    Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

    This didn't look like a normal powder on. Not cakey or rest into pores, it looks more like a light flawless foundation or tinted moisturizer. Definitely use the primer first though. The primer doesn't settle into pores and I love the anti aging benefits as well. I like being nice to my skin.

    Everything was great, except for the brush, which is why I bought this specific item. whenever you use the brush it just leaves bristles all over your face. Had to throw it in the trash

      It's easy to use, just follow the guidelines they have for you. Most of the time when I wear foundation it looks caked on & you can tell I'm wearing it, but not now! My pores look smaller too. I love it!

      Comments about Pür Minerals Start Now Kit:

      This is great if you want to sample a bunch of Pur products and if you want compact versions. But, do not buy this just to get the included brush. Don't buy this brush at all. I like the shape but after washing it, it sheds constantly. I adore the powder, bronzer, primer, and mascara though. I will be going back to buy full size versions later.

            I have used high end product's for many years, Sense Iam now in my 60's it was time to turn to something new so I searched Pur Minerals and purchased the starter kit. I can not say enough of how wonderful this product is and all my friends have said wow your skin looks great what are you doing different. This is now and will be my makeup. If anyone is thinking about changing makeup this is the one and you will be thankful you purchased it. Thank you Pur Minerals this is a wonderful product I would and have recommended this to my friends.

                The bronzer is great for contouring. I don't use the 4 in 1 powder daily, but it's compact size makes it great for on-the-go touch-ups.

                • 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.

                    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.
