Pur Cosmetics

Pur Cosmetics is a new brand for me so when I received a few products for review purposes, I was very excited about it. I'm reviewing a few of the products today, I will list them down below: 

Pur Cosmetics Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation, Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow, Pressed Powder

Pur Cosmetics Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation Ingredients


Pur Cosmetics Correcting Primer Illuminate & GlowThis primer preps your face for smooth makeup application with nourishing ingredients like Shea butter and vitamin A. Pur Cosmetics Correcting primer adds a instant glow to dry dull dehydrated skin and It minimizes the appearance of pores. It contains Shea butter, mica and silver ear extract which helps hydrate your skin and give it a healthy glow with a smoother dewy soft finish. The texture of this primer is very light and creamy, it does provide some hydration to the skin however I don't think this is a primer you should use on a daily basis. I always wanted to achieve a dewy glowy looking base and this primer is definitely a must if you like a dewy finish look. It applied evenly leaving my skin smooth and a little shiny, I noticed my foundation went on very smoothly and it didn't exaggerate any dry patches. I didn't notice any color correcting I don't think its meant for that, it just left my skin smooth and ready for a flawless foundation application. You can use this primer with powder foundation as well as liquid foundation. I have large pores and I tend to stick to something like the Benefit Porefessional and my HG Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer and this one is a little too shimmery for my liking. Then again its great for days when you want to get that perfect glowy base, also it contains AHA which means you must wear a sunscreen while using this primer. I personally could do without the AHA in my primers but this is a brand that focuses on skincare that goes into your everyday makeup. In conclusion this is a great primer for all skin and specially for those who loves a beautiful glowing skin.  

Pur Cosmetics Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation- This is a new foundation from Pur Cosmetics which is meant for dry dehydrated skin, acne prone skin, mature skin, sensitive, oily and normal skin. Its packaged in a tube with a clear tip, I love the packaging its very easy to use and it allows you to avoid any mess. I usually shy away from dewy/glowy foundations cause they never worked for me in the past due to my combination oily skin. My skin have been dry lately since I started using Retin-A so this was the perfect time to put this foundation to test. This foundation is formulated with a water complex sourced from Swiss Alps, it delivers your skin with long lasting hydration. It is also formulated with Ceretin Complex and Vitamin E, these ingredients helps smooth, firm, nourish and deeply hydrate your skin. For the past two weeks I've been testing this foundation and I immediately fell in love with the light weight, silky smooth texture. It has a watery consistency like the Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation ( Review here ). The thing I love most about this Water Serum foundation is that it blends very easily giving you almost a skin like finish, which makes this foundation perfect for everyday look. This foundation have light to medium coverage and I prefer that when it comes to foundations, this can be layered without being too cakey. I did use a concealer, this alone didn't do much for my dark circles and also it didn't oxidize on me. This foundation comes in five shades Light, Medium, Tan, Dark and Deep.  I received the shade Medium which was teeny bit peachy on me so I have to get the shade Tan and mix them together for a perfect match. For a light coverage foundation the wear time of this foundation kind of impressed me, I got a total of 8-9 hours of wear.

Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 15

Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 15- This Pressed Mineral Powder is a another winner in my book, it has great coverage, its lightweight, blends easily and its very long lasting. This powder is packaged in a thick compact and I have a bad habit of dropping things, I've already dropped this twice and somehow it survived! You can wear this powder alone or use it to set a liquid foundation. On days I feel lazy and I want minimal makeup on my face I reach for powder foundations and this is a perfect option for that. This Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation comes in eleven shades, I received the shade Tan, this is a pretty good match it will be even a better match now, since I tend to get a little dark during summer time. I also received a Powder Brush which I didn't get the chance to use due to me being lazy, I didn't get the chance to wash it. I used a Sonia Kashuk flat top brush to buff out the powder and I did notice some products kick up. It didn't cling on to any dry patches it just left my skin with a subtle matte finish while covering my imperfections. This would be ideal for oily skin as well as dry skin, just be sure to prep your skin well. 

Pur Cosmetics Browder Perfecting Brow Powder 

Pur Cosmetics Browder Perfecting Brow Powder 


Pur Cosmetics Browder Perfecting Brow Powder- This Brow Powder is meant to give you a effortless natural look to your sparse uneven brows. Browder Brow powder comes in three shades Blonde, Medium Brown, Brunette. I received the shade Medium Brown, its a perfect shade for me however I don't think the packaging is very realistic. The product itself is really good its very pigmented, blends easily, long-lasting, gives your brows a natural look but the powder goes all over when you pull the applicator out. I figured out a way to avoid fallouts on my face, I take the applicator out on top of a tissue that way it falls on the tissue and then I use a angle brush to apply the powder, after that I lightly go over my brows with the applicator. Overall this Brow Powder is pretty good but I just wish it wasn't so hard to work with, I'm hoping Pur Cosmetics will change the packaging in the future.

Overall
I'm really impressed with Pur Cosmetics products, The Water Serum Foundation and The Pressed Mineral Powder are both a hit. The top picture is taken with flash and the bottom is without flash, I didn't notice any flashback which is a plus and the brow powder did give my brows a soft natural look. All the products contains AHA along with other ingredients that's beneficial to your skin so if you're looking for a makeup line that contains skincare benefits then look no farther, Pur Cosmetics got you covered.
