Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

I was looking for a new product to replace my existing
foundation and powder, unfortunately this is not it. I do love the mascara and the primer that came in the starter kit so I will continue to
purchase those items. I am stilll on the hunt for a good
foundation and/or powder. Any suggestions?

        Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

        I bought this kit for my daughter for Christmas. She loves the makeup, but was very disappointed to find the brush shed bristles too much. The cost of the kit is just slightly more than the cost of the brush separately. I would have been upset if I had bought the brush for that price with the same problem.

        I do think the quality of the makeup itself was worth the price I paid (on sale).

          I have been using BE for 10 years and decided to give Pur a try after a friend of mine raved about it. The first few uses the brush would shed but I kept with it for a two week period to see what I thought. After using it for two weeks I went back to the BE due to flaky coverage, settling into pores, and dull looking skin. I really wanted to love this but it just didn't do what it says. :(

          Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

          I bought the makeup kit along with the skincare kit for Pur Minerals. Unfortunately the skincare kit completely dried out my skin. After putting on the mineral makeup, it dried and irritated my skin as well. Despite using the primer, I could still see my pores and lines very well, especially seeing how dried out and tight my skin was. Unfortunately, I will no longer be using this product.

            • 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.
