Pür Minerals; Fashion-forward Pure Pigment Colors {review}

Anyone who knows me will tell you I am very selective about my cosmetics. I only use mineral make-up on my faces, with the exception of my mascara. Mineral make-up is pure color pigment that not only looks amazing on, but it’s healthy for the skin.

When I saw a new line of cosmetics from Pür Minerals, I was excited to take a look into their products. Pür Minerals is committed to offering a complete range of fashion-forward, pure pigment colors to suit all skin tones and types. Pür Minerals has taken healthy cosmetics to the next level 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.

Pür Minerals recently sent me some of their mineral cosmetics to test out. I am never apprehensive about trying new brands, as I always like to look my best. Instead of the wild and funky shades of color, Pür Minerals eye collection is more of a soft natural look.

Take a look at what I received.

1. The Canyon Glow Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio is a compact of pressed minerals. The earthy metallic shades in the compact are three complementary hues, in pink quartz, copper clay and satin brown. The colors glide on smoothly and blend fairly well. One this I really likes about this type of pigment, is there is no loose minerals to drop over the face during application.

2. The Oasis Pout Plumping Lip Gloss is a super shinny lip gloss. The first thing I noticed I found “very cool” was the mirror on the back of the lip gloss. I have never saw anything like it, and think the idea is fab for on-the-go touch-ups. When I first saw the Oasis Pout Plumping Lip Gloss, I really did not think I would like it because it is so natural. I normally go for bold lips in deep shades. To my surprise, I liked the Oasis Lip Gloss for those days when I want a natural look. It goes onto the lips very smooth and adds a very nice glossy shine. The lip gloss is somewhat thick, so it did take me some getting used too, but overall I like it. The color lasts a few hours (unless you are drinking or using your lips), so touch-ups are necessary to maintain the glimmer lips.

3. The Desert Sky Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio is also a compact of pressed minerals in metallic eye pigment. Beautiful shades in antique pearl, burnt rose and cinnamon shimmer look fab together and look great used alone. I really like the cinnamon shimmer shade as an all-over eye shade. The burn rose also looks beautiful as an inner eye color blended into the cinnamon shimmer. The antique pearl is a very soft off white shade that adds just a bit of color.

So, what did I think of the Pür Minerals products?

I am very happy with the Pür Minerals products I received. The eye shadow pigments are beautiful shades that are perfect for cool winter days and for the natural make-up look. While the shades look somewhat dark in the pictures, they are a bit lighter with a hint of shimmer. So, you will not feel like a clown if your not used to dark cosmetics.

I also found the cinnamon shimmer shade in the Desert Sky Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio to be beautiful on my lips. I used a lip brush to collect pigment and applied it to my lips just like lipstick. Once my lips were covered I sealed it with the Oasis Pout Plumping Lip Gloss. It looks really hot under the shinny lip gloss! As a matter of fact, any of the pigments can be used on the lips and can be used as an eye liner when applied wet.

The minerals wash off just as easy as they went on, which is a big plus! I despise make-up that is hard to remove.

Not only does Pür Minerals have nice shades of eye pigments, they also have mineral foundations, powder, lipstick and glosses!

review of pur mineralsIf you like the shades of eye pigment I received, they have an Earthly Treasures 4 Piece Starter Kit. The mineral starter kit will help you get started on the path to healthier cosmetics! It includes mineral glow, Perfect Fit Eye Trio in Canyon Glow (shown above), Pout Plumping Lip Gloss in Oasis, and a Mini Eye Shadow Brush. The starter kit retails for $30!

    I tried Pur Minerals last year. I love wearing makeup, but dont have a lot of time to spend putting it on. This was the perfect solution since I just used the powder foundation…It takes the step of liquid foundation plus finishing powder down to one step.

  2. This is great to read a review on this. I am switching to more natural ‘mineral’ cosmetics myself & it’s good to hear of another good company. I’m very interested in their lip gloss too!

  3. I am more interested in their lipsticks and glosses. I really don’t care about their eye shadows and powders.

  4. I have tried the minerals from various companies and find they are SO light…sometimes you cant even see much. I know I have to go darker and would love the Desert sky one. TOO COOL on that mirror lip gloss! now WHAT took everybody so long to do this!!!??? Id buy that for all 4 of my girls! thanks much!

  5. evelyn goettner says:

    I have family members that swear by Pur minerals foundation. I have been wanting to give it a try. I hate wearing foundations that make me feel like I’m wearing a mask!

  6. Jennifer B says:

    I would love to try the The Canyon Glow Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio the colors look so pretty

  7. Betsy Hoff says:

    I own the mineral glow and LOVE it!

  8. I’d like to try the Oasis lip gloss. I love natural colors and this would work for me. spec@live.ca

  9. I have yet to try Pure Minerals, but have thought about it. After reading this, I definitely will:) jmatek@wi.rr.com

  10. If you can believe it I haven’t jumped on the mineral makeup train yet…though I think when I do I’ll definitely try Pur Minerals. I love that the Oasis Pout Plumping Lip Gloss has a mirror! How smart! Did it really plump your lips? Sometimes the plumping glosses “sting” too much for me. Just wondering.

  11. I Love the Virtual Makeover feature! It makes me want to try out Pur Minerals even MORE.

  12. The colors in the shadow trios are really pretty, and the shape is exactly like the shadow trios from Smashbox!

  13. Linda Davison says:

    I have heard good things from women wearing Pur Mineral Makeup! They look great too so maybe it time for me to get a makeover and try it!

  14. Lisa Foster says:

    I use Pur Mineral and really like the fact that it is good for your skin–I particularly like the natural colors–I don’t wear a lot of make up–so I like colors that blend naturally with my skin,

  15. I like Pur Minerals because it doesn’t cake in the fine lines I am getting as I age (GRR!).

  16. I tried the Pur Mineral makeup but it was not enough coverage for my skin.

  17. Jacqueline Griffin says:

    I LOVE mineral make-up! I would like to try this. jacqgrif@yahoo.com Thank You!

  18. OMG! I love , love love the colors. I have not used Pur other than in Sephora. I wasn’t able to find the right match for my skin tone but, I will be purchasing these eyeshawdow colors thru Ebates tonight. evrywoman@yahoo.com These colors are beautiful thank you for sharing. I’m tickled pink!

  19. Love Pur Minerals, and love the mirror on the back of the lip gloss! That is such a great feature.

  20. Crystal W says:

    I’ve tried mineral eyeshadow but I’m in my late thirties now (don’t tell anyone I’m still claiming 29!) and I’m not sure if mineral base makeup would hide or accentuate my 11 lines and line lines…did it settle into yours? what do you think for over thirty skin? I do like the mineral eyeshadow I have (Raw minerals and some Bare Essentials) though.

  21. These look really nice and are really nice colors.

  22. you know… I can’t wear the mineral foundation so I never really thought about using the shadows, but after reading this, I think I will .. thanks!

  23. love the Canyon Glow Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio in pink quartz

  24. the Oasis lip gloss sounds interesting… I have thin-no lips , as my DH says.. so if it plumps and has one in a slight color, that would be great for me!

  25. mineral cosmetics is so much better for your skin

  26. I love the mirror on the back of the lip gloss! So practical!

  27. rebekah arnold says:
