I forgot how much I love pressed powder mineral makeup. It is so quick and easy to apply. It acts as both foundation and concealer. And it feels like silk on my skin.
How wonderful to receive a surprise package from PUR Cosmetics today with two compacts of their 4-in-1 Pressed Powder Mineral Makeup in two different shades, Light and Blush Medium! To celebrate their 10th anniversary partnership with Ulta Beauty, PUR Cosmetics has launched the Limited Anniversary Edition of their 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup and Chisel Brush.
Right off the bat, I was mesmerized by the stunning silver, bling-worthy limited edition compacts. Wow, just wow. The compacts look like a celebration all by themselves. And the soft, densely packed chisel brush makes application a breeze. Frankly, I couldn’t wait to dig in. So I snapped a few quick photos and got right to work.
Here are closer looks at the two shades: Blush Medium on the left and Light on the right:
At this age, I must wear powder foundation over primer. In fact, these days I wear all foundations over primer. So I first applied Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. Then, I used the PUR Cosmetics Chisel Brush to apply the 4-in-1 Pressed Powder Mineral Makeup in Light, a neutral shade.
The silky powder foundation is all the things that I listed above that I look for in a powder foundation. It provided medium coverage for me because I didn’t build it up too much. I took out my concealer brush and applied more foundation where I needed it to cover my dark spots. That’s one of the things I love most about powder foundation – not needing a separate concealer! And my skin feels sooooooo soft – I have to force myself not to keep feeling my face 🙄
I think powder foundation is so perfect for hot, sticky weather like we’re still having. But because any powder foundation can emphasize my lines and wrinkles, next time I will use my heavy duty anti-aging primer from Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum.
The PUR Cosmetics 10th Anniversary Limited Edition 4-in-1 Pressed Powder Mineral Makeup compacts are available at Ulta Beauty where they’re priced at $34 and the Chisel Brush is $25. The gorgeous silver pressed powder compacts come in 6 shades: Porcelain, Light, Blush Medium, Golden Medium, Light Tan, and Golden Dark. Check out the shades on the Ulta website to see which would best suit you. I must mention that it has SPF 15 so you may need to be sure you’re using sunscreen in your moisturizer or a separate sunscreen for more protection. The powder foundation has a very light, sweet scent that I enjoy though it fades after a few minutes of wearing it. BTW, I noticed that there was an expiration date on the box – May 2020. I thought it was useful info! PUR Cosmetics is made in the U.S., and it is a cruelty-free brand.
Since I applied my foundation, I figured I should keep going in spite of the fact that I should’ve taken a shower before I started all this. I desperately need to wash my hair. And I had just finished running a couple of miles in 83 degree weather. But who cares, right? I couldn’t wait to try this new foundation makeup! So I soldiered on and applied the rest of my makeup for a quick, casual look.
Here’s what I used:
- Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer
- PUR Cosmetics 10th Anniversary LTD Edition 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup, shade Light
- Milk Makeup Lip & Cheek, shade Perk
- Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eye Primer Potion
- Mally Cream Eye Shadow Stick, shade Under the Taupe
- IT Cosmetics No Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil: lid and tightline
- Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
- Sephora Waterproof Crayon, shade Flirting Game, lower lashline
- Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner, shade The Brides
