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 have used for years. It has great coverage, feels light. I normally use under foundation but have used instead of foundation sometimes. Have it color matched, there are many color choices. Often my color is out of stock.

Best foundation I've ever used
Great product lasts very long from Phoenix
I have been using this brand for years, I have tired regular foundation and other powders, even high end. I always end up coming back to this one. I live in Phoenix and we know the summers are HOT! I cannot wear regular foundation so I use this and it makes my skin look amazing. I even wear it in the "winter" lol. It's amazing and it's never cakey! People ask me all the time what I'm wearing because my skin looks so good, I tell them this and they are surprised. I've put several friends and colleagues onto this, and they have all loved it. It applies so easily and cuts my makeup time in half, I do use concealer with a very small dust if setting powder before this and then I apply this. It blends beautifully and evens out my skin so naturally! The summers are hot here and there is no way Im wearing liquid foundation, I use this and it melts onto my skin so beautifully and NEVER FEELS HEAVY! It lasts all day, I never have to touch up and this never makes my skin break out. I recommend this to anyone who is a beginner at makeup or doesn't like full glam.
I'm so impressed! Best foundation EVER!
Marmar from Los Angeles
I usually do not wear any kind face makeup because I do not like how it feels but buying this was a real game changer. This is so light on the face and it really does it's job. I am so happy that I found something that sits well on my face. Best product ever!
Expired product on sale !
Msdestinoble from New York
I tried and my skin broke down so bad. I applied it and it turn gray i couldn't understand why since the undertone's is right then i read couple reviews mentioning they received expired makeup I went and look at the box and they are expired since May 2021 while i purchased them in February 2022. This is a serious issue if a company as big as Ulta cannot keep up with their inventory or try selling on sales their inventories then it's an issue. I'm really disappointed!
Best pressed powder foundation ever!!
Bobbi Jo from Colorado Springs, CO
I've been using this powder foundation for 6 consecutive years and I've never found anything that works as well as this one does! It completely covers my rosacea and keeps my oil under control. I have oily/dry combination skin and this foundation doesn't dry me out at all. Do yourself a favor and buy this!!
Best Powder Foundation EVER
WhiteButterfly from CO
I'm 36- oily skin, large pores, some fine lines. This powder foundation looks flawless on my skin! Doesn't look like I'm wearing anything (which I love) and covers just enough. Blurs my pores and lines and lasts all day. I also love that it's super easy to apply. I use the Elf powder blurring brush and I'm done with my foundation in 30 seconds. This is my fourth one and I am definitely sticking to this for good!!
Mlucas76 from Florida
This is by far my favorite foundation. I'm not a fan of liquid foundations and have always steadied towards a powder base. I first tried this product when I received it for free from a free gift promotion for spending a certain amount. I have combination skin and I feel my face is never greasy with this product. I have purchased this foundation 3 times so far since my first time using it. Thanks Ulta for all for free gifts promotions, I have found so many products I love.
I will continue to use this product
Jul from Wv
Over 40 and still oily and acne prone. Old foundations use to sit on top of the oil by the end of the day. This powder soaks in and blends into my skin nicely even after a long day. Is very light right and doesn't feel heavy.
Van from North Carolina
I got this when it was on sale a few months ago. I absolutely hate this product. It enlarges my pores and makes me look ten years older. It also creates the appearance of fine lines that I don't have. Don't recommend this for anyone
so many compliments
kenna from Atlanta, Ga
I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION. It has great coverage and lasts all day. perfect for the summer!
Nothing like I expected
No idea why this gets good reviews from Tampa
After moving to Florida, i could no longer use liquid foundation as i'd sweat it off within an hour or two. I tried this foundation after an Ulta beauty advisor suggested it and found the reviews backed up her suggested.. but this foundation is AWFUL! Even after applying layer after layer, there just isn't any coverage AND it easily wipes off. I ended up returning it and purchased It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination and THAT foundation was ON POINT!!
If you're looking for something with less than light coverage, perhaps similar to a powder then this might be ok for you. But then again, why not just buy a pressed powder.
Looked heavy and was hard to get off
Camilla from Sedona, az
I have always preferred a lighter foundation so this product was not for me. It was too much. It gave me a "caked on" look and it was hard to remove.

Full coverage powder foundation
Starlight from Augusta, GA
Love this been using it for over 10 years has a great buildable coverage that doesn't feel heavy.
I would but this product again.

Quick and easy, flawless application
Works for me!
Natural beauty from Richmond, Va
I use this product as my foundation and concealer. I don't like to wear heavy makeup and I'm not going to spend a lot of money experimenting with various brands. I used to use Bare Minerals and I liked it fine. An employee at Ulta recommended this brand so I tried it and liked it well enough to use it all and buy again. I apply as much as needed and then I spray my face with rose water and glycerin. Then I use a makeup sponge to pat it all out which makes for a nice finish. The spray and sponge take away the powdery effect and leave a smooth finish that looks like liquid makeup.
Not worth it
Nicnic from Linwood,Ks
It starts out dry, then becomes more like you used a liquid foundation but doesn't look good on me at all. I just don't think these are good for anyone other than teens with great skin. It said it had buildable medium coverage but it was so light nothing at all would be covered. Wish I could take it back.
Brram from Miami
Very little goes a long way. It lasts even after sweating with a mask on!
I'm glad you carry this foundation.
Candace from Tupelo
This has easy application. I have used this for years. Your store was very busy, but the lines went quickly. The associate were nice.
sapphire from California
I used this a few times after getting it and it didnt really wow me , until one day doing my makeup it began turning patchy from using a foundation and primer that didn't layer very well, instead of a loose powder i opted for this, and buffed it all over my face with a dense fluffy bush, then i was instantly wow'ed i couldnt believe it set, blurred and fixed everything,!
Selaromt from RGV
I have tried many powders and this by far has been the best! It blurs my pores and has a beautiful finish.
Mary B from Nashville
This product is SO AMAZING! I am 48, with beginning wrinkles and fine lines… I have acne scars and skin that can't make up its mind if dry or oily. This foundation covers completely, without being "cakey". It covers redness and leaves my skin SO SMOOTH! I swear my skin feels better when I take it off also! Love love love this product!!
