Pür Minerals- Makeup Foundation and Chisel Brush

I've been using Mineral Makeup for over five years and probably will be using it for the rest of my life. It just feels lighter and more natural on my sensitive skin and also gives me more control of the coverage. If I need more, I just buff on more mineral powder and doesn't feel heavier, which is a plus! Who needs to feel cakey?

So, I recently came across another minerals makeup product that I had to try- Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation. I actually found out about this company last year through Allure Magazine. Their 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup foundation won the 2008 Allure Best of Beauty Award in the “Best Natural Selection.”- what an honor! After trying this out, they deserve to win this award.

Coverage & Finishing: What I like most about the Pür Minerals Pressed Foundation is that the formulation combines 4 steps into 1. I like to do my makeup in less than 15 minutes, if possible, so I like to use products that will save me time! Instead of having to use a concealer or a finishing powder separately, I just use this one product. I received the right amount of coverage for my face overall, and I was also able to build the intensity when used directly to conceal blemishes and my under-eye circles. The finishing is also amazing; my skin looked polished and healthy.

Chisel Brush: This compact foundation is used alongside with their Chisel brush, made of a sturdy see-through plastic handle that can actually stand upright. All my other brushes just flop to the side when I place them in my brush holder.

The width of the bristles on the brush is just the right size to evenly swirl across the compact. After getting the powder onto my brush, I gently buff into my skin.

To remove excess powder that may appear on the top layer of the pressed foundation, dab a brush in short quick motions to let the bristles get the remaining powder. This can be used for a final touch up of your face.

Above is a swatch of their shade Porcelain. My face is darker so I need to wear the Light shade instead.
