powder foundation of Bare Minerals was about out. I prefer powder foundation over liquid foundation, just works better for my skin. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to cystic acne, at age 30! It's extremely frustrating to find a facial routine that does not bother my skin! I decided to switch from bare minerals because I was not sastified with how it did with my skin. Bare Minerals really seemed to settle into my pores and within 15 minutes I would be so oily, yet it was oil free. So I was hoping something was out there that was better, and there is! This stuff is my holy grail of foundation!! It is simply amazing!!!! I'm no longer a oil pot, I can literally go ALL day and not be greasy, which is a miracle in itself!!! I do have a compact for my purse as well to powder my nose, but it's not necessary for me to degrease my face throughout the day anymore. This stuff controls oil so well and does not settle into my pores like the bare minerals did. I haven't had any major breakouts since using this powder, and this is the only change I have my to my routine. I still use the same primer, the only kind I can use (Smashbox Photo Finish Light- for sensitive skin) and I use Tarte air brush finish makeup brush and my makeup is flawless. I love how it feels and looks like I have nothing on, yet it gives fantastic coverage! Highly recommend this to everyone!!! Can't go wrong!

                  I tried this instead of a competitor's because I was curious as my "old" product began to look cakey. The consultant matched my skin color and I tried it on the next day. MY SKIN LOOKED SMOOTH. My skin does have a few clogged pores, small pimples, redness from recent retinoid use-this product covered it all and made it appear like I had a whole new skin, not makeup. It went on like silk with a flat top brush. Its also great that you can take a concealr brush and dab it on the redness. The only con is I wished it last a little longer. But, for how smooth it goes on and perfect it looks for the 6-8 hrs it does last, I wont complain.

                    I love this it is light coverage but evens me out. I wear this everyday. It will not last you all day though I find myself touching up in the afternoon at work. This reduces all of the uneven redness my skin sometimes has and helps reduce the look of dark circles.

                      Years ago I used Pur minerals pressed compact foundation and loved it. However I always felt that It was just a little too light. At the time I used the "light" but felt the next darker option was too dark. I am light skinned with yellow undertones and need at least medium coverage for some dark spots. What do you suggest?

                        A:

                        If you are concerned with oil/shine control and extending wear, we recommend first applying the Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5120037

                        Unlike many other primers, this primer is oil-free and silicone-free, so it is a wonderful option for those who typically have issues with traditional primer formulas. It provides a lasting matte finish and helps to extend your makeup's wear.

                      Does this color oxidize? I am very pale and have tried a few mineral powders that start off OK then oxidize to a darker more orange color :(

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?
