I am a mom stuck in a serious make up rut. I throw on the same brands every day. I do not put much thought into the ingredients or how good it is for my skin. That is so sad. But now that I am a mom I put myself last. Untill now! I just discovered the amazing Pur Minerals!
What is Pur Minerals:
As a beauty trendsetter, Pür Minerals is committed to offering a complete range of fashion-forward, pure pigment colours to suit all skin tones and types. As a skin fitness pioneer, we have taken our formulas one step further by adding skin-loving ingredients —like shea butter and vitamin E — to create a multitasking mineral collection that is always in style, easy to use and good for your skin.
How awesome! I had to try it! I went shopping online and actually spent a long time looking through all of the products. I was amazed. There is a tool, Pur Virtual Looks, that helps you “try on” the colors. There is also a Skin Care Planner and Make Up Planner that helps you choose the right products for your needs and skin type. After much time playing with those tools I decided on the new 4 in 1 pressed power, Pur Intensity Gel Eyeliner and the brushes needed for both: Eyeliner Makeup Brush and .
Pür Intensity Gel Eyeliner (.17 oz/5 g) came packaged in a very small, compact container. When I opened I realized that there is alot packed into that small container. It is in gel form so it does not make a mess like many powders. Eyeliner is one thing I never leave the house without! I do have trouble finding 1 that does not smear or disappear. So I was THRILLED when I this gel liner stayed on and looked fresh all day!
I used the new Eyeliner Makeup Brush to apply the eyeliner. The gel was very easy to apply! I used the instructions online and it was very easy and fast! Because of the unique shape of the brush you control exactly where the eyeliner goes. The combination of the precise brush and the gel makes for very easy application and a very professional look! It is a no-fuss and very easy method and therefore perfect for moms on the go!
My other item that I never leave the house without is is all over powder. I have a small compact that I use as I run out the door. So I really wanted to see how the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation With SPF 15 would compare. I got the Chisel Makeup Brush to help with the application. This pressed powder is unlike any I have ever used before! It is a natural mineral makeup concealer, powder and SPF 15 protection all in one. On their site they call it the “One-minute mineral makeup miracle” and it IS! It goes on clean and fresh with the brush. I did not have the issue I normally do with parts being covered more than others. This compact also comes with a facial sponge for taking this on the go! When I applied it I loved that it looked so fresh and polished! And what is the most impressive thing is that in the HOT Houston heat it does not fade or sweat off. It stays on all day!
My days consist of errands, park visits, store runs, loading and unloading kids and cleaning. What is awesome about Pur Minerals is that even through all of those things I can look and feel amazing. My make up stays fresh from the moment I leave the house till the moment I take it off! That is incredible! This is the perfect make up for a mom on the go! I would consider the 4 items I tried to be the great essentials. If you are just getting started like me you might want to start with these and build from there.
All of the items I tried can be purchase on the Pur Minerals site. The prices are perfect and a bargain for the amount and quality of make up you will receive!
Pur Minerals has partnered with LOLC to giveaway TWO $100 gift cards! You could purchase everything I tried and more with that! OR you could build on what you already have. The choice is completely up to you!
