We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Pür fans are the best! Last week, blogger Heather at Family Friendly Frugality tried our NEW 5-Piece Start Now! Essentials Collection with amazing results. Read her story below:
I’ve had bad skin since I was in my early pre-teens. There were times that I stayed home from school because my acne was so painful.
Now that I’m approaching 30, my skin is somewhat better, but plenty of scars still remain. I also still breakout quite often. It’s in different areas now and it’s not quite as painful, but as a 29-year-old woman, it’s still very frustrating.
Typically, my makeup of choice is a thick liquid foundation. Of course there’s plenty of concealer and a good caking of pressed powder on top as well.
I did try a brief stint with mineral make up a few years back, but during my pregnancy with my daughter my skin changed and it just didn’t seem to be compatible with my complexion any longer.
Needless to say, I was a bit hesitant when I received my Pür Minerals 5-Piece NEW Start Now Kit! in the mail. I just wasn’t sure it would work for me.
Not only that, I am a mom, so my time to get ready is very limited.
The first thing I did was put some of the Neutral Primer on my face. It was very light and not greasy feeling at all. I let it dry and then started to sweep on the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup in a circular motion. I was so surprised at the coverage! I also loved the Chisel Brush that they included in the package. It was nice and soft on my face.
I used a bit of the Mineral Glow as blush and swept the Impact+ Mascara on my eyelids. So pretty!
I love the coverage of this makeup. You wouldn’t think a powder could feel this light, but cover so well. I have tried other mineral makeup, and I honestly think Pür Mineral’s is top notch above the rest!
