RealSimple_Pur_CoverFeb11_web For those with sensitive skin, finding the right eye shadow can be a challenge. In addition to finding the right color for a particular mood or look, sensitive skin types must use extra caution to avoid aggravating any skin sensitivities or allergies to certain ingredients. Eye shadows with talc, alcohol or petroleum oils can be particularly problematic for sensitive skin, as these ingredients can clog pores and cause further irritation. Fortunately, Pür Minerals eye shadows are free of these and other common irritants. In fact, Pür’s eye shadows are so gentle, Real Simple magazine named our Perfect Fit Eye Trios the Best Eye Shadow for Sensitive Skin in their March 2011 beauty guide.

In a road test of more than 40 eye shadows, the Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio emerged the sensitive skin winner. “The natural ingredients are gentle on delicate skin,” Real Simple’s beauty editors praised, recommending users “wear the colors solo or layered, or dampen them to use a liner.”

Perfect EyeTrio Goddess_LR Featuring three chic, complementary shades in Halo, Goddess and Desert Sky, Pür’s multitasking mineral eye shadows condition sensitive skin with soothing jojoba oil. The result is a perfectly portable color palette that will elevate any occasion without irritating sensitive skin or clogging pores.
