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 picked this up while it was on sale last week and I'm quite impressed with it so far. It's the only powder foundation that I've found that really matches my skin tone (light with a neutral, slightly pink/cool undertone). I live in WI a few miles from Lake Michigan and the winter weather and wind really dries out my skin and this foundation doesn't leave my skin looking at all dry. It covers texture and redness well; I'd say it provides medium coverage. It's my favorite powder foundation so far.
Like the shade rage and ingredients, not the finish.
Megs0405 from Phoenix, Az
Purchased this because I wanted a talc-free, quick fountain and it happened to be on sale. The shade matches perfectly (shade matching has caused me problems previously); however, I feel like the coverage is weak and if you build it up to medium/full coverage it looks cakey. Tried various brushes and will continue to try to improve application, but would not repurchase, especially at full price.
Wanted to love it.
TD from NC
I thought this would be my new foundation. Looks so good at first but after a few hours looks so greasy no matter what I try. The search continues.

Miagrace from Riverview,Florida
I received a sample of this and was sure it would emphasize all my wrinkles and make my skin look and feel dry. I was pleasantly surprised that it did not. I love it. The coverage is perfect, the tone is perfect. It's light weight and lasts all day. I absolutely love this and it's so easy and quick to apply vs traditional liquid foundation and then powder. I have found my favorite makeup now! Thank you PUR!
This even covers my horrible dark circles!

I rarely write reviews, but I have to with this foundation. By far the best I've ever used. Amazing coverage but extremely natural-looking. I have HORRIBLE dark circles but I can honestly get away with using just this and no cream/liquid concealer. In love with thjs for face and undereyes
April from Mississippi
I'm not sure what everyone else is doing but I absolutely love this foundation. It's the only one that keeps me from breaking out and has a color that matches my skin perfectly. I use the 4-in-1 primer first then apply with the chisel brush as it suggests. It covers my redness and lasts all day. I hope they never discontinue it.
Jrae from Pittsburgh
I bought this during Ulta's 21 days of beauty sale. The coverage its supposed to provide is minimal. Ive tried different brushes, multiple layers and it looks like barely anything on my skin. I certainly wouldn't buy this at full price, such a rip off!
I love the fact that this product is clean beauty with SPF!
Sue from MA
I use this product in the morning for my SPF.
Aly from Cali
I love it! Feels nice on skin and good that it has spf.
Kimmy from Omaha
Not as pigmented as I had hoped
Antoinette from San Diego, CA
Beautiful coverage, looks very natural on the skin, a great foundation for the humid summer months.
S&H from Stroudsburg, PA
I have been putting off buying this powder because of the price. I decided to purchase it during a beauty steal. I will definitely be purchasing this powder full price! It is perfect. Lightweight, doesn't clog my pores, and looks extremely natural.

Don't waste your money
SassyinSealBeach from Seal Beach
I purchased this during the 21 days of beauty and I'm so happy I bought 2! I tried the color match virtually and it's perfect. Easy to apply, feels barely there and it doesn't emphasize pores or fine lines.

Biggie from Youngstown, OH
I'm having a really hard time since Tarte discontinued their Amazonian airbrush powder and was looking for something comparable. This stuff appears to have a nice light to medium coverage for the first hour and then becomes really chalky and settles into all the wrong places. The search continues…
Easy to use
JJ purdy from Chicago, IL
I don't usually wear makeup aside from eyes and lips. I wanted to even out my skin for pictures in my brother's wedding. This was easy to use wet as a concealer and all over powder. It lasted through pictures and an evening of dancing without needing touching up. So pleased. Using the online questionare helped matched color.
Love this product!
Lilylovesmakeup19 from Milwaukee, WI
I use this as a setting powder for liquid foundation for a full coverage look or just alone with concealer underneath for a light coverage look. I love this product! Amazing powder & conscious beauty! Will always buy this!
Definitely bought again!
Marissa from South Carolina
I've been using this consistently for about 2 years now and it's the best foundation I've ever used for my skin. I've tried so many name brands, even the really hyped ones, and this one still has them beat for me. Never caused any pimples on my face, sits really well (especially since I don't use primer or setting spray. Haven't found any that don't cause me to break out). I have tried it with primer and it sits really well and has a nice finish! It matches my skin perfectly and doesn't oxidize throughout the day. Definitely can use for full coverage or as a concealer by itself. If you have dry skin, just moisturize really well before using and it shouldn't be flakey. I have to use a different moisturizer on my nose area for that reason. Also, it's very lightweight. I forget I'm wearing it sometimes! Gonna keep buying this product for a long time!
quality product but did me no favors
sleepies from Bandon, oregon
with primer, without primer, over liquid foundation, over no liquid foundation, no matter how I tried it this foundation only took in small, pore like circles and transfers really easily.
that being said, it's got coverage and feels like a really high quality powder. the packaging is super sturdy as well!
Haddy from Florida
I ordered this during the 30 days of beauty sale. September 2021
I looked at the box and it expired the previous month ( August 2021)
I'm not happy at ALL
I used it once.. just to sample
It's not worth the 1 star..
Found my perfect shade love the finish!
AlleyKat420 from Bolingbrook
I'm so glad I got this. It's mineral powder foundation so it lets your skin breathe. It's buildable so you can go medium to full coverage. It blends smooth and feels good on my skin. Works great on dry skin love it!
Jen from RI
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!
