Most Helpful Positive Review a miracle for my skin
I've been using Pur Minerals foundation on and off since about 2006. I'm always on the hunt for the newer, better thing. When I saw that Pur had come out with a foundation with added skincare benefits, I was skeptical but I just had to try it. I'm sooo happy I did. My skin has improved so much in the few months I've been using it. My redness has diminished. I don't break out anymore. Overall, my skin just keeps getting better and better. I can even hang around the house without makeup on, which used to make me uncomfortable due to my red, broken out skin. Application is fast and easy...just buff into the skin for a few seconds and you're done. I don't use the Chisel Brush...I use the bronzer brush from Eco Tools and it works great. It's soft and covers a large area at once, so application is even faster. I wear Porcelain, which is a great color match. Even with the great coverage this foundation provides, my skin is still soft and touchable all day. It never separates, gets cakey, or feels like makeup. The oil control is also amazing. I usually become an oil slick before lunch time, and I need a couple blotting sheets to soak it all up...but not anymore! I actually don't even need to blot ALL DAY! I may get a slight glow as the day goes on, but it just looks like natural skin, not oil. I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation for almost 20 years, and I've finally found my HG!
Most Helpful Critical Review Why did Pur Minerals change the formula?
I am so disappointed. My teenage daughter has acne and we have sworn by Pur Minerals for excellent coverage and for not aggravating her breakouts. We have recommended it to many people for that reason. I have no idea why Pur Minerals would make such a big change to their formulation. My daughter started using a new compact a few weeks ago and instantly broke out in an itchy, bumpy rash all over her upper lip, around her mouth, and on her cheeks. We had noticed the new packaging, but I didn't realize the makeup itself had actually been changed. The ingredient list is twice as long! She discontinued using it, and the rash has cleared up. We can no longer recommend Pur Minerals. I really wish they could continue to offer the original formula.

I just got this in the mail this morning and I immediately tried it on. I have oily skin and it went on amazing. I've never seen my skin look so blurred and smooth before!
A little goes a long way
Klara from Illinois
The Ivory shade matched me perfectly. It's really easy to use and buff. However priming is key or else it will settle and create visible fine lines and maximize pores. A pore filling/blurring primer helps it look extremely natural yet flawless.
yup would buy it again

I get very tan in the summer and this powder is awesome! Im normally a light medium in winter. Extremely impressed!! Not turning orange or drying at a dark cinnamon shade
New favorite foundation!
Anna from Cleveland, Ohio
I was looking for something to replace my liquid foundation that would still provide enough coverage to even out my skin tone. This was perfect and included SPF 15!

I love this way more than BareMinerals powder foundation. My face looks so airbrushed and it's such a nice natural finish. This is my new favorite summer foundation.
Old Favorite / New Obsession
aebear from Cleveland, OH
I used this foundation in high school but the shade range was not as great as it is today. Back then the lightest shade was porcelain and now I'm LP5. It blends perfectly into my skin tone and doesn't make me look like a ghost like porcelain did. I applaud pür for increasing their shade range on both sides of the spectrum. It is such a natural finish, I really love this foundation. This is my summer obsession.
One thing is I would like to see a higher spf but I just wear sunscreen underneath and it's fine.

This stuff is great! It looks like you have airbrushed face makeup on. It's pretty pigmented and I have been wearing it by itself. I prefer it applied with a spongy material versus a brush. It breaks down and starts to look naturally shiny again after 8 hours of wear time. I have extremely sensitive skin and this doesn't cause a drop of irritation. This is a new holy grail for me!
Favorite Powder Foundation
Pattie Cake from Bixby, ok
I love the quick application and buildable coverage. Even at my age I can get a break out and this powder covers better than concealer or liquid foundation.
Megan from Lake Barrington IL
I love it! I don't need a foundation with this pressed powder, makes it look like my natural skin! Is perfect!
Candace from South Carolina
I love this!! It is super buildable to wear as foundation, but doesn't feel to heavy. I also use it as powder over my liquid foundation and it works beautifully for that too!

This powder foundation works very well on my oily skin. I find that it covers my acne scars perfectly without looking cake you. I do you pair this with a magnifying setting spray to make it last longer throughout the day. This is especially a great deal if you can find it on sale.
love how it goes on and matches skin tone

Up at 5, walk and feed dogs and cats. Leave house 7:30. Office manager for busy company. No time for complicated beauty routine. I love how easily this makeup applies and matches my skin tone
Great for Sensitive Skin
Candace from Pueblo West, CO
I have sensitive acne prone skin and can no longer wear any liquid foundation. I also have cool neutral skin tone that is hard to find color to match.
Traveling Girl from Lakewood Ranch, Florida
I use this every morning to give my face a nice base. no build up. I live in Florida and it does not
leave marks when i perspire on my face. Love, love it.
Rebel Pretty from KCMO
I have such a hard time with foundation. I've got combination skin with huge pores on my nose that can tend to also be dry. I use this with the IT Cosmetics Kabuki brush and follow up with IT loose powder on my nose only and MAC pressed powder compact over the rest. It's gorgeous! I don't need a full coverage since my only issues are pore size but my skin looks airbrushed with this foundation. It also cuts my getting ready time in half. And as a busy mom of 4 who can't get enough sleep that is worth all the money in the world. I bought this during a 21 Days of Beauty sale and now it's my new holy grail!!
D from MI

Love this foundation. This works great. It's a Must have
My favorite pressed powder
Katie from MN
I love this product. I use it daily and it lasts me a long time. There is ample coverage without looking cakey when I put it on top of my liquid foundation. It is smooth and stays put without melting off. Blushes and bronzers go on top of it nicely as well. I have very fair skin and the lightest shade is perfect and does not make me look like an orange cheeto, as many other face powders do. I have not had any issues with breakouts from this product. Five stars.
Tai95 from Oregon
It has nice texture and doesn't look unnatural or cakey on my face. It helps to keep my makeup in place and gives nice matte finish to my oily face.
Suzrob30 from MD
This is the second time I have bought this. I use it more like a powder or just for touch ups . It feels great, gives silky nice coverage, I need to come try colors on, I think I keep picking too light.
Good solid product
Deb from the office from Tampa, Fl
This is a nice powder foundation. I love Pur products and find the quality really nice. It isn't too heavy and it's easy to use. No issues with it. Recommend.
Absolute love ! Would buy again !

after about a month the powder breaks down into a dust which is very messy and I don't get near the amount of product.
