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!
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.

Makes my skin itch which is unacceptable. Its because the second ingredient is Bismuth. If they reformulated I would consider buying again, otherwise, Id suggest avoiding it, especially if you have sensitive or acne prone skin.

For reference I am a 32 y.o dark skinned Black woman with combination oily skin. I feel like now the emphasis is on liquid foundation and powder is seen as setting or something on top of liquid foundation. Nope, I was looking for a powder foundation with coverage that I can brush my eyebrows, brush some powder on, and wear lipgloss and out the door. This is that! I have hyperpigmentation and acne scars and this gave me good coverage. Im genuinely shocked this is sooooo good!

This is a sheer to medium coverage powder foundation. I like a more medium to full coverage in powder foundation. If I didn't have so much acne scaring and pigmentation this would be 5 star rating. The formula is very finely milled and has a bit of a creamy feeling which is nice.

its perfect for a quick makeup look in the morning and it adjusts to your natural color over a couple of hours!

Do not travel with this. I was very delicate with it and it broke within less than a month of purchase. I am still trying to get the powdery off my bag and other makeup. It is very powdery so use a beauty blender instead of brush . I did enjoy it when I had it but I am very disappointed it broke so easy.

I love it

Everyone who tries it, loves it. Perfect for a mo liquid foundation day.

The color didn't match

I've had this for a few months, don't use it every day. It's been sitting in my drawer. It has been OK, decent color match, a little greasy after a couple hours, but I like that it has sunscreen in it. Gradually over time, it started breaking little pieces off in my compact. I had been using a soft brush to apply. One day it broke up entirely into several large pieces that were unusable. Not sure if I can return it at this point.

Gives such a natural look, melts into skin for a soft filtering effect, does not emphasize my fine lines/wrinkles and has sun protection! I use it every day and have re-ordered multiple times because it's the best. I've tried so many other brands... Tarte, Urban Decay and Bare Minerals to name a few and this is way better for a natural look

I love this powder foundation. It is quick and easy to apply and it lasts all day. What I find great about this is that you can adjust coverage based on how you apply it and how much you use. It does not look powdery on me either. I like how it naturally wears off my skin and how looks better at the end of the day compared to when I wear my high end designer foundation.

Always love this product, will keep buying it, went to the store and on line did not have other product I use a lot and it is the Becca mini opal lighter 😒 hope I can find it soon, need it so bad! Thank you

I wanted to try a new powder and read good reviews about this one. I like it a lot. I have used other brand names such as Mac, Clinique, etc. and this is better. I like that it's a mineral powder and it also has SPF.
I'm really sad because I tried to take this on a trip and it broke. I didn't even do anything to make it break...it went all over and I'm still trying to get it off my other cosmetics. I enjoyed what I did use, it can be powdery. I would recommend using with a beauty blender. It can be cakey on dry spots so moisturize first.
Be super gentle if you do buy. This is the most fragile product I've ever bought. I don't think I could recommend or repurchase for the price I paid (just for it to break).

This is hands down the best powder foundation I have ever used. The key is to place on top of moisturizered skin. A little bit goes a long way. Super bendable and the coverage is amazing!
Wendy from Georgia
My favorite powder foundation. It's great for my sensitive skin and provides the coverage I need without looking cakey or heavy.
K from Ca
Ive been using this for about 2 years exclusively now. Ive gone through a few compacts and i love it just as much now as i did then.
You can pat it on for fuller coverage over blemishes, or brush all over for a 'real' skin look but still have your redness/discoloration disappear.
JLK from NYC
Defibatelt recommend trying this. Color match is perfect. I have used Estee Laurder, Mac, Too Faced and Makeup Forever and always come back to this!

I went into Ulta on a whim and figured I'd see if they had anything that peaked my interest. I've been using the same liquid foundation for years and was over looking too shiny/oily. I walked to the Pur section and swatched Ivory on the back of my hand and was shocked to see how well it matched! So I bought the powder foundation, the Friday eyeshadow palette, the lip chubby in sugar plum, and the berry beautiful blush. I am blown away with all the products I bought! I am obsessed. This is my new go to make up brand!!

Gives a very dry flaky coverage
This busted within less than a month all over my makeup bag. It is a bit powdery, best applied with a sponge. I loved it until it exploded everywhere.
Jane from Boise, ID
I have only used this powder a short time but like it. I've been looking for a powder with SPF. I use it over my SPF tinted sunscreen to hide any shine and give extra protection. It only hides the shine without looking like I have powder on. I think it's going to be a keeper.
Candice from Los Angeles Ca
This powder foundation is amazing. I've been looking for a product that has benefits for my skin and this is it. It is also a buildable product. Lays nicely on the skin and color match is perfect!

I've been using PUR mineral presses powder for about 10 years. Although I have switched a few times, I always come back to PUR powder. I love the 4 in-one foundation powder. The coverage and the SPF make me feel good about my face. I've learned the best way to apply it is with a powder brush after my moisturizer and primer have settled in. I don't think I will ever go back to anything else. I even have my two sisters hooked on it.
