    Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

    Wow!!! This is such an amazing product. As someone who has wasted their money trying several different brands, that don't live up to the hype this product delivers. I purchased the trial size kit in porcelain and was pleased with the results. Excellent Primer it is neither oily or tacky like other brands, and feels like silk when applied. The foundation powder gives excellent buildable coverage. Furthermore, the bronzer included in the kit is the perfect shade to give pale girls like me that perfect sun kissed glow without looking like you just stepped out of a Willy Wonka movie. Also, for those like myself who need directions on how to properly apply to achieve great results. I greatly appreciate having the step by step directions printed on the back of the box, very handy! This cosmetics brand just won a new customer for life, I will never go back to other disappointing brands ever again. Thank you so much Pur Cosmetics.

    Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

    Everybod raved so much about this, that I couldnt wait to try it. The sales lady who recommended this product said she used and her skin looked flawless. The main problem was that it was impossible to match my skin tone; the lighter was too light and the darker was too dark and 'orange'. I think it was called Golden dark or something like that. I felt very orange, which is unusual as I am a light skinned, african american female. My face itched also. I returned this primarily because the color was so off for me. It seems to work well for many others though...I guess I am just unusual. On a side note, the sales people were extremely helpful and courteous

      Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

      The primer is great, the foundation is perfect for me, and the bronzer is very natural looking on my skin, and the mascara works well. I apply the foundation and bronzer with a different brush because it sheds way too much (yes, I washed the brush before I used it). Just a great starter kit that made me want to keep coming back to try Pur Minerals products.

      The product is great. I was disappointed by the brush in the kit. Bristles fell out all over and wont stop. So I had to get a new brush.

                    • 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.

                        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.
