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.

Luv this powder foundation. The coverage is unbelievable. Pur is pure to my skin. I am in my 50's and still have breakouts. But rarely since I have been using this product
Rachel from DC
I was super skeptical about powder foundations but this was absolutely amazing. It's very smoothing and covers all the redness on my face and never looks cakey. I use it by itself or over liquid foundation as setting powder
Not what I was looking for...
Nic from Pasadena, CA
Compact has a very heavy solid acrylic bace would have been a perfect place to put an applicator so compact can be used for daily use on the go...
Looks like a mask/caked on

I've tried this in the past but now in my 40's... this foundation is not a good fit for my changing skin,. The coverage comes on thick and caked. The powder settles into fine lines and makes your face look really dry. I have combo skin and this really looked bad on my face. The powder would come off in some places on my face and cake on in other areas. Bummed about this not working out.

I love it so far
I wanted to love this but....

I was informed that this foundation powder would really give me good coverage without looking oily. It's weird because it went on smoothly but it just sat on top of my skin but made my pores more apparent. Also, I have oily skin and I want something with a matte finish but within a few hours, my skin looked shiny and that is NOT what I want. All these foundations that have the word "mineral" in them make me look shiny. I am tired of looking shiny from all the years of having oily skin.

Why would anyone put RETINOL in a foundation. You are never supposed to use retinol during the day/sun exposure. That is dangerous and most definitely going to give a sunburn which is what exactly happened to me. The SPF in this is SO low that this doesn't even protect your skin.
There is also Shea Butter in this product. Shea Butter is extremely heavy and a known comedogenic ingredient. I haven't broken out in a year and this foundation make me breakout like crazy.
Nice color match though. It's a nice finish, but only wears well for about 5 hours then starts looking very cakey.

This is a beautiful powder foundation. I wanted to purchase it for years but they didn't have my shade… I am extremely fair. But they have updated their shades and the lightest one is a perfect match for me! After I finish my make up I spray my face with the urban decay all nighter ultra glory and it is perfection!!
I'll buy this again.

It's great since it's an all in one product but is expensive.
Sue c from Arizona
I wanted to love this product, reviews were good. The first problem was it arrived damaged, the top of it was cracked and I was not able to close it correctly. I was not able to bring it with me anywhere due to the inability to close it. I used it at home only, it was ok but not great. Then about 3/4 of the way through it, the remaining powder just crumbled to pieces! I had to throw it away. It had never left the house, so weather elements were not a factor. Will not be buying again.
Love it. It was recommended by the Ulta store Associate.
Teri from Brandon
Great alternative to liquid foundation - especially for summertime, daily use.
Katie from Vardaman
I absolutely love this foundation! I have seen a drastic difference in my acne since I started using this product. It doesn't last all day unless I use setting spray but that is with any powder foundation but I am willing to work around anything for clear skin!!
Love if as always

I use this over the tinted moisturizer and it gives me the coverage I need all day.
Great medium coverage
Romi from Charlotte, NC
I like using this powder, it goes on great with a flat kabuki style brush. It's lightweight and looks natural.
I will not buy again
DR from Tucson
I did not like this powder. It caked in wrinkles. I was looking for something that would smooth lines and reduce pores.
I use this powder every day.
