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 oily skin and this powder foundation is one of the best. Great coverage and keeps me matte. I recommend 100%!!!
MellieC from Spokane, wa
very very sheer to light coverage, was expecting a little more coverage. only built up slightly to more of a light coverage. a lot of kick up in the pan. pretty color though.
Driest skin ever and I love it.
CarrieB from Ohio
Babbbby when I tell you my skin is dry…. It's DRY!!!! I'm 44, some fine lines and pores big enough to haul bb's around in…. I initially didn't buy this to wear alone, I planned on using it to set my foundation and add even more coverage, but I used it alone as foundation and I really love it! My face doesn't feel dry, it actually feels creamy and it's a light to medium coverage which is fine for work or errands and it's fast, it made applying powder blush, bronzer and highlighter that much faster, I got ready in 10 minutes today! A new record for me. I did major skin prep before but I always do, because my skin is so dry and I didn't powder to set, just did setting spray. My skin looks dewy and it smoothed out my texture and pores and fine lines look better than normal. It's awesome! Highly recommend for fast everyday make up!!!!
Do NOT recommend for oily skin
Amani from New Jersey
I have normal / combination skin and never have to really blot my skin after a full day of wearing makeup. When you first put it on, it's such a light and beautiful finish and does not feel heavy on the skin. After about 4-5 hours, it gets very oily and emphasizes your pores, so much that I can't wait to take it off. Didn't expect to be oily like this with a powder foundation. I never have this problem when I use even drugstore foundation and setting powder. I'm conflicted because I really do love the look and coverage, but it goes downhill after a few hours! I've tested this consistently and it happens every time. Sad!
Okok from San Francisco
Tried it on the day I received it.
And returned it on the same day.
Glad I tried because I really determined that I would never try again any cheap foundations in my life again. It's always a wasting time and money.
Very natural and light weight
Atlmakeupjunkie from Atlanta, GA
It doesn't offer full coverage, but a more buildable medium coverage. Makes my skin look so natural and I barely feel it on my face. I would recommend a good skin prepping to prevent any clinging to dry patches, however, a quick setting spray will help with that. I use the bare minerals to set it with and it's the best my skin has ever looked. I received that recommendation from another girl at the store who was purchasing the same powder.
Sandee from New York, NY
Don't look any further, this is my favorite powder. It is holy grail status. I am surprised it isn't talked about more. Don't think about, but buy it!
Love this product!

Product goes on smooth.
Georgia Mom from Marietta, GA
I tried this foundation for the first time this summer and initially loved it. The Ivory LP5 matches my skin color perfectly. Unfortunately, within a week my skin started breaking out and itching like crazy! The foundation was the only new product I was using so I stopped and within the next week my skin issues cleared up.
Love it perfect shade
KC from Texas
Great foundation just light enough with coverage. And it's very gentle and doesn't cause any irritation or dryness
Love this product
Nancy Nurse from Burke VA
My only complaint would be that it doesn't include a "puff". When PUR first came out with this, it was included.
Emphasizes Enlarged Pores, Patchy
MoreClosetSpace from San Francisco, CA
I do not get the hype at all! I have tried using a loosely packed brush, a denser brush, the Real Techniques sponge made for powder, and all of them gave me polka dot patchy face! It emphasized the pores on my cheeks and looked really patchy on my nose in particular. I will say that it did not setting into my smile lines, and it doesn't feel too heavy (but also not the lightest weight powder foundation).
This might be ok for someone without enlarged pored, but there is still a patchiness issue.
V LeBow from Arkansas
This pressed foundation is amazing! The coverage is amazing, it has SPF, and it doesn't cause me to break out! Also my skin feels super soft when I'm wearing it!
I have been using this for years!
Ringoroll from DFW
Fantastic powder foundation with SPF that won't break the bank. A little goes a long way! Nice range of colors (I use Vanilla - a great neutral shade for light skin tones) and the not too thick consistency doesn't cake up. I've used this product for years! It's convenient in a compact for on the go!
Love this Product
tbone from MICHIGAN
I have bought every liquid foundation possible. It all melts off my face by noon. I talked to a wonder Ulta associate who pointed me in the direction of this product. no liquid only powder. this was a game changer. My makeup looks flawless. I'm so happy that I asked what I could/should do differently.
I've been using this product for years.

I apply powder with a brush and use an toner mist to set the powder.

I like to use powder foundation in the summer when it's hot. I used a different brand and ran out when i saw this one at Ulta Bonus, it was on sale through the App! I'm so happy I did. It goes on beautifully and blends so well I don't feel like I'm wearing anything at all. Definitely my new fav!
Great as a bronzer!!!
Lely from Florida
I have been using this as a bronzer for months, and I love it!! I went up a few shades. no breakouts!!
I have purchased this item multiple times
Molly the Mermaid Yogi from Palmdale, CA
I received a sample of this product in an Etsy bag and loved it. When my sample ran out I started purchasing it at Ulta. It has been easy to find colors that match my complexion and it covers imperfections with ease.
Yes I would.

I use on my face,it's easy to use on my face.I just would like for the make up to be on sale more often through out the year,
fatsucat from FL
I love this powder and sometimes use it as a setting powder over tinted moisturizer. Or, right after applying SPF. It helps with my oily t-zone. The compact may seem a little thick, but it helps protect the powder in case of fall (I dropped it on concrete and the powder was fine, just a chip on the compact). I use shade MN3 for my light-medium Asian skintone.
My go to foundation
AD from Mn
This powder foundation is perfect coverage not heavy and no creases! I have been using for many years.
I am absolutely obsessed with this foundation
SJoy from Washington, DC
I have been trying for ages to find a good foundation. I was using iL Makiage but it made me feel too cakey. Purchased this on a whim, and holy cow, I'm in love! I have fairly light skin that's tanner for the summer, and an L6 is absolutely perfect for me (I expect I'll have to go one shade lighter for my winter shade). It stays on for ages, and it looks so natural on! It's not full full coverage, so I usually use concealer on any spots on I want to fully cover, but otherwise it's fantastic!! I've been using it everyday for work, and I haven't had any breakouts! The only area I have problems with is right between my brows, since that area is drier than the rest of my face, but I just use a beauty blender for that area as opposed to my foundation brush!
This stuff seriously lasts all day, even when I'm sweating in the DC humidity! And when it starts to fade, it doesn't look patchy!
Really great on my skin
Tay from Tennessee
I've tried many different brands and finding one that sits well on my oily skin is hard to find especially one that doesn't feel to heavy. This is day 3 of wearing it and I'm so impressed! I feel confident and it looks so natural. Buy this product!
