Most Helpful Positive Review This blew me away!
I tried this product in-store after an Ulta employee told me they had an orientation about the product and that it was worth a try. I was curious about the foundation but was hesitant. Either way, I tried it and was STUNNED by how well shade TG6 matched my skin. It blended right in.
So, I bought it, took it home, and tried it on the next day when I went to school. The foundation gave me amazing matte coverage with very little effort and the concealer wand is a neat little bonus, although I don't use it much for that. It held up outstandingly well in the hot South Florida humidity and did a really good job controlling my oils. At the end of the night, my forehead was only very mildly dewy instead of the oil slick it usually can be.
What I really like is that it's matte but doesn't make my face feel tight and it also feels surprisingly light. Sometimes I forget I have the stuff on. If I want a more "natural" look, I'll apply it with a sponge and for a more flawless look, I'll use a kabuki brush. Sometimes I'll just apply the foundation, bronzer, mascara, and lipgloss and I am good to go. I've had no breakouts or side effects from using it, but I do advise to wear sun-protection while wearing during the day due to a few of the ingredients, which can make skin sensitive to the sun.
Long story short: this is currently now my holy grail foundation for my oily-combo skin. I love it better than my Fenty Pro Filt'r and it does everything I need it to do without fuss. Pur came through with this one.
Most Helpful Critical Review On the fence
Ok so I purchased this because of YouTuber - Raw Beauty Kristi, she lives this foundation & we've loved the same foundations in the past (CoverGirl Vitalist) & so I was SURE I was going to love this too. But it's a little more matte than I like, however the shade I chose is just a little too light for me, so I'm going to exchange it, but my concern is that if I do, there won't be a shade that matches in the light/medium range but still having the very cool/pink undertone I need. Generally it's difficult to find a very cool shade that falls in the light-medium range, usually people who are really pink are more fair & when you get darker, you also get warmer within the foundation shades. I mean, companies LABEL their shades as cool & they may appear to have a cooler undertone especially if your skin has a very yellow/warm undertone to begin with. But most brands don't have shades that are pink enough for me. I don't want to spend the money on a high end foundation only to have to "make it work" which is what I end up doing most times. So I just stick with the one brand that I know will always have my proper shade AND undertone - CoverGirl is thee only brand that has light-medium & that very pink undertone. So that's what I use. I'm going to see if there's a darker shade that matches me. If not I'll try another brand at Ulta that might - CoverFX.

My review is based on using this as a concealer not a foundation and I can't recommend it enough. It leaves a nice glow, it goes on really smooth without a cakey feel and stays on ALLLLLLLL DAYYYYY . I've used just about every concealer on the market including tarte and I'd say this is even better. Can't go back to any other concealer after using this.
I would not buy again
Makeup junkie from AZ
Sorry, just not a good foundation. I should have gone into an Ulta versus trying to find a foundation online. I am a cool tone and even with using the foundation finder, the shade was/ is too orange. The foundation doesn't last long. I have tried with and without a primer and get the same results. Also, I still need to use a concealer.
best full coverage long wearing foundation for oily skin
K. N. from Boston, MA
Legit... this is one of my top 3 foundations. This, Fenty and L'Oréal 24hr. I wore the PUR foundation in Mexico and through the heat and partying, it looked flawless. Makes my skin look smooth. No separation at all. I have a super oily t-zone but this definitely has some oil control because I never ever have to blot or touch up.
Gina from Arizona
I just bought this foundation last weekend and I love it so much. I found the perfect shade match. I have oily/combo skin. I had no issues with the foundation looking cakey or break outs or even looking oily. My skin tone is pretty even on its own so with this my skin looks even better. It looks very natural on me.
Love this product!!
Melissa from Pennsylvania
I've reached the age where you realize you should have started taking care of your skin much sooner. I love how this product goes on and stays on your skin. It doesn't cake in fine lines or make your face look dry.
I am So disappointed in the lack of advertising of Retinol
Becka from Plano, Texas
I chose pur cosmetics as my go to brand while pregnant because their products are advertised to be clean, healthy and high performing. While this foundation was my very favorite, I was Shocked to learn that Retenoid is used in almost all of their products. This is not a healthy choice ingredient. In fact this ingredient can cause birth defects if a women uses while pregnant. I am So disappointed in their lack of informing the consumer of this high risk ingredient. I only learned about it through a video of theirs advertising their new holiday line. They mention retinoids is used in all their products. And when I went To my foundation to my shock yes it was in there. This is grossly irresponsible of the brand to do. Never using again.
Just so good

Save your money
Moolee from Florida
This is the worst, it's super cakey, for me it's a big issue around my make area it starts cracking it doesn't look good at all. i bought it thinking it was gonna be a great foundation due to the hype it was getting. Do yourself a favor and don't buy this
On to the next
Eeron from san jose
Did they change their formula? The first time i used it a little went a long way....now Its the complete opposite.. and it makes my face SOOO oily throughout the day,.
Ash from Gulfport, MS
Was very disappointed. Told it was ultimate coverage and the coverage was minimal at best. Made me look very red also and I was color matched.
Would be great for a different skin type
A Adams from Grove Hill, AL
I have combination/oily skin type, usually just use a pressed powder but wanted to try something new for everyday wear. This was recommended by a store associate for my sensitive skin. Putting it on was great but about two hours in to my day my T zone looked blotchy and just not good. I wanted to love this and make it work but unfortunately will be returning.
Dina from Mesa,AZ
I love the PUR products
Best as a concealer for me
Juju from Powhatan va
I am 61 and struggled to find a skin match in this. After going 4 shades darker than my original choice, I found a choice that's actually is a great concealer. Less is more also. Nice consistency.
Only foundation i will use
MarzBarz from Texas
This foundation has been the best thing that has happen to me this 2020 year. I love that i can spot conceal or get a full coverage. It stays on even with mask on al day. Has actually helped with me maskne. And we all know we are all getting acne now since wearing the mask all the time. I will never go back to anything.
Belle415 from Sacramento
I've read the Reviews prior to purchasing this item. However I disagree with the comments saying that their foundation separated. If you know how to do make up right and in the correct order then you won't have issues at all. I wore this foundation all day and I've never had it crease. It's super lightweight it doesn't feel heavy or cakey at all. The only downfall is that it didn't last at all. Usually my other foundations lasted me at least five months but this has lasted me only about a month and I'm not sure why because I wear foundation once a week
Literally the worst. Cake face, creasing, transfer!
Lana from Macon, Georgia
Literally the worst foundation I've ever used. I bought it because Raw Beauty Kristi raved sooo much about it. I had such high hopes. It creases sooo bad. Doesn't fully set, to the point it shifted on my face. It oxidized and made me look orange. It's just horrible. There's a non matte/Dewey finish and then there's this foundation. I wish I hadn't spent so much money on this. Normally I love Pur and have used this brand for years but this just ain't it. The lightest shade was really dark and I'm not even the lightest shade normally in other brands. I tried this foundation about 5 times and did all sorts of things different (primer, no primer, set, no set etc) and it just never looked right. It's so cakey looking and I went in sparingly with the product. It clings to ANY problem you have on your face. Save yo money for something else cause this AINT it.

Product is great.
Hard to Find color
Tennessee from lompoc
Looks like a thick paint on my face. I'm taking this back today.
Definitely give it a try if you can find your color!!!!
spookysparklingskin from west palm beach, fl
literally my new favorite foundation. I have a good amount of acne flare ups and scars from my younger years and this stuff always covers all of it. all while delivering a nice soft smooth airbrush finish. I work for Ulta and this is now one that I reccomend the most
Not great sadly
Nicole from USA
I had seen some great reviews for this foundation. I was super excited to try it because it sounded amazing. Sadly this one ended up being a big let down. My face just looked cakey no matter how I applied it. Any imperfection I had it was like the foundation settled around it and accentuated it even. I really wanted to like this product but unfortunately it is a big no for me.
I wanted to love this so much!
PUR foundation from Gray, GA
This foundation actually goes on great! It's very lightweight and has a soft feel once applied BUT IT DOES NOT STAY ON WELL AT ALL! Half way through my work day there are creases all over my face and place where the make up has come off all together. Now, I am in the healthcare field and I am sure masks aren't helping but I've even noticed it on weekend where I haven't even been wearing a mask. I do have very oily skin so maybe this is just a bad match😔
Ibolt15 from Las Vegas
I really wanted to like this but even with expensive primers it didn't look good. I feel like it made wrinkles in my face. Will not buy again.
Dana from Texas
Great coverage! I haven't found anythjng better!
Broke me out and separated...
Arely from odessa, tx
oily combination skin...
I tried 3 shades of this foundation. the third time it was perfect, but every time I tried it my face got itchy! When i would remove the foundation my face would be bright red and have spots everywhere. I tried to make it work with different primers but it clung to any dry patches and completely came off if i got oily...
great if used sparingly when u have oily skin
Jen from Phoenix AZ
so when I first tried this over a Pur moisturizer, I must have used too much of both because it made my face feel sticky. But when I lessened the amount of both, I found that it was much more workable though I did have to use a setting spray after the foundation and again after the powder. I have scars on my face that were amazingly covered by this product and it only took two pumps on my beauty blender to blend evenly and effectively all over my face. It stayed on my face for over 12 hours which amazing in Phoenix, AZ, and it seems to blend well with my drugstore primer. a little bit goes a long way as long as you know how much is too much. I'm happy with the product after much experimentation.
